Would You Like to TRULY Master Your Hypnotherapy Skills?

Would You Like to Get Paid to Promote Your Hypnosis Practice?

Become Recognized as THE Hypnosis Expert & Experience Greater Career Satisfaction?

In this new video, I divulge what was definitely, the most important investment I ever made in this profession…

Welcome back! Erika is back with me for this new hypnosis training video here on! In this new free video, we let you in on how teaching has helped us professionally and financially as well as how it has made us become better hypnotherapists

Erika tells her story of how just getting ready to teach her first hypnosis certification course has helped her to both build her hypnosis skills and has helped to establish herself as a hypnosis expert in her community.

Yes, you can become a hypnosis educator by doing some very short and simple things such as giving talks, writing articles, and then moving forward and becoming a “Certified Instructor” who teaches others to do the work of a professional hypnotist helping people.

Do you want to become a much better hypnotherapist? Teaching and preparing to teach is essential to truly integrating the true fundamentals of the work we do and that results in deeply understanding the principles of what we do. This deeper understanding enables you to go much deeper into a level of mastery, the super confident and competent hypnosis professional.

What you must know before you decide if becoming a trainer is right for you:

  • We reveal how this new level of mastery is reached through teaching.
  • Erika tells her secret to using teaching as a way to get free advertising.
  • Being the “teacher” and “author”, positions you as an expert resulting in more clients.
  • How teaching provides more income and greater career satisfaction.

We agree that it’s a “no brainer” getting certified as an instructor and teaching is the best investment of time, money and effort that you can make in yourself as a hypnosis professional once you have sufficient experience doing the work of hypnotism and hypnotherapy.

Finally, here are two very important things to consider now…

If you are thinking of getting certification training in hypnosis (and not yet in our profession) make sure that the instructor and organization that you choose provides an excellent pathway to becoming an instructor as part of your ongoing professional career development. Some organizations may have all those instructor positions already locked up and filled with little chance of this kind of professional development.

If you are already in our profession, did your hypnosis instructor, or does your hypnosis organization provide a clear professional development pathway that includes certification as an instructor? Is that pathway easily accessible?

All graduates of our Banyan hypnosis certification courses are provided with excellent opportunities to become trained as Certified Professional Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy Instructors (CPHIs) like Erika.

Erika and I hope that we have inspired you to seriously consider how teaching can work for you in your professional development and success in our profession!

    In answer to a question that was emailed in to me… Questions, “I’m thinking about certification as a hypnotist but I’m not sure if my teacher would like it if I became a teacher down the road”.

    Personally, I could never recommend that you get certification training from any instructor or organization if they did not actually encourage students to become trainers “down the road”. For our profession to grow this is necessary. That is why we consider it part of the career path in our certification courses.

    Thank you Cal and Erika, at first I was thinking that this was going to be about “teaching” certification courses, but I was thrilled to realize that it was actually about that PLUS doing community classes about hypnosis. Erika has been doing some really great and interesting classes in her community! It is true that we learn so much when we prepare to present it to others. I am working on an upcoming class and I realized that I needed to brush up on some basics so that I can effectively explain a few important principles of hypnosis to my audience!

    Thank you Brenda! And yes I’m glad you liked that twist to this episode – it’s about the benefits of being a hypnosis educator in general and not just teaching certification courses. It makes you a better hypnotist, and be seen as an authority in your community.I learn so much from my clients and students, and having both is very rewarding and it helps to balance out the work I do.

    Thank you Cal & Erika,

    Like Brenda, I was thrilled to hear the twist as well. I am going to start putting myself out there to do some talks/teachings in my community now too.

    I think I had lacked some confidence about content, but since doing 5-PATH training, I now feel competent & confident because of the underlying principles.

    I was asked by my previous trainer to give a presentation recently on the ‘intake interview’ at one of our regular workshops. Of course I jumped at the opportunity with relish…spent considerable time preparing & was fascinated to realise that our training had not really given all that much credence to the pre-hypnosis talk (which as a 5-PATHer we know is critical to get the clients confidence). So of course I covered that in great detail in my presentation & it was well received by everyone. Afterwards, I was told by a few people I really should be a teacher. Now…that has got me thinking. 😊

    As for the email question you got Cal, I agree with your response completely. Human beings can have some funny beliefs sometimes can’t they? It’s the same as when some people get jealous of anothers happiness…as if they might miss out somehow, or there’s only so much happiness available and there won’t be enough left for them.

    I grew up with parents who were restauranteurs and I always remember my dad saying about new restaurants opening close by that competition is great because it challenges him to be the best, cook better food, give better service…just excel! I have always had a good work ethic, working in the family business from childhood, but perhaps that attitude really was ingrained in me more than I realised.
