There is no regulation on hypnotherapy, that is why I recommend the organization ACHE, which is the American Council of Hypnotists Examiners. They provide the highest level of training to practicing hypnotherapists.


An individual has to take over 250 hours of training to be certified, while most other hypnotherapist organizations only require 150 hours, which they could accomplish in two weekends. Also, there are psychotherapists that do hypnotherapy, but a lot of them take one day classes and then call themselves hypnotherapists. I recommend someone who really wants to expereince hypnotherapy to find a true hypnotherapist. A person can't learn about the skill if they only do it part-time or if they only do it everyone once in a while, so look for a person who specializes in the practice to get the full benefit of it.




I recommend for a person to ask how much training they have. The most important aspect of all is the rapport that you have with the person. When you talk on the phone with them and if you feel comfortable, and they answer your questions, and you feel connected to them, it doesn't even matter the skill level as long as you are comfortable with them.

My clients say they have been to hypnotherapists before that creep them out. Some people prefer females, some people prefer males. Age is another important aspect, so the person can relate to that person, versus an older person or a younger person. I always tell my clients don't let cost be your final decision maker, make sure that whoever you talk to you feel comfortable with. That's the most important thing.
