Master Hypnotist Society Training

Get The Advantage - Hypnosis Training At Its Best
Real Life Hand-On Hypnosis Training

We believe that the best hypnosis and hypnotherapy training is real life training. All of our hypnosis training programs include student observation time in our clinics, one-on-one training and feedback from the trainer, and the opportunity to practice on real clients. Hypnosis certification requires that students demonstrate real life proficiency in the skills being taught.

Personalized Feedback To Help You Succeed

You will receive specific feedback to help you become a confident, successful hypnotist. By experiencing this, you will have the benefit of making your own changes with hypnosis, giving you more insight into how to help your clients.

Learn Hypnosis From Effective Hypnotists

The Burlington Hypnosis Centre is a busy hypnosis clinic that has conducted thousands of hypnosis sessions since 2006. The Master Hypnotist Society is an elite group of hypnotists with successful hypnosis practices. Our training is informed by our cumulative experience working with tens of thousands of clients over a period of 35 years. You will have the benefit of drawing on this experience to accelerate your learning and success.

Customized Training For All Skill Levels

Training is customized to suit each individual student’s needs, and we welcome people who are brand new to the field and want to become a hypnotist or hypnotherapist, seasoned professionals, and everything in between. We take into consideration your prior training, skill level, experience, and goals and design a training program that challenges you to expand your skills and build your success.

Grounded Non-Proprietary Curriculum

The Master Hypnotist Society training material is non-proprietary and is grounded in the solid foundation of tried and true principals and practices that have stood the test of time.
