Essential Information

Hypnosis certification programs are typically geared toward practicing therapists and medical professionals, including counselors, psychiatrists, doctors, and nurses. By completing curricula, students learn to safely perform hypnotic induction, the process by which a patient enters hypnosis. They also learn to manipulate their subjects' behavior through hypnotic suggestion.

Courses and programs are available online.


Certification Programs in Hypnosis

Certifications in hypnosis are available from several organizations. Requirements for certification vary, but often include a certain number of training hours, supervised practice in hypnosis and passing exams. Coursework in a hypnosis certificate program is largely theoretical, although live demonstrations are typical. In many cases, students undergo hypnosis themselves to better understand its effects. Courses common to hypnosis certificate programs include the following:

  • Hypnotic induction
  • Suggestion and the unconscious
  • Ethics
  • Behavior and addiction

Popular Career Options

Certificates in hypnosis themselves don't lead to a career; however, many careers might incorporate hypnosis into their practice. Some examples include the following:

  • Alternative health practitioner
  • Psychologist
  • Hypnotherapist
  • Complementary medicine practitioner

Certification programs in hypnosis are offered through other disciplines related to alternative health, medicine or therapy but also as separate programs.
