Am I a good fit for your Six-Day Training Program?

The Six-Day Training is for professional therapists, counselors, medical professionals, educators and others who feel called to learn how to use hypnotherapy to better treat and heal their clients.

Traditionally, our program attracts professional therapists who:

  2. Are looking to expand the methods they have in their treatment toolkit.
  3. Are looking to open a private practice or access new markets for clients.
  4. Believe that improved access to the subconscious will help them reach new client breakthroughs.
  5. Need to complete continuing education hours in order to maintain licensure.

If any of the above describe you, then you are likely a great fit for our program.

Why should I do hypnotherapy training?
Why should I complete it at The Wellness Institute?

Using hypnotherapy, therapists can spend less time talking with their clients, and more time understanding their clients and helping them heal. It goes without saying: getting trained in hypnotherapy is an incredible experience. Thousands of graduates of The Wellness Institute have learned how powerful hypnotherapy can be as a tool in their toolkit, and The Wellness Institute is one of the foremost institutes for hypnotherapy training, and our programs are recognized by licensing boards in all 50 states.

Why hypnotherapy training?

Why Wellness Institute?

Start, or grow, a private practice

Hypnotherapy is incredibly effective, but also underutilized. This means you can quickly become THE expert in your area, attracting clients and gaining referrals.

Access the subconscious

Hypnotherapy works by accessing the subconscious mind, taking the client to the source of their issues by attaining valuable information that can help promote relaxation, comfort, and healing.

Treat, don’t talk

Stop simply talking to people, peeling away layers one hour at a time. Hypnotherapy gives you the gift of treating poeple on their deeper sub-conscious level, with often immediate behavioral changes.

We support you, forever

In a lot of hypnotherapy programs, you take your classes and call it a day. Not here. The Wellness Institute has continuing education, supervision groups, and a lot of free resources. Our community of graduates is a constant source of joy for us, and we all support each other in any way we can.

It’s a whole lot of fun

We’re not kidding. Most continuing education is stodgy and boring. In our training, you will receive hands-on instruction, and will likely make lifelong friends with your classmates. Our therapists say they leanred so deeply and laughted so much at the same time!

What will I learn on each day of the training program?

This is a six-day program with 30% lecture and 70% hands-on experience. Each day has a specific set of topics that will allow you to quickly learn hypnotherapy and start applying it in your client sessions. 
(To see the full, detailed syllabus, click here.)

Day 1:

You will learn the basics about subconscious minds, a step-by-step model for inducing the trance state, how to recognize trance depth, and how to utilize hypnotic suggestion.

Day 2:

You will learn the Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy model with live demonstration sessions of theory in action.

Day 3:

Things heat up on this day. You will form groups of three and start getting hands-on experience using hypnotherapy.

Day 4:

On this day, you will really hone in on how hypnotherapy helps treat physical issues, such as stress-related disorders (headaches, ulcers, etc.), weight, smoking, and more. You will also learn how to develop a private practice and grow a client base.

Day 5:

On day five, you will be given tools using Heart-Centered hypnotherapy to treat common mental issues, such as addiction, depression, trauma, phobias, anxiety, sexual/physical abuse, and more.

Day 6:

You will end the training where life begins: in the womb. You will learn how hypnotherapy helps with pregnancy and birth issues, and how many adult issues originate in the womb. You will also learn the next steps for getting certified and continuing your education.

What have other graduates thought about the program?

With thousands of graduates, from America to Istanbul, we have a vast community of alumni. Many of these have moved on to advanced levels, and even on to teaching here at the Institute.

Key quotes from the video:

“I’m so glad I made this decision, I realized The Wellness Institute is more than just a place where you learn, it’s a place where you grow and make friends and you become a better person, a better therapist and a better, just everything, that you want out of life.

It helps you grow in every way.”

Melody Litton

"I was in private practice for 10 years and felt stagnant and wanted a little shot of adrenaline, to do something unique, something that was different that everyone else. So I signed up for the Six-Day Program, and I loved it.

It’s made me a better wife, a better mom, a better employer, a better daughter, a better sister. It has helped me in every area of my life."

Lois Anne Montecalvo, LMSW

"I think the difference between training here and training elsewhere is, first of all, the comprehensive training. Also, the sense of community in that the people you see here are generally the people you stay with. So there’s a continuity of the work. They see you from the very beginning. They see you through to the very end."

Michael Malone, LPC and Wellness Instructor

Other stories and quotes from students:

"It would not be an exaggeration to say that Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy has transformed my life. What began years ago simply as an effort to get CEUs for hypnotherapy has evolved into a profound professional and personal journey."

David Fawcett, MSW, Ph.D

"It has been—by far—the best investment in my personal and clinical training. I would highly recommend the training and programs for transformation, personally and professionally! The Wellness Institute is a transformative, healthy, loving community!"

Linda Tremblay, MA, LCMHC, MLADC

"As a clinician in practice for over 25 years, hypnotherapy has revitalized my private practice and my enthusiasm for my work. I am able to help people with deep-seated anxiety more fully, more quickly and within a framework that neither demands nor excludes medications."

Marty Laska, LPCC, LICDC, ACHT

"The reputation of my group practice spreads far and many professionals in my community send clients to us when they are blocked in what else to do to help. We have grown from a one room, one therapist practice, to a 4,000 square-foot group location with at least five clinicians and many more asking to join."

Melissa Ratliff, LCSW

"Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy has advanced my career, first by helping me heal, then by giving me a tool to really get to the root of the real issues in my clients' lives. Completion of hypnotherapy training put me in a network with a lot of like-minded people who have been a resource to more personal growth."

James Musgrave, DMIN, LPC, LADC, ACHT

"I bless the day that Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy has come into my life. It has changed me as a person and as a therapist with my clients.

I have watched and participated in several of my clients becoming so much more in harmony with their lives. It is a pleasure to witness such change."

Teri Tolan, LMHC, LMP, RN
