Professional Hypnosis Certification – Learn to be a Hypnotist

While cognitive therapies help clients manage problems, the brain responds differently in relaxation than in waking state. Relaxation, guided imagery, or hypnotic processes operate at a different level neurologically to help clients experience life differently at an automatic, visceral level. These processes are empirically based, solution-focused, fast and effective.

Dr. Fredric Mau is offering his Professional Hypnosis Certification Course over five weekends beginning January 2023 (exact dates to be announced). This course provides up to 50 CEs (including 4 ethics CEs) for professional and school counselors and non-contact hours for social workers, as well as certification as a hypnotherapist or consulting hypnotist by the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH). Associates, students, and interns are welcome.

Registration is $300 and is applied to the tuition for the course. You can register by contacting Dr. Mau at Space is limited.

This year he presented the keynote address at the Australian Hypnotherapists Association’s 70th Anniversary World Conference in Brisbane, and he was recognized as Outstanding Counselor in our state by the South Carolina Counseling Association.

Practical Training: The focus of the course is on developing the skills of a professional clinical hypnotist. While a substantial amount of information is presented, this skill development, both in inducing hypnosis and in managing suggestions, is emphasized. The course also addresses emotional communication, empathy and persuasive skills. Many self- help processes use hypnotic principles. You will understand and learn to use relaxation techniques, therapeutic guided imagery and much more. Dr. Mau demonstrates techniques and discusses actual client cases. Participants practice the skills in class.
