Anyone can become a hypnotherapist, however, to work on medical conditions you need to get a referral from the appropriate licensed practitioner. This is where we find the distinction between clinical and non-clinical hypnosis. Anyone can use hypnosis for non-clinical issues, such as raising self-esteem, finding inner peace, sleeping better at night, stopping unwanted behaviors, and hundreds of other such topics. Clinical hypnosis involves any diagnosed medical, dental, or mental health condition. In those cases, our graduates are trained to work with licensed professionals to get referrals to keep operating within the parameters of the law and to keep our clients safe.
