Advancements in Accelerated Hypnotherapy Training
7 Ways this Hypnotherapy Training Is Different from the Others
1) The Academy has the unique distinction of being the only hypnotherapy school providing techniques and protocols to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for their scientific research purposes.
Because of the success of a clinical trial using Hypnotherapy Academy techniques, the NIH in conjunction with the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine have funded a three-year, three million dollar study utilizing the Academy's methodology.
By training here at the Academy, in Albuquerque, you can rest assured that you are receiving instruction in techniques that are scientifically verified to be effective. (See results from clinical trial on the page about the NIH.)
2) Hypnotherapy requires the skillful use of healing semantics.
You learn the language of healing by attending our comprehensive and in-depth hypnotherapy education.
The most efficient way to learn a new language is immersion.
For this reason we provide up to 500 hours on-site of hypnotherapy training in our accelerated course format.
Our two and a half decades of teaching experience have shown us that graduates from the accelerated format have greater skills proficiency.
3) You receive one-on-one support from our professional coaching staff during clinical skills development periods.
This experiential format of hypnotherapy training is designed to provide you with ample time to develop confidence with the techniques.
4) State of the art training materials, including our 1000 page training manual which was designed using cutting edge Information Mapping methodology. This means you will learn the technical information with less effort.
It is packed with all the step-by-step protocols, and word-for-word procedures to address clients' issues.
5) We are celebrating our 25th year as a state recognized hypnotherapy training. (Originally named Southwest College of Hypnosis). In those two and a half decades the curriculum has been finely tuned to provide you with everything you need to know to start your hypnotherapy practice.
We now have graduates who have traveled from 26 countries and 49 of the 50 states in the US to study with our lead instructor, Tim Simmerman Sierra.
6) Because we teach from the experiential model, you get to experience all the healing and transformational methods first hand.
7) Our building is an architecturally designed educational facility for optimum learning, and includes multiple hypnotherapy session rooms for "real-life" practice with your classmates.

Hypnotherapy Goes Mainstream
It seems like every day a new study proving the efficacy of hypnotherapy appears in the media. Hospitals, Medical Clinics and Urgent Care facilities and are bringing medical hypnosis to their patients. Both Masters and Doctoral level counselors, psychologists and Social Workers and learning hypnosis to assist their clients. Lay people getting off the conventional corporate career track are becoming hypnotherapists because they want to make a difference in the world. Hypnotherapy has come a long way in the last thirty years.
The demand for competent clinical hypnotherapists who have a broad base of knowledge and effective practical skills is growing by the day. Just last week a local physician called the school to arrange medical hypnosis sessions for a patient who has non-organic chronic headaches.
To assist taking hypnotherapy into this new era of acceptance by the mainstream, hypnotherapy schools must increase their contact hours with students, improve the quality of their curriculum and update their teaching methods.
Sure, in the 1980's and 90's a course with 150 or 200 hours of hypnotism training and the outdated "just watch me and learn" style seemed like enough, but in the 21st century with billions of dollars being spent annually on complementary therapies and alternative medicine by intelligent, well-informed-consumers, a hypnotherapist lacking in-depth training just won't cut it.
What's even worse are the hypnotism diploma mills that claim that a distance learning format or correspondence course prepares a person as a professional in the people-helping field.
The Hypnotherapist most likely to meet the demands of this evolving climate is the one with the best education. Hypnotherapists skilled in advanced techniques simply help people reach goals quicker, solve problems with more ease and achieve greater degrees of personal growth by empowering them with self-help methodology.
This saves the consumer money, time and effort while on their path to wellbeing.
Because we are committed to your future success as a hypnotherapist and hypnotherapy being one of the primary tools for helping people heal emotional and physical issues, we designed our hypnotherapy training course to present you with ample theoretical background, an actual training manual (1000+ pages) developed by master's level educational designers, live demonstration of the hypnotherapy methods, live video case histories of extraordinary sessions, hands-on practice with individual performance based coaching, dynamic classroom lectures and feedback sessions.
The Hypnotherapy Academy of America focuses on in-depth instruction in the most effective hypnotherapy methods. This is why we are rapidly becoming the most sought after professional hypnotherapy certification program in the world.
Most other schools provide a very limited training. Students may receive only a few hypnosis induction methods and therapeutic techniques. For example, only suggestion therapy and guided imagery and a handful of pre-structured scripts to follow. If you have been searching the web you've probably run across many so-called "hypnosis schools" with impressive sounding names, that are only three to six days in length, or only on-line or only train by correspondence.
Since there is no federal regulation of hypnotherapy, we are left to self-regulation and "buyer beware."
Experts agree that hypnosis is simply a natural, altered state of mind where communication with the subconscious mind is facilitated. Hypnotherapy is the application of universally accepted self-discovery techniques and self-empowerment methods (during an altered stated of mind) that free you of fear-based programming and assumed limitations. This provides for an ongoing experience of your natural state of health, joy, abundance and love.
Tim Simmerman Sierra's training program at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America, is considered an "advanced level course" from beginning to end.
Yet, previous training in hypnotherapy or college credits is NOT required for attendance.
Upon graduation you will be able to immediately start helping people solve problems, resolve conflicts and reach goals as one of the most highly trained practitioners in the entire field of hypnotherapy.
The Academy's professional preparation program offers you up to 500 hours of training in what you need to know to succeed in hypnotherapy.
At the Academy you learn the most important specialty applications. For example, will receive instruction in smoking cessation, weight loss, ending anxiety and stress relief and habit control. While hypnotherapy is never intended to replace medical or psychiatric treatment, hypnotherapy has proven to be an important complementary therapy. You will learn protocols for accelerated healing, strategies for reducing acute and chronic pain, surgery preparation, as well as hypnotherapy for dentistry and childbirth.
And that's not all. Once you have the tools of transformation, we will also provide you with effective marketing, promotion and practice building strategies. We want to put you on the track to quickly recuperating your tuition investment and creating a life-long pattern of increasing prosperity by making a difference in the world.
By completing Hypnotherapy Training Modules 1, 2 & 3, (that's 300 hours of training) and successfully passing the International Board of Hypnotherapy certification exam, you earn the professional title of "Hypnotherapist."

Here You Learn the Medical Support Hypnosis Methods Hospitals Want
By completing through weeks 7 and 8, (400 hours of hypnotherapy training) you will receive specialized training in medical support hypnotherapy.
While all of our graduates use these methods in their private practice, some are working in hospitals. One such practitioner recently reported the following:Become a Certified Hypnotherapist
"Recently, I was called to the hospital, to work on an inpatient basis, with a pregnant woman, who was experiencing extreme nausea/morning sickness to the point of dry heaves (hyperemesis gravidarum).
"Her physician had prescribed every anti-nausea and additional pain killing drug available, to no avail. The patient's physician is a renowned surgeon, who was somewhat skeptical about medical hypnosis.
"Using one of Tim Simmerman Sierra's pain control methods, I was able to assist the patient to ameliorate her pain significantly. (On a scale of 0 to 10, 10 being worst possible�she reported going from a 10 down to a 2 in severity).
"When the patient came out of hypnosis, she said she was 'surprised how well she felt.'
"I learned later that the skeptical surgeon had reported, 'hypnosis worked far more effectively than any drug she had prescribed, to provide reliable pain relief for her patient.'
"We're changing even the 'old school' doctors' thinking!"

The World's Most Advanced Teaching Methods
Because everyone learns differently, we utilize lecture, classroom discussions and feedback sessions, live demonstrations and multimedia educational systems.
Live demonstrations of hypnotherapy methods are often filmed for post session analysis.
Students then have an opportunity to deeply study how to process what emerges during therapy while watching a play back.
Films are carefully examined so each step is clearly understood and all questions can be answered without interrupting the flow of the session during live demonstration.
The Wall Street Journal recently predicted that hypnotherapy will
be one of the top career choices for the new millennium. Now you can
become part of this expanding field, helping others -- and yourself
-- as you build a stable, successful professional practice.
The professional certification
course at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America is one of the most
comprehensive and extensive courses available. As part of our course,
you will go through a carefully planned curriculum during which
you will personally experience the techniques we teach.
As a result, the
door to your subconscious will open, helping you to tap into
the endless flow of mind power. You will be able to move to your
next level while you learn how to do this for others.
