Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Associations in General
There are many hypnosis and hypnotherapy organizations. Almost all of these were founded by the owners of hypnosis and hypnotherapy schools. Some have annual conferences. Generally, as a graduate of THI, or any school for that matter, you are welcome to attend these conferences. This can be fun to do once you graduate and begin your professional practice. For example, The International Hypnosis Federation, the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners and the National Guild of Hypnotists usually have conferences.
“It has been a privilege to witness and participate in the spiritual growth of my clients. By applying what I learned in THI trainings, I too continue in my own growth.”
