Can Anyone Learn to Be a Hypnotist?

by | Sep 12, 2012 | Awareness

This week I have been interviewing candidates for my upcoming hypnotist training class in October. One of the questions I was asked was, “Can anyone be a hypnotist?” I had to do some serious thinking on that question.

I am going to quantify the answer to that question by saying anyone with reasonable intelligence can learn to be a hypnotist. Let me put this in another framework for you. I am an artist and I can teach you how to draw by teaching you the mechanics of line and perspective. The quality and impression of the drawing will depend on how much you can connect with you inner vision and sight for expression of that drawing.

There is a difference between a child’s drawing and Leonardo de Vinci based on their life’s experiences. The same is true with learning to be a hypnotist. You can be taught how to do hypnosis inductions, how to gain rapport, how to do a suggestibility test and you can be a hypnotist, but are you content with just being an average hypnotist?

I like to think of being a hypnotist as being on an enlightened journey in which you should be challenged personally, intellectually, and intuitively. Our focus with training to be a consulting hypnotist is to both give the mechanics of being an ethical & practical hypnotist as well as being able to connect with your personal intuition and wisdom. Anyone can be a hypnotist, being a great hypnotist requires personal growth and deep change within you.
