What We Do

The Hypnotism Training Institute of Alberta utilizes proven and effective methods to teach and train students to become confident, qualified, and competent hypnotists and hypnotherapists.
With over 430 hours of class time, The Hypnotism Training Institute of Alberta is recognized as one of the most comprehensive and accomplished hypnosis training facilities in the world offering training and certification in Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapy, Stage Hypnosis, and Hypnosis Assisted Birthing.

​Class time includes instruction, demonstration, and practice. This allows learning as well as integration and development of technique and application within a safe and supervised setting. Each student has the opportunity to see as well as experience hypnosis and hypnotherapy as an observer and as a participant. Many of the demonstrations are recorded and a DVD is then included as part of the classroom materials for each student, providing a unique and valuable resource specific to those in attendance.
Since 1984 students and graduates have been developing an ever-growing network of colleagues and friends that continue to support each other and the school, and to advance the understanding, applications, and benefits of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.

Why Choose Us?

As you have searched the web, you most likely found that several Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy schools offer courses by the same names and even the same numbers.

What is the difference?  Although they advertise for the same program, each University has their own requirements, curriculum and reputation regarding the quality of the degree a student can obtain upon completion of the program.

The same goes for training in Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.  Each school is independent and establishes its own prerequisites.  Since you are entering an unregulated field of study, examine the integrity of training the school offers.  The professional designations are usually similar, but what kind of training will you receive?

Hypnotists and Hypnotherapists are people skills best learned in a classroom setting. In this field, we connect with real people, their sorrow, their fears, their hopes, their visions, their joy, and their wants.  At the completion of the training, many of our students have acknowledged the incredible plus-value of a face-to-face classroom setting.

At the Hypnotism Training Institute of Alberta, we begin by learning how hypnosis works, and progress to using hypnosis as a therapeutic tool, helping a client to regress from effect back to cause, to resolve whatever has to be resolved.  Read more about our Hypnosis courses.
