Testimonials from Students

"This was absolutely amazing! It is good to have these additional tools to help reduce stress and anxiety"
Marcus M.
"Each time I watch presentations about Hypnosis, I learn something new. What was new for me today, was the notion that de-personalizing stress can be helpful. I have more work to do in this practice but the principle is meaningful."
Anthony T.
"The shift in perspective of managing stress and anxiety, and ways to be more intentional and present. Self-hypnosis is different for all (myself included), so it is a practice I would have to engage in more consistently; but the tools provided with Lisa's knowledge is incredibly valuable and insightful."
Sasha L.
"The real time practice was very helpful to demonstrate the skills."

Hypnosis Certification FAQ

Your questions about hypnotism, hypnosis certification, and how to become a professional hypnotist, answered by Lisa Shook, Certified 5-PATH® Hypnotist and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® Teacher, International Speaker and Business Coach to Extraordinary Entrepreneurs. RMT, and lifelong learner.

On a typical day in the life of a hypnotist, the hypnotist will see between 3-6 clients. These clients are struggling with common, everyday issues like wanting to lose weight, stop smoking, sleep better, reduce anxiety, or reduce the sensation of pain. 


To begin working with a client, a Hypnotist will conduct a consultation to discover what the goals of the client are and what the client has tried previously to address any given issue. The Hypnotist will come up with a plan to help the client achieve their desired results, followed by hypnosis sessions with the client.


A Hypnotist will typically schedule 4-6 sessions with a client to make sure the client is 100% successful not only with the change they want to make but also integrating the change into their life so it is sustainable. 


A hypnotherapist helps clients to gain awareness of any limiting beliefs and emotions that are keeping the client from being successful and eliminate them. A hypnotherapist also helps a client reprogram responses to situations and gain understanding of how to satisfy emotions with healthy responses.

Here at Kinetic Healing Connection and The Stressless Prosperity Institute, we use the terms interchangeably because it’s common that both terms are used to mean the same thing. In the state of Washington you can be licensed as a Hypnotherapist, other states have little or no regulation and in other states (including Texas and New York) “therapist” is a protected word, so many hypnotherapists must only refer to themselves as hypnotists. Some people think of “hypnotist” as a stage hypnotist, and some people consider working on issues with a professional as “hypnotherapy”.

Most states in the U.S. have little to no direct regulation over the practice of hypnotherapy, but laws vary from state-to-state. For example, Colorado, Connecticut, and Washington require mandatory licensure or registration. 


For more details on regulations for becoming a hypnotherapist in your state, review the state laws on the Hypnotherapists Union website:

A certified hypnotherapist is a person who has a certification from a professional hypnosis organization that offers certification - for example, the National Guild of Hypnotists.

Some schools offer to train you in 48 hours. It’s not possible to learn what you need to understand to be a good hypnotist in that amount of time. Our training at Kinetic Healing Connection lasts 2 weeks. You will have the foundation to go out and become a great hypnotherapist will all the tools you need to build a successful business as a Hypnotist.

My advice is to get good training as a foundation, start seeing clients, and then continue learning from them. Learning from working with clients is the best training.

Becoming Certified in Hypnosis is a benefit to the industry and shows your commitment to your profession. This will assist in gaining trust with clients. You are taking a big step towards helping someone in one of the most personal ways you can imagine. The satisfaction of your clients thanking you and knowing you have helped someone in a positive, life changing way is AMAZING. There are no words to describe the ways it can open your heart to a new purpose in life. You will be rewarded financially as you can be creative in your own ways in the types of issues you decide you want to work with. There are no limits to what type of Hypnosis business you can create! 

To become a successful hypnotherapist requires a passion for helping people. Being a hypnotherapist is not easy work. We are helping people with some of the hardest challenges of life. Success requires a solid personal foundation, integrity, and the biggest of all, Compassion. You will need to be dedicated to your practice.

Yes, hypnotists can make good money. Being a Hypnotist means they are small business owners - so it depends on how much they want to work. Some hypnotists want to work 2 or 3 days a week and have a relaxed lifestyle and great income. Others want to work full time, and make a six- figure income. Hypnotists can create a strictly remote/online business helping clients across the world, or build a Hypnosis business from a home office. Some Hypnotist find an office location and enjoy working their own schedule. A hypnotist can earn anywhere between $100-$500 or more per session. Many hypnotists earn a six-figure income within their first few years of practice.
