Hypnosis: How Getting a Certificate Transformed My Life


In the late 1960’s, I was a high school English teacher. After that in the early ’70’s, I had a major shift in my life that began with yoga and meditation. When the shift in my life took place, I began teaching my own classes.  I taught visualization, healing, yoga, meditation, various workshops, and I did one-on-one transformational sessions with people. I called this “inner healing.” Not until 1987 did I find out that the work I did was also called “hypnotherapy.”

One day, I met a woman, and she told me that she’d become certified as a hypnotherapist. I said to her, “What did you learn there?” She told me what she’d learned, and I said, “That’s what I do!” And I now knew I could take this work for which I had deep passion, and it could also be my career. So I became a certified hypnotherapist in 1987, and I began my work. I started out giving free hypnosis demonstrations every Friday night in Berkeley. Sometimes one person would come – and sometimes ten. I’d tell them what I did and show them, and I’d sell some tapes, and it began to grow from there.
I added to my inner healing work, helping people to transform their habits and accomplish what they wanted to do in their lives. I assisted them to reach states of higher consciousness and become the people they’d dreamed about becoming.

After this, my work began to grow exponentially. Having the certificate gave me a platform from which to launch the work I loved. First I taught in another hypnotherapy school, and I gave many classes and workshops.
I came to an understanding of inner healing as a process of experiencing, releasing and transforming the difficulties of life. One day, a woman I know said to me, “Why don’t you start a school?” Now, this seemed perfectly logical to me, as I’d been a teacher all my adult life, so I started a school. The school began to grow too.  We’ve had several locations, and we’re now right across from the beautiful Lake Merritt in Oakland with a panoramic view of the lake.

I then began to branch out over the Internet with telecourses, teleseminars, online articles and more. I saw the infinite multiple streams of income that hypnosis can yield. I wrote a number of books and continue to do so, and I continue to see how assisting people to transform their lives can take many forms. Eventually I was to win six awards from the National Guild of Hypnotists, and my work grew even more.

This is what we teach people in our school: how to use specific powerful tools to assist others to overcome their challenges, live their life purposes, and transform their lives. We have a special method called “The Transformational Healing Method” that is very easy to learn and can be applied to everyone and everything. We give you a step-by-step blueprint the helps your clients experience, release, and transform anything in their lives that is in the way of their greatness. We give our students knowledge about how to create their practices. Over 5 of our graduates have started their own schools, and many have created successful practices in the areas that interest them. We show them how they, too, can create multiple streams of income from hypnosis, assist them to become true professionals, and guide them toward success in their work.
Getting my certificate made all the difference.
