Foundation Hypnosis Certificate Online

Information on hypnosis training suitable for working professionally using hypnotic suggestions.  The skills are suitable for entry to the Past Life Regression Academy classroom based Past Life, Regression Therapy and Between Lives Spiritual Regression training.

The Past Life Regression Academy has trained over 500 students around the world since 2002 with classroom based training. It has a high success rate of students going on to become professional therapists using hypnosis in their practice. This is because the course has been designed to cater for the different ways people learn, is practical based to quickly build skills and confidence, and covers personalising hypnosis scripts to get therapeutic results.

This is an online version in the English language and covers the same content as the Academy classroom hypnosis training and maintains the same standard. The style of training is based on a short talk, a demonstration, practicing what you see and getting feedback on your work. It uses videos and workshop notes. Students send assignments, audio recordings of hypnosis work and case study information to a supervisor for feedback.

The Most Important Aspect of Training

The most important aspect of training is integrating knowledge into skills and having the confidence to work professionally with clients. For hypnosis this comes from having an experienced hypnosis supervisor give you inspiration, answer questions, review your work at all the stages of training and advise you as you work with client case studies until you are qualified. It may be more expensive but you deserve the best possible training to reach your full potential as a therapist.   


Ideally students will be qualified in psychotherapy, counselling, psychiatry, energy healing, body work or an approved complimentary therapy. Applicants without formal qualifications must be able to demonstrate interest, enthusiasm and life experience appropriate to the helping professions and show aptitude and potential for studying.
