What’s the best way to find the hypnotist that will help you to succeed? There are two vital things to determine before moving forward with starting hypnosis. First, make sure your hypnotist is certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest organization of hypnotists in the world. The non-profit Guild has stringent guidelines to certify hypnotists, with the most important being a large number of training hours taught by certified trainers. The NGH also requires continuing education every year to ensure its members remain up to date in theory and techniques. Unfortunately, there are some “schools” that will issue certificates after just a day or two’s training. Using a NGH certified hypnotist ensures that you are dealing with a highly trained professional. Second, make sure to talk with the hypnotist first to make sure that you feel comfortable with them. Ask them to discuss their strategies and successes to make sure that it’s a good fit, both personally and professionally. You don’t need to be best friends but you need to trust and rely on your hypnotist. Don’t hesitate to ask questions. When you have a NGH certified hypnotist that you feel comfortable with, your success is assured.
