Clinical Hypnotherapy is…

  • Root Cause Therapy
  • Trauma Informed Therapy
  • Belief Repatterning Therapy
  • Neuro Rewiring Therapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a form of neuro-psychotherapy with roots in existing evidence-based therapies.

Extensively trained Clinical Hypnotherapists utilize the brain’s own ability to rewire, heal and process trauma by incorporating a “hypnotic trance” which, simply put, bypasses the conscious mind and existing beliefs which inhibit healing and change going right to the source of all our beliefs and behaviours, the subconscious mind.

Clinical Hypnotherapy incorporates a combination of protocols and techniques used in many other traditional psychotherapies but works directly with the subconscious mind (the source) to reprogram the way in which traumatic memories and images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions. Working in this beautiful state of the deepest relaxation doesn’t just facilitate healing but does so without retraumatizing the client.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is safe, evidence based and nothing like what is sensationalized in movies or demonstrated in stage shows.

In short, a hypnotherapist has basic training and is generally qualified to do weight loss, smoking cessation, stress relief, habit breaking etc. While a Clinical Hypnotherapist has extensive training in helping clients discover the root cause of their presenting issues and achieve permanent results. It should be noted that ARCH Canada only regulates and accredits Clinical Hypnotherapy designations.

ARCH Canada is recognized by the therapeutic and medical professional industry. In order to have a consistently full-time practice, referrals from those industries are vital. As well, ARCH Canada is actively working to increase and maintain the standards of our industry and build ongoing relationships with medical professional associations and insurance providers.

An important aspect of Clinical Hypnotherapy is connecting with our clients and developing the ability to read the subtle subconscious, visual and intuitive cues that can only be taught in person. In person training also enhances the development of relationships of community amongst your peers.

Helping your clients heal and achieve permanent changes cannot be taught strictly online or in a condensed program. Throughout the 11 months of training a supervised practicum of 100 hours is required to assist with any and all questions that may arise. Online and condensed training programs hinder the reputation and recognition of Clinical Hypnotherapy rather than enhance it.

It is possible to upgrade your education to meet the standards required for registration with ARCH Canada. Read about our Upgrade Program
