Accreditation, regulations, and licensing:

Governmental regulations overseeing hypnosis practice vary by country and even within the USA, differing from state to state. It's your responsibility to ensure compliance with local business regulations. In the USA, hypnotism currently operates as a self-regulated profession without mandatory licensing.

In terms of accreditation, the International Hypnosis School, similar to others in this field, isn't accredited by governmental bodies. Hypnosis, being self-regulated, doesn't necessitate formal diplomas or accreditations. Accreditation from Hypnosis Associations doesn't hold any weight. Similarly, educational associations' accreditation lacks relevance in hypnosis knowledge.

Ultimately, it boils down to financial considerations. Pursuing accreditation incurs significant costs, which eventually get transferred to you. You might end up paying a premium for something that holds no value.

My aim is to impart authentic knowledge derived from genuine experiences. No superfluous content—just practical, valuable insights enabling you to thrive as a professional hypnotist and establish a successful business by genuinely assisting people in the real world.

Smoking Cessation is a real bread-and-butter of a hypnotist.

You will have to promote yourself to acquire the first dozen of clients, and then the referrals will start coming in.

Now, more people than ever want to quit smoking due to the falling economy and the continuous raising of tobacco prices.

My clients now say that they just can no longer afford to smoke.

Smoking cessation is usually done in 1 - 4 sessions. Prices range anywhere from $300 to $1800. My current rate (2024) for smoking cessation is $1200 (in Maryland, USA).

I want to see clients online but I am worried that it may not be as effective.

Virtual hypnosis is just as effective as in person. It is a voice-based modality. As long as your client can hear and understand you well, hypnosis will work. As Jim Kellner, a professional hypnotist, and comedian, said in one of our interviews, "The hardest part of working online is convincing clients that it works."

In my courses, I emphasize the skills needed for conducting virtual appointments successfully. As the world changes, we have to adapt and learn to work with the resources that are available to us. Hypnotists that are used to working full-time in person in the office, have a difficult time switching to virtual hypnosis. Old habits die hard even for hypnotists. It is best, to learn to work with clients both, online and in-person, from the very beginning. By practicing both, you will not experience any difficulties transitioning from online to the office and back. This way, you will adapt your business easily to the global and your personal life changes.
