With internationally renowned Master Trainers, 

Joseph & Melissa Clough.

Through our accredited trainings at the California School of NLP & Hypnosis, you'll learn how to become an expert in communication with yours and others' unconscious minds, how to speak the language of your unconscious mind through hypnotic queues to change limiting beliefs at the deepest level possible, discover techniques to coach others to be the best version of themselves, and so much more. 

If you're here, chances are you:

  • Are curious about the transformative effects of therapeutic hypnosis.

  • Have experienced hypnosis via audio or with a practitioner and want to learn more. 

  • Would like to utilize self-hypnosis to for positive change or to add these techniques to your toolbox to help others.

If you've wanted to change an unwanted behavior, feeling, or belief; and you know what you "should" do, but can't seem to do it on your own, then chances are those negative behaviors are being run at an unconscious level. The best way to shift the unconscious/subconscious patterns is to address them through hypnosis for lasting change.

Learn How to:

  • Establish unconscious communication to let go of unwanted behaviors.

  • Utilize instant & rapid inductions.

  • Master your own emotions to take charge of your own mind, and learn how to help others do the same.

  • Gain instant confidence and motivation in a wide variety of situations.

  • Transform your health, relationships, & career.

  • Access your unconscious learning ability at will.

  • Use hypnotic language patterns for positive transformation.

  • Easily change unwanted behaviours in yourself and others.

  • Help others and yourself develop positive core beliefs to achieve your goals.

  • Remove unnecessary fears and phobias and issues such as anxiety and low self- esteem.

  • Utilize these methods for healing with your clients and loved ones.

Our Hypnosis courses are more than just a learning experience- they're the beginning of a life journey.

Why is Hypnosis So Beneficial?

Hypnosis is simply a relaxed state of awareness, where we can get our conscious minds out of the way to tap into our highest inner resources and be our best selves. 


Therapeutic hypnosis was created by psychiatrist, Dr. Milton Erickson, the "father of hypnosis," who believed that when individuals are in a relaxed state, they can begin to find their own inner-resources, and discover the answers to their problems.


According to WebMD, "Hypnosis -- or hypnotherapy -- uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. The person's attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention -- with the help of a trained therapist -- on specific thoughts or tasks."

By discovering learnings in a deeply relaxed state, we are able to cultivate more positive perceptions about ourselves and our experiences, thus shifting unwanted behaviors, beliefs, sensations, and memories into a powerfully liberated state of mind.

When you attend the Learn Hypnosis in a Weekend course, you'll receive a level 1 Introductory to Hypnosis Certificate of Completion (approximately 18 hours of study and practice), in which you will be able to incorporate your learnings with your clients in your current healing practice, your loved ones, or utilize for your own self-improvement.
