Question by Troll2009: What are the ins and outs of a hypnotherapy profession?
I hear good things about the profession such as $ 60,000 a year pay, the possibilites of stage hypnosis which is fun and entertaining, and the spiritual aspect such as exploring past lives and getting rid of spirit attachments.

Realistically, what are the ups and downs of this profession and whats the best training institute for hypnotherapy in the U.S?

Well the ups are very limited. However if you can find an idiot dumb enough to pay you for it, you can make a killing. The down is that since you don’t really have a real profession and no expertiese in anything, you are nothing but a conman and therefor risk goign to jail constantly.

    Some top hypnotherapists, like Jerry Kein, Wendi Friesen, Mark Cunningham, Cal Banyan and others, do very well financially. Their incomes are probably above $ 60,000 a year, although I don’t know for sure. First I will start with the bad news: The majority of therapists’ income is probably much lower than the top “stars.”. There is generally office space to pay for, sometimes insurance as a therapist, constant advertising and competition from others in your profession. Also, the current economic recession has hurt therapists’ income quite a bit.

    Another problem is that clients see therapists on generally a short term basis, maybe 2 to 5 sessions. The people who bring in good money are psychotherapists, who generally have clients come in week after week, sometimes for years. Hypnotherapists’ clientele deal largely with stop smoking and weight loss issues, and clients expect quick results (2 to 5 sessions in general).

    The public in general as well as mental health professionals generally look at hypnosis as a therapy that is “on the fringe”—like it is new age, unproven, or for wacky people. It doesn’t garner the respect that other professions have.

    Again, stage hypnotists at the top of their field can probably do well financially, especially if they have venues like Las Vegas or other casinos.

    Depending on where you practice, hypnotherapists can do pretty well by charging high rates per session. In cities, rates can go from $ 100 an hour to $ 200 an hour. That’s one of the perks. Also, if you are successful with a number of clients, you can get a lot of referrals. This has a snowball effect and your client base will keep growing.

    If you really feel satisfied with genuinely helping people, exploring past lives, getting rid of spirit attachments, etc. then this may be a very good field for you.

    One way to start is to call up therapists in your area and get an idea about how much they charge and try to get a feel for how many clients they are seeing weekly. Many therapist have regular “day jobs” and use hypnois to bring in some extra cash, while other therapists manage to work full time doing therapy.

    Some of the best training institutes is Gerald Kein’s OmniHypnosis center in Florida and Calvin Banyan’s institute in California. A good idea is to call the National Guild of Hypnotists and ask for training programs in your area. A lot of NLP centers have excellent training programs in Ericksonian hypnosis. Dr. Erickson was one of the best and innovative hypnotherapists in the 20th century. His work revolutionized the field of hypnosis. You can just google for Gerald Kein, Calvin Banyan, NGH, etc.

    I have probably emphasized the negative, rather than the positive, aspects of hypnosis in my answer. Your practice will probably start off slow, but if you have a real passion and dedication to hypnotherapy, you will probably find it a very satisfying career. I wish you well.
