“the best hypnotherapists are students who have had extensive life-experience and who have an abiding need to be of service to others.”
Heartsong Hypnotherapy Training Center offers a program of training in clinical hypnotherapy which qualifies the student to be tested for membership in American Council of Hypnotist Examiners. Heartsong Hypnotherapy Training is the only approved school in the Southwest by the prestigious American Council of Hypnotist Examiners (ACHE).
In order to be accepted for this training, the potential student must first become a member of ACHE. The cost of this membership is minimal and will be applied to the two year certification at the completion of the first 300 hours at Heartsong.
Each state has its own rules and guidelines for the practice of Hypnotherapy. It is important that the potential student do his own research on this matter in the state where he expects to practice. Texas does not provide a licensing, registration or any other accreditation for the practice of hypnotherapy. Because hypnosis does not place the client in a vulnerable situation (the client is always awake and completely aware of the voice and behavior of the hypnotist) and the hypnotist cannot make the client do anything that is against his nature or ethics, this state does not see the need for regulation. And although there is no scientific evidence that a “state” of hypnosis actually exists, the U.S. Department of Labor list of legal job titles does include HYPNOTHERAPIST as a legal job title.
HEARTSONG offers the most extensive training anywhere with its 500 hour course. In this training the student is introduced to, through lectures and films, all aspects of hypnotherapy. The classroom work is experiential; the students begin working on each other the second day of class. The classes are usually held over a period of three months, each session being ten days, nine to six and some evenings. Upon the completion of the 300 hours, the student is then allowed to take the written test for membership in the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners. Then there is an additional assignment of approximately 200 hours of home study including book reports, journaling, a speech on hypnosis, a self-hypnosis tape, and the Heartsong Completion Test, which is a requirement for Certification of Completion from Heartsong. During the last segment of training, there will be three days of clinicals with outside clients, in addition to continuing to work with fellow students.
Qualifications for this training do not include formal education. Bette believes the best hypnotherapists are students who have had extensive life-experience and who have an abiding need to be of service to others. She has had students as young as twenty and as old as 79. The twenty year old brought her infant daughter to class with her each day.
If you need formality and order in your training, then Heartsong is not for you. But.. if you can think freely, be spontaneously creative, laugh easily and a lot, be willing to develop your intuition, step outside your ego, and work really, really hard to acquire new and amazing skills, this is where you will find your bliss.
Call for an interview; you won’t be sorry.

When the first 300 hours is completed, your test for membership in the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners completed, the test will be mailed to their offices in Glendale, California, along with your check for $l75.00 for a two-year membership. Your estimated waiting time for receipt of certification is approximately six weeks. This test will be made available to you the first part of the last session. ACHE is a self-governing body of hypnotherapists from all over the world. It is politically active and supportive of hypnotherapy remaining a legal job title in every state. Bette proctors this timed test.
The goal at Heartsong is not just to teach you how to do hypnosis, but to do such an excellent intake interview that you will know exactly how to work with your client when that interview is completed. The rapport which takes place during that interview is what makes the hypnosis session successful. You will be taught everything that is listed for the course and you will not be disappointed in the amount of material covered by the end of this Certification. Tuition for this certification course is $4,000. This covers supplies, but not the cost of books.
