Did you know that hypnotherapy training has been around for… literally AGES?
(Seriously! The earliest known references to methods of “suggestion” were found on clay tablets from over 2,000 years ago!)
Hypnosis is an incredible tool that allows you to bypass the conscious mind and speak directly to the subconscious mind, making powerful suggestions that can help you shift your entire reality.
Once you’ve gone through hypnotherapy training and become a certified hypnotherapist, this is SUCH an amazing modality to use to help your clients get amazing results.
In this post, I want to share with you what hypnotherapy really is, how it can be used, and help you decide if hypnotherapy training is right for you.
What is the Subconscious Mind & What Does It Have To Do With Hypnotherapy Training?
Before you can understand how hypnotherapy training really works, you need to know a little more about the subconscious mind.
At any given moment, we are receiving more than 2 million bits of information… and our conscious mind is only processing about 126 bits of it and bringing it into our conscious awareness, which means…
Your subconscious mind is the most powerful supercomputer that you’ll EVER have access to!
It’s not until about the age of 8 that we develop our critical faculty and can start to accept or reject information.
Just think about that for a moment.
From the ages of 0-7 years old, we’re basically a walking subconscious mind!
(This is why as children, we believe in the Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus… because we accept everything we learn from the adults around us.)
Whether we learn these beliefs from teachers, parents, elders, the news, TV, and movies, or anything else we experience, these programs go into our subconscious mind as programming that shapes our entire reality.
As an adult, if you have subconscious programs that aren’t working for you, they’ll continue to run your life.
For example, if you grew up learning it was hard to make money, or that it was difficult to be in relationships or sustain friendships… unless you go into your subconscious and reprogram those beliefs, you’ll continue to live out that reality, whether it benefits you or not.
Hypnosis allows you to relax your conscious mind and speak directly to the subconscious mind. You can easily reprogram beliefs from that place, and hypnotherapy is one of the most effective tools to do so!
Once you’ve gone through hypnotherapy training, you can help clients create a better money mindset, reach their fitness and weight loss goals, or even break habits like smoking.
With hypnosis, we can help our clients make massive changes in a matter of minutes by speaking directly to the subconscious mind!
Demystifying Hypnotherapy Training
Does the thought of being hypnotized scare you?
Do you feel like if you’re under hypnosis, you’ll be out of control?
Maybe you imagine someone being up on a stage, clucking like a chicken?
SO many people have this misconception if they haven’t been hypnotized or been through hypnotherapy training, and it’s just not true!
When you go through hypnosis, you’ll still hear everything your hypnotherapist is saying. You won’t conk out, fall asleep, or feel like a zombie. In fact, you’ll be aware of everything that happens during a hypnosis session.
Many people come to a hypnotherapy session thinking that there is something about being in a trance state which is markedly different from their “normal” state of consciousness.
This is definitely not the case.
A light trance will most often feel no different from relaxation.
In fact, when you’re staring at a screen — a TV, a computer, your phone — the slight strobe effect that it creates can put you into a light trance.
(Another reason why I’m such a proponent of being super aware of what kind of content you’re consuming — because you’re literally hypnotizing yourself!)
Hypnotherapy training will teach you how to use these states to your advantage by programming beliefs that actually support you in your goals!
Since trance is a normal, natural state, clients will likely feel a feeling of familiarity, no matter how deep into the trance they go.
There are all kinds of different ways to induce a trance state, and when you do your hypnotherapy training with YES SUPPLY, we teach the Krasner Method, which involves using a script to create a deep state of hypnosis.
As a hypnotherapist, when you induce a client into a trance, you can let them know that they don’t have to expect to “feel” hypnotized and that they will be in charge the entire time.
During hypnosis, we only accept the suggestions that are given that consistent with our own internal values and beliefs.
In hypnotherapy training, you’ll learn how to hold massive space for your clients and make suggestions that help them reach their highest potential.
Why Do Hypnotherapy Training?
If you’re a coach or anyone who serves others deeply, hypnotherapy training can be an amazing way to expand your toolkit and be able to help even more people.
Because the subconscious mind runs our mind and body, we constantly have thousands of processes happening on an unconscious level, including our habits, rituals, routines, programming…
…And of course, our heart beating, our lungs breathing, and all that other important stuff that happens within our bodies that we don’t even consciously think about!
For the majority of people who aren’t aware of their subconscious mind, making changes can be really difficult.
But by tapping into the subconscious mind, which is what you learn how to do in hypnotherapy training, we can bypass the critical faculty — moving past anything that is not believing or resisting — and start making suggestions to the subconscious mind that create profound changes in your rituals, routines, and habitual behaviors!
ANY identity can be reprogrammed through hypnosis.
Right now, whether you know it or not, you’re running on this hamster wheel of habits and rituals and routines that you repeat every single day — and that can be a good thing or a bad thing.
If you have habits that keep you small, playing the old behaviors on repeat, then that’s going to stop you from creating the life you want. You’ll find you keep getting in your own way!
But if you can tap into the person you want to be and ask yourself, “What are the habits THAT person has…?”
…Then you can make THOSE things your habits, and you’ll have the habits of a successful person!
Even though it starts in your mind, in your thoughts, you’ll soon see it play out in your reality.
Because here’s the thing — time is your most valuable asset.
When you’re spending your time on habits that support you, empower you, and help you achieve mastery — the life you want becomes effortless and feels EASY, because it’s created from the habits you have on rinse and repeat.
So let me ask you:
What repeats over and over in your head every single day?
What habits do you run every day — are they supporting you or limiting you?
What are the habits and beliefs of the version of you who has your dream life?
Just by shifting those habits, you create new neural pathways, and you can learn faster and take in more… and in hypnotherapy training, you’ll learn how to do just that.
The beauty of hypnotherapy is that we can instill beliefs, habits, rituals, and routines in our clients with simple techniques…
…And just like that, we can shift the way our clients view the world and how they live their lives!
How You Can Use Hypnotherapy Training
A few of the most common ways people put their hypnotherapy training to use is by helping clients quit smoking, lose weight, or instill new habits and beliefs that support them in achieving their goals.
So many people are living in this constructed paradigm of “I’ve hit my potential, there’s no more for me.”
The work we do as coaches is to help people BREAK OUT OF that box, and show them that they are limitless.
I used to have SO much negative self-talk… and I thought that was just my life.
Because of who I was — my background, my experience, my upbringing — all of that had me thinking negative, limiting thoughts about myself, and believing that was the truth.
But the REAL truth is that our minds have infinite capacity and they are capable of infinite potential!
When I learned how to become the observer of my thoughts, shift my habits, and use affirmations to connect more deeply to my truth and my purpose, I was able to stop and ask myself…
“Does this thought truly serve me?”
As I practiced these tools more and more, soon I was able to wake up and stop going on Instagram first thing in the morning, stop focusing on what everybody else was doing, and instead focus on what I wanted to do.
I used my hypnotherapy training to stay connected to the energy of “Yes, I can do it!” and focus on what I wanted to create.
With hypnotherapy training, you can help people break out of negative thought patterns and replace them with positive ones.
Our thoughts do not define us.
We get to decide to place our attention on what we want.
So ask yourself:
What is repeating over and over in your head?
Are you still holding onto beliefs that you can’t achieve your goals?
Let me give you a hint…
Whenever you have a thought and it doesn’t feel good…
For example, let’s say that you’re going into the office and you’re feeling dread…
…Observe that thought and ask yourself, does it align with where you want to be?
Chances are if it doesn’t FEEL good, it’s a lower vibrational thought — and allowing it to perpetuate will only attract more thoughts like it.
Recognize that anything that does not feel good is a lie.
You do not have to make it your truth.
You have the power!
How I Used My Hypnotherapy Training To Give Birth
Fun fact: Did you know that in the early days of hypnosis, it was often used for surgeries?
Without anesthesia, hypnosis was used to help patients bleed less, feel less pain, and speed up recovery rates.
When you feel pain, the pain doesn’t come from the body part, it comes from your mind. Your mind is giving you a signal — and if you can control your mind, you can alleviate that pain.
…Well, that was definitely true for me when it came to giving birth to my baby, and my hypnotherapy training made a HUGE difference!
Before I get into this story, I just want to say that I think that HOWEVER you choose to bring your little one into the world is perfect — even if you got them from a Stork! So I don’t want anyone to compare how they gave birth to anyone else.
Ever heard the phrase, “How you do one thing is how you do everything?”
For me — I’m the kind of person who is OBSESSED with learning about the subconscious mind and energy — so when it was time for me to give birth, I wanted to have as many tools in my toolkit as possible!
All my life, I had been terrified of giving birth — which I know is true for a lot of women — and it makes sense, considering how much programming we’ve had about how painful and difficult it has to be!
I knew I HAD to reframe those beliefs.
I was determined to hold onto the belief that my body knew exactly what it was doing… and I learned to trust my body through the entire process.
So I listened to hypnosis audios, hired a coach and a doula, watched YouTube videos of positive birth experiences, and took an amazing course called Hypnobabies.
Because I use hypnosis so often in my daily life, I go into trance quite easily.
While I was having contractions, I used what’s called “the learning state” to keep myself out of the kinesthetic pain response.
I had also created an anchor for bliss.
And I used hypnosis to stay in a calm, relaxed state.
With all these techniques, I was able to go from 3 cm to 10 cm dilated in under 45 minutes, and push out my son in under 2 hours after that… with no epidural!
Once You’ve Completed Hypnotherapy Training, How Do You Attract Clients?
You’d be amazed at how quickly you can attract clients once you’ve completed your hypnotherapy training.
When you have these skills and talk about them openly and honestly, people will come out of the woodwork wanting to work with you… and be happy to pay $300-500 for an hour-long session.
(In fact, after I completed my hypnotherapy training, I hopped right into helping people and started off charging $300-400 per hour.)
I remember when I attracted my very first hypnotherapy client… the marketing came about in such a funny and easy way.
I was texting with my friend, and I let her know that I had just completed my hypnotherapy training and I was now certified.
My friend texted me back and made a joke: “Can you hypnotize me to be a puppy?”
I posted the text conversation on Instagram stories, just to be funny, and someone who followed me saw it and reached out, asking me for a hypnotherapy session!
I created a payment link, sent it her way, and before I knew it, I had my first hypnosis client!
So know that just through talking about your hypnotherapy training — how it can help people create a better life, lose weight or quit smoking — you can start attracting clients right away!
I do encourage you to also create high-ticket coaching packages so that you can reach your income goals, which you can learn about in my post on How to Price Coaching Packages.
But when you’re first getting started and you just want to dip your toes in, one-off sessions can be a really fun way to get started, start making money and get used to seeing yourself as the expert you really are.

Is Hypnotherapy Training Right For You?
So how do you know if hypnotherapy training is right for you?
If you’re a coach or want to be a coach, hypnotherapy is SUCH a powerful tool for you to have to support your clients to make massive changes by speaking to the subconscious mind.
Let me ask you this:
Wouldn’t you want to achieve mastery, have more tools, be able to help anyone from any background, and feel comfortable and confident in any situation?
Just imagine the ripple effect that will create for your family, friends, coworkers, and community!
People don’t have to stay stuck. They can move forward. They can catapult their lives!
Remember, your subconscious mind is the most powerful supercomputer that you’ll EVER have access to.
Trust that when you decide what you want to create — the business, the house, the relationship of your dreams — when you decide that is already yours, you set a very powerful target for your subconscious mind.
Your subconscious, the powerful supercomputer, will laser-focus on that goal for you, and it’ll work around the clock to make it yours…
When you’re sleeping, it’ll think of ideas for you.
When you’re talking to someone, it’ll tell you the right things to say.
When you’re putting out a sales page, it’ll show you exactly what needs to be there.
When you’re doing a Livestream, the exact right words will flow through you.
It starts with you setting the target and tasking the subconscious mind to do the work for you, and trusting fully, having the full expectation that it’ll work out for you.
It starts with you deciding that it’s already so.
No reason. No explanation. No cause.
Because you are powerful, and you have infinite abundance within you.
When you decide to create that, miracles will happen to make it so for you.
The Universe does not make mistakes.
