Training on the life-changing power of hypnosis

Many people want to be able to say they can change other people’s lives and help them improve at least one aspect of it. But, to do it successfully, tools are needed—and Mind Matters Hypnosis can help you learn what those tools are and how to use them. Here’s a secret: you already have them within yourself.

We offer a 100-hour Basic or Advanced Online Hypnotherapy Certification Training Course in NYC by certified hypnotists and expert hypnotherapists. It provides training on the life-changing power of hypnosis.

You will become a Certified Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnosis.

I just completed the Hypnotist certification course with Calypso . This was one of the greatest things I’ve ever done for myself . This course has completely changed my life ! Whether you are looking for a career change , a skill to add to your resume , or just some self care I strongly urge you to take this course . It is such a unique experience and Calypso has does such an amazing job creating a safe space you really create such an amazing bond with the group. The class is not only extremely informative but you also so healing . There is a huge spectrum of what you can use this class for it is not just for therapists looking to add to their sessions . This course is for anybody ! I was genuinely sad when this course finished and have stayed in touch with many of my classmates . I am looking forward and hoping to do more courses with Calypso. I can’t recommend this course enough !!

What I loved about the class was not just the knowledge I obtained-which was everything I expected to learn about hypnosis and so more-but also, the vibe that was created. I felt supported by my instructor and classmates. I felt the experience was bigger and more potent than a typical 8 week online course. I felt like I was a part of a group that was committed not only to learning a new skill, but also to growing and learning in general with the intention of healing ourselves and in turn the collective-in ways that remain in our scope 😉 I also finished the course knowing I have all the tools I need to become an excellent hypnotist-I just need to practice, practice, practice.

The Mind Matters Training is one of the best things I have done. I am thankful I learned a skill to add to the healing modalities I offer in my practice. I am also convinced that hypnosis works. I am confident because I have seen results in my habits, thinking, and body. The training helped me understand the mechanics and it was a space where I could practice bravery and humility. It is vulnerable to learn something new and be a beginner and that is a valuable place for me to be because it helps me remember that feeling for my clients.

Calypso Portugaels

Calypso discovered hypnosis first as a client. In fact, a skeptical one. It took two sessions to make her a believer. Then, a third one to make her realize she had come across a life-changing tool.

Later on, she went on to become a hypnotist herself. Since that transition, she’s been able to see the world in a new way she never thought possible.

From her work as a yoga and meditation teacher, Calypso has witnessed the vast power of the mind-body connection. And she’s learned to normalize practices that could seem a little esoteric or inaccessible. She now feels ready to further share the life changing tools of hypnosis with more people.

She has studied around the world, letting her travels guide her toward a deeper understanding of the human condition.
Calypso believes that all you need to make deep, lasting change is a seed or an intention. With patience, kindness, and humor, she will work with you to define the best way to work toward your goals.

We are now enrolling for 2023 class
