I believe hypnosis has profound powers to help you stop sabotaging yourself.

Studies show that hypnosis can be effective in treating everything from chronic pain to poor study habits. Chances are it can work for you.

The purpose of hypnosis as a therapeutic technique is to help you understand and gain more control over your behavior, emotions or physical well-being.

Hypnosis is the epitome of mind-body medicine. It can enable the mind to tell the body how to react, and modify the messages that the body sends to the mind.

MODULE ONE: Hypnotherapy & Guided Imagery immerses you in a fast, easy, and FUN 7-day mind-body training experience that’s ideal for those who want to quickly understand the fundamentals of modern hypnotherapy—with a maximum of hand-on training that meets the standards and guidelines of excellence of the American Board of Hypnotherapy.

We get right to the heart of it—so you learn in a practical, logical and inspiring way. And throughout, we reinforce your understanding of “the big picture”, a well as all the essential details.

Because of the high level of individual attention you receive, along with the clarity of our functional, common-sense approach, our MODULE ONE can inspire confidence and understanding in a matter of days rather than months.

I completed the Hypnotherapy Certification Training. Excellent! Jack and Evelyn are great teachers. Material is presented clearly and thoroughly. Highly recommend.

Approved by the American Medical Association in 1958, hypnotherapy has long been known as an effective, evidence-based solution for stress, habit control, and self-improvement.

In fact, the article Hypnosis: The Most Effective Treatment You Have Yet to Prescribe published in the American Journal of Medicine (3/2021) mentions “robust evidence” for using hypnosis “for myriad ailments” and “sound mechanistic data” that supports its use. It also states “if hypnosis was a drug, it would be standard of care” because it “improves procedural pain and emotional distress and reduces medication consumption up to 40%”.

Hypnotherapy is an impressive therapeutic choice in terms of cost, short duration of therapy, and results. A comparative study (below) found it to be one of the most effective of all the major therapeutic approaches.


Published in Psychotherapy Magazine, v7n1 and Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, and Practice

But many don’t realize that modern hypnosis is less a process of programming someone with scripts or suggestions, and more an opportunity to help them access the amazing skills of their creative, subconscious mind.

It isn’t the amount of time. It isn’t the theory. It’s how you reach the personality by saying the right thing at the right time … Each person is a unique individual. Therapy should be formulated to meet the uniqueness of the individual’s needs, rather than tailoring the person to fit the hypothetical theory of human behavior.

In MODULE ONE, you’ll develop a flexible, creative approach to the art and science of modern hypnotherapy that actually works in the real world.

That means you’ll learn more than just one style of hypnosis. And you won’t have to watch long, boring videos of someone else doing hypnosis. You’ll see it live, you’ll experience it yourself—and you’ll do it in a setting that provides you with a sound knowledge of the fundamentals along with expert supervision.

You’ll also shift into a helpful, empowering mindset that’ll keep you from limiting yourself, your clients, and your results.

Here you’ll discover hypnosis and guided imagery are skills that can be easily learned. If you’re a coach or therapist, you’ll wonder why you didn’t learn this sooner. If you’re a health-care professional, you’ll love how easy and smooth your practice becomes.

After successfully working with the remarkable power of the subconscious mind in MODULE ONE, you’ll advance into MODULE TWO: NLP-Mind Coaching Fundamentals to discover more truly liberating skills that’ll be with you for the rest of your life. Because great coaches know how to work with the subconscious!

The hypnotherapy certification training led by Jack and Evelyn was both educational and experiential, not to mention very fun! I’m a Licensed MFT working with brain injured patients. Adding hypnotherapy to my practice not only advanced my personal learning and growth, but enhanced the therapeutic quality and benefits experienced by my patients. Often, as a result of stroke or other type of brain injury, some patients experience weakness or paralysis on one side of their body. Through hypnosis, for example, one of my patients regained the ability to move a part of his body that had been paralyzed by stroke. This is just one example of the healing properties hypnotherapy can provide. In my practice, I now frequently integrate hypnosis to help patients with other problems such as stress management, anxiety and phobias, and weight loss. I can’t thank Jack and Evelyn enough for their amazing teaching and training!

Are our trainings online or in-person?

Our trainings are proudly in-person, hands-on, and experiential.

Getting certified in hypnotherapy or NLP online is like going online to get a black belt in martial arts.

Besides, we all learned during the lockdowns of 2020 that online learning is a poor substitute for in-person learning.

In general, online trainings (and most standard education) consist largely of a lot of “what”. Simply memorize and regurgitate the info and you pass the course. That is most definitely NOT the way to learn the art of NLP and hypnotherapy.

In contrast, we consider your unique learning style and provide you with a good balance of “what”, “how”, “why” and “what if”. Learning with us is a unique opportunity to receive maximum instructor interaction, enrich your mind in new and engaging ways, and experience a huge, positive shift!

Experiential learning is a well-known model in education. It builds skills, confidence, and gives you the opportunity to practice. It also develops attitudes such as curiosity, a willingness to experiment, and self-direction.

Also, being hands-on is crucial when learning NLP and hypnotherapy because it allows you to engage in kinesthetic learning while also having access to real-time coaching and feedback as you learn.

Can you take Module 1 now, and Modules 2 and 3 later?
Yes, and please keep the following in mind:

We designed our one-of-a-kind, three-module training in Advanced Life Coaching™ so that you acquire a keen appreciation of (and direct experience with) the power of working deeply with the subconscious mind in Module 1.

Module 1: Hypnotherapy & Guided Imagery is 40% of learning our advanced approach to helping others.

Successful coaching is everything that takes place before the hypnotherapy/guided imagery begins in your sessions with clients. Great hypnotherapists are great coaches as well!

In Module 2: NLP-Mind Coaching and Module 3: Creating Your Future® Coaching, you are trained in the most innovative approaches to effective, solution-based coaching that also work with your client’s subconscious mind (a crucial factor that’s usually absent in the majority of coach trainings).

This enables you to holistically work “outside the box”, have a deeper understanding of your client’s unique issues, ask the right questions, customize your approach to each individual client (a rarity in the helping professions), help them quickly let go of negative emotions and limiting beliefs from their past, and much more.

Additionally, by completing all three modules, you will experience a breakthrough in your own personal and professional growth—plus have a powerful skill set for a more compelling future.

Modules 2 and 3 are 60% of our unique, results-oriented training (and are meant to be taken together—one after the other).

Please visit our Module 2 and 3 page to learn more about the importance of the remainder of your training.

You can also visit our FAQ page to learn more about how the Coaches we train are different from many other coaches and therapists.

Can you take Module 2 and 3 before taking Module 1?

Modules 2 & 3 are only 60% of learning our groundbreaking, results-oriented approach to helping others.

We designed our unique, one-of-a-kind training in Advanced Life Coaching™ so that you first acquire a keen appreciation of (and direct experience with) the power of working deeply with the subconscious mind as your initial foundation before going into your next trainings.

Great coaches know how to work with the subconscious mind!

Therefore, we recommended that students who have no prior experience in working with the subconscious mind complete Module 1: Hypnotherapy & Guided Imagery before taking Module 2: NLP-Mind Coaching and Module 3: Creating Your Future® Coaching.

Also, keep in mind that in order to be certified as an Advanced Life Skills Coach™, you are required to complete all three of our training modules.

Can you take Module 2 without taking Module 3?

No. Module 2: NLP-Mind Coaching and Module 3: Creating Your Future® Coaching are meant to be taken together—one after the other.

The Difference That Makes the Difference


There’s a disconnect between the coaching and hypnotherapy professions.

Many coaches are perceived as unqualified because they don't know how to work with the subconscious mind for lasting change, while many hypnotherapists haven't yet grasped the value of highly effective coaching in their own practices.


For over a decade, our training has successfully bridged that gap.

How? By offering a one-of-a-kind curriculum  incorporating the best of modern hypnotherapy, innovative coaching techniques, practical NLP, and other critical elements that give you an advanced approach to helping others get excellent results in their lives.

Includes Mastermind Group Support

Stay encouraged and on track as you continue to grow personally and professionally!

Evelyn’s group coaching has been extremely impactful on my life, both professionally and personally. Over the course of 8 months, I saw myself transform immensely with the help of this group. The group allowed me to be in charge of my journey as it was up to me to decide what I was going to bring to the group each week and how I was going to show up. It taught me how to hold myself accountable, be vulnerable, ask for help, and gave me a sense of agency. I also enjoyed learning from my peers as they were often going through similar situations; helping them was similar to helping a client as your mentor observes. It is really an all around excellent environment for true growth … the type of growth that includes healing through reflecting, forgiveness, and acceptance. Thank you Evelyn and others who have been on this wild ride with me!!!
