Since training in clinical hypnosis isn’t (at least not yet) regularly offered in graduate training programs or in medical residencies, most professionals get their training through seminars and workshops given either by specific experts or sponsored by professional hypnosis societies. Earlier I mentioned the International Society of Hypnosis (ISH), which can be reached at their website: They are the parent organization to hypnosis societies in dozens of countries (such as the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the Australian Society of Hypnosis, and so forth). These societies are comprised of a variety of qualified health professionals (psychologists, physicians, etc.) who all share a common passion for the merits of hypnosis in clinical practice.

You would do well to do just a little bit of research about the availability of a branch of the hypnosis society in your country or even your immediate area, since the national societies typically have branches in each major city as well. You can get in touch with your national society and inquire as to the availability of their training programs.

In the United States, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) holds trainings on a regular basis. ASCH can be contacted through their website:

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation in Phoenix, Arizona, conducts training programs in hypnosis. For more information, you can contact them through this website:

The National Pediatric Hypnosis Training Institute (NPHTI) has the unique focus of providing training in the art and science of hypnosis for children and adolescent. You can contact NPHTI at their website:

I regularly run clinical hypnosis trainings for health care professionals  all over the world, as well as in my home town of San Diego, California. You can visit my teaching schedule on this website to see if and when I might be in your area conducting a training. I also regularly accept invitations to travel and teach, as you will see from my schedule, should you wish to organize a training locally.
