Certified Medical Support-Clinical Hypnosis Practitioner
I am a graduate of the Hypnotherapy Academy of America, located in Albuquerque NM, where I received 400 hours of medical support hypnotherapy training, 50 hours of natal regression and 30 hours of past life regression therapy. The Hypnotherapy Academy of America, the only hypnotherapy school licensed in the United States, is a private Post-Secondary Educational Institute, licensed by the New Mexico Department of Higher Education. Arguably the finest hypnotherapy school in the world, students from 49 states, as well as from 26 countries around the world, have been trained there.The methods developed by and taught at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America were proven effective in a clinical trial by the National Institutes of Health in a study of women with Overactive Bladder Syndrome.
Certified Fellow of the International Board of Hypnotherapy
The IBH was co-founded by Robert Sapien, MD, CMS-CHT, FIBH, Chief of Emergency Pediatric Medicine at University Hospital in Albuquerque, a Medical Professor at the University of New Mexico, School of Medicine and medical support hypnotherapy instructor at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America, and Tim Simmerman-Sierra, CMS-CHT, FIBH, internationally recognized clinical hypnotherapist, author, a former nationally registered paramedic and the lead instructor at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America. The IBH was founded out of a desire to raise the standard for practicing hypnotists and hypnotherapists, as other hypnosis/hypnotherapy guilds and boards only required 300 hours of training, which simply was not enough to assure quality work was being done. The IBH Advisory Council is comprised of an outstanding group of professionals with advanced degrees. All IBH fellows adhere to a strict code of ethics, and maintain continuing education credits as a requirement of their membership. You can learn more here.
