Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose OMNI hypnosis (basic) training

Within our OMNI hypnosis (Basic) training, learning goes beyond just the techniques of putting someone into hypnosis. What sets us apart is our emphasis on understanding the “why” behind each method. It is this depth of knowledge that makes our training so valuable to participants. With us, you will not only discover how to apply hypnosis techniques, but also gain insight into the underlying principles that make these techniques effective. This understanding is crucial to developing flexibility and self-confidence in your hypnosis practice, improving your ability to navigate various situations and achieve successful results.

How do I choose among the large number of hypnosis courses?

We recommend downloading the study guides of the respective institutes and making a comparison based on the content on offer, as well as a comparison with respect to reputation, quality, deepening opportunities and support after the program.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many students successfully apply what they have learned?
  • How effective are they in their work?
  • Have they been able to apply what they have learned to their practice and are they also financially successful?
  • How well trained are the teachers/instructors and how much experience do they have?
  • Can I get in touch with students who have taken the course. You can find our hypnotherapists on the international OMNI-Finder.
  • Is there quality control regarding teachers?
  • Which feedback do the students give? Is it published and are the reviews verified, i.e. independently registered?
  • Do medical professionals such as doctors, dentists, psychologists and psychiatrists also attend and recommend the training?
  • Is the training recognized and can you join professional associations afterwards?
  • We can answer all these questions in the affirmative. If you wish, we will give you even more specific information about it.
Can I work with it right away?

The training has a practical slant. After practice, you can start using it right away. We explain during the training what challenges you can start with and how to gradually build it up. For those who are considering the course as an adjunct to their current profession, or have other personal considerations, the applicability of the course depends on specific factors such as prior education and professional goals. Please feel free to contact us if you are unsure about anything.

Can I use OMNI hypnosis (basic) in combination with OMNI hypnotherapy (advanced) to work as a hypnotherapist?

You can register with the professional association CATcollective and get started as a hypnotherapist (non-reimbursable).

Can I get started as a reimbursable hypnotherapist?

To work as a reimbursable hypnotherapist, you need 2-3 years of professional training. This is a completely different pathway than the one we offer with our training programs. We encourage you to contact the professional association. In particular, the Cat Collective looks at your previous work experience and resume after which you can chart a development path to reimbursable hypnotherapist. We frequently find that someone already has enough education and experience to be immediately registered as a reimbursable hypnotherapist (you can think of a background as a psychologist, orthopedist or the like). Sometimes we are asked to complete our vocational training.

We often receive requests for exemption for this course from hypnotherapists who have already trained elsewhere. This requirement is understandable. However, there are a number of reasons why OMNI Hypnosis Training Center has decided not to grant an exemption. To comply with ISO 9001 certification, the training must be completed in the manner determined by OMNI Hypnosis Training Center in Switzerland, we have no insight into the quality of other trainings, in addition, the content of the hypnosis training (basic) is fully aligned with the hypnotherapy training (advanced). We have a lot of applications from people who have taken other hypnosis training elsewhere and want to go deeper and after the training indicate that they are satisfied that they started with this basic training.
