Live CE Courses



Intuition and Spirituality

15 CE hours for Hypnotherapists
“Prayer is us talking to God; intuition is God talking to us.” Caroline Myss

Course description: Everyone has a sixth sense – that of intuition – but because of daily demands on time, energy, and senses, we don’t use it as often as we could.

When we do use our intuition, life flows more easily. The exercises in this course will help you to intuit which way to guide a hypnotherapy session to help the client achieve a profound outcome or for guidance in your personal life.

Cultivate the Spirit Within falls into the same realm. It is easy to be caught up in rushing through life. But when we learn how to connect more fully, we realize that we are being divinely guided.

This experiential course will set you onto or further along the path to being Divinely guided in your personal and professional life.

You will have new material to use with your clients along with further developing your intuition and connection to spirit.

“Getting the focused attention of those you are teaching, speaking clearly and simply explaining processes, while supplying useful paper takeaways is your strong suit. It’s known that one can leave a Zimmerman workshop with a plan you can put into effect, for the benefit of your career… You are able to make others see what is truly possible in a very clear way. It’s something that all new practitioners seek to moor to, in order to manifest their own firmly grounded practice in what is mainly a wiggly world of self-employment and misconception about the practice.”  ~Patricia Reynolds Sorbye, CHT

Future Life Progression

10 CE hours for hypnotherapists

Pre-requisite: hypnotherapy training

The more I use this process the more excited I am about the possibilities and ways that clients can benefit. Based on the work of several experts in future life work, this training will teach you how to guide your clients far into their future and into their future lives. They will experience first hand the outcome of their current choices. Once they make a different choice in the here and now, they will affect their future. Study the material ahead of time, then come to our online lab for hands-on practice.

Future life progression can help you to evaluate your decisions in this life by accessing a future life memory. You can see the karmic effect of your current choices. This allows you to change or address issues that may be preventing you from moving forward in your current life. You can also end an ongoing karmic pattern that you may have carried through multiple lives.

In Past Lives, Future Lives Revealed, the author discusses a case in which his client found the root cause of his difficulty to lie in a future life. How could this be? The subconscious mind is not subject to time as the conscious mind is. The conscious mind replays memories in a linear fashion which gives the impression of time however the subconscious mind can recall memories regardless if they are from the past, present, or future.

Those experiencing future life progressions have reported feelings of ease, clarity, understanding, and even inspiration concerning their current lives.

Most people have questions and concerns in two areas: career and relationships. This month our focus will be on career choices.

Benefits of a Future Life Progression (FLP)

  • Find a career direction in your current job – make the right moves to maximize your potential and escape a dead-end role
  • Test a new career path – identify your true vocation and implement a career change with confidence and success

  • Make changes in your life – if you’re unhappy with your life path, FLP will help you to know that you will escape your rut.

In this experiential class you will learn what to expect from hypnosis and enjoy a group progression to a future life.

I have tried for most of a decade to make sense of tapping, and was simply unsure what to do with it or whether it was effective. I was a bit skeptical, to tell the truth. You’ve made it clear that it works and how to use EFT as a simple tool in conjunction with hypnosis. ~Kristine Anselmo


“… I thought of you and felt very grateful since I knew EFT inside and out… THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! You were the one who taught me EFT and I have never forgotten it. I have used it with clients and I use it for myself. I have been and will always be eternally grateful to you for teaching it to me (along with others)… So thanks to you…” ~Linda Compton

Testimonials from former students:

“Katherine is an amazing gifted teacher. Her class was my very first exposure to learning hypnotherapy. Her ability to teach challenging material while simultaneously instilling self-confidence and ease with delivery goes beyond remarkable. She literally was able to take me far beyond the fundamentals by completion of Level Two. Katherine helped me gain the assurance to use this clinical methodology within my own medical practice. Hypnotherapy has become an exciting clinical tool that I use often in my medical practice to help my patients with the emotional burdens and struggles with life.

“I am a physician who believes that using only medication to help patients with pain and suffering is not enough. My realization for the enormous shift I made in my abilities with hypnotherapy came shortly after our class was completed. I am giving this example through a very personal story. I was able to help a very close friend come to terms with his death. His life had taken a very bad turn from cancer. He was in crisis, was suffering and very emotional. As it turned out, it was his last few weeks on earth. I used many of Katherine’s scripts during our multiple hypnotherapy sessions. Her writings are very beautiful and inspiring. My friend, in the end, was able to pray, all suffering was eased and he passed peacefully. I would not have been able to help him without the ability to teach him self-hypnosis. I highly recommend Katherine’s class to all those interested in learning this gift.”  Sandra Perez MD, HT


“As always Katherine’s class was excellent. Informative and creative beyond expectations.”


“A great listener; aware, discerning, insightful, joyful.”


“Your style is unique in that you have a way of ‘becoming one’ with the students you teach. You integrate yourself so well that one feels they are listening and responding to a good friend who knows and understands their problems. You begin helping them overcome obstacles, and reach beyond themselves as soon as you start talking. Your unshakable self confidence envelops the student creating the necessary atmosphere in which to grow and learn. As I observed this remarkable teaching skill, respect and admiration have only grown since I first sat in your class.”    Mary A. Caldwell, CHT


“If you look up the word ‘professionalism’ in the dictionary, you will see Katherine Zimmerman’s picture. Katherine conducts her hypnotherapy training courses with great integrity, passion and commitment. She is as excited to witness the growth in her students’ professional skills and personal development as the students themselves. From the first time I met Katherine, I knew she would be the right teacher from whom to obtain my hypnotherapy certification training. Katherine learned from the best: her teachers comprise a ‘Who’s Who’ of the top names in modern Hypnotherapy. In addition to her wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience gleaned from many years in private practice, Katherine’s genuine warmth and natural wit make her hypnotherapy training a truly entrancing and life-transforming experience.”
Nancy Tracy, CHT


“Katherine is a wonderful teacher and her course is outstanding at every level. Her teaching style is hands on and the classes are very participatory. Students begin practicing hypnosis during the very first weekend class. Katherine’s style is to discuss a technique (and she teaches many), then demonstrate it with one of the students. After that, the students begin practicing it on each other, under her close observation. Within a week of my first class, I was successfully using the techniques she taught us with my own clients. The results have been nothing short of remarkable. What I thought would be just another tool in my therapeutic toolbox, has become one of my primary tools. I wholeheartedly recommend Katherine and The California Hypnotherapy Academy to anyone interested in learning more about hypnosis and hypnotherapy.”     Ray Brown, PhD, LMFT, CCHT
