Imagine techniques so simple and so effective that you can now help your clients & patients remove negative emotional issues, blocks and even relieve physical pain that has interfered with their goals.

It works by tapping various acupuncture points while saying specific words. This technique is nothing short of miraculous! You can create amazing changes in these areas and many more: Addictive cravings, fears & phobias, physical pain, relationship issues, learning difficulties, business, career & creative blocks. Experience the power and effectiveness of these easy to use tools to create immediate and permanent change.

Day One: Learn EFT in depth, includes lecture, demonstration and practice.
Day two: Learn how to combine EFT and hypnotherapy in the areas of weight, smoking and stress.

Includes manual and two streaming videos.

Spirit Circle – Next class is Nov. 13th

1 CE hour per class (for hypnotherapists)

Pre-requisite: Hypnotherapy training

A monthly gathering of hypnotherapy professionals

This group started with the intention of connecting at a deeper level with Source, The All that is, God/Goddess… However, it is just as meaningful to connect with one another, to support one another as a community. As our souls connect we elevate one another.

Many of us do this work without community, without support from others in the field. We help others process their emotions and while we benefit by facilitating their sessions it isn’t as effective as being the subject. Have you ever wished you could experience a process yourself that you use with your clients? Now you can– live and in person. After all, the work really is best learned from the inside out.

• Enjoy being the subject

Testimonials from former students:

From students in my 2015 Intuition/Spirituality course:
“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
