Matthew, this was the most amazing 6 months!! It was no doubt the BEST most thorough training I could have ever hoped for, taught in a space of love, trust, healing and much laughter! Words seem insufficient to capture my gratitude at having been guided to you and your school.

This was the most incredible healing experience of my life as well as the opportunity to share this with a group of loving and courageous people who I am now proud to call my friends."When the student is ready the teacher appears"... you are this and so much more~~~and your zany sense of humor made it fun and kept it light!

Teri Perrin, Clinical Certified Hypnotherapist

I wholeheartedly recommend the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy (FIH) as both a excellent school and clinic. The training is comprehensive, well-organized, and beautifully presented and graduates have been educated to be sensitive, effective hypnotherapists who treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. This orientation allows clients to reach their stated goals quickly and also go beyond them to achieve results such as increased overall vitality, deep serenity, and true comfort... Read More

I'm still not quite sure what led me from Northern Michigan to the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy and Matthew Brownstein. But, I'm pretty sure I know the answer, and I am so thankful that of all the places I could have picked to pursue my certification in Clinical Hypnotherapy, that FIH is the one I chose.

The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy's

Headquarters in Tampa, Florida

Starting a new career in Hypnotherapy is a choice that should be researched thoroughly. Hypnotherapy is an occupation through the US Department of Labor. Therefore, a school must be licensed through their respective State’s Department of Education to offer certifications in that occupation. Diplomas and/or Certifications from schools that are not licensed are not legitimate. We cannot stress this enough when choosing a hypnotherapy school and hypnosis certification.

Hypnotherapy schools also need to have credentialing bodies that are respected and well-acknowledged in the field. Because of the high-standards found at The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy we have chosen to create an association that has become a regulating, governing and credentialing body in the field of Hypnotherapy Education.  The International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists has become an intimate part of IIH to continually work to improve its hypnosis courses and training through a solid Board of Advisors, Directors and Technical Supervisors to ensure cutting edge technologies and the delivery of the best hypnotherapy education possible. We not only maintain the highest credentials possible, yet we also never stop improving our training manuals, our eLearning systems and our administrative systems. You can rest assured we never cease to work on doing our very best to offer a hypnotherapy training that meets and far exceeds industry standards.


20-Hour Hypnosis Training

Summary: Hypnosis Training and Hypnotherapy Training at the Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy consists of a 300, 400 or 500 clock hour Hypnotherapy Education through the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists. Our Hypnotherapy School is State-Licensed by the Department of Education and offers Hypnotherapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy Certification. Through State approval we now also offer Diplomas in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy as well. We continually work to maintain the highest standards of Hypnotherapy Education while you Learn Hypnosis and Learn Hypnotherapy in a school where excellence and integrity are considered paramount.


Our nationwide Hypnotherapy School is where you learn Hypnotherapy, learn Clinical Hypnotherapy and Transpersonal Hypnotherapy in actual classrooms and practice rooms under direct supervision. We believe it is important to learn Hypnosis in an actual School of Hypnotherapy where teachers and supervisors are with you every step of the way towards your Hypnotherapy Certification. In addition to a strong emphasis on practical hours, we also allow students to take many of their classroom hours from an e-learning platform where distance education and learning hypnosis from home also become a reality.  The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy hypnosis certification programs are meticulously designed and continually refined to train you in becoming extremely competent in professional Hypnotherapy. Hypnosis Training and Hypnotherapy Training classes are purposely kept small to offer a solid student/teacher ratio and the Hypnotherapy Institute itself is designed with one purpose in mind - namely that you become a Hypnotherapist through an actual School of Hypnotherapy based upon the highest standards in the industry.

Advanced advertising and marketing programs are designed to help graduates in setting up their own private practice. Once you enter into our classroom whether at home or directly in-house, you will experience the true heart and spirit of hypnotherapy.


You will learn that hypnosis education is not just about credentials and certificates. It is about love. It is about caring. It is about forgiveness; and most importantly it is about people. We train you to become a hypnotherapist to not only create a rewarding, meaningful and fulfilling career, yet we also aim to show you true personal growth and inner transformation through the power of your own mind.


Hypnosis is only one way to do this. Hypnotherapy becomes a part of us because it helps us to know who we truly are and to clear the blocks to that which we are not.  Upon graduation as a Hypnotherapist, Clinical Hypnotherapist or Transpersonal Hypnotherapist you will find a wealth of resources from our school. We offer the ability to repeat our training at no charge for students in good standing, from home or in school, to work with mentors long after your training, to continue with hypnotherapy continuing education hours and to even work with our medical hypnosis and corporate outreach teams. Whether you start your own private practice in Hypnotherapy or stay with us as an Associate, we remain dedicated to our graduates to help to ensure their success. Please check out our Graduate Testimonials to see for yourself.  We encourage you to take the time to explore our website, learn about hypnotherapy distance learning, introductory hypnosis courses, student and graduate resources in our community section and certainly remember to explore the importance of State-Licensure and International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists Certification. We are always happy to chat with you via phone, email or through our online distance learning eClassrooms. (800) 551-9247 or info@tfioh.com
