Matthew Brownstein, CIHt is the CEO of Anahat Education Group, Inc. (AEG), President of the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists (IAIH), and the Founder and Executive Director of the Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy (IIH), the first State-Licensed Postsecondary Vocational Hypnotherapy Institute through the US Department of Education’s Commission for Independent Education – License #3448. Matthew is also the founder of Silent Light Publishers (SLP) and the Interpersonal Hypnotherapy Clinics (IHC).


Matthew began as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist in 1997 and since then has logged over 18,000 hours of clinical and classroom experience. In 2007, Matthew opened the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy (FIH), which has since expanded and grown into multiple cities across the nation with graduates now spanning the entire globe.  FIH was officially renamed as the Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy in 2013 to better reflect the school’s larger vision and mission.  IIH has now led complete 500+ hour hypnotherapy trainings in: Gainesville FL, Hollywood, FL, Naples, FL, Orlando, FL, Jacksonville, FL, Tampa, FL, Charlotte, NC, Dallas, TX, Salt Lake City, UT, Alexandria, VA, and Crestline and Santa Barbara, CA.


Since 2007, IIH has maintained a 90+% student retention rate and a 90+% positive graduate outcome rate (placement) with the US Department of Education.  IIH also continues to maintain its license through the US Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. By creating a true career education in hypnotherapy, Matthew has created many hundreds of certified hypnotherapists and continues to train and empower instructors, supervisors, examiners and mentors in the field.


Matthew is the author of dozens of books, audio products and CEUs in the field of hypnotherapy, healing and spirituality.  These include Interpersonal Hypnotherapy, The Sutras on Healing and Enlightenment, The Sacred Geometry of Meditation, Peace Under all Circumstances and The Anahat Meditation System.


The International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists (IAIH) continues to be a governing, credentialing and regulatory body for the profession of Hypnotherapy.  IAIH holds yearly Hypnotherapy Conferences and maintains some of the highest standards in hypnotherapy training, ethics,  and credentials.  Matthew also engages in ongoing law and legislative work through IAIH to protect the free and open practice of hypnotherapy throughout the US.


Matthew is the founder of the Interpersonal Hypnotherapy Clinics where his methods are now being used and refined by IIH graduates and IAIH members.  Matthew still remains available for private sessions in hypnotherapy at $250 per hour.  Contact the Institute for more information.
