Hypnotherapy Certification Courses in San Francisco Bay Area

Greetings to Northern California! Thank you for your interest in our world leading Hypnotherapy Certification courses. Click here if you live elsewhere

Our Summer program on weekends just got underway. Our accelerated intensive beginning August 6 is filling fast. We have had to turn away many prospective students from full courses. If you are interested in this program, we recommend you sign up soon to ensure your place.

See our Course Schedule for the exact dates.

You are welcome to take just a portion of any of our available programs, so we invite you to join a class even if you can just fit the first one or two levels into your schedule. You can use our secure sign-up page, or reserve your place by phone or mail, or contact us by email.

Our upcoming class is our last new program this year. However, it is possible to start in that program and switch over to finish this semester in our current program meeting on weekend days that began on June 25. Our next Level One class meeting on weekend days begins January 28, as detailed on our website.

See Hypnosis Certification Courses for details about our programs. We meet in Corte Madera, a 10-minute drive north of the Golden Gate Bridge or six minutes from the Richmond Bridge, conveniently within a block of Highway 101.

A leading hypnotheapy school for 38 years, we have taught thousands of graduates from 50 countries including many leaders in the field. We are continuing to break new ground with innovative teaching and therapy methods.

HTI has various major approvals, including eligibility for National Certification by the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, the original and primary Hypnotherapy Certification agency with over 9500 members.

An aspect of his outstanding leadership in the field, HTI founder and lead instructor Randal Churchill was the first A.C.H.E. President and completed his most recent term in 2012. He is the author of leading books in the field.

Our other primary instructor, Cheryl Canfield, is author of the award-winning book Profound Healing, receiving rave reviews from Wayne Dyer, Caroline Myss, Joseph Chilton Pearce and Gerald Jampolsky.

Whether you are seeking hypnotherapy training for a career, as an adjunct to a therapeutic specialty, or for personal growth or research, or whether you are a hypnotherapist seeking to deepen your mastery of the field, we hope you can participate in the priceless learning and growth experience at HTI!

Serving Northern California . . .
Our San Francisco Bay Area weekend classes are always structured to be all-day meetings, so that the participants can get the most accomplished with the least travel. Classes are conveniently located next to Highway 101, at the Corte Madera Inn in Corte Madera, near San Rafael. The Inn is 10 minutes' drive north of the Golden Gate Bridge. We are six minutes from the Richmond Bridge, the route from Oakland and the East Bay.

Many students in the weekend class have come from the Greater San Francisco Bay Area counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Monterey, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. We have had many students who commuted from beyond San Jose, Sacramento and Santa Rosa. In fact, some motivated students have commuted to our weekend classes from Southern California, Nevada, and other states!

Serving the World . . .
We schedule two accelerated programs (50 hours per week) each year. This is both for persons who live in other areas and for Northern Californians who would prefer this format. Our classes are near San Francisco, with good access by bus from the airport and other Bay Area locations. Every semester, many satisfied people from around the US and the world complete our classes.

Free Events

We invite you (and a family member or friend if you'd like) to come to one of our next free introductory evening meetings on Wednesday, July 20 or Thursday, August 25 at 7:00-8:30 pm. Meanwhile, we encourage you to bookmark our website, which is frequently updated.

Corte Madera Inn
Our classes have been established for 28 years at the lovely Corte Madera Inn, which has a five acre resort-like setting and plenty of free parking.


This was received from Frank Powell, on his way to becoming a Certified Hypnotherapist:

"I am still buzzing from the first two days of Level Two. I had quite some expectations of what this level would be like and what I would learn, but you two went far past those expectations in just the first hours of class. The balance of both your styles of hypnosis and teaching are so harmonious. I love hypnotherapy!

"After working in the automotive dealer environment for twenty years, I had lost hope that a job with full truth and integrity was still on the planet. Not only is your teaching bathed with truth, integrity, love and compassion, so are the students. Thank you for creating this space on earth for such learning and healing."


Raves from San Rafael
     "I highly recommend HTI as an exceptional school for training in the field of Hypnotherapy. Your commitment and individual attention to each student was like nothing I've ever seen. My business grew steadily each month after I graduated, and within four months I began making a successful living as a Hypnotherapist. Thank you for continuing to be very supportive and for really being there assuring my success.
     "I know your training is the best I could have received. Also I will always treasure the life transforming experience that took place while studying with you!"
-Ericka LaVigne, Certified Hypnotherapist, San Rafael, CA
