What Makes This Program Unique

Clinical Focus

This program is highly specialized in its focus on the integration of clinical hypnotherapy into holistic and mind-body-spirit counselling, mental health and trauma-informed psychotherapy. The program is exclusive to trained and regulated (or registered) mental health professionals.

The programming is unique in its blending of both classical and clinical styles of hypnosis, giving you a truly comprehensive knowledge base and solid foundation from which to draw upon in your work with diverse groups of clients.

Intensive and Experiential Approach

This course is experiential and practice-based, with a maximum classroom size of 25 students. You won’t be wasting any time listening to boring lectures – it’s assumed you already did enough of that in your university training. Now, you’ll be asked to “hit the ground running” on incorporating hypnotherapy into the clinical work you already have training in and know exactly how to do!

Practice, Practice, Practice

You’ll be practicing hypnotic inductions on Day 1, refining your trance work tool-kit by Day 3, and completing field work and your own case studies (for supervisory and peer feedback) after Day 4. The course is open to mental health professionals with no previous experience in hypnosis, but has also been designed to complement beginner and intermediate training that you may have taken elsewhere. If you already have some experience with hypnotherapy, no problem: you’ll find this Program to be precisely what you need in “putting it all together.”

On-site combined with Distance Learning

Your hypnosis training begins with an intensive in-person classroom hypnosis training (Phase 1).  You will then be automatically enrolled into the Daybreak Distance Hybrid program (no additional cost). Through the Distance program, you will be provided with easy access to videotaped recordings of all Phase 2 and Phase 3 class sessions (to be viewed at your own pace), along with regular webinar-based check-in meetings with faculty to ensure continued progress and momentum.


You must be a regulated or registered mental health professional, trained in clinical counselling and legally permitted to practice psychotherapy or clinical counselling in your region.

Early Registration Recommended

As this signature training is our most popular, it sells out each year.  We recommend registering early due to limited space capacity.

Professional Feedback

Over 90% of Daybreak students rate this training program as "excellent."  Below is an excerpt of some qualitative feedback we have recently received from graduates:
