This is an intensive, total immersion, practical course. You will learn the mechanics of hypnosis; how to apply suggestibility tests and what induction techniques work best in a therapeutic setting. You will craft suggestions to meet a client's needs and reinforce positive outcomes as you terminate trance. 


The ability to hypnotize a client is the easy part. Learning the therapeutic applications of trance is somewhat more complex. But the methodology of the course is designed to infuse you with a sense of framework, as opposed to detailed instructions. That makes it possible for you to adapt to every clients' needs individually. 


You will get to experience both giving and receiving the various components of hypnotherapy under Dr. Kweethai’s watchful eye. With close supervision you will learn, apply, practice and reflect as you develop confidence. After all,  competence breeds confidence.

  • Become more effective as a hypnotherapist.
  • Achieve amazing results as a trainer, coach or counselor!
  • As a teacher, make your work easier and more efficient.
  • As a mediator, help disputant parties arrive at positive solutions faster.

A Six-Day Magical Experience

Imagine what you can learn in six days

By the end of this course you will be able to confidently conduct the complete therapeutic process: including suggestibility tests, trance induction, trance deepening, creating a positive suggestion, trance termination and the post-trance debrief. You will be well on your way to adopting appropriate language and imagery. You will be drawing on your own creative resources to help clients overcome specific struggles and roadblocks. These are necessary competencies for anyone seeking to call themselves a hypnotherapist.

Course content is not delivered sequentially as presented in this table. Rather, the sequence of instruction accommodates student needs at any given time. 


This is a master class, so it is presumed you are either already a certified hypnotherapist, or you are licensed in a related field. At 6 days, this is not a comprehensive course. So, you might already have received training from Dr. Kweethai, making progress toward certification in iChange Therapy; or, you are making a commitment to further study and training.


As an Intensive Training, Dr. Kweethai expects students to already have some familiar with her work. So, to get the most from this course, you need to have attended a previous Master Class on Energy Medicine with Dr. Kweethai, either live or on video.

Energy Medicine Meets Hypnotherapy video set
7 hours on USB drive

Energy Medicine Meets Hypnotherapy in Puerto Rico is a video series available from iChange Press. It contains an introduction to Energy Medicine, including demonstrations, from its application in hypnotherapy to energy work.


If you have never attended a live training with Dr. Kweethai, view the video series before coming to this training.

Complete an assignment designated by Dr. Kweethai and you may also qualify for an additional 10 hours of CEs.

Transmuting negative energy to positive is often as simple as changing a single word.

To learn more about Dr. Kweethai's approach to hypnotherapy, order her book.


It is written for a lay audience and has been quite effective at alleviating concerns among potential clients with no prior knowledge of hypnotherapy. 

But it also shows how Dr. Kweethai integrates hypnotherapy with her health promotion training and cultural Chinese background.

Hypnotherapy, An Alternative Path to Health and Happiness by Dr. Kweethai Neill, PhD

If you are still reading, this workshop is for you.

Hypnotherapy will bring a dynamic new element to your current practice. Clients do not need to understand all that is taking place as you communicate with their subconscious. They will be delighted as roadblocks to their health and happiness are replaced with new attitudes and habits.

Instructor: Dr. Kweethai Neill, PhD


Dr. Kweethai’s goal is to elicit health and happiness from within the client, implementing changes toward a better state of well-being and success. When spirit is addressed first in the mind-body-spirit paradigm, the rest follows.

Working with the whole client, not just symptoms, Dr. Kweethai advocates that successful hypnotherapy must ‘deal with what emerges’. Clients experience hypnosis, open-eye trance, energy dowsing and communication skills training for immediate change; and a combination of health education, Feng Shui and Qigong to support their new life path.


Dr. Kweethai left a university post as Chair of Health Studies on a search that led to founding iHealth Center for Integrated Wellness, Inc. She uses hypnotherapy to help clients implement change toward a better state of well-being and success. Her iChange Therapy™ integrates strategies from both east and west to elicit health and happiness from within the client.

Dr. Kweethai is a master hypnotherapy instructor. In addition to having taught hundreds of hours of basic and advanced training, she speaks annually at national and international hypnotherapy conferences. She is a regular contributor to the IMDHA journal Unlimited Human.


Dr. Stork has worked with learners at all levels, from early childhood thru college and adults. He is a keen observer of human behavior, drawing on an extensive background of teacher and learner behaviors to enhance classroom interactions. He has chosen not to practice hypnotherapy, but instead, is curator of Dr. Kweethai's work as it has evolved.


As a pedagogist, Dr. Stork's primary academic training is in the methods and strategies of teaching and assessment. It is what he taught as a University professor. He also supervised field experiences and student teaching.


Dr. Stork also presents frequently at national conferences. He is currently sharing aspects of iChange Therapy using videotaped clips of Dr. Kweethai in action, with an analysis of how her process works.
