This organization was formed almost 10 years ago with one purpose in mind: To have one organization worldwide to oversee and to set the standards for the hypnosis community. Yes, there were other organizations out there claiming to be the “best,” the “oldest,” the “biggest,” but they were not there for their members. Oh they claimed to have rules, which of course they did not enforce. The bottom line was any one could join who had the money to do so. There was NO consistency; all of the organizations had their own way and their own certification designations. There was no uniformity of any kind.

Dr. D. A. Brady quickly realized a need for one organization to take charge and unify this field. His goal did not take long to fulfill. Today the organization that started with three directors and in-class instruction now has 10 directors and 6 web sites and 45 centers in 11 countries and is the number one supplier of hypnosis distance education in the world. Some of the other organizations have followed his lead. The goal now is to make our organization the number one organization for distance learning for all types of education.

Why we are number #1

We are the number one organization for hypnosis and hypnotherapy and distance education, as well as other forms of education in the world. We certify qualified professionals from around the world. We offer quality education on many levels. We offer a Basic through PhD* in hypnosis/hypnotherapy certifications, NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner, Anodyne Medical Therapist and Forensic Investigator courses as well as other accredited courses and certifications, some not related to hypnosis.

We realize other organizations claim to be the “oldest” or the “largest” or the “best.” We understand this becomes confusing when looking for the right education for your money. That is why we have taken this time to explain to you the differences.

We are affiliated with the oldest continuing, and most prestigious hypnosis organization in the world,
The British Association of Therapeutical Hypnotists founded in 1950-1 in the U.K.

We do not make this claim alone, that we are the number one organization. We let our alumni and the facts speak for us. There are seven main points that separate us from all other similar organizations:

1) Prices
2) Support
3) Guarantees
4) Setting standards
5) The largest presence on and off the Internet.
6) We sell more courses
7) Phenomenal growth

Let us take a moment to explain the differences.

We offer the best prices and back it up with a no-holes-barred guarantee. We offer unprecedented support, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, which is toll free from anywhere in the world and not with an answering service. One of our 10 directors will speak to you personally from 9am to 9pm, 365 days a year and for free. We offer health and malpractice insurance and MasterCard/Visa merchant account discount and continuing education live on line. We hold seminars all over the world. We provide more hypnosis distance education than anyone else.

You might ask, how can you sell for less? Well, we sell more and we produce all of our material in house. (See below)

Example: We offer an NLP course for $599.00; the same course costs between $2,100-$2,500 elsewhere,(price is in a package). We offer several packages starting at $699.00 for all three levels of hypnosis. This is what the others are charging for only one level! Don't be fooled by a box of video tapes.

At our headquarters we produce all of our own material. We do the type setting with 7 computers, print with our own printing facility, collate and bind with all our own equipment. Thus this tremendous savings is passed on to our students.

Compare for yourself.

We offer unprecedented support, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and toll free from anywhere in the world and not with an answering service. One of our 10 directors will speak to you personally from 9am to 9pm, 365 days a year and for free. We take our time and we will answer all your questions. We do care and it shows. Read what our alumni have said about us in the testimonials. One of our directors recentlytalked with a gentleman by the name of Winston Saga from New Zealand at 2:00 am. Try and find this anywhere else.

The American Association of Higher Education has said, “education is only as good as the support.” We agree.

Our dedicated staff enjoys watching the transformation of our students as they learn a new skill and become successful at practicing their newfound skill to help others overcome their problems and make profound changes, all this while earning money.

Example: In Long Island New York we have a woman by the name of Joanne Nucci, who graduated and in less than two months had 22 clients in one week. She reports she earned $1,600 in one week. She only wanted to work part time but she has been so busy it has turned into a full time practice.

This is not an isolated incident. We have an alumna in Colorado who reported she had 8 clients at one time and did $2,400.00 in a day. She also had only 4-6 weeks of experience at the time.

Check out what our Alumni have to say about us. They say it is the best.

The National Board, setting standards worldwide

We are now in the second half of the year and we have not had one single return in the first six months! This, despite the fact that this has been our busiest 6 months ever. This with the national average of 40-60% returns on Internet sales. We believe this speaks for itself. We are proud of our record.

We have for years set the standards in distance education, especially in hypnosis/ hypnotherapy. Whether you want to be a general practitioner or do Anodyne Medical Therapy or be a Forensic Investigator, we offer the full spectrum of accredited courses with more than 20 certification courses to choose from.

We have "board certification" available as well as a "fellowship" and a "diplomat" program.

We are the originators, setting the standards, such as the Master course, the internship, the Board certifications, the unlimited toll free lifetime support 365 days a year, and the first to offer continuing education online and an 800 worldwide number. Also, we offer a payment plan with no interest or carrying charges. We were the first to have more than 45 centers in 11 different countries.

We have 10 directors who are continually setting the highest standards so our commitment to you is to continue to set the highest standards both in quality education and quality service.

We will only accept individuals with no felony record or sex offense record. Yes we do care and believe others should care as well. We believe high ethical standards are of the utmost importance. We do not accept applications from felons or from people who served time or from any sex offenders. The other organizations may not care, but we do.

We have a Code of Ethics, which is enforced. If a charge is made against a member, it will be investigated; if the charge is substantiated, the member will be suspended along with their certifications. This is necessary in order to maintain the highest of standards. We will continue to set the standards for other organizations to follow. This is a responsibility we take very seriously. We are very proud of our organization and its reputation.

Customer satisfaction is our number one priority.

We have the largest presence both on the internet and at our International Headquarters in Central Florida. We have a two-story office building on the main highway in town. We have a separate building on 5 acres for our printing and warehouse facilities. We have 46+ centers in 11 different countries to offer those who feel they need some hands-on experience. Keep in mind that fewer than 1% of our students ever feel a need once they are done to do an internship. Our courses are very easy to follow and understand with a paint by the number approach.But we do offer free internship at any of the centers to make sure each student feels comfortable with the education that he/she receives. This is always free and you can spend as much time as you need.

We have two branch offices, one in the U.K. and one in Sweden. On the Internet now we have 6 web sites, (with secure servers) and more planned by the end of 2003.

We have a not-for-profit board of directors. We have 11 people on staff with only one receiving compensation; the rest are dedicated volunteers, so the money normally spent for payroll is turned back into the organization. We own our building and equipment and this savings is also passed on to our students as well. These are some of the reasons we have grown 40-60% a year for the last 4 years, even 100% in 2002.

We extend an invitation for anyone to stop by and visit us. We are conveniently located in Central Florida hour from Orlando and 20 minutes from Daytona Beach on Rt. 44 in Deland. Take a tour of our facilities.

You might be asking yourself...
How do I know
your material is the best?

We have two PhD's in Education as directors, including one dean of a U.S. college. We offer only accredited courses, thus assuring you the very best education for your money. Having our own printing facility allows us to revise each one of our courses every 12 to 18 months.

We have been providing quality education for the better part of 10 years. We include sales, marketing and advertising. We also include the laws and the do's and don’ts. We believe that this is very important for our students to learn. We are strong in teaching you how to set up a successful practice, including all forms needed.

Two separate accrediting bodies accredit all of our courses, and our courses are constantly reviewed. We are members (in good standing) of several very prestigious educational organizations. (see list on web site)

We are very proud of our courses and the fact they are taught all over the world. Our certificates are good world wide, not just in the U.S.* Our continuing education is mandated and can now be taken online, on this site, for your convenience. *Not in Australia or South Africa.

We do not send you a box of video tapes and call it legitimate education, we do not operate out of a basement of a house as does the "oldest and largest" hypnosis organization,we do not operate from a suite. No, we have a 15 room, 2 story office building on a main highway in town. We are now building a 3,500 Sq. Ft building on 5 acres for our new printing and warehouse facility. We are the only organization of our kind to own all of our own facilities.

Consumer alert

We extend an invitation for anyone to stop by and visit us and take a tour of our facility. Before you give anyone $2,000.00 to $10,000.00 you might want to know that they are not working in a post office box.


All student materials turned in are reviewed by one of our 10 directors to assure that each and every student fully understands and has a firm grasp of what they have learned and that they are able to practice successfully. Each student has complete and unlimited access to one of our directors. They also have lifetime free support. Our courses teach you sales, marketing and advertising, and how to set up a successful practice.

We will continue to be on the cutting edge for many years to come. In 2002 we are offering 11 new courses. These courses are written by world-renowned specialists in each field to assure you the very best courses available and at a reasonable cost.

On January 1, 2002, the Board purchased the exclusive rights to offer a federally protected program to the general public. The program is Anodyne Medical Practitioner, Anodyne Medical Therapist and Anodyne Medical Trainer, www.anodyne.org. We are the only organization in the world to offer these quality courses. You will not be able to receive these from any other organization; we own the exclusive rights to Anodyne Medical. This is working with health care professionals, including working in the operating room. This is currently being used at such prestige institutions as Duke University Medical Center, several VA hospitals and several hospitals in San Francisco for controlling pain and stress/anxiety.

We offer more variety and levels of courses with more prestige certifications. We are offering three Forensic Investigator courses . This allows our students to diversify or just practice as a general practitioner. So whether you go all the way to a PhD or you specialize in Forensic or Medical, we have all the levels you need to become successful. We will continue to offer the best certifications available at the best possible prices anywhere.

We continue to grow at a phenomenal rate. We have now breaking ground on a new 3,500 square foot warehouse and printing facility on 5 acres to handle the tremendous growth.

In the first 5 months of 2002 we had already passed our record breaking prior year (2001). We have grown at least 40-60% each year since our beginning. With more then double the growth in 2002. Keep in mind this growth is through a recession and the dot com business bust.The chart below is a actual five year growth chart and is through December 31st 2002.
