About Us

The Thomas Institute of Hypnosis was founded in 1998 by Cynthia Kile Thomas, an internationally-recognized hypnotherapist and instructor. It is the first postsecondary hypnotherapy school licensed by the State of New Hampshire. Hundreds of hypnotherapists in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, and throughout the United States have successfully completed our ongoing training and certification programs.
Our hands-on hypnotherapy certification program incorporates demonstrations and a color-coded workbook that makes it easy to follow along and practice outside of the classroom. Because our training materials were developed with standards from the National Guild of Hypnotists, those who successfully complete the program are certified both by Thomas Institute of Hypnosis and the NGH.
The Institute comes highly recommended for its training programs and hypnotherapy sessions by the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest worldwide organization of its kind.
