Supplemental Courses

Periodically, ANHI and its accompanying Clinic offer free and paid seminars and/or courses on other topics related to hypnotherapy or that supplement the instruction in the Clinical Hypnotherapy Certification program. When they do offer them, ANHI strongly encourages enrolled students to attend.

2 Examples of Such Additional Offerings:

Relationship Strategies

In most relationships, one person is more comfortable verbalizing, touching and living by their feelings (heart-ruled), while the other feels more comfortable thinking, retaining his or her own counsel, and living by logic and reason (head-ruled). While both possess an ability to act out logically or emotionally, each is more comfortable with one behavior over the other. Some of the very traits that initially attracted you to your partner are often the ones that seem to irritate you later. In this additional course offering, you will learn how to move forward in your current or new partnership armed with a road map showing you where the pitfalls are and how to avoid stumbling into them. You will learn to look at potential partners with new insights. You will identify and understand your sexual suggestibility. Relationship Strategies go beyond the difference of gender.

This course will enhance your skills as a parent, mate, health care professional both in your personal and professional life, and in every other aspect of your life.


We base Relationship Strategies on the research of Dr. John Kappas, who practiced over 40 years in the fields of hypnotherapy, sex therapy, and relationship counseling. He wrote extensively on the subject of hypnotherapy and subconscious programming, and is recognized as a worldwide authority in the field. His theory of emotional and physical sexuality will forever change how you view your relationships and the behavior of everyone you meet.


Did you know that every time you write your name, you unconsciously and automatically stamp your individuality into your signature? Your handwriting is as personal as your fingerprints.
Handwriting is really brain writing. It reflects and reveals the way a person thinks, his or her mental capabilities, emotional and social reactions, as well as talents and traits. Since no two people think or act alike, no two people can have the same characteristics in their handwriting.

Graphoanalysis is the specific name given to a handwriting system that is approached on a scientific basis. The techniques involved have been thoroughly researched and validated as a method that compares favorably to other forms of psychological testing used to measure personality. It is a branch of applied psychology and is the only globally-accepted system for handwriting analysis.
In education, it helps teachers to understand their students.
In the mental health field, it is a useful tool for psychologists, psychiatrists, and physicians to understand their patients.
In business and industry, it can be used to assess job applicants, evaluate credit risks, and formulate sales and marketing plans.
Graphoanalysis is a valuable tool for professionals and individuals who work and interact with people.
