ok but for hypnotherapy it is needed. ok then i am going to have to try and get that through to the people at the school
No. As long as you are not giving the impression it is for medical use. To practice medicine, you need to be a doctor.
You can perform hypnotherapy, as a hypnotherapist without a certificate.
Here's some more information on it I have come across so you don't just have to take my word for it.
Do I have to be certified before I can open my private practice?
"Certification is not state licensure or federal approval and is not required for practice in most of the fifty United States. Certification may be misleading by these very titles and claims. With any certifying organization, do your research to discover their true identity and primary purpose through deed and not mere words. Check with your state government for requirements, if any."
Do I need a license to practice hypnotherapy in my state?
"Virtually in all fifty of the United States, a diploma from an Approved State Licensed School is the highest level of legal, official, state government recognition. There is an exception in two states, which require a hypnotherapist to be a licensed psychotherapist. Three states, Indiana, New Mexico and Washington require a hypnotherapist to register with the state."
So basically, there are 2 states that regulate it. You'll have to find out if you're in one of them. 3 states (listed above) require you to just register with your state. That isn't a certification, but rather, it lets them know you are practicing hypnotherapy. There most likely would be a small fee to register, but can probably be done at any registrar's office.
