Tim received training in regression hypnosis in 1989 with Dick Sutphen General hypnotherapy training was in 1992 with Gil Boyne. Gil Boyne was the Academy’s Director of Post Graduate Studies from 2003 to 2008. In 1995, Tim took Marlene and Bill’s course for “hypnotherapy teacher training.” Later that year he was asked by the Goebels to take over the school. In 1996 the State of New Mexico changed its rules to require schools that use the word “college” to provide a minimum of a 2-year degree program. Tim changed the name of the school to Academy of Alternative Therapies, and then two years later to Hypnotherapy Academy of America.
Since 1988, our Hypnotherapy School has been in continuous service to the local community and the world teaching hypnotherapy classes.
In 1989 the U.S. Dept. of Education places hypnotherapy in the “Health Sciences and Humans Services” division of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP).

- Medical schools award a degree in medicine, but graduates need licensure before treating patients.
- Universities award a degree in counseling, but the graduate needs licensure before conducting therapy with patients.
- The Hypnotherapy schools awards a diploma, but the graduate needs certification before conducting sessions with clients for a fee.
- We recommend certification with the International Board of Hypnotherapy because it has the most rigorous standards for certification in clinical hypnotherapy.
