Not All Hypnosis Trainings are Alike!
Here is some of what makes our program special:
We are the only hypnosis program in America that trains you in how to work directly with the clients inner guides and higher self as the primary source of healing.
We provide state of the art instructional quality and materials. We have a new 200 page workbook created by an instructional design engineer and which is used in hypnosis trainings throughout the country.
It contains the best technology available today for healing the "inner child", rescuing the child from trauma and neglect of the past, and providing that child with new, loving parents from the inner world.
We provide the most extensive and thorough in-class supervision of any hypnosis program in America. Each afternoon the class is divided into groups of two or three students working under the direct supervision of a trained hypnotherapist who is a member of our apprenticeship program. This 1:3 teacher student ratio is unequaled anywhere in the hypnotherapy training field. This program is thus able to generate a profound personal growth experience for every participant. This transformation of the student is a primary goal of our training.
We provide the most extensive training in, "Past Life Regression" available today.
- Clearing past life traumas
- Bringing forth creative abilities from past lives
- Clearing karmic debts
- Clarifying and Identifying troublesome relationship patterns from past lives
- Identifying values and beliefs carried from previous lives
- Evaluate the need to change these values and beliefs
- Changing the personal destiny we have chosen as the purpose of this incarnation
Also provided is state-of-the-art training in building a successful practice including
- The Client/Therapist Relationship and ethics
- Marketing your practice in your community
- Networking with professional peers and community
- Medical referrals
- 25 hours of the training are devoted to this important material
- 25 hours on weight loss and smoking (and other common issues)
- Students give and receive a supervised hypnotic session almost every day of the program
In addition our program offers a profound experience of personal transformation
first 100 hours of the Alchemical training is called the personal growth
training. It provides an exceptional personal experience of transformation
through group support, insight and daily experiential processes. As
a member of the "personal growth" team, you will not be required
to demonstrate specific hypnosis skills. This program costs only $2,000.00 (or $1,800.00 if paid 3 weeks in advance) plus textbooks.
(also room and board if applicable) Here's what people are saying about
the personal growth program:
These hypnotherapists trained at other world famous schools before taking our hypnotherapy training program. Here is how they compared our program to theirs.
Not all hypnosis trainings are alike!
After attending four other schools of hypnosis in the United States and appreciating what they had to offer, I have high standards in evaluating any new school. However, I was "blown away' by the awesomely brilliant and comprehensive system of Alchemical Hypnotherapy developed by David Quigley! What deeply impressed me were several things other schools either did not offer or offered in small doses.
First, the manual, combined with David's in-class notes, was the most comprehensive and detailed workbook I have ever encountered. The rationale for the use of every technique was first explained and then the logic of each step. Moreover, every contingency was accounted for, enabling the beginning hypnotherapist to feel confident in facilitating any of the techniques.
Second, each day the lecture was immediately followed by an afternoon's worth of small group work, in which students practiced the techniques with each other under the guidance of superbly trained assistants. These assistants added their own nuances to David's processes, further enriching the work. And these daily practices ensured that the students would imbed the modalities not only into the conscious mind, but also deeply into the subconscious.
Third, Alchemical Hypnotherapy addresses the mental, emotional, spiritual and even physical aspects of the client. The Somatic Healing classes, for instance, address all these levels with techniques unparalleled in their substance and effectiveness. Moreover, the spiritual aspects of the client's issue are treated, not as something esoteric and foreign, but rather as an integral and even an everyday part of the client's healing. Whenever I would wonder if there was an Alchemical technique to address a special issue, all I had to do was look in the catalog; and there it would be, in one workshop or another. This is not surprising since David brings to his creations a wide variety of perspectives that he combines into a seamless and practical, yet far-reaching system.
Fourth, Alchemical Hypnotherapy offers not just insight into and emotional release for a client's problem, but also relief from the problem itself through actually changing the past traumatic circumstances. In effect, Alchemical work gives the client a new childhood, often with the discovery of loving and accepting Inner Parents. These changes in the past ripple ahead energetically to positively affect the client's present self. This is not just a change in perspective about the past; it is, instead, a changing of the past itself with profound effects on the client's present body and his/her emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions.
Fifth, the Alchemical Hypnotherapy Training created, quickly and easily, a deep camaraderie among the students that I have not encountered anywhere else. The practice modules, in particular, provided the safety students needed to be vulnerable enough to work effectively with some of their most delicate and private issues. Deep friendships began in this alchemical vessel.
If, for any reason, you can at present take only one hypnotherapy training, AH training is without doubt the one to embrace.

I came to the hypnosis training as a six-year practicing hypnotherapist, having studied with well-known teachers in the field. I had hoped to fill in some blanks and gain some new insights. From the first day the training exceeded my expectations enormously. Alchemical hypnotherapy is the only system I have seen that shows you how to work step-by-step with a client through true healing of our deepest wounds.
Additionally, at the personal level I happened to come to the hypnosis training in the midst of a major life crisis. Because of that I thought I might get less out of the class, but hoped the personal healing would offset that. Again, I benefited far beyond my expectations. The warmth and professional support of the staff, especially Debbie and David, was fantastic. The personal support and understanding from other students was a healing in itself and that was only able to happen because we were in a safe and loving atmosphere.
I do not easily use the word transformational because it is sometimes used so carelessly that the meaning gets lost. Still I can say that for me, it was transformational, and the skills I acquired help me to preserve those transformations and continue to grow personally and professionally.
I wish every hypnotherapist could become an alchemist!

"Assisting You to Re-Create Your Life"
In all the years I have been involved in hypnotherapy and past life regression therapy I have taken many trainings, workshops and seminars from many teachers. None of them exceed the quality and value of teaching offered by David Quigley. He is right up there with the best teachers with whom I have ever studied. His easy style and demeanor make learning his Alchemical techniques exciting, fun and highly educational. They are so good that I have assisted at two of his full trainings and at numerous of his workshops so that I can learn more and more and grow more and more. I am very proud to call myself an Alchemical Hypnotherapist!

After practicing hypnotherapy for a year I began to realize that, although I had received excellent training from one of the well known schools in the Bay Area, I was not sufficiently prepared for dealing with the needs of all my clients, especially women who had experienced childhood trauma. I felt ineffectual in helping to alleviate the lingering pain and emotional turmoil from their unresolved childhood wounding.
I discovered in my Alchemy training, powerful techniques a hypnotherapist can use to facilitate the healing of childhood trauma. During the intense experiential parts of the training I underwent my own emotional clearing to heal my inner child and met some inner guides that have become essential to my ongoing growth. In addition I learned techniques to unify the divisive parts of the self that leave us confused and isolated. I was especially impressed with the alchemical approach to some of the more common issues such as addictions, phobias and weight. These methods are uniquely powerful in that they go deeper than other hypnosis strategies to heal the wound’s underlying addictive behaviors and phobic responses.
The training I received at the Institute has been invaluable to both my personal and professional growth. I am currently integrating it into my practice and returning to take advanced classes. I highly recommend this training for any hypnotherapist or psychotherapist who wants to take their practice to the next level.

My life has improved dramaticallyI met David Quigley shortly after I'd left my marriage of twenty years. I'd been only half-alive with a sense that something was missing in my life and I blamed my marriage partner for that emptiness. So I walked away from the security of that relationship in search of the missing piece. I thought that I just needed to find a new partner, one very different from the one I'd just left. Little did I know that what I was looking for was actually inside me! Alchemy helped me find my missing pieces and reclaim them as important parts of my whole self.
My first session with David Quigley was very powerful. I re-united with a valuable inner resource, my Inner Gypsy/Sorceress. This Gypsy had actually been my "imaginary playmate"...my best and closest friend from my childhood that I had lost connection to many years past. I was moved to tears and in that very first session I knew that not only would this work deeply and profoundly heal and transform my own psyche, I felt a calling to study the work in a way that would allow me to contribute to others. I enrolled immediately in the next training.
Then, immersing myself in Alchemy, I apprenticed and assisted David in teaching for the next five years while continuing to do my own process and build a private practice. I've since worked with hundreds of clients with issues ranging from cigarette addiction to sexual abuse to cancer and helped many to heal their lives in amazing ways. It has been a wondrous privilege to witness the most intimate dreams, visions and desires within each individual. The natural brilliance and genius of the subconscious mind in its instinct to heal is inspiring beyond words!

"I'm a graduate of an excellent hypnosis program in San Diego and have done lots of hypnosis courses. I was pleasantly surprised by the Alchemical Hypnotherapy program. I gained more skills in less time than any other hypnosis training I've attended. I now enjoy teaching Alchemical Hypnotherapy at the Alternative Health Center of San Diego, and have a busy private practice."
-- Berney Lincoln, San Diego, CA
"I condiser the Alchemical hypnosis training of David Quigley, to be the most advanced and enlightened training in hypnosis and spirituality that is available.Best wishes for your future success and may Alchemical Hypnosis soon take its place as the template on which all other Hypnosis courses are based.
"I took the alchemy hypnosis training after completing another course, but I didn't feel ready to practice until I finished the Alchemy Institute's course. The techniques are flexible enough to be applied to any client situation, and the learning is experiential and is absorbed on the cellular level. If you have already been trained but are still waiting for a successful practice, this is the training I recommend."
Aurora Hayes, Novato, CA
"I took two extensive hypnosis trainings prior to the alchemical course. They gave me a lot of tools but the didn't help me address the underlying causes of the issues I deal with every day. I was hungry for deep healing tools, not more "band-aids" for symptoms. This training, in contrast, left me fully prepared to deal with the core emotional issues that underlie my clients symptoms. In addition, it was far more professional, supportive, and thorough than any other hypnosis training I have done in hypnosis. I believe every hypnotherapist should take this program."
Susan Spiegel-Solovay, NY
As a certified graduate of a highly touted hypnosis school on the east coast, I found myself lacking the confidence to begin practicing professionally. Now, after the alchemy training, I am truly ready to practice. Unlike my previous training, this course gave me continuing one-to-one supervision for practice in class. In addition the alchemy institute teaches innovative healing methods using archetypal guides and dozens of other advanced techniques. There was almost four times as much material presented as in my earlier training.

Having studied with many schools of hypnotherapy all over the country, I have discovered that the alchemical techniques are the most direct, precise, and easy to perform that I have encountered. They produce excellent results. Much of my work is in conjunction with medical doctors and treatments.
I have one client who has conquered insomnia in three sessions. Another suffered cronic migranes for thirty years, and received one session and has now been free of headaches for two years. Another client suffered from lupus, a painful disease of the joints for which there is no medical cure, for twenty-five years. She has now been in remission and free of pain for a year, after only eleven sessions.
