You’re a healthcare worker and a healer – but tired of being overworked and underpaid.

As a nurse, caregiver or counselor, you have a big heart for helping people – that’s why you got into this field in the first place. (Not a healthcare worker, but serious about helping others? Please keep reading!)

But the shift work and being on call are exhausting.

You work hard to provide the care people need, but you’re burnt out and barely making ends meet.

And we haven’t even talked about the time you’re spending away from your family during those 12-hour shifts.

You’re looking for a way to transition your health care career into something that provides additional income (on your terms) and more time to spend with those you love…but you don’t have months or tens of thousands of dollars to spend on retraining and finding a new job.

Besides, you really love helping people.

Maybe Certification in Hypnosis is an option for you.

“I’ve been fascinated with hypnosis for years and I was happy to find Penny’s course. Penny is an exceptional teacher. She is extraordinarily well prepared and has a gift for explaining the subtleties of hypnosis. Her commitment to the profession is evidenced in everything she does. I give my unreserved kudos to Penny and I am looking forward to putting my newly acquired skills to use.” ~John Zehr~


Forget about all the crazy stage and TV antics you’ve seen.

Hypnosis is a credible, certified field gaining momentum in healthcare.

Backed by thousands of evidence-based studies, hypnosis addresses a range of healthcare problems:

  • pain management
  • smoking cessation
  • stress reduction
  • improved sleep
  • weight loss.

As a Certified Consulting Hypnotist, you’ll add new techniques and skills to your existing counseling or healthcare practice to help your clients see results. You’ll build and grow your existing skill set- and your income, too.

Or, you can take the route I did and open your own hypnosis practice, either as a side-hustle to supplement your day job, or as your new full-time business.

After 3 years as an anesthetist in the OR, I discovered hypnosis and saw how it helped patients manage – or eliminate – their pain.

In 2013 I trained as a Consulting Hypnotist by the American School of Clinical Hypnosis and later went on to become board certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists and certified in 5-PATH® and 7-Path© Self Hypnosis.

Helping people through hypnosis is very rewarding – both personally and financially.

Within 18 months I scaled back my anesthesia shifts from 40 hours a week to 20 hours a week.

Besides, given all the cuts to our healthcare system, I felt like I couldn’t provide the best care – or be my best self – to my patients. As a hypnotist, I can provide exceptional care to my clients and it makes a remarkable difference to their lives.

I believe in it so strongly that I became a 5-PATH® and 7-Path© Hypnosis Teacher and a Certified Professional Hypnosis Instructor in 2017.

Hypnosis changed my life. And I think it can change yours too.

Before Hypnosis Training

  • You’re taking extra shifts – even when you’ve already worked your quota because you need the extra cash.
  • You’re staying later during your shifts – because you care too much to leave your patients when the other nurse calls in sick or no-shows her shift.
  • Night shift work is exhausting – you work all night so you can be home for your family during the day. You can’t keep this up.
  • You’re sick and tired of not being appreciated for your work – health care professionals are always undervalued and underpaid. The healthcare field continues to see budget cuts that leave professionals and patients compromised.
  • You’re living paycheck to paycheck – when will you get off this roller coaster and treat your kids or your husband to that dream vacation, or start saving for college or retirement?
  • You are overstretched and burnt out – between caring for your patients and your family, there’s no extra time for you.

After Hypnosis Training

  • You don’t feel obligated to take extra shifts – You can choose to have extra money coming in from your new hypnosis business.
  • You’ve scaled back your day job to part time – your practice is growing – your clients are seeing results and referring new business to you.
  • No more money stress. You’re finally making good money – like $175/hour good money. Yes, really.
  • You’re more relaxed and calm – you spend less time working, so you can spend more time doing things you enjoy with the special people in your life. For me it’s drinking a southern iced tea overlooking the pool with my husband.
  • You’re in control – You are the boss. You set your hours and your schedule. No more trading shifts. You now have complete freedom in your career.
  • You’re helping people – whatever is ailing them, you have a toolbox of solutions and you’re seeing results. It’s incredibly fulfilling.
  • Your dream life? It’s here – More balance. More time. More healing… and, yes… more income.


“Thank you for sending out your two videos and the “cheat sheet.” It was great to see you and to hear you speak about the work. You’re a natural – I’m sure your clients feel very comfortable with you – I’d train with you or do hypnosis with you in a heartbeat. In addition, the cheat sheet is well thought out and will prove to be very helpful. :)” Barb

Isn’t hypnotism just voodoo and stage antics?

Hey, I get the skepticism. If you’d told me 15 years ago when I was working full-time as a Nurse Anesthetist that I’d run a thriving hypnosis practice and hypnosis training program, I would have laughed and said you were CRAZY! As a Registered Nurse I’m trained to be logical and methodical and rely on evidence.

In 2005, I worked at Backus Hospital in Norwich Connecticut that offered complimentary therapies to their patients. I saw these patients would use less anesthesia and would recover quicker than those who didn’t use mind-body techniques.

In 2008, I created a Pain Management continuing education course for Registered Nurses and included a section on hypnosis. As I dug into the theory, the evidence-based studies and practice, I became convinced of its efficacy in pain management. I took my first hypnosis training in 2013, and I haven’t looked back. Each day, I see how hypnosis can complement traditional medicine and how effective it is as a stand-alone field of practice helping people with every day habits they want to break.

Can I really run a business doing this? What does a hypnotist charge? 

Professional Hypnotism is gaining momentum in the healthcare field. People are looking for complementary therapies to help them with their ailments and problems.

In the first 18 months of opening my first hypnosis practice in Portland, Connecticut in fall 2013 I was able to cut my nursing hours in half because of the income I was bringing in through my hypnosis practice. Initially it was not my plan to leave anesthesia. But it is awesome when  you can work in the hospital because you WANT to and not because you HAVE to. 

A certified 5-PATH© hypnotist can charge $150-$200 per session.

Depending on the client’s needs, the number of sessions range:- smoking cessation –2 – 5 sessions- stress or sleep issues – 4 – 6 sessions- pain management –4 – 11 sessions

But I want to be clear, this isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. If you choose to use the skills to start a practice, just like any entrepreneurial venture, you’ll only grow a business and clientele if you invest your time and resources into it. I started my practice to stay sharp on my skills and planned hypnosis as my retirement career. I never dreamed it would grow so quickly!

You can grow a thriving business, as I have. And for me, it’s not just the freedom being your own boss provides.

It’s the transformation you can create in people’s lives. That’s what’s most rewarding.

“Hypnotherapy is a big market and the time is right with all the pressure to avoid opioids!” Roberta F.

Where is the course offered? What about hotels and meals?

In 2019, this 10-day course will be offered twice, April 1-12 and September 9-20 (Saturday and Sunday off) at our office, Genesis Hypnosis, 232 Market Street, Flowood, MS, located just 10 minutes from the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport.

There are several hotels, restaurants and a grocery store in walking distance. There  is a Candlewood, Hilton and Comfort Inn Suites across the highway, that includes a full mini-kitchen in each room to save on eating out.

Do you have a money-back guarantee?

Yep.  If you show up to class and are not satisfied you can turn your ALL materials in by NOON on the FIRST day and receive the tuition you paid minus $250 administrative fees. 

Who should take this 10-day Basic and Advanced Hypnotsis program?

First let me be clear: this program is not for someone who wants an entertainment or stage show training.

This is for serious healthcare providers and professional healers like nurses, counselors and caregivers.

Because I am one, I think this course is great for nurses. If you’ve reached the point where you’re getting burnt out but you still want to make a difference in people’s lives, this is a great career for you.

You can completely change the trajectory of your profession in as little as 10 days and with a modest investment – and yet still use all your practical knowledge and skills from the healthcare field.

How is the 5-PATH & 7th PATH program different than other hypnosis training programs?

This 100-hour course, created by Cal Banyan, is much more than a basic hypnotist course. In addition to  becoming a Certified Consulting Hypnotist, you receive Master Hypnotist certification, 5-PATH® practitioner and 7th Path™ Self Hypnosis teacher advanced certifications.

The depth of understanding in this 100-hour course and the confidence you will receive is incredible. The 100-hour course goes above and beyond to build your confidence and give you the tools and practice to immediately launch a business and begin seeing clients.

Not only that, you receive access to the BEST post-graduation support available: private member email support group, individual email support, 5-Path.com members only website, and the 5-PATH® quarterly journal​.

This level of ongoing support and community is world-class and not available with any other program.

Still have questions and want to learn more about me? Give me a call and I’ll send you a link to an interview about my journey into hypnosis and how it has changed my life.

 Hi there, I’m Penny Chiasson – the owner of Genesis Hypnosis and the instructor of this 100-hour Advanced Hypnosis Certification Course.

I’m a Board-Certified Hypnotist with a background in nursing, Nurse Anesthesia and pain management hypnosis. I’m a 5-PATH® Certified Hypnotist, 7th Path® teacher and a Certified Professional Hypnosis Instructor (CPHI).

If you’re like me, you chose to work in health care because you have a desire to help and heal people.

But after years of shift-work and cutbacks, you’re burnt out (I know I was). You’re looking for a way to change your life and secure your family’s future.

In 2013, when I launched Genesis Hypnosis in Portland, Connecticut, I was surprised by how quickly I grew a clientele and a profitable business. In 18 months I was able to cut my nursing hours by half due to the increased income from my hypnosis practice. 

In 2015, I moved from Portland, Connecticut back to Mississippi onto my family farm. I wanted to enjoy a more laid-back lifestyle.

Let me tell you, I have been surprised by how quickly I’ve grown my clientele in my new location. In fact, in 6 months I can hardly keep up with my growing number of clients, already cutting my hours at the hospital.

I’d love to send you a 28-minute audio recording of how I became a certified hypnotist and how it’s changed my life.

It’s my personal mission to help my clients achieve their goals and break free of emotional and physical discomfort, bad habits and self-limiting behaviors.

It’s also my mission to train quality hypnotists in advanced techniques so that together we can reach more people and help them achieve their goals. I am NOT here to train you and take your money. I am here to train, mentor and facilitate your SUCCESS as a confident, exceptional hypnotist.

If you train with me and Genesis Hypnosis, your training does not end on graduation day. Ongoing support is provided by me and my office as well as from the community of support provided to all 5-PATH© graduates.

If you’re ready to learn new tools – and apply your new gifts to helping people in your community – I’m here to serve and support you.

If you’re ready to believe in yourself and implement what you learn,  you can help others achieve transformational change in their lives.When you do that, you’re not only helping your client, you’re helping your client’s family and community.You’re impacting thousands of lives.
