Gil Boyne, you have single-handedly created a new profession in America;
WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL GIL BOYNE WEBSITE
Milton Erickson is known for helping to popularize the use of hypnosis to reach the subconscious in psychiatry. He was particularly known for his ability to quickly assess the needs of the client and work effectively with the client's map of reality using his individualistic approach to therapy.
Dave Elman had no formal training in medicine or psychology, yet he taught Hypnotherapy to more physicians, dentists, anesthesiologists, and psychiatrists than any other instructor in modern times.
Gil Boyne has made numerous original contributions to the contemporary practice of Hypnotherapy. He has brought to the counseling professions an awareness of the inner wisdom of the human psyche. His system. known as Transforming Therapy, teaches that the inner creative mind not only knows all the questions but knows all of the answers as well. There are many practitioners who feel that Boyne's greatest achievement has been the thousands of Hypnotherapists in many countries who began their career by training in his courses. His is considered by many to be one of the top three Hypnotherapists of the last 50 years who have contributed most to the worldwide practice of high-quality, "non-licensed" contemporary Hypnotherapy.
About Gil Boyne, from Recognised Leaders and Experts in the Hypnotherapy Profession...
Thoughts and Feelings about Gil Boyne
As an individual who is passionate about a life purpose of coaching individual and community development, I have immersed myself in the teaching of masters in this field.
Words cannot describe the gratitude I feel toward Gil Boyne. Approximately 20 years ago I attended his classes in hypnosis/ hypnotherapy. Without a doubt, studying with Gil Boyne was a true turning point in my life. His knowledge, ability and ease of style are incomparable. He is indeed the Teacher of Masters and the Master of Teachers. Most of the best known and successful workers in our field started with Gil Boyne. The investment that I made in his courses has come back to me in millions of dollars. For anyone looking to build a solid foundation in hypnosis/ hypnotherapy, make the pilgrimage and study with Gil. You will thank yourself for the rest of your life.
A NEW APPROACH TO HYPNOTHERAPY
His hypnotherapy training and instruction has provided thousands of students with the essential knowledge and skills required for success as as contemporary clinical hypnotherapists. I am personally grateful to Gil Boyne, for his training and continuing mentoring. His instruction and his advice on developing a practice and marketing my services helped me to become a highly effective practicioner. I feel that every serious student and practicioner of hypnotherapy should have the opportunity to study with Gil Boyne, the creator of modern Hypnotherapy.
Nearly half a century ago Gil Boyne began molding the field of hypnotherapy into something much greater than it had ever been. He learned from early pioneers in hypnotherapy including Elman, and trained with Fritz Perls, developer of Gestalt Therapy, as well as pioneers of other forms of therapy. His brilliance goes far beyond his early instinctive recognition and integration of many of the most profound insights in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. What has emerged is the incredible speed and effectiveness of his "Transforming Therapy."
I was fortunate to take Gil Boyne's hypnotherapy training in 1968. As I developed my practice, he was exceptionally generous with his guidance and wisdom. After ten years of a practice, I founded one of the first state-licensed hypnotherapy schools in 1978. My therapy and teaching is strongly influenced by Gil Boyne, as are my books, Become the Dream and Regression Hypnotherapy. His live therapy films are an important part of an advanced level of my classes and I am grateful for his mentoring over the years.
Gil Boyne is one of a few in history to have had a profound impact on the field of hypnotherapy. I urge all hypnotherapists who have not yet studied and trained directly with Gil Boyne to seize the opportunity to attend his courses and experience a great teacher and leader who has so powerfully affected the world of contemporary hypnotherapy.
Gil Boyne is a Premier Therapist and a Teacher's Teacher, who. also trained more hypnotherapists in America than any other teacher to date. I received my early training with Gil when I was a graduate student, and vividly remember the demonstrations at his Hypnotherapy Institute in Los Angeles.
Gil resurrected and republished the lost work of Dave Elman to share with the rest of the world. Charles Tebbetts was a 72 yr. old sign painter when he went to Gil to overcome insomnia. Charles went on to train with Gil, then to work for him and eventually became widely known for his Training Institute in Seattle and for his books on hypnosis.
Throughout the USA as well as in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei and Tokyo many physicians and therapists remember him as the man who introduced them to the world of hypnotherapy. You may train with other teachers, but Gil is the one you will remember most.
Gil Boyne's Master Course in Clinical Hypnotherapy has been a memorable experience. Boyne, who has become a a living legend in the hypnotherapy world, takes his students on a journey of true emotional and spiritual transformation in just six weekends. Gil is the only therapist who has videotaped a comprehensive library of his successful hypnotherapy sessions and follow-up interviews. The videos are shown to students on a giant screen and interspersed with Gil's insightful commentary. Gil's unique "Transforming Therapy," shows its potency in liberating clients from a wide range of emotional traumas and physical ailments. I have trained in many forms of counseling and therapy, yet I found this course especially worthwhile. Gil's personal magnetism and belief in Ã¢â‚¬Å“Transforming Therapy" is worth far more than all the gimmicks, techniques, and theories of hypnosis which abound. The videotapes, sets of audiotapes, books and manuals given as class materials made this course an incredible value. This is one training course that I can recommend with absolute confidence.

His brilliance continues to be felt globally through his personal work and the work of his many gifted students."
