IACT Certifed Master Trainer, Mark V. Johnson, CCH, CMT
Second Generation Hypnotherapist
Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist
Hypnosis was a normal part of growing up for Mark and from an early age he developed an interest in both music and hypnosis, and made the decision to pursue a career in music. His father had incorporated hypnosis into his medical practice in the late 1950’s, eventually delivering over 1500 babies using hypnosis for pain control during delivery. While growing up, Mark was excited to have the opportunity to observe and participate in a variety of hypnosis sessions with his father in their home. These sessions involved habit control, stress reduction, stage hypnosis as well as regression.
The decision to pursue a career in music, lead Mark to study music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and North Texas State in Denton, TX. While finishing his Master of Music degree in Denton, Texas , where he used hypnosis for test anxiety, Mark became interested in what would eventually become his second career, computer programming. After 12 years of teaching piano classes, he made the transition to programming. Although he did not realize it at the time, both of these experiences were setting the stage for what would come next in his life, Hypnosis.
The mind has been compared to a computer, a very powerful computer. Many of our habits, activities and actions we do everyday without thinking about them are based on programs that are stored in the subconscious mind. Some of these programs are good, like the one that tells your heart to beat and the one that tells you to continue breathing. These autonomic “programs” reside in the subconscious mind as do other habits which may affect you in a negative way.
Using hypnosis to help others involves the process of teaching people how to make permanent changes in their life by making changes to the programming in the subconscious mind. After a successful career as a music teacher and a second career as a computer programmer, Mark has been able to integrate his knowledge of hypnosis with his experiences as a teacher and a programmer to discover the secret to helping people change their minds, and change their lives with hypnosis!
The study of hypnosis is a never ending process that includes both training and practical experience working with a variety of issues. After completing his initial 500 hour training with Bette Epstein and several certification exams, Mark was awarded the Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist certification from the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners. Over the years his studies have taken him from coast to coast as he has studied with the top trainers in the field including, Gil Boyne, Ormond McGill, Michael Newton, Paul Aurand, George Bien, Dick Sutphen and Dolores Cannon, among others.
