NGHTaylor Sherman


I’m a Certified Hypnotist (CH) and Certified Instructor of Hypnosis (CI) through the National Guild of Hypnotists, the oldest and largest hypnosis organization in the world. I’ve been a hypnotist for over 14 years now, and it’s great to help people to improve their lives.

My other credentials include being a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a Certified Trainer in NLP and Humanistic NLP, a Certified Trainer of Brain-Based Leadership and Training, and I hold a Specialty Certification in Advanced Regression Hypnotherapy. I have passed the National Guild of Hypnotist’s Board Certification Exam and Interview.

My professional affiliations from which I have achieved certified status include the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH), the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT), the Hypnosis Motivational Institute, the Society of Experiential Trance, the Atlantic Board of Hypnosis, the National Federation of NLP, the International Association of HNLP & Hypnosis, and the International Network of HNLP.

My journey in hypnosis has been a interesting one. I initially became curious in hypnosis through a friend who had already taken a hypnosis course. After learning the basics, we set out to hypnotize everyone we knew. We found volunteers who wanted to stop smoking, lose weight, or release stress from their life, and I quickly learned what worked and what didn’t.

These days my main interest has continued to be “clinical-style hypnosis,” which is helping people to improve their lives. In case you’re curious, some of my accomplishments in the world of hypnosis are as follows:
APPEARANCES: I have written many blog posts and articles for the Tranced Out Hypnosis Blog, as well as having been featured many times on the Whats On My Brain Hypnosis Training Blog (The most popular hypnosis blog in the world). I’ve been featured on Blog Talk Radio, on 105.9 The Edge Radio, and have been interviewed by the Keys to the Mind group with Nathan Thomas, Master Hypnotist.
THE HYPNOSIS CLUB: When I was in college, I started the largest hypnosis meet up group in the area, where we quickly brought beginners up to speed and had them teach others the skills they had learned. I am now a regular presenter at local hypnosis meet up groups.
TRAINING: I train other hypnotists in the many uses of hypnosis. I am a Certified Instructor of Hypnosis (CI) for the National Guild of Hypnotists (the oldest, largest, and most recognized hypnotism organization in the world), certified by Dr. Richard Harte, a Psychologist. I was also personally certified as an instructor for the Society of Experiential Trance by Dr. Brian David Phillips, a College Professor in Taiwan.
PRODUCTS: My business partner Joshua Houghton and I created The World’s First Training Course for Instant Inductions, which is how we instantly relax a person into a very deep state of hypnosis. Subsequent to that product, Josh and I released a renowned hypnosis troubleshooting manual, and I developed the Language Patterns Quickstart DVD.
SPORTS HYPNOSIS: I work with talented athletes and competitors to achieve peak performance in their sports. I am a certified Golf Specialist through the National Guild of Hypnotists. Among the sports I have worked with include: Baseball, Soccer, Golf, Gymnastics, Basketball, Competitive Weightlifting, Track and Field, Clay Target Shooting, and Tennis.
MENTORING: I offer mentoring services to youths interested in hypnosis through my community, and have served as a Community Mentor for the International Association of Youth Hypnotists.
COMMUNITY: I’m the co-founder of FreeHypnosisCommunity.com, one of the top social networks of it’s kind on the web.
