Linda Thunberg,
NATH President & CEO

Classes taught by NATH CEO Linda Thunberg, MHt, LBLt, CCP, and are unique in many ways. She has updated and expanded the original content of Dr. Allen Chips’ courses into a unique visual presentation to go along with lecture and manual, all supported by her years of experience and ever growing practical experience as a hypnotherapist.

Many case studies are discussed in length, and the experientials are observed and supported by Linda and qualified assistants. The models exclusively taught in the NATH MHt course peel the onion of emotions for clients with ease and grace, changing perspectives and patterns permanently.

She also teaches the CHt and MHt consecutively so students have the opportunity to receive their Master’s instruction and experientials right after their CHt certification and immerse themselves in hypnotherapy for the 10 day intensive.

Linda has awesome guest teachers, trainers in training, and qualified assistants occasionally co-teaching parts of the class with her.  Master Transpersonal Hypnotherapist, Certified Trainer, Life Coach, and Cayce student Linda Thunberg MHt, who was trained by Dr. Allen Chips and Delores Cannon, will guide you through an immersive, experiential training in transpersonal hypnotherapy for healing spirit, mind, and body and for accessing past lives through regression.

“The skills and personal growth that I received through Linda Thunberg to become a certified hypnotherapist far exceeded my expectations. The learning environment was a small group setting, which allowed for a lot of interaction, individual attention, numerous demonstrations and opportunities to practice. This experience gave me the confidence to move forward in this profession and to begin helping others. I highly recommend this hypnotherapy certification program to anyone with an interest in this field or who want to expand their career.”     – Jenny Whitaker, CHt
