About Us

Boulder Hypnotherapy Institute offers the premier online hypnotherapy training and certification course for psychotherapists, mental health counselors, coaches, and medical professionals.

Our Mission

We are a hypnosis and hypnotherapy education and training organization committed to elevating the world’s consciousness. As a hypnotherapy think tank, we are continually pushing the bounds of healing and transformation as we co-create the future of hypnotherapy with our highly-skilled community members. We achieve this through our 3-tier approach to transformation, consciousness, and healing.

Our Vision

Our vision is to revolutionize the mental health industry by making hypnotherapy accessible and affordable.

Our Philosophy

During the last 30 years, we have witnessed a historical first: all of the world’s cultures are now available to us.

Knowledge itself is now global. This means that, for the first time, the sum total of human knowledge is available to us—the knowledge, experience, wisdom, and reflection of all major human civilizations—premodern, modern, and postmodern—are open to study by anyone.

What if we took literally everything that all the various cultures have to tell us about human potential—about spiritual growthpsychological growthsocial growth—and put it all on the table?

What if we attempted to find the critically essential keys to human growth, based on the sum total of human knowledge now open to us?

What if we attempted, based on extensive cross-cultural study, to use all of the world’s great traditions to create a composite map, a comprehensive map, an all-inclusive or integral map that included the best elements from all of them?

This map uses all the known systems and models of human growth—from the ancient shamans and sages to today’s breakthroughs in cognitive science—and distills their major components into 5 simple factors, factors that are the essential elements or keys to unlocking and facilitating human evolution.

We took this integral map of consciousness and applied it to the field of hypnotherapy itself.

Welcome to Meta Hypnotherapy.

During this 5-day hypnotherapy training and certification course, you’ll learn the five essential keys to unlocking and facilitating your own human evolution and those that you serve.

Not only that, but you’ll also learn how to apply Meta Hypnotherapy to every aspect of your life— from work to relationships, spiritual practice to health and well-being.

We are the only hypnotherapy training and certification course that teaches you the most comprehensive map of human consciousness available. Without an excellent map, it’s easy to get lost in the territory of the mind. We teach you both the map and how to navigate the territory of consciousness itself for optimal healing of self, society, and Spirit.

Come build tomorrow with us!

Founder & Clinical Director

Kelly Bearer, MA, ACHT

I’m an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Transpersonal Psychotherapist, and the Founder and Clinical Director of the Boulder Hypnotherapy Institute. A graduate of Naropa University with an M.A. in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology, I have more than 20 years of experience in the counseling field. My methodology includes Meta Hypnotherapy, Integral Theory, Transpersonal Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Subtle Energy, and Holistic Integrative healing techniques.

I am a published author in the Journal for Integral Theory and Practice. My article titled, “Toward an Integral Treatment Methodology for Schizophrenia”, was adapted from my Naropa University thesis research.

An ordained Zen Monk, my interests lie in exploring the intersection of spirituality and psychology, the ground where our healing journey begins.

Backed By Science

In a scientific study, hypnotherapy showed to have a 93% success rate after 6 sessions as compared to behavior therapy which showed to have a 72% success rate after 22 sessions, and psychoanalysis which showed to have a 38% success rate after 600 sessions.
