Message from the Director of The Orca Institute
As the director and founder of Canada’s most enduring, and only PCTIA (BC Gov. Agency) Accredited hypnotherapy school I welcome you to The Orca Institute’s web site. Established in 1986 our school's program was conceived and developed in response to the desire of many practitioners to achieve a high standard of hypnotherapy practice. We offer Certificate and Diploma programs which are structured to accommodate our student’s busy schedules and lifestyles. Our courses are ongoing so can be started at any time.
Unique to our hypnotherapy Certification and Diploma programs, is the strong integration of Counselling and Ericksonian Skills. At the Orca Institute our intent is to bring students from a basic level of “just starting to get comfortable” with hypnosis to becoming confident, highly skilled, professional, "Counselling Hypnotherapists".
Our teachers have been chosen for their extensive knowledge, experience and for their ability to respond to the needs of every student while acknowledging that everyone learns differently. In addition to covering the works and methods of Milton Erickson, M.D., Stephen Gilligan, PhD. Serge King, PhD and others our training uniquely includes my own innovative approaches developed over 30 years. I invite you to learn more about this fascinating subject by exploring our web site and allowing me to share with you what The Orca Institute has to offer. Feel free to contact me toll-free in North America at 800-665-ORCA (6722). I always enjoy talking to prospective students.
