Transformational at a core level.
I have had breakthroughs in class that have been transformational at a core level. I have been guarded my entire life and always on "alert," but because of the work I have done in this class, I have found Freedom! Peace! and Joy! Thank you to Erika, Tim, and all the hypnotists who worked with us this week for providing a "safe" space to allow me to work on my issues, which in turn will allow me to be a better hypnotherapist and help people!.
- William M. Schuhlein, BS
The most valuable course of any type I have ever taken
Hands down (or up!), this is the most valuable course of any type I have ever taken. Not only have I gained the skills required to be a compassionate, competent hypnotist, this course allowed me to experience unexpected, significant personal breakthroughs on deep issues. Erika Flint, our teacher/mentor, is an amazing empathetic, focused, fearless practitioner who transmits her love of hypnosis and service with every word she speaks.
- Diana Shinn, BA, MS
This class was transformative in many ways.
What an experience! This class was transformative in many ways. I feel like I have a strong foundation to start my hypnosis practice upon, plenty of good resources to move forward with, and a community of professionals to consult with. More importantly though, I have developed a deeper connection with my inner voice, a clearer understanding of myself, and a deep sense of my purpose. Thank you Erika and Tim for hosting such a well organized, comprehensive course! I will never forget it.
- Allison McCormick
Fun and yet deep way of teaching that reaches down into your heart and up to your soul.
I can not express how amazing this class is! I came upon it in a time in my life when I had nothing beneath my feet. I had dumped my life and hit the road with my dog. When I had a moment to breathe, this course showed up! It spoke to me, I reached out, and signed up so fast! I have a lot of social anxiety, public speaking, etc… but this class was safe and secure. Erika is an amazing instructor with fun and yet deep way of teaching that reaches down into your heart and up to your soul with her canny guidance. She really cares, therefore we care. With Tim’s help, the class ran smoothly - very fluid, congruent. There were scary times, times of laughter. We all created an amazing bond, a family. I feel that I am leaving with amazing skills and understanding not only to help others, but to really help myself…what an amazing gift.
- Terri Miller
If you’re considering becoming a hypnotist, do this program!
The skills I learned in this course are going to transform my health coaching business. I can’t wait to share this with my clients and see them get the results they want faster and more effectively than ever.For me personally, the course was truly transformative. I had some mind-blowing insights and connected on a deep level with my classmates. I have no doubt we will all remain friends for years to come. Erika is a dynamic, heart-centered teacher. Her compassion, excitement and commitment to her clients and students just bursts out of her. So inspiring! Tim was more than support. His help before class began and his technical expertise during class helped things run so smoothly. More than that, I found his feedback during practice sessions invaluable. The 5-PATH program is so well put together to maximize client success with their issues. I couldn’t be more impressed. If you’re considering becoming a hypnotist, do this program! Erika brings it to life and supports you as you start practicing. So fabulous!
- Stephanie Petersen, MS, LMT
The class felt like I had found HOME!!!
I was pleasantly SURPRISED!! that the class was full of compassionate people. It was a very safe space to share insights and feelings - all of us cried at some point. Erika does a great job(!!) of being sincere and inviting as well as sprinkling a sense of humor in. Even when you feel unsure or clumsy, both Tim and Erika are nurturing and encourage you that you will get it. It helped me get personal insights on my relationships, but also the class felt like I had found HOME!!!.
- Chantil Benjamin
She taught us how to get the results that our clients have been longing for.
This training experience was personally and professionally profound for me as a human. Erika is an exceptionally gifted teacher with a huge heart, boundless energy, and and a deep well of knowledge about the beautiful work that hypnosis provides for people who have tried everything. She taught us how to get the results that our clients have been longing for. As a sexologist and sex/relationship coach who works with couples and individuals who want to connect intimately and authentically with themselves and with a partner, I can't wait to provide transformational 5-PATH hypnosis to my clients. I know it will change their lives in so many significant ways. Thank you for the fantastic experience. 5 stars. Highly recommend.
- Jane Guyn, PhD
Feel I'm in the best of hands.
In short, the training was superb, Erika is a highly gifted teacher (one of the best in my experience), Tim made everything impeccable and seamless, my classmates were amazing, and I'm SO grateful to have stumbled upon this opportunity. For anyone considering signing up with Cascade, just check their reviews (which speak for themselves). IMO you can't go wrong. My journey has just begun as I'm doing the implementation portion as well and feel I'm in the best of hands. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
- M. Marchant
I feel so full of knowledge
I’m not sure there are enough words in the universe to express how incredible Erika Flint is, Tim Freeman, and this whole program as a whole. I feel so full of knowledge and confident moving forward as a hypnotist. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating such a powerful and life-changing method to help others improve their life. I feel so much personal and professional growth, and I can’t wait to get started.
- Kelsey Staub, LCMHC, ATR-P, CH
The educational materials are extensive and thorough.
This course is for anyone who is interested in becoming a hypnotist in an immersion style environment. The educational materials are extensive and thorough. The class was comfortable and supportive. Erika and Tim are a wonderful team, demonstrating a close working relationship and respect for each other. They inspired with their dedication and genuine love of their profession.
- Camille Tillinghast
The hands on design was was some of the best implementation I have seen
The design of the class pre-work was a good opportunity to get a lot of work done and be prepared for the hands on portion. The hands on design was was some of the best implementation I have seen in many years of professional training and continuing education. So often courses are just pay and get a certificate and as a practicing professional that makes me a skeptic. I am very impressed with the system, the technique, and the trainers - and most importantly the practice requirements.
- Chanelle Lobo, MSW, RSW
I’m so excited to share my ongoing knowledge out into our world
Thank you Erika and Tim for giving me an outstanding hypnosis training class. Your class expanded my brain 100x! :) I’m in need of a change in my life, and the universe sent me to your class to not only help me but many, many others! I’m so excited to share my ongoing knowledge out into our world in a positive healing energy practice. I look forward to our ongoing relationship in hypnosis and happiness! Thank you again - much love and hugs!
- Judy Lovelett
I would rank the class 5 out of 5
Erika and Tim are awesome. Very organized. Very prompt. Responsive, upbeat, and knowledgeable. I would rank the class 5 out of 5, which is unusual for me.This class proved and validated the concept of and effort of hypnotism to me. I had several qualifying thoughts about whether hypnosis is real. In this class, Erika was patient and direct in answering my “brain” questions. Thank you.
- Aaron Mackley
Passion and years of experience were clearly transmitted to class
It is clear that Erika and Tim are passionate about the benefits their clients obtain from Cascade Hypnosis. That passion and years of experience were clearly transmitted to class. Always having a focus on the client motivated me to learn and practice all week. Feedback was positive and immediate and allowed for continued improvement and confidence building. Time was spent on the critical skills and having the follow up support provides for quick entry into client acquisition. Erika is clearly a continuous learner, and Tim is the ultimate knowledgeable supporter. Thanks to you both.
- Chanelle Lobo, MSW, RSW
I am so full of information
Erika and Tim are phenomenal. They have been so supportive, encouraging, and kind. I am so full of information, and overwhelmed, but excited to go home and unpack it all. I am excited that we have the support when it is unpacked to be successful. I can’t recommend these two and this course enough. Thank you.
- Sally Galore
I learned about a wonderful way to help myself and others to begin to live our best lives!
Erika Flint is a consummate professional, learned, and engaging! In this course, I learned about a wonderful way to help myself and others to begin to live our best lives! Thank you so much.
- Darlene Lerch, RN, MHP
I loved everything about the class
I loved everything about the class. Erika and Tim were absolutely amazing. The passion, dedication and integrity is clear! I loved learning from Erika and felt well supported by Tim as an online student. I enjoyed the [case study videos]; those were extremely helpful to see the process and to watch…transformation happen right before our eyes!
- Chanelle Lobo, MSW, RSW
Such a great course! Before the course I wasn't sure if I would be able to hypnotize clients and if I'm being honest I was even a little unsure it would work for me even though I have worked with a hypnotist before. Erika has great energy and quickly I realized in the course that this is the real deal! Erika and Tim are professional but also fun and relatable. They are extremely knowledgeable and explain the science behind hypnosis. Now that I have graduated from their program I feel very confident about adding hypnosis to my coaching practice. Thanks Cascade!
The work I got to do with practice partners made me a better person and hypnotist
Thank you for such a wonderful job and for the information on the 7th Path and 5-PATH rapid induction. The work I got to do with practice partners made me a better person and hypnotist. So thank you very much.
- Randy Thyfault
Erika will help get you there
I took the training with Erika and I have to say the big win for me is what goes on as soon as you graduate. Erika will hold your hand as much and for however long you want her to. Learning hypnosis is only half the battle. Now you need to apply that knowledge to actually go out and make the impact on the world that inspired this career path in the first place. Erika will help get you there. Being the change you want to see starts here.
- Dana Atwood
I felt really supported throughout this training program
I felt really supported throughout this training program. The professional hypnotist instructor clearly embodies the work and effectively teaches both hypnotism and business building. I loved the focus on emotions, which are the most important piece of the puzzle. Other Hypnosis trainings I took did not take the time to map out basic emotions the way we need to. Erika is the reason I took this class as well, because I appreciate her big energy and professionalism. She knows what she's talking about. And I want to know what I'm talking about.
- Erin Traylor, BS
I absolutely enjoyed this training all the way to the end. Erika has a profound energy that is inviting and calming at the same time. Her genuine compassion explodes beautifully throughout this course, with wisdom of hypnosis. The education was very thought out and executed brilliantly. I enjoyed the 7th Path Self- Hypnosis component on a spiritual level that I chose to do. Bravo!
- Kylan R. Skinner LMT, BCTMB
This is a professional course led by an excellent instructor
I appreciated many things the Hypnosis Certification course offered including the comprehensive education provided by Erika on hypnosis and how the mind works. I found the course to be both intense and fascinating. Completing the certification and being able to immediately begin confidently working with clients is a huge benefit. You finish with the education/tools needed to set up your business, and connections with other experienced Hypnotists to collaborate with. This is a professional course led by an excellent instructor (with deep expertise) - thank you, Erika!
- Cheri Fogel
The process is deeply grounded in psychological principles
I came to this training with many questions about how effective hypnosis can be with psychotherapy clients, and I left absolutely convinced that for people with everyday challenges, the process is deeply grounded in psychological principles and that it will be fast, effective, and create truly long-term change for my clients. Erika is an inspired instructor with rich, deep knowledge and a heartfelt desire to help. I would recommend this program to anyone who is serious about hypnosis and who wants the very best training available.
- Sheila Wenger, M.Ed
I now feel ready to hit the ground running!
I have never been so engaged with learning something new, either online, or in person, as I have with the Cascade Hypnosis Center's presentation with learning the 5-PATH hypnosis course. Erika, Tim, and everyone at Cascade have been amazing, I have enjoyed these past 7 days immensely, the time has flown by. I now feel ready to hit the ground running!!!
- Leanne Hammond
So much attention is paid towards each student
If every life choice I have ever made led me to Cascade Hypnosis Center, then I am forever appreciate of my every right and left turn. Erika Flint’s comprehensive approach and contagious passion, all offered in a professional setting, levels up hypnosis on every level, and Tim beautifully stays in his flow as the two of them effectively implement the powerful curriculum. So much attention is paid towards each student with compassion and validation – this whole training will always be my beautiful springboard into my hypnosis career.
- Elizabeth (Liz) Landon, BA, M.Ed
I am feeling motivated, inspired, confident, creative and ready to rise
This course was comprehensive, holistic, advanced, and applicable. Pre-work completely built a foundation for success in person. In person content, practice, and study was integrated and implemented through practice sessions. The instructor was thorough, clear, and radiant with contagious enthusiasm. In completion of this professional course, I am feeling motivated, inspired, confident, creative and ready to rise into this facilitation of healing for all!
- Ali McWeeny, BS, MS
I would like to say that Erika Flint is, hands down, the most amazing instructor I’ve ever worked with. Her personal alignment, attention to detail and explaining nuanced material was simply amazing. I feel comfortable and confident moving to work with clients ASAP.

13/10 best ever

- Stephanie Francioli
I am truly amazed
Erika is a really thorough instructor. I am truly amazed at how much we confidently achieved in seven days. It was a terrific experience.
- Marianne Brown, MST
I love you Cascade Hypnosis
This is hands down one of the most professional, exciting, and inspirational training courses I have ever taken. The amount of material we covered in just a week is super impressive... I do understand the practicality of the setup and the pre-course work still set me up for success. I love you Cascade Hypnosis.
- David Hutton, BA
This course trained me for a profession that far exceeded my expectations.
This course covers a large amount of information, but it is well formatted and progresses in a comprehensive way. Over the days in class skills build naturally with the integrated practice exercises, and confidence is achieved by the end of the course. Erika is extremely knowledgeable and imparts that knowledge in an engaging style that keeps the student focused. This course trained me for a profession that far exceeded my expectations.
- Melissa Canning
I’m seeing someone on Monday and I feel prepared.
So happy I took this course. I’m seeing someone on Monday and I feel prepared. It was especially helpful to have the practice sessions, and I would love to do more. I brought a concern I had to Erika and she handled it well. It really helped me to feel at ease for the rest of the course and attests to Erika doing personal work herself because many high performing authority figures do not always handle student concerns well.
- John Glinsman M.A.
Great experience, thank you!
Erika Flint was wonderful. The course material and instruction was easy to comprehend. Erika is really energetic and passionate about hypnosis. She really cares about teaching us and makes sure that all our questions get answered. The Cascade Hypnosis Center has a beautiful group of people that went above and beyond to help us in this amazing journey. Thank you all! Great experience, thank you!!!
- Karla Aguilera
Her encouragement is instrumental in my future career plans.
The training was well presented and well thought out. The pre-training work was so helpful for absorption of materials, allowing us to really focus on the intricacies of practice. Erika is an amazing instructor! She is concise and thoughtful, with compassion for our journey. Her encouragement is instrumental in my future career plans. Thank you.
- Yvonne Sands-Sako, BS, RN, MSN/FNP-C, CH
I am beyond excited to bring my new knowledge to the world!
This course was nothing short of mind blowing from the very first day! I felt uncertain that one week would be enough time, but Erika and Tim have skillfully designed and executed a program, practice, and resources that build knowledge, competence, and confidence. I am beyond excited to bring my new knowledge to the world!
- Mara Bowman
This is the Harvard of hypnosis courses
This course is extremely thorough and based on the other curriculums that I reviewed prior to enrolling, 5-PATH and 7 Path are the best in class. This is the Harvard of hypnosis courses. Erika Flint is an exceptional teacher, she clearly loves the work she does and showed up for each person in class purposefully. I would recommend this class and Erika to anyone aspiring to be a hypnotist. I am confident that I can and will be able to go from classroom to client.
- Faviana Campbell
This class was really insightful. I learned a lot about myself and a new skill to help people. It was powerful and emotional. I can’t wait to share what I learned with as many people as I can.
I would recommend this school to anyone
I liked the structure of the class. We utilized our time very well. I liked the practice sessions. I also liked watching the videos of the live sessions. They were very helpful. I would recommend this school to anyone who is really serious about becoming a great hypnotist.
- Diane Reile, CH
The best instructors I’ve ever had
The Cascade Center and the entire staff was amazing! The material was informative and Erika was one of the best instructors I’ve ever had of all the different courses I’ve had over the many years of my professional time span. I’ve had hypnosis many times in my life, and learning 5-PATH & 7th Path has been the most impactful and I’m very excited to share it as a C.H. with my own clients.
- Sri Rome
This class exceed my expectations by a mile!
I had no idea hypnosis could be this structured & purposeful. 5-PATH is incredible and Erika did an amazing job in teaching me to gain mastery over the material. I’m most excited to work in Phase III & IV with clients. I was blown away by case study videos. This class exceed my expectations by a mile!
- Sara Routt, MSW
Love and compassion made the time fly
Erika, Tim, and all the staff were amazing! The class was intense and packed with so much information, but Erika’s way of teaching, her love and compassion made the time fly. I learned so much and gained the confidence to start my own business. The location is very professional and all the tech was so well thought out that made the hybrid in person online training platform work well! The coffee and tea and healthy snacks and water made the training more comfortable so we could focus on what we were learning.
- Stephanie Juha, JD
The best thing I have ever done for myself!
Amazing course. Erika, Tim, and team truly offer an experience rather than just training their knowledge. Program and support have made this the best thing I have ever done for myself! The environment they create is filled with love, compassion, and all-encompassing support!
- Cindy McCormack
I will continue to be supported throughout this wondrous adventure
This course was life changing. I was apprehensive when I was looking to get into hypnosis, but Cascade blew me away with how professional, kind, and attentive they were. It didn’t matter who I spoke with, either Erika or Tim, they both made me feel they were invested in my success. The way this class was taught, the information that was given far exceeded my expectations. I feel that I will continue to be supported throughout this wondrous adventure.

Erika and Tim are incredible. This class has been so great on so many levels. It has set me up to be successful in this field and as a person. So many thanks to them, and all the staff that helped us along the way.
Real and lasting results for people
I have been very impressed with the caliber of teaching and level of support that has been provided by Erika and Tim with Cascade Hypnosis Center. All of the pre-work set up everything perfectly for the live portion of the course. I never felt rushed or like I couldn't ask questions. I have loved practicing 7th Path in addition to learning 5-PATH; it really deepens the learning. I am very grateful for this work and am feeling very proud to now have a method that will get real and lasting results for people.
- Veronica West

I’ve learned so much about how to help people using hypnosis, gained deep personal insights, tremendous confidence, a new purpose and career, made friends and colleagues, and accomplished all this and more in just 2 weeks time! My deepest gratitude goes to Erika and Tim, for their loving guidance as I endeavor on my new journey.
- Debra Deschamps, RN, MS TCM
Literally mind blowing
Hypnosis Certification at Cascade Hypnosis Center is the professional level I was looking for. Ethical and literally mind blowing into a new hemisphere in my brain and Self. It does hold the cohesion of all of my elements of my Spiritual process with myself and others. I truly feel it and feel the transformation. Erika and Tim's work in this program and with clients has way exceeded my expectations! The support is phenomenal. The conversations with Tim getting in the program, to calming fears and overwhelm was and is fantastic. I felt a deep connection. People I feel are friends in a new and different way. Erika Flint, our Masterful Teacher and Tim Freeman another Master Mind! Thank you all for being part of my life!

I am leaving feeling competent
I am leaving feeling competent due to the drilling. I loved the case studies Erika wove in, it made the stories real. Practice partners gave a lot of detailed feedback in the sessions which was really helpful.
- Jeanne DeBaets, RN
Great insights, scripts and case studies
Very thorough coverage of the materials with great insights, scripts and case studies. Erika really has the experience, techniques and words for this work - and Tim has such patience, attention and expertise. I feel ready to start this work too.
- Mary Hayes
Great overall course!
Erika is highly intelligent, energetic and passionate about hypnosis and the training. She was amazingly helpful, patient and loving toward the students. Tech-Guy Tim kept us connected and handled all the admin stuff - not easy. Both made the course pleasurable and educational. Best part for me was the show-me-how-to parts where I could get a feeling of what to do when I practice hypnosis. Great overall course!
- Byron L. Tatsch
A totally heart-mind-and-soul opening experience!

- Maria R. Nebres
I had a great time during the course! The days were long but they were definitely jam packed with helpful information and lots of quick aha moments with Erika’s teaching style and Tim’s assistance, along with the other certified hypnotists joining during practice runs. It helped get a wide variety of feedback and I feel I got what I needed out of the course.
A very comprehensive course
Erika is very thorough and makes learning hypnosis fun. A very comprehensive course.
- Norine M. Barber

- Anairis Gomez, M.A, MHC-LP
Erika was amazing
My instructor Erika was amazing, she explained the material flawlessly and answered all questions with such grace and dignity.
- Quatae Boone
The best part of this training is that as I am learning how to become an effective and ethical hypnotist
With great power comes great responsibility. The best part of this training is that as I am learning how to become an effective and ethical hypnotist, I am also experiencing transformation through the use of 7th Path Self Hypnosis and the behaviors modeled and demonstrated by Erika. That in itself is already enough but Erika, Tim and the guest mentors, who are also graduates of this program, went above and beyond in sharing their 5-PATH knowledge and expertise.I am connected to my highest goodness reminding to practice this profession responsibly.
- Charleston Perez, OTR/L
I encountered exactly what I was hoping to find, and beyond
Erika's practical approach to problem solving and reliance upon proven processes with repeatable results were the primary factors that prompted me to seek her instruction. Upon working with everyone at Cascade Hypnosis I encountered exactly what I was hoping to find, and beyond. I am truly impressed with Erika's process, her results, and her commitment to the truth. She is exactly who I hoped she would be and her instruction is unparalleled.
- Steven Easton
Wow! What an amazing, life-changing course!
Wow! What an amazing, life-changing course! I found the content to be extremely helpful in providing me with personal insight and valuable tools to help clients. I liked the structure in the delivery of content. The schedule each day was a nice blend of working in small groups, lecture, video, and time to work on 7th Path Self Hypnosis.
- Michelle Stratton, BSN, MS, AGNP-BC
You’ll be glad you chose Cascade Hypnosis!
The level of training, knowledge, information, and support ability that Erika brings to the class is staggering! I’ve taken so many Energy Therapy courses and nothing I’ve seen out there comes close to this course. Not only is this class extremely professional ...it is nurturing, caring, and full of love. You’ll be glad you chose Cascade Hypnosis!
- Tessa Mason
This course was a transformational experience
Erika Flint is an enthralling, captivating, and incredibly talented instructor. She shows the utmost interest in her students and in her profession. This course was a transformational experience on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level. The ongoing support and confidence she instills in her work is most admirable. Erika's colleague, Tim, is helpful, resourceful, and caring. He is always prompt to help with any questions and ensures each student is fully prepared. I absolutely urge you to take this course if you are looking for the tools to start your own hypnosis practice.
- Jordyn Theeuwen
It was very inspiring to have past alumni come in
My class met all of my exceptions and beyond. My teacher Erika Flint was excellent and Tim Freeman was right there beside her helping all of us. It was very inspiring to have past alumni come in and give us heartfelt and constructive feedback. It was my pleasure to learn with all of the New Hypnotists. I love you all!! Thank you for giving me the tools to go out in this world to help as many people as I can.
- Lynn Kuhn
I am in love with the Cascade Team, so grateful for this work and for a new life path to unfold.
With lots of interaction and practicing, I felt confident and excited
A lot to take in, but only because there is so much more with 5-PATH and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis and it’s mind blowing. With lots of interaction and practicing, I felt confident and excited to get started on my own business and look forward to future classes down the road to enhance what I've already learned.
- Barbara Deckert
Erika Flint delivers.
1. I wanted an instructor who is in the trenches doing all aspects of the hypnosis business, and even more than I may ever want to do in my career, so she can hold my hand and show me how to do it.
2. I wanted to learn a comparatively simple hypnosis system to learn to work with clients that boils everything down to basic, effective principles and not be overwhelmed by dozens and dozens of intricate techniques and scripts impossible to memorize. Erika Flint delivers.
- Troy Dailey
I highly recommend this to anyone
I loved Erika, her approach is straight & to the point. The structure of the class was amazing & the community factor was a nice bonus. It is an intense training that is both transformative & fun. I highly recommend this to anyone that is on the fence.
- Ashley Stanley
I am overwhelmed with gratitude and feel empowered to succeed

Erika Flint is a phenomenal teacher who truly cares about her students and about making the world a better place. Positive reinforcement is constantly present from Erika and her team to help move students toward the end goal of being a successful, effective hypnotist.

- Bruce Langford
For the first time in over a decade I'm excited about a career in service to humanity.
Cascade Hypnosis changed my life. Reigniting a spark that was nearly snuffed completely out. Erika made me cry. Tears of Joy, relief, pride and inspiration. For the first time in over a decade I'm excited about a career in service to humanity. I know I can now help people create lasting change, to bring back that childlike innocence, joy and that Passion for life again.
- Marlena Marie, RN
I feel totally prepared to work with clients now!
Fantastic class, teacher was knowledgeable and skilled at presenting the material for the course. I feel totally prepared to work with clients now!!
- Louie Hallie, MSW
I expected this course to be enlightening, it turned out to be enlightening and completely life-transforming. Hypnosis is the healing modality I didn't know existed but have sought for the last twenty years, and I learned that from Erika Flint - an authentic, genuinely heart-led expert. The level of professionalism and preparedness that Erika and Tim bring is EXCEPTIONAL. From my initial interview through every aspect of the 2 week course (including all course materials, the sessions themselves, the camaraderie that's fostered within the group and leaders...) I couldn't help but be continually impressed. I was initially nervous about what 10 hours of class for many days would be like, but it was so smooth. Erika places perfectly timed and spaced breaks to move the body throughout the day. It wasn't overwhelming at all! As it's coming to an end I'm deeply aware of the profound level of healing that was brought to our lovely group of humans and that we're well equipped now to go out and offer the same to those who need it in the world. I could not be more grateful for this experience.
It was a welcoming and heartfelt environment all around
Erika is an outstanding teacher and you can tell she really puts her heart into this course and cares. The layout of the class was very organized and easy to follow, and her teaching style is perfect and makes the information really easy to absorb. It was a welcoming and heartfelt environment all around, and I really felt like we got to know everyone really well despite the training being virtual. Having Tim there to give feedback, answer questions, and handle all the behind the scenes was amazing and ensured that the training was run seamlessly. I got my money's worth out of this training and then some - it was a transformational experience!

I feel more than prepared to start helping clients
The certification course was so comprehensively thorough! There’s so much information to absorb and yet I’m pleasantly surprised that I feel more than prepared to start helping clients get amazing results in their lives right away. Erika is a wonderful teacher. Her wealth of experience, insight, and energy made this course even more impactful than expected. I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to learn from her and am looking forward to her continued mentorship!I HIGHLY recommend Erika and the 5-PATH certification course without any reservations.

A professional yet fun environment to learn the course.
Erika provided a professional yet fun environment to learn the course. Tim was always there to assist her and keeping all communications flowing free. A lot of info to take in but doing the repetitions over and over helped anchor it in my mind and heart.

I feel blessed beyond words to have joined here
Oh my gosh, I could go on and on. The class was run perfectly for my learning style. I am amazed at how something so heart-oriented could be presented so professionally. I will model this, the way Erika presents her services, to the best of my ability. Tim is a life-saver. From the first email I received to schedule my interview with Erika, payments, follow up phone calls... I felt fully supported, secure, and clear about my decision. It felt like there was some mind-reading going on every time my note-taking ability felt lacking, and Tim's comments, notes, or forms would pop up in the chat. I feel blessed beyond words to have joined here with them and all of the past instructors that helped during practice sessions. I firmly believe now more than ever in my life that I am in the right place, at the right time. How the course was organized- intense and full of love, made this one of the best experiences hands-down I have ever had in all of my 36 years. The flow of the instruction was incredible. Erika has such a gift of balancing the materials/ coursework with the breaks, room to share our revelations/ insights/experiences, and encouragement of self-care and love that is so necessary for this type of work- the work that I know now without any doubt I have truly received the call to do. I felt supported every step of the way, and would encourage anyone interested in hypnosis training to take this course. This fully immersive connection is truly raising the profession, no question. Proud to be a 5-PATH-er! All my heart

I’m so excited to go out in the world
This training has been such a phenomenal experience. Having previously gone to grad school for clinical psychology in a program that was 5 years long, I was blown away by the amount of incredibly helpful and powerful information we were able to learn over the course of two weeks that, undoubtedly, will bring about such a meaningful difference in people’s lives, unlike anything I’ve learned or encountered before. I had some uncertainty before beginning the program and wondered if I’d really feel confident going from classroom to client as a professional hypnotist after taking part in the training. That uncertainty quickly began to subside after the first day, and by the end of the first week, I, as well as my peers in the training, were already beginning to feel so much more confident, competent, and knowledgeable. I truly believe and feel that working with the subconscious mind to heal the limiting beliefs we’ve internalized about ourselves is the key to actualizing to our full potential as human beings. This training only reaffirmed that for me. I’m so excited to go out in the world and begin supporting people on their journeys to their best, fullest, happiest, and most authentic selves. Because of this training with Erika and Tim’s support, I’m confident that I can.

Fun, informative, and transformational
I knew nothing about hypnosis, but the transformations and helping people with such great results was extremely intriguing. After having great/informative/helpful conversations with Tim and Erika, I felt that I NEEDED this class. After finishing it, I can boldly say that I was right! Not only did this class help transform me internally, but it gave me the confidence to go out and help other people make even greater transformations. I lacked in confidence and was worried about starting a real business, but now I think I have everything I need to get started, and I know that I have the help of Tim and Erika to help me become not just a great hypnotist, but one of the best in the world. I don’t think I’ve ever had even half the amount of confidence in anything I’ve ever done. The class was fun, informative, and transformational. I am so excited to go out and help others. I could only hope that someday I can run a business so well and have such a great staff!
- Brittney Krier
One of the most meaningful experiences of my life
This was such a unique course. Not only did I learn more than I was expecting, but I also got to have one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. I am looking forward to sharing the same love with my community applying what I have learned in class. Thank you, Erika, for all the great and inspiring information provided in your course. What a fantastic instructor! Also, thank you, Tim, for all the tremendous support and thoughtful feedback you shared. I now feel ready to go out there and help some people.
- Cezar de Paula

Just wanted to thank everyone so much for your hard work and dedication. It is truly inspiring and uplifting!

I can't recommend this class enough
Erika Flint did a great job of covering the material and keeping the class on track. The course was intense, and had to keep moving to make sure all topics and techniques were covered. The in-class practice with partners was immersive and invaluable in building both skills and confidence in our abilities as hypnotists. I can't recommend this class enough for those serious about helping others with hypnosis.
- Terry Dunga
With a very recent interest in hypnosis, I researched several programs. After hours of inquiry I determined that Cascade Hypnosis offered the most professional, thorough, and heart centered program available.
Erika and Tim. They are totally awesome!

So much love and respect
It was absolutely amazing!!! The way the class was taught and the interaction helped to solidify the information. Erika and Tim are amazingly heart-centered and they treated us with so much love and respect that it helped us be vulnerable and learn even more. They are such an excellent example of truly being in service to our clients!
- Robin Mazur
Life-changing, life-affirming experience
Wow. This course was a life-changing, life-affirming experience. I cannot imagine taking this journey with any other captain. Erika (and Tim) really exemplified what it means to run a heart-centered business, and it made all the difference for me. I put all my trust and energy into the past two weeks and I feel it was returned to me tenfold. I am just so extremely satisfied with everything I’m coming out of this course with and would truly recommend it to anyone and everyone wanting to learn hypnosis!
- Kira Campbell
The virtual classroom ended up being quite enjoyable
Erika is a fantastic teacher, full of sincere love for her students to achieve and be successful. She is expressive and dynamic, and anyone can tell that she truly enjoys teaching and working with her hypnosis clients. The virtual classroom ended up being quite enjoyable. I was really looking forward to the live experience, but having this online experience I’m sure will affect my decision to offer online services now! The course itself was well planned and I appreciate the benefits of repetition. The structure helped me to feel quite secure of my induction delivery by the end of the course. There is a lot of information to digest, but I’m grateful to know there is much to fall back on in our manuals and with products offered. I’m ready to go!!!
- Valerie Doerrfeld
Erika did an excellent job presenting the 5 PATH and 7th Path Hypnosis. She created a safe and loving environment for learning and growing. The entire class was top-notch from start to finish. Tim was also an incredible support not only on the technical side, but as support for all of the students. Thank you!
Erika and Tim were both phenomenal
The course was well organized and planned out for optimal learning. Erika and Tim were both phenomenal! I’m very glad that there will be an opportunity to connect in person with our class and instructors, as there is a lot of value in time spent together interacting. It was very valuable to have grades sit in and observe practice sessions!
- Sue Edwards
Online had added benefits
On first impression of doing this class online, I was very nervous about not getting what I would need to be an effective hypnotist. Within two days I was convinced that online had added benefits. Erika and Tim were very effective teachers with bigger than gold presence. Everything was covered as if we were in the office physically. I looked forward to being online with them and the whole class.I am excited that I also know how to do hypnosis online now. What an exciting time and Erika has been very exciting to learn from. She and Tim also really know how to spark a fire for success in me. I love it. 5-PATH and 7th Path are amazing for my own growth and for my wellness business. I can hardly wait to start sharing this new skill starting tomorrow. Thank you SO MUCH!
- Elizabeth Harper-Schurman, B.S.
I would definitely encourage people to sign up
This class was awesome! I would definitely encourage people to sign up. There is so much to learn about yourself and others through hypnosis. A definite way to improve your life and let go of anything holding you back from a better one! As teachers, you have scored A++++! So proud to be one of your students!

More praise for our hypnosis training program
I feel this training gave me everything I need to become an excellent hypnotist. I am beyond excited to get out into the world and share the knowledge and techniques. I am looking forward to continuously learning more and becoming the best I can be, for the greatest good of all. I am grateful for my instructor and the whole experience.
This course was beyond what I expected. The material and the instruction matched my experience in a grad school. In fact, the instructor, Erika Flint, surpassed my expectations. As a former “talk therapist,” I am so excited to now be trained to conduct sessions that get to the deeper issues more quickly and with excellent results. I’ve learned a different way to look at feelings and their causes, and how to help clients better understand themselves. I appreciate the criteria based Phases of Hypnosis and how the material was presented.
I’ve been using hypnosis for years helping people with various problems. Five Path Hypnosis is much more than I expected. It not just a program teaching hypnosis, it’s a true system on how to help people from start to finish. Erika dose an amazing job of presenting both the 5 Path Hypnosis System and 7th Path self hypnosis. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn hypnosis or for those who are already practicing it and want to become even more proficient
Erika is so passionate about how she wants to help others and help us help others through hypnosis. Erika demonstrates her thorough knowledge of hypnosis with efficiency, compassion, and humor. We couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!!!
This course was great and extremely informative. The incremental information exchange was perfect. Erika was an excellent instructor - clear and energetic. She encouraged questions and gave plenty of positive feedback. I appreciate that the information in this class is transformative on a personal and professional level. I’m leaving with more tools to help myself and to help others.
Absolutely an excellent class and experience. I feel very confident now and feel able to start in hypnosis and hypnotherapy successfully very soon!
Erika is extremely capable and knowledgeable in all aspects of hypnotherapy! She is able to effectively transfer the necessary knowledge and practical skills needed by a professional hypnotherapist in their business.
This course was very informative and insightful. I loved learning how to do hypnosis and how to best serve my clients. I also loved learning 7th Path. I had many realizations and look forward to more as I continue to practice. Erika was a great teacher and we were offered the information many times in different formats. She has an awesome support team as well.”
This course far exceeded my expectations. I was very impressed with the amount of information I was taught and the way in which it was delivered. I am so glad that this course stretched me far beyond where I thought I could go. I feel equipped. I do feel like an expert of hypnosis. I felt like it was worth every penny. Erika and her staff… THE BEST!!! Kind, considerate, compassionate, and professional. LOVE.

-Carol Ann Evans RN, ND
The content of the course has been covered very well and a lot of extra information was given to us by Erika, based on her experience with clients. The structure of the program really helped me learn and master both the theory and practice. The energy in the class and all the sharing we were encouraged to do added a lot of value to our learning. I consider this more than a certification course, it felt like a spiritual experience and journey. Thanks Erika!
-Veronica Bovenzi, PhD
“This has been a course for my transformation. Well worth the time and the cost. It definitely put me outside of my comfort zone, but that is where I can operate at a very high level. I can’t wait to see clients and help them live better lives. Help clients achieve their dreams.”
-Charles Cohen, MBA, CFP, RICP
The course was put together in a very informative way. It kept moving in a way that held my attention.

I’m looking forward to learning and growing further through the mentorship program. Thank you Erika!! :)”
The class was transformative!
So much information so well presented!
The instructor (Erika) was a wealth of information beyond what was presented in the books. Absolutely fantastic! The support staff and other hypnotists were so great, so helpful!
Hard to put into words what a transformational, life-changing class this was.
Erika Flint is brilliant, kind, compassionate, and a gifted teacher. Her staff are great facilitators and made everything flow smoothly everyday.
This was my second certification class for hypnosis - first was RTT. 5-PATH made me feel like I really get it now and can move my clients through the whole process without fear of leaving things hanging.”
-Susann Martin, MA
This course exceeded my expectations. Erika and support staff were super professional and the material was very comprehensive and easy to understand.

-Melina Costa de Souza
This class was outstanding. Erika insightful, informative, and gives direct suggestions throughout the class. I was specifically drawn to Erika because of her obvious business savvy. I loved that the patter was given. As a veterinarian, it is clear that we come into our own as professionals with great patter.
Erika is a gem! Her staff members were amazing assets, facilitating and guiding us as well.
Erika’s loving energy exemplifies the qualities of a caring hypnotist and shows us the way with positive supportive suggestions.
Thank you Cal - you are clearly a genius!”
-Michelle Zachry, DVM

Train With Us
Become a professional hypnotist with a thriving business with our complete training and certification course.
Erika and her staff created a very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for learning. The class was fun and each topic was covered thoroughly, leaning room for any and all questions to be answered. The schedule was consistent and easy to follow.
All of our needs were met for the long days attending class. The assistants, Annie and Shannon, helped with their tips, ensuring we were getting the mechanics and techniques correct with Erika’s supervision.
Erika is a pleasure to learn from and I enjoyed the class very much.
Exceeded my expectations - wow - absolutely life-changing.
Can’t wait to get out there and help people change their lives!
Erika was great - very procedural and professional - very thorough class! The staff is the BEST!
"I came into this class afraid and full of misconceptions about hypnosis. Erika graciously included me on her email for the new book, Can You Be a Hypnotist? My misconceptions faded away but my fear still remained. This fear reared up the first few days in class when I sat in the “big chair” for the first time.
Erika’s professionalism and compassion gave me the belief that I could be hypnotized and be safe. That moment changed me forever and helped me to be compassionate towards others who may also have fear with hypnosis.
Thank you Erika!”
Jacqueline “Jax” Mantikoski
This course has been a powerful learning experience, full of insight and material that will benefit my practice and my life.
Erika has been such an amazing and wise instructor who has taught me so much in such a remarkably short amount of time. Everyone in my class is helpful, open, and has been a vital part of this learning experience.
The power of hypnosis has many uses that can benefit anyone, which is precisely what I am prepared to share with the world!
I was really nervous on the first day and was not sure if I could make it to the last day. As the days go by, thanks to 7th Path Self Hypnosis, I was getting more confidence for myself, and got lots of insights and perceptions that I never had before.
It was surely a life-changing, intensive hypnosis training course for me. Thank you so much for such a fantastic course, Erika!! I can’t wait to start my career as a hypnotist.
This course was amazing. I have been a teacher for many years and a professional developer for faculty and an instructional designer for 5 years. I learned so much so quickly and it was because of the course design – the high quality instruction – the amazing learning environment. I did not think I could do this but I WANTED to, and Erika showed me! I can now do all kinds of inductions and deepeners and provide SUCH high quality experiences for my clients. I am SO glad I got to do this with Erika!
I wish I had better words to describe how fantastic this learning experience was – both for my work life, personal life, and this new career!
Great learning environment. Careful, recursive, scaffolded course design. Perfect balance of high challenge, high support. Great teacher persona and care – created confidence and sense of belonging for each of us and for the group. Exceptional quality and worth every penny. I am so grateful for the mentorship.
