In addition to any previous training with self-hypnosis, consider becoming trained in the 7th Path System of Self-Hypnosis or other systems that interest you. Self-hypnosis easily integrates into ongoing hypnotherapy, be it what you are currently doing or the 5-PATH system.
The 7th Path System of Self-Hypnosis is a Mind-Body-Spirit approach that easily works with any theological or philosophical background that your clients may have. It focuses first on removing old programming before making suggestions for specific change. For example, if a client wants to become a better golfer, conventional self-hypnosis approaches works on changing the behaviors involved in golfing. 7th Path, first works on removing the old programming (inhibiting beliefs, fears, etc.) that may be causing the golfer to resist suggestions for change.
Not only can 7th Path and other forms of self-hypnosis help your clients, but they can go a long way toward helping you. Learn and use self-hypnosis even if you have not achieved the kind of success you had hoped for by using other forms of therapy or training. One of the greatest credentials you can have as a Hypnotherapist is to have made good, positive changes in your life by using hypnosis.
