About Us


The Thomas Institute of Hypnosis was founded in 1998 by Cynthia Kile Thomas, an internationally-recognized hypnotherapist and instructor. It is the first postsecondary hypnotherapy school licensed by the State of New Hampshire. Hundreds of hypnotherapists in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, and throughout the United States have successfully completed our ongoing training and certification programs.

Our hands-on hypnotherapy certification program incorporates demonstrations and a color-coded workbook that makes it easy to follow along and practice outside of the classroom. Because our training materials were developed with standards from the National Guild of Hypnotists, those who successfully complete the program are certified both by the State of New Hampshire, and the NGH.


The Institute comes highly recommended for its training programs and hypnotherapy sessions by the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest worldwide organization of its kind.


Our program director, Dawn Whiting, trained with Ms. Thomas and the National Guild of Hypnotists. She purchased the school from Ms. Thomas. A certified hypnotherapist and HypnoCoach with the NGH, Dawn attended the Weiss Institute in Miami, where she received her training in Regression Therapy. She is also certified in Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis.


A licensed accountant and attorney, Dawn is an excellent communicator who pays close attention to detail—very important skills for her role as an educator and hypnotherapist. Dawn has been featured in many newspaper articles, appeared on network and cable television, and served as a guest speaker for numerous radio programs. Whether conducting group hypnosis sessions for families and corporations, providing private hypnosis in her office, or teaching her many classes, Dawn is driven to helping individuals achieve their goals.
