All of our trainers practice hypnosis professionally along with the trainings they provide. This allows them to illustrate their classes with real life examples and case-experience.

Focus on the practice

Demonstrations, games, practice: our goal is to train creative and adaptable professionals.

Our trainers provide a pragmatic and artistic vision of hypnosis. While courses consist of theoretical explanations and demonstrations, there is above all a lot of practice! Our teaching methods are suited to different styles of learners, through active listening, observation and action.

From the onset of our training cycle, we focus on technique and play. Our wish is to pass on these simple, yet extraordinary communication tools to those who would like to discover them for themselves, to develop a therapeutic practice, or as an addition to an existing practice.

Only a limited number of students participate in each training module so that everyone may receive individual support in a small group setting. The trainer tracks each student’s progress throughout the week, and provides them with the tailored advice they need for optimal results.

We also continue guiding each student beyond their Cycle 1 course depending on their individual needs, offering Supervision & Improvement modules, practitioner intervisions and individual supervisions. We want everyone to blossom in their practice. We advocate a humble approach which encourages movement, drive, and the questioning of our own practice as the means to constantly improving.

«Les formateurs sont à l’écoute et présentent la théorie de manière ludique et vivante !»

Les explications durant la formation sont très claires. Il y a une bonne disponibilité des formateurs qui donnent des retours pertinents en fin de semaine. Il y a aussi une très bonne prise en compte de la personne ! 

Les formateurs sont à l’écoute et présentent la théorie de manière ludique et vivante !

Technician 2

«Cette formation m’a permis de dépasser des blocages et résistances éventuelles»

A titre personnel, cette formation m’a permis de dépasser des blocages et résistances éventuelles, vivre des états de conscience modifiés et découvrir ce monde inconnu.

Sur le plan professionnel, elle m’a permis d’avoir une corde de plus à mon arc complémentaire du métier de psychologue auquel je me prédestine afin de pouvoir accompagner et aider.

Technician 2

«L’hypnose offre une palette d’outils unique pour mieux interagir avec nos clients»

Issue du monde de la communication, j’ai découvert que l’hypnose offre une palette d’outils unique pour mieux interagir avec nos clients, nos proches, et aussi avec nous-mêmes !

The training is done in such a good way that even those who are a priori afraid of initiating or making mistakes dare to practice and get into the exercises without worrying about "getting it right."  Cette approche des formateurs nous aide à progresser !

Practitioner 1

«Oser encore plus, me faire confiance»

My goal was to improve my communication, exchanges and relationship with others. And this training helped me to free myself, to dare even more, to trust myself.

J’ai été très touché par la simplicité du formateur.

«Une façon différente de m’exprimer ou d’écouter les autres»

Sur le plan personnel, cette formation m’apporte une nouvelle approche du monde, une façon différente de m’exprimer ou d’écouter les autres, de leur porter une nouvelle attention.

For me, it is also the beginning of a profound change. Professionally, it will help me to manage interactions in the corporate world.

David, Technician 1

«Plus qu’un outil, la formation me fait évoluer sur ma manière d’accompagner»

«J’ai été agréablement surpris»

J’ai été agréablement surpris par les différences par rapport à l’approche enseignée dans ma précédente école.

I really don't regret having chosen A.R.C.H.E. Hypnose Suisse for my second training. Thank you !


«Ma communication s’est améliorée!»

I didn't know that we could do so much with hypnosis!.

Le format était parfait, pas trop de théorie qui nous assomme. On ne passe pas 3h sur le même sujet peu importe si on a vraiment compris ou non.

Then practicing without being "sure" you're doing it right allows you to allow yourself to make mistakes, and to learn from any common or personal mistakes. I really like how the training is done!

My communication has improved with others but also with myself!


«Mieux interagir avec nos clients, nos proche»

Issue du monde de la communication, j’ai découvert que l’hypnose offre une palette d’outils unique pour mieux interagir avec nos clients, nos proches, et aussi avec nous-mêmes !

The training is so good that even those who are afraid to start or to make mistakes dare to practice and start the exercises without worrying about "doing everything right".  This approach helps us to grow faster!

L’accompagnement était très personnalisé avec des points individuels réguliers, c’était riche et formateur !

Nous avons pu pratiquer via zoom par petits groupes de manière très confortable et le week-end c’était que du bonheur !!!!

Isabelle, Technician 2

«On assimile mieux »

Des pratiques le soir en visio-conférence, et les exercices en tout petit groupe le week-end c’était vraiment super ainsi !

I find it helps assimilate the material better and I can rest between sessions!

Damien, Technician 3

«Tout aussi intéressant et efficace qu’en présentiel»

The fact that the curriculum spreads across 14 days helps us understand and assimilate all the tools that we are given. 

Practicing online with other students is just as interesting and effective as in class.

We are well-equipped to offer sessions both online and in person! 

Colombe, Technician 2



Learning hypnosis means exploring our states of mind, our brain and the human complexity. It is without a doubt, one of the most inspiring adventures of this century!

Kevin Finel

Founder of A.R.C.H.E.

Hypnosis is a discipline that applies to a large scope of fields. What A.R.C.H.E offers above all, is the use of altered states of consciousness known as the hypnotic state for therapy, well-being, self-understanding and conducting change.

In soliciting the numerous internal resources of an individual, hypnosis makes it possible to work on various topics such as lack of confidence or lack of self-esteem, stress and burn-outs, depressive episodes, anguish and anxiety, fears and phobias, sexual disorders, sleeping disorders, traumatizing events, bad habits, eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia), overweight, etc.

Hypnosis is also used as a way to increase motivation, facilitate and accelerate learning, improve concentration as well as efficiency and performance, for example in sports.

Because of its multiple applications, hypnosis is increasingly becoming a discipline applied in conjunction with other therapeutic practices and other forms of communication in all professional areas.
