Legendary Hypnotist - Gil Boyne
Gil Boyne (October 28, 1924 - May 5, 2010) was an American pioneer in modern hypnotherapy who focused on training thousands of "lay" hypnotherapists primarily in Glendale, CA as well as throughout the world. He championed the accessibility of hypnotherapy and consistently fought against legislative efforts worldwide to restrict hypnosis to the purely medical professions, which had largely ignored the therapeutic value of hypnosis until Boyne, Milton Erickson, and Dave Elman. Boyne was mentored by Ormond McGill, with whom he collaborated for the 1977 book "Professional Stage Hypnotism". Over the course of more than 55 years he trained thousands of hypnotherapists globally with his Transforming Therapy™ methods, many of whom themselves wrote many books and created their own hypnotherapy training centers including Randal Churchill(Hypnotherapy Training Institute) and Charles Tebbetts.
