3 modules | 12 videos | 3 hours

Become a Nerva healthcare provider of choice


Accrue three hours of self-directed professional development hours and become a Nerva-approved facilitator, with the skills and knowledge to support your patients through app-based gut-directed hypnotherapy.

This course is for all healthcare professionals interested in gut health.

What you'll learn

You’ll dive into the research and science behind gut-directed hypnotherapy; compare the low FODMAP diet to gut-directed hypnotherapy; learn to identify red flags; and discover how and when to refer your patients to Nerva and monitor their progress along the way.

What you'll receive

Upon completion of the course, you will become a Nerva-approved facilitator. Your contact information will be included on our website’s Clinicians' Directory for our 1,000s of users to access. You'll also receive three free Nerva accounts for your patients. You'll earn three more for every colleague you refer to the course.

Please note, this course will help you support your patients through the Nerva program, not to become a hypnotherapy practitioner.

“I really enjoyed learning more about evaluating Nerva. Gaining more information about the IBS experience for my patients is always so helpful as a practitioner. I was also very interested to learn more about maintenance and how I can help people sustain their positive results after they’ve completed the six-week program.”

- Amy Minogue APD, AM Dietetics, Australia
