Our founder, Ron Klein, began NBCCH 30+ years ago, and grew it into one of the premier certifying boards for hypnotherapists.  For decades, Ron was known for training hypnotherapists in Ericksonian methods and NLP.  In 2019, Lorrie Fisher came on board as Ron's Director of Membership.  She created an updated website for NBCCH, and Ron began discussions about the future of NBCCH as he contemplated retirement.  By the 4th quarter of 2021 Ron had closed his institute and office due to failing health, and the legal transfer of NBCCH to Lorrie began. Perhaps due to Long COVID, Ron interrupted that transfer by posting a surprise announcement that NBCCH would terminate effective New Year's Eve 2021. With the new NBCCH website in hand, Lorrie relaunched NBCCH effective New Years Day 2022.


Thanks to the loyalty and enthusiasm of our membership, once again, NBCCH is thriving. We have all retained our certifications and are now adding new services for our members..  

Lorrie Fisher is a PhD psychophysiologist (literally a mind-body practitioner) with an online, private practice. She's licensed as a marriage and family therapist, and is board certified in biofeedback /neurofeedback. Her practice consists of remotely supervised at-home neurofeedback and biofeedback, as well as online brief trauma hypnotherapy. Lorrie has trained in RRT, Brainspotting, EMDR, NLP, Kriya meditation, and is certified as a Clinical Fellow by NBCCH. Her education includes architecture and medicine, with a bit of what's called bio-hacking on the side.  To learn more visit  Or call the contact number and say hello.
