Students & Graduates


Here’s what some students have to say about their training:

My two week training with Dr. Amy RW Marsh at IASHS, San Francisco was one of a kind. I still have those days deep on my heart and mind and try being as patient and helpful she had been with us. She is a great instructor and very intuitive person like knowing the exact technique for each situation. She taught us Clinical Hypnosis skills for sexual dysfunctions. I am grateful I can help people millions of miles away after this Course. Her style and peaceful tone are one of a kind. I am thankful I have been part in this amazing life journey of knowledge and inner transformation. — Smae Kyriazides, 2014.

My experience with Amy was just more than Hypnosis study. She also teach us deep layer of Hypnosis and joy of Hypnosis. She [is the] kind of instructor who can satisfy your cravings of knowledge. — Koko Momi Kawauchi Johnson, 2016.

Dr. Marsh’s Intimate Hypnosis Certificate Formerly Offered at IASHS

Dr. Marsh researched, created, and taught the Intimate Hypnosis-Sexological Hypnosis Skills program at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, in San Francisco, from March 2012-May 2015.

Graduates completed a 150-hour training in sexology, hypnosis, and the uses of hypnosis for sexual problems and enrichment. Some graduates of this program have also completed the NGH hypnosis certification (see list above). (IASHS also added a 150-hour

Associate in Sex Education Certificate to this program.)

Unfortunately, as of 2017, IASHS was no longer approved to offer degree programs by the CA Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education. By 2018, IASHS had closed.
