CERO International is an exciting new branch of CERO,  Close Encounters Resource Organization,  which was founded in 1991 by Certified Hypnotherapist, Yvonne Smith.  The original CERO has for over 20 years conducted monthly support group meetings as a resource and safe-haven for experiencers of  alien abductions or close encounters .
CERO International  branches out from the “local” Southern California nature of its support group, and by expanding nationally and internationally,  will provide information, support and cutting-edge world wide UFO  presentations and news.
By hosting presentations by experiencers and researchers  of international reputation,  CERO International will step outside of and supplement its closed door support group meetings and educate the general public about the reality of the UFO phenomenon and the trauma to which experiencers may be subjected.

Smith began researching the UFO phenomenon in the late 1980s. After 2 years of studies and 1000 hours of internship a California Hypnosis Motivation Institute, the only accredited hypnosis college in the United States, she received her hypnotherapy certification in 1990. Specializing in cases of post traumatic stress disorder, she uses her hypnotherapy skills to assist such victims to work through their anxiety, with many of her subjects referred to her by physicians and psychiatrists who believe Smith’s expertise can benefit their patients. In fact, many such patients are themselves doctors, university professors, military, engineers, lawyers, domestic and foreign pilots other professionals and many non-professionals, sometimes flying from other countries to meet with Smith in Los Angeles.

In UFO circles, whenever there is a reported “sighting” UFO investigators emphasize and evaluate whether the experiencer’s description supports, or not, the reality of a UFO contact. However, the emphasis of recognized regressive hypnotherapy expert Yvonne Smith concerns the too frequently ignored emotional trauma on the experiencer of their encounter.

Because Smith (who is internationally known in UFO circles as simply "hypnotherapist Yvonne") observed that many of the PTSD cases being referred to her involved subjects describing similar patterns of UFO abduction encounters, she founded Close Encounters Resource Organization [CERO] as a monthly-meeting support group for such individuals in 1992. She was also on the board of the Organization for Paranormal Understanding and Support (OPUS) which furthers support for such subjects.
In addition to being a hypnotherapist “in demand”, since 1991 Yvonne has traveled extensively, presenting lectures in the United States at M.I.T. and several other universities, at many American “UFO” conferences. The Roswell International UFO Museum annually invites Yvonne to present multiple lectures, be a panel member, and be moderator of their investigator panel. She has also lectured and conducted many standing-room-only and record breaking experiencer sessions at the International UFO Congress in Nevada, U.S.A., and has also lectured for several years at international conferences from South America to Europe.
As the foremost female hypnotherapist in this field, in the 1990s Yvonne traveled on a lecture tour with hypnotherapy colleagues the late Dr. John Mack of Harvard and pioneer Budd Hopkins, and also David Jacobs, PhD. of Temple University.

Yvonne has made hundreds of television and radio appearances. ABC News selected Yvonne to respond in a televised news special to Stephen Hawking’s negative depiction of aliens. Comfortable in front of cameras, her American television appearances have included programs such as The History, Discovery, and Biography channels, The Montel Williams Show, Intruders, MSNBC, Encounters, Sightings, Joan Rivers, Rosanne Barr and The Leeza Show. Foreign t.v. projects have included Telemundo T.V., and Jaime Maussan Productions, Germany T.V., Australian, Canadian, and Italian television for broadcast to multiple countries. Having her living room turned into a television “studio” for many hours has been a common occurrence, and she is frequently a consultant to producers, directors and actors for movies and television programs in the works.
Yvonne’s regressive hypnotherapy was featured in the Biography channel’s film “Alien Intent” which was co-produced and narrated by prize winning author Whitley Strieber and also featured well known surgeon Dr.Roger Leir.

Yvonne has also been interviewed as a frequent radio program guest by such well known radio hosts as Coast to Coast with George Noory, Art Bell, Paul Harvey, Jerry Pippin, Dr. David Viscott, Joe Montaldo, , the Sweeps Fox “Radio Ireland” show, England’s “The Unexplained” and many other hosts who have broadcast Yvonne’s interviews to over to over 54 countries. Interviews of Yvonne have also been published in both United States and foreign publications, including the Nexus international publication.

With Travis Walton, Smith was a guest of a historic Coast to Coast 2012 broadcast which also included as guests, for their first their time in 35 years “on air” , two of Walton’s fellow workers who witnessed his abduction, only to then face murder charges. Coast2Coast expanded its traditional 3 hour format to 4 hours for this special presentation.

In addition to her many radio and TV interviews and participation, Yvonne with her CERO group, was asked by Disney’s Michael Eisner to participate in a Disney project involving release of their movie, “Alien Encounters” (1995).

Yvonne has also lectured and been a panel-member with well known colleagues, UFO researchers, writers and speakers such as Whitley Strieber, George Noory, Dr. Roger Leir, nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, Jesse Marcel, Jr., M.D., Paola Harris, John Carpenter, Maj.Robert Dean, ret., Jaime Maussan, Don Schmitt, Tom Carey, Steve Bassett, Linda Howe, Michael Lindemann, Travis Walton, Derrel Sims and others. She has also enjoyed conferences with former U.S. Apollo astronaut, Edgar Mitchell.

Yvonne is the author of “CHOSEN: Recollections of UFO Abductions Through Hypnotherapy” which exposes, with dramatic regressive hypnotherapy transcripts, the hidden memory trauma reality suffered by abductees.
Budd Hopkins and Yvonne are the subjects of the DVD, “Alien Hybrids & Clinical Hypnotherapy.” which is volume 1 from the Secrets of the Underground series.
