In the Words of our Clients

  • "I made it to Barcelona! Your anti-anxiety CD's were just what I needed to get me on the plane. My husband and I are already planning our next trip. Thank you so much for helping me through my fear of flying."
    Roberta S.
  • "Thanks so much for the excellent course! I am excited to incorporate hypnosis as a therapy as part of my counselling practice, and to be able to help people in this way. I appreciated the opportunities to practice, and to experience hypnosis, as this gives me a deeper understanding of what hypnosis is and how to practice it. I also really enjoyed your professionalism and warmth - these made for an excellent learning environment. I am excited to get started with my hypnotherapy practice next week, and I look forward to learning more about it from the many resources you provided me. Thanks!"
