Another new graduate comment:

"After I completed a 100 hour hypnotherapy program and opened a practice as a professional hypnotherapist, I intuitively knew that I lacked an adequate platform from which to launch a career in the healing arts. Four years later I had completed an MA in Counseling Psychology and then obtained a license as an MFT. Last Summer, I decided to refurbish my skill set in hypnotherapy and this time I chose HTI. I must say that if had had the good fortune to have originally learned what I learned in August with Randal Churchill and Cheryl Canfield, two truly gifted educators and healers, I could have bypassed the Masters degree completely. Hypnosis is an unsung therapeutic modality in the mental and behavioral health fields. We are truly blessed as professionals to have access to such masters in the field as Churchill and Canfield. They deliver the principles and practice of hypnotherapy as a healing modality of infinite promise and our clients may all be the better for it."

Raves from New Zealand
        "I am a practicing psychologist and therapist from New Zealand, so I've come a long way for this course. When I saw your brilliant work in New Zealand last year I was so impressed I knew I certainly had to come and learn more. The month here has simply flown, full of real gems in terms of therapy, and in terms of getting to know myself better. The depth of the excellent therapy demonstrations and the personal knowledge, commitment and sincerity of each instructor is truly remarkable."
-David Page, Registered Clinical Psychologist, Certified Hypnotherapist , Palmerston North, New Zealand

        "I cannot praise you enough - I'm recommending your absolutely life-transforming school to as many people as I can."
