What students are saying

"I have just completed the Hypnotic World hypnotherapy diploma course, and I just want to say a few words about it. Firstly, the amazing teaching that we have had - the guidance through our tutor, Sally - absolutely amazing - and I think the confidence that I have actually gained through coming to each module and being guided through each module has been second to none... in - now that I'm finished - knowing that I am confident enough to be able to take all I have learnt and to setup in practice is a great thing. And that takes a lot of help and guidance, and through each module, Sally has offered that in bucket loads. It's been an incredible journey and I'm really grateful for that. Also, the friends and comradery I've had. Through coming together with other hypnotherapists - other students who are training - and really building up friendship and support and rapport. And actually to be there and to see everybody and connect with them and to see what everybody else has been going through, and we've been a good support team to help each other through, too. So yes, it's been a great experience."

Joanne Mechie

"I had always been a little curious about hypnosis, and when the opportunity arose to look into it through this course - and become a qualified hypnotherapist to boot - I seized it with enthusiasm and excitement. I have to say, it has transformed my life in two ways. Firstly, by the way how I now see people and situations, which ultimately means how I understand life; and secondly, the fact that I now have a whole new career. All thanks to our wonderful course tutor. Sally Benson is a naturally-gifted and highly effective practitioner - and I speak as someone with over 30 years' teaching experience. She breaks the weekend lessons up into manageable chunks with carefully-planned rest breaks... where we inevitably just drank tea, ate cake and picked her brains even more about hypnosis! She made the intensive 10-weekend (monthly) course a non-stop rollercoaster of fun, fascinating information and challenges - and at times I must admit I was certainly out of my comfort zone. The course does have theory, but the practical aspect is really emphasised. To be honest, that's where the real learning occurred for me. Half way through the course, I felt I could actually use hypnotherapy. And, perhaps more important than anything, Sally prepares you for the rigours of the business world, with great lessons for setting up your own website and how to be successful, which pitfalls to avoid, etc. So, in short, it is fun but practical. Highly recommended."
