Prem Thakkar (Completed in December, 2016)

Prem Thakkar My journey with Hypnotic World has been nothing less than magical. Since the very first time I spoke to Faith I knew this is the right organisation for me to complete my diploma. Nothing compares to the help and support I have received. The end of module tests were marked super fast so that I could proceed to studying the next module without delay. The course content is so clear and easy to comprehend and remember. This diploma is the best accomplishment for me yet and it would not have been possible without Hypnotic World and Faith to back me up. I highly recommend this organisation. Thank You Faith.



David Rostron (Completed in August, 2016)

David Rostron The course is extremely well written. The content of each module build knowledge and understanding in a well-structured manner that is very well complimented by reading the recommended works alongside the modules.

Having had an interest in hypnosis over the last few years, news of my redundancy from my former commercial role liberated me to pursue my passions. Having the option to train and gain a qualification in a field that I have such an interest in led me to Hypnotic World. The structure of the course allowed me to work at my own pace and in my own time, whilst still employed pending redundancy. Other courses have a structure that is spread over scheduled sessions. As someone who learns at an accelerated pace, the student paced structure of Hypnotic World meant that I could progress as fast as I wished. To my delight, Faith Waude was my mentor. Faith's feedback and assessment marking was lighting fast in returning feedback and approvals - seemingly working all hours of the day.

I happily recommend the course to anyone who wishes to qualify as a hypnotherapist, especially if they have the need to fit their training around other commitments. Like the client centred approach the therapy that the course promotes, the course is also student centred. This course is all about the student!



Donna Stevenson (Completed in January, 2015)

Donna Stevenson I just want to say that I found the course most enjoyable. The modules were good bite sized chunks, looking at them all on my bookshelf now I am amazed I got though them all in such a short space of time, however that is true testimony to the way the course was written. I have recommended Hypnotic World to a number of NLP colleagues who are keen to progress through the hypnotherapy route, so you may have a wee influx of Scottish students!

Thank you for all the support you have shown me throughout, I am absolutely thrilled and will utilise the amazing resources on Hypnotic World for a long time to come.



PG, Essex (Completed in December, 2014)

PG, Essex What a wonderful course. Informative, inspiring and stretching. The material was clearly laid out and end of module tests made sure the I understood the material academically and in practice. The course helped create a framework around existing reading and since completing the course I have been able to incorporate it into much of the work I do around the world. An excellent investment of money and time with plenty of scope to apply the learning in helping myself and others. If you are weighing up whether this course is worth it - enrol with confidence.

Thank you!



Isabelle Jourdan (Completed in November, 2014)

Isabelle Jourdan I was very excited when I received my certificate followed by a little emptiness. Empty, because I had suddenly more time without the exercise papers and modules. Now I am learning about marketing and networking (which is a little alien to me) and I am confident that I will reach my goals.

I know that receiving the certificate is only the beginning and I am looking forward to the unfolding of my path.

Thank you again for all your support and encouraging comments on my exercise papers. I am proud to be a member of Hypnotic World.



Tracey Horsey (Completed in September, 2014)

Tracey Horsey I found studying each module thoroughly enjoyable and being able to complete them at my own pace was absolutely perfect. The course material was extremely well written and Faith gave me such wonderful encouragement and support throughout.

Having now successfully achieved my diploma through Hypnotic World, I will embark on my new career with added confidence knowing that Faith and her team will continue to provide support, whenever I need it.



Lynda Edmondson (Completed in March, 2014)

Lynda Edmondson I moved to the Lake District 14 years ago from Surrey and over that time but have been thoroughly welcomed into the Cumbrian way of life.

I began working for The County Council 10 years ago and alongside my day job became a support officer aiding fellow colleagues who were being bullied or harassed or accused of bullying or harassment in the work place.

Through the support officer role, I found a new avenue of where my interests really lay. I went to college of an evening and gained a diploma in person centred counselling. At the time of doing my diploma I became interested in hypnotherapy but was unable at the time to do anything further about it.

The opportunity arose last year whereby I could fulfil this wish and after much internet searching and talking with peers I found Faith Waude at Hypnotic World. The course fitted in around me as I work full time and I could complete each module at my own pace and in a time that was right for me.

Faith was immensely supportive and always quick to respond to any queries that I had, both during and after completion of the course. The course content was very thorough and I looked forward to reading of each of the modules. I was overjoyed when I passed!!

I am now working with clients with varying issues from stopping smoking, trust issues, emotional past issues to weight loss and loving every minute of it. The satisfaction of being able to aid someone to overcome their issues is an amazing feeling.

Thank you to Faith & all at Hypnotic World.



Ralph Goldsmith (Completed in January, 2014)

Ralph Goldsmith "Having spent more than twenty years in management and leadership roles in industry I realised that what I really wanted was to make a difference to people rather than organisations. I have always been fascinated with the power of the mind, and I truly believe that everyone has the potential to do, and be, and enjoy so much more than they can even imagine. Having already completed a course in Life Coaching a couple of years ago I decided that what I really wanted was to learn the skills and techniques of Hypnotherapy. Much research on the internet followed with many training organisations contacted, until I got in touch with Faith Waude at Hypnotic World and signed up for the Diploma in Hypnotherapy course.

The material is presented in 8 printed modules, with some complimentary CDs, Each module has a question paper to be completed and sent back in, and there's a final exam at the end of module 8. I was delighted with the quality of the material presented. This was not a course that was solely about learning some techniques and scripts, but rather a course that was designed to make you think, and analyse, and come to your own conclusions and decisions. The support from Faith was excellent. When I had questions, or felt uncertain about my responses to the questions, she was always able to help. Either giving me reassurance that I was on the right track, or gently pointing me in the right direction if that was necessary. I am now equipped to start my own Hypnotherapy practice and I look forward to helping people. For almost thirty years I have also suffered from an eye condition called Keratoconus and I am in the process of developing a confidence and self reliance program for people with eyesight related diseases or challenges.

Dennis Wilton (Completed in December, 2013)

Dennis Wilton "Whenever I try to write a bio the result seems like a feat of self-gratification: "I did this... I did that... I did the other..." No one achieves anything without help and support no matter how hard they try to be independent, so to remain brief and to the point I have to resist the temptation to involve descriptions of my wonderful family, and the friends who have also played their parts. My interest in hypnotherapy started in 1960 when I bought material from a Psychology Publishing company in Cheshire. In 1970 I worked through the book courses set out by William J. Ousby: 'Self Hypnosis and Scientific Suggestion', and 'Hetero-hypnoses: the theory and practice of Hypnotism'. That was many years ago and faded in memory, so I was really pleased when I had the opportunity to complete the hypnotherapy course with Hypnotic World. The material was comprehensive and presented in non-technical language that anyone could understand, and the feedback from Faith Waude to the module questions and the final exam papers was highly proficient and informative. It is gratifying for me to be associated with a such a competent and professional group of people who practice and teach hypnotherapy. For anyone thinking of a new/alternative/additional profession, or who is returning to education, the hypnotherapy course presented by Hypnotic World is highly recommended."



Samantha Mackenzie (Completed in October, 2013)

Samantha Mackenzie "After a successful retail management career from my early to mid twenties, I began a career in care in 2004. I have worked in all areas of care from clinical, community, secure units and residential care. I completed a foundation degree in 2007 in caring for children with complex and continuing health care needs and continued my studies with NVQ's 3 in health and social care and team leading. Recently I have completed a level 4 diploma in counselling and psychotherapy and this is where I discovered my interest and love of hypnotherapy. I have now successfully completed a diploma with the wonderful Hypnotic World!

I work with clients with learning disabilities and dementia and I am always trying to find ways to enhance communication and promote a person centred holistic care approach. Many of my clients are palliative care and therefore experience pain and discomfort and a difficulty in enjoying calmness and relaxation. I believe I can help to provide this with a combination of counselling and hypnotherapy. As well as serve other individuals with therapy that is tailored to their specific needs. I am passionate about care of the elderly and vulnerable adults and children. I feel that there is not enough provision for mental health towards end of life, during a time when it is more important than ever to ensure meaningful relationships and communication are available and accessible in order to sustain a sense of who we are.

I am married with a beautiful daughter whom I adore and 4 fabulous cats. I enjoy reading, cooking and arts and crafts."
