I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I am a professional speaker and trainer in business and personal development and have a good idea of what is required in order to ensure all goes well. I found this hypnotherapy course to be very well prepared and delivered. The content was excellent, with plenty of hands on involvement and practice which took us to the most amazing places and experiences. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. For anyone wishing to learn one of the best therapy methods available. This is the one to do. The facilitators at Alpha Hypnosis have an amazing range of experiences and success in hypnotherapy, and to my mind, are the only people to train with in New Zealand.

This course is a must!
