MT, Carnoustie

"I’ve loved this course from start to finish. The course structure was clear, comprehensive and also provided us with advice to setting up a business and offering a 6-month follow-up support. Definitely the best decision I’ve made, as the support was amazing and he was always available. The course itself was very practical and I’d say that Harry is the best mentor by far. Worth every penny." 

JT, Dundee

"Thoroughly enjoyed the learning. Harry adapted the course well so that, despite lockdown at some points, we were able to still have a full experience. Love the fact that it’s an Integrated Hypnotherapy qualification giving lots of tools to support clients." 

AG, Bath

"As a hypnotherapist I have followed the recent online training led by Harry. I was impressed by the quality of his training and would recommend his course either in person or online."
