The most important part of the course was learning about real life case studies and actually practicing hypnosis.

"I found the theory really interesting, however, the practice of hypnosis was invaluable and made me a much more confident practitioner.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course - every single aspect without exception. Lauren is not only an outstanding practitioner, she is also, without doubt, one of the most supportive and knowledgeable tutors I've ever had. Her relaxed yet assertive approach kept us focused and engaged throughout the course. Discussion was encouraged and students felt valued in sharing their experiences. I feel confident and excited about starting my own practice and I cannot rate the course highly enough. Thank you so much."

"I've enjoyed the entire course and feel that the mix between practical and academic study has been perfect.
I was nervous that the course might be too academic or difficult to pursue whilst working full-time, but the balance of self and class-based study is perfect. Absolutely great course."

"The Fylde Academy of Hypnotherapy HPD course is excellent. I am so glad that I chose this course out of the available options.
I was impressed at first by the course syllabus which covers all the main topics required within a modern and professional hypnotherapeutic approach, and by Lauren Kolb, the course tutor, who was very approachable and professional.
The course itself lived up to expectations. I found all of the weekend sessions interesting, engaging and the journey through the course takes you from an inexperienced novice to professional hypnotherapist. It has been amazing to look back and see how far I have developed.
The course is an excellent grounding both in theory and practical application for emerging able to confidently and competently practice as a professional hypnotherapist with a modern and effective approach.
Lauren was a professional, engaging tutor with a nice dose of humour and rooted in her own professional practice from which she draws to illustrate the course and which I found invaluable to gain insight into hypnotherapy in professional practice.
I would thoroughly recommend the course to any aspiring hypnotherapists or those wanting to develop their skills and knowledge. "
"This course has been a life changing experience in many ways. Not just for my career change but also in the knowledge I have gained, the people I have met and what you take away with you is a real sense of being ready to practice as a clinical hypnotherapist! This is perhaps the most important thing of all, in that our course tutor supported us in a way that was intuitive to our individual needs and as a group prepared us for work in this exciting field. I would do it all over again!"
"Good pacing – topics and recap, inclusive of individual’s thoughts and queries."
"The whole course has been brilliant. I would not really change anything. I really can't pick it apart and say one bit was better than another; as a group we all enjoyed it thoroughly."
"The practical experience gained on the course is invaluable. Lauren is a good tutor, she is very positive and her guidelines are easy to follow."
"I can’t thank you enough for teaching me Clinical Hypnotherapy, and whilst there was a wide range of information that could be challenging, it was brilliant! Where did the past year disappear to I ask myself.
I felt you were personable and showed blanket acceptance to everyone, and you came across very genuine, real and true.
You really are a truly inspirational tutor for hypnotherapy, and as a person, and I’d recommend Fylde Hypnotherapy Training to anyone who’s interested in either adding another string to their bow of therapies, or forging a new career!
I’m so happy that you decided to become a supervisor, I’ll be happy to spend supervisory time with you and as group supervisory sessions.
Once again, thank you so much for everything."
"It was extremely useful that the tutor had her own practice as she used examples (done by respecting confidentiality) to illustrate topics. The tutor has excellent knowledge of the areas covered which made the course very interesting and informative."
"I felt that I have progressed a long way from the start of the course and have benefited greatly from it in my development to become a hypnotherapist. The course content and experience was excellent both as a learning experience and in preparing for professional practice."
