Celebrate Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy!

“The hypnotherapy training in Costa Rica was exceptional and the teachings deeply healing.  The clinical trainings were among the best I have ever

done." (Kali Munro, RSW - Toronto)

"I was so impressed with this Costa Rica training. It was a “game changer” for me. I was inspired to make major changes in my life and business, and will always be

grateful.  The majestic beauty all added to the wonderful experience." (Naureen Shah, Coach, Pakistan)

"This training not only inspired me to become a greater social worker but inspired my soul to move forward in directions I never thought were possible."  (Leigh Simpson, MSW, Toronto)

“Regardless of the amazing hypnotherapy training I received in Costa Rica, I just became a better therapist. Since returning to my practice, I have been able to help my clients in

ways that I was not able to before." (Terry Ketteringham, Addictions Counsellor, British Columbia)

I was transformed personally and professionally and now have a level of confidence doing this work that I have not yet experienced in my 29 years of being a therapist!
(Rebecca Brownwell, RP, Canada)
