Meet Our Past Students
Past students have included therapists, counsellors, social workers, hypnotherapists, psychotherapists, nurses, psychologists, doctors and members of the public wanting to learn how to hypnotise people in a caring and respectful way. After training, many of our graduates have set up as hypnotherapists in private practice or utilise their new hypnosis skills as an adjunct to their present work within the caring professions. Many of our students are already working as therapists, healthcare professionals and professional communicators and bring a wide range of skills and experience to the courses, so you will also benefit from the expertise of your peers and their diverse range of professional skills and experience if you enrol on any of our training programs.
Many of our graduates have now become authorities in the field and include some of the most respected names in hypnotherapy and NLP. Igor Ledochowski called his approach ‘Conversational Hypnosis’ and created international courses, books and CDs, Hugh Willbourn became an author and co-wrote about self-help therapy with Paul McKenna, Phil Parker created ‘The Lightening Process’, Joe Griffin created the influential ‘Human Givens’ approach, Adam Eason set up his own hypnosis school, Ian McDermott set up the ‘ITS’ NLP training company and became a best selling author, Phyllis Alden became president of the British Society of Experimental and Clinical Hypnosis, Mark Tyrell set up ‘Uncommon Therapy’ running courses and selling therapy downloads, Dan Jones has written many books on hypnotherapy, Peter and Mary Lawrence founded ‘The British Institute of Hypnotherapy’, Kerin Webb wrote the acclaimed ‘Language Pattern Bible’, Andrew Austin wrote ‘The Rainbow Machine’ NLP book and created ‘Integral Eye Movement Therapy’ – and there are many more success stories… and they all started their hypnosis training with us and with Stephen Brooks as their personal trainer – that’s quite an achievement!
When asked what kind of people make great hypnotherapists, Stephen Brooks replied that there are two kinds of therapists, good ones and great ones. The good ones fix problems, the great ones transform lives, and to be a truly great hypnotherapist, you have to communicate from the heart, not from the head.
