I applied to be part of the course with no knowledge of Hypnotherapy. I was naive about the content and truly believed it was going to be all practical. After the first class session, I was amazed at how much was involved with the academic side, but then to actually practice on a fellow student, putting them into trance, was fantastic. For me, the academic forecast was daunting, but with the full support of Betty George and Paul, I managed to write good essays and surprisingly, my marks were alongside, if not better, than other professionals within my group. I was just a working-class mum/grandmother looking for a profession that stands me out from the crowd and to take along my future path. Betty was always attentive, eager and so forward with her knowledge at every class session. Betty’s ability to capture my curiosity, helping me to nurture the information has been outstanding. There were jokes and giggles, honesty and frankness, and I always felt important. We were a team. I never felt there was any rudeness or disapproving language. The classes were always welcoming, warm and jolly. In my opinion, the course is phenomenal, the tutors were so enthusiastic and willing you on, all the time. We all became friends, being supportive to one another. Betty is a wonderful, caring, knowledgeable person. I am privileged to know her and to have as a future colleague and friend.
