"After a 2 days certification I was convinced to step into this amazing journey- the 8 months diploma- becoming a hypnotherapist and I'm glad I did it!

I'm beyond grateful I got to be trained by both the master Chris !

They have an inspiring and flexible approach in all he does do! Theory time and practice one are well balanced so that I got to understand through experience the techniques taught.

Chris, also author of "The 3 brains Theory- how to finally understand..." explains in depth how one reacts according to one's dominant brain in various situations, this helps a lot understanding one another inside and out of the therapy.

Moreover what I love about the training they offer is the familial atmosphere they spread and the way they still both look after me long after the training is over sharing all tools for me to be thriving in my activity!

Many thanks to you!
