- Shayne Rice, Nottingham

 From the teaching to the syllabus and course material, I found the course thorough, professional and highly enjoyable.  There was much opportunity to discuss the material and practice new skills with the tutor and the group so there was a good balance of theory and practice.  The best course I've ever taken! 

Helen Falconer, Nottingham

This course was a revelation, I learned a huge amount across a wide range of concepts. Robert McKinnon really practices what he preaches through his small group practical sessions with open discussion gently led by him. An excellent tutor with great results! A great foundation for a future in Mind Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy
