Testimonials for the Uncommon Hypnotherapy Home Study Course

Read some great feedback from our customers

"I've had many hypnotherapy teachers over the year and always left the course feeling that something was missing, prompting me to read endlessly on my own. You were the first one to make me sit up and say, "YES! This is the way.""

Meredith Easton Mendes

I loved this course. Thanks so much. Mark, I love your ease with words - your grace with language and your ability to hone in on just what your clients need. That's what I got most out of the course... how much more effective the process is when you throw away the script and listen to the client from the heart and head!

I've been doing intuitive readings for years via email and in person, and have had many clients tell me that something I said - or wrote - prompted tremendous change. Yet I still struggled to write a "perfect script" during my hypnosis sections and healing groups. Not any more. Thanks for opening my eyes to a "new way." I am inspired by you (and Roger) as much as by the material itself and have made it my goal to develop the same conversational facility in hypnotherapy that you have over the next year or so.

I've had many hypnotherapy teachers over the year and always left the course feeling that something was missing, prompting me to read endlessly on my own. You were the first one to make me sit up and say, "YES! This is the way." I'm working on my healing group flyer now and am inspired to move away from intuitive readings/alternative healing towards hypnosis largely thanks to all of the seeds that you planted. Kudos!

"I was delighted to find a course that gives a comprehensive explanation of what hypnosis is, with lots of supplementary materials to expand the course content, and with several demonstrations that show clearly the techniques being taught."

Monica McIntyre

My degree in Psychology is from the University of Tulsa, and I have been a Reiki Master Teacher since 2007.

I am as passionate about hypnosis and the unrealized potential of the mind as your practitioners, and I was delighted to find a course that gives a comprehensive explanation of what hypnosis is, with lots of supplementary materials to expand the course content, and with several demonstrations that show clearly the techniques being taught.

I look forward to reviewing the materials, both on-and off-line, and applying my new knowledge with my clients.

"I'm very pleased and very happy with the courses through Uncommon Knowledge. I found the courses so professional, interesting and informative."

Tammy

I have just completed the course, and have LOVED it. I found having finished the one before this (Uncommon Hypnosis), helped tremendously with completing this course more quickly than I anticipated, so that's great. It means I've retained the information from the first course, which this one reflected upon.

I'm very pleased and very happy with the courses through Uncommon Knowledge. I found the courses so professional, interesting and informative. Again, I love being able to watch the videos or listen to the MP3's, and pause or stop them to write notes, or go back over. I truly feel it's a better way to learn, as opposed to a classroom where even an outside noise/distraction can have students missing a vital piece of information. This way it's all here for me and I can go back over it whenever I like. Marvellous!!!

I commence my Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy tomorrow, so thank goodness I have all this wonderful background and information. I am positive it will help me to become an even better Clinical Hypnotherapist, that I can use in my Business: Tammy's Tarot and Healing (which is all about healing and helping people through guidance and assistance).. mostly Reiki/Reflexology, Tarot and shortly hypnotherapy. It's been a true pleasure connecting with Uncommon Knowledge. Thank you.

This story came from Tammy who is from Australia.

"The resources seemed endless, I got so much more than I expected."

Allen Anderson

I was hesitant at first over the cost of the course. After taking the plunge, I was impressed by the amount of material made available to me. The resources seemed endless, I got so much more than I expected. I'm looking forward to the next one!

This story came from Allen Anderson who is from Indiana, USA.

"Your course was a great refresher and reminder of many tools and skills of therapeutic practise along with some new (to me) simple and practical ones as well."

Susan Crozier

Thank you all at Uncommon Knowledge for a very well produced, valuable, enlightening, and inspiring course. As a practising Clinical Hypnotherapist and Naturopath, your course was a great refresher and reminder of many tools and skills of therapeutic practise along with some new (to me) simple and practical ones as well. I also enjoy the tone, generosity, and integrity of your company with so many free and helpful tips and downloads. I will continue to spread the word amongst my colleagues and friends. I also feel so much more confidence with the technical side of doing an online course. Your website and structures were so easy for me to 'get around'. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

"This course has opened my eyes to self-improvement in a new way"

Andrew McAuley

Wow... what to say first. I suppose thank you! I've done this course over the period of a week and what a week it has been. Here is just the tip of my iceberg:

(1) I never realised what level of physical and mental stress I was operating at daily until I started to go deeper into a self-hypnosis practice (four days so far... feeling very good).

(2) I was previously helping a friend with PTSD to sleep as she was incredibly sensitive to distractions during the night (neighbours, snoring, things in the house that go bump [or creak])... but on a nightly basis. Thanks to this course, and the confidence to expand my boundaries, I gave her a metaphorical story about a cute cat being terrified of the mailman, feeling bangs through the floor, and sounds from outside... and then there was an wise owl on the windowsill saying, "What are you doing?" and... well, not enough space for the rest of the story, but needless to say it's had amazing effect so far, three restful nights sleep with no assistance.

(3) This course has opened my eyes to self-improvement in a new way... where you really get to say, "Who do I want to be? How do I want to react?" For me, I'm starting by choosing to connect to people I've too easily disconnected from and designing the habits that keep me in touch with them out of genuine interest and care.

And just to top it off, my sense of humour flows quicker and I'm finding my creative mind is giving me new ways to look at things I've already experienced, things I've yet to experience in the physical form, and even things I'm experiencing in the face of strong emotion.

So, thank you Mark, thank you Roger and the excellent team you're working with... this is an excellent course, even for the non-practitioner. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who was focused on delivering therapeutic results safely and effectively.

"This knowledge and these skills will be so good to have, not just for my work as a psychotherapist but also for me personally and in my relationships."

Ineke Rienks

This is one of the most useful, enjoyable, interesting, and fun courses I have taken in my life. And I have done a lot of studying. This knowledge and these skills will be so good to have, not just for my work as a psychotherapist but also for me personally and in my relationships. The structure and build-up of the course are great, and I enjoyed the lectures very much. Nice to have a transcript as well. So thank you!

"I found that the hypnosis skills I learned help me treat clients on a deeper level."

Jane Giles

I found the Uncommon Hypnotherapy very interesting and well presented. As a Professional Counsellor, I found that the hypnosis skills I learned help me treat clients on a deeper level. Many counselling skills help on a practical and cognitive level, but hypnosis addresses the spontaneous 'feeling'. Which results in a far more thorough, and complete, holistic treatment.

This story came from Jane Giles who is a Professional Counsellor from Australia.

"I always love taking your courses!"

I always love taking your courses! I find them invaluable for assisting me to truly understand complex concepts which in turn assists me to communicate those concepts to clients. It's amazing the shifts a client can have prior to hypnosis just through basic education and building rapport. Thank you Mark & the Uncommon Knowledge team. Not only are your courses first rate, your customer service is exceptional!

This story came from Victoria who is a Clinical Hypnotherapist from Sydney, Australia.

"I really like how Mark and Roger have structured the program, with lots of reading material, simple and easy to understand explanations."

I love the Uncommon Hypnotherapy course. I really like how Mark and Roger have structured the program, with lots of reading material, simple and easy to understand explanations, and very useful video demonstrations. What I like most about them is that there are no frills, I find them to be very integrous and the expertise in their work and intent comes across. I have recommended their courses to many… Absolutely worth it.

This story came from Ashlesh Rao who is a NLP Trainer and Coach from Bangalore, India.

"You've helped me understand the thought and reasons behind the tools and techniques — not just what to do, but why."

I was certified in 2000 by a school that taught the "National Guild of Hypnotists" (NGH) agenda. I enjoyed the classes but felt that much of the training was too close to stage hypnotist techniques.

During one class, the guest instructor used a different approach — a permissive induction, similar to the techniques you teach. I fell into a much deeper trance than I had when our regular instructors used a more authoritarian approach. Instead of feeling badgered and intimidated into a trance, this guest instructor seduced me into a trance. In fact, I felt myself going so deeply that I pulled back a bit, apprehensive about unchartered territory.

At the end of the entire course, even though I had a certificate in hand that said I was a certified hypnotherapist, I knew that my training had just begun. Since then, I've focused my study on those "Eriksonian" techniques that my school merely touched upon but intrigued me the most.

My never-ending quest brought me to your online school via your sister site– hypnosisdownloads.com. (I had already found that site to be a wealth of information.) I've really enjoyed your course — Mark and Jill are great teachers. You've helped me understand the thought and reasons behind the tools and techniques — not just what to do, but why.

I'll still be learning from your study materials for some time, as I go over this information again and again. I like your multi-media approach to teaching — videos, audio files, written materials. In particular, I think the "Hypnosis Unwrapped" DVDs were the cornerstone of the course.

Much of the other materials emphasized and expanded on these videos. Actually being able to watch Jill and Mark teach classes, plus intros and summaries from Roger, was worth the price of the course.

This story came from James Stewart from Salt Lake City, USA.

"I can step into my future with confidence."

I thoroughly enjoyed the Hypnosis Unwrapped Course as it felt like gaps were filled in and it was comforting and satisfying having the missing pieces come together, just like completing that puzzle and finding those last bits. I guess I am… well I know I am, totally inspired by all the teaching you all impart at UNK and now know I can step into my future with confidence. Thank-you all so much :-)

This story came from Rose Morgan who is a Hypnotherapist from Christchurch, New Zealand.

"New concepts about the role of hypnotic induction really enriched my way of thinking as a whole."

The course presentation very integrated, compact, could always refer back to material before or after sessions, very challenging at times for me – out of my depth at times, especially after sessions.

It gave me an opportunity to learn much about myself moving out of comfort zone in the first instance and taking a metha-stance to understand my responses [in relation to my basic needs, for example].

The course was far more than just content – or about the 'how to' do hypnosis for me. That in itself has been very useful and fulfilling of course, but new concepts about the role of [self] hypnotic induction really enriched my way of thinking as a whole, e.g. on my personal spiritual meditation level; as well as understanding the significance of language [metaphor, narrative, reframing, prescribing of symptom, double bind] in therapy, and checking on hypnotic content in everyday conversations. I also tried self hypnosis during a migraine attack and minimised the irritating light flashes in my eyes.

The 'know how' expertise, I'm sure will continue with practice and I am currently reviewing the course holistically to integrate into my therapy practice further.

This story came from Pieter G Spies who is a Senior Social Work Practitioner from Wales.

"Thank you for a lovely course and your enthusiasm in presenting this material."

This course has good structure and clear building blocks to enable participants to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to get started with hypnosis. It was also an eye opener to learn that even shallow trance states can be considered as useful in hypnosis and that repetition would eventually pay off.

I was not very active during conference calls and online chat mostly because of the time difference. I had to join in at 3.30 am from Adelaide Australia (thus getting up at 3am). Therefore I enjoyed having the recorded conferences and I have listened to them all! I would like to get into the rewind technique and depression training as well, however will first want to implement and condition myself in basic hypnosis. You will sure hear from me again!'

Thank you for a lovely course and your enthusiasm in presenting this material.

This story came from Louis van der Bank from Australia.

"Learning these things in this way has anchored it far more in my mind than any other readings I have done."

I specifically enjoyed how each session was presented in the way they were as to basically tie it all in together. Each session I attended we got a recap somewhat of the previous one and when ahead with more information.

It really seems simple common sense as to how people react to different things in life but yet we are all the same and just knowing some of the psychology of our unconscious minds works, the emotion, the resistance, the needs. Learning these things in this way has anchored it far more in my mind than any other readings I have done, including some therapy sessions I have received in the past.

This story came from Lynda Curlette who is from Nanton Alberta, Canada.

"This is different than most books and courses that I've seen. Those typically tape a seminar and sell it on a DVD, or they'll write books that are terse and difficult to comprehend or use in real world situations."

I would like to say that this hypnosis home study course is very well done. You can tell just looking at it that someone took a lot of time focusing on every little detail.

This is different than most books and courses that I've seen. Those typically tape a seminar and sell it on a DVD, or they'll write books that are terse and difficult to comprehend or use in real world situations.

This story came from Dan Weber who is from Denver, Colorado, USA

"Both courses were easy to follow and very thorough"

This course and the Rewind course have been life-altering, both on a personal level as well as professional. I began using the Rewind technique on several of my clients before vacation and they experienced immediate and rather profound results. I look forward to following up with them on my return to work. Both courses were easy to follow and very thorough. I appreciate the teaching methods UK employs. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
