Feedback from some of our students
"There was lots of variety in the classroom; I was never bored or switched off!"
What I'd say about the structure and style of the LHA training is that I found it well organised, intense but not overloaded. There was lots of variety in the classroom; I was never bored or switched off!By the end, it all fitted together and I understood how carefully and intelligently it was devised. I found the interest in me and my development really genuine and if everyone is treated the same as I was, well that’s a real credit to the Academy.
"Lorraine, the course tutor, proved to be highly experienced and intuitively shared that experience throughout training and demonstrations with guest clients which is particularly valuable."
The small class sizes allows for really good interaction with both the tutor and other students which makes for a feeling of inclusion and positive participation. The 5 day module structure with the break over the weekend was particularly beneficial as this allows you to process the learning from your first 2 days so that overall it does not feel too intensive.Lorraine, the course tutor, proved to be highly experienced and intuitively shared that experience throughout training and demonstrations with guest clients which is particularly valuable. I was also impressed with her willingness to share her experience and knowledge of the practicalities of dealing with clients from a both therapeutic and business perspective.
"I learned the soft skills of being a hypnotherapist, connecting with people, choosing the right approach, questioning and being comfortable and confident..."
I chose to train at London Hypnotherapy Academy because of the variety of the modules. I was looking for independent courses in CBT, NLP and hypnotherapy and this combined everything. The separation of the modules work. I learned the soft skills of being a hypnotherapist, connecting with people, choosing the right approach, questioning and being comfortable and confident which I certainly needed.
"I had been toying with the idea of signing up for two years and my only regret is that I took so long to decide..."
I really can't recommend this course highly enough. I had been toying with the idea of signing up for two years and my only regret is that I took so long to decide. The course is very well structured and informative and Lorraine and Abbey are very friendly and supportive. The class sizes are small and well balanced and there are demonstrations and plenty of hands on experience. Lorraine is very professional and clearly puts a great deal of work and planning into each of the modules.

"Lorraine was excellent at sharing all her wisdom and experience..."
Lorraine was excellent at sharing all her wisdom and experience and always keen to do her utmost to help. An added bonus is that I met some truly lovely people that I have stayed connected to!
"The hands-on learning structure is so helpful and is practiced in each class but without any pressure..."
There are so many positive aspects of the learning structure and style of LHA that enhanced my education. On my first day I was extremely nervous but realising students of all levels were in the class helped to ease my nerves. The hands-on learning structure is so helpful and is practiced in each class but without any pressure. Tutors and instructors are extremely knowledgeable, experienced and committed to helping the students learning the material.
"LHA delivers exactly as it sells itself..."
LHA delivers exactly as it sells itself. I would also add that when you graduate you truly do feel experienced and confident enough to start charging clients.
"The small class sizes allow for really good interaction with both the tutor and other students which makes for a feeling of inclusion and positive participation..."
Having looked at several courses from different providers I chose LHA as the range of methods and approaches offered is very comprehensive. The small class sizes allow for really good interaction with both the tutor and other students which makes for a feeling of inclusion and positive participation.

"Everyone definitely feels that they have been heard, supported and given a personalised learning experience..."
I would recommend the London Hypnotherapy Academy as an excellent training experience for anyone who wants to gain the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence in order to go ahead and set up as a hypnotherapist.
I benefited from the small class sizes with plenty of individual attention from the course tutor and opportunities to practice the skills I had been taught in a supportive environment.
Lorraine, our tutor, really makes sure that we understand how and why particular skills and approaches work and when to choose them in a therapeutic environment. She is intuitive both in terms of hands-on therapeutic knowledge and understanding and also too in terms of what each individual student she is teaching needs in order to do well.

"Lorraine makes time to discuss individual concerns with her students..."
The London Hypnotherapy Academy course covers a range of different methods & approaches, which is essential for successfully working with clients, as no two are the same! One of the most important things that Lorraine, the course tutor, teaches throughout, is the importance of building rapport with clients, & how to utilise the information they give effectively, which is the basis for all good therapy.
The modular design of the course means that you meet a whole variety of other students from diverse backgrounds; & at the same time, class sizes are small, meaning that each student receives attention when necessary. Lorraine makes time to discuss individual concerns with her students, & I felt very much supported by her, both in the constructive feedback I received for each of my case studies, & with any issues that arose with my volunteer clients.
"You can see Lorraine is very committed to the training and to each individual student."
There’s no doubt Lorraine has extensive knowledge of the subject taught. Her therapeutic experience provided an extra level of information, which I always appreciated. You can see Lorraine is very committed to the training and to each individual student. She always has time to talk to them before the class, during a break or after the training has finished.
"It is hard work, but extremely rewarding, & after each weekend of training I came away with further skills & a renewed sense of confidence..."
"This is a very "hands on" course, with plenty of opportunity for practising in a supported environment, and extremely valuable demonstrations of hypnotherapy with real clients.
Lorraine has a wealth of experience as a practicing therapist. She is very good at prompting students to use their own initiative, which really enables everyone to explore the choice of different approaches to hypnotherapy, & when to use these appropriately for maximum effect.
Lorraine sets high standards for her students, in order to produce the best therapists, whilst still being supportive of their individual needs & circumstances. It is hard work, but extremely rewarding, & after each weekend of training I came away with further skills & a renewed sense of confidence. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, & would recommend it to anyone looking to train as a hypnotherapist.
"Lorraine’s passion and enthusiasm is clear from the first minute of the first day. .."
Undertaking the LHA Hypnotherapy training has been a truly life-enriching undertaking. I started off wanting to learn more about a topic in which I had a long-term interest; but ended up improving my confidence, my resilience and learning a number of techniques which I can use not just in hypnotherapy but also in my personal and professional life. The LHA has taught me much more than the basic skills that you need to just hypnotise people. I’ve also developed the skills to read people, to understand their real meaning, to ask the right question, and to say things in the right way to get the best reception. Lorraine’s passion and enthusiasm is clear from the first minute of the first day. I wonder when you will make the decision to contact the LHA and take the first step in your hypnotherapy journey.
"I found the class demonstrations with actual clients particularly beneficial..."
I enjoyed the variety of the training both in terms of the different techniques and specialisms learnt, and the numerous learning approaches. I found the class demonstrations with actual clients particularly beneficial, and there were plenty of opportunities to practise with other class members. The small class sizes ensured that everyone received individual attention, and the relaxed and informal approach ensured a positive group dynamic. I started practising as soon as I graduated, and feel the training has given me an excellent foundation on which to build my practice."
"It has been a successful choice for me as the class sizes were perfect, the teaching was clear and Lorraine always paced the classes well..."
When I was looking for a Hypnotherapy course the amount of choice seemed overwhelming and I found myself confused by the jargon and various styles of teaching the subject. I wanted something that would be both straightforward and broad in its content and this was what attracted me to the London Hypnotherapy Academy course. It has been a successful choice for me as the class sizes were perfect, the teaching was clear and Lorraine always paced the classes well.
Lorraine has a good understanding of individuality of her students and their needs. She uses a range of teaching styles and methods and the overall atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable. Lorraine is also very informed on practice management. The resources that were included on this subject were especially useful to me and have given me confidence to move into practice as well understanding the importance of marketing. This was something I didn’t know I needed when I started out looking for a course but it has been especially valuable to me.
"One of my favourite things about this course was the ability to practise each one of the techniques with my colleagues in a safe environment..."
One of my favourite things about this course was the ability to practise each one of the techniques with my colleagues in a safe environment in class. Another thing I really liked about this course was the diversity of areas within hypnotherapy which were covered, which allowed me to choose the area which was most suited to my personal style.
Last but not least, the amount of support I had during the course and even after I finished the classes was great. And I couldn’t finish this testimonial without thanking Lorraine so much for her effort and dedication and her amazing classes that she put together and all the amazing guests we had during this course. Thank you!
"I enjoyed the course so much I didn't want it to finish..."
I chose Lorraine's course as I liked the idea of a small group and the content of the modules was excellent. I was certainly not disappointed! Lorraine has so much good experience and is a friendly, helpful tutor and sessions with volunteer clients were particularly useful and informative. We were encouraged to practice on friends and family from very early in the course which was good advice as it really builds your confidence and the practical work within the modules was great experience. I enjoyed the course so much I didn't want it to finish but I am looking forward to completing my case studies and HPD and starting up in practice as a Hypnotherapist.
"I felt very comfortable with the lovely group of students and felt Lorraine encouraged us while we practised with each other..."
I liked the modules. I felt very comfortable with the lovely group of students and felt Lorraine encouraged us while we practised with each other and was good at listening to us and correcting/altering any confusions or misconceptions. Lorraine was our main tutor and was very knowledgeable, experienced and committed. It's also nice to have different tutors from time to time and Annabel, who taught in the life coaching module was very good too. Lorraine was a very good trainer who explained ideas well and was encouraging. The students were lovely and supported each other really well.
"Lorraine is a dedicated and enthusiastic tutor, she teaches from experience and has an easy and informal style..."
I have recently completed my Hypnotherapy diploma training at the London Hypnotherapy Academy and am now launching my own practice in Brighton! I chose this course as I felt confident that I would receive a good balance between learning and practicing and get close up attention from the tutor. The small group size was a definite plus point, there was no hiding at the back and there was opportunity for plenty of lively discussion and mutual support.
The syllabus was well defined and broken down into manageable and easily understandable sections which then fitted together to provide a thorough and in depth knowledge of the whole subject. The assignments were challenging but manageable (even for someone working full time and with other commitments) and guidance and support offered throughout. Lorraine is a dedicated and enthusiastic tutor, she teaches from experience and has an easy and informal style. I wholeheartedly recommend choosing this course if you wish to qualify with a deep understanding of the subject, great client skills and, very importantly, the marketing know-how and confidence to get your business up and running."
"I really enjoyed the course and feel I have learned a lot..."
The course was very friendly, full of content and with lots of practical experience which you definitely need. I really enjoyed the course and feel I have learned a lot. I have the confidence to set up in practice and am enjoying case studies as the practical work we covered was so good.

The training was very thorough and clear. It was not formal or set out in the classroom style which made the students feel more at ease. The structure of the modules covered everything in detail as I expected. All the tutors delivered in depth knowledge of the subject being taught. I really enjoyed the experience and the class size was the right size for interacting and practising the new techniques. I have learnt many new skills on the course. I would certainly recommend any potential trainees who are interested in starting a hypnotherapy business.
"Lorraine is very good at explaining the course content..."
Lorraine is very good at explaining the course content and very supportive with practical work; very friendly and has a great rapport with students.

The class is small and friendly and there is loads of opportunity for practical learning in a supportive environment and we are encouraged to explore and develop our own individual 'style'
"I felt clear at all times about what was happening, what was expected of me..."
Your teaching (Lorraine) is just great; calm, thoughtful and knowledgeable. You keep things light but always take questions seriously and provide full and understandable explanations. The 'live' demo was of huge value. I felt clear at all times about what was happening, what was expected of me. It felt safe and calm and was a great learning environment.
"Absolutely loved the course..."
So much more comprehensive than I expected. Absolutely loved the course!"

"I would honestly recommend Lorraine's courses..."
I really enjoyed Lorraine's pragmatic approach to teaching which was really engaging and thought provoking. Her obvious knowledge of the subject and her real life experience with clients really brought the topics to life and filled me with confidence to use the techniques with clients. I found her exercises around business development particularly useful and practical. I would honestly recommend Lorraine's courses.
"Lorraine's training exercises added a very insightful dimension in several ways..."
Lorraine's training exercises added a very insightful dimension in several ways. Her training style is clear, informative and honest, posing thought-provoking arguments to keep delegates challenged and actively engaged in the subject matter.
Here is an article by a former student about her training experience. She is now a qualified and practising therapist.
"I came into hypnotherapy as a bit of a novice. I had read about hypnotherapy and watched some videos online to get a feel for it.
Undertaking Continual Professional Development is a commitment that professional therapists are expected to make in the years following their graduation. Many attend classroom training in order maintain and update their skills and knowledge. This helps them to continue to deliver effective and professional therapy to clients.
