It has been an absolute privilege to train with Annette Brown School of Hypnotherapy. Annette is a fabulous teacher, who doesn’t just impart information, she guides, demonstrates, encourages and fills you with enthusiasm for the subject. Annette is highly skilled in hypnotherapy and her guidance and advise is invaluable. I have developed from a very apprehensive beginner to a newly qualified hypnotherapist; I genuinely do not believe that I would be as confident as I am now after training in any other school but Annette’s.

The course content was thorough and the teaching was excellent. Annette explained the content thoroughly and explicitly.

Are you glad you started your Hypnotherapy and NLP journey with the school, if so why?

Yes I am, I really was at a crossroads with my current career as the heart, drive and motivation had gone out of it. I came on the course from meeting Annette and was looking forward to it but did not expect my journey to turn out the way it has. I will now be starting my own Hypnotherapy Business and this is because I have discovered my new path, direction and a passion that has not been there for a long time . This is purely down to Annette’s ability to deliver her knowledge and passion and teach in a way that is informative and fun within the group . The course content was thorough and working materials of a high standard and the venue was lovely.

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

Yes as a woman in her later 50 s the course has kicked started that self ability that I can do anything I put my mind to …..as Annette says change your mind change your life . Ironic this is the year of the woman so well done Annette for having your belief and putting your school out there .

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

Hypnotherapy does have complex parts to it but it is broken down into bite sized chunks and help is there if needed .

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?

No problem in recommending this course and other courses which Annette will be running as this one was 10 months and I will be doing other add on ones at this school .

Are you glad you started your Hypnotherapy and NLP journey with the school, if so why?

This course with the Annette School of Hypnotherapy has been absolutely tremendous! To find precise words to convey what it has done for me would falling short of how I feel. Annette is the most amazing tutor I have ever come across and I have, over the years, completed many varied courses. The manual was so full of information it was extremely heavy! However, despite all the written information at our disposal, Annette still discussed everything in great detail. We did not just read the manual (or ever suffer death by powerpoint!) as her explanations and discussions of the topics were at length and nothing was left vague or questions unanswered.

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

I feel Annette has instilled a far greater confidence in me than I would have thought possible. It has also made me view life differently, as well as realising and understanding that with greater personal input just for myself, I can effect a positive change in me. If I can do that on a regular basis I can grow and achieve whatever I set out to do. Most people would like to feel that they can make a difference by helping someone and if I can do that, then I would feel a great sense of fulfilment.

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

I am not an academic and I greatly appreciated how the courses were constructed so that I was not left feeling inadequate or out of my depth. Sometimes when reading a text book one has to read and re-read information several times to assimilate it , but Annette has a wonderful way of expressing complicated and often intense detail in such a way as to make it seem so much easier to understand.

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?

Without hesitation. I am looking forward to more studies with the school and building on what is a wonderful foundation. Thank you, so much Annette!

I loved the format of the course. The theory was professional and well written but Annette’s experience and demonstrations were invaluable.

Are you glad you started your Hypnotherapy and NLP journey with the school, if so why?

I am over the moon I started the Hypnotherapy and NLP course because it has been an amazing course that has added so much to the therapies I can offer clients

Has the course reached your expectations?

The course reached much more than my expectations

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

I feel I have grown as a person spending time with likeminded people and learning from each other as well as the course.

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

I feel it was easy to understand and Annette made sure everyone understood each module before moving on making everything clear, I learn visually, and this can normally be an issue in some courses, but Annette makes so many visual tools it helped so much instead of reading and explanation.

Were the course materials to your expectations?

The course materials were beyond expectation I never needed to bring a pen if I didn’t want to or forgot mine.

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?

I have already recommended the course to friends and I am trying to encourage family members to enrol.

Are you glad you started your Hypnotherapy and NLP journey with the school, if so why?

When I first embarked on the course I was very enthusiastic and excited. However with my business commitments as was apprehensive also, worrying if I had taken too much on. Annette soon put me at ease and reassured me that I was investing my time in a career that was right for me. How right she was.

Annette has delivered the course in a way that is understanding yet challenging which for me is just right. Annette believes in you having the correct information, yet you must study and show dedication in addition to putting in as much practice as possible. In other words don’t expect to be spoon fed which is an empowering lesson as we will be running our own business therefore 100% effort is needed. I must add Annette puts in 150 % for every single pupil.

I know without a shadow of a doubt I chose the correct course and the correct tutor.

I feel I have the correct knowledge to start my own business and Annette even supports us by recommending and signposting us to other professionals that can help us set up things like websites and business cards.

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

I feel I have grown as an individual in addition to enhancing my ability in working as a team. I feel I could not have been on the course with a better group of people. We have encouraged and supported each other throughout assuring me that we are all in the correct profession (we all want to help others). This support has extended to a daily support system that Annette cleverly set up enabling us to communicate on a daily basis and we have all made full use of it.

I have grown alongside my colleagues whom I know will be lifelong friends. Annette creates an atmosphere that is relaxed, and no one is in fear of making mistakes as Annette so often points out we cannot fail we simply get feedback. I leave each weekend hypnotherapy course feeling invigorated and positive. I travel 4 hours one weekend a month for this course and on my journey home I reflect on the weekend. Each time I feel the same which is overwhelming happiness and excitement for the next weekend’s course. I think traveling so far speaks for itself…yes, it is worth it even with that dreaded M62 😊

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

I do believe nothing in life that is worth achieving is easy. Yet Annette has made the course so easy to digest with the information we get monthly. For me it is presented to a very high standard and Annette is dedicated to ensuring each and every one of us understands everything. Annette wants us to be the best we can, and her reputation is extremely important to her therefore we all want to continue with her high standards. I can say we and not just I as we all sing off the same hymn sheet as we have been taught to a high standard and we all want to continue in the same way. You never get a second chance with first impressions, so we must be the best we can.

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?

I would most certainly recommend Annette’s school of hypnotherapy although I feel very precious about her at times. In that I know her high standards and want to keep them to myself.

Annette is not just an exceptional teacher she is my friend, one who is always there to help and support. For me this training is just the start and Annette will continue to help us all improve and grow as time goes on. I wish her every success in the future.

Are you glad you started your Hypnotherapy and NLP journey with the school, if so why?

I am really glad I have started the Hypnotherapy and NLP Course as I started no knowing much at all and I’m not brimming with confidence and really excited about starting my own Hypnotherapy business

Has the course reached your expectations?

Yes, I would have never expected to receive the standard of tuition I have received.  Annette is a very good tutor, in fact she anticipates every aspect of the course and provides accordingly.  In between the course weekends Annette is always there at the end of phone when you are practicing. She is your biggest confidence booster and all you will need.

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

Yes, I have discovered more about myself on this journey than I thought possible.  And every month I grow and grow.

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

Annette is a really good tutor and delivers the sessions in a professional but well-ordered manner everything is support with the therapy with plenty of practice to underpin the learning.

Were the course materials to your expectations?

Yes, the materials required for the course are all provided, and where possible come to the tutees in a timely manner.  So that you attend the fully prepared for the session ahead.

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?

I am more than happy to recommend Annette Brown School of Hypnotherapy so each and every one I see who shows even the slightest interest, in fact I have already passed the school details on to friends who would like to attend the course

I can honestly say the last 8 months has flown by and can’t believe I am now completing my qualification.

Are you glad you started your Hypnotherapy and NLP journey with the school, if so why?

Yes.  I have now been involved with 2 of the groups from the school as I deferred a few months, and all have been so great to work with.  Annette builds rapport with everyone on a personal level. She is real and talks from experience which I love.

Has the course reached your expectations?

I have to be honest, yes it has.  Although I knew I wanted to train in this and eventually build a new career I never thought I would be at the level I am now and almost ready to start my own business! Within a year!  Annette has helped at every step, not just the teaching it has gone further than that, I feel I have had so much guidance going forward to enable me to start up on my own which is fantastic.

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

Absolutely yes.  As a nurse I meet all kinds of different people, but this has been different, it has been great to share experiences and learning with others on the course who have similar goals, reading scripts has built my confidence within and outside of the school.  I definitely feel as though I have more awareness and knowledge around people’s feelings and have more understanding of personal issues.

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

Yes, firstly, Annette will expand or think about new ways to interpret the teaching to Taylor each person’s learning needs.  There has been no ‘death by power point’ more ‘hands on’ practising the most important part getting used to delivering the scripts and working on our tones.  Annette has provided all of the paperwork referring to the course content to refer to whenever needed and has been great in providing lots of visual tools to help us understand the concepts.

Were the course materials to your expectations?

Yes, I feel I am prepared with all I need. And I am excited and ready to get started.

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?

Yes, I would.

Are you glad you started your Hypnotherapy and NLP journey with the school, if so why?

The course has made a huge difference to me and helped me delve into past issues and deal with them successfully. The person that started the course last year…is not the same person that is finishing the course. I am much calmer, more focussed and now have the drive to start up my own business using the skills I have learnt over the past 12months.

Has the course reached your expectations?

The course has surpassed my expectations. I wasn’t expecting to have worked on my own growth and how to deal with events in my own life. I was expecting to be able to help others, which I can now do adeptly. The combination of dealing with yourself and others makes this course a winner!

Do you feel you’ve grown as a person whilst being part of the course, if so why?

Annette Brown encourages all her students to be the best that they can be. She skilfully asks questions, drip feeds in relevant information and ensures that all her students are gently nudged to perform to a level that she is happy with.

Do you think the way it was taught was easy to understand, please expand?

Annette demonstrates all practical aspects of the course and therefore the students know what they are aiming for and aspiring to be.  As students we are encouraged to ask questions to further our knowledge. Annette is always willing to re-phrase or provide additional demonstrations if she isn’t confident that everyone has absorbed the information given.

Were the course materials to your expectations?

The course information is always easy to understand. There are brilliant visual charts, which contain the information in a brief, yet precise, manner.

Would you be happy to recommend the school to friends or family?

Absolutely! Annette Brown is amazing! The course is fantastic, and I am delighted that it was recommended to me.
