Dear Nigel

Thank you very much from all of my heart for the knowledge you shared, for your passion for the subject you teach, for yours and your lovely family hospitality.  I can highly recommend taking a hypnotherapy diploma course with Leeds Hypnotherapy Academy.

Our small and cosy group of 6 were meeting once a month and it was always enjoyable, entertaining and useful.  I felt quite spoiled by lovely lunches cooked every time we met.  We had lots of detailed explanations, demonstrations and practice with each other.  Nigel was always very helpful and encouraging, very pleasant to be around and always ready to help even outside of the course.

Our lessons were always good fun, relaxing and felt very beneficial.  Personally, for me, the amount of knowledge I received felt a bit overwhelming at the beginning, but with time everything started to make sense and clicked into the right boxes making me feel more and more confident in using my knowledge with my clients.

Thank you very much for everything.

I felt lucky to be your student and get to know your lovely family.

Brilliant course, enjoyed from start to finish.

I learned so much not only about hypnotherapy but also how to improve my skills and confidence as a dental hygienist by communicating and understanding people better.

Nigel, the tutor at Leeds Hypnotherapy Academy is very informative and supportive.

Definitely recommend this course to anyone wishing to increase their knowledge in hypnotherapy.

Thank you Nigel and Alan - you are an inspiration and I will miss being a student.

Studying with Leeds Hypnotherapy Academy has been a great experience.  The notes and classes are comprehensive and Nigel has a wealth of knowledge that he shares.  the size of the classes are small, allowing for each student to have the opportunity to give and receive input and participate.

The location of the class is delightful and students are made to feel welcome and comfortable. 


Given the price of this course, it is incredibly good value for money.

I would highly recommend the Leeds Hypnotherapy Academy.
