Students comments from past and present who have undertaken the professional hypnotherapy course with Dr Bateman

At the clinic we can tell you exactly what an excellent course in Clinical & Therapeutical Hypnosis we run for students. Our online prospectus will explain that but we would like you to read what some of our past students has said about the course so you may judge for yourself our standards of tuition.

In July 2016, I successfully completed Dr Lyn Bateman's Professional Training in Clinical and Medical Hypnosis. I found the course to be very informative and interactive. What I liked about the course was that we were taught by Dr Lyn on a ratio of 1:2, which meant that myself and a fellow student received more input from the tutelage of a very experienced and practicing professional hypnotherapist. Lyn was honest, approachable and professional throughout the course. I have always had an interest in hypnotherapy and I am glad that I was able to study with Lyn. The course material is very useful and instructive, allowing the student to obtain a solid foundation in the art and practice of hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I really enjoyed the course. Lyn is a very interesting character. He draws upon 38 years of clinical hypnotherapy experience and that is evident in the training provided. I hope to use the skills and knowledge that I have gained in helping people to optimise their health and wellbeing. Thank you Lyn. Andrew Lidyard (Registered Mental Health Nurse)


I compared many different options and courses before I enrolled on Professor Lyn’s course. The course fees were very competitive compared with other providers; However, the most important distinction for me was the fact that Lyn’s professional training course is accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Council.

I had been so used to many and varied professional training courses, in my middle/senior job role of 23 years in the Civil Service. It was very refreshing that Lyn’s courses were informal. There is a well-balanced aspect of formal learning, and discussing, informally, how each of our own, individual, experiences contributes towards self-development as a professional hypnotherapist.

What was particularly useful and appreciative for me was Lyn telling us about his own initial hypnotherapy training and ongoing learning and experiences as a professional hypnotherapist. Lyn gave me much wisdom and insight into hypnotherapy training and advice as to when I decided to become a professional hypnotherapist.

I studied to the Advanced Level Diploma. Currently, I am, currently, considering going onto the Bachelors and PhD Hypnotherapy training levels. I wish everyone success with their hypnotherapy training.

I was recommended Lyn’s course by a good friend of mine as he had previously trained and qualified with Lyn a few years ago. As a qualified Psychotherapist I wanted to enhance my practice and knowledge and had a very keen interest in Hypnotherapy for a few years prior to starting the course with Lyn. In my opinion, Lyn is a very good teacher, skilled practitioner and can draw on almost forty years experience and knowledge in the field of Clinical Hypnotherapy as well as Stage Hypnotism. Lyn draws on this experience and knowledge when explaining both the practical and theoretical aspects of the course. The course is well structured and the pace of the course seemed to be well thought out to suite the individual student. If, on occasions I didn’t understand any aspect of the course material Lyn was always happy to answer any questions I had and actively encouraged my to ask questions in order to aid my learning. Lyn’s help and guidance not only helped me to qualify as a Clinical Hypnotherapist but has given me the confidence to set up my own private practice which I will start in the coming weeks.

Hi Lyn,
Please find enclosed my testimonial for your course:
If you are seriously interested in starting and developing a career in professional hypnotherapy then I strongly suggest to be tutored by Dr. Bateman. I had previously been on a well renown course and was left disillusioned by the lack of in depth training and material. Lyn's course focuses on teaching every important facet of hypnosis and therapy, which has been learnt, researched, developed and honed through nearly forty years in a successful career. He teaches in a close
environment of two or one to one, so that fullattention and practice is paid towards each student. His passion and enthusiasm for the subject, not to mention his drive and genuine attitude has made a very strong inspirational impact. The content of his material is second to none; as he includes and explains the theory and mechanics behind clinical and medical hypnotherapy, whilst also including applicable techniques drawn from his additional involvement with stage hypnosis. His experiential advice and guidance, spoken from outside of the course materialis worth its own weight, as you would not find it included anywhere else. I truly believe you'll be hard pressed to find a more coherent course, taught by a more knowledgeable or skilled practitioner, anywhere. A life-long record of providing fantastic results as a hypnotherapist is testament to this.
 All the best, Chris

Hi Lyn,
Here is my testimonial for you course as after completion felt I had to write:
I feel extremely fortunate to have studied Clinical and Medical Hypnotherapy under the tutelage of Dr. Lyn Bateman.
As a greatly experienced master in this field he has clearly and simply shown me the essential fundamentals of how to use hypnotherapy for the maximum benefit of my clients.
He directly cuts through all the unnecessary 'Nonesense' which many other trainers or colleges think is part of the art of hypnosis. In stead he demonstrates and teaches a wealth of Instant Inductions, non-verbal inductions, the methods and benefits if achieving deep trance states and then, most importantly the most simple and effective therapies to achieve the best results for the client.
I look forward to continuing my studies with Dr. Bateman. I believe he provides the best training I could hope to receive.
Kevin Walker.

Hi Lyn
 I would like to thank you sincerely for teaching me both Level 3 and 4 Clinical and Medical Hypnotherapy.  It has been invaluable to train with you and access your vast knowledge and experience acquired over the last 35 years of practising hypnotherapy.  I feel  very privileged to have trained with you and look forward to commencing a PhD with you shortly.
Should you wish to include my name on your website for testimonial purposes I am happy for you to use it. 
Kindest regards  Lisa Price Jones

Hi Lyn
 My Testimonial Firstly I would like to thank Lyn for considering me to attend the course on Clinical & Medical Hypnotherapy.
I was very unsure what to expect from the course, but from day one found Lyn's training to be professional and very effective in teaching me the theory and methods of becoming a Hypnotherapy Practitioner.
Lyn's wealth of knowledge from nearly 40 years experience is invaluable for the right student to provide guidance and create the expertise needed to succeed within the field.
I am furthering my studies with Lyn on advanced Hypnotherapy with a view to achieving a Bachelor's Degree.
would recommend that anybody who wishes to work within the field of Hypnotherapy take advantage of the skill, knowledge and  professionalism that  Lyn has to offer and attend one of his courses, you won't be disappointed.
Regards  Dave Atwick.

I was impressed with the professionalism and flexibility of the training.
Thanks Lyn and I hope to do further advanced training - Level 4 and CPD.
Thoroughly enjoyed myself Lyn.

Dear Lyn

As you know, I have been a qualified nurse for over 20 years and due to recurrent back injuries I wanted to add another string to my bow to see me through the next 25 years without injury.

Your course has enabled me to develop my own practice and knowledge, and has made me realise how beneficial hypnosis could be within the health professions. It is finally beginning to gain credibility amongst doctors and dentists, but I see that the nursing profession, who are in more direct contact with patients at their most vulnerable, would find this skill invaluable for their patients’ physical and mental health.
The course has centred on the practical aspects of hypnosis, hypnotherapy and other techniques which are not available on any other course, but is of such value to patient and client well-being that it seems ludicrous that they are not more widely used. I intend to remedy this in my own practice.
Thank you Lyn, for passing on this wealth of knowledge unselfishly, fully and without hesitation. 
I hope that I can do you proud in my own clinic.
Oh, and thank you Pat for putting up with us all!
Claire Thomas BSc (Hons), RGN.

Thank you for a wonderful course. I have hypnotised several people now and found the techniques so easy to use. I have had several paying clients and am looking forward to going full time now. I have had several referrals since starting in May and look forward to working for myself especially with the children, working my own hours suits me perfect. Pam Williams. 

Dear Lyn.
I must complement you on your course. The materials levels 1.2.3 manuals all bound professionally better than any other I have received on other coursesI would also like to thank Pat also for supplying the tea coffee and biscuits so often.Love to you both Anna D. 

Dear Lyn,
Please accept my sincere gratitude for the welcome and hospitality that you, and Pat, afforded me over the past couple of months. I would like to pay the highest possible tribute to you personally, as executive director of studies of the International Institute of Clinical Hypnosis which is so thorough, analytic, detailed, instructive and professional. It is without doubt, the finest course anyone aspiring to be a hypnotherapist could undertake to study in the U.K. The thoroughness of your course has created a need, and a foremention of an association of the most highly trained therapists, tobe promoted to the Public at large as an adjunct to modern Medical Science. To promote such a course there can be no one more qualified than yourself to teach it. I know with the training your students receive, they will continue to help humanity at large to combat and overcome the problems they face. With the very best wishes to you and Pat in the future. Yours Sincerely, Alan

Dear Mr Bateman.
Thank you very much for your most excellent hypnotherapy course. It is without doubt the best course that I could have chosen. The range of induction techniques and therapies are undoubtedly the most wide range and comprehensive that are available anywhere. This combined with your practical knowledge and methods of teaching have resulted in a most valuable and instructive period, which has been supplemented with audio and video material.
That has only up to now been available to the Medical profession. I cannot recommend this training course highly enough, it is by far the best in Europe, if not in the World. Anyone who graduates from this training program will definitely have the tools and resources to be a competent and highly trained professional hypnotherapist. Thank you once again for the brilliant range and depth of your practical and home study course. I am so glad that I chose your course asopposed to other inferior alternatives. Yours with best wishes,
R. Cole   

Dear Lyn,
I just had to write to you to tell you how wonderfull you hypnotherapy course was. I was so despondent after completing what I now call the (Cowboy Course) at another School, that Ithought of giving up hypnotherapy altogether. Then I was talking to someone else who had the same problem with the same training program, and upon his advice then came for training with you, it was upon starting your course that I really learned what hypnosis and hypnotherapy really was. It was only after completing your course that I really realised how dangerous it could have been to have set myself up in practice after the first course which I call the "Cowboy Course." I have now set up practice at a Cardiff Opticians, and I can say I feel really confident to work now. Many thanks. R. Simmons. 

 
Dear Lyn,
May I take this opportunity to offer my sincere thanks for what I would personally belief to be the, most relaxed and informative course that I have ever undertaken. As you know before contacting you, I sent dozens of letters to hypnotherapy organisations all over the country, contacting colleges and schools for a course in hypnosis without any success, apart form correspondence courses or only one or two weekend courses. Therefore I was very grateful when you contacted me with the information of your professional hypnotherapy courses. I had become unemployed for medical reasons and needed a complete change in profession that suited not only my medical problems but my interests, the change being from a qualified Electromechanical service engineer (self employed) to a qualified competent and knowledgeable hypnotherapist. The course itself as I have mentioned above and will repeat was the most informative course I have ever taken and since completing. I must say how any hypnotist can learn this science and practice safely or get any success from a couple of days training or correspondence course I will never know. Once again may I offer you my sincere thanks and I am proud to be a member 
Martin P Williams.  

Dear Lyn,
Just a short note to say how I thoroughly enjoyed your seminar. If I was (and indeed I was) hesitantly passive, it only goes to show how little I was instructed in practical terms on that 'other' course. But just as you said, a lot can be learned simply by listening and watching. Two days of observing you personal demonstrations has certainly bolstered my confidence.
John Facchini Scotland.   

Dear Lyn,
I am looking forward to your seminar very much also to having you try your extensive skills on my arm.Douglas Barnes White.  

Dear Mr Bateman,
I am a student of a course in Norfolk on the point of finishing the course and in common with many other of the students, I have found a sad lack of practical experience. I have heard 'via the grapevine' that you sometimes run a two days practical course on hypnotic & advanced induction technique for professional hypnotherapists. I would dearly love to attend one of your weekend seminars, in the near future.
Patricia.

Dear Lyn,
I have just spoken to Pat and I understand that there are just two places left on you two day seminar on the 26 / 27 of November. I would like to confirm that I will be attending and enclosed is my cheque to cover the full cost. I have heard so much of your outstanding ability as a Clinical hypnotist and your seminars and look forward to meeting you personally. Anne . 

Hello Lyn,
Just a quick thank-you for the superb day of training yesterday, I feel that I benefited greatly from the experience and appreciate the warm hospitality shown to me.
Kind regards,
Bryan

Thank you for the most interesting and useful training I have received since qualifying as a hypnotherapist 8 years ago - it was absolutely fascinating and I can't wait to put what I learned into practise. Your passion for and knowledge of hypnotherapy is impressive and your hospitable and easy manner made it a very enjoyable weekend.
Thanks once again for your kindness, generosity and hospitality Kind regards, Pam

Hi Lyn,
after doing several other courses I must say I learnt more in 4 to 6 weeks with yourself than I learned on the other courses in months. I must congratulate you on your professionalism and immense knowledge of our wonderful subject. Keep expanding your superb knowledge so others can learn and continue to help those in need. Jan. Dear Dr. Bateman, Thank you for a wonderful course. I have hypnotised several people now and found the techniques so easy to use.

To Lyn And Pat.
First of all I would like to thank you Lyn for such a great course and feel proud to have been trained by you and to have gleaned some of your immense knowledge on the subject of hypnosis. I like the others all enjoyed the course material and the way you designed it one part flowing into the other so smoothly and made so easy to understand. I have already started working with clients and have began earning already and feel very exited at the prospects of my change in career from a factory worker to ahypnotherapist. I really am glad I made the change my out look on life as changed dramatically and I feel great. I would also like to say thank you to Pat for being so kind to us all.
