Student Testimonies

"How thankful and grateful I am to have taken this course. At 67 years old with degrees in Psychology and as a Primal Therapist since 1972, I still have a lot to learn from this program. I found the information to be most comprehensive and filled in many of the cracks and spaces to finally give me a clear and complete picture of how consciousness works in all of us. The combination of Judy's professional wisdom, personal clarity and light-hearted humor have made this a most profound yet enjoyable experience. Anyone taking this course will graduate with the tools to help themselves and others in a most professional way."  Jonathan Hall

"I am eternally grateful to Judy Ward and the training I received at her school; The Hypnotherapy Institute (hypnotherapyone.com).  I have been practicing hypnotherapy since my graduation.  I have attended many years of school, and Judy is one of the best instructors I have ever experienced; she is extremely wise and knowledgeable in her field, patient and generous in sharing her knowledge and experience, and completely approachable and down to earth.  The training is thorough and comprehensive, without being overwhelming.  Whether your objective is to practice hypnotherapy, or to augment your existing practice with the use of hypnotherapy, I give this training program the highest recommendation!"   Tamara Sweeney
