As a therapist I contacted Debbie regarding training specifically for insomnia and sleep issues generally for my clients initially as recently I had enquiries just for better sleep. Debbie sent me a link to her freeby online course via her website. I completed the course and was certificated with really helpful feedback. The course was to the point with the basics with lots of golden nuggets here and there for additional classified learning. Debbie’s feedback was spot on; and synchronised with my own thoughts snd feelings. In recent years I had become less satisfied with my own sleep quality. Her empathic attuned skilful tutorial feedback made me feel really understood despite we only spoke once when I enquired albeit I felt a connection. I can only report as I experienced. My sleep has improved remarkably since completing the course. I am amazed and so grateful. I have noticed already the ripple effect from better sleep snd I look forward to putting this into practise professionally as well as already personally. As a weathered experienced multi-modalities therapist I can work with client sleep issues with much more clarity, confidence and integrity and client safety having put the course in to practice for myself and it worked!!! I would absolutely recommend anyone who is not satisfied with their sleep for whatever reason to do this course and be curious about other learnings with Debbie. Thanks again Debbie for your dedication, generosity and kind understanding. 🙂👍🙏

Highly recommend Yorkshire Hypnotherapy Training. From my initial enquiry to the final day, Debbie has been enthusiastic, engaging and encouraging. The training is extremely well organised with helpful handouts and access to resources online. I knew very little about hypnotherapy when I started but thanks to Debbie's extensive knowledge, I learnt lots very quickly. Debbie is available between sessions with advice and guidance.

I trained with YHT and Debbie the Lead Trainer a decade ago and am so glad I chose them. The quality and expertise is five star plus and you graduate really feeling ready and skilled to see clients and help them on their journeys. There is a great support and help post graduating too which is invaluable especially in the early years. Could not recommend more!!

Having met many hypnotherapists that have trained with other training organisations, I quickly learnt that the training I had received from YHT was exemplary, with a wider and more in-depth syllabus. Over the years the continuous support and CPD has been invaluable, I cannot rate YHT high enough and would encourage anyone who is interested in learning hypnotherapy to not hesitate to sign up to this marvellous training facility.
