"Gil Boyne, who has become a living legend in the hypnotherapy world, takes his students on a journey of true emotional and spiritual transformation. Gil is the only therapist who has videotaped a comprehensive library of his successful hypnotherapy sessions and follow-up interviews. The videos are shown to students on a giant screen and interspersed with Gil’s insightful commentary. Gil’s unique “Transforming Therapy,” shows its potency in liberating clients from a wide range of emotional traumas and physical ailments. His charisma and personal magnetism and total belief in “Transforming Therapy” is worth far more than all the techniques, and theories of hypnosis which abound. The videotapes, sets of audiotapes, books and manuals given as class materials made this course an incredible value. This is one training course that I can recommend with absolute confidence”                                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Donald Robertson Exec .Director, UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.
