I am delighted to provide a testimonial for my hypnotherapy lecturer, Jo Perry. She was an exceptional teacher who left a lasting impact on me. Jo was not only informative but also inspiring. Her extensive knowledge in hypnotherapy was conveyed with clarity and precision, making complex concepts easy to understand. Her passion for the subject matter ignited genuine enthusiasm within the classroom, motivating me to pursue this field and make a positive impact on others. Beyond her expertise, Jo was incredibly supportive. She created a nurturing environment where students felt comfortable asking questions and expressing their thoughts. Her adaptability in using various teaching methods catered to different learning styles, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the material. Her sense of humour and down-to-earth nature added a delightful touch to the learning experience. Jo continues to support my hypnotherapy knowledge and practice, providing group and one-to-one supervision.

Choosing to train at The Observatory Practice was the best decision as I now feel fully equipped to offer an excellent service in making a difference in people’s lives. The experienced teachers are professional and knowledgeable and Jo is now my mentor, continuing to support my developing practice. I have engaged with many courses before attending this one and can recommend the high quality of this course if you want a solid foundation in hypnotherapy.

What Jo doesn’t know about hypnotherapy isn’t worth knowing! Her warm, professional approach to teaching leaves you feeling enthused and motivated to learn more. She is clearly incredibly experienced and able to deal with challenging topics as well as fielding difficult questions from some of the trainees. I absolutely loved training to become a hypnotherapist – it’s some of the best CPD I have ever experienced and what it has led to has been genuinely life-changing.

I trained at Plymouth in 2017. I found Jo very helpful and knowledgeable about the course and what was expected of us as students.  She was always approachable, kind and thoughtful and would come up with solutions to any problems that were raised.

I highly recommend the Inspiraology Plymouth hypnotherapy training course to anyone considering becoming a hypnotherapist. The course is well structured, mixing theory and practice and the tutors are really helpful. I did the course last year and that has enabled me to pivot my career and help new clients (face-to-face and online) feel less stressed and more creative. It is so rewarding.
