"Patrick is awesome! He was a SENSATIONAL TEACHER AND COACH for me. Patrick has an exceptional way of making all the material for this course just "sink right in." He knows the right way to "break apart" the procedures and make them seem like second nature. From Parts Therapy to N.L.P., his vast knowledge of all the various tools used in Hypnotherapy make him the most profound instructor I have had the pleasure of witnessing. I am so glad that such a professional spends the time needed to assist others in learning in a way thatís personally tailored for each student.Ē
