TESTIMONIALS FROM STUDENTS - now certified hypnotherapist:

  • This hypnosis training has gone over my expectations. The overall program covers a bit more than hypnosis, making it such an interesting and fulfilling subject to study.

  • The instructor was the catalyst element during the course, always providing examples of the clinical aspect of the field, always asking if we had understood or had any questions. Her interest and love for the field of hypnosis was clear and perfectly conveyed to her students who were always so excited to come to her class all prepared to learn and practice. Instruction was fun and challenging at the same time. I most appreciate Jane taking her time to explain and demonstrate difficult areas or concepts (maybe that’s why we run out of time for a few things?) for those of us slow to learn new things.

  • Practice, practice, was the motto of this training, and as student I can really appreciate that. It shows a genuine effort to make the students feel more confident and comfortable with their newly acquired skills and abilities. .

  • Best of all, the energy of this group was something unbelievable. At the end we could not bear the thought of seeing us go. I will forever be grateful for this opportunity of meeting such a nice group of human beings and such a wonderful and caring teacher. Jane you are the best teacher I have had in a long, long time. I will never forget you! M.C-C 

  • This was an outstanding course which I would highly recommend to anyone interested in pursuing a career in hypnotherapy.    Thank you Jane for an outstanding experience.    LB

Graduation Day

Graduation Day

  • This program has exceeded my expectations in the breadth and depth of information and learning offered.   It is clear to me how I can use what I have learned in a clinical setting.  I will begin offering hypnotherapy sessions right away.  The classes were packed with a balanced mixture of lecture, practice, experience, audio-visual and Q&A.  All questions were answered in detail and with real-life examples.  Jane is a master of her trade.  The fact that many of her students had first been her clients speaks to the effectiveness of her knowledge and skills.  My favorite part of the program were the practice sessions… actually putting the techniques, scripts, inductions into practice with fellow students and receiving the sessions to experience hypnotherapy first-hand. GL

  • I had the Privilege of taking the Hypnosis Certification training at The Hypnosis and Emotional Freedom Center with Jane Buckman.  The course was challenging, encouraging, fun, and rewarding. 

  • This comprehensive training includes very extensive and well written manuals. The manuals include a full range of scripts and forms for working with clients. The manuals and handouts also provide information on the theory and history of hypnosis as well as how the mind works in relation to hypnosis and therapeutic suggestions.

  • There was plenty of opportunity to practice as therapist as well as experience the client’s perspective to hypnosis. We practiced and critiqued techniques in class under Jane's supervision. The practice with supervision and critique enabled me to graduate from hypnosis training with the confidence that I can help others as a hypnotherapist. By the end of the class you will have the confidence to perform suggestibility tests, inductions, deepeners and create customized positive suggestions for your clients.   

  • You will also develop an understanding of the code of ethics and responsibility of being a trained hypnotherapist. All the participants came with a wide range of knowledge and experience. Jane was able to create a safe, open learning environment which encouraged us to ask questions, raise concerns and learn from each other. 


  • The content was extremely well developed and flowed nicely. Jane related the content very well to actual practice. She did a great job of keeping my attention and presenting in an interesting manner and I feel competent to use this training in my practice.  
  • The facilitator was extremely effective – well-versed in the topic with great skill in presentation.  I gained knowledge and practical competency. Presenter was skillful and responsive with questions and concerns. I value our practice together; the group and spirit of communication; and, the support fostered by Jane." W S 

  • The course was extremely well rounded, with information coming from a variety of sources: videos, demonstrations, teaching by the instructor, and working with my fellow students. I am now feeling ready to begin to set up a hypnotherapy business out of my home, at least part time.  Jane offered a great amount of information, not only in the “how to" of hypnotherapy, but also the “how to” run a practice & a business which I really appreciated. BH 


  • Jane has a vast knowledge of hypnotherapy and an enthusiasm for teaching.  She shared some of her personal therapeutic encounters with clients (without violating client confidentiality) which helped bring clarity to topics of discussion. I would highly recommend hypnosis training at the Hypnosis and Emotional Freedom Center with Jane Buckman to anyone who has an interest in hypnosis and is willing to be taught by an experienced, highly successful instructor that is compassionate, ethical, caring and will facilitate your learning to get excellent results in your practice of hypnotherapy." Because hypnosis was practiced throughout the training, I had the opportunity to work on personal issues.

  • Every time we learned a new concept we were provided an opportunity to practice the skills and techniques as the hypnotist, and as the client.

  • The training prepared me extremely well with techniques, behavior, etc. (everything).  It totally met my expectations.  The content was well-developed with a lot of information and a lot of free handouts and scripts.  The facilitator was excellent in relating the content and in keeping our interest and attention.  She did a very good job.   I have been able to utilize this training for myself and with others with excellent results.  The facilitator’s overall effectiveness; knowledge of the topic; presentation skills was excellent and effective.  I was able to absorb a lot of information.  Jane related very well with everyone in the group - answering all questions and concerns.  The things I liked bests:  The instructor was calm, relaxed and focused – a supportive teacher offering a wide variety of materials and good presentations.  I can think of nothing that could have been done to improve this training. EB


  • This excellent training has enhanced my effectiveness as a therapist. The presentations and content was well-developed with a lot of training given in an interesting and entertaining way.  Students are encouraged to probe and explore. Jane gave reinforcement that can be directly applied in practice and on myself.  Already I have been using hypnosis with a few of my clients"  EAB

  • The content was well developed. Jane’s ability to relate the information to actual practice was one of the major strengths of this course. Jane is an excellent trainer – making it understandable and interesting.
  • I already see how effective hypnosis and this training is. She is very knowledgeable and relates very well to the group; she brought us together, answered questions very well, and made sure we understood everything. I loved the mix of learning from printed materials, videos, DVDs, lectures and doing many hands-on sessions. I think the mix and the focus on how to really do this and build a practice were especially helpful. I wouldn’t change a thing. 

  • Jane was from the start an inspiration and opened her home to us. Her willingness to show and teach us all that she could was evident. I leave the class with the confidence that I will be successful in the field as a hypnotist. CH 


  • This course was very effective in building up experiences in the field of hypnosis.  Day by day, I found a deeper understanding of hypnotherapy.  The instructor, Ms. Jane Buckman, is a very strong and effective character and a very good teacher for delivering the message.  The tools and information provided in this course were more than sufficient for building up a new career.  I enjoyed this training.  Day by day, I found myself more into it and that it is what was meant for me to do.  It is giving more purpose and meaning to my life – a tool to offer service helping others.  Thanks Jane,  SSB
  • P.S.  The atmosphere for teaching was great and the student interaction workshops were very educational.  

  • I have an appreciation for the weekend sessions (versus an intensive course) to allow time for the information to process and for practice clients.  ….  The instructor’s experience and all encompassing well-done encouragement was re-enforcing for us as beginners.   The round table format of sharing information is a valuable tool.  The welcoming format is similar to group learning discussions and made for a safe environment especially when working with intimate and traumatic person issues in class.  I would and have recommended this course because of the instructor and how the material was presented.  JS  11/15/09


  • I had the opportunity to provide at least 5 practice hypnosis sessions to family and friends prior to the last class.  This afforded me the opportunity to provide a complete hypnosis session from beginning to end and incorporate everything I learned in training from the intake, to explaining what hypnosis is, answering the client’s questions, doing suggestibility testing, induction through emerging I set aside 2 hour blocks of time to allow myself to know what a 2-hour hypnosis session felt like. Since there was still one more class I could bring back to the class and instructor any challenges that occurred and get feedback and/or suggestions.  I was impressed with not only the training materials, but the manner in which Jane brought the information to life, made it real, interesting and a great deal of fun. 

  • I received many scripts, patient forms, marketing information, cd’s and other material that are invaluable when starting a new practice.

  • During the course I realized that I was changing, growing and developing confidence in my ability to help others achieve their goals through hypnosis. 

  • I learned that how I think has a bigger impact on my life than I thought. I enjoyed the relaxed, low pressure atmosphere of each class. We laughed, we ate, we took journeys through each other’s lives. Best of all I made new friends which are now my esteemed colleagues.  DJ
