Our expertise is shared in working with recovered memories and avoiding false memories.

From Russia with Love

"It's very hard to find the words to express my profound gratitude and appreciation for everything I was privileged to witness in class. It was almost like a fairy-tale where miracles can be worked easily, effortlessly, and joyfully. Everything was performed with great skill, experience, feeling, respect, and deep love. The atmosphere was always friendly and pleasant. It's been so nice to be your student.

"Randal, your approach is so full of energy, enthusiasm, willingness to share. I loved every moment of your teaching and demonstrating. You both complement each other in a most intricate and brilliant way!

"You gave highly informative, brilliantly presented, very enjoyable lectures. The demonstrations were profound and inspiring, and the practice sessions were very useful. A big, big thank you! It's all in my heart and I know you feel it."

" …no greater gift…"

"Naturally I expected to acquire the skills necessary to become a well-trained hypnotherapist, which I most certainly acquired. But I received so much more. I received the gift of myself.Through your remarkable skill, sensitivity, love and peaceful energy you created a safe, sacred space in which I felt supported enough to delve into my inner world. You introduced me to me, and went on to show me the depth and breadth of my inner world ... of my inner being. There is no greater gift, and for this I am profoundly grateful! You truly do teach hypnotherapy from the inside out. And in my opinion, there is no other way to teach it!"
