Our training courses on Hypnosis have had many happy clients. From counsellors to allied health professionals to psychologists, here is what they have to say about Tony Collins and his hypnosis training courses.
“Having had no previous training in Hypnosis apart from what I know intuitively, the course allowed me to gain a deeper set of skills for my toolbox. Learning about deepeners was great, and most importantly all the different scripts you can use blew me away! How we talk to the unconscious and conscious mind was also really enlightening.
We learnt a lot from one another as a group and this was an integral part of how the days of the course flowed. Tony turned this into a learning experience every time which was really good. I think the days were perfectly worked out with just the right amount of time. I enjoyed getting practical experience and having a go with no expectations.
I have to say Tony as a trainer you have an excellent rapport. You managed the time perfectly and the content was so easy to understand, nothing was ever too complicated. Your obvious knowledge and passion regarding Hypnotherapy is great, and I was amazed at how powerful Hypnotherapy can be.
You are an excellent trainer who speaks from the heart. Well done and thank you!”

“I learnt how to conduct Hypnosis sessions with clients professionally, how to help myself and others by understanding the unconscious and conscious minds, and how to implement the therapeutic techniques that can have a deeply healing and positive effect on our lives.
I liked everything about the course! It was informative and practical and was delivered in an interesting and effective way that I feel has provided me with skills that I can apply in my own personal and professional life.
It has created a whole other dimension to my understanding and Tony is a great teacher. He made it easy to follow and was very patient in answering each and every question (and there were a lot!) but that also added to the content, and it was delivered in a really interesting way that made it so much more enjoyable.
Tony managed our group so well as there was a lot of interaction and questions. This would have been a challenge for any experienced teacher or supervisor, but he allowed us all our own time and I believe everyone had an empowering experience from the feedback I received. I would enjoy undertaking further training in Hypnosis with Tony as he is an exceptional teacher and person.
Overall a 10/10 – excellent standard, content and supervision. Thank you!”
Dani – Melbourne
“I wanted to write and thank you again for a fabulous Hypnosis training.
Please accept my compliments when I say your training and in particular your style as a trainer far exceeded my expectations. Prior to attending I had high hopes that the training would be good but as you know its always a bit of a gamble when you don’t know much about the subject or the trainer.
What did I like best? Well, I guess it was your laid-back, non-judgemental attitude yet highly professional, you made the training fun, educational and I felt I was in a safe environment to be comfortable to share my experiences and learnings as we went along. It was delivered at a high standard and certainly ticked every criteria I personally had prior to attending. Through my working career I have been given the opportunity to attend many, many trainings by a variety of lecturers but I must say your deliverance of this training was one at the top of my list – well done and thank you.
Not only did you cover the course material thoroughly but you went above and beyond to answer all my questions (and I did have a lot 🙂 sorry) but you gave us so many practical tips and advice and a taste of other more advanced practices and therapies.
Definitely money well spent. Looking forward to moving on to the advanced courses with you soon. Thanks for being so flexible & professional and making my experience such a high positive one!”

“I have some wonderful feedback from the course that I would love to share with you….
The last few sessions I have had with my current clients have been wonderful. I feel efficient and productive because I have broken the problem into tangible symptoms that can be measured. I am now able to just focus on 1-2 things per session and that has made all the difference!
I just spoke to the clients that I saw for smoking – they haven’t smoked since our session, and I only had one session with them each!
Thank you soooo much for all your help and guidance. Smokers were a real block for me – I’ve seen three people since our course and all have stopped 🙂 Everything in the folder is so great and I just wanted to thank you again for making the process so clear.
All of your guidance on stop smoking was priceless. I have never seen a course be so very, very helpful with smoking clients. I have been worried about this population because of the little success they have had with me in the past, but all of your added hints and tips that are additional to what is in the folder have really boosted my confidence.
The support I already feel without even submitting a case study yet for feedback is just amazing. I feel Tony will be a wonderful guide because he is such an expert at what he does. Just from watching him doing the demonstrations I’ve found myself shifting a few of the things I was previously doing.
I’ve just really, really enjoyed all the benefits of doing your course – thank you!”
Sharanya – Melbourne
“After an introduction to the theory of hypnosis and an understanding of the unconscious mind, I received a comprehensive understanding of the hypnosis process from the initial interview phase, through welcoming and informing a client, to the application of the induction, deepener, the applying of suggestions and the awakening phases. After this, contra indicators and setting up a practice were covered.
The greatest benefit for me was learning the technique of creating positive suggestions to effect positive changes. I enjoyed learning the techniques of IMR’s, anchors and handling distractions. It was a brilliant, well rounded course.
I absolutely loved the group that came together for this course and thoroughly enjoyed Tony Collins as a teacher and guide. I was pleasantly surprised how much hypnosis is in line with meditation and creative visualisation in relation to the script writing. This area is a great passion of mine. I also love how hypnosis can change deep seeded patterns that allow individuals to move on unencumbered with their life.
Overall? Excellent – a 10/10 course!
Tony’s fluid and informative presentation with great real life examples, his happy and friendly demeanour overall and in his relating to the group, his attention to individual needs and support of practice sessions was impeccable. As stated, we had an amazing group of women who are well developed and knowledgeable in many alternate healing/spiritual areas. It was a profound four days”.
Fiona – Melbourne
“Excellent management and presentation of the course materials – Tony was organized and stayed on track. He’s very knowledgable and helpful as an instructor, and his willingness to help whenever required was fantastic”
Ros – Brisbane
“I learned quite a lot regarding the fundamentals, and the application of Hypnosis in regards to the assistance in healing life traumas, addictions, phobias, and much more. I learned that it is a safe and useful tool to assist and empower individuals.
What I enjoyed most was Tony’s ability in keeping the workshop interesting, in honoring us as individuals as well as his teaching style. We were not bored as he kept us engaged.
Tony has continued to be of assistance to all that shared in his workshop, supporting us via phone and emails.
Out of 10? Let’s say a “9” as we can always find ways to improve!
I would definitely register to do ongoing workshops with him again as I found his personal teaching style easy to follow.
It would be safe to say keep up the good work as others will also find his personal teaching style an asset!”
Seline – Melbourne
“The workshop was much more than theory. We had adequate allocation of time to practice the techniques being taught, Tony helped everyone feel relaxed and was very accommodating in answering questions
A lovely group dynamic – I liked that Tony was helpful with suggestions (particularly about the client interviewing process) and also unobtrusive when observing the session”
Anne – Melbourne
“I think the course was well put together and on the whole it gave a good overview and perspective, providing all the necessary information and skills required. The voice modulation/pacing instruction was well demonstrated by Tony. I felt confident using my voice in the style required and therefore an important part of taking a client into trance.
I learnt that hypnosis is not a therapy in itself but rather a tool, and that it isn’t so much about psychoanalysis.
I enjoyed applying the skills with fellow students of the same or similar background and this provided a very positive atmosphere with dependable feedback.
Tony’s enthusiasm, attitude and style was very easy to relate to, making it easy to ask questions and created a very enjoyable learning environment”.
Ria – Melbourne
“I am enjoying preparing to add therapeutic hypnosis to my 40+ years experience in counselling as an organisational psychologist, and now to my work in the health field.
I liked all of the comprehensive very well conducted training including the preparatory study, Tony Collins prior arrangements, the very suitable venue, the carefully arranged teaching environment and facilities, the exciting course content, Tony’s excellent conduct of the course, and his fast comprehensive emailed follow up.
I enjoyed all aspects of the sessions. Tony is a knowledgeable, very competent session organiser and leader. He carefully and even-handedly encouraged and supported each of the six participants.
I have continued a busy happy professional and personal life, and my metaphysical research has led me to these programs – my overall score for the course? 10/10!”
Richard – Sydney
“I most enjoyed learning the overview of hypnosis and its process, the way to structure sessions (induction, deepening, suggestions), the opportunity to build skill/experience in each of these areas in a reasonable and incremental way.
I liked learning about suggestions made in relation to the experience of working with clients with this modality, and ideas surrounding the technology which may assist the process.
Tony was respectful of the participants and had the support material for the instructional process. There was genuine efforts to build skill and support people within this process.
Tony assured me my questions were appropriate and not out of context. I did feel he was genuinely interested in assisting people develop skills and this was demonstrated in his ongoing interaction with people”.
Peter – Brisbane
“The trainer, Tony, made it all seem relevant and his approach seemed to relax me and allow me to understand and value the construction of the hypnotic process.
His style greatly enhanced my ability to learn and apply that knowledge.
I found Tony’s feedback was at all times instructive in a respectful and purposeful way. The practice sessions did not feel rushed and he provided the right space for learning to take place. He also had the ability to demonstrate verbally what he demonstrated in practice.
I was happy with the structure of the training days and found it suited my learning style. I did not feel pressured and felt the pacing of the training was good. I felt there was good opportunity for questioning and clarifying understanding
It was good that Tony’s occasional reference to his supervision provided a sense of security that he was part of a wider group and that there was a safety net if I had any concerns
A very good course – 9/10
I also greatly appreciated the general information re setting oneself up in business and the information session re the recording of the process and how to make a CD”
Nancy – Brisbane
“What did I like about the course? Everything!
It was the most interesting course, especially Tony – he was wonderful. Good tutor / trainer, and learning about the unconscious mind, its directives, and how we create changes at the unconscious level was fantastic.
It was a well set out program to develop our skills in hypnosis, I liked the venue and Tony was excellent – 9 out of 10!”
Chloe – SunshineCoast
“I gained a much deeper understanding of the unconscious mind and its effects in our daily life. The way the unconscious works and ways to bypass the mind, the ability to personalise a script to suit the client and how important it is in regards of the voice and when and how to use the voice for specific outcomes and effects.
It was more spiritual then I expected, and I liked that. I also liked how we always started the day with a meditation.
Tony followed through with sending out all the additional information after the course. Overall, a 9/10!”
Darren – Sydney
“I learnt the procedure of hypnosis, an understanding of how the conscious and unconscious mind work, how to write scripts, structure and pace, tonality, how to do a good interview so that it translates to a relevant script etc.
The pairs exercises were my favourite part of the course.
I had good guidance from the tutor – a great job done by Tony. I like his frankness and professionalism. Thumbs up!”
Lynn – Singapore
“I want to thank you for your time after the course and emphasise that I really appreciate it.
The feedback you have given will be really useful – it has already greatly helped with structuring my sessions.
Things like making sure I identify talking to the subconscious mind early on and extending the amount of specific suggestions etc, helps me for future sessions. It will also really help me with my confidence, so thanks so much again!”
