"Having joined the SCCP community in 2003, and completed the certificate course with the SCCP, I was, at first, apprehensive about committing to the full diploma as hypnotherapy was, at the time, still mainly a hobby for me, Thanks to James's support, enthusiasm and encouragement, I then went on to complete the HPD, and I can honestly say my life was changed forever. I set up a small but successful practice, closely supervised and increasingly supported by James and, with his help, offered therapy to the wide ranging clients that came to see me.
In the classroom, I was always amazed at how James could address such a big class for so long, with ABSOLUTE confidence and authority on the never ending subject of therapy, confidence that can only be achieved from his experience, while also allowing us all to discuss each topic, so as to really understand the subject.
I was also impressed by the fact that, within supervision, James was a completely different, but equally professional person showing all the qualities that makes him such a good therapist, and, as such, any clients I refer to him, I punctuate with the words "I would trust him with my life".
As such, now 9 years on, I am PROUD to call James a lifelong friend, being in regular contact with him, and as such, he knows me better than anyone else I've ever met, and gladly so."
