‚ÄúThe training with the Academy of Advanced Changework and especially the supervision by Karen was an amazing experience, which I can not recommend highly enough. The course was easy to follow while still being very in depth and through the client work I was able to practise, what we learned. Karen is a very knowledgeable and highly supportive coach, that guided me through this course and helped me gain the confidence to actually start as a Hypnotherapist.‚ÄĚ

~ Elleen Berger, Clinical Hypnotherapist & NLP Practitioner

Confidence is important as a hypnotherapist and you'll build this during your time on the course by initially practicing with your peers, before applying your skills in sessions with real clients with real issues away from the virtual classroom!

"I had the good fortune of studying under the guidance of Karen Bartle at the Academy of Advanced Changework, where I completed my Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP in 2022. From the very first day, Karen's expertise, dedication, and passion for her craft was inspiring. 
Throughout the course, I appreciated the consistency of Karen being my trainer. She always had a clear grasp of my progress, understood my challenges, and celebrated my achievements. Her patience when relaying complex concepts and techniques is a testament to her teaching and professional skills. 
Anyone lucky enough to learn from Karen, either in a physical or digital classroom, will undoubtedly benefit greatly from her expertise. She is a mentor who truly cares about the success and growth of her students, and I recommend her for anyone who values learning from a trainer who is thorough and holds you to the highest standards, setting you on a path to excellence. Whether you are beginning your journey in hypnotherapy or advancing your skills, Karen Bartle is the mentor to guide you towards achieving your goals"

Her Academy of Advanced Changework training diploma, run in conjunction with Dr Paul Peace, is engaging, stimulating and of the highest standard both academically and ethically.

Sarah Rogers

Really glad I did my training here! Professional, very knowledgeable and experienced trainers and it was good value for money. I learned more here in 6 months than I did in 3 years of Uni. It was a great experience and one I really enjoyed. There is a good amount of practical work in the course which helped make me confident in being a hypnotherapist.

Clare Longstaffe

Karen and Paul have a down to earth, friendly approach and are experts in their field. Their work is infused with professional integrity and I can thoroughly recommend their courses to those interested in this path.

Rebecca Kinnear

Karen and Paul were absolutely brilliant. The course was thorough, including not only hypnotherapy and therapeutic techniques but also practical strategies and advice regarding setting up a practice. I felt that the course gave me knowledge and confidence in moving forward into setting up privately. I would highly recommend.
