"...a fund of knowledge and can be viewed time and time again..."
by Janet Jones, who is a Dental Nurse from Ayrshire, Scotland

"The DVD Hypnosis Unwrapped provides a fund of knowledge and can be viewed time and time again - always revealing more skills and acting as a most useful aide memoire. Clear instructions and on-screen hints together with the succinctly written accompanying booklet gives the student an excellent adjunct to the course. As a "remote" student I would certainly recommend it to all, regardless of their geographical location."
