The last year of my life has been something really special. I signed up for the Quest Institute Cognitive Hypnotherapy Diploma, having a sense that I was possibly taking a step through a door to another world - little did I know then just quite what a fantastic world that was and how it was going to impact on my life. Doing the Diploma course is certainly much more than just 'doing a course'. It's a life changer! and if you allow it guides you towards a better version of yourself, whilst learning how to assist people to work towards their better versions of themselves. I have learnt so much, more about me and a strong foundation to start my career as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist. Trevor and Bex who run the Institute are amazing people who make everyone feel welcome and totally capable of obtaining their goals. Entering the world of Quest is a wonderful experience with understanding and support from every direction. I have met some fabulous people and due the ongoing support arrangements have support and advice at my fingertips from peers and highly experienced 'Questie's' on an ongoing basis. Now that that I've qualified and come to the end of the diploma course, I have chosen to go straight onto the Master Practitioner course, so that I can continue learning more advanced techniques while getting support in setting up my business. Have just loved the last year ..... now it's onwards and upwards :) Anyone considering a career in this area, I would advise not to hesitate in signing up - You'll never regret it!

I have never reviewed anything online before so I will give it a shot. I will keep it short otherwise you may find yourself drifting off into a deep relaxing sleep due to my ongoing rambling!
This course is unlike any other hypnotherapy training course. To me this sounds too business like and boring. It is more than just a training course. This is a Quest training course.
At the heart of it, the training and the community spirit is second to none. It is also a place to admire......a place to be inspired......a place to feel welcomed......and a place to have fun. A place to make friendships......a place to listen to Trevor's jokes and pun's......a place to grow and develop......a place to overcome. A place of self-discovery......a place where you feel comfortable......a place where you are supported......and a place where you can learn......And it may not be until afterwards that you realise that you were on a wonderful journey that you will not regret and never forget......This is Quest.
Just realised this sounds a bit like a poem :p Maybe after attending Quest, it has made me think, just a little more creatively.......which is a good thing.
You will learn the best techniques available to help others grow and overcome their limitations. You have everything to gain. Trevor & Bex form an outstanding partnership who inspire you and guide you to be the best you can be and along with all the wonderful assistants and Jan who are always there to help and support you along the way.

Oh how the time has passed since Q34 started! and Oh how long it has taken me to give the feedback I promised!
The Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy did not come easily for some of us on Q34. For myself I was ready to walk away and not return at weekend 8. However I took Trevor's advice to 'go get some therapy' and learned to get over my self doubts. I worked like crazy and passed my HPD.
The help and support to each other, of everyone in this Institution, from Trevor and the team to supervisors, other Questie's and fellow students is unique. I cannot recommend this course highly enough :).
As for the future I shall be attending Master Practitioner 1 in November as I now need to keep up the momentum as my own business begins to build :D.

I know it is incredibly difficult to make decisions sometimes! Personally I have been interested in Hypnotherapy since I was 16 years old when I was employed and in awe of my employer, who was both a Pharmacist and a Hypnotherapist. It has taken me years to take the plunge as I am now 46!
I had been seriously researching hypnotherapy courses for about 3-4 years before I took the plunge and started on my own journey with QUEST. I never thought I could do it academically - but you are truly nurtured throughout the QUEST course, not only by the wonderful Trevor & Bex, but by your fellow Questies who almost become part of your family.
The one thing that has completely amazed me is the support from the whole of the QUEST community both on the actual course and via the Forum - people I have never even met!
If you are considering this course, you can listen to the video, you can read these testimonials, but somehow, it is difficult to comprehend what this actually means in reality. Help and support is available within minutes of posting a request and you [U]really[/U] are never on your own.
Quite simply - I cannot recommend this course more highly! :D

I remember this time last year reading reviews about the Quest Institute and the training courses run by Trevor. I was apprehensive when I signed up, hoping that the course would live up to my expectations. I need not have worried!!!
Q34 went above and beyond my expectations in so many ways. I feel like a different person to the one that started back in September 2012. I've learned so much and have a new career which fills me with excitement and joy.
My world has expanded and I now belong to an amazingly supportive group of people, many of whom have become great friends.
I can now say with pride 'I am a Cognitive Hypnotherapist'!
Thanks to Trevor, Bex and all the Quest family :)

A year ago I made what I now realise was an excellent decision to study the Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy!!!! The course material is well balanced between theory, practical and suggested further study. The HPD is something to be proud of and ensures a thorough knowledge and understanding to prepare you to set up as a practitioner. I have found the course fascinating and learnt a brilliant new set of skills to take forward into my professional life, but probably more importantly I now know and understand myself better. I have met some brilliant people along the way and am looking forward to the opportunities that I now have. I would like to say a huge thank you to Trevor and Bex, the Quest team and my fellow Q34's for a magical 10 months. :)

It’s very difficult to sum this course up such a short space. Life changing would be the most appropriate choice of words. I’m sure others will say the same because it really is. I feel as though my pre-existing knowledge was blown apart and mid-way through the course I began to build a new perspective based on solid foundations; a great journey to have taken.
The course is very well structured, appropriately paced and has a perfect balance of theory and practical. There is so much to learn and it all starts here. My advice to anyone who takes this course is to throw yourself in and just trust the process.
One of the presuppositions of NLP comes from the Law of requisite variety from systems theory and states: the person with the most flexibility will have a greater degree of control in the system. By the end of the course you will know what this truly means. This course gives you an understanding of what it is to be flexible and how to meet other people’s models of the world without much effort. This means by the end of the course you will have better relationships with people and in turn will have more opportunities in your life.
At the beginning of the course I was stuck in a job I hated today I am now faced with thinking through three job offers and even the prospect of setting up a business. Whilst I attribute the new opportunities I am considering to the actions I took, I am also mindful of what the course and Quest has given me in order to move forward.
This course will give you so much. I wholeheartedly recommend taking the course.

In my professional career to date, I have been privileged to be sent on some of the best corporate training money can buy. However, all of this pales into insignificance compared with the quality of training I have received as part of Q34. Where to start? Trevor is a very accomplished trainer and knows exactly how to engage his audience and pace their learning. The materials issued are comprehensive without being patronising. The impact of the last 10 months for me personally has been immense, I know I am a very different person to the one who entered the room in October 2012 and this is as a result of Trevor's fantastic training style, the very high quality of the content and the wonderful support you receive from your fellow Questies. At every stage the learning is reinforced. Yes, the HPD is demanding but very worth it and you will get plenty of support from everyone throughout the process. I look back on the decision I made 12 months ago to commit to this journey and I feel smug because I know I have made one of the best decisions of my life to just go for it. I strongly recommend anyone who is considering this course to put aside any doubts and just go for it you will not regret it!...And we can both be curious about what it will feel like when you look back at yourself in 12 months time and realise how different you are in so many wonderful ways....

I'm going to keep this short and sweet as I doubt my review of the course would do it justice..!
This course was nothing short of fantastic. It's enlightening, thorough, fascinating, great fun, ground breaking and life changing. Trevor is a fantastic teacher and the support, both personal and technical is top notch.
You will never look at life, yourself and others in the same way again (..and that's a good thing).
Don't think about it - DO IT!

I just can’t praise this course in cognitive hypnotherapy enough - not only do you get the best hypnotherapy training in the world, you also get a fantastic grounding in NLP also. I too had already taken a hypnotherapy diploma and a separate NLP practitioner’s diploma which were both pretty good but could not in any way compare with this one for the sheer depth and breadth of what was taught, encompassing so many different facets of the subject and the brilliant way it is presented and taught to accommodate all the different learning styles.
The support from everyone involved with the course (and with the Quest community in general) was truly amazing and ongoing and I am proud to have been a part of it and to continue to be a part of it.
I will never regret a minute of it and am spurred on to do great things with my newly acquired knowledge and expertise.
