“A lot of integration of knowledge and feelings about the work of hypnotherapy happened in this class. After 300 hrs. of training at Hypnotism Training Institute with Randal and Marlene, I got some new, fresh fuel for my inner fire and new confidence and verification in this course with Gil Boyne.

“This class fills the gaps in any hypnotherapy practice. Every therapist can gain insight, technique and confidence from this program. Gil Boyne’s professional philosophy is brilliant!
The video therapies were wonderful, important and useful.
Gil Boyne presents ideas, concepts and insights from a highly educated background. He seems to have a curious nature, expressed as an astonishing love of life, work and service to others. The information on how to evaluate the client’s readiness for change and the factors required for effective therapy were most valuable to me. Gil’s lessons in confronting the client and speaking the “unspeakable truth” were worth the tuition. I feel transformed by this course and the gift of validation and confidence that will be reflected in my practice.
Shirley Davolos

“Choice of case histories was great! Gil’s commentary was excellent and his answers were complete. A very clear and sound personal philosophy underlies his work. I share the belief that an underlying spiritual philosophy is a necessary component for transformation to occur. Gil, you walked me through the forest and showed me connections I had not seen before.
Thank You—–

“ I loved the therapy film of “Bud, Born to Lose”. It was wonderful to see Gil, the “Patriarch of Hypnotherapy”, use the methods he developed and to see how he can interchange of each method and script to fit the needs of each client. Gil Boyne is a wonderful teacher and he is FUN and never “starchy”. I believe the greatest benefit I received is a feeling of appreciation and gratitude for Gil’s fifty years of work and dedication to creating and adapting the methods used in his “Transforming Therapy”. The live therapy session with Mike, in front of the class, was an exciting demonstration of your techniques and your creativity.

I deeply appreciate being “shown” ( as well as being “told”)

Gil Boyne,you are a Master with Words. The demonstrations show how “Transforming Therapy”methods quickly remove deep-seated inhibitions that prevent creative living. You tackle the impossible and are never afraid to confront issues of crippling negative thought patterns and compulsive behavior. Your recognition of a Higher Power and your trust in Divine Guidance gives you a radiance that shines through your therapy. I will recommend your trainings to everyone.

His communication skills and the expression of his passion is inspiring.I especially admire Gil’s individuality. I agree that Love is the foundation that is needed to create a lasting healing.
Nancy Friedrich

“The content of this class was perfect for me! In watching Gil Boyne weave his magic, I was amazed time and time again by his ability to communicate with everyone despite differing levels of education, training and experience. He has an insight that enables him to use the right tool every time and he applies it with love and caring, Yet, he never allows the clients to lie to themselves. I believe these qualities have been developed by many years of experience, an un wavering belief in Self and a knowing belief in a Higher Power. This combination has made Gil Boyne an outstanding Teacher, Therapist and Human Being.

“I experienced Gil Boyne as a feeling centered, intelligent/sensitive, fiery and direct creator of healing relationships. He responds to the needs of the client and his intensity and directness meets the clients unconscious feelings and energy at it’s own level. This allows expression of repressed memories and feelings linked to them.
Combined with Gil’s creative reeducation a new integration of unconscious and conscious mind beliefs and attiudes develops. The final step is expression of more rewarding levels of function and a greater participation in creative living. I totally support and am aligned with Gil’s expressed beliefs.
