Professionally Endorsed

I don’t recommend many trainers or practitioners, but Doug O Brien is as good as it gets when it comes to hypnosis and hypnotherapy – great tonality, really creative content and a precision with language that is all too rare in the field of Hypnosis and NLP. As well as these skills he is probably the best trainer in the world today on Sleight of Mouth and his Sleight of Mouth products are some of the very few I would recommend to my clients.

Doug’s Sense of Humor

I especially enjoy Doug’s sense of humor – how he combines compassion with a lighthearted spirit. He sees the bigger picture of life, and focuses not on problems, but on solutions. Doug not only gets results, but everyone has a good time getting them.

Doug is one of the rare teachers who is able to integrate NLP and Ericksonian hypnosis, so that students develop both conscious and unconscious competence.
