by Nadine - November 2015

I am 1 year into my 3 year course with Chrysalis. I have to say I am thrilled with the course. My tutor has been amazing, and the office staff were helpful as well. Although I wasn't overly keen on doing the Hypnotherapy year i have thoroughly enjoyed it and found it to be a useful tool. I will certainly use it through into my professional career. For anyone looking to train with Chrysalis, I would say 'go for it' with anything, you get what you put into it and it really has been a great experience for me.
