"I appreciate the flexibility offered by this program, especially the ability to choose the courses that I felt would be of most value to me in my hypnotherapy career. Distance learning is a new experience for me, and, although there were times when I believe I could have learned better in a didactic situation, I was readily able to grasp most of the material. I did find that putting these ideas into practice with clients reinforced the learning, and gave me valuable experiences. Writing papers is a good way to reinforce learning for me, and with the wise and thoughtful comments of my faculty advisor (Dr. Alex Docker), I think I have internalized a lot of useful material. This program is an excellent value for the money I invested, and I feel much more competent as a hypnotherapist having taken these courses. Additionally, being able to complete some credits by taking seminars (both within and outside of APU) was of great value, and gave me some of the didactic experiences I wanted."
