Leslie McIntosh teaches with compassion and professionalism. I would never trade this education for anything. I've received so much from this course, and I am forever a changed person.
Helen Brychka, White Rock
Going through this course I had to idea what to expect. Being a skeptic by nature I was pleasantly surprised to discover what a valuable tool hypnosis would be for my life. I left the course feeling empowered that anything is possible. Because of the quality of training and of the deeply enriching personal experiences I received I highly recommend Coastal for anyone who wants to become an excellent Hypnotherapist.
Paul Pathy, New Westminster. www.eurekahypnotherapy.com
Coastal Academy was a great place to complete my Hypnotherapy studies.
The course was well organized and professionally delivered. I gained valuable experience in all the relevant theoretical and practical knowledge during my studies. When I started working I felt completely confident that I knew all the steps required to be a successful hypnotherapist.
I also attended Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy at Coastal Academy and am planning to attend additional courses there in the future.
Words cannot describe my experience. I am in deep gratitude for everything I have learned and received. Leslie is the best teacher I have ever had. She is a master at creating a safe space and faciliatating with heart. This training is the best I have ever experienced. Every detail is thought of. I feel confident and excited to make a big difference in many people's lives combining my counselling background with hypnosis, quantum healing and other healing modalities.

Raj Penumatcha, India
I would recommend attending Coastal Academy due to the high standards the school holds to, on so many levels: - the overall classroom environment; the awareness of each student’s comfort level and learning style; the available supplies; the organization and amount of teaching material; the chance to meet graduates and other experienced hypnotherapists during the training; and finally the commitment and enthusiasm of the educators. I think the 3 week intensive course in not only good for learning about hypnosis but it is also an excellent tool to promote self growth. A great experience and an asset for any Student of Life.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course and feel excited to get started. Not only am I confident to begin my Hypnotherapy practice, but this has been a growing period for me as well. This I did not really expect but am pleasantly surprised. I can see how this will really help my clients balance hormones and improve their heart and arterial health.

Excellent course- Easy to understand and paced well. Couldn't have asked for a better trainer or Academy. Thanks!
This program has far exceeded my expectations. I always felt fabulously comfortable in this learning environment and felt supported and appreciated..
Lynn Swiriduk, Maine
Leslie and Rosa, I'm not sure where to begin to explain what your guidance and instruction meant to me during, and since, the 3 week intensive hypnotherapy program. The course material is extremely thorough and well distributed. I found the practical work electrically charged and exhilarating as I evolved from an insecure spectator to a competent hypnotist, then to a qualified hypnotherapist. As well, I thoroughly enjoyed the environment you both created in the classroom. I've made great friends in you and all my fellow classmates thanks to your warmth. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

"Without reservation, I highly recommend Coastal Academy of Hypnotherapy. The curriculum content is extensive and presented in a comprehensive manner that is condusive for all learning styles.

Students have an opportunity to gain confidence and knowledge through a balanced combination of reading material, oral presentations, written and practical experience.

Sandra A. Smith, BA, MH, CH.t, Ph.D Mountain Hypnotherapy and Wellness, Abbotsford www.mountainhypnotherapy.com
After having been to so many seminars, courses and the like……Leslie and Rosa have without a doubt in my mind set the bar so high I doubt anyone could match or beat it (ever!)
….I felt like I was at home every hour, and every day of the course. The course material was paced in such a manner that everyone ‘got it’….we all managed in our own way to produce results in the end. It has been an amazing journey, Thank you to all!
This was the most incredible information packed, excellently facilitated course I have ever taken. I received so much more than expected. Thanks Rosa and Leslie.
Jeannie Martin, White Rock, www.westcoasthypnosis.ca
It was such a supportive learning environment. Thank you Leslie. I felt as though I had come in search of myself- and I left having found it. Thank you!
Joelle Touchette, Vancouver
This has beeen a life changing experience for me. Having been a practicing RN for over 20 years, this course has opened up new ways of seeing old problems- thereby making cures possible. I have grown and expanded so much in these 3 weeks and for that I am forever grateful.
Basia Urbanski, Edmonton www.pureaccess.ca
While the financial aspects are undeniably important, and rewarding, the real benefit to me has undeniably been on a more spiritual and emotional basis. Helping people who need help is very important to me. I am also finding that my new understanding of Hypnotherapy and people generally is allowing me to change the way I live my life. These are skills you, as a teacher have allowed me to develop. It’s a little like discovering a new room in a house in which you have lived all your life. And suddenly things make more sense.
Rob Hadley, Vancouver www.vancouverhypnotherapy.org
Thank you very much. I learned a lot, grew, and enjoyed the course, instructor, exrecises, and students.
Sheri Patterson, Port Coquitlam
I am so happy I chose this course. I feel I am well prepared to deal wtih any situation that may present itself in Hypnosis. Thank You!
Candida Maghzian, England
I found Coastal Academy's Clinical Hypnotherapy Program to be outstanding. The curriculum is extensive and thorough, and having had previous training in Hypnotherapy, the knowledge of techniques and theories I have acquired in this program has been extremely beneficial and greatly improved my skills and confidence as an effective Hypnotherapist. In addition, Leslie's professional and relaxed teaching style nurtures a learning environment of trust, respect and fun.
Karen Laskey, New Westminster http://www.karenlaskey.com/
There is one lasting gift that I can give in appreciation for the knowledge, wisdom and empowerment that Leslie shared with me during my course. That gift is to take what I learned and continue to apply the techniques as I move through life for the higher good of all. The course was a very positive investment, for myself personally, and an added benefit for the people I help in therapy. I have easily incorporated the skills I learned into my holistic practice and have many ideas for creatively applying Hypnotherapy in my business. I also recommend this course to people that are interested in taking an evolutionary step in their personal development, and are open to expanding their awareness of themselves and changing self-defeating patterns. It's always an inside job, to change our lives, we must change ourselves. If you are a student that is ready, know that the teacher has appeared.
Karmyn Ayn, South Surrey http://www.karmynayn.com/
Great 3 week course which couldn't have been better. Great peers. I can think of no better place to refer someone with a sincere interest in the profession of Hypnothreapy.
Ashfan Ramji, West Vancouver
Leslie, you are the best instructor-ever. Awesome course, definitely will be recommending it to friends and clients.
Excellent course! I'm glad I decided to choose your Academy. Thanks a lot.
Dr. Grace Judio-Kah, Indonesia
Thank You Coastal Academy. Your teaching and learning style suited my needs and development allowing much time for me to study and gain an in depth knowledge of Hypnotherapy which I did not know existed. I feel a part of a truly unique community of Hypnotherapists and am already enjoying the rewards of this highly professional training program.
Jacqueline Kerr http://www.alternativedimensions.ca/
I chose Coastal Academy of Hypnotherapy after researching and interviewing numerous schools across Canada, and it proved to be an excellent choice. I entered the course with zero knowledge of hypnosis and graduated 3 weeks later feeling very confident in my abilities to provide Hypnotherapy to clients in need. Numerous inductions were taught, and the majority of the training was done hands on, with very little use of video based training. Leslie is an excellent instructor, ensuring you fully understand the course content and processes, keeps the class size small so no one gets left behind, and has a wonderful caring nature about her that will very much put you at ease. I highly recommend Coastal Academy as your “first choice” to learn Hypnotherapy!" This course exceeded my expectation- the variety and unbiased presentation of all practices and procedures allows the student to work with what best suits their individual characters. it's the best value I have ever received. Leslie your incredibly vast knowledge adn professionalism has been an inspiring example. I especially appreciated the spiritual content and the care and respect taken to insure that our own biases do not influence the level of care that our clients will get from us. We have been well trained in client-based therapy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
The amount of information convered and learned was amazing. It has helped me immendsely for my own personal growth and I look forward to a very rewarding career.
Vivian Belbeck, White Rock
Amazing! Unbelievable that on the 3rd day I could guide a person into a Hypnotic state. Leslie and Rosa are fantastic instructors.
Very calm and comfortable environmenet. Course outline was constructed in a very easy to follow and understandable way. I enjoyed every moment of it.
Chris Pataki, Burnaby
Taking the Hypnotherapy course with Coastal Academy, not only gave me a new career – but a new outlook on life. It has been the most valuable investment I have ever made, both personally and business wise.
Taking the Hypnotherapy Certified Training has been one of the best experiences I have had yet. I not only had the opportunity to meet wonderful individuals, but I acquired some of the most valuable tools for healing others as well as myself. The pace of study was good, allowing time for practice. Leslie's compassionate and supportive teaching approach was very encouraging. I have used my new found skills to help developmentally delayed children, and have seen noticeable results. The training I received at Coastal Academy of Hypnotherapy has proven to be invaluable, and I am grateful for my time spent there.
The Hypnosis class was very interesting and way more informative than I ever expected. Now that I am working as a Hypnotherapist, it is definitely the most enjoyable job that I have ever had. Leslie makes sure that each student thoroughly understands the material and is very supportive of all of her students, so I felt comfortable asking questions. i am very thankful that I found out about Coastal Academy.
Leslie has excellent ability for challenging and motivating her students. I appreciate the exceptional talent she demonstrates with both regression and past life regression therapy guiding individuals through the process in ways that work best for each person. She also eagerly gets involved in many different ways to increase public awareness of the benefits of Hypnotherapy thus raising the profile of the profession.
Kathrine Churchill MH CHt www.seabreezehypnosis.com
Attending this training was one of the best gifts I have given myself.
I didn’t know what to expect when I started this course but I have gained a lot of valuable knowledge and a toolbox of techniques to assist my clients in their healing journey.
This training has far exceeded my expectations! In fact, being in a non healing business (I am a printer) this has tremendously helped me in my business and I am confident it will help any one in business, marketing & sales, teaching, management, medicine and the healing arts.
Leslie McIntosh is knowledgeable and helps create an experiential environment that fosters ultimate learning with extreme passion, humor, sensitivity, and creativity with the utmost professional focus.
I highly recommend Coastal Academy because they continually update their training with the most up-to-date practices from HypnoBirthing to Forensic Hypnosis.
I have left Coastal Academy feeling secure that I am now able to improve peoples' lives dramatically utilizing my new found knowledge.
Jackie Maclean, Langley www.ThePowerWithin.ca
Coastal Academy is one of the best schools I have ever attended. Leslie not only teaches you, she shares all of her skills and knowledge. Leslie has a way of making everyone understand the entire course material. When you leave this course you have the both the knowledge and skills to start your own business. You are always welcome back to freshen up your skills and meet other students. Thank you Leslie for sharing your knowledge and helping me to change my life.
