It’s rare to meet someone such as Christopher, so clearly doing that which he was put on this amazing earth to do – namely to empower and transform the lives of others. 


And when you do have the good fortune enter Chris’s world, some incredible things begin to happen to you, and to all those around you. Do you recall that bumper sticker, popular a few years ago Magic Happens?  Well Christopher’s gift to is to convince clients and students alike, that there really IS magic. That not only does it happen, but it surrounds us constantly.  It never, never runs out and it is simply ours for the taking. All we need to do is reach out with a clear sense of purpose, with belief, with courage, and direct it to those areas of our lives that could use a little fairy dust. So thank you Chris for a truly amazing few months.

"The Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy course is worth its weight in Gold!

Chris is a very warm, sincere and compassionate trainer, who, not only imparts clear understanding with hands-on experience, but takes his students on a journey of refinement into professionally-confident therapists.

Everyone is encouraged to develop their own artistry and excellence.

Thank you so much.


I have recently completed Christopher's Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy training. Chris teaches with vast experience and knowledge all rolled into an easy to understand format. His experience and ability to respond to the needs of the group made for a dynamic and engaging class. He also introduced me to some incredible resources which I am currently utilising in my own practice. I have attended many courses and highly recommend Chris as a teacher that works with passion and dedication to support all of his students to be the best that they can be. Thank you Chris for bringing out in me a desire to really make a difference in the lives of those with whom I work with.

Kindest regards Lisa Brandis, Intuitive Reiki International
