Thanks for the wonderful classes! And thanks for the technology which allowed me to be able to receive great lessons without the need of having to work towards a Canadian visa. I look forward to future new courses!

It is my professional opinion that this course is well-organized and very comprehensive. It is without question that mastery of this course material would enable a person to perform high-quality work in the field of hypnotherapy.

In the medical field few of my colleagues receive such well-organized and comprehensive training in the field of hypnotherapy medical doctors and psychologists would be well served by the certification offered by Orca.

Past president of The Canadian Holistic Medical Association (1987-88).

In my opinion the course material is excellent, well-organized, comprehensive, and covers the field very well. I was pleased to note that Dr. Milton Erickson is given so much prominent attention, and that his system of using hypnosis has been incorporated. I knew Dr. Milton Erickson personally, having met him in 1952 at the home of Mr. Aldous Huxley in Los Angeles.

My time with Orca has been an amazing learning experience. The course content, the instructor(s), the classes, the administration and students have all been exceptional.There is no doubt in my mind both Diane and Sheldon bring to the table expertise in the fields of counselling and hypnotherapy that would be hard to match anywhere - nationally or internationally. If you are considering counselling hypnotherapy or wanting to add or tweak these skills for your current practice I highly recommend you become involved with the Orca Institute. It will be time and money well spent.

Steven White, CH Former student

I have been a practicing hypnotherapist and over 25 years, I have taken many courses with some of the top Hypnotherapy schools in Canada and the United States. The Orca program is the most thorough, in depth program I've taken. The courses were all designed by Sheldon. His content and structure is based on real life experience teaching and practicing Counselling Hypnotherapy. He does not cut corners nor does he try to razzle dazzle clients with entertaining displays of magic. This is the real deal. No hype.

I have gained considerable new skills from the Orca course work and my practicum. Combined, they have allowed me to connect with my clients in a deeper and more meaningful way; facilitating increased therapeutic progress and efficacy. I highly recommend this program !!
