"Bruce’s hypnosis training class was truly life changing for me. Before class started I knew that I would be learning what I needed to know to become a confident and effective hypnotherapist. What I didn’t know was how profoundly the class and hypnosis would change me! I am more calm, centered, confident and open to accepting and inviting changes in my own life. I have been looking for a career in which I could help people and truly enjoy my work, and I have found it. Thank you to Bruce for his impressive hands-on training and for instilling in us the confidence to practice hypnosis. I am looking forward to taking more specialized classes with Bruce!"

"Just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude with a testimonial. Bruce is amazing! He is the best kind of teacher– not only is he effective in teaching concepts and challenging ideas, but he also has the uncanny ability to inspire and empower students simply by being the person that he is. Thanks to Bruce, I became certified in hypnotherapy. But more importantly, I felt like I learned a lot about the nature of the human mind and how to experience lasting satisfaction and happiness in life. Life is all self-hypnosis, and Bruce helped us realize that we could be in the driver’s seat of life by putting into practice the art of hypnosis. For which, I feel immeasurable gratitude."

-Kieran McManus, Certified Hypnotherapist, Portland, OR

"I’ve known Bruce since 2008 and his teachings have changed my life in profound ways and all for the betterment of myself and all who encounter me. I’ve been fortunate enough to not only take his course, but I’ve also spent 100’s of hours in his presence. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that you won’t find a kinder, less-judgmental or wiser person than Bruce, but he’d never boast or brag, so most people don’t realize the level of greatness they are in the presence of. Short Version: Bruce Terrill is a master teacher who is so extremely good at what he does, most of the time his students don’t even realize they’re learning and growing because it is so smooth and natural."

-Robert Bury, Owner, Driving Designs, Vancouver Washington

"Bruce is one of the most amazing teachers I have ever had. He teaches his class and meets with clients with the utmost respect and integrity, always acutely aware of and responding to each individual’s needs in every moment. He creates a fun and relaxing environment in class; a place where I always looked forward to going to no matter how stressed out my life was. His class went way above and beyond what I expected and what was required by NGH. I am forever grateful to Bruce for providing such a rich experience and fertile ground for personal growth and for learning the skills needed for a successful hypnotherapy practice. After taking his class, I feel confident with what I learned to be able to help people make incredible changes in their lives and to continue making changes in my own life as well. Thank you Bruce!"
