Literally changed my Life!

Meriah Pettersen of Windsong Hypnotherapy

Have you ever wondered what is would be like to finally figure out what you want to be when you grow up? Not only that but to also find a School and an Educator who can help you to learn what it means to understand more about who you are and how you show up to the world in the process. Discovering Linda Campbell & The Horizon Center School of Hypnotherapy literally changed my life. From the well thought out educational materials and safe environment that Linda creates in and out of her classroom, to the personal work I had not anticipated would be so healing & supports me in holding space for others. Learning the art of Client Centered Hypnotherapy under Linda’s guidance has allowed me to open a successful private hypnotherapy practice, to feel more energized and fulfilled at the end of my day than I do when I walk in the door and to be empowered to create the life for myself and my family that I have always had on my vision board. If you are looking to effect change in your own lives and to learn how to support & empower change in the lives of others this is absolutely the right school and journey for you!

Expert at her craft and an excellent teacher

Linda Dawson-Reid

I cannot recommend The Horizon School of Hypnotherapy and Linda Campbell highly enough. I have taken many advanced education and personal development courses and it is a rare thing indeed to find someone who is an expert at their craft and an excellent teacher. Linda Campbell is both. She is also supportive and will do whatever it takes to help you become successful as a practicing hypnotherapist. It is so important that a course about working with people does not rely on book learning alone. The course content is thorough and there is lots of time for self reflection and practice with fellow students and volunteer friends and family. Before the course is finished you will work with several people and know that you can take the skills you have learned to really make a difference, for yourself and your clients.

Far exceeded my expectations!

Jenn Chan

I completed my Hypnotherapy training with Linda in 2018. This course far exceeded my expectations. I have always been interested in the habits & behaviors of people, how the brain works and the benefits of Hypnosis. Linda is very skilled at delivering the course through real life relatable examples, quality written materials, in person weekends and additional online & video content. The classes were always planned & structured however, also allowed for the class to address any topics that were relevant. Linda’s natural teaching style & genuine passion for her profession inspires passion in her students & gives them the ability to learn with ease, as well as her ability to provide students with a safe, comfortable environment to be expressive and grow their skills. Whether you are interested in opening a practice or are looking to add skills to other areas of your life, this course will open up many possibilities for you both professionally and personally. Linda continues to be a great mentor and teacher.

phenomenally talented practitioner and also an engaging teacher

Carmen Spagnola

I am so happy I decided to study hypnotherapy with Linda. Of all the post-secondary and continuing education I have done, this was by far the most value for the money. She has the rare quality of being a phenomenally talented practitioner and also an engaging teacher – not everyone can excel at both roles, but she does.I would recommend her course because she not only has years of technical experience and a wealth of knowledge to share, but also holds a teaching degree and it shows. Her presentation of the material was detailed, well organized, and comprehensive. She’s also a very compassionate, sensitive, and attentive facilitator when it comes to group sharing and discussion. I looked forward to every class and was sad when it was over!Learning hypnosis is a life-changing experience whether you go on to practice professionally, simply incorporate parts into your current therapeutic work, or are just interested in learning how to make improvements in your own life. It truly is an indispensable life skill with so many practical applications and I would recommend Linda’s course without reservation. Carmen Spagnola

comprehensive program that covers everything I needed to know to start my practice

Liana Foley Arbutus Hypnotherapy

I highly recommend this program taught by Linda Campbell. It is a comprehensive program that covers everything I needed to know to start my practice: theory, techniques, ethics, applications, starting a business and more. The written material provides a broad and deep foundation to build on and has become my go-to reference. Linda presents the material with skill and compassion and draws the best out of her students. She is immensely supportive and genuinely wants her students to succeed, and to that end, she does everything she can to help them do so. The program provides ample opportunity for students to practice and grow their skills to be ready to help clients right away.

couldn't be happier with the quality of the education I received

Denise McMorris

I highly recommend this program! I feel very grateful to have found Linda and taken her Hypnotherapy course. Her philosophy and strategies resonated with me immediately. The year flew by and here I am, having graduated only recently, and already getting great results and enjoying a quickly growing clientele! I honestly couldn't be happier with the quality of the education I received, as well as the ongoing support which continues indefinitely. She made a point of cultivating a connectivity with my fellow students, and I know that I have a family of contemporaries that I can turn to for support at any time.

The course exceeded my expectations!

Niki Allard

I graduated from Linda Campbell’s Hypnotherapy course in 2019. I was looking for new tools with which to work with children and families. The in-person week ends were the highlight of the course for me. Linda brought structure and planning to each day and also had time to explore the needs and queries of the students. We were given many opportunities for hands on practice under careful supervision to which I credit the ease with which I was able to launch my own practice upon completing the course. Linda lead the class with an inspiring blend of enthusiasm, experience, wisdom and curiosity. She skillfully created an environment that was safe, exciting and supportive.

Linda's training is top-notch.

Kai Cheng Thom

Linda Campbell's Horizon Center School of Hypnotherapy is a fantastic personal and professional learning experience that has given me a thorough background in hypnotherapy, as well as many practical tools I can use with my clients. Having previously completed a Master's Degree in Social Work, countless professional development trainings, and over ten years in the fields of mental health and complementary health, I am confident in saying that Linda's training is top-notch. Linda brings not only a wealth of hypnotherapeutic skill and knowledge to her classroom, but also fantastic teaching methodology, ethical integrity and enthusiasm for her students' growth. I would highly recommend The Horizon Center to anyone looking to enter the field of hypnotherapy, or to expand their existing therapeutic practice. - Kai Cheng Thom, Master of Social Work, Master of Science (Applied) Couple & Family Therapy, Certified Professional Coach

Are you ready to embark on an amazing journey?

Aniko Vaszolyi

When you choose to train with Linda, you are signing up for an amazing journey! Not only do you get great training in an inspiring environment, but you also go through a positive personal transformation. Besides the training material there are hours and hours of practice built into the program. You practice on your classmates, they practice on you, then the circle gets bigger and you start to apply what you learned on your loved ones. Very soon after starting the course you feel that you have a wonderful tool that improves your life and the lives of others around you. The possibilities with Hypnosis are endless. I can’t count how many “mini-miracles” we had in and outside the classroom during the 9 months. We experienced financial growth, health improvements and gained tremendous confidence compared to how we started out. Only 6 weeks into the training I changed jobs, and started working in a position that finally fulfilled all the standards I set for myself. Linda encourages and helps you in all aspects of the training, while fully respecting your needs and interests. Something very few teachers do. Rather than teaching you her way of therapy, she purposely shows you other avenues so you can explore and choose for yourself. How much you will actually take out of this experience is dependent upon how much energy you are willing to invest into it. One thing is sure, you are in the best of hands. The only question that remains: Are you ready to embark on an amazing journey?
