come to learn from Pete and his team

Pete empowered me and the whole class the things we can do and made us shine in our practical sessions. Overall, Pete is effective in his training methods and I enjoy very much the 10 days I spent here at The Pathlight Centre with Pete and the facilitators. I also believe the facilitators have contributed a lot to the learnings. Their contributions had made this course much more practical. If someone likes theory, he can read books. But if he wants practical application or ever want to make this a career, come to learn from Pete and his team.

many opportunities to practice our skills

I like the many opportunities to practice our skills in a practical manner during the course. The attentiveness of the instructors and facilitators were very useful in pointing out gems and opportunities during practices. I would like to embark on a career in hypnotherapy after this. I will definitely suggest this for my friends who are interested.

this is the place to get your accreditation

Pete comes highly recommended and he knows what he is doing. He is very encouraging for someone whom just came into the hypnosis world. Nonrestrictive, everything is possible. However, there is a learning process. For anyone who wants to make a career as a hypnotherapist, this is the place to get your accreditation. I am confident of the knowledge I received from Pathlight. I am able to do hypnotherapy, and this is an added advantage for me when doing psychotherapy, because at times, talk therapy cannot get through certain issues.

Hilton Ho, Psychotherapist
(Jan-Feb-Mar 2014 Weekend Batch)

This course is enlightening

A therapeutic tool that can help others in need; an alternative approach to assisting those whom I know. Also, its good means to setup a business via this career. Personally, I am able to experience a different me, my temper has mellowed. I tend to observe more on others, while they are expressing their views / during discussions. I can work on my child and I have changed my approach towards managing their school works and developments.

The instructor has a unique perspective on hypnosis and is highly insightful

His approach to conducting the course is efficient and highly effective. The course successfully equips students with the tools to deal with any given situation in a practical therapy setup. It has been extremely useful in understanding the framework for conducting effective therapy for clients utilizing hypnosis. I would encourage a course in hypnotherapy for anyone looking to broaden their scope in the field of therapy and social services.

Nisha Jhangiani, Hypnotherapist

The instructor is phenomenal

The instructor is phenomenal, excellent and all the optimist comment that I could give. The reason having said that is because he empowered me with his experience and knowledge.

Besides, Pete Tan the instructor, his ex-students, my seniors, Julieh and Lynn and others whose always be there for me for extra guidance.

Instructors readily answer questions we have

Instructors readily answer questions we have with different situations in therapy, for example, handling different client personalities. They also shared their own experiences in therapy to give me an insight on the types of situations to expect, when doing my own therapy.

Many domains related to but not Hypnotherapy per se. eg other therapies and techniques such as EFT, CBT, Gestalt are discussed to broaden my understanding of the relevant disciplines that are closely associated to improve the effectiveness and credibility of Hypnotherapy as a practice. I will find it useful to ground and centre myself as part of daily life and to work with my clients.

Mark Lim
(Jul-Aug 2016 Weekend Batch)

Pete is very knowledgeable and experienced …

in his field of practice. He is able to teach us by giving lots of useful advice and real-life experiences. Nancy is able to give very constructive feedback and advice regarding our practices, making us improve. She also shared lots of real-life cases to help us understand further.
By answering my questions honestly and sharing lots of experience, the instructors also gave us confidence to go out and practice, changing our perception that we need many years of education or high-level certifications before we can do professional work.

Chew Kai Xin
(May-June 2019, Weekend Batch)

The instructors were professional in the way they deliver the content …

They are also very approachable and answered many of my questions. They also provided numerous appropriate examples from real-life cases they have worked on, making the class fun and interesting.

Jonathan Chu
(March-April 2019 Weekend Batch)

I Remembered All the Facts Without Even Realizing That I Learnt It!

I was totally shocked with Pete’s unique way of teaching! I remembered all the facts without even realizing that I learnt it! I find his style very effective and I enjoyed every second of the course. Pete can explain concepts or things and answer questions in the simplest way.

I was actually quite nervous at first, but he knows exactly how to motivate or build up our confidence differently for each of us. He prepared us hard for what we might face when working with actual paying clients. I’m glad I have found the right instructor for myself. This course has given me more confidence and money and I wholeheartedly recommend this course without any thoughts.

Suparna Kapoor, Personal Fitness Trainer & Hypnotherapist
(September 2010 Weekday Batch)

Pete and Nancy are great instructors.

Their delivery and teaching methods were both conventional and unconventional yet very effective. Both are very knowledgeable of hypnotherapy as well as NLP.

fantastic reservoir of knowledge

Pete has a fantastic reservoir of knowledge on the subject. Being our instructor, I like how he delivers the program in an entertaining manner, showing the wealth of experience he has to further help us with understanding.  The techniques, like 5-Path is a fantastic method to help an individual overcome their issues. Of course with that said, the 7th Path is undoubtedly a great tool for renewal. This will help me overcome my own personal inhabitations and others.

Gosteloa Spancer, Deejay
(Mar-Apr 2014 Weekday Batch

Thumbs up! No regret!

The main reason I enjoyed and learnt so much from this course was Pete’s commitment to each of us. He has a very unique way of delivering the best throughout the 10 days training. He always has his best intention in mind, making sure everyone is able to get the best of the gems. I will definitely combine all these skills learnt with my numerology service. Now, not only have my client see how their numbers had influenced their life, they will also be able to travel inwards to discover and understand themselves better. Letting them know, they have all the resources they need within themselves.

learnt how to resolve my own problems and be more positive

Not only did I learn techniques on how helping others to resolve their issues, I too learnt how to resolve my own problems and be more positive about the world and myself. Through this course, I gain better understanding of what hypnosis really is, improve my confidence as a person, hypnotherapist, and a future psychologist. And also the ability to offer help to people in need of emotional, physical and behavior change.

Joen Choi, Certified Hypnotherapist
(December 2013 Weekday Batch)

Unconventional, shocking but effective

You can see and feel Pete’s compassion through and through. After a few days and can finally catch up on all the reading (only 4 hours of sleep at night) it was easier to follow Pete in class. It was dynamic, extremely fun and amazingly enough that in only 10 days I am confident that I have learned enough to start seeing clients and as time go will be able to increase and sharpen my skills. Yes, I will suggest this course to others.

Noraini Bawazier, Director
(July 2011 Weekday Batch)

He’s the best trainer I’ve had!

This course is definitely helpful in terms of professional and personal development, especially 7th Path. I gained more understandings and insights about our emotions and the reasons why people react differently under the same situation. This leads to better understanding of ourselves and people around us. I enjoyed myself tremendously during these two weeks of trainings. Pete is so knowledgeable and well-read in this subject that he injected so much fun and positive learning attitude in us. We can feel his passion about hypnosis from the way he delivers the course. He’s the best trainer I’ve had!

Shann Tan, HR Personnel
(June 2014 Weekday Batch)

Well knowledge trainers …

What I like are the useful techniques taught for life issues (to help others), and never underestimate brain power!
