“Originally, I intended to come to The Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy to acquire some helpful tools for my main career path towards Doctoral Psychology. I had plans of moving down to Florida to acquire the basic 300 hours, earn my Hypnotherapist certificate, then return home in the spring to attend Graduate School. Yet, on a break from Hypnotherapy classes, I travelled back home to set up all my upcoming graduate classes, but something didn’t feel right. My original path was shadowed by my overwhelming desire to continue my career in Hypnotherapy. I dropped out of upcoming graduate school and decided to remain at The Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy for all 500 hours, and I am eternally grateful I made that choice. Not only did I discover my true passion in life through such brilliant teachings, but I also discovered a Spiritual peace of which I had never previously known. Matthew did not impose any Spiritual teaching upon me, but after a great deal of reflection, I embraced the peaceful loving teachings he offered. Now, I continue to practice and share these teachings with others through my current thriving hypnotherapy business. Thanks Matthew, you helped me discover the highest path for myself.”
