The hypnotherapy certification training led by Jack and Evelyn was both educational and experiential, not to mention very fun!

I’m a Licensed MFT working with brain injured patients. Adding hypnotherapy to my practice not only advanced my personal learning and growth, but enhanced the therapeutic quality and benefits experienced by my patients.

Often, as a result of stroke or other type of brain injury, some patients experience weakness or paralysis on one side of their body. Through hypnosis, for example, one of my patients regained the ability to move a part of his body that had been paralyzed by stroke. This is just one example of the healing properties hypnotherapy can provide.

In my practice, I now frequently integrate hypnosis to help patients with other problems such as stress management, anxiety and phobias, and weight loss.

I can’t thank Jack and Evelyn enough for their amazing teaching and training! *

I completed the 6-day Hypnotherapy Certification. Excellent!

Jack and Evelyn are great teachers. Material is presented clearly and thoroughly. Highly recommend. *

David Sutcliffe

Actor, Filmmaker, Core Energetics Practitioner

I wanted to thank you for the excellent training. The actual content exceeded my expectations. Not only did I learn some valuable techniques, but also a new way to conceptualize the people with whom I provide services.

I found the material to integrate well with my background in clinical psychology and presented theory and practice in a manner that was thorough, succinct, and humanistic…the knowledge base I acquired from it was more than worth the cost of tuition, travel time and attendance. *

Eric Yelsa, PhD

Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Utah Hospital

I completed the Hypnosis workshop in February 2016. Evelyn and Jack were amazing.

They made the workshop fun, light-hearted, yet very rigorous. They created an effective learning environment. I would definitely take more workshops with them, and highly recommend their programs. *

Monique Evans, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I want to express my gratitude to both of you for your professionalism; and succinct, informative training.

In my personal experience as a professional assisting others through the art of listening, intervening, educating and healing; I found that this training has been one that has impacted me the most—as well as a great tool to assist my patients in impacting their quality of life.

I thought that the training was balanced in the sense of teamwork (both perspectives male/female) and in utilizing your personal experience and wealth of knowledge in hypnotherapy. Providing a brief history and implementing concepts—as well as hands-on training—was attuned to my style of learning.

The information was not overwhelming, but digestible. I was able to follow easily and your availability to answer questions and clarify concepts was important for me. I would definitely come back if you offer a second level to this training. *

Martin Flores, M.A.

Certifed Brain injury Specialist, Centre for Neuro Skills

The training was informational, enjoyable, easy to learn and understand. I liked that the class was small and personable.

I really liked that you made the information practical and easy to apply. I enjoyed all the practice we did in class with my fellow hypnotherapists and the guidance you provided us throughout.

I valued the experiences and tips that you shared with us because they will be of great help to me in my private practice.

I was truly impressed by your level of knowledge and professionalism and I would be more than happy to refer my fellow colleagues and friends who are interested in learning hypnosis or NLP to the Center for Advanced Life Skills. *

Linda Mandozai, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In the past decade, I’ve completed numerous training courses and learned valuable skills and techniques, but I have to admit that NLP, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy® trainings are, most likely, the most important things I’ve ever done in my life.

Before attending the training I was hesitant, as I didn’t know exactly what to expect. But now, after witnessing the results and differences in both my personal and professional life (especially after taking the NLP Master Practitioner certification training), I feel grateful and proud to say that I made the right decision by choosing the Center for Advanced Life Skills.

I was lucky to study with Evelyn Wang and Jack van Landingham, who are both highly qualified, professional and the most generous trainers I’ve ever had. And their kindness, patience and wittiness made the learning experience lots of fun! *

I wish I could convey the value of these courses through this testimonial so that everyone can see how beneficial, inspiring, and life-changing they are.

Jack and Evelyn guide you in becoming aware of the power you have to change yourself and your outlook on any circumstance. I saw immediate results in both my work and personal life through the application of my learnings.

Thank you, Jack and Evelyn, you’ve made a lasting impact for my life. I will carry your guiding influences with me through every walk of life. *

Jack is the real deal! *

Carmit Bachar

Multi-Platinum Recording Artist, The Pussycat Dolls

I have nothing but positive things to say about Evelyn, Jack, and the content and quality of their training.

I just completed the 6 Day Modern Hypnosis Certification. The learning environment is fantastic, and I’m more than confident in the skills I’ve attained. As far as I’m concerned, the balance between theory and hands-on practice was perfect.

I’d encourage anyone interested in learning hypnosis, or one of their other programs, to contact them. I’ll definitely be returning for further trainings. Thank you so much. *

Marc Cooper

At 41, I made the decision to try hypnotherapy to help me change my life. I came to Evelyn for help with my eating habits and, as a result, my life changed drastically. I’m now the healthiest I’ve EVER been. I’ve lost 100 pounds and am in the best shape of my life.

I went from not wanting to touch—let alone eat—vegetables to enjoying spinach and kale salads. It’s funny how I still get the shocked looks from family and friends who knew of my past eating habits.

I tell everyone that hypnotherapy helped me change my life. Evelyn was a true blessing, and she helped me through a serious mental road block. I have now gone on to inspire others to make healthier lifestyle changes as well. I thank Evelyn from the bottom of my heart for being part of my journey. *

Yvonne Parker

This training has changed my life. I shall always be grateful to have spent the time and money for this wonderful experience with Jack and Evelyn.

It’s had a huge impact on every part of my life, and I can’t recommend them, or their training highly enough. The atmosphere was relaxed, the information wasn’t too overwhelming and just felt easy and fun.

I have felt like a happier human being since I did this, what more can I say? A big THANK YOU to both of you! *

Lorraine Wilkinson, C.Ht.

Certified Hypnotherapist

I really enjoyed it. There were certain aspects that I found especially fascinating. Your blend of knowledge and common sense were astounding.

You explained everything with great clarity, and always with a great measure of common sense. You were not afraid to share your knowledge with us in all honesty and straightforwardness.

I found your class very valuable and I saw new aspects because of your method of teaching. Thank you so much for a wonderful class. *

Regina Dell'Oro

What a life changing and re-energizing experience. From the first day of class, I learned to implement small changes to myself and my business.

The changes that Jack and Evelyn made me aware of from their expertise has allowed me to connect not only to my clients; but to my wife, kids and friends. Just sitting back and being able to read and understand people and respond in their model of the world has allowed my business to expand and make more money.

I am truly grateful for you. You guys are blessed with a great skill set, and I look forward to taking more courses in the upcoming months. Love you guys. *

Ayden Masudi

President, College Planning Solutions

Whether you’re a professional seeking to add more modalities to your practice, or you’re looking for a change in career, I highly recommend the exceptional trainings at Center for Advanced Life Skills for a solid foundation.

I acquired more practical understanding here than I did at another school that I attended for an entire year—at a much higher cost! I also got more here than I did from a “big name” NLP training I went to.

The trainers, Jack and Evelyn, not only believe in what they do, they obviously love what they do as well, which made for a fun and authentic learning experience.

And by applying some of the unique things I learned, I more than doubled my income! I assure you, you will NOT be disappointed. *

Marie Valdez, C.Ht.

Certified Hypnotherapist

I LOST 30 LBS! – Evelyn is a wonderful hypnotherapist who truly cares about her clients. As an only ‘partial’ believer in complementary treatments, I felt reassured at our first visit when she presented her ideas in a very rational, reasonable way.

After several more visits, I came to know her as incredibly thoughtful, insightful, and compassionate person. I also consider her very ethical and trustworthy.

Overall, we had several sets of sessions that helped me understand my motivations and blocks to achieving my goal, and as a side effect really reduced my stress for days afterward … I definitely recommend Evelyn as a valuable help to anyone who is considering hypnotherapy whatever their goals may be. *

Tina Olmstead

Medical Research Scientist

If you want to make a change in your life, little or small, Jack is the man that will help you reach your goals.

After one session, I started to see some immediate changes in my life. All the answers to my questions and worries were inside my head, Jack just pointed me in the right direction and gave me the tools for my success.

I can say my life has changed dramatically because of this work. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for Jack, and all the great things he’s shown me to do with the power of my mind.

I’ve seen improvements in every area of my life. My overall mental and physical health has improved tremendously. I’m graduating college this year and have many options on what I want to do after graduation! I’ve learned that the world is what I want it to be, and that there are no limits on this earth except for the boundaries you place on yourself. *

Agassi Bagramyan

The NLP Training is an invaluable skill set that positively changed me and the way I practice.

I was skeptical about Time Line Therapy, however it’s a very natural technique that produces fast results. I’ve learned how to help others shed limiting beliefs and emotions.

The NLP training includes many tools that I began using right away. Besides that, now I listen differently, and feel a stronger connection with my clients and other people.

Jack and Evelyn are engaging and knowledgeable teachers that made learning NLP easy and fun. *

Maxine Jurgens

Certified NLP Master Coach, Organize to Thrive

The event was truly amazing. Additionally, I personally had a big transformation on certain undesirable habits. When I got back to work, I used my new skills and increased my income in just the first day.

Your entire program has paid off by 10 times the investment I made, just in the first few days of work. I can’t wait to attend all your other advanced training programs. *

Brian Safdari

President, College Planning Experts

Exceeded expectations! I am forever changed by the clarity received from this experience.

Jack and Evelyn helped me understand that the “lie” that we tell ourselves, soon develops a partnership with the truth. This unconscious relationship marries our experience and gives birth to the very darkness that we spend a life time avoiding.

I’ve learned that depression, guilt, anger, fear and anxiety are like scratched lenses that limit or cloud my vision, purpose and perception; while logic keeps me looking for someone else to adjust, fix or even replace them for me.

Jack and Evelyn were able to illustrate the importance of terrain; giving me the unconscious ability and resources needed to access my authentic self, resulting in a powerful, mindful, empathic and emotional connection that communicated one singular message: I AM PROUD OF YOU. Explosive!

I now have a reference for the unknown and a voice that guides my reason and belief in my military clients. *

Sammie Tibbs, United States Marine Corp, Retired

Certifed NLP Master Coach, Certified Military Readjustment Specialist

It was fun and exciting to attend each class, as it was full of new information, practical examples, and engaging practice.

Learning these life changing techniques was a great experience that I highly recommend to everyone, as it becomes valuable in our everyday living.

It’s also for anyone who seeks quick and permanent results for their clients. *

Erika Segura, C.Ht.

Certified Hypnotherapist, Certified NLP Trainer, Certified Instructor of Hypnotherapy

Great! Class was amazing. I learned so much about how to coach future clients. Jack and Evelyn are amazing teachers, super patient, and teach the concepts easily. *

Monish Subherwal

Certified NLP Master Practitioner, The Empowerment School

Wow – what a great, great two days. The class was so full, and taught me so much! I really appreciate all the insight you shared about helping clients and all the tools you gave us. You both were so full of love and kindness.

Your class helped me feel more comfortable and safe in my own strengths. I loved the practices and I loved your input into them…It was real life, and the tools and tips you gave were really useful to help us when we are on our own.

I thank you for your generosity in sharing these useful tips and for sharing your Energy Tune Up also. I had such a great time, I felt like I was far away in a seminar and felt blessed that we could share this all together.

It was a perfect group spirit, and I learned so much. I feel much freer about speaking up and saying what I am feeling. Both of your feedback and examples from your own sessions were helpful and gave me confidence in myself.

Thank you again. I am very, very grateful to you both and hope we can do some things together. Your other classes are appealing to me. I love the way you integrate them all. *

Laurie Armer

I was skeptical at first whether to take NLP or not. I do lots of negotiation and persuasion, and I’m an expert on body language. After taking NLP, I’m now a ‘baller’ in the field. They don’t just teach you techniques, but what makes the techniques work and why. *

Ehab Wazir

Certified NLP Practitioner

Thank you so much for everything. It has been a wonderful experience … the class was GREAT and the teachers even better! *

Janni Mortensen

Certified NLP Master Practitioner

Thank you for a great Master Practitioner training. It was fun and thorough. Jack and Evelyn were generous and knowledgeable—they made sure we really understood the material. The class size was just right—highly recommended for NLP Practitioners to take their skills to the next level! *

Dave Petzold, C.Ht.

Certified Hypnotherapist, Certified NLP Master Coach

I started sessions with Evelyn after I had an emotional breakdown causing me to be hospitalized. From my very first session with Evelyn, I realized that though I had talked about things with previous therapists, I was never given any tools to truly let go.

After two sessions with Evelyn, I fully let go and had no more emotional pain from many things I had since I was a child. I now look forward to the future and what I choose it to be. *

Stephanie Eubanks, RN

Amazing! Jack is a wonderful, passionate, knowledgable, and inspirational teacher! *

Traysiah Spring, C.Ht.

You and Evelyn are simply amazing! That 2-day workshop just brought everything together for me…not only for Quantum-Touch…but in so many areas and on so many levels.

To just say it was powerful doesn’t quite hit the mark either, but it was truly life-changing in that I feel a marked shift inside of me!

I can’t thank you enough for holding the safe space that you did in your lovely office. You and Evelyn both have such a wonderful way of making people feel so welcome, relaxed, and completely safe!

And your slide presentations were excellent…so professional, clear, and helpful in explaining the concepts. And of course we were all so grateful to receive so many tools in the form of handouts, quotes, links, books, films, etc. that you so generously shared and we can now add to our toolbox!

You went above and beyond to maximize our learning experience and it is so very much appreciated! *

Judy Hersch

I have had two sessions now with Evelyn, and I believe I have had success in those two sessions.

She is VERY thorough and you feel completely comfortable and cared for by her. She is very candid and real. I highly recommend her hypnotherapy services for multitudes of issues. She’s good. *

Karen Downey

Certified Medical Manager

Wow! The Quantum-Touch training has brought me to a new understanding of energy healing.

Jack and Evelyn’s personal and professional method of coaching and training has such powerful results. It has sparked a light within me to embrace my calling in serving others.

You learn as much about yourself as you do about energy healing. I am looking forward to mastering all the tools available in these courses… *

Eduardo Romero

Shaman

An amazing energetic experience! The tools I learned to run energy for intentional healing was so exciting to feel and I can’t wait to start using my new knowledge of Quantum-Touch.

You two are amazing individuals and the duo dynamic is so awesome. Thank you both and I hope to see you in another class soon! *

Amora Grinan

It was such a pleasure to meet such fantastic, like-minded people!

I love Quantum-Touch and have a better understanding of how to draw upon it for healing my friends and family and, perhaps, people drawn to me for that purpose.

Thanking you so much for teaching me this wondrous skill! I will always treasure it! *
