Text Box: Hi Ron,
After I sent the first email to you, I reviewed in my mind my last two clients, where I thought I was only using some of the techniques from the training, and then I realized I actually followed the whole process; it flowed so well, and I wasn't consciously going step by step so I didn't notice. Wow!
Kaye Lunsford, M.Ed.
Text Box: “My wife Kay and I  recently participated in the "Intermediate" week of training at the Milton H. Erickson  Institute in Phoenix.  Our consensus is that, although there was some good material, our your training experiences gave us far more in skill building. In fact, our knowledge and skills were second to none among the more than 30 participants.  

This is the first time we have had a chance to make a comparison with any other training program, and we are both satisfied that yours is far ahead of that one, at least. Thank you !

Ben Bogia, Ph.D.
