NEW Testimonial

May 2017

First of all I would like to say how blessed and grateful I feel to be in your class.   I have learned so much in this first week out of the four weeks of training.   Thank you!!!    Also, thank you to you and your wife Indira, for providing such a warm and welcoming environment and good conversation.  That is something I will take with me forever.   And the cooking is amazing and something I hadn’t expected.  So again, thank you very much!


I also wanted to say, I had never been hypnotized before and even though I have done relaxation techniques in the past with my clients, I personally have never experienced it myself.   So, I thank you for the opportunity which was really important to me.   I must say though, I was very surprised at my reaction to it.  You put me under very quickly, but that wasn’t what I was surprised with.   I was surprised because of what I seen and felt.   When you said the word sleep...  I have seen a flash of white/silver light it was bright like a flash bulb then it went black/dark and I don’t remember anything until you counted me out.   I felt good and relaxed and happy, but I’m not sure what to think about my experience with the bright light I experienced.   LOL


What I enjoy most about your class, is not just the theory because we can read anything out of the book ourselves.   I love to learn from your experience and love the hands on practice.   Thank you so much for sharing all these invaluable gifts.


I have attached my weight loss script.  For my clients, I will customize it more as you have suggested.   I will implement their trigger foods, or emotional patterns etc... There is always room for improvement. :) 


Thank you very much again Padman, I cannot wait to be back in your class and learn so much more!

Testimonial from Dr. Shivani

May 2015

I took the Registered Hypnotherapist training program at WELLNESS HYPNOTHERAPY INSTITUTE, in April-May-2015. I was amazed by the high quality of instruction and one-on one personalized attention, not to mention the interactive sessions. It was like having private lessons in Hypnotherapy for the price of group sessions. The curriculum was equally balanced between theory and hands on practice. Padman always made sure that we learned to apply the techniques correctly and achieve results to develop confidence. He encouraged us to ask questions and stayed back after class to attend to individual queries. I give Padman’s R.Ht training a solid A+. I am convinced that I could not have made a better choice of a school for Hypnotherapy training. Thank you Padman for your sincerety, dedication and determination to make each one of your students the very best Hypnotherapist.

Good Luck and God speed.

Dr. SHIVANI DASS, P.hd., M.S.W., R.S.W.,C.R.C., N.C.A.C.I


Testimonial from Jeffrey LaCour

July 27, 2016

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Padman Pillai at the Louisiana Hypnotherapy Organization conference in New Orleans, LA. We had an interesting conversation about how so many people are medicated for every symptom our body experiences. This does not have to happen.

There is nothing supernatural or magical about hypnotism, and it remains a misunderstood and often-dreaded subject in the minds of the general public.

April 2016

Taking my Hypnotherapy training at Wellness Hypnotherapy of Edmonton with Padman Pillai was absolutely life changing. Not only did I learn about Hypnotherapy but with Padman's gentle support and guidance he created a safe environment that encouraged both emotional and spiritual growth for me. I now spend every day helping others in my own practice and I am grateful for Padman and Wellness Hypnotherapy Institute.
