Training, Workshops & Classes
" I had the pleasure of experiencing Avril's guidance, wisdom and knowledge while undertaking my NLP and hypnotherapy training. Thanks to Avril's insight and support, I was enabled to participate in the course with confidence and clarity, Avril was a fantastic mentor offering support and guidance throughout in a nurturing and considerate manner. A great deal of my learning throughout my training came from working with Avril who is a very talented, experienced and skilled therapist with immense insight and integrity.'

I joined Avril's course in October. I was at a really low point in life. I had come up against some pretty hard stuff and allowed it to layer itself on top of me to the point I was trapped within a straightjacket of 'issues'. My life was moving nowhere (in every way!). Since going along and experiencing everything that Avril led us through, I have made some incredible shifts in not only perspectives but in actions too. Since then, life is back to being a thrill for me. I have travelled to the opposite sides of the world, started to 'live' again, completed my novel and many other things. I wake up and look forward to what the day is bringing me. I have no idea what happened but I know it all changed that day. I am so very thankful for that!!!

" I trained in 2014-15 ..mine was an amazing journey discovering myself and changing my mind set. I know left my other job and only works for myself. It was the right decision. ..it is good for me. I know continue my journey with hypnotherapy and nlp as well as coaching. I can now combine mu love for nutrition and exercise and help people change their mindset in their journey of loosing weight. Also hypnotherapy helps me ..I do myself hypnosis as well as having sessions from Madeleine Martin and Avril Gill.
I'm so glad to have done it with avril as the group was small so we got lots of 1:1 support."
"I feel truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to be on the hypnotherapy diploma course in terms of the training itself, meeting my fellow classmates and the experiences of the group trances. I didn’t really know what to expect but if anything I thought it would be an opportunity to learn more of something I got a glimpse of on my NLP Practitioner course. I feel like I have learnt so much more and gained a valuable skill that can be given to others to help them on their journey as it has done for me. I never thought for one minute that I would find what I found on that course: Peace, trust & the ability to truly love life to the full again. Thank you ever so much! It met more than my expectations!"

"Can't recommend this course highly enough having just completed the diploma - it was everything I had hoped for and much more. I have gained so much not only in learning the skills to become a hypnotherapist but also personally. The teaching and support given throughout the course was fantastic and the small group numbers helps to create a supportive learning environment."
"It has been an amazing experience which gave me valuable insights I never expected. Specifically the work on communication, and rapport is directly applicable in my life and in my work.
The course exceeded my expectations, which were high. I have already recommended it to others." - Dr David J Mallon - 2014

You have assisted me in so many areas in my life I just had to say thank you a lot. I wish you a great success with all your efforts as they are completely life changing. I recommend your course to everyone as I know that with your course they will be in safe hands. Thank you." ---Steve

"Absolutely brilliant course. Avril is a fantastic teacher/coach. It was so much more than I expected it to be and have came a long way on an amazing journey. Loved the size of the groups, not just a number. Definitely well worth doing.."

Avril is a sensitive and clearly experienced therapist and mentor. She always creates a relaxed, open environment and using her many skills and experience gave me confidence in my own ability and the techniques to change. I have had 1:1 sessions with Avril for a number of different reasons from personal problems to coaching and mentoring, and each session was very rewarding, i achieved great changes and was also given techniques to take home to use. I have also attended many of her great workshops, referred friends and family to her and would highly recommend her to anyone. In every setting Avrils wealth of knowledge and training is always evident and shared, im still working through her recommended reading lists! Thanks Avril.

“Although I used self-hypnosis programs more than 10 years ago, I was never completely satisfied with the outcomes. In fact, I tested all types of self-hypnosis ranging from eBooks, tracks to a system based on scripts that were supposed to be read in a 'hypnotic manner. Then I decided to buy this course after clearing every doubt. Making this decision has created a vast difference in my life. This course is fully organized in a way that makes the materials simple to use. Fully satisfied!" ----Jessica
Avril Gill is an experienced and powerful practitioner who carries out her work in an unobtrusive and undemanding manner. She’s an approachable person whose patience allows her clients to relax and slowly get to the heart of the issues that block their ability to fulfil their full potential. I felt that what I had to deal with was small fry in the face of the bigger problems in the world and yet Avril took the time to listen and use her expertise to help me overcome personal issues that I had repressed for a very long time. The freedom that occurred as a result of my work with Avril gave me a deeper understanding of myself and greater self-confidence.

I can very much testify that Avril has a unique ability to help people in all walks of life through difficult situations, through her kindness, sometimes frankness, her ability to listen, breaking down problems, help people to explore their own thoughts and feelings, to really help coach people through the rigours of life.

Avril's warmth makes her not only a wonderful trainer, but a great coach too. She is passionate in her approach to personal development and practises what she preaches! I do like the way Avril takes techniques she has learned and adapts them for use in many different situations. Talented trainer and lovely lady.
