My Review on Dolores Cannon Online Hypnotherapist Course
Yay or Nay
Today I bought my Dolores Cannon Quantum Healing Hypnosis Online course. I will describe my experience with the product as I study it. I must state that this is my very first experience with hypnosis and that, after reading some online reviews about the method, I was hesitant to buy it. However I couldn't take it off my mind and today I finally succumbed. I hope 700 USD are worth it.
Today was my first day. So, after paying via Paypal I tried to access the course with little success. Apparently my username didn't exist. That delay was unfortunate since I only had 5 hours today to start studying and instead I spent them trying to contact someone. I think they should specify that they, first, need to activate your account and that this may not be done automatically. So after a couple of phone calls, two emails and two message in their FB page I received an email letting me know they had activated my account. Ok, I had misspelled my user name but a live person answering my email sent it to me so although I was not able to start studying right away I manage to have a very quick first glimpse of the course. Not impressed. And, now, after a second glimpse, slightly disappointed. HOWEVER, I have not watched any of the videos. So let's see how this will turn out to be...
PS Later on I discovered the automatic response email with my username in the junk mail folder.
Day 1 after purchase
So last night I managed to watch the first video that lasts 1 hour approx. I felt a lot better after watching it. At first I thought it would be a drag to have to listen to the first hour where she introduces herself and her work because I had already watched free videos on that, but it turned out that she gave interesting information in that video. So I started to recover my faith in the product.
Also, last night, while the whole issue with loggin in was getting resolved I managed to google an author she talks about so by the time I watched the first video I already had more knowlegde about hypnosis and it was a lot easier to understand.
Today, Day 1 after purchase, I have watched 2 videos and am currently watching number 3. Literally. It turns out that the program they use can not be forwarded. You can pause it and rewind it but if you rewind it too much you have to watch the whole thing again. Now this is not the issue I have at hand, but somehow the video part got stuck and only the sound kept going. I wouldn't have minded but they insisted on paying attention to the video part in this video in particular and not so much the sound, so I needed to do something to get the video going. Well, the image ended up turning black. I reloaded and... I had to start all over again. So right now it is getting played while I type =) Multitasking is a good use of my time =)
Now, their customer service... it has improved today! =) I'm getting answers to my questions (by email) almost right away. That is something I really appreciate because I wont have too much free time to devote to my studying the course so each and every second counts for me. You only get two weeks to watch the whole course (18 hours of video) and if you have a full time job, plus a family... (I do consider my two dogs and boyfriend as my family =)).
Still Day 1
... and more hiccups.
Well, I think i spoke too soon... or rather I wrote too soon. That one email was replied to right away, by mistake I think. I was told that i should use Bookmarks in order to not encounter the same issue again. I replied right back asking for instructions on how to use bookmarks. Almost two hours have passed since that email.
I just had another issue with the image going black and not wanting to replay where I had left off... so now I have to wait one whole hour and 20 minutes for the video to play all the way to the last scene I watched. At this point I think their customer service should either put her act together or make room for someone more efficient to look after customers that paid 700 for the product
Well, at least this gives me an opportunity to update this lens.
What can I say. I like what I see, ... err, I mean i like what I was watching. Dolores is giving very good information and examples and is explaining everything really well and clearly. On the other hand I had read on a forum that someone had taken this same course, online, and that they were not able to put anyone on trance. So... once again the proof is in the pudding. I want to believe that, as when studying any other subject, there are students for whom certain topics are easier than others and there are students who can adjust to the teaching style of a particular teacher and some others simply can't.
Another person said that she had gone to a live training and Dolores failed to put one of the attendees in trance. This can be taken with a grain of salt since there is no proof this actually happened. But she does say in her website that there are no bad subjects just bad hypnotists...
One more thing, I noticed that in their FB page they have removed the option to post messages to their timeline. I guess this was after my post from last night asking for help. Oh well. Now the only way to communicate with them through their FB page is by writing under their own posts or sending them a private message. The thing with the private message is that some people fail to see them, this is the reason I posted directly to their timeline. I guess we can send an inbox message and comment in their post that we have sent them a message =)
You find all kinds!
I'm shocked by their customer service. I'm pleasantly shocked by them.
Although it took her two hours, or more, to answer my email she did it in a very positive and cheerful tone! I was frustrated and upset when I wrote both emails, especially the second one, and her reply felt so light and positive.
Of course by the time I received it I had already found a solution to my problem so the frustration was gone but still, I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that she did not react to my negative energy.
Good for her =)
Day two after purchase
It has been an intense and intensive day. I have taken 86% of the course. I have spent the whole day at home watching videos and reading the notes. It has been a very good day.
Dolores explains everything very clearly and eloquently. She tells you the reasons for every step. The samples she presents of regressions she has performed are impressive. I wish I manage to do it the way she does. It seems effortless! It flows. She leads the flow, she directs the client to give her the answers she requests, she directs the subconscious. It all seems to work wonderfully. I shall see what my results are when I attempt it for the first time.
Today I finished my online course. I spent all of Friday, Saturday and this morning in the house with a marathon of QHHT =)
I have written then test scoring 17/20 in less than 6 minutes (they give you 30 minutes to complete it and 3 chances). You can review your answers however they don't tell you what the right answers were. In my case I knew I was confused about 2 so I knew if the answer I gave was not the right one there was only one other choice, so now I know what the right answers were to those 2. The third one was my mistake for reading too fast and actually skipping to read the right answer. I recognized it immediately when I read it. So although I had 3 wrong answers I know what the right procedures are.
All in all I loved the course. I loved the information given by Dolores. I loved the cases she presented. It all made sense to me. If you have read some of my other lenses you know I have been acquainted with the different levels of awareness, through meditation, for almost 25 years so this made so much sense to me.
Now I just hope to be able to guide my subjects properly and that their subconscious trusts me to help them so that they give me access to it.
So, all in all, I am very glad with my purchase. Now I need to practice. Hopefully next Friday I will be able to practice with my first subject. This week I will be working full time with no spare time to test the techniques, but I hope to have Friday off and start.
I will receive an invitation to join the forum of dedicated practitioners and hope to find it as fascinating as the course.
And 3 days after my payment...
So yesterday, 4 days after my payment, I received an email telling me to read that email before starting my course... :S
I wrote back explaining the mistakes I had made based on the info given on that email and I got an out-of-office auto reply. So I wrote to the alternate email address... and no one has replied yet.
Oh my, oh my.
Yes, customer service is a good area of opportunity for improvement for Dolores's company. Of course Paypal sent them the notification of my payment one day after I had paid so I guess that didn't help much.
A few weeks after the course
It just keeps getting better and better
I was invited to join the forum and found an awesome community of like minded generous and spiritual people. What a joy they all are!
I have gotten to practice the technique only once so far and although I did not get the results I was expecting I can say it was a productive session. I keep reading, studying and learning more and more in the forum, so I think my technique is improving.
Final veredict: It is worth the cost. It is worth the time and it is worth the effort. Yes, if you can afford it I say go for it!
All the best and much love and light for your spiritual quest!
