TRAINING testimonials


'I would wholeheartedly recommend TAG training for both the diploma and practitioner course, I found that all of the trainers offered different criteria’s to the course which made it the most entertaining, informative and educational course I have attended and still value them with high esteem. Not only was the Hypnotherapy course above excellent, the business modules on the marketing enabled me to commence running a successful practice from the outset. In addition ‘post course’ support was consistently available from the tutors, which really helped me maintain my confidence and capability levels, especially during my early stages of setting out as a therapist. I would recommended TAG training 110% and am planning to train further with them, as soon as I can.'

'Just a quick line to say a really big thank you for teaching me over the last ten months. It has been a real joy to learn a completely fascinating subject, in such a relaxed an enjoyable environment. You are a brilliant tutor, and I'm looking forward to the Masters now!'

'Just wanted to give you all a big thank you for your splendid courses. I recently completed your Hypnotherapy Foundation Course in Milton Keynes. I found the course absolutely fascinating and very informative. I'm happy to say it surpassed all my expectations. I was quite nervous to start with, and the support and encouragement of the tutors helped me enjoy the learning experience and take with me a comprehensive set of skills I now feel confident to use with clients. Your professional approach and genuine interest in the development of your students have encouraged me to carry on and go on to the Clinical Hypnotherapy course.'

'This course was amazing! Really thorough, covering lots of ground in the uses of hypnotherapy and other types of therapy, as well as the practical aspects of setting up a therapy practice - and importantly we got to try the methods we learned out on each other each weekend we met, which meant that by the time we graduated we were comfortable working with clients. We were lucky enough to meet two of the trainers, both of whom were excellent. Robert was really supportive between sessions, answering all of our questions and helping us with clients we were working with. The great thing about the course being run in a variety of locations is that you get a network of Alumni you can exchange ideas with. I graduated in Sept 2017 and have already set up a practice seeing plenty of clients, which I think is an endorsement which speaks for itself.'

'I trained with TAG back in 2015/16 - it was the best investment I made in trading for a new career as a therapist - I trained in MK with David who supported and coached all the students through the course and both him and Rob have taught me a great deal. I highly recommend their courses for anyone looking to change their career to a new rewarding one. I have recently set up my own private practice and my tutor continues to offer advice and support.'

'With such a wide choice of courses available, it's a daunting prospect to identify where the best value exists. With well-structured content that is easy to follow and a wide range of techniques to provide a rounded approach to treating clients, TAG delivers all of the skills and knowledge required to enter into the field of therapy with confidence. Robert is always available to help and extremely approachable with an outstanding depth of know-how and practical experience of his subject.

For anyone who is serious about becoming immersed in this fascinating area, you will struggle to find a better or more comprehensive provider than TAG.'

'I highly recommend TAG. I am currently a Hypnotherapist and a Hypnobirthing Practitioner thanks to the wonderful training and the great knowledge I received at TAG. It not only gave a new career path, it also made me grow as a human being. Robert Russell is a superb teacher and a grear mentor!'

Anely C - TAG Academy Student


'Training in hypnotherapy with Tag was life changing. I now have a career that is so enjoyable and very rewarding on many levels. I found the training very supportive and was great for my personal development as well as professionally.  There are so many training schools to choose from, some offering a weekend workshop certification in hypnotherapy, I am really happy that I chose this training, you have to put the hours in, but you get back a lot in return, with help always available.

Therapy testimonials

'If you wish to simply drift with the wind of change, I suppose there is nothing wrong with that; but if you really want to fashion your life, I seriously believe mindset psychology is for you.

I came from a working class background. Many people accept their lot and go through this world doing little other than simply meeting the expectations life has set them. I wanted more than this. I was always trying to be the best, to get ahead of the other guy, and I knew I could.

I made it my goal to pursue my dream as a magician, consistently looking for openings and pushing beyond the boundaries of limitation. This eventually led to my television debut on Opportunity Knocks in 1970 bringing further TV work until I was given my own series on BBC1, The Paul Daniels Magic Show, which ran from 1979 – 1994. I still continue to perform sell-out shows around the world.

As a result, I have been a great believer in setting goals and focusing on pursuing them. Through adopting this approach I have managed to enjoy recognition as a global entertainer.

I get asked to write a lot of testimonials and it is rare that I say 'yes'.  In the case of Robert Russell I had no hesitation to say 'yes'.

On every occasion that I have had a need to call upon his services, he has always come through for me.'

'I went with Robert Russell who I can highly recommend and really local to Crouch End.'
