Thank you so much for a powerful week (again) of learning and growing.
Since our final closing session today, I have been able to hear words that I have needed to let land within my heart and body/gut for a very long time.
I realize how much "goodness" and freedom I have blocked by only letting my head hear vs. my whole being.
Your work is life changing and I am truly grateful for your 3 brains Chris.
The time and dedication you have taken to learn the knowledge you have gained and share with us so clearly, your kind and generous heart which holds us in our wholeness and healing, and your fierce reminders that we deserve to put ourselves first and reframe the beliefs we have held about using our GUT brain for our own good is LIFE CHANGING FOR ME! and I imagine for everyone who is blessed to work with you.
With all 3 of my brains I thank all 3 of yours

"Thank you, Chris for an amazing course.
You are a fascinating, knowledgeable and brilliant facilitator!
Most of all, please accept my heartfelt gratitude for the most profound session you conducted with me.
You have an unique ability to get through to the core of the issue with a laser like focus but you do it so gracefully and with so much kindness that it makes space for complete trust in the process.
Our conversation has had an enormous and very positive impact on me and I cannot thank you enough for the insights you have given me.
I am grateful for the experience, it was life changing."
Gerda B. Manager and Senior Health Counselor
It’s rare to meet someone such as Christopher, so clearly doing that which he was put on this amazing earth to do – namely to empower and transform the lives of others.
And when you do have the good fortune enter Chris’s world, some incredible things begin to happen to you, and to all those around you. Do you recall that bumper sticker, popular a few years ago Magic Happens? Well Christopher’s gift to is to convince clients and students alike, that there really IS magic.
That not only does it happen, but it surrounds us constantly. It never, never runs out and it is simply ours for the taking. All we need to do is reach out with a clear sense of purpose, with belief, with courage, and direct it to those areas of our lives that could use a little fairy dust. So thank you Chris for a truly amazing few months.

“ I came to Christoffel with a baggage of 60 years of misery, had anxiety, depression and a lot more.
After one session for the first time in more than a decade I didn’t want to die and thought how life would like in 10 years, after the other session I learned the skills to live my own life.
And now after 4 sessions I have MY life back, I’m happy and embracing life as I never did before.”
"Morning Christoffel! I wanted to share with you that after Tuesday when I met with you I did fairly well. I had one light beer when i got to my parents house to pick up my girls and no more for that evening. I did take two Tramadol though as I was a bit on edge after meeting with you. Yesterday, Wednesday, I drank nothing at all! but I did have two codiene in the morning as I had a bad neck ache and two cold and flu tablets (stimulant) as I was very tired and needed to get some work done.
I can now see that first step and I look so forward to continuing my therapy with you to becoming a healthy person for myself and my girls. So great after being not able to control myself and having everyday 6 drink now already to almost nothing
have a good day!"
” Dear Christopher,
I fell in love with my husband (again) after 10 years of marriage…
We have been a couple for already 10 years. We have a son of 8.
My husband used to work as a volunteer fire fighter. I do not know exactly how his job looked like and what he saw and experienced. I know how the impact of that on our family was.
I remember a man who was mind absent at home, belligerent, not possible to talk with, not participating in family life at all. He did not sleep and instead he was walking around the house during the night, he woke up sweaty after having nightmares. I was mother, father, driver, cook, shopping company, all at the same time. Just sometimes, when it was too much even for me, I am very strong; I just took my car and drove ahead without any purpose. Just to do something for myself, just to forget and do not think.
4 years ago, I persuaded him to visit the GP because maybe the reason of the problem is omnipresent depression. GP used 10 questions test to diagnose the depression and… he gave us antidepressants. I threw them away immediately and our life continued…
Till the day when I heard about a hypnotherapist working in the neighbourhood. I was thinking to go to him with our son who was from some time already afraid of the rain and clouds. To my surprise… my husband said: “Maybe I could go and try…?” I called immediately and I booked the visit for him.
He went there twice and even if I know how strange it can sound – he came back home changed, quiet, more relaxed. I observe my husband and I see again the person I fell in love years ago: we talk, we live, we spend our time together, and we go shopping together. All these small activities so usual and underestimated by other couples, we finally enjoy again. I know that you/Christopher has just saved our marriage and I will be always grateful for that. Now, when I hear that somebody has some marital issues, I advise: “Just go and see Christopher the hypnotherapist”.
I finally sent my son to you too Christopher. After some talk, my son, so always scared of the rain, just takes now his bike and enjoys that, even if there are some showers falling down.
Thank you so much.
“I want to say the most massive thank you because after all this time of feeling incredibly guilty over not giving my son a sibling, one conversation with you and I am now seeing things differently. I have no idea how you did it because I’ve had so many people try to relieve my guilt and have pretty much been told what you said before however it must be the way you worded it, hearing it from you or your general power of persuasion that actually had results! I didn’t notice in the moment that you had changed my thought process but realised that evening when I was walking the dogs that I suddenly felt some of the weight removed from my shoulders and truly understood that it really is just my belief system.
It’s as though you switched on my light bulb. I am obviously still upset with the situation and I think I will always be angry at myself for the self-infliction of it all however my main guilt and cause of distress was over thinking I was robbing my family of such a huge thing. Although I’d still love another child I am a lot more ok with the thought of it not happening.
I am in a bit of disbelief that you were able to change my thinking so quickly. You really have an amazing talent there!!! So thank you so very very much as I had a much better week after seeing you.
On that note I also don’t know the reason for it but you were also the one person I’ve been able to discuss my issues with without crying which I hate doing (and was scared I would) so thank you for whatever it is you do to talk about things in a non-upsetting way.
I’ve never been a public crier but I’ve been really emotional since everything happened. Since you’ve worked your magic I haven’t cried once.”
"I’ve been lucky enough to have Christoffel recommended to me by one of his clients.
I’d been to see mental health professionals before, but word of mouth is worth so much more.
From our first meeting he made me feel at ease, relaxed and comfortable He was the first person to really listen to my problems, so it didn’t take long for me to feel I could trust him enough to open up and talk about my difficulties.
I’d felt embarrassed to talk about my worries before, unable to express my emotions and feelings, but Christoffel is so intuitive and knowledgeable that I was able to open up to him without any embarrassment and shame.
It didn’t take long for me to realize I was in the right place. Despite the pain and tears I sometimes experienced discussing my problems, I actually looked forward to seeing him. It was always illuminating and of great value.
I came away feeling full of confidence as he had given me another perspective on my issues. Why didn’t I see it that way myself? I was stuck in my frame of mind and couldn’t see the woods for the trees.
What makes Christoffel different is his down-to-earth and practical insight. I know my frame of mind is determined by my thoughts and he helped me to reconstruct them so that now, with this new perspective, I no longer dwell on the past. I can finally leave the past in the past and move forward.
Thank you Christoffel."
After a 2 days certification I was convinced to step into this amazing journey- the 8 months diploma- becoming a hypnotherapist and I'm glad I did it! I'm beyond grateful I got to be trained by both those masters Chris and Amanda! They have an inspiring and flexible approach in all they do! Theory time and practice one are well balanced so that I got to understand through experience the techniques taught. Chris, also author of "The 3 brains Theory- how to finally understand..." explains in depth how one reacts according to one's dominant brain in various situations, this helps a lot understanding one another inside and out of the therapy. Moreover what I love about the training they offer is the familial atmosphere they spread and the way they still both look after me long after the training is over sharing all tools for me to be thriving in my activity! Many thanks to the both of you! Kindly
Last year I started clinical hypnotherapy with Chris and Amanda. It's been an amazing course, a great mix between theory and practice. Chris's years of experience as a therapist, the Head Heart Gut component, Amanda's structure and knowledge and much more makes them a great team. You'll find your inner best and will be well supported in the process. It's been the best choice I've made. Often I got there on Friday, very tired, and left Sunday feeling amazing. Loved every minute of the course. Thank you Chris and Amanda
The knowledge, the experience, the content and the results that Christoffel's courses gave me have been an empowering journey I am so glad I took that can only highly recommend them! Chris is gifted in helping to discover your true potential, his support is amazing and he loves to see people grow and be successful. With gratitude and love,
Absolutely amazing person, mentor, therapist!! So happy that I enrolled in his class. I learned so much and I was never bored considering I have a short attention span. He is funny and very engaging. Wohoo!
I have been looking to become a Therapist for a number of years and had never found the right course until now. The Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy is excellent both in the knowledge that Chris has and his enthusiasm that he brings to every learning experience. I am loving the journey it is taking me on both professionally and personally and can’t wait to fulfill my dream of becoming a Therapist. Thanks for your support on my journey Chris 🙏
Chris has devised one of the most engaging and life-changing Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and coaching courses out there. His unique and adaptive teaching style ensures every person on the course is touched and leaves knowing their stuff. His tireless pursuit of knowledge means that all aspects are covered: the neuroscience behind behaviour, differing therapeutic approaches as well as his own theory of the three brain head, heart, gut connection.
I have loved studying clinical hypnotherapy and coaching with Chris. He keeps up to date with the latest therapeutic approaches and the science behind them, with a strong focus on developing the mind body connection. He teaches with kindness, patience and an authority that only comes with decades of international experience.
The course is worth its weight in Gold! Chris is a very warm, sincere and compassionate trainer, who, not only imparts clear understanding with hands-on experience, but takes his students on a journey of refinement into professionally-confident therapists. Everyone is encouraged to develop their own artistry and excellence. Thank you so much.
Can't believe how much I have evolved in past few months. It's not just a course , it changed me completely. It changed my entire life. Not only I have found my soultribe , I have found me .
“When I walked into Christoffel’s office, I was in a very bad place. I was suffering from depression that was physically weighing me down. I had to take the week off from work because I couldn’t cope. I was looking for something, anything, to help me stop drinking because that was making everything worse. I was drinking two bottles of wine a day. Although there have been periods where I was doing slightly better, I’d pretty much been drinking that much every day for 10 years. I’m on antidepressants and had been seeing a psychologist for five years, but none of that was working. I was desperate for help and I started more unhappy and unhealthy relationships than I could count.
Christoffel asked me to tell him what my issues were. Now, because I had been talking to a psychologist, I was able to tell him the following points:
As a child, I had felt unloved by my mother. I had learned that it was important to be invisible, to make sure I focused on, and delivered, what other people needed, so as to be safe.
I had intrusive visions of a sexual assault by my brother and a friend of his when I was a child. I didn’t know if they were real or not, but they wouldn’t go away, and I kept pushing them down, ignoring them.
Twenty-two years ago I became pregnant (when I had believed, and grieved over, the fact that I couldn’t get pregnant) but I was not in a relationship and in a panic, I arranged an abortion. I was sobbing as I was taken into theater but nobody stopped to ask if I wanted to go ahead. I hated myself for that decision and continued to do so.
I felt I didn’t deserve happiness, that I was unworthy. I hated myself.
Unbelievably for me, Christoffel was able to help me bring the little girl who felt unloved up out of my Gut and into my Heart. I could see her and feel her energy moving. I promised her I would love her and take care of her. I forgave myself.
And I was able to bring myself up from my hidden places, the trauma of the images of sexual abuse, my feelings of being complicit in what had happened to that little girl, my anger and grief over it. I was able to accept that those things, and my decision to abort my child, were a part of what made me who I am, that all those feelings, my decisions, were understandable, and that I should truly forgive myself.
At the end of the session I was able to say, and for the first time ever, I believe, that I love myself and I forgive myself. The weight of depression miraculously lifted off of me. I came in, unable to smile, hunched in on myself, unable to cope with life, and I left grinning and happy.
I felt, literally, a million times better!
I can’t thank Christoffel enough. And I hope other people can have the opportunity to have their lives turned around like me because of him.”
Chris is a wonderful teacher that is passionate about what he teaches. His enthusiasm is infectious and he has a strong desire to help others become happier, healthier, more fulfilled people. His courses are practical, interesting and fun and he goes above and beyond for his students. He has a genuine desire to help others be their best selves. I recently completed his ‘remaster yourself’ course and previously his hypnotherapy/psychotherapy course. I enjoyed them both thoroughly and learned many tools to help myself and others. I would highly recommend!
Chris is one of the most accommodating trainers who will go an extra mile to help out his students. I received both NLP and the Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy training from Chris. Knowing that Chris brings a wealth of experience form both coaching and training background, he can provide guidance on whether about training or running a business.
Thank you for the opportunity and anyone who is looking for a unique way of learning, this is the place for you.

3 Brains coach training is invaluable if you are looking to help your clients connect with themselves and their inner wisdom to live in alignment with their truth. Grateful to Christoffel for sharing such powerful tools with us! He has a way of enhancing the learning environment as well as making it very enjoyable, leading to new personal and professional insights!
Alison Sinclair, PCC Self Leadership Coach, Live Your Truth Coaching, UK.
"I have taken a number of courses throughout my career and must say this was one of my favourites. I was in a class of very experienced peers, all whom had a MCC or PCC designation.
We found this was remarkably simple language that could take coaching conversations much deeper and broader than expected. It was really quite remarkable.
I have studied Mindfulness, EQI, Leadership theory and I am certified in multiple leadership and personality tools. I was pleasantly surprised at how complex yet simple the Three Brains theory was.
I would highly recommend it to anyone"
Jill MacLeod, PCC
“I was truly delighted with this programme, in particular the quality of the content, materials and research complemented by Christoffel’s abundance of knowledge and expertise which he shares with generosity and humility.
The 3-brains concept really lands with my clients, supporting them to unpack complex unspoken thoughts, feelings and behaviours to arrive at solutions with greater clarity and confidence. “

Thank you Christoffel
I can honestly say that this was one of the most enjoyable, interactive and genuine training programmes that I have experienced.
The combination of your style and the subject matter created a very safe space, for me at least, and I have taken a great deal from this training.
In fact, after the first day, I recommended that my three closest colleagues (covering UK, Israel and South America) read your book and have a look at your work.
All the very best, and I look forward to being in touch again soon.
Claire K. PCC Business Psychologist & Coaching Professional
I followed this program in April 2020 and it is a great one for self-awareness and self-development, besides, it provides a toolset to coach and help others to move forward.
The ICF CCEUs were a plus and guarantee of quality.
Christoffel provides his best knowledge and experience in the field of business, coaching and therapy, and the virtual experience of the online training worked out very good!"
