John Melton is probably my favorite instructor because he is so easy to learn from. He obviously genuinely cares about his clients and is super patient and respectful while maintaining his presence as an authority as well. The step-by-step take home package is so thorough and really puts the only possibility of failure on the client not doing their homework. Very well done!

John Melton is such a well seasoned hypnotherapist. It is wonderful watching him work with a real client! I learned many things from this class. The rapport building was amazing! Despite the client's stubbornness, he was able to guide her through the process very gently towards reaching her goals so effectively. Thank you so much!

Need to use the phrase "smoking cessation" or "stop smoking" instead of "quit". A lot of people recognize quit as a negative word.

I did enjoy the smoking cessation course. I learned a lot about smoking and smokers than I knew before as I have never been a smoker. It is more important to help people stop smoking than ever. John has a way of making the really important points stand out. I am enjoying working with people who want to quit.

Wonderful class, very informative. I love how John Melton really explains what and why he creates the program and how to use each part. He has a natural way of making the client feel comfortable and his voice is very hypnotic. If I was a smoker, I think I would have quit just by participating in this class. I am excited to use the techniques he presented in my own practice.

Excellent! John Melton is my favorite instructor, his personality and instruction style - the way he conveys the material to class I resonate with very well. I'm a serious guy, and he teaches a very direct and in depth way, with a pacing of the class that is perfect. Smoking cessation is a very personal thing for me, relating to my father (transitioned in 2011), being an ex-smoker myself. I will now be able to offer to my future clients, a perfected method along with my life's experiences to help them become permanent non-smokers for the rest of their lives. Thank you John Melton.

John Melton's Stop Smoking 101 and Smoking Clinical Case was well presented, logically sequenced, and resourceful in content. The system is readily translated to the advancement of smoking cessation within private practice. The workbook and clinical case presentations were invaluable in successfully conveying the course objectives. Thank you HMI!

This class outlines methods that contrast greatly from the 6 week Smoking Cessation program created by Dr. Kappas, however I feel that John Melton created and teaches in this class a great method for the smoker that is not smoking heavily (i.e. a pack or more per day). Therefore, I feel that having Dr. Kappas' and Melton's methods in my tool box will help me cater or help a wider range of smokers looking to quit.
