John Melton was wonderful as usual. It was awesome to see him in action. I learned so much about why people smoke, how to help them break their cycles and explain to them reasons to truly reinforce their ability to quit smoking is completely achievable.

Fantastic base. Remarkable work from John Melton, CHt. Very grateful John shared his experience and techniques. The case study is perfect because of its imperfections that are revealing the challenges a therapist has to face in supporting their clients. Listening and utilization is very important to customize the therapy. Thank you!

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!

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!

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.
