From my Clients

All my life I have been looking for a life coach that could really guide me through life challenges. I have met many; however, none was able to penetrate my subconscious mind so effectively. I went through all the abuse a child can go through, but always knew in my heart there is a way to get better and stop the suicidal thoughts and never give up. I had seen a psychologist for many years and never had a change in my behavior and never got better. The trauma always hunted me in one way or another.

The relaxation that I felt the first session with Evelyn was a feeling that I can hardly put into words. The feeling of serenity, security, safety, and most importantly all is well and that I AM IN CHARGE OF LIFE. Each session with Evelyn was as if one chapter had been read, resolved and closed. She is absolutely the best. Very active listener, absolute observer, and the healthiest and most effective life coach I have ever worked with. My life has changed inside out.

I am most grateful to the work of Evelyn Wang, who has been guiding me to better myself every day in every way. Once we commit to better ourselves, grow, and keep learning; and once we are ready to do the work, Hypnotherapy is the most effective way to start. *

EVELYN IS AMAZING. As a coach myself, I really value someone who can blend both empathy and strategy. Evelyn helped me get to the root of an emotional eating problem I had been struggling with for years, shift my high-achievement mindset to create more lifestyle balance, and get clear on what I actually value out of life. She is a wizard of transformation and knows exactly where to go and what to do to get you your breakthrough. NLP and hypnotherapy are the WAY TO GO if you’re looking for real transformation and Evelyn is a master at this craft! Highly highly recommend!!! Thank you Evelyn!! *

Evelyn is a great coach and hypnotherapist, she was very intuitive yet clear in her approach to help me find new perspectives, make changes and create breakthroughs for me. Evelyn’s humor and straight forwardness made it really easy for me to open up and feel comfortable. She’s a powerful hypnotist. Evelyn will help you relax and is always finding the right affirmations you need to hear in order to start changing. An additional plus is that I find her voice extremely soothing and reassuring. I highly recommend her! *

Jennifer Bernhardt

Teacher, Coach

At 41, I made the decision to try hypnotherapy to help me change my life. I came to Evelyn for help with my eating habits and, as a result, my life changed drastically. I’m now the healthiest I’ve EVER been. I’ve lost 100 pounds and am in the best shape of my life. I went from not wanting to touch—let alone eat—vegetables to enjoying spinach and kale salads. It’s funny how I still get the shocked looks from family and friends who knew of my past eating habits. I tell everyone that hypnotherapy helped me change my life. Evelyn was a true blessing, and she helped me through a serious mental road block. I have now gone on to inspire others to make healthier lifestyle changes as well. I thank Evelyn from the bottom of my heart for being part of my journey. *

Yvonne Parker

I LOST 30 LBS! – Evelyn is a wonderful hypnotherapist who truly cares about her clients. As an only ‘partial’ believer in complementary treatments, I felt reassured at our first visit when she presented her ideas in a very rational, reasonable way. After several more visits, I came to know her as incredibly thoughtful, insightful, and compassionate person. I also consider her very ethical and trustworthy. Overall, we had several sets of sessions that helped me understand my motivations and blocks to achieving my goal, and as a side effect really reduced my stress for days afterward … I definitely recommend Evelyn as a valuable help to anyone who is considering hypnotherapy whatever their goals may be. *

Tina Olmstead

Medical Research Scientist

I started sessions with Evelyn after I had an emotional breakdown causing me to be hospitalized. From my very first session with Evelyn, I realized that though I had talked about things with previous therapists, I was never given any tools to truly let go. After two sessions with Evelyn, I fully let go and had no more emotional pain from many things I had since I was a child. I now look forward to the future and what I choose it to be. *

Stephanie Eubanks, RN

Registered Nurse

I have had two sessions now with Evelyn, and I believe I have had success in those two sessions. She is VERY thorough and you feel completely comfortable and cared for by her. She is very candid and real. I highly recommend her hypnotherapy services for multitudes of issues. She’s good. *

From my Students

Jack and Evelyn’s hypnotherapy training course is exceptional! The course is well designed and the content was delivered in a way that was engaging and fun. The practical experience throughout made me feel confident in my skills upon completion of the course. In addition to learning hypnotherapy content, this course enabled me to accelerate my own personal growth and healing journey. Jack and Evelyn are excellent instructors (and amazing people in general) that genuinely care about you as a person. I am so grateful to have found them and look forward to the next course with them! I highly recommend this course on all accounts. *

Tara O'Neil, M.Ed.

Certified Hypnotherapist, Yoga Instructor

Thank you again for such an amazing hypnotherapy course! I’m using the skills almost daily with a wide variety of issues and getting excellent results. The work you do truly makes a difference in the world! *

Douglas Corrigan, EdD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

PHENOMENAL. I took both NLP and hypnotherapy trainings with Jack and Evelyn and am so grateful for such an incredible and intimate training experience. For aspiring coaches or coaches who are looking to become more masterful at their craft, I can’t recommend these guys enough. The content, atmosphere, hands-on practice, and energy were exactly what I needed! I’m ecstatic about the new tools I can bring my clients and I’m happy to say I experienced a breakthrough or two of my own just being in the training. Can’t wait to come back for Master Coach training with them! These guys are the real deal! *

Caty Pasternak

Writer, Speaker, Certified NLP Coach

The hypnotherapy certification training led by Jack and Evelyn was both educational and experiential, not to mention very fun! I’m a Licensed MFT working with brain injured patients. Adding hypnotherapy to my practice not only advanced my personal learning and growth, but enhanced the therapeutic quality and benefits experienced by my patients. Often, as a result of stroke or other type of brain injury, some patients experience weakness or paralysis on one side of their body. Through hypnosis, for example, one of my patients regained the ability to move a part of his body that had been paralyzed by stroke. This is just one example of the healing properties hypnotherapy can provide. In my practice, I now frequently integrate hypnosis to help patients with other problems such as stress management, anxiety and phobias, and weight loss. I can’t thank Jack and Evelyn enough for their amazing teaching and training! *

Maya Rouhi, LMFT

Best training I have been to! Great support and kindness! Was amazed how much preparation was put into the training. So grateful I got to have the opportunity to participate. I am looking forward to more trainings in the future. *

Alexandra Ochoa, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I completed NLP training with Jack and Evelyn in April. This was the BEST experience ever! I searched high and low for coaching training and I’m so grateful I chose Center for Advanced Life Skills. The environment is very intimate and these two have the skills and professionalism that made it super-easy to absorb the information. Their guided, hand-on training takes you on a personal journey that evokes the ability to easily access all you learn once you leave the training. Alone, I had some great, life-changing experiences during class. Jack and Evelyn, through their teachings, helped me tremendously! I’m forever grateful for these two! My personal transformation truly placed these learnings at the fingertips of my subconscious mind and will help me better serve my own clients. I advise all to study here. Their teaching method meets the need of every learning style! You will not be disappointed! You will leave empowered, renewed, fearless and ready to be of service! I’m definitely going back for hypnotherapy training! *

Cotia Lee

Certified NLP Coach

I had been doing hypnosis for years in my own practice, but I wanted the certification so I took the training with Jack and Evelyn, and I learned a lot! I learned new inductions, faster inductions, deepeners, new suggestion techniques, new behaviors to watch for, and so much more. You will be so glad that you took this training, and your clients will love it! *

Dr. Michelle Kuranishi, Psy.D.

Certified Hypnotherapist, Coach, Security Consultant

I completed the Hypnotherapy Certification Training. Excellent! Jack and Evelyn are great teachers. Material is presented clearly and thoroughly. Highly recommend. *

David Sutcliffe

Actor, Filmmaker, Core Energetics Practitioner

I wanted to thank you for the excellent training. The actual content exceeded my expectations. Not only did I learn some valuable techniques, but also a new way to conceptualize the people with whom I provide services. I found the material to integrate well with my background in clinical psychology and presented theory and practice in a manner that was thorough, succinct, and humanistic…the knowledge base I acquired from it was more than worth the cost of tuition, travel time and attendance. *

Eric Yelsa, PhD

Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Utah Hospital

I write today as someone who is incredibly pleased with the results and rewards I gained from working with Center for Advanced Life Skills. Jack and Evelyn do a phenomenal job, first and foremost, with screening their potential clients/students. They make sure that their trainings are energetically “in flow” for each person. This is something I found to be so important during my trainings. They are smaller, more intimate classes (6 – 7 people or so), and having a connection with not only your teachers, but the people you’re learning with, is incredibly helpful in retaining information and integrating everything you’re learning. I went on to actually begin my career as a Hypnotherapist/NLP Coach/Recovery Advocate after my education with Jack and Evelyn. I also experienced my own personal breakthrough during one of the trainings—which months later led to me landing a contract with a company I’d been desiring to work with for a year, as well as finding my future husband. (Needless to say, these modalities and tools WORK!) Jack and Evelyn continue to be huge mentors/role models of mine—they are a plethora of knowledge, insight, and wisdom. I am forever grateful for finding Center for Advanced Life Skills, as stumbling across this place quite literally sparked the change in my life that I needed. What I learned internally through being coached, PLUS what I learned as a student/aspiring leader, continue to serve me as I grow and evolve as a wife, mother, female entrepreneur, practitioner, daughter, sister, and woman of her community. Forever grateful to have found Jack and Evelyn. *

Katheryn Flanagan

Certified Hypnotherapist / Certified NLP Coach

Absolutely amazing. Jack and Evelyn are two hidden gems. I am forever grateful for their guidance and support. I took the Hypnotherapy, NLP Practitioner, and Master Practitioner trainings with them. Yes, they’re that good!!! If you’re looking for some real, world-class training, then Jack and Evelyn are your people. I’ve been to tons of seminars and the intimate setting + information provided + high-level trainer support just doesn’t compare to anything else. The information is very well structured and Jack has awesome graphics he showcases throughout the training. Every single class was not only immersive—with practical skills and knowledge that I took away for my business—but eye-opening for me as an individual. I walked out of there feeling more clear and empowered. Don’t think about it—just take the training!! Thank you Jack & Evelyn!!! *

Svetlana Shvartsburd

What a powerful journey it’s been! Jack van Landingham and Evelyn Wang are the most incredible teachers. I am so grateful! *

Ruby Fremon

Certified NLP Coach

I want to express my gratitude to both of you for your professionalism; and succinct, informative training. In my personal experience as a professional assisting others through the art of listening, intervening, educating and healing; I found that this training has been one that has impacted me the most—as well as a great tool to assist my patients in impacting their quality of life. I thought that the training was balanced in the sense of teamwork (both perspectives male/female) and in utilizing your personal experience and wealth of knowledge in hypnotherapy. Providing a brief history and implementing concepts—as well as hands-on training—was attuned to my style of learning. The information was not overwhelming, but digestible. I was able to follow easily and your availability to answer questions and clarify concepts was important for me. I would definitely come back if you offer a second level to this training. *

Martin Flores, M.A.

Certifed Brain Injury Specialist, Centre for Neuro Skills

I did the training with Jack and Evelyn, and couldn’t have been happier. My main focus was to learn more about how we each develop our mindsets, and how I can greater influence my own, and I learned that, and so much more. Best part was how intimate the group was, which allowed for lots of questions and learning. Jack and Evelyn are totally available to make sure you get everything you want out of the training, and are amazing therapists / coaches — both to work with, and to learn from. I’m grateful for this experience. *

Brandon Hakim

Certified NLP Coach

I loved my training from Jack and Evelyn. They both have so much knowledge and are true and authentic people. My training was private and intimate. I made friendships with beautiful people. I learned so much. I’m excited to take my NLP Master Practitioner training next year with Jack and Evelyn. I highly recommend Center for Advanced Life Skills!! Thanks guys! *

Lindsey Catherine

Certified NLP Coach

I completed the Hypnotherapist Certification Training in February 2016. Evelyn and Jack were amazing. They made the training fun, light-hearted, yet very rigorous. They created an effective learning environment. I would definitely take more trainings with them, and highly recommend their programs. *

Monique Evans, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I just completed hypnotherapy certification training with Jack and Evelyn and highly recommend it. I had previously tried to do some of this training online and that just didn’t work for me—this is something you need to learn and practice in person. Our training was not only VERY informative but also lots of fun! Jack and Evelyn keep on pace to make sure you get everything you need and they inject humor and compassion into the time too. They are both thoughtful, insightful and professional trainers with a lovely likability. I had previously taken the Quantum Touch training and have a feeling I’ll be back for NLP soon! *

Rachel Julie Adams

Business and Transformation Mentor

I couldn’t be where I’m at in my career with out Evelyn and Jack. They are so informative. They even answer my questions almost a year after schooling has finished. I’m now opening an office and writing weekly and monthly advice columns for both international and local papers. They helped hone my skills and confidence. Truly one of the best decisions I’ve made. If I lived closer I for sure would take more classes from them. Thank you both! *

Laura Rowell

Certifed Hypnotherapist

Evelyn and Jack are amazing teachers. They are willing to go the extra mile in everything they do and always perform in the most professional way. The Hypnotherapy Certification training is very specific and right to the point. The methodology they use is based on theory and then a lot of practice which is what I liked the most. The fact that they have small groups is a perfect way to have a personalized learning experience. It not only provided me with the skills I was looking for, but also helped me heal some old stuff. The materials used and the place are a perfect combination for the class. This training is not only an intense and experiential way to learn hypnotherapy, but also a way to heal and transform for good the trainees life. I definitely have new life skills I will cherish for life. Highly recommended! *

Mario Gerardino

Certified Hypnotherapist / Yoga and Mindfulness Instructor

The training was informational, enjoyable, easy to learn and understand. I liked that the class was small and personable. I really liked that you made the information practical and easy to apply. I enjoyed all the practice we did in class with my fellow hypnotherapists and the guidance you provided us throughout. I valued the experiences and tips that you shared with us because they will be of great help to me in my private practice. I was truly impressed by your level of knowledge and professionalism and I would be more than happy to refer my fellow colleagues and friends who are interested in learning hypnosis or NLP to the Center for Advanced Life Skills. *

Linda Mandozai, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In the past decade, I’ve completed numerous training courses and learned valuable skills and techniques, but I have to admit that NLP, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy® trainings are, most likely, the most important things I’ve ever done in my life. Before attending the training I was hesitant, as I didn’t know exactly what to expect. But now, after witnessing the results and differences in both my personal and professional life (especially after taking the NLP Master Practitioner certification training), I feel grateful and proud to say that I made the right decision by choosing the Center for Advanced Life Skills. I was lucky to study with Evelyn Wang and Jack van Landingham, who are both highly qualified, professional and the most generous trainers I’ve ever had. And their kindness, patience and wittiness made the learning experience lots of fun! *

I wish I could convey the value of these courses through this testimonial so that everyone can see how beneficial, inspiring, and life-changing they are. Jack and Evelyn guide you in becoming aware of the power you have to change yourself and your outlook on any circumstance. I saw immediate results in both my work and personal life through the application of my learnings. Thank you, Jack and Evelyn, you’ve made a lasting impact for my life. I will carry your guiding influences with me through every walk of life. *

Gary Colon

I have nothing but positive things to say about Evelyn, Jack, and the content and quality of their training. I just completed the Hypnotherapist Certification Training. The learning environment is fantastic, and I’m more than confident in the skills I’ve attained. As far as I’m concerned, the balance between theory and hands-on practice was perfect. I’d encourage anyone interested in learning hypnosis, or one of their other programs, to contact them. I’ll definitely be returning for further trainings. Thank you so much. *

Marc Cooper

This training has changed my life. I shall always be grateful to have spent the time and money for this wonderful experience with Jack and Evelyn. It’s had a huge impact on every part of my life, and I can’t recommend them, or their training highly enough. The atmosphere was relaxed, the information wasn’t too overwhelming and just felt easy and fun. I have felt like a happier human being since I did this, what more can I say? A big THANK YOU to both of you! *

Lorraine Wilkinson

Certified Hypnotherapist

What a life changing and re-energizing experience. From the first day of class, I learned to implement small changes to myself and my business. The changes that Jack and Evelyn made me aware of from their expertise has allowed me to connect not only to my clients; but to my wife, kids and friends. Just sitting back and being able to read and understand people and respond in their model of the world has allowed my business to expand and make more money. I am truly grateful for you. You guys are blessed with a great skill set, and I look forward to taking more courses in the upcoming months. Love you guys. *

Ayden Masudi

President, College Planning Solutions

Whether you’re a professional seeking to add more modalities to your practice, or you’re looking for a change in career, I highly recommend the exceptional trainings at Center for Advanced Life Skills for a solid foundation. I acquired more practical understanding here than I did at another school that I attended for an entire year—at a much higher cost! I also got more here than I did from a “big name” NLP training I went to. The trainers, Jack and Evelyn, not only believe in what they do, they obviously love what they do as well, which made for a fun and authentic learning experience. And by applying some of the unique things I learned, I more than doubled my income! I assure you, you will NOT be disappointed. *

Marie Valdez

Certified Hypnotherapist

The NLP Training is an invaluable skill set that positively changed me and the way I practice. I was skeptical about Time Line Therapy, however it’s a very natural technique that produces fast results. I’ve learned how to help others shed limiting beliefs and emotions. The NLP training includes many tools that I began using right away. Besides that, now I listen differently, and feel a stronger connection with my clients and other people. Jack and Evelyn are engaging and knowledgeable teachers that made learning NLP easy and fun. *

Maxine Jurgens

Certified NLP Master Coach

Exceeded expectations! I am forever changed by the clarity received from this experience. Jack and Evelyn helped me understand that the “lie” that we tell ourselves, soon develops a partnership with the truth. This unconscious relationship marries our experience and gives birth to the very darkness that we spend a life time avoiding. I’ve learned that depression, guilt, anger, fear and anxiety are like scratched lenses that limit or cloud my vision, purpose and perception… Jack and Evelyn were able to illustrate the importance of terrain; giving me the unconscious ability and resources needed to access my authentic self, resulting in a powerful, mindful, empathic and emotional connection… Explosive! I now have a reference for the unknown and a voice that guides my reason and belief in my military clients. *

Sammie Tibbs, United States Marine Corp, Retired

Certified NLP Master Coach

Great! Class was amazing. I learned so much about how to coach future clients. Jack and Evelyn are amazing teachers, super patient, and teach the concepts easily. *

Monish Subherwal

Certified NLP Master Practitioner

Thank you so much for everything. It has been a wonderful experience … the class was GREAT and the teachers even better! *

Janni Mortensen

Certified NLP Master Practitioner

Thank you for a great Master Practitioner training. It was fun and thorough. Jack and Evelyn were generous and knowledgeable—they made sure we really understood the material. The class size was just right—highly recommended for NLP Practitioners to take their skills to the next level! *

Dave Petzold

Certified Hypnotherapist / Certified NLP Master Coach

You and Evelyn are simply amazing! That 2-day workshop just brought everything together for me…not only for Quantum-Touch®…but in so many areas and on so many levels. To just say it was powerful doesn’t quite hit the mark either, but it was truly life-changing in that I feel a marked shift inside of me! I can’t thank you enough for holding the safe space that you did in your lovely office. You and Evelyn both have such a wonderful way of making people feel so welcome, relaxed, and completely safe! You went above and beyond to maximize our learning experience and it is so very much appreciated! *

Judy Hersch

Wow! The Quantum-Touch® training has brought me to a new understanding of energy healing. Jack and Evelyn’s personal and professional method of coaching and training has such powerful results. It has sparked a light within me to embrace my calling in serving others. You learn as much about yourself as you do about energy healing. I am looking forward to mastering all the tools available in these courses. *
