"Christa is simply one of the most knowledgeable and insightful facilitators I have had the privilege of working with. Her workshops are a source of creative and spiritual inspiration, and I invariably leave with a deep sense of new learning."
Shane Scott, MA, PgDHyp, Dramatherapist and Hypnotherapist
"Christa is one of the most inspirational people I have met both in my professional and personal life. She was one of my teachers when I started along the path towards clinical hypnosis in 2005, and taught me until 2008. Not just an exceptional lecturer, her knowledge of the subject and depth of understanding in this field is second-to-none and she has the gift of being able to instinctively tune in to the individual very quickly.
PgDHyp Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP Master Practitioner, MBSCH, ANLP
"I had the privilege of attending both Certificate and Diploma courses in clinical hypnotherapy at Exeter under the tutorship of Christa some twelve years ago. It soon became clear to me that Christa excelled at the way that she taught; her profound knowledge and delightful personality made learning a very real pleasure. Subsequently, as I worked with her in a number of areas, I appreciated her support, willingness to help and give advice and her friendship. A very special and competent tutor, advocate, guide, mentor and a pillar of wisdom.
JOHN HEMPSTEAD, M.A.,FBSCH
Chairman The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis
"Christa Mackinnon is one of this rare people - a brilliant academic and a humanist. Most academics have the ability to analyse, quantify and be logical, however this is rarely coupled with the ability to touch people, empathise and understand them, a truly great gift. Christa has both in abundance - a brilliant teacher and psychologist.
Suzanne G Moody BSc (hons) MBPS MBSCH
"Christa is one of those rare and charismatic people who combine total professionalism with extraordinary compassion and empathy. Her intuitive skills as a healer, wealth of experience and generosity of spirit make it an pleasure for me to be able to recommend her wholeheartedly as a gifted practitioner, wise and inspirational teacher and the most wonderful of friends.

"Christa is an inspirational human being who will become significant in your life from the moment you meet her. My particular experience on a recent workshop was transformational and stays with me every day. The whole weekend changed the way I think about life, about everything - we are all connected.

"I have studied under Christa Mackinnon for three courses, during her time as South West Course Director for LCCH; she is a superb teacher, being able to deliver complex programs in a very comprehensive and comprehensible way. I would be very happy to progress my CPD on any course she runs!

"Christa is one of the most inspirational tutors I have been lucky enough to encounter. Professionally she is knowledgeable - and willingly shares her knowledge- experienced and approachable. Christa has great integrity and is a wonderful role model for our profession. She walked beside me all the way and I feel privileged to know her.
Jan Dilkes, Clinical Hypnotherapist
"Christa McKinnon’s tutoring style was invaluable whilst I was studying for a diploma in hypnotherapy with LCCH. I found Christa to be passionate and dedicated to her students making studying not only interesting but also enjoyable.
It was an honour and a pleasure to by taught by such an inspiring teacher.
Maureen Witek, BACP (accr) Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist
"Christa is a most inspirational lecturer. She is passionate and sincere in her love of imparting knowledge and skills to others. She has deep knowledge of her subject and tremendous rapport with her students. A life changing experience.
