"It is my honor to recommend Dr. Carol Ann Watson. Dr. Watson is one of the most compassionate teachers and therapists I know. She has an incredible energy about her and I am blessed to have had the pleasure of training under her, working for her and sharing her friendship.Dr. Watson was my counseling teacher at school and my mentor and supervisor after graduating. I have consulted with her on many issues and cases, inside and outside of psychotherapy, that she has offered direction and successful solutions for. I know that her years of experience are always available. She eagerly and lovingly contributes her vast knowledge and is a valuable tool to those entering the field. When Dr. Watson opened America's Academy of Coaching, Counseling & Hypnotherapy it brought a tremendous asset to the field. She has put together a team of wonderful leaders and teachers. I am proud to be a part of what will prove to be one of the best training programs available. the thought , care and integrity that Dr. Watson offers lends success to anything she takes on. I continue to look forward to her many years of success and teaching.

"I have personally benefited from Dr. Carol Ann Watson's excellent performance of two different roles.First, I was a student of hers at the Denver School of Hypnotherapy, where she instructed our class in Basic and Advanced Counseling Skills.And now, I supervise students at America's Academy of Coaching, Counseling, and Hypnotherapy; the school Dr. Carol Ann has founded.Our evolving roles has given me an overview of Dr. Carol Ann's competence as an insightful instructor, and a visionary administrator.Dr. Carol Ann Watson is warm and caring. (while holding high expectations of her colleagues and students). She is remarkably well organized and disciplined (fundamental skills for facilitating the growth of others!), and she is a proven expert as a teacher, a professional and an administrator, in the multifaceted disciplines of Coaching, Counseling and Hypnotherapy."

Her excouragement reinforced teachers and school coaches, while her suggestions for opportunities that could be improved were spot on and led to even greater success in the project."

HI Carol,It has a been a week or two since I saw
student therapist number 1 at your office. He was great. I really think he is talented. He asked me to give some feedback and this is the email I have.So I thought he was confident and empathetic. He has a talent for creating a comfortable situation, understanding my issues I wanted to work on and then developing something that went beyond what I thought would happen. I was not sure what being hypnotized was and was not sure it would work for me in a classic sort of parlor trick way. I am very experienced in mindfulness meditation and I think my experience was similiar in ways. He was able to create something with me that became a physical sensation of sitting on a surf board. He took my issues of control and wanting to be able to let that need go and helped turn it into a physical sensation that I continue to be able to use. I can be standing or sitting and go back into a relaxed state by just feeling myself sitting on my surfboard and letting the wave roll under me. I can't control it but it is good. So I think he is a good person to do this. He clearly gets it and I am happy I came in and tried hypnosis. I will recommend it to my patients also.Jim Mosher MD, Denver, Colorado.
Dear Carol Ann, It sure was a pleasure to meet you! Thank you so much for the opportunity to experience a hypnotherapy session with one of your thoroughly trained students. This student has a soothing voice that skillfully leads you into a complete stae of peaceful inner quiet not commonly reached in these hectic times. With her professional, yet gentle demeanor, she is certain to make anyone quickly feel at ease and totally comfortable with the process of self discovery and healing. Albertina Giuffre
