What People Say


Zali is professional, dedicated, learned, erudite and engaging. There was never a dull or uninteresting moment. In my opinion the course content is all “Steak and no Sizzle”.

John Schild 


I learned not only about hypnosis but a lot about myself and how to improve my outlook of life as well as helping others better their lives.

Michael DeSharnais


I will refer anyone! It was well worth for me the year that I waited and saved up the money to take the course. Thanks a lot. Consider me a friend.

Ann Spreeman



Dear Mr. Segal,


        About 2 years ago I was about to enter business school. I thought that if I got an MBA, I'd make more money and be happy. Truthfully, the idea of a future in the corporate world seemed so hollow but I could see no other way to advance myself in my life.


I'd already submitted my application and was preparing to take my entrance exams when I came across your Intro to Hypnotherapy class at Hunter College Continuing Ed. The instant I read the description of the class, I knew right away that I'd found something better than business school.


Though at the time I did not have the money for your complete certification, I did go to the introductory class. I was so impressed by your teaching style, warm manner, and your excitement about hypnosis, that I went home and withdrew my business school application. I was so happy! I finally found the direction I wanted to take in my life and couldn't wait to get started.


Now, two years later, I haven't looked back once! I'm now certified, and have a growing hypnotherapy business in Putnam County, NY and soon will be able to leave my computer job and just help people forever. This career is so rewarding and so exciting, and though I know it's out of the blue and you almost certainly won't remember me, I'm compelled to write to thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Your excellent teaching style and approachable manner and obvious enthusiasm for your craft are directly responsible for my current happiness! Thank God I'm not in business school!


With warm regards and ongoing wishes for your continued success,


Priscilla Keresey

I am impressed with his never-ending professional and personal quest for excellence.”

Doug O’Brien Instructor American Board of Hypnosis



Dear Zali,

         I wanted to thank you for the amazing Hypnosis course I completed with you in December 2001.

Throughout the course your friendship, mentoring, wisdom, knowledge and general support made it a great and effective learning experience. Your information was well organized, clear and concise with a well-developed appreciation for my individual needs. Your overall dedication and consistency warrants me to say to anyone who has the chance to work with you to simply “do it.”

          I make my living marketing and positioning displaced clients and thought it would be a breeze to reposition and market my career and myself. However, I found out that when it came to forwarding my career and enhancing my earning power — it pays to turn to a specialist.

It was a joy to work with Zali and discover that the talent I have and thought was worthless was really very special and contributed to my success, not only professionally, but in my personal life as well.

That was a year ago, and I thank Zali for making these years the best years of my career.
