Over the past 28 years, the UK institute has seen thousands of people from all walks of life benefit from the Hoffman Process. We also receive regular referrals from therapists, counsellors and other healthcare professionals. Below is just a selection of participants and industry experts’ comments on the Process.

Dr Gabor Maté

Author and addiction specialist

The Hoffman Process is a highly sophisticated yet essentially simple means of transforming one’s relationship with the most important person in our lives: ourselves… For those willing to commit to themselves to the Hoffman Process, the results are abundant.

Elaine Kingett

 Writer for Woman & Home

I learned on the Process that I can change, that I haven’t been programmed for life.

Jude Medhurst

Yoga Instructor

How can you put a price on something that can change your life so dramatically? The richness comes from what is inside your heart, not your bank balance!

Sharon Knight

Proprietor of Marbella Rehab

After being in AA for 10 years and working The Twelve Steps, the Hoffman Process really was the icing on the cake for me.

Improved relationship with my parents – My father, having not seen for 5yrs, he’s now coming to my therapy. At work – asking for what I want and getting it. I am so grateful for the Hoffman Process – Still today.

Oliver James

Clinical Psychologist & Authort

This unique course has a hugely impressive record for helping individuals achieve lasting emotional growth. Nothing else comes close

Elise J. Katch, M.A., M.S.W.

Clinical Social Worker

The Process profoundly changed my life. I became more competent, creative and highly functional. There was a tremendous burst of creative energy. My practice increased and my work took on new dimensions. The world is different after the Process – less threatening. The Process continues to work each day. The effects grow stronger, instead of weaker. The Hoffman Process is a flight of life that continues to grow.

Asher Quinn

Jungian Therapist, London

I wanted to pass on my thanks and congratulations to the Hoffman team. I sent a client of mine who has visibly benefited hugely from the Process.

Gerald Kogan, Ph.D.

International Gestalt & Body Therapist

The Process touched me in a way I’d never before experienced in any therapy: patiently, confrontingly, lovingly, guiding me to and through my own learned negativity. I continue to unfold and ripen. I am discovering the endlessness of loving.

“If you’ve tried everything then this Process is the one to try. I wouldn’t be alive today if it wasn’t for the Hoffman Process.”

Stefan Chmelik

New Medicine Group, Harley Street, London

I found the Hoffman Process to be a rare thing – a combination of compasssion, intelligence and great skill. The teachers manage to hold a group of people so that they feel both secure and well contained during a very complex and challenging time. The benefits for me were immediate and continue to develop with time. It is one of the most enjoyable weeks I have spent in my life!

Amy Jenkins


After Hoffman I completely understood what it was like to feel comfortable in my own skin. It’s an extremely dynamic, energetic, highly charged and dramatic eight days.

Oliver James

Clinical Psychologist & Author

The Hoffman Process is the most systematic method I know for properly exploring the role of childhood as well as offering a motorway back from the past.

Patrick Holford

Nutritionist & Author

It thoroughly ‘undoes’ the negative patterns of behaviour that we inherit from childhood, resulting in profound transformation in relationships and a sense of who we are.

Post Hoffman My Life has been transformed. For Years I was trying to change other people; but I realise now that the only person you can change is yourself. Relationships have improved enormously. I love my parents dearly and I no longer want or need to be that rebellious idiot that I was prior to Hoffman! Rather than just existing why not live a proper life?

Anni Townend

Business Psychologist & Author

The benefits of the Hoffman Process for people and for business are huge. I recommend it wholeheartedly as a personal and professional journey to all HR Professionals looking for a course that will make a long lasting difference to their people and to their business success.

Shawn Katz

Psychologist & Psychotherapist

I found the Hoffman Process to be an incredibly powerful programme for personal change. It provides both the experience and tools necessary for emotional transformation and freedom from negative patterns. It also provides the potential for deeper connection to one’s spiritual self and compassionate heart.

Lee Sannella, M.D.


It is a thorough and exhaustive procedure which can save people a lot of time in growing… Those who have been disappointed in other searches can find what they are looking for here.

Derek Draper, M.A.

Clinical Psychology

The Hoffman Process does have the power to free you to re-evaluate your life. I would say it’s the equivalent to about a year’s good weekly psychotherapy. I can honestly say that at times I experienced a sense of wholeness that, even today, six years later, I remember as a benchmark for how my life can be at its best.

Hawkins Mitchell, Ph.D.

Psychologist & Writer

My life changes have been so many and so fast occurring that it is impossible to describe them here. Suffice it to say that after the Process I told myself that I’d left something important behind, that I’d changed. Only later did I realise that it was not so much that I’d left something behind, but that I’d started something, a new life. This is not the axiom of the glass half empty or half full. Rather it is about a road appearing and a road thus taken where before there was no road (nor landscape).

Joan Borysenko

Author & Co-founder: Harvard Mind-Body Clinic

The Process is the finest and most complete expression of what healing and spirituality are all about.

Christian Nellerman

Founder & CEO, XLN Telecom Ltd

I finally gained the tools to balance the excitement of business with the irreplaceable quality of life that comes from spending time with my family.

Tony Hertz

Managing Director – Hertz Radio

I was on anti-depressants before the Process but not since. I feel that I have less anger and there is a photo of parents on my desk!

Basia Newson-Smith

Director, East Sussex

I am much closer to my mother. I now recognise depression and/or anxiety when it strikes and feel better equipped to deal with it. I’m more open to love and feel more deserving of it. I just feel more the real me.

David Deitch. Ph.D.

National Institute of Mental Health Consultant

In a world of countless therapies, it is significant to find one that is without question the most focused, organised, systematic, time-limited and helpful.

Lois Evans

Psychotherapist, London

The Hoffman Process is the fast track to self-awareness, self-understanding and ultimately to self-mastery. I recommend it to approximately 80% of my clients with consistently positive results.

Janet Mules, M.D.


The Hoffman Process really made a dramatic difference. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so good. There have been bad moments but they have been moments and precious few at that. And those I have are easily handled… For me the Process has continued to expand and grow. There have been instances of increasing awareness, the “aha” phenomenon and growth which has led to so much more inner peace and feeling of freedom. It’s wonderful.

Claudio Naranjo, M.D.

Psychiatrist & Author

If one wanted to create a synthesis integrating psychodynamic, transpersonal, humanistic, and behaviouristic ingredients in individual psychotherapies, one could hardly originate a better product than the Hoffman Process, a method which takes only eight days… Hoffman is the best method I know for the realignment of relationships with parents and parent surrogates and, more generally, a powerful tool in the service of the development of love for self and others.

Jack Downing, M.D.


While my personal benefit has been considerable, I have also observed the important benefit to others… Indeed, of the many therapies and awareness methods I have studied during the past thirty years, the Hoffman Process stands out as the most comprehensive and the most effective… It’s a practical, straightforward and useful therapeutic joining of the emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical levels.
