Praise for Hilton's teaching
During my final year of study as an occupational therapist I attended a multidisciplinary pain management conference facilitated by Hilton. Hilton opened the day with a story and managed both to ground theory in the personal, and to give the whole audience an experience in common at the start of the day. Hilton has an uncanny knack of delivering complicated information in an easy to access manner which is grounded in the acknowledgement that we all have our own story.
Maria Kirstens, Occupational therapist
I have been a student of Hilton’s both as a doctor and as a writer and as a doctor using writing. Hilton is a rare gem of a teacher in all these capacities. Whether he is teaching dry clinical practise or creative writing he has a precious and masterly ability to unlock the heart of the subject and share it with his students in a way which shines a new and fascinating light on it. Hilton has a genuine, funny, encouraging and deeply human approach which engages everyone lucky enough to be in one of his workshops. A true teacher in the very best sense of the word.
