Talk Description: This is one of the easiest way to understand Hypnosis: Generally the conscious mind thinks in WORDS while the unconscious mind thinks in MOVIES. Many people who feel distressed in life, feel they are living in a dreary black and white movie. That's because the stressed mind dispenses with colour and vibrancy. Movie Therapy, is a new modality developed by Albert Nerenberg, who is also an award-winning filmmaker. Movie Therapy uses the principle that when we improve our internal movie, our lives improve. This modality is highly effective, because it allows people who are normally nervous or confused about hypnosis to immediately grasp it. It also sets out systems by which people can internally transform their internal movie with concrete results. The workshop outlines this new approach and outlines an exciting way to apply Movie Therapy while respecting traditional hypnotic protocols.

Talk Description: Would you like to master one of the most versatile models within the hypnosis and NLP field and begin feeling confident, using it to help you transform your client’s lives immediately? ‘Time Line Therapy’, a.k.a. ‘Time Dynamics’, ‘Time Techniques’, has multiple names but one main goal - healing transformation by utilizing the way you sort for time and leveraging it for the changes you wish to experience. It addresses Beliefs, Values, Decisions, Identity, Traits, States, Behaviors, and much more. The method incorporates how you learned to engage your personal meaning-making functions within your concept of ‘Time’, as it relates to your specific issue or area of special focus. This method originated with Richard Bandler and was further developed into a tangible model by Wyatt Woodsmall and Tad James. Of all the various methods I’ve been exposed to in the past 15 years, Time Line Therapy has been one of the most versatile and applicable methodologies I use with clients across many contexts and with a huge variety of presenting issues but, there’s a catch. If certain keys are missed in the set up or the principles aren’t applied with precision and wisdom, the results will be far less shiny. That is why I am offering this masterclass. My goal is to introduce a powerful technology for change work for the inexperienced and for those who already have the basics I want to help you take it to the next level! We will look at the steps but also the underlying principles that make Time Line Therapy work.

He turned me on to NLP and I vowed that I was going to learn it and become a counselor, and travel the world teaching others a) they can too help others and b) teach others that there is hope for happiness even after surviving horrific abuse and be truly happy and successful in life.

Talk Description: This is a class teaching others the basics of NLP to beginners. I found many beginners seem lost in trainings where the trainer put together many basic NLP techniques to produce a strategy that works. However, beginners seem lost in more advanced classes simply because they have no idea about timeline therapy, pattern interrupts, and more and how they can work together and the importance of the imagination. This class begins with the history of NLP and goes through as many strategies and several practices with each other in the class.

Jill Lien

Title: Transformational work with teens

Bio: Trained in the UK, I have been working in mental health for 30 years and as a hypnotist for 15+ years. Training is an ongoing thing though! It never ends and I continue learning from my colleagues in the hypnosis world. Over the years, whilst I am a generalist, I have found my favourite area is teens, in which I work with both the young people and their parents to improve and develop their relationships. I have worked with suicidal teens (and adults) for 20+ years and have not lost one client yet though I know that is possibly an unsustainable statistic.

Talk Description: It has never been harder to be a teenager than it is right now! Social media presents an image of how teens ‘should’ look, what they ‘should’ be doing and what they ‘should’ possess. It’s harder and harder for parents to relate and so at a time when teens need support and guidance the most, relationships often break down leaving the teen without direction or a moral compass. Sex, drugs, alcohol, confusion over sexual identity and suicide ideation are growing within the teenage years. I work to help teens develop a strong sense of who they (really) are and where they are going. As well as what the route to what they DON’T want looks like so they can navigate these stormy waters of temptation and looking ‘cool’ safely. I also work with (distressed) parents who are fearful and feel they’ve lost touch with their young adults to build effective bridges between them and resolve the communication breakdown. I’d like to share my methodology and experience and provide a protocol I have found works for me with tweaks for individual situations. This includes hypnosis, conversational and more structured, NLP and coaching for the teens. And where appropriate for the parent(s) though focus (for me) is on the young person.

She has been writing since elementary school and earned a masters in creative writing from UC Davis, where she studied writing and acting. She lives in Philadelphia with the best restaurants in the world and no pets.

Talk Description: You're on Zoom about to teach a group, but half of your participants have their videos off and the other half look dazed and distracted, like they've been in meetings the whole day. They probably have. Unlike in a real-life meetup where you can feel the energy of a group, meeting remotely means that participants have more opportunity to be checked out. What if your group could feel like they were meeting in real-life? Even better, what if your virtual group could interact in an enhanced imaginary space, weaving together their voices, breath, and physicality? Rather than each person experiencing a separate trance while staying silent, in this interactive workshop, we explore ways to create participatory trances that help individuals in virtual meetings feel like they are in the same room. Participatory trance creates immediate community, amplifies feelings of belonging, accelerates building group culture, and deepens the impact of the teachings, exercises, and other trances you do together. This is helpful for one-shot meetings and workshops and works cumulatively for groups meeting more than once.

Lara Cox

Title: "What's Your Fucking Problem?"

Bio: At 23 I graduated with a degree in Theatre and was destined to inhabit that world professionally. I wrote plays and performed as a stand up comic for a number of years and wrote a little for radio. At 30 and following a total collapse in my confidence and belief in my abilities to enjoy a stable and healthy existence both emotionally and financially, I qualified as a secondary school teacher and spent the next twenty years imprisoned in a creative battle between myself and the pressures of challenging job which I never felt suited for. I wrote multiple books in that time and did enjoy a top agent for a short time. Following a mini breakdown in an Outstanding school, I went for hypnotherapy. The result was a gradual improvement in my mindset and a total change in my life. I qualified to practice as a hypnotherapist in 2017, and began practicing in 2019, just before COVID. I discovered that I have a real talent for it, possibly equal to that of my writing. In the last two years I've been collecting reviews, I've obtained 50 five star Google reviews, and one one star one, calling me a bull shitter and a con artist, but that one's not true. I stopped teaching in secondary school in December 2022 in order to focus on growing my hypnosis practice. Last year, although it had never been on my radar, I stumbled on stage hypnosis and consequently began on a path which excites me and brings me here to share my passion, which is fusing stand up comedy, story telling and hypnosis. I've begun a cabaret night where I'm performing stand up and stage hypnosis and booking other acts to do the same. The first night is due on Nov 24th.

Talk Description: You've heard of Rumplestiltskin right? Well he was the little guy who demanded that a room full of shit be spun into gold. Well the good news can be done. And truthfully if you're a hypnotist that's what you do. It's what I do anyway. A lot of comedians arrive (although not all) into comedy with a lot of pain. It's a common defense mechanism of survival to distance onceself through humour. Most therapists have to trawl through great personal suffering and soul searching before they are able to detach sufficiently or integrate, through time distortion, suggestion and a lot of other stuff before being in a position to be an effective change worker. In this talk, I will be combining Stand- Up comedy, using an anecdotal and relevant style to our community. I'll be using music and laughter before demonstrating suggestion whilst talking and highlighting the commonality between comedy, suggestion and metaphor for change. "What's Your Fucking problem"? the somewhat uncouth and hopefully attention grabbing title, highlights with humour our own frailty as therapists, underscoring that's it's okay for us to be imperfect, have problems and fail. In fact once we embrace this aspect of ourselves I believe we become the most powerful agents of change of all. And if people don't realise I'm joking? Well I guess that's their fucking problem! They might swerve the presentation.

Paulina Trevena

Title: Tap and Zap & StressLess!

Bio: Dr Paulina Trevena is a researcher and hypnotherapist. After years working in academia and social science research, Paulina discovered the world of hypnosis and was hooked! During her hypnotherapy training, she discovered that her aphantasia (= inability to visualise) was a barrier to experiencing hypnosis - then she realised others were experiencing the same problem! This led her to start a research project into aphantasia and hypnosis. Paulina's goal is to raise awareness of aphantasia in the hypnosis world and develop best practice in working with non-visualisers.

Talk Description: See yourself on that beach… Imagine floating out of your body… Walk up to that future you… Erm… nope! As hypnotherapists, we commonly use visualisation techniques in our work. However, there is a whole group of clients who cannot visualise – they have aphantasia. Aphantasia was originally defined as a lack of a mind’s eye - but we now know it commonly cuts across more than one sense, and often all senses. This means some of your clients don't have the ability to tap into visual imagery in hypnosis, and possibly also hearing, smell, taste or touch. As an aphantasic myself, I know it can pose a real barrier to accessing hypnosis and change work. That’s why I started a research project into the subject – to explore best ways of working with clients who cannot visualise. In this class you will learn what aphantasia is, how it may impact on your clients' experiences of hypnosis, how to recognise if your client is aphantasic, and how to best work with non-visualisers.

Talk Description: Curiosity is something we all know is essential for healthy living and for being in the best frame of mind for hypnotherapy. But do we really know what it is, how to stimulate it, how it turns on and why it turns off? Richard expands the concept of curiosity from just our interest in seeking and investigation, into its connections with play and the discovery of meaning and purpose. Through his knowledge and experience in neuroscience, Richard presents an description of how curiosity is generated in the brain and how curiosity creates the best balance of neurological and neurochemical activity in the brain. It is (partly) a magic panacea for affective disorders and the underpinning of dozens of hypnotherapy protocols.

Surinder Gill

Title:  NLP Collapse Anchors (Stonewalk Interactive)


Talk Description: Would you like higher conversion rates from your discovery calls?

If you could give a client an undeniable emotional shift that makes them feel empowered, would that increase the odds of your clients rebooking with you?
If you could teach a client a 5-minute technique they can do every day to stay focused and aligned with their conscious goal, would that be useful to you?
I have created a version of the NLP "Collapse Anchors" technique that is fun, interactive, and very simple to learn. For those of you that are familiar with "Collapse Anchors," I promise you won't even recognize this technique as being similar until you really sit down and give it some deep thought. If you have no idea what the original technique is, that's even better! Get ready to be blown away.
1) I explain the technique.
2) I perform the technique with a volunteer.
3) I answer any questions you may have.
4) Break into groups and use the script to give each other an incredibly empowering experience!
Come to this session prepared with one key area of life that you would like to improve. For example, growing your business, improving your health, letting go of a bad habit, etc...
You will get a personal breakthrough; you will help another person get a breakthrough and you will leave armed with a script and experience so you can duplicate these results with your clients. I have been doing this technique with every client for 5 years. It doesn't matter if they come to me for weight loss, smoking cessation, anxiety, or any other reason. This technique is a staple and I believe it will be for you as well. You just need to experience it!
