The Truth Behind the Cancer Epidemic and How to Combat it with The Cancer Diet & Hypnosis
with Valerie Austin

There are more than 200 types of cancer, each with different causes, symptoms and treatments.

The principle theme for this year’s conference is treating Cancer – a grave illness that is so much on the rise that it seems like an epidemic. The subject is close to my heart, having treated clients, including personal friends with the illness, and given the current epidemic it is likely to have touched your life either personally or through friends and/or family. The good news is that we, as hypnotherapists, are in a position to help.

Around 325,000 people were diagnosed with cancer in 2010 in the UK alone, that’s around 890 people every day and one person every 2 minutes and the figures are rising considerably every year. In fact, it was reported at a 3-day Cancer Conference I attended this year in Florida, that there were over 1.5 million deaths in 2012. And that the proportion of avoidable cancer deaths caused by diet and not eating ‘real’ food is very close to that of those related to tobacco. Despite extensive research, very little is generally known by the patients about the different kinds of treatment available. Even doctor’s opinions differ considerably. Invariably patients are offered debilitating chemotherapy or radiotherapy without being offered any complimentary regimens.

Working with Patients using Fact & Evidence-based treatments

One of the reasons I am focusing on cancer is because of first hand experience with my close friend, documentary-maker and attorney Inger Garcia. In helping her cancer with hypnosis, I have been on the front line seeing the type of problems she was facing whilst being treated.

This important and potentially life-saving workshop will be focusing on working with cancer patients and cancer survivors, bringing the best possible up-to-date information about traditional, alternative and combination treatments. You will be amazed, as I was, regarding the range of possibilities available for cancer sufferers, some of which are not commonly shared in the medical community. I will be discussing what the experts think and what they have discovered and the various success rates.

Expert Interviews & Survival Rates

Looking for answers I put on my journalist hat and attended (and filmed) a fact and evidence-based Alternative Cancer Conference in Florida to find out from the experts how to combine medicines resulting in less dangerous and less aggressive chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. The idea was to have the information to hand about the range of alternative options available for patients. It didn’t stop there. My interest peaked and I started to interview leading medical and complimentary experts to find out what a cancer sufferer, or survivor should be aware of. I will be discussing what the experts think and what they have discovered and the various success rates.

I’ll also be sharing some of my findings on how to combine these treatments with specialised hypnotherapy techniques. My friend Inger is living proof that with the right combination of hypnotherapy techniques you can considerably increase the recovery survival rate. Since doctors are now being urged to recommend alternative and complimentary treatments with the cuts in the NHS this could not only save lives but keep your practice healthy.

This area of expertise promises to be a vital part of our future.  Knowing what can be done for either our clients or even our relations and friends can make a big difference to each one of our lives.

David-Samson“Whatever your reason for considering hypnotherapy, I recommend the Valerie Austin course most highly. Over many years, Valerie has developed techniques that I can only describe as ‘back to basics’. Her methods are without frills or ‘psychobabble’, but incredibly effective in treating a wide variety of client issues.” David Samson, Harley Street Hypnotherapist

“”I feel so blessed that Valerie decided to work with me and allowed me to learn and apply her technique. It is truly brilliant. I started seeing people and using the Austin Technique and I was astounded at the results that I was getting. Thank you Valerie for allowing me to be part of a growing team of hypnotherapists who are really making a difference in people’s lives!” Shayn Cutino, HHP, CCht, Anja Health Center

karen-jones“There are many hypnotherapists in the world but not many rival Valerie Austin who takes hypnotherapy beyond most peoples knowledge. Her regression techniques delve deep into her clients heads and wrestle with the subconcious to provide transformation, intervention and powerful changes with no effort on the part of the client. Everyone is looking for a magic silver bullet to cure their issues whether giving up smoking, losing weight, being a better public speaker or more productive in business. Valerie is the only person I have found who has one. She runs course for trainers or those who want to become hypnotherapists to help bring her very rarefied knowledge into their worlds to ultimatley make us all live in a better world.”  Karen Jones, Publisher, CityWealth Magazine

“I smoked 20 a day for four years. Val hypnotised me into stopping with just one session. She’s incredible!” New York Post

“There is no question. Val’s technique really does work; try it” Sunday Magazine

Advanced Past Life Regression 
A New Approach From The USA On Using The Power Of Past Life Therapy To Heal
with David Quigley
Literally a ‘walk the talk’ presenter who overcame incurable crippling rheumatoid arthritis

David QuigleyPast Life Regression has enormous power to change your life and is becoming increasingly interesting to people every year.  Many people attribute their present behaviors or problems to a “past life” and want to investigate it further or resolve issues related to a previous existence.  Whilst many hypnotherapy courses deal with this subject as part of their training, therapists generally receive very little specialist training in this field.

Alchemy Institute

You will have the unprecedented opportunity to learn about Past Life Regression from one of the foremost experts in the field, David Quigley, in this unique workshop.  David is the creator of Alchemical Hypnotherapy and Director of the Alchemy Institute of Hypnosis in Santa Rosa, CA and author of two popular books “Alchemical Hypnotherapy – A Manual of Practical Technique” and “The Alchemy of Healing.”  He regularly speaks at hypnotherapy conferences so we are especially pleased to welcome him to this year’s event.

Learn How To Use Past Life Regression To Explore Your Past And Transform Your Future

Having known David for many years as a well respected hypnotherapist, I am delighted to welcome him to the UK for this year’s conference. We used to lecture at the same conferences in the 90’s in the USA, and he is one of the key presenters at the National Guild of Hypnotherapy – the world’s largest and most prestigious hypnotherapy conferences in America. His approach is totally different and based on serious healing, a must for the hypnotherapist. This is his first visit to the UK in 10 years he will be teaching a post conference course before he returns to California.

An Exciting New Approach to Healing Relationships

David specifically targets how to use Past Life as a specialist tool in therapy.  This special workshop will give you an insight into how to incorporate Past Life Regression as a speciality into your practice and offers some practical techniques for working with clients.

David will be sharing how you can use advanced techniques of past life work, including accessing creative abilities from past lives, clearing trauma by changing past life memories, and eliminating the karma accumulated by our karmic deeds in past lives.

Learn…

      • Find out how Past Life Regression fits in with traditional therapy
      • Learn how to clear past life trauma and replace traumatic memories with inner resources of strength and success
      • Discover how bringing forward past life creative abilities can enrich your present life

His training gave me a springboard of powerful and effective techniques that helped me begin trusting my own intuition and creativity on which I now rely. Carol Small, Santa Rosa, CA

The Rebirth of Mesmerism
The Original Bio-Energy Therapy
with James Pool

James-PoolWhat is Mesmerism? Is it just an old-fashioned hypnotic induction technique or something more? Mesmerism was prematurely abandoned for political reasons and still has a lot to offer. In many respects it has definite advantages over hypnosis.

At the last two conferences James Pool has shared some fascinating and unusual insights into the world of hypnosis including Automatic Writing, Hypnosis in Russia, Sprituality & Hypnosis, Oriental Hypnosis and of course the Brainwave Synchronizer.

This year James is focusing on the fascinating and sometimes long-forgotten art of Mesmerism. A therapy James Pool has lectured and worked with since his days as a young student at university. As a successful historian and biographer he gives you unique unpublished information proving the power of mesmerism. Many modern hypnotherapists have only heard the word but know relatively little about this important aspect of hypnotic techniques.

Now here’s a unique opportunity to find out more about it and learn the differences between Mesmerism and Hypnosis and the advantages of Mesmerism.

Some interesting facts about Mesmerism:

      • mesmerismPopularity:  Mesmerism enjoyed a success that hypnotism never has. Mesmerism was embraced by Royalty. A number of creative geniuses, Dickens, Dumas, Poe and others practiced mesmerism.  There were even several hospitals devoted exclusively to mesmerism
      • A Deeper Trance: In a modern study between hypnosis and mesmerism, 84% of the subjects with varying degrees of suggestibility felt mesmerism was a deeper trance than hypnosis.
      • The Experience: Physical and mental experiences during mesmerism were also found to be different than during hypnosis.  68% of the subjects described a “patch” loss of sensation or analgesia in some part of their bodies, 26% experienced a numbness throughout their bodies, 15% were cataleptic, 9% lost total contact or sense of body and 9% reported spontaneous healing.
      • Parasensory phenomena: The study concluded that there was also a higher rate of parasensory phenomena experienced during mesmerism. 23% of the subjects felt at least partly out of their bodies, 7% experienced age regression and 7% felt they had contact with their past lives.
      • The super conscious: Some of Mesmer’s French disciples found a method of directly contacting the higher self, a kind of mysterious realm in the human mind, a central point linking the conscious individual with his inner most self and unknown forces in the universe.  The aim of mesmerism was to rediscover that central point to enable the individual to recover all of his psychic energy and the unknown riches within him or her.
Learning Hypnosis is learning a technique.  To become a mesmerist is to transform your personality – to develop your will power to project bio-energy to entrance your subject.  This is why old posters of mesmerists featured a wide-eyed man staring at is subjects because it relies more on personal power and ‘charisma’.  People believed the mesmerist had some strange ‘power’ over them.

Mesmerism is the original bio-energy therapy.  Now there are many other bio-energy, therapies – Reiki, healing touch, etc., but mesmerism remains the only bio-energy TRANCE therapy.  It is from this trance aspect that it has its power.

There are over 150 years of research into Mesmerism with a history of experiments and case studies of mesmerism done by professors and some of the best minds of the day. Many of the medical cases of mesmerism are written up in more detail than modern studies of hypnotism.  Even the author Charles Dickens studied mesmerism and it improved his writing and his works are full of indirect references to it.

James Pool: Learn the Secrets from the Mesmerism expert

jack-gibson-james-pool

James Pool with Dr Jack Gibson

After his university graduate studies, while living in Geneva James Pool became a friend of the prominent Swiss psychiatrist and hypnotist Dr. Oscar Forel whose father, De August Forel was the director of the Burgholzli institute before Jung and wrote the classic book ‘Hypnotism’ in 1889.

Dr Oscar Forel was over 90 years old when James knew him and his father Dr August Forel had lived to his nineties, so they formed a living link with the mesmerists of the past century. As a young man August Forel had studied and observed the work of many mesmerists including Dupotet, who brought mesmerism to England. Oscar Forel told James many of his father’s unpublished secrets about Mesmerism.

james-automatic-writingAs best-selling author of the ground-breaking books ‘Who Financed Hitler’ and ‘Hitler and his Secret partners’, James is an expert on Hitler’s psychology and personal magnetism. No one could mesmerize large audiences like Hitler. Having first-hand contact with those who knew Hitler gives him a unique insight into how Hitler used mesmerism to gain a psychological hold over people.

James Pool, BA MA (University Cincinnati) has researched medical hypnosis for over 30 years, particularly medical hypnosis during its golden age, 1880 to 1900. He has worked in medical hypnosis since his days as a university graduate student, and is now course director of the UK’s first Master Practitioner Diploma in Medical Hypnosis.

“Charlie is a natural born teacher. He created a safe space to explore and the workshop itself was truly mind bending. It stretched me to view my sleeping hours with a whole new set of possibilities. Charlie’s workshops are truly a remarkable experience.” Koelle Simpson (Master Life Coach trained by Martha Beck)

“I feel so grateful that these long hidden secrets that allow such an incredible ‘awakening’ have been made available to me from such a talented teacher.” Tara Wood (founder of Wild Fitness)

“I have problems with insomnia which is due to being on the number 30 bus that was blown up at Tavistock Square in London on 7/7/05. I have had PTSD and consequently have to take strong medication every night to sleep. So sleeping had become a ‘big problem’. However on the Retreat once Charlie had explained it all to me and gently guided us all into the practice I noticed very signification changes in my sleep and was able to participate fully in all the exercises and practice with no problem. It was as if what I viewed as a ‘problem’ was actually an aid to this. I was amazed. This has changed my whole perspective to sleep and now do not view my situation as a ‘problem’. I have been practising since the retreat with significant benefits to my mind, my life and indeed my whole being. Thank you Charlie.” Angela.

“In almost 10 years of spiritual practice, this was by far the most profound 3 days of awakening. It was fun and wondrous! Not only do I look forward more to my sleep and dreams, but also to my waking life too.” Cristoforo G (musician)

Learn the Psychology Behind Phobias with a Focus on the Terror of Night Phobia.
Treating Nyctophobia and Phobias
with Monika Joanna Drozd, MSc

monika-drozdMany scientific theories have been proposed as to why we develop this anxiety disorder. Research points towards specific traumatic experiences in our earlier lives that trigger strong emotions, which in turn create problems for us in our later lives. However, as the problems develop and as the years go by, the reason for our fears and anxieties gradually become unsupported.

Facts about phobias:

      • According to the Office for National Statistics, around 1.9 per cent of British adults experience a specific phobia.
      • Women are twice as more likely to be affected by this problem than men.
      • One million people in the UK experience sheer panic as a result of exposure to a specific feared object or situation.
      • Treatment is often expensive using traditional NHS methods and hypnosis is often considered a ‘last resort’.
Monika Joanna Drozd trained in traditional psychology and neuroscience and is now focusing on using hypnosis in the treatment of phobias. She suffered from nyctophobia, a fear of the dark, for 20 years, which was cured with hypnotherapy when she attended the Advanced Structured Hypnotherapy course with Valerie Austin.

Learn from Both an Expert and Phobia Sufferer

“I suffered from nyctophobia for most of my life. This intensified in my late twenties and was accompanied by panic attacks at least 2 to 3 times a week. During the night I was grounded in my bed and even the smallest movement was dangerous, as this disturbed the silence that I thought was essential for my safety. Stepping out of bed, even when I had real physiological need such as needing to go to the bathroom, was impossible. On a few occasions I even ended up in the Accident and Emergency services as I thought that I had had a heart attack. It was very embarrassing, especially when my desire to be truly independent was so strong.”

Monika’s personal experience – nyctophobia and panic attacks – in addition to a strong scientific and professional curiosity, have made her an accomplished clinician in this specialist area of expertise in treating phobias.

phobiaIn this specialist workshop you will learn about:

      • Nyctophobia – what it is and how to treat it
      • The etiology of phobias
      • Different types of phobias – The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)
      • Panic attacks vs phobias
      • How specialising in phobias can increase your hypnotherapy practice
Most therapists receive general training in dealing with phobias but learning from a recognised specialist will give you a valuable insight into this area of expertise.

To learn an unusual phobia makes an excellent new way to interest your local/ major press and magazines. It is also an ideal topic of interest for radio, TV shows, lectures and networking. Getting a certificate for a certain problem also adds to your credibility.

Major Secrets to Marketing your Business Successfully

Successful Business to Business Selling for Complementary Therapists
with Roland Bullivant

Rolland-BullivantComplementary therapists can provide services delivering great value to companies and organisations. However, at the same time many therapists are uncomfortable with engaging in a sales process when trying to secure a contract for corporate work. The result can be lost opportunities or complete avoidance of that part of their market.

The reasons for discomfort around sales vary. It could be an aversion to being perceived as a pushy salesperson, having an anxiety about meeting senior business people in a sales context, uncertainty about the value of one’s services and most often a concern about not knowing the secrets of the successful salesperson.

handshakeWhatever the reason, the good news is that selling is not a black art. Selling is straightforward, but not easy! It is a skill that can be learned, that involves more listening than talking and needs a structured yet flexible process.

In fact in our personal lives we sell to each other every day without even knowing it. These skills we all possess can be turned into powerful techniques that allow selling to become just a conversation.

We are delighted to have Roland Bullivant at this year’s event. With over 30 years experience in business to business sales and marketing to large and small organisations in virtually every market sector, he is extremely well qualified to offer advice to therapists wanting to work in businesses.

Learn the Secrets of Selling to Corporate Customers

“On my course I stress the immense possibilities of using hypnotherapy in the corporate environment. In the 1990’s one of my main income streams was corporate work such as increasing productivity and speed reading. Unfortunately only a handful of those I train actually pursue this avenue of expertise. My original sales training enabled me to secure corporate contracts but therapists still lacked the ability to sell both themselves and their services. Learning from Roland could prove to be the most financially beneficial workshop you have attended.” Valerie Austin

‘Selling Is Just A Conversation’ (or SIJAC for short) is an easy-to-understand, successful sales methodology that enables sales professionals and more importantly non-sales people to sell successfully.

In this innovative workshop, Roland will teach you…

      • business groupThe process behind the SIJAC methodology
      • Some key ‘takeaway’ approaches to the sales process
      • How to conduct sales meetings in order to acquire corporate customers
      • Informal and effective sales approaches
If you like communicating, then SIJAC will give you the self assurance to sell when you need to. It will also give you the confidence to know where you are in a sales or buying process and just as importantly the motivation to conduct purposeful sales calls and meetings in a confident manner and radically increase the chances of securing the business.

Roland maintains current awareness about selling and is especially interested in the impact that the internet, social media and increased ‘busyness’ of the corporate buyer and executive has on the sales process and will be including commentary on how SIJAC is effective in today’s rapidly changing business environment during the workshop.

Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to learn from a sales professional who ‘walks the talk’ and which could open the doors to a successful career as a Corporate Therapist
