Andrew T Austin - founder of IEMT, Neurolinguist, Master NLP and Hypnotherapy

"I have followed the work of Andrew Austin for a number of years now. He is utterly engaging as a speaker and trainer, and will often challenge perceptions you might have with his often controversial style. What I like about training with Andy is that he has real world experience from his private practice, not just uber-compliant course delegates, and will do whatever he needs to do in order to help people change. His time in Neurosurgery and pragmatic commitment to excellence have given Andrew a unique take on therapy and change. I also like the way he inoculates against some of the barmier therapies with a dose of common sense. I have trained with Andrew on several occasions, He is massively congruent in what he does, as he has worked with some really extreme cases therapeutically, His trainings represent extremely good value, and have personally revolutionised my private practise. Anyone who is interested in personal development, therapy or coaching should train with him."
