INDIA - An Introduction to Provocative Therapy and Metaphors of Movement with Andrew T. Austin and Nick Kemp.
Saturday 15th January 2011 - Trivandrum, Kerala, India

In this workshop, Andrew T. Austin, inspired by the work of Charles Faulkner, demonstrates how to overcome stuck states and create effective movement towards your personal goals.

Clients often arrive in therapy complaining of a lack of movement in their lives, both metaphorically and literally. Common expressions of how the person feels that reflects this lack of movement include:
· I feel stuck
· I don't feel like I am going anywhere
· I am stuck in a rut
· I feel like I am going around in circles
· I'm not making any progress at all
· I am not moving forward
· I feel like I am going backwards

There are many expressions that reflect a lack of movement in a person's life. In addition to this, many people lack direction:
· I don't know where I am going
· I don't know which way to turn next
· I feel lost
· I lack direction in life
· I feel disorientated
· I feel like I'm going the wrong way in life
· I don't know the right way forward

Instead of paying attention to these metaphors of movement and direction, all too often in therapy there is an excessive attention paid to the kinesthetic system and the emotions. As a result we often find a person who finds themselves unable to move forward until they have the right feeling in place.

It is often noticed that many martial arts and systems of physical movement are highly philosophical in nature, an example that is well known to many people is from Aikido, where an opponents movement is not blocked, but instead is redirected. In this Metaphors of Movement workshop, Austin demonstrates the relationship between the way a person moves their body and the way a person moves through their mind and through their life.

Nick Kemp will be introducting his Provocative Change Works model which draws both inspiration and strategies from the work of Frank Farrelly, Milton Erickson and Richard Bandler, among others to create a powerful set of tools for accelerated change. Provocative Change Works™ can therefore be "described" in terms of Provocative Therapy, NLP and Hypnosis, but is different to these specific individual disciplines.

Nick Kemp have found this combination of tools to produce the fastest, most successful and lasting results when working with clients. He used the Provocative Change Works™ approach in 2006 when appearing on BBC Radio for a 6 month series of live one hour programmes where he cured phobics live on the air using these tools.

Nick also uses this approach in his private practice and the approach is demonstrated extensively on the "Provocative Change Works™ for Phobias" DVD set, which shows him working with long standing phobics producing some really excellent results.

Frank Farrelly provides narration and commentary on these DVDs commented "You'll find his work on phobias using PT mixed with NLP and hypnosis quite a blend and Enlightening!!"

Therapeutic Change - One Day Tutorial
The proposal here is that we run a small seminar with a group of professionals (psychologists, psychiatrist, counsellors, etc) or students of those fields.

We both work with clients if possible, or with the group, and explain what we do and then rationalise for what we are doing for discussion with the group.

This session will be filmed for training purposes.

What would be great is that we do this at the University to the psychology department. Interested parties please email me directly.

Client Sessions – One Day

We’d like to get a group of clients (10-12) and a suitable well lit and quiet room to film one to one sessions, without audience (maybe one or two interested and suitable people to sit in and observe). Sessions will be between 20-60 minutes in length.

We’ve done this before and I generally use the university drama rooms which are painted all black and have black curtains and studio lighting.

Other Possible Additions
Giving lecture or session at the University
Lectures or sessions at a hospital
Prison visit, mental hospital visit
Any local business wishing to book us for a presentation/staff training (half day/one day)
