Book an Appointment with Andrew T. Austin – Skype Sessions Available
I’ve been doing therapy since 1994 and finally feel like I’m getting the hang of it. I am a therapist, trainer and author of the best selling NLP book, “The Rainbow Machine – Tales from a Neurolinguist’s Journal” which has attracted comparisons to Robert Anton Wilson, Richard Bandler and Milton Erickson.
I am regularly consulted by television production and media companies regarding alternative psychology, hypnosis and neurological syndromes and, consulted with, and appeared on, the BBC program, “Inside Out” (the episode where the cat is registered as a hypnotherapist). In addition to consulting on local radio and network television and I have written for The Fortean Times and Best magazine. As a speaker I regularly present at conferences and practice groups, which have included the NLP Conference in London (never again!), The James Braid Society, The International Bariatric Surgery Conference in Turkey, Advanced Mastery Training (AMT) in the USA and university psychology departments and faculties (Southampton, UK & Warsaw, Poland).
In addition to writing, “The Rainbow Machine – Tales from a Neurolinguistic’s Journal“, I also appear in several other books including, “Strange Fruit from a Bitter Tree” by Mark Andreas, “Transforming Negative Self Talk” by Steve Andreas and “Restoring Hope: Appreciative Strategies to Resolve Grief and Resentment” by Rob Voyle.
“In the midst of a society tormented by war, racism, and social turmoil, therapy goes on with business as usual. In fact, therapists often look suspiciously at social change and label as ‘disturbed’ those who press towards it.
Therapy today has become a commodity, a means of social control. We reject such an approach to people`s distress. We reject the pleasant careers with which the system rewards its adherents. The social system must change, and we will be workers toward such change.”
“Bitter Melons”. Alliance for People’s Health.
Based in the seaside village of Rustington, West Sussex, England, I am a therapist with a background clinical experience in neurosurgery and neurology in my former profession as a registered nurse. I work via Skype for one-to-one sessions.
With a lifelong interest in magick and mysticism, I am an ordained minister (!?) for The Church of Subgenius, 2nd degree initiate in the Ordo Templi Orientis, trainee member in the Builders of the Adytum, member of the Order of Oddfellows and The Masonic Philosophical Society and I am Chief Executive for the Order of the Historia Illius Itineris International. More recently I have been initiated into Le Droit Humain (Co-masonry) under the British Federation.
I have been teaching therapeutic methodologies since 1996 and more recently I have acquired a sizeable reputation with my developments of Integral Eye Movement Therapy and Metaphors of Movement which are taught internationally and are attracting considerable attention from health care professionals.
“Andrew Austin is clear, original, and outspoken about mental illness, medication, and psychiatry. His skills were honed by years of experience in the “trenches” of psychiatry, so he knows what he is talking about.” Steve Andreas, author of “Transforming Your Self” and other books about therapy and personal change.
“Andy Austin is an intelligent and entertaining trainer. He demonstrates high standards regarding working with clients and more importantly, he trains you to become aware of yourself as the clinician/coach in all types of situations. His material is very useful for individuals who want to increase their therapeutic skills. He cleverly leads students to find the answers within and then offers new ideas to challenge their learning even more. I have enjoyed my experiences learning from Andy and I recommend him as a trainer.” Rachel Hott, PhD, Co-director The NLP Center of NY
“Hugely congruent and massively practical. Andy’s training is clear, concise and very memorable with stories of his own provocative and effective therapy he will have you laughing and crying. IEMT is a rapid and wonderfully content free intervention. Anyone with a serious commitment to really increasing their clinical skills must attend one of Andy’s trainings.” Nigel Hetherington, NLP and Hypnotherapy Trainer
