With his PhD research, he is set to become one of the first people to write a systematic review of the efficacy of self-hypnosis to feature in a peer-reviewed academic journal. Likewise, he has been the first person to study the application of self-hypnosis to inhibit the Stroop effect, an area of great interest to the field of cognitive neuroscience. His ongoing research continues to examine the efficacy of self-hypnosis to advance cardio-respiratory endurance. Adam lectures for the Royal Society of Medicine and upon University Masters degree programmes on the subject of hypnosis. He was the keynote speaker at the inaugural UK Hypnosis convention and was the first hypnotherapist to be asked to be on the panel of experts for the TalkHealth online clinics in collaboration with NHS Choices here in the UK, alongside conventional doctors and renowned medical experts. He was a founder member of the PHN (Professional Hypnotherapy Network) and is Patron of the organisation today. Adam is author of several highly regarded books on hypnosis including "The Science of Self-Hypnosis: The Evidence-Based Way To Hypnotise Yourself" and "Hypnosis For Running." Adam's online training materials sell globally and he has appeared on primetime TV on both BBC1 and ITV in the UK displaying his work.

Hazel Gale

INFO

I discovered hypnotherapy while training for my first World Title in Full Contact Kickboxing. The stress of competition and weight-making caused me to burn out, and the years of chronic fatigue that followed were devastating. After trying every medical avenue I could find, cognitive hypnotherapy was the only thing that made a difference to my health. I trained up as a practitioner as soon as I was able, and I've not looked back since. In March, 2018, my first book - which is on the psychology of self-sabotage and how to take control - will be published with Hodder & Stoughton. Later in the year, it was also be released by the French publisher, Espirit D'ouverture.

Martin S Taylor

INFO

Martin S Taylor became interested in hypnosis when he was studying for a PhD at Imperial College, and soon became well known on the student circuit with his science-based lecture-demonstration. At first he accepted the traditional view that hypnosis is a special induced state of mind, but discussions with friends and his experience with his own hypnotic subjects led him to subscribe to the 'social-compliance' view, namely that hypnosis is best explained by normal, well-understood psychological principles.

He now makes a living as a lecturer and consultant on hypnosis, talking and demonstrating at schools, universities, and anywhere else they'll pay him. It was at one of Martin's lectures that Derren Brown was inspired to take up his career, and Martin has worked with Derren on a number of television shows. Recently he has been a hypnosis consultant for Paramount Pictures, helping them make promotional videos for horror films.

Kate Beaven-Marks

INFO

I have what some might consider to be a 'portfolio career' as I work in a range of settings. I am research supervisor for the UK's only MSc. Clinical Hypnotherapy, whilst also teaching hypnotherapy privately (HypnoTC) and for Morley College, where I also teach psychology to a range of health and nursing students. In addition, I spend time working as a clinical hypnotists on the wards of a busy London teaching hospital, together with hypnotherapy practices in London and Essex. I am Chair of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Professional Specific Board member at Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I have recently co-authored a hypnosis book for children (Sam the Sleepy Sheep) and am presently writing a book for hypnotherapists wishing to use hypnotherapy for hospital inpatients and outpatients and other medical settings. This makes good use of the extensive hypnotherapy training that I have undertaken, not just as part of my initial training but during my Doctoral studies where I researched the provision of hypnotherapy training in the UK from a teaching, learning and professionalism perspective. These studies enabled me to gain thousands of classroom and study hours in a diverse range of clinical and medical training environments. My contributions to research were recognised by the Federation of Holistic Therapists in 2015 with a Excellence award for Research.

Karen Puttick

INFO

I am a happily married mother of three grown up children. My passion is enabling people to apply their imaginations in a practical way to facilitate positive changes in every aspect of their life. I work with clients with either very specific health or emotional issues or general life imbalances, and have a specialist area working with children and young people, some with SENs. My Dad was a hypnotherapist, so I have been using self-hypnosis in various forms since my late teens, and have had a life-long interest in how we can use the mind to achieve extraordinary things. My interest in improving mental health was deepened by my work as the Employment Support Co-ordinator for Bucks Mind; running a community centre in one of the top ten most financially deprived areas in the UK, and managing an integrated healthcare centre. For over 25 years I have taught meditation and guided visualisations. Several years ago this led me to create Fairyland Parties and my alter-ego The Fairy Godmother. I offered children’s fairy themed parties using “Magical Moving Stories”, nature based stories, games and activities. I stopped offering the parties some years ago, but self-published “The Fairyland Party Manual” to enable parents to run their own. I am still a Variety Performer member of the actor’s union Equity (as The Fairy Godmother). The practical application of imagination now influences everything I do. I decided to formalise my use of hypnosis and studied with Adam Eason, qualifying as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2012 and I have been a perpetual student and practitioner of the subject ever since. For the last two years I assisted on Adam's diploma courses, deepening my understanding both of hypnotherapy, and the way people respond to different approaches. Adding Hypnotic Coaching, The Science of Happiness and Laughter Yoga into the mix has lead me down a path where I have worked as The Hypnotic Happiness Coach! My work is very much aimed at empowering people and increasing the joy in their lives by offering them the skills and tools to create their own positive outcome using the practical application of imagination. Increasingly this is via my "Imaginator Programmes" due for online release in January. For many years I have enjoyed offering workshops and have presented to both adults and children, covering a broad range of interests including hypnosis, use of imagination, holistic health, change management and skills for the workplace. I also created and hosted the Healing Tree Network for local holistic practitioners and people interested in complementary medicine, attracting audiences of up to 60 people and speakers from around the UK. (Currently dormant as I have been pursuing other interests.) I have professionally recorded several relaxation and hypnosis CDs, hosted a radio programme for charity and have taken part in performances in front of several hundred people. Writing is a great joy for me! I have self-produced 2 books via Amazon – “Freedom to Sleep” and “Mini Motivations” which I use in my practice and always receive great feed-back. My clinic is in Amersham in Buckinghamshire and I have retreats in Turkey in the pipeline. I run regular workshops and training including my regular Hypnotic Happy Hours.

Trevor Silvester

INFO

I’ve been a practising Hypnotherapist for over 20 years, and in 2000 launched the world’s first Cognitive Hypnotherapy training course, an approach I developed as a result of my clinical experience, the training that I’d taken in a number of disciplines and my fascination with the subjects of personal growth and therapy. I’ve trained over nine hundred Cognitive Hypnotherapists, many of whom do great work around the country and I’ve also personally worked with thousands of clients. 

I was a police officer for 18 years, and as a result, have a particular interest in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. I believe that sufferers can be helped in a relatively short period of time, and never has there been a greater need in modern times.

Lucy Hyde

INFO

I am an elite life coach and clinical hypnotherapist, combining the two disciplines to offer a unique approach to creating ‘impossible’ changes for people seeking to uncover their true potential.

My work is grounded in a single powerful message: You create your own reality. You are capable of having and being anything you wish. It's never a zero sum game, and you don't have to compromise. You can have it all, and what's more, it can be EASY. You already have everything it takes. If only you knew how limitless you are!

If you are willing to transcend 'good enough' to become incredible, we work together to break down self-limiting beliefs and step into a new way of living: with a deep sense of congruence, integrity, purpose, passion and play. We bring to the surface the strengths, power and presence you only had a whisper of awareness were available to you before.

Our work together creates magic, not by adding more *stuff* for you to do - sure, you learn all the skills, strategies, techniques, and life hacks you could ever need to become an expert at living in an enviably successful way. But the most beautiful magic happens when we start peeling back, lifting away layer after layer of stories that you've told yourself about who you are and what you're capable of. Our work goes DEEP, holding space for your unique voice, talents and gifts to rise and to thrive in full expression. That's where we do our work, and from that place, everything is possible.

I like to work with a high flame. Deep service of my people requires an uncommon level of honesty. I can be relied on to tell you things your best friend wouldn't. Working with me is not for the faint of heart. But for those brilliant few who are bored of 'comfortable' and want to grow, the results are phenomenal.

My background is in law, and I practiced as a family law barrister in Temple, London until 2010, when I took a leap into the unknown to follow my passion. That was the best decision I ever made. I am now based in Kent, England, where I live in the beautiful countryside, and work with people from all over the world. I am a multiple business owner, writer, artist, competitive powerlifter, and loving mum of three beautiful children.

Ruth Roethlisberger

INFO

After graduating University I have been working in tourism and controlling for 10 years before moving to Singapore with my family (2 girls now aged 6 & 8). That´s also where I became an OMNI certified therapist in 2014 as well as a HypnoKids specialist. After moving back to Switzerland at the beginning of 2015 I have started my own practice and started working mostly with adults. When my daughters started school I realised how many children struggle with having to sit still and not being able to concentrate as much as they were supposed to. Working with some of my daughters’ friends I realised that even just one or two sessions could make a big change for them. Since then I have been turning my interest more and more towards working with children at primary school age as this often is the age where problems with concentration and hyperactivity first come up. In 2015 and 2016 I attended the active alert hypnosis training level 1 & 2 with Claude Ribaux . The power of the hypnotic flow is so amazing and powerful for everyone and especially for my young clients that I use active alert hypnosis in every session with a child. I also have been giving lectures on topics like stress relief techniques, overcoming test anxiety and “how to follow your dreams and visions by creating a vision board,

Flávio Grzybowski

INFO

My name is Flávio and I am an orthopedic surgeon in Brazil. I'm specializing in chronic pain control. I found in Hypnosis a new path to be trodden. I see that many patients in Brazil are not receiving the best treatment for their suffering, because the cause is not only organic and this is neglected. I see that with Hypnosis I can be a better qualified professional and I can give better support to my patients. I apply hypnotic language in emergency services and study very much the importance of speaking the right terms with tenderness and care, because a poorly spoken word can generate much more suffering and distress in someone who needs so much care. I apply pain and anxiety control in pre and postoperative periods of orthopedic patients, with incredible results and easily applicable protocols. In training, I advise other doctors about the importance of three main pillars of emergency hypnosis: Pain control + preoperative anxiety control + postoperative recovery. Brazil is a Latin country, with emotion being the main guide to the appearance of the hypnotic phenomenon. With specific approaches associated with the stimulation of the parasympathetic system, I get the hypnotic phenomenon with fast and effective results. I put as a great differential the experience in living in a country with a lot of prejudice, where the applications of hypnosis find several barriers. I look forward to a new perspective of hypnosis within trauma hospitals with people in need. Work in the control of chronic pain and with clinical hypnosis in the Koru Hypnosis - company formed with my wife, Marcella Brunhara.

Garry Coles

INFO

One of only a very small number hypnotherapists in the UK (and probably Europe) to hold an MSc in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Referred to in the industry as 'The Hypnotherapist's Hypnotherapist' due to the number of hypnotherapists Garry offers treatment, training and mentoring for, Garry also counts numerous Doctors, Psychologists, Psychotherapists and Counsellors amongst his patients (and has taught many of them hypnotherapy) and is seen as the 'goto' hypnotherapist for the more challenging cases from all over the UK (and abroad). Practising as a full time therapist for many years, Garry has busy private practices in five locations in the South East; Farnham and Guildford in Surrey, Odiham and Fleet in Hampshire and Harley Street in central London. Garry is also one of the few hypnotherapists contracted to the NHS for hypnotherapeutic work, he consults on a regular basis at a major hospital specialising in oncology based hypnotherapy work. He also practises from within a local GP surgery, with the GP's referring many of the patients directly. In addition, he receives hospital referrals and referrals from many other local GPs and health care professionals. Garry has over twelve years of hypnotherapy experience in an oncological setting where he is the resident hypnotherapist in a major hospital offering hypnotherapy treatment for a myriad of cancer related issues. He has received specialist cancer hospital training. He also spent a year imbedded in the hospital’s Breast Cancer Multidisciplinary Team attending weekly meetings with the surgeons and oncology team to discuss cases and treatments. Garry carried out the first ground breaking UK clinical research project into the effects of pre-surgical hypnotherapy on the recovery quality in breast cancer biopsies. The results were acclaimed and are awaiting publication. Garry was elected to (by his peers in the industry) to the Hypnotherapy Profession Specific Board (PSB) for the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) where he advises the CNHC on all aspects of hypnotherapy governance and training. Garry successfully presented at HT Live 2017 for the first time, receiving great feedback and was followed up extensively, post conference particularly by physicians eager to know more. His first Hypno-Oncology masterclass sold out in a day and had to be doubled in size, which then virtually sold out in a week. Due to worldwide demand another date has now been scheduled for the USA in August 2018.
