“Attending Metaphors of Movement was enlightening and I think you have began to add a very important intervention to a Therapists tool box and created another model for creating personal change. Focusing on behaviour and what we do when in a situation that is causing distress is liberating and as designed enables movement instead of inertia and sometimes paralysis. The content was clearly delivered and as always with fun and humour.” J. Bissett
“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, Ph.D. Co-director The NLP Center of New York
“After attending a workshop with Andy I put into practice within a week my new found skills – WOW! – amazing and rapid results. I believed I listened to my clients, I now knew that I didn’t hear their movement, or lack of it!! Within 2 hours a client who had spent thousands of pounds seeking a cure from others found the right way forward, and could engage their gear. Previously everything was going wrong (and the movement metaphors were going left) and when things went the right way she found movement. We had walls that could be seen over, but couldn’t be got over; scared of falling on their bum……. and literally a numb bum, that triggered instant movement, and a desire to move forward through engaging their gears. Applying a bit of filtering and a walk down a funny road and she had successfully made a way forward, specifically the right way forward. A 3 day check in for feedback and the feedback was good – the best session ever, and the best technique I had used. A successful outcome? Yeah – even the client left feeling good!! I would recommend that all practitioners who want to support their clients achieve movement learn this great skill.” Lesley Hoyle (NLP Practitioner, registered nurse in previous career)
