This set represents a typical day in the clinical practice of Andrew T. Austin
“My work is constantly developing and changing. This is important to know, because if I may be so crass, I shall borrow a term from the mystic and author, Dion fortune. There are things I wrote and did before, which, in the light of wider experience, I would not write or do today, and to cite these as evidence against me is to deny the possibility of human progress. It’s a great get-out clause, admittedly, but as it stands at this time in October 2011, I think these sessions illustrate well what I believe to be typical examples of my work at this time and I am proud to be able to demonstrate them here.” Andrew T. Austin

The Pragmatics of Change – the distressed late guy by Andrew T. Austin (DVD)
Dealing with extreme emotional distress – when really bad stuff happens to really good people
Filmed in its entirety, this is one of the sessions that Andrew T. Austin regards as one of the best demonstrations of his work from 2009. The client in this session has struggled for a long time with serious feelings of depression. Advanced practitioners would do well to study the language patterns used in this unusual client session. This is very much “secret work”, as the content and story of the client’s problems remain undisclosed throughout the session.
Disregarding the negative effects of these problems upon his life, Austin quickly engages the client at the level of his personal strategies using his Metaphors of Movement approach to reframing. Working with both the psychological representations and the manner by which the client moves and positions his muscles, Austin’s unorthodox approach moves the client’s awareness away from the effect of how bad he feels and chunks up towards addressing the strategies by which the client addresses life’s challenges. Areas addressed or demonstrated in this DVD include metaphors of movement, advanced reframing, strategies, timeline organisation, future planning/future pacing and translating strategic thinking into physical actions. Having arrived distressed and very late owing to a long car journey and heavy traffic, the client’s level of stress is very noticeable at the beginning of the session. Towards the end of the session the level of change is very noticeable.
Following the session, the client wrote, “Many thanks for seeing me, despite my lateness! I really do believe that the long journey I made was worth every mile. The session with you seems to have changed my attitude and disposition already. Positive things are already happening to me. Shit, this is weird! A big thank you again.”
Client Session: Weight Loss Using Metaphors of Movement by Andrew T. Austin
Lori had successfully lost 150 pounds over a period of two years, with an intense program of exercise and food monitoring. However, for the last year she had “hit a plateau” with no further progress. In his uniquely creative and provocative style, neurolinguist and clinical hypnotherapist Andrew T. Austin helps Lori explore her “plateau” metaphor in detail, providing her with a range of new behavioral choices.
Whether you or your clients have “hit a plateau,” are “stuck in a rut,” or just “aren’t going anywhere,” when you watch this video you will learn more about how to use Metaphors of Movement to “head in the right direction”—towards powerful yet elegant changes with yourself and others.
