Andrew T Austin 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 have appeared on the BBC program, "Inside Out" (the episode where the cat is registered as a hypnotherapist) as well as on local radio and network television in India and I have written for The Fortean Times, Best magazine. As a speaker I regularly present at conferences and practice groups, including the NLP Conference in London, The James Braid Society, The International Bariatric Surgery Conference in Turkey, Advanced Mastery Training (AMT) in the USA and university psychology departments and faculties.

In addition to, "The Rainbow Machine", I also appear in several other books including, "Strange Fruit from a Bitter Tree" by Mark Andreas, "Help With Negative Self Talk" by Steve Andreas and "Restoring Hope: Appreciative Strategies to Resolve Grief and Resentment" by Rob Voyle.

Based in the seaside village of Rustington, West Sussex, England, I am a hypnotherapist with a background clinical experience in neurosurgery and neurology in my former profession as a registered nurse. I work from home for client work and Skype sessions are available for one-to-one sessions for people who are unable to travel and international clients.

I have been teaching Hypnotherapy and Brief Therapy techniques 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.

    "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, Ph.D. 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
