His book “Transforming Communication” has been a core text in several New Zealand university programs. He has been a personal trainer for some top New Zealand business and sports people, including leading New Zealand triathlete Steve Gurney, who says “A BIG thanks to you Richard for the NLP work we did. I’m astounded at how quickly you arrive at a solution. It totally turns my thinking around 180 degrees to a resolved and determined attitude. A much more positive state. Race day was incredibly enjoyable and it was just a breeze. Powerful stuff.”
Steve Andreas, co-developer of NLP and author of “NLP: The New Technology of Achievement” says “Richard Bolstad is one of the finest NLP trainers I know. Besides being personable, engaging, and high energy, he is very skilled, with a rare breadth and depth of knowledge.” Joseph O’Connor, author of “Successful Selling With NLP”, and “Practical NLP For Managers”, says “Richard’s work will leave you with a deeper knowledge of NLP, whether you are already familiar with the field or not.”
“Having worked in the training and communications field for more than 20 years I have experienced a great number of trainers and speakers, but very few great speakers and trainers. Richard Bolstad is one of those great presenters. His absolute credibility is the result of a depth and breadth of knowledge gained internationally and nationally…
Felix is a chartered psychologist, clinical hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. He has demonstrated rapid-change therapy using clinical hypnosis with a 100% success rate with hyper-phobics on BBC3’s “The Panic Room”, as well using more conventional psychological approaches as on the TV show “Freaky Eaters”.
Felix believes in leading by example so in the course of his TV work he has variously walked over burning coals, jumped out of a plane, broken through a 2 inch wooden board with the palm of his hand, and held all manner of tarantulas, snakes and giant hissing cockroaches to illustrate how we can all learn to manage our anxiety.
Asides from these more dramatic displays of therapy for fears and phobias, Felix has been interviewed on radio and on dozens of articles on the most common psychological conditions affecting modern society: chronic anxiety, stress, depression, addictions, relationship conflicts and the feeling that something is missing is life. He remains passionate about promoting the benefits of modern integrative therapy in all these areas and has written a book on how the relationship between the conscious and unconscious mind determines our emotional and mental health…
