Talk About The Seeds Of Change…
Nick Kemp has been involved in the field of personal change for over thirty years, having studied many forms of communication and personal development, including Hypnosis, Provocative Therapy and NLP. Between 1980 and 1998 he taught workshops on personal development. Nick works on a group and individual basis for professional and personal work. He runs a successful private practice, and also provides business trainings to companies by appointment. In 2004 Nick Kemp met Frank Farrelly, (creator of Provocative Therapy and influence on the creators of NLP) and began an intensive training with him to become one of a very small number of Farrelly internationally approved Provocative Therapy Trainers.
Nick and Frank became firm friends, co presenting at Provocative Therapy events as well as spending far too many hours watching classic movies at Nick’s home cinema in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Nick set up The Association for Provocative Therapy (AFPT), and released “Provocative Change Works for Phobias”, which was the first of a number of DVD sets with commentary from Frank Farrelly himself. As well as teaching classic Provocative Therapy (PCW), Nick has created his own Provocative Change Works approach which he teaches internationally as well as with private clients.

During her Teaching career, I specialised in working with adults from Marginalised groups. (The vulnerably housed, Rough Sleepers, Asylum Seekers and those fleeing Domestic Violence.)
For the last 15 years, she has worked exclusively, in private practice as a Therapist, utilising, Hypnosis, NLP, Shamanism. Jungian and Existential theories, underpin her approach.
Shamanism captured her attention as a 19yrs old, during a trip to West Africa. She had her first spiritual extraction and power retrieval by a local Medicine man aka the Marabou man. This encounter led to further journeys to learn from Indigenous Tribes, in particular tribes from the Upper Amazon Jungle and the Andean mountains.
Blending Shamanic tools and approaches, into her Therapy work was a real ‘game changer’ and she continues to be astounded by the profound changes people experience, by re-integrating spirituality into their lives.
Now she is currently training to be a professional Idiot, which is the art of Sacred Clowning, alongside writing a book about her former life.
James has spent the past 20 years perfecting his skills as a world class magician, pickpocket and hypnotist.
After leaving university in Southampton James began a career in psychiatry in Bournemouth and spent several years developing his understanding of psychology and human behaviour. During this time James became fascinated with perceptional psychology – the way in which people perceive the reality around them and the ease in which they are deceived and manipulated. After seeing a close up magician performing on television James started to look closer at the similarities between magic and psychology…
