Dr Mark Chambers

Mark ChambersI qualified as a doctor in 1981 at the University of Sheffield. After completing Vocational Training for General Practice in Lincoln, in 1985 I joined the Long Melford Practice in Suffolk as a full-time GP partner, and for 23 years, a GP Trainer until I retired in August 2017 to pursue my interests in coaching and the practice and teaching of Complementary Techniques. Throughout my career I have had an interest in psychological medicine and the role of Complementary Therapies in General Practice and have trained in several modalities including Medical Hypnosis, Mindfulness, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Thought Field Therapy, EMDR, Havening and Reiki. I incorporate all of these into my medical, coaching and training practices.

In 2012 I was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of GPs in recognition of my contribution to General Practice Training in Suffolk, and particularly for my innovative approach and the use of Complementary Techniques in all aspects of my work.

Since 2013 I have been providing life-coaching services for medical and allied professionals via AKESO, a medical charity.

Since retiring from General Practice I now work as a Mind-Trainer. I consult and coach in private practice in Suffolk and Harley Street, London. Alongside this I am teaching people Mindfulness with my colleague Jennie Thornton. I am also teaching hypnosis for the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis and the UK Hypnosis Academy. I assist Kevin Laye in training his Psy-Tap techniques and I am involved in establishing a Faculty of Psycho-Sensory Medicine for the College of Medicine.

I believe that my professional role is to help people to reconnect with their own natural resources, skills and abilities to heal and grow, and mend when necessary. When all the medicine has been done people can often be helped further by education and building hope and motivation.

Barry Neale

Barry NealeBarry Neale is one of the most qualified and experienced hypnotists in the UK and has been an expert in rapid change. He has been studying hypnosis for over 40 years and has decades of experience helping people to make profound changes in their lives in a short period of time.

In the mid 90s he travelled extensively across the USA studying with the best of the best and became a certified trainer of NLP and hypnosis with the ABNLP and the NFNLP. He has studied hypnosis and NLP with some of the biggest names in the field such as: Richard Bandler, John Overdurf, Julie Silverthorn, Christina Hall, Robert McDonald, Robert Dilts, Tim Hallbom, Steve Andreas, Ormond McGill, Jerry Kein, Gil Boyne, Cal Banyan, Don Mottin, Jerry Valley, Jeff Zeig and David Lessor. He has also trained in EMDR, EFT, TFT, IEMT, Havening, and PsyTap. He also has one of the biggest collection of home study courses around having invested many thousands in keeping up to date with modern advances in therapy and neuroscience.

During the late 90s/early 00s he built a highly successful private practice working with over 40 clients a week in Romford. He literally helped tens of thousand of people make massive changes in their lives. It was during this period that he developed his highly successful stop smoking method which helped the majority of people stop smoking in just one hour. This method was then developed into the £1000 a day Stop Smoking training for professional hypnotherapists and more than 350 were trained in the UK alone and many more in the US. Many of the these trainees went on to open very profitable hypnosis centres around the country helping 10s of thousands to stop smoking quickly and easily.

Since then he has taken a step back from teaching and gone back to the trenches by learning and studying and most importantly applying new techniques for rapid and profound change which he calls, Accelerated Change Techniques. These techniques are designed to help those suffering with the effects of childhood trauma, panic, anxiety and depression and can help people quickly without the need for long drawn out talk therapy. On the private side he is a passionate competitive western horse rider who competes at the top level in UK rodeos across the country. Working and training horses has opened his eyes to different methods of training that also have applications when working with humans.

After years of being out of the training arena he has finally decided to come back after being saddened by the current state of some hypnosis trainings that are still teaching outdated methods to impressionable students who go out into the therapy world with the proper tools to help them succeed.

Jennie Thornton

Jennie ThorntonI have been involved in educating and teaching for over 30 years, working in a variety of institutions and teaching a varied range of disciplines from Performance Arts and LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) at the Birmingham School of Acting, now part of Birmingham City University, physical education to pre-school children and working as a Youth Worker for Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council. Here one of my duties was as a Rifle Shooting Instructor teaching the skill for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. I gained a BA (Hons) in English at The University of Birmingham in 2000 and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in Drama in 2001 and have taught in schools, institutions and privately ever since.

For several years now I have studied, qualified and practiced in a range of complementary therapies. I am a Mindfulness Trainer and teacher; Master NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) practitioner with a certificate in Teaching Excellence; and a Thought Field Therapy, Hypnosis, Kinetic Shift, Havening and IEMT practitioner. I also work with a range of Psy-Tap psychotherapeutic techniques created by Kevin Laye. As I have learnt and qualified, these modalities have all been incorporated into my work, whether in school, private work with individuals, or teaching Mindfulness and Well-Being. They are all wonderfully non-invasive and have no side effects.  

I am currently a Mindfulness trainer for the Central England College and teaching Mindfulness with my colleague Mark Chambers. We teach in schools, medical establishments, privately and at Clare Priory in Suffolk. I deliver Well-Being courses that include Mindfulness and Psy-Tap psychosensory techniques for university students, trainee teachers and teachers. I am also passionate about the Performing Arts and teach Speech and Drama and Public Speaking, helping students excel in performance and overcome any performance phobias or issues.

Having worked in education all of my adult life, it quickly became clear that a good education is about much more than just academic achievement. For people to excel and succeed requires them having a good sense of well-being and sound mental health. So my aim has always been to help and enable people to learn, grow spiritually and emotionally and overcome challenges. This frees and allows them to develop and maintain their well-being and to reach their own personal potential. I believe that the attainment of knowledge, physical well-being and good mental health should be treated as a holistic whole.
