What is this website about?
The Practical Wellbeing website is for people who want to accept themselves more and get out of their own way. It is about:
- Accepting yourself: the ability to honestly recognise your complete experience of being human with compassion and courage.
- Getting out of your own way: dissolving limiting beliefs and blocks, the unconscious saboteurs that stand in the way of your progress.
- New techniques (based on EFT and NLP): for working with issues of self-acceptance or self-sabotage for professionals and lay-people alike.
- Reflecting on personal change: Since I do therapy, I sometimes write about the process of therapy and personal change, what it is and how I do this work.
Who is Andy Hunt?
I’m a Master Practitioner and Trainer of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and also a Practitioner and Trainer of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). I’ve been practising NLP since 2000 and EFT for 2004.
I’m a member of the Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (NLPtCA) my professional body and follow their code of conduct. I’m also a member of the Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques AAMET and The Professional Guild Of NLP.
Since leaving university 25 years ago, I’ve had a variety of jobs including: milkman, assistant steward on an Irish Sea ferry, Residential Social Worker at a centre for delinquent teenagers, Assistant Head of Youth Centre in Brixham, grape picker in Switzerland, spring grinder(!) in Germany, night porter, barman, software engineer, and now therapy and training.
I’ve been an undisciplined student of yoga for 20 years, and a practising Buddhist (meditating on and off) for 20 years.
I was recently interviewed by my friend and fellow therapist Iain MacKenzie about the kind of work that I do and the way that I do it.
I hope you find them interesting.
