Emma Johnson 

MBRsS 
Emma is an eclectic therapist, trained in traditional counselling and alternative approaches, with 20 years of experience in mental health, having worked in secure units and the community. She currently specialises in working with chronic illness including ME and Chronic Fatigue, anxiety and mood disorders, post-traumatic stress, and performance issues as well as putting up with James. 
 
She achieved an honours degree (BSc) in Psychology and Counselling and undertook further postgraduate training (MA) in Psychotherapy and Counselling. Her favoured traditional approach was humanistic-existential and she practised in this way for several years working in mental health, HIV/AIDS support work, youth counselling and a rape and sexual abuse support work. Over time she became dissatisfied with the sometimes slow and partial results of traditional talking therapy and embarked upon a search of modern progressive approaches to reinvigorate her practice. She passed her Diploma in Integrated Energy Techniques: EFT, NLP and Ericksonian Hypnosis; her Certificate and Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy (HypCert, DCH) and The Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD). She began to integrate her original traditional paradigm with brief strategic and solution-focused techniques to get deeper results faster. 
 
Discovering EFT was the real epiphany she had been searching for. Amazed by the swift deeply effective and lasting results, she was immediately converted and was delighted with the way in which EFT both complimented and enhanced her work. Now, having several years' experience as an Advanced EFT Practitioner and AAMET Registered Trainer, Emma is passionate about spreading knowledge of this powerful tool to both therapists and non-therapists alike. 
 
She is a Member of the British Psychological Society (BPsS); The British Institute of Hypnotherapy & NLP (BIH); The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH); The American Board of NLP (ABNLP); and the Association for the Advancement of Meridian Techniques (AAMET). 

Massimo Vencato 

BSc(hons) PGDCHyp SNLP LCA, TFTdx PGDEIC 
Course lecturer, Co Founder of EIC 
Massimo is a professional Lifestyle Coach, Hypnotherapist, Presenter, Lecturer, Trainer and internationally qualified NLP Practitioner. Massimo's unique and inspiring methods have motivated hundreds to excel themselves and fulfil their dreams. His clients have included National and International Athletes, CEOs, Directors, and Sport Teams. His qualifications allow him to work within a holistic framework, spanning from exercise therapy and nutrition to mental and emotional health. Currently Massimo is completing a Doctoral research in Sports and Exercise Psychology at Brunel University West London. 
 
Massimo has an enormous depth of understanding of nutrition and sports psychology, which he has combined with therapeutic motivation to help athletes and patients alike to achieve their aims. Massimo explains, "A habit is maintained by emotion," e.g., when this happens I feel anxious and I reach for a cigarette, coffee, food, or alcohol. In other words, we do not keep our habits because of external events, but by our internal processes - feelings. We respond to how we feel! Massimo's method reduces or eliminates the feelings that motivate the trigger to respond. As the feelings are no longer driving the behaviour it is a matter of deconditioning the learned response. By using our eclectic approach and joint clinical experience we have adapted these brief strategic interventions and traditional disciplines into a cohesive eclectic approach to therapeutic change: EIC. 
 
Massimo is Co-Founder and Lecturer of EIC, the following are some remarks made by therapists who attended his recent lecture:
