James Tripp

 

what's happening...

My names is James Tripp, and currently I am ‘on the road’, traveling around the world for one year with my family (my wife and our two daughters). Our mission is to explore and experiment with living in different countries and to grow both individually and as a family as we go.

Some have said ‘congratulations on living your dream’ - a much appreciated sentiment! But the truth is, this is not really what we are doing… not living our dreams but living our choices.

Of course, many have also cautioned us against this, considering it reckless, irresponsible and unnecessarily risky - after all I gave up my nice offices and training facility along with a tried and tested business model that worked in order to do this - but a life of certainty and predictability has at least as many minuses as pluses.

As I travel I am continuing to create (programs, blogs, webinars etc.) and run my ‘anti-business’ - it means a big change in how I do my work… which is all cool, as change is the engine of evolution!

One aspect of this change is that more of my creation will be taking place through this webspace (as opposed to Hypnosis Without Trance). Alongside this, there will be an increased focus on coaching creators...

...those who are committed to recreating themselves and/or their lives along more fulfilling and personally meaningful lines.


Professional Bio...

James Tripp is an internationally recognised and respected coach, people developer and teacher of self-mastery and influential communication. James has been proactively involved with self-transformation and developing personal adaptedness and personal performance via various paths since 1992 (beginning at age 19 with a resolution to increase his own levels of impact and influence). He has been working professionally as a skills trainer and people developer since 2003 and coaching one-on-one since 2007.

Coming from a diverse background in philosophy, martial arts, transformative hypnosis and NLP, James is also the developer of the critically acclaimed Hypnosis Without Trance approach to hypnosis - a pragmatic approach that focuses on the use of language and communication to direct attention and seed ideas, for the purpose of assisting a person in altering their experience and perception.

As a result of his reputation for skill with hypnotic language influential communication, James has been sought out to consult in the fields of sales, changework, transformative coaching, teaching and business leadership. As a trainer, he has been invited to teach all over the world from Europe to Australia to the US, and his London and UK workshops typically draw students from around the world who come specifically to learn his unique approaches.

James also teaches 'mind tech' and communication skills/strategies privately and provides ongoing professional development mentoring for coaches, changework practitioners and other professional communicators.

 


Peer Feedback

"James, James, James... I want to let you know how much I appreciate your work. I am an NLP and Hypnosis Trainer (US and UK) with a 30 year history in the field, and quite frankly, when I look around the 'academic and professional hypnosis community', I see more bullshit than substance.

It is refreshing to see you at your art... and your great language utilization is as natural as it is effective. You are a member of an elite circle... you are the real deal."

Michael Watson - International Trainer of NLP

"Unlike some other coaches (and I know a lot), he has developed the knack of switching attention to the aspects of life that REALLY inspire and excite you, as a unique individual. A session that may perhaps have started on a rather flat note builds into a beautiful, rhythmic tune… and finally to a glorious crescendo of energy and motivation.

Wrapped into that effortless-looking process is a huge amount of skill and experience. I unhesitatingly recommend James and his work.”

“I have worked professionally as an agent of change for twelve years, done thousands of client sessions and read several hundred books on Psychology, NLP and Hypnosis...

James gave me several useful nuances that I am using in my daily work, and his ideas have inspired me to develop some useful modifications, experiments and techniques of my own. Strongly recommended!”

Jørgen Rasmussen – Author of Provocative Hypnosis and Provocative Suggestions

“I thoroughly recommend spending some time in [James'] company. He knows many things, has the flexibility of an NLPer (a good one) the intent of a hypnotist (a good one) and the manners of a true gent.

He will bend you in two with his mind.”

Coaching

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
R. Buckminster Fuller

 

The coaching/personal consultation I offer is all about your personal and professional evolution.

The work is about transforming your understanding of key aspects of life (and self) so as you can meet the world and engage with it as a creator. This means going beyond merely reacting to and trying to micromanage the circumstances of life (one-damn-thing-after-another) and stepping into a position where you can 'work with the flow' to create an enriching and fulfilling life for both yourself and those you steward (family, friends, colleagues, employees etc.).

Each coaching consultation is a conversation between two intelligent systems - together we will explore your current behaviours and habitual results and how they connect with the deep unconscious assumptions that drive them. Out of this exploration emerges new was of seeing, new ways of being and new ways of doing.

Who is this for?

We are living in transitional times. As I write this one in seven of the UK workforce is now self employed - individuals carving out their destiny as captains of their own ships in changing technological, cultural and economic waters. And for those who remain in traditional employment the game is changing fast - stay fresh and ahead of the curve or get wiped out. We all need to find our own ways to create unique value and to connect it with the world... and ensure that our needs are met in terms of health, wealth and relationships as we do so. This is the way the economy and culture are moving.

Through my work I've seen people transforming their lives and waking up to new possibilities and ways of being on multiple levels. I've seen 'worker drones' transforming themselves into business creators, shaping their own destinies.  Musicians and performers overcome limitations that have held them back. Professionals of all sorts transcend procrastination and fear of failure. And all manner of people transcend all manner of perceived limitations.

A professional poker player I worked with learned to bring more authenticity and presence into his connections and relationships. A Record Producer re-booted his career and took his artist development expertise to a whole other level. A PR Consultant breathed new life into her business after taking time away to raise her children. A Managing Director (with over 1000 people under his charge) overcame a growing problem with anxiety and panic attacks and regained his strength and grounding... just a few of many possible examples.

There is a 'hidden curriculum' to these transitional times... new demands upon us in terms of how we must engage if we are to fully participate and thrive. If you are already feeling this and are looking to get yourself ahead of the curve, please do contact me on tripp@jamestripp.co.uk and let me know something of where you and what it is you are looking to create, transform or achieve.

What is the work like?

This work is about meaningful personal evolution and real-world results. It is for those who understand that they can learn, change and grow in profound ways and who are willing to immerse themselves fully in that process.

To work with me in a coaching context, commitment to your personal evolution is a requirement, along with a readiness to alter your behaviors, actions, attitudes and mindsets as needed in order to get the results that you desire:

  • Commitment to your personal evolution
  • Readiness to alter behaviors, actions, attitudes and mindsets

With these in place, you are powerful and coaching is powerful - switch on, take ownershipengage fully and apply what you learn and your life will transform.

Every coaching session/consultation is a conversation between two intelligent systems (you and I) and within that context I will be showing up 100% committed to your success and personal evolution. With this work my heart and focus will be with serving you and not necessarily pleasing you. If we are doing deep work, I will be challenging the foundations of your reality, which is my side of the business. What you do with that and how you engage with it is your side of the business (although I will be coaching you on that too).

This work is for those who know they intend to make good use of it. As such commitment is a prerequisite upon commencement. There are no refunds available should you - for whatever reason - choose to quit.

Formats and Fees

In the main I offer Coaching, Personal Development and Apprenticeship (for coaches/transformative facilitators) programmes only. Very occasionally I will offer a single conversation or an intensive (one or two days), but only if that seems like the best fit. Unless arranged otherwise, all coaching is via Skype/telephone and email.

Fees for programmes will vary depending upon duration, intensity and format details, and range from £1250 to £25000.

More importantly, in addition to the fee, you will also be investing your time, energy and commitment to creating a transformation in your life or a result that is truly worthwhile - this is what this work is all about.

"...s**t James, that's some powerful voodoo you've got there! :-) I've got more done in the last 5 weeks than I have in the previous 12 months combined, and am already seeing clear results."

Andy J Davies - Music Artist Development Consultant and Record Producer

 

"James Tripp is one of the most powerful coaches I have had the chance to work with!

It is said that when you are ready and looking for a mentor, s/he will show up for you. Last spring it was my time, to meet mine, and I enjoyed every moment of it.

Any words I could use to describe my experience with James Tripp would be too weak. And yet, it was nothing that he did TO me - he helped me uncover and manifest that I already had inside, but I wasn't sure if I was "allowed" to uncover."

Cezar Cehan - Sales Trainer, Coach and Author of Heart to Heart Selling

Hypnotic reprocessing and Generative Trancework

Generative trance work is all about deep personal exploration and reprocessing, orientated towards problem solving and personal evolution/transformation.

The term ‘trance’ is used here poetically rather than scientifically to mean any state of deep absorption. From this perspective people could be said to drop into trances all the time as they become absorbed in different experiences in life - love trances, excitement trances, movie watching trances, sports trances, musical trances etc.

They also get caught up in problem trances - worry trances, panic trances, anger trances, habit trances, addiction trances, stress trances etc.  These kind of trances undermine productivity, self efficacy, relationships, health, general wellbeing and overall quality of life. It is the aim of Generative Trancework to assist people in transforming or transcending their problem trances.

How?

When we get caught in a problem trance, it is near impossible to think our way out of it because our thinking gets directly dictated by it. We get tied into a self perpetuating reality tunnel that disconnects us from the understandings and personal resources we need to escape it. On the flip side, when we are outside of the problem trance (when we are not doing the problem) we cannot see it or it’s structure because it isn’t happening at that moment.

So, with problem trances logic and regular narrow linear thinking doesn’t have any power to get us out of them, so we need to go in from a different perspective - we need to alter our state, expand our consciousness and start reprocessing the problem content in a very different way (more right brain, less left brain - see video below). This is what we do with generative trance work.

In a sense generative trance blurs boundaries between normally distinct brain networks allowing new patterns of connection to form. From this perspective, it is a form of deep learning that enables you to connect up existing personal resources (encoded in those brain networks) in new and generative ways.

Trancework is as old as Humankind...

Problem solving and personal evolution have been facilitated through trance like processes all the way back to the beginnings of humankind (through mystical and shamanistic traditions), but in the west we have largely lost touch with these traditions. The modern western tradition is carried forward from Franz Anton Mesmer under the banner ‘hypnosis’ which is a term I prefer to avoid in this context due to the many popular misconceptions perpetuated by the media and entertainment hypnotists (i.e. the whole ‘mind control’ myth).

What can it help with?

Generative Trancework is about self recreation. It is about transforming aspects of yourself - habits, reactions, attitudes, ways of being - that you would prefer to be a different way. during my time working professionally I have helped people...

  • Overcome fears and anxiety
  • Build self esteem, self efficacy and self belief
  • Transcend addictions
  • Change habitual behaviours and problematic reactions
  • Change attitudes (become more assertive, more joyful, less angry etc.)
  • Overcome problem responses
  • Improve personal relationships
  • Move on from relationship breakups
  • Move on from their pasts

how many sessions will it take?

This is a question that is very natural for people to ask and, in reality, impossible to honestly answer, because...

  1. Psychologically, people are complex systems.
  2. With complex systems, it is impossible to predict the future.

Of course, educated guesses can always be made, but they are always ultimately guesses.

My advice to people is to forget about 'getting through' the work and focus on 'getting into' the work. From that place a person becomes best placed to get the most from each trancework session.

That said, I would say that the average number of sessions I work with a person on a specific issue is 3 to 4. For some, a single session meets their needs. Others choose to engage in ongoing personal exploration and development through trancework. (And, of course, some do one session and decide for whatever reason it's not for them.)

 

Is it Scientific?

Personally speaking, I see Trancework as an art, not a science... but this doesn't mean that there isn't science that supports it.

Regarding it's underpinnings, little is understood at the moment about what might be going on. At the moment, it seems that it involves shifting our 'mode of mind' to more 'right brain' rather than more 'left brain' processing...

There are other scientifically based perspectives  on what might be happening with Generative Trancework including (of particular influence on me) Dr. Les Fehmi's Open Focus Brain theory.

What is also clear is that the kinds of deep changes that are possible through Trancework (and allied technologies such as Mindfulness, Open Focus etc) are a function of neuroplastic change in the brain. This video relates to meditation, but the findings can be transferred to Trancework.
