About Bill Frost
On a post-graduate basis, Bill trained as a clinical hypnotherapist with the London College of Clinical Hypnotherapy at Birkbeck College (University College London) and at Imperial College (South Kensington, London). (Accredited by the BACP and UKCP). He is now a full-time therapist and senior international clinical hypnosis / hypnotherapy / EMDR / NLP lecturer that has lectured for the London College of Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, LCCH International, LCCH Asia, the LCCH / University of West London partnership and currently with the London School of Clinical Communications and Hypnosis (LSCCH).
His main Clinical Hypnotherapy qualifications were examined/validated by the British Medical Hypnotherapy Examinations Board (BMHEB) / Greenwich University. (Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy / Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy). These qualifications were then maximised by undertaking NLP Practitioner / NLP Master Practitioner / NLP Life Coaching training (specifically for therapists) in the USA (trained personally by pioneering therapists John Overdurf and Julie Silverthorn – the founders of the Humanistic NLP movement).
Bill has also undertaken ongoing professional development training to ensure that his knowledge is updated with the latest research in the field. He also has training in other forms of psychological healing such as Reiki and Person-Centred Counselling in order to understand the process of suggestion that may underpin these approaches. He has been in practice since 1998.
Bill is a senior hypnotherapy lecturer & as an expert in the field, he has contributed to radio & television programmes including various series covering anger management, addiction treatment, eating disorders, OCDs and extreme phobias.
He has also undertaken research into computer-assisted psychotherapy, the result of which has been the innovative development of a series of software solutions for use by all psychotherapists throughout the world that help to facilitate very rapid change. Computer-assisted techniques are designed to be used in parallel with all other psychotherapeutic approaches.
Such approaches may include:
- EMDR Software (a powerful psychotherapy tool)
- NLP Software (Swish and Map Across techniques)
- MindSync sound waves
At Changing States new technologies are optionally used on an “as required” basis during sessions. Additionally, some tools are sometimes provided for use by clients when back at home.
His personal achievements scaling several high-altitude peaks including Everest Base Camp 5,500M (Nepal), Annapurna Base Camp 5,000M (Nepal) and Kilimanjaro 6,000M (Tanzania). Bill used his skills to overcome justifiable fears of altitude sickness before ascending his first high altitude mountain.
He is also a PADI certified (Open Water) scuba diver with experience in Thailand, Egypt and Tanzania (Zanzibar). Before learning to scuba dive he also used his skills to overcome fears of enclosed spaces / deep water. The ultimate test of this changed state was to undertake several deep-water dives through a large shipwreck at 90M in the Red Sea! Bill also has an interest in Buddhism and has spent time at a number of Buddhist monasteries learning aspects of the Buddhist approach to meditation and well being.
Bill has also spent time as a U.N. NGO aid-worker working in the Balcans and Albania during highly active phases of both conflicts. As a result, he has an extensive understanding of PTSD and trauma in general from a survivor’s perspective.
