Speech at NCHP Conference 2011

Robin presented at the Ramada Jarvis Hotel Leicester on Sunday the 12th of June 2011.
The presentation was very well received and the balance between being informative and humour was acheived. Robin demonstrated Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, the teachings of Dr Claire Weekes and the work of Psychiatrist Milton Erickson the world famous Hypnotherapist.

This is what Ralph Benko, editor of Pnosis online, one of USA’s leading Hypnotherapy website’s said about Robin’s succesful combination of these therapetic approaches:

“Pnosis applauds, and commends to the world’s attention, Thorburn’s pioneering work in combining the insights of psychiatrist/clinical hypnotist Milton Erickson with those of psychologist Albert Ellis. Both of these great psychotherapists left the world with insights that have not yet been fully assimilated by the professions of psychotherapy and hypnotism. Thorburn’s conjoining of the two potentially represents a signal event in the annals of the betterment of humanity. While of primary importance to clinical mental health professionals, Thorburn’s work offers an important contribution to professional hypnotists as well as psychotherapists”.

Below is the final paragraph of the hour long seminar.

“My interpretation of REBT is it works-long term!
