“Andrew Austin is clear, original, and outspoken about mental illness, medication, and psychiatry. His skills were honed by years of experience in the “trenches” of psychiatry, so he knows what he is talking about.”

– Steve Andreas, author of “Transforming Your Self”

“Andy Austin is an intelligent and entertaining trainer. He demonstrates high standards regarding working with clients and more importantly, he trains you to become aware of yourself as the clinician/coach in all types of situations. His material is very useful for individuals who want to increase their therapeutic skills. He cleverly leads students to find the answers within and then offers new ideas to challenge their learning even more. I have enjoyed my experiences learning from Andy and I recommend him as a trainer.”

– Rachel Hott, Ph.D. Co-director The NLP Center of NY

“Hugely congruent and massively practical. Andy’s training is clear, concise and very memorable with stories of his own provocative and effective therapy he will have you laughing and crying. IEMT is a rapid and wonderfully content free intervention. Anyone with a serious commitment to really increasing their clinical skills must attend one of Andy’s trainings.”
