The Quest Institute

When I was a 21-year old Kickboxer, I left the crowd I was training with (where I had all-too-quickly become the main fighter) and started with a new Instructor called Dev Barrett, where the established fighters looked at me like I was something they had trodden in. At Dev's I was way down the food chain, but I learned quickly and well.

I believe if you want to be the best, you have to train with the best.

Therefore I am proud to have trained with Trevor and Rebecca Silvester of the Quest Institute. Trevor is the founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy, an internationally renowned author and trainer - and an exceptional therapist in his own right, with 20 years experience. He has trained hundreds of therapists in his unique, respectful style.

TQI is an organization and group of like-minded people for whom ethics, respect and dignity are principles not buzz-words. I spent years looking for the right, reputable place to train, and the best, most honest people to train with. Once I'd discovered the Quest Institute I knew instantly that I'd found what I'd been looking for, and everything I have learned since has reinforced that belief.

Hypnotherapy, a bit like Martial Arts, is riddled with people who have the 'one true way'. Their way is the only way, and if they can't help you that's probably your fault. Trevor Silvester's approach could not be more different. He works tirelessly, researching many different fields and techniques. The questions he asks are simply 'Is this respectful and ethical?' and 'Does it work'. If the answer to these questions is 'Yes' then he will find a way to teach it to others.

Quest-trained therapists are trained to meet the client in their 'Model of The World'. Basically that means that we adapt our tools and experience to suit your issue - not the other way around. We know that one size does not fit all and your treatment will be specifically designed around you. Made-to-measure instead of off-the-shelf. This makes us refreshingly different. Don't take my word for it - ask around.

But perhaps the greatest gift that Quest gives to it's graduates is the ongoing support network. This means I have access at my fingertips to more than 200 fellow therapists, with tens of thousands of hours of experience.

Please feel free to check out the Quest Institute on . I am confident you will be suitably impressed. You will find no hard sell. You will find no nonsense. You may just find stuff that will change your life!
