Working One-to-One with James Tripp

Coaching - Consulting - Mentoring - Transformative Work

Coaching, Transformative Facilitation, Consulting and Apprenticeships...


Are you looking to develop yourself either professionally or personally as a hypnotist, influencer, communicator, connector or creator?

Would you like to be showing up in the world with more personal power and gravitas?

On this page you will find information on working with me within the context of three broad categories:

  • Coaching and Developmental Work
  • Professional Development
  • Consultation

Whilst these categories will be taken separately here, for many clients (particularly professional development clients) there can be a significant overlap.

Coaching and Developmental Work

  • Develop grounding and gravitas, personal communication and connection attributes, powerful inner stances, clarity of mind and deep personal understanding of both yourself and others.
  • Become who you need to be to create what you want to create into the world - businesses, art and social projects, personal projects and rich and fulfilling relationships and more.

Coaching and Developmental Work is geared towards you becoming you at your best - clearer, calmer, more present and more deeply connected to your innate resourcefulness and capability - living and creating from better qualities of mind and from within higher quality relationships.

My clients for this work already understand that the results you get in life are clearly dictated by how you show up and engage with the world and, as such, recognise the value in connecting with and developing their grounding, gravitas and personal power. They are people who have chosen to transform themselves and their results in life and are fully committed to doing just that.

The work itself is founded in Hypnosis, the best of NLP and coaching practice, ancient wisdom, modern psychology and, of course, my own personal and professional experience of human development. The work is all transformative in nature - not just changing what you do and think but HOW you do and think, because this is where the real results show up. As such, we are working predominantly from the 'inside-out' - dissolving fears, reorganising thinking and perception and transcending mind-created limitations. Occasionally, externally orientated skills development work is undertaken also, and in ongoing coaching, work on vision and strategy.

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 performance anxiety. Professionals 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 personal 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 possible examples.

What you get out of life is down to how you show up and engage, and this in turn comes from your grounding and inner stance. It is who you are being that counts... at your best, free from fears and self created limitations. Free to connect and create as you choose to.

If you are looking to play a bigger, more productive, more fulfilling game in life or there is something you are looking to create into the world (a project, a business, fulfilling relationships or more), fill out the application form below and if it looks like we might have a good fit, we can begin a conversation.

Professional Development

“You need a mentor... else, you’ll sink to the bottom. Someone has to show you how to move and breathe.”

James Altucher, Investor, Programmer, Author, and Serial Entrepreneur.

If you are looking to develop yourself as a successful professional communicator, transformative coach, hypnotist or NLPer and are looking to accelerate your progress and deepen your skills and understanding, you may already be aware that having good mentors is more a necessity than a choice.

The above quote (from James Altucher's excellent Ultimate Cheat Sheet For Reinventing Yourself - Google it when you are done here!) is not about this area specifically, but it holds just as true if not truer for Hypnosis, NLP and Coaching - be aware before you start that the world you are entering professionally has a low bar for entry but a very high bar for success. Most people don't make it because they do not have good mentors to optimise their learning curve and introduce them to the nuances of the essential 'bigger game' (that which doesn't get taught in basic skills training).

The mentoring I offer focuses on two levels:

  1. Developing your craft - this means getting super tight, super smooth and super centred in what specifically you do and how you do in.
  2. Developing your Grounding and Professionalism - this means showing up with clarity, presence, boldness, intelligence and personal leadership for every prospective client, referrer or personal 'success team' contact.

I call these two areas the 'Small Game' and the "Big Game' respectively - both are equally important for professional success (though most people give very little thought to the latter).

If you are interested in mentoring with me, there are two routes...


This follows essentially the same format as mentioned in the previous section (Coaching and Developmental Work), but with a slant towards your professional development and more direct 'how I understand and approach it' kind of input.


This option is only for those who are really serious about mastering hypnosis, transformative coaching and facilitation skills along with developing the professionalism required to create prosperity in their lives through their skills and knowledge.

An apprenticeship with me is a deep year-long commitment. Placements are strictly limited to 3 apprentices at any one time and are open only to those who meet the criteria (assessed through application and interview).

To give a sense of the commitment, apprenticeship includes weekly one-to-one sessions across 12 months along, attendance 6 apprenticeship only closed-group training/coaching weekends (held at HWT HQ in Hertfordshire, UK) and attendance on all other JT/HWT events. Apprentices also have full email and SMS access to get in touch when they need to.

If you are interested in mentoring or apprenticeship with me, please complete the application from and, if it looks like a good fit (and providing space is available), we can begin a conversation.

Application Form


Consultation is available on specific projects or situations. In the past I have consulted (contributing from my knowledge and expertise set) in such areas as sales, marketing, fundraising, personal relationships, hypnosis, personal change and more.

If there is any area that you would appreciate my input on, please do complete the form below and if I looks like we may be a good fit, we can look at booking in a consultation.

    If I wanted to be “certified” in this area/arena of Non Trance Hypnosis, do you offer that?

    • James Tripp

      October 25, 2014

      Well Michael, I MAY do in future, though I’m curious… what is it that you think having a certificate will do for you?

    Hi James,

    I am considering taking James Randi one million $ challenge. The only thing when dowsing is that you need to be relaxed, and I doubt I would be when taking such a challenge as my conscious mind would get in the way. My conscious mind can not dowse. I was thinking that hypnosis could be the answer, what do you think ?

    I am confident that this thing I discovered will work 100% as long as I am firing on all cylinders.

    Hey James,

    I very much enjoyed your work in Hypnosis without trance. Especially the part regarding memory and forgetting. Over the course of some time the pattern for name amnesia was learned by heart and gereralized. So the question for me as a Student now has become how to stop the automatic response to forget and distort information in a way that is not helping anyone.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Greetings from Germany

      Hi Raphael

      I’m not sure of the question… could you give me a concrete example of what you mean?

    Hi James,

    What are the requirement to qualify the apprentceship with you? I mean if I want to be your apprentice as a biginner what should be the requirements to be taken?

    I wanted to take a minute and thank you for the fine work pointing out the difference between trance work and working through a person apparent reality through maintaining and controlling the loop cycles. I have been a hypnotist and later a traditional hypnotherapist for 41 years, having done my first induction at age 13, in 1968. Through all of the years involved in the industry, I have never fallen out of love with it and have continued to learn more and more from so many wonderful people.

    As a life long learner, I will purchase and take a few of your home study courses, as I’m always open to learning from other perspectives and people who have found their own specialty. Of course my aspiration, is to be as perceptive as possible and remain smooth in all areas of my hypnotic language development.

    I think your explanations and assumptions are as correct as anyone else’s. After all, it isn’t about being right or wrong. Instead, it’s about getting results and helping to enhance someone’s life and experience. A wonderful opportunity to serve.

      Thank you, Ron

      I very much appreciate you taking the time to give that feedback!

      All the very best,


"Just letting you know how effective working with you has been... I’ve started back at work with such positive energy... I put this whole attitude adjustment down to the sessions we did."

- Ms EE, Business Owner & PR Consultant

"It's been 3 months since coaching with you... my effectiveness with my clients has at least DOUBLED! (And that's a very safe estimate.) I'm doing things now that seem like magic...and it's so simple!"

- Travis Pederson Cht., The Hypnotic Coach

"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, Record Producer & Business Owner (The Analogue Room)

"Brilliant! I noticed the difference immediately after the first session. The cravings were massively reduced in strength and only lasted a couple of seconds before disappearing. I also started to really enjoy the simple pleasures in life like enjoying the sun and taking walks with my family instead of wanting to smoke [crack]."

- Anonymous, Successful Business Owner (Crack Cocaine addiction - don't always believe the stereotypes!)

My changework business is going through the roof. Inspired by your 3 session model (I have done the same) I'm now working with 4 clients a day which is too much. So I'll have to raise my fee!

- Kasper Fredholm, Professional Hypnotist and Changework Practitioner, Denmark

"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, More Options Coaching

"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 and Hypnosis

"I thoroughly recommend spending some time in his (James Tripp's) 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."

- Anthony Jacquin, Consultant Hypnotist and author of Reality is Plastic: The Art of Impromptu Hypnosis

“Unlike some other coaches (and I know a lot), James 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.”
