Hello there:

Alister Bredee

My name is Alister Bredée and I live and work in Thailand. I qualified as a hypnotherapist 26 years ago. My word time does fly, doesn’t it? At the time I was living in Bahrain and really started my health care work there.

I moved to London and opened my first practice in London’s Kensington High Street in 1985 and later moved on to 31 Harley Street in 1987. However, I did have a problem and that was I just was not getting the results I sought. The techniques I knew could help 30% of those who came to see me, but no more. So I started a search for new and more improved tools and that search has taken me up to this day.

In 1986 I looked at Kinesiology with particular reference to allergies but then explored Kinesiology itself with a wonderful man called Brian Butler. 1987 was the time of Marietta Higgs and all that stuff. I trained in Primary Cause Analysis with Hypnosis, and became one of the few therapists outside of Australasia looking at the effects of sexual abuse on the adult psyche.

Anyway, I digress. In 1988 I attended a lecture on Electro-Magnetic Fields by Dr. Harry Howell and was so impressed I decided to study Holistic Medicine. I was one of the first batch of students at Howell College. Maybe, thought I the answers lie in the body and not the mind. But then we were all much more naive in the 80s. It was an interesting course of study, and I began to see the mind body connection beginning to emerge more clearly. In the meantime I had teamed up with London’s Capital Radio and we started doing “mass smoking cessation”, hypnosis sessions on “National No Smoking Day.” They lined up around Euston Tower and were squeezed into studios like sardines and amazingly it all seemed to have some effect. Capital did a follow up study in 1988 and found that 59% of the participants were still not smoking a year after the session. We continued with the Mass Hypnosis Sessions until 1990. In that year a young ex-Capital Radio DJ called Paul McKenna joined the project. Between us we had a mass hypnosis session of over 400 people in a Tottenham Court Road Night Club. The Guinness Book of Records refused to acknowledge this as a British record at the time, because they did not recognize hypnosis.

Anyway, in 1990 I moved to Dublin and commuted to London on a regular basis to attend Harry’s Courses at Regent’s College I received my qualification in “Holistic Health” and Clinical Nutrition in 1991 by this time Harry was working under the aegis of the amazing Dr., Sir Anton Jayasuriya and “Medicina Alternativa” in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The Course evolved in energy healing by means of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine as well as diet and nutrition, homeopathy, iridolology and Clinical Kinesiology

But still the search continued; it took me to NLP and later “Time Line Therapy”. I was much impressed by that and the work of Tad James, which was a very slick form of hypnosis that avoided the “H” word! In a matter of 4 or 5 sessions one could clear up the root cause and a whole host of negative emotions and limiting beliefs. About the same time I became a co-founder of a small holistic Centre called “Natural Solutions in Monkstown, Co. Dublin. Not only was this a venue from which to work but it afforded a place to teach and also bring in other teachers from around the world. In 1996 I met Dr. Roger Woolger, author of “Other Lives, Other Selves” and spent some time with him in Woodstock in upstate New York. Rob Jayne and later Mary Haskins led Past Life Workshops based on Roger’s work and this made possible two Teaching Seminars led by Roger himself in Ireland.

I started on the Reiki trail and became a Reiki Master in 1998 and spent time in Hawaii studying Hawaiian Huna with Tad James and Advanced Neuro Dynamics .I had also become a Member of the Council of Management of the Irish Association of Hypnotherapy/Hypnoanalysts. The organization has subsequently become the “Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy”.

Natural Solutions closed down at the end of 1998. 1999 was an “annus horriblis” for all sorts of reasons, which I won’t go into, but it all came right in the end and I moved to wondrous West Cork.

However, in the year 2000 I stumbled across another huge turning point, which I think is even more amazing than “Time Line Therapy” and that was TFT. Later I came across a simplified form that we know as EFT. I had a fair idea of how this all worked but went ahead and attended Tam Llewelyn-Edwards Training in Dublin which he along with Mary and others gave under the aegis of the Irish Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. I knew at once this was the way to go!

I introduced EFT to students on a “Timelining” training where we compared and contrasted the two different approaches. They all elected for EFT hands down and all went on to attend a later training in the Marino Institute in Dublin. I have had a look at other meridian psychotherapies such as BSFF and AFT and never cease to be so grateful they we have these wonderful tools to make out work even better. The instant form of BSFF is very similar to the Hawaiian Huna concept of giving commands to the Higher Self. I know Serge King talks about this and in 1999 I was fortunate enough to work with Ziggy Pracher, who teaches Higher Self Therapy in Austria.

In 2001, I attended Gary Craig’s Training Workshop in Flagstaff, Arizona. This took EFT to an entirely new dimension for me. Now I know all things are possible.

In August 2001 I was a delegate at the first Energy Psychology Conference in Fueringen, Switzerland. I returned to Ireland to begin writing, “Full Circle”, which outlines my own Meridian Therapy Protocol which I have called “AMBIT”. AMBIT stands for Alister’s Meridian Based Integrative Technique. I presented this at the second European Conference in Oxford in August 2002

Later I studied TAT, or the Tapas Acupressure Technique, based on work formulated by California acupuncturist Tapas Fleming, which is also amazingly powerful. I am now a TAT certified trainer and acted as co-host the first TAT European Conference held at Hellaby Hall in Yorkshire in 2004.

In 2003 I was invited by “Today’s Therapist” Magazine to act as their “EFT Expert”, and participated in their regular therapy roadshows thsat toured the UK introducing the British public to a wonderful assortment of complementary therapies.

Fruits in MarketIn 2005 I moved to Thailand, where I am now a therapist, trainer and the Administrator of the Thai Association for the Advancement of Meridian Techniques.

Thai AAMT teaches Meridian Therapies EFT at three levels. I invite you to join me for one of our trainings here in Thailand and in other parts of Asia. To keep abreast of events join the Thai AAMET group on Facebook.

In 2007 I moved to Koh Samui to work in the “Detox Industry”. From 2008 to 2010 I was Detox Manager and Wellness Consultant at “Absolute Sanctuary”. In April 2010 I left to become a partner in Health Ambit Consultancy. Health Ambit Consultancy is dedicated to good holistic health through the natural healing of body, mind and spirit.
