NLP Training New York

About Us

Shawn Carson
Born in Lacashire, England, I moved to New York City in 1996. Since then, as an ‘Englishman in New York’, I have lived, loved, worked and taught in Manhattan.

Since childhood, I have been fascinated with the Mind. I began to study the application of NLP to sales and management in 1994. Since that time, my interest has grown and I have become a Master Practitioner and Trainer in NLP and Hypnosis Trainer, as well as seeing private clients. In addition I am a Clean Language Facilitator, Reiki Master and practitioner of EFT.

I began to teach NLP and Hypnosis in 2006 and opened the doors of our training and coaching business, IPH, in 2007.

Teaching and helping others in NLP and Hypnosis helps me to understand myself better. After all, at heart we all share the same fears, hopes, dreams.

  • Shawn began teaching NLP and Hypnosis in 2006 after completing a highly successful career in business consulting, including serving on the Board of Directors of a major international consulting organization. His experience in Business Consulting and consultative sales perfectly suits him to understand the needs of clients and students from the business world.
  • Shawn teaches our three levels of NLP (Practitioner, Master Practitioner, and Advanced Master Practitioner), as well as our Conversational Hypnosis Professional Hypnotherapist, and other hypnosis courses. In addition he teaches business influence courses and a variety of workshops corresponding to his interests.

I am a Certified (H)NLP Trainer, Certified Conversational Hypnosis Trainer,  Consulting Hypnotist and Co-Founder and Director of The International Center for Positive Change and Hypnosis.

For many years I have been passionate about understanding how the mind works and my journey has taken my primarily into the world of NLP and Hypnosis. These two areas of study continue to fascinate me and I am always eager to learn more and to share what I learn.

During my own personal journey I discovered just how powerful the mind is and more I learned the more I wanted to know.  Along the way I also experienced my own personal transformations. These experiences convinced me that NLP and Hypnosis truly work for positive change. I became an NLP Trainer and Conversational Hypnosis trainer with the express goal of share my understandings and learnings with as many people as possible, to help them change their own lives and transform the lives of others.

At The International Center for Positive Change and Hypnosis in New York City I teach NLP and Hypnosis Training Courses and also hold private consultations for individual personal transformation.

For me, this is not just a job, it is a passion, a way of life and I am dedicated to helping others learn the skills to transform their lives and live their dreams.

Hypnosis has been a life long passion for me.  Ever since I was young I had a deep curiosity for how the mind works.  I can still remember the first time I saw a hypnotist on T.V. who helped someone change their life, I was both amazed and hooked!  Since then I have been on an incredible journey.   

In 2010 I opened Philadelphia Hypnosis where I still see clients during the week.  In 2012 I partnered with Sarah and Shawn Carson and am now a trainer at the International Center for Positive Change and Hypnosis.  In addition to the NLP trainings and advanced workshops we offer, we are 3 of only 25 people world wide certified to teach Igor Ledochowski's Conversational Hypnosis Professional Hypnotherapy Certification Program.  

I am also the co-author of "Quit: The Hypnotist's Handbook To Running Effective Stop Smoking Sessions", "The Power of Hypnotic Influence", "The Swish", and "The Visual Squash".  

Outside of the hypnosis world I was a university professor for 7 years in the fields of comparative religions and anthropology.  Currently along with teaching NLP and Hypnosis I am also pursuing my interests in corporate trainings.
