Ryan S Jenkins is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Change Consultant and Transformational Coach. A Member of the General Hypnotherapists Register (UK) and National Council of Hypnotherapists (UK), he offers solution-focused hypnotherapy and change coaching in Barcelona.
A U.S citizen born in the South Pacific country of Papua New Guinea to parents working in the medical field, his first experiences with non-traditional ways of healing came very early on in life when his Mother (famed anthropologist Dr. Carol Jenkins) discovered a “lost” indigenous tribe called the Hagahai people. Ryan witnessed first hand how the tribal healers used forms of Trance to heal people from diseases of the body and mind. This profoundly influenced the course of his life.
A “third culture kid”, he has lived all over the world in France, Bangladesh, Australia, The U.S.A, Cambodia, Thailand, The Netherlands and Spain.
While pursuing a career in the performing arts, he attended the Duke Ellington High School for the Arts in Washington D.C and later the Rotterdam Conservatory (CODARTS) in The Netherlands to study music. During a particularly stressful period in his studies, he injured his hand while performing. After a long period of attempting to heal the injury through more conventional therapies, he learned and applied self-hypnosis and almost instantly totally recovered his ability to play music.
This led to an intense fascination and deep study and practice of meditation and self-hypnosis, NLP, coaching, different psychological modalities and diverse fields of personal development. A certified Master Practitioner in Neuro-linguistic Programming, he has trained with, amongst others, Adam Eason (the UK´s leading evidence based hypnotherapist), Richard Bandler (co-founder of NLP) and Shinzen Young (American mindfulness teacher and neuroscience researcher).
His love of this field comes from the profound personal transformations he has experienced in his own life and those of his clients.
