Felix Economats – 4Rs Model
Meet Felix Economakis
Felix is a chartered psychologist, clinical hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. He has demonstrated amazing results using his 4R’s model with hyper-phobics on BBC3’s “The Panic Room”, as well as on the TV show “Freaky Eaters”.
Felix believes in leading by example so in the course of his TV work he has walked over burning coals, jumped out of a plane, broken through a 2 inch wooden board with the palm of his hand, and held all manner of tarantulas, snakes and giant hissing cockroaches to illustrate how we can all learn to manage our anxiety.
Asides from these more dramatic displays of therapy for fears and phobias, Felix has been interviewed on radio and has dozens of articles on the most common psychological conditions affecting modern society: chronic anxiety, stress, depression, addictions, relationship conflicts and the feeling that something is missing is life. (Images are stills taken from “The Wright Stuff” And BBC Beyond 100 Days)
He remains passionate about promoting the benefits of modern integrative therapy in all these areas and has written a book on how the relationship between the conscious and unconscious mind determines our emotional and mental health.
SO WHAT IS THE ‘4Rs MODEL’?
Imagine you knew how to sequence your sessions in way that helped the client to create change… without the need to formally hypnotise them?
Imagine a ‘cut to the chase’ therapy that moves the client away from ‘intellectually talking about the issue’ but instead helps the client get to the crux of the real problem almost immediately.
What if helping the client change were as simple as checking off a number of boxes in their mind… and… once they were ticked… the results appeared… regardless of whether hypnosis had happened!
This is what the 4R’s are all about!
Rapport, Reconciliation, Responsibility & Rewire.
In it’s simplest form… this is a complete framework you can apply to your client sessions that WILL take your results to the next level.
A premier framework for phobias, trauma and anxiety based issues… that is ALSO applicable to other approaches!
Tried, tested and then refined over 20 years, the 4R’s model is the reason why Felix is the most sought after change-worker for dealing with Selective Eating Disorder (Now known as ARFID) and has literally helped well over 2500 change their patterns of behaviour.
This is a well honed complete framework and he is ready to share it with you!
My name is Howard Cooper and I’m the founder of Rapid ChangeWorks… and for well over 2 years I have been interviewing leading therapists and ‘agents of change’ (exploring the theme that rapid change is possible) as part of a growing podcast that has now had over 25,000 people tune in!
Why am I passionate about getting Felix’s model out?
The very first interview I ever recorded as part of this project was with FELIX ECONOMAKIS (following which he kindly introduced me to a number of other potential podcast guests and so the podcast was born.)
As a thank you (for helping me get this project started), I offered to take him out for a meal, and he graciously accepted.
Over dinner we ‘hit it off’ and got chatting about all things change… (I myself have been working for over 15 years helping people to create rapid shifts in their thinking too).
Anyway, half way through dinner I said to him…
“So tell me Felix, give me the detail… what are you actually doing with people that’s generating these consistently good results?”
He leaned forwards and replied…
“Well I like you Howard… and there IS A SECRET… a kind of process that I have refined that I haven’t come across or seen done anywhere else… BUT if I’m honest… I’m just not ready to share yet.”
SERIOUSLY!!! Can you imagine how I felt? I’m about to receive the “golden information” only to be left with nothing!
Cutting a long story short… we became good friends but it was another 2 years before I finally learnt the secret (whilst filming some live demos as part of an online training I was helping him put together).
So what was this SECRET formula?
Well it was the 4Rs. Essentially his secret is his entire model of change (from the moment the client enters to the moment they leave with the result AND often WITHOUT any formal “close your eyes” hypnosis.)
If I’m totally honest… my response on seeing it in action (after almost 2 years of waiting) was one of UNDERWHELM!
I had been gearing up to see the MAGIC SECRET… see the LIGHTENING shoot from his eyes… THE BOLTS OF POWER emanating… but INSTEAD what I saw was something that didn’t seem like magic…
In fact, seemed entirely learnable, seemed almost sequenced, processed and replicable!
HOWEVER, never the less… it seemed to yield staggering results
After learning the 4Rs it became a mainstay of my client work and to this day continues to surprise me with how easy it is to use, how flexible it is… AND how great the results are.
HOWEVER, the delivery and the framework are underwhelming. SO if you are the sort of change-worker that wants to BEND someone to your will… demonstrate the latest POWER trance or have them thinking that YOU have magic powers and can MAKE them change… then this is NOT for you!
However, if you are serious change-worker… wanting to increase your client effectiveness… without the need for EGO… then KEEP READING!
Let me share with you a testimonial I got after I used the 4Rs with an 11 year old emetophobic. The father wrote this…
It’s hard to believe the change in my 11 year old son after seeing Howard. After many years of suffering from an extreme vomit phobia he now no longer gives it a second thought. The methods Howard uses are relaxed, offbeat and funny, so much so that you find it hard to believe they will have any effect! Nevertheless my sons mental wellbeing has dramatically improved to the point where he can enjoy life as any child should without the burden of that worry. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Howard. Carl, Hertfordshire
I love the line where he says… “the methods are relaxed, offbeat and funny… so much so that you find it hard to believe they will have any effect!”
I hear this kind of thing I hear all the time! This is the power of the 4Rs!
Imagine regularly receiving testimonials like this… Imagine being able to help more people… Imagine what effect that could have on your business and client numbers?
NO!!! It’s NOT JUST ‘another protocol!’
How many times have you have seen a NEW training in the world of hypnosis or NLP purporting to give you a “new” protocol, a “new” technique or a “new” method?
And they use the phrase, “Another tool for the toolbox”?
And maybe if it’s good “tool” you use it a few times after with real clients… BUT… it’s still a JUST ONE TOOL…
So many people end up being let loose after a bunch of training with a bunch of different tools… BUT still NOT sure what to say to a real client when they first walk in… OR how to sequence these tools, techniques and protocols in order to maximise results.
OR they are managing ok… BUT things “swerve of course” when someone seems resistant, doesn’t want to close their eyes or simply seems unresponsive.
What if, instead of giving you another tool for the toolbox… we gave you the WHOLE toolbox along with transcripts and details of what order to use everything in from start to finish?
What Felix wants to share with you GOES BEYOND a mere protocol or another technique…
It’s EVERYTHING he does from the moment the client walks in all the way through to them leaving the session HAPPY with the result.
Effective with the engaged client who WANTS a change… but also equally applicable to the stroppy unengaged teenager who is sitting with their arms folded being “unresponsive”.
This is NOT about giving you one more protocol and creating a tribe of sycophantic protocol pushers lauding this “new thing” as the panacea for all ails! It is about sharing with a respectful and select group of responsible and serious change-workers an entire process for change that will not only transform their clients lives BUT potentially their business lives as a change-worker by helping people consistently deliver results.
What Can I Expect When I Invest In “The 4Rs Training Programme”?
How many times have you been on a training day, but the moment you leave you are “on your own”?
This is more than a mere 2-day live training. This is EVERYTHING you need to hone an approach that will lead to extraordinary results for your clients.
You investment includes, but is not limited too:
2-Days LIVE Training
Spend 2-days amongst a group of other serious change-workers learning Felix Economakis’ entire system.
Live Demos – REAL Clients
Many trainings use audience members as demos and whilst this will happen too (a valid teaching tool) we are ALSO aware that sometimes people who have paid to be there have an invested interest in the “system” working. However, we are also arranging for a number of REAL clients who have NEVER met Felix to attend (and are NOT invested change-workers) for you to see Felix in action.
Hand’s on Support
Through exercises and practice. Felix will guide and give you hand’s on support in applying the 4Rs model.
Takeaway an entire 20+page script of every metaphor, sequence, process, strategy that Felix employs when running this 4Rs model! EVEN just this alone is worth the price of admission!
Private Access to Ongoing Support Group
Following the training, become part of an elite private facebook group for ONLY people who are part of this programme to ask, discuss, share and get further support from Felix on an ongoing basis following the training.
INCLUDED: Full Access to Online 4Rs Training
All the concepts broken down, Live demo’s filmed with accompanying detailed breakdowns, downloadable resources, areas to leave comments and discuss with fellow trainees. Everything you need to master and hone this way of working EVEN after the 2 live training days.
Follow up LIVE Webinar
2 months following the live days, Felix will host a digital training session to make sure you have the support you need to keep this on track. Essentially it’s an opportunity for Felix to help you guide around any issues or difficulties that may have emerged in actually USING the system.
10 Hours CPD
In addition because of the calibre of the training and the material covered, attending the two day training entitles the trainee to 10 hours of CPD validated by the Very Brief Therapy Foundation which is signed off on by Professor Windy Dryden.
Limited SPACES! Ensure maximum tailored training experience
This is NOT a “fill the room with 100’s of people” event. This is deliberately only going to be available to a handful of people so that Felix can manage the learning experience so that YOU can get maximum benefit.
