OUTthink – Polly Filla – The Psychology of Drag

By | LGBTQI, OUTthink, Podcast | No Comments

OUTthink – Polly Filla – The Psychology of Drag What prompts a gay man to become a drag queen? Or, for that matter, a lesbian to become a drag king? Is it performance art? Is it a psychological mask? Is it a creation of ‘someone more fabulous’, aimimng to reach more visually for the ‘ideal self’? Love them or hate them, drag queens and kings are often seen as the face of the gay community. They’re highly visual and recognisable, whereas many gay men will go through life not being ‘obvious’. You could see them as the court jester or as some form of demi-god; the reality is that, when in drag, another version of their self comes forward and they can often get away with so much more than they would out of drag. You also need to consider those drag performers who have been almost covert in their activism. Legendary Melbourne performer Kerrie Le Gore was instrumental in bringing the Safe Sex message to the Melbourne community when it desperately needed. A little while back, I wrote an article on the psychology of drag and I thought it might be interesting to turn the topic into an OUTthink…

Book Review: ‘Daring Greatly’

By | Shame | No Comments

Book Review ‘Daring Greatly – How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead.’ Brene Brown Over the past year, I have spent a lot of time researching the topic of shame and vulnerability. It is a curious topic; the more I dig beneath the surface, the more I become completely fascinated and consumed by it and the more I recognize it every day in day to day situations. It was also one of the reasons why I had my own new year’s resolution around being more authentic in my day to day transactions, which would mean digging deep into my personal values and then living by them, no matter what kind of confrontation or awkwardness it may present. I can assure you now, it is harder than it sounds and it can often take a lot of courage to live authentically. I readily admit, there are times where I simply fail. Shame and vulnerability ‘Daring Greatly’ is a book that really delves into the topics of shame and vulnerability. It is a book so full of ‘aha’ moments that you could read it now, feel inspired, read it again in 12 months and…

Tips To Help You Create Your Own Hypnosis Audio Product

By | Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Recording | No Comments

Tips To Help You Create Your Own Hypnosis Audio Product One of the easiest ways a hypnotherapist can create a passive revenue stream is to sell content online. Whether it be an individual, self-contained sessions or a program that consists of modules and a recording for each, you can set up a website and automate the process so that you’re (literally) making money in your sleep. While it might seem daunting for many hypnotherapists to do that, armed with a few skills and some creativity, you could be online with your recordings, helping people make meaningful changes in their lives and making money on a global market quickly and easily. There are other benefits from having your sessions available online too. Many people will happily consider ‘giving you a try’ for $10+ and exploring what you can do via a recording before they consider paying out $150+ for a one-on-one session or $500+ for a program. Here are some tips that can help you to create your online products quickly and easily. Using yourself as inspiration There are many hypnotherapists out there who believe that they should be recording everything. Whether it be to listen back to your session to…

By | Recording | No Comments

‘Recording for Hypnotherapists Workshop’ Heads Down To Frankston After running eight successful workshops in the past 12 months, the ‘Recording for Hypnotherapist Workshop’ is heading down to the South East Suburbs and coming to ‘The Garden’. This is a slightly revised and added version to the workshops that ran last year, although the intention is to still keep them small, intimate, hands on, and PACKED full of information. This workshop will teach you how to get the best possible results using the equipment that you already have. By the end of this workshop, you’ll know how to record and edit your scripts, how to work with effects to clean up and enhance your recordings, to add a musical or binaural beat backing, and how to export it so that you can distribute it to your clients. “Tks Lawrence Akers, great workshop, I haven’t had chance to look at anything yet however I am excited to play with it all, hopefully over the weekend.

Release Hypnosis’s Lawrence Akers on JOY FM

By | Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, LGBTQI, OUTthink, Podcast | No Comments

Release Hypnosis’s Lawrence Akers on JOY FM Many years ago… in fact, back in my 20s, I used to have a radio show on JOY FM. It wasn’t much of a success. To be honest, I think I look back and even cringe a little. It was, however, at a time when both JOY FM and I personally were finding our feet. Twenty years on and I like to think we’re both a little older, wiser, and far more professional. After recently appearing on an episode of OUTthink, Dean Beck very kindly returned the favour and asked me to come in and do an episode of JOY FM’s highly rating Wednesday night show ‘Hide and Seek’. Despite trying to conceal a hideous cold, I made my way into the studio. Hoping that the cold and flu tablets were not going to reduce my to a rambling mess (yes, they were original recipe on demand so that I could actually breath properly!), I had to admit that Dean and Ben made it a really enjoyable experience. I know I walked out afterwards thinking that it really didn’t feel like an hour and that there were some questions that we began to…
