About Ryan Simbai Jenkins
Ryan was born and raised in Papua New Guinea to a medical anthropologist mother and professional musician and photographer father. He a U.S citizen but has lived in France, Bangladesh, Australia, The U.S.A, Cambodia, Thailand and The Netherlands and Spain
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 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.
His love of this field comes from the profound personal transformations he has experienced in his own life and those of his clients.
He currently runs a hypnotherapy/change work practice in Barcelona Spain where he has lived for the last 7 years and is explores the boundaries of performance, therapy and coaching with people from all walks of life.
