IAEBP Council of Management
The IAEBP is run on a day-to-day basis by a Council of Management, whose Members are drawn from the Fellows of the Association.
Jonathan Manning FIAEBP
IAEBP Administrator and Council Chairman
Jonathan has an honours degree in psychology and has been in private practice for over 20 years. As our representative, he was involved in constructive talks with the Dept. of Health about establishing a national regulator for hypnotherapy and was part of the team that wrote the first National Occupational Standards for hypnotherapy and acted as consultant later in the process of their proposed implementation. More recently he has taken part in the consultation process to explore a Federal Approach to Voluntary Self-Regulation and remains the IAEBP authority on regulatory matters. Jonathan has been a member of the council of management since 1998 and organised the national conferences from 1999 to 2004. He was awarded his Fellowship in 2001 for services to the profession. He is also the IAEBP Administrator. Apart from running two busy practices, Jonathan has many other interests. He runs a championship-winning classic rally car, having previously participated in motorcycle rallies on the continent. He is a keen student of architecture and design, especially garden design, his own garden being an oasis of calm and tranquility in a busy city. Jonathan is also chairman of the Thailand Philatelic Society, a position that takes him to many countries visiting exhibitions and fellow enthusiasts. For exercise, Jonathan lists dancing and coastal walks but assures us not in the Singing Butler style of Jack Vettriano. Email. Website
Karen Lally FIAEBP
Karen has been in full time private practice in Cheshire since 1993. She has treated many hundreds of clients from both the UK and abroad and her specialist area lies with her expert use of the original Neil French Therapy techniques. Karen was made a Fellow at the Conference in 2004. Karen has trained at an advanced level, she is a Clinical Supervisor and a Training Analyst and has taken many newly qualified therapists successfully through their own Personal Therapy. She is also well known to her local GPs and doctor’s surgeries, who regularly recommend clients to her for both emotional and psychological problems and suggestion therapy. Karen moved from Lincolnshire to Winsford, Cheshire in 1990, with her son Robert. Karen’s knowledge of hypnosis originated in 1989, through her father Martin Lally, who was a fully qualified member of the International Association of Hypnoanalysts. Martin passed away in May 1992 and this is what motivated Karen to become fully qualified and follow in her father’s footsteps.

Philip Blake FIAEBP

He is particularly interested in interventions connected to the area of childhood and adult trauma. Since qualifying as a therapist with HCB, Philip has continued his professional development with the Central School of Counselling and Therapy where he trained and qualified as a counselor. He has also passed the Advanced Diploma with the IAEBP and additionally received training in areas such as working with young people with problems such as autism and attention deficit disorder.
