Frank Farrelly: “Live from NY” as video download or stream


Provocative Therapy is an amazingly  effective form of brief therapy  created by  Frank Farrelly.  Frank’s unique way of interacting  with people  creates powerful change coming from the inside  of the client themselves. Watching Frank in action it is easy to see why Richard Bandler was so inspired by  his work and to see how very much of the work made its way into NLP.   Now, these videos put you virtually in the seminar room to witness magic in action.


Who is Frank Farrelly and what is “Provocative Therapy?”

Frank Farrelly is the creator of “Provocative Therapy” and the author of the book with the same name, first published in the 1970s.  I first read  it in 1986 when I was first learning NLP and was blown away. His influence on the field of NLP was easy to see in the pages of that book.

Back in 2006, thanks to Nick Kemp’s influence, I was amazed to discover that not only was Frank Farrelly alive and well, but he continued to run seminars, which were mostly held in Europe.

So, with Nick’s help, I arranged to have Frank come to New York and present  a weekend seminar on Provocative Therapy. These videos are the record of that event. They  were filmed with two cameras and were beautifully edited for ease of viewing.

Six videos

The six videos contain nine client interviews including Frank working with a married couple. They also contain two 1-hour talks Frank gave at the start of each day of the two-day seminar, discussing Provocative Therapy, the early days with Bandler and Grinder and much more.

The price of the two day training was $695.00. These videos capture every moment of the seminar for your repeated viewings, and are yours to download or stream (or both) for only $295.00.

Your Personal Invitation To Witness Magic In Action

Frank Farrelly was described by one of his clients as ‘The kindest, most understanding man I have ever met in my whole life, wrapped up in the biggest son of a bitch I have ever met.’

You have to see it to believe it. These videos allow you to do just that.

When you purchase this set you will be sent the link to the set of videos on Vimeo and the private pass word to access them.


“Frank Farrelly. . .is a really exquisite example of requisite variety.”

— Richard Bandler and John Grinder, Frogs Into Princes.

“Frank Farrelly. . .must be thought of with respect (perhaps even delight?) by his clients who have so far played the game of therapy with their therapists, but, I am afraid, also a shocking example for those therapists who, in Laing’s words, ‘are playing at not playing a game’.”

— Paul Watzlawick, Ph.D., Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, CA .

“Frank Farrelly? Impertinent, but penetratingly pertinent.”

— Arthur M. Bodin, Ph.D., Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, CA .

Frank deliberately pushes peoples buttons. His shocking style forces his clients to confront reality and learn to appreciate and accept it. Clients learn to laugh at themselves, at their problem and move on to problem solving.
