Andrew is the rarest type of teacher: he knows how to get you real results, and he genuinely cares about the people he works with. If you get a chance to work with him, take it.
Riley Holland, Head Coach, NRW
I have had the pleasure of working with Andrew for some time now. I choose the word “with” advisedly. No matter the project or nature of the interaction, I feel like I am working with someone that is actively investing themselves into the process. A kind of solidity of character that is perhaps a bit too rare in some circles. I think this is just part of his basic nature. But, I also suspect that this is in part because he brings alot to the table. Even after the many projects we have worked on, periodically a nook or cranny of background is revealed that further impresses me.
I have done tension releasing bodywork for years, guided by several experts, and also by amateur friends. I can tell the difference, and Andrew is definitely an expert. He has his own unique approach, and I enjoy his calm and gentle guiding voice.
I would definitely recommend sessions with Andrew. I’ve worked with him both when I was first starting in this work as a beginner and now with more experience. Andrew is able to communicate on a deep level both before and during sessions in a way that makes one feel the guidance they are getting is invaluable. He asks a lot of questions to really find out areas you’d like to work on.
There is an authenticity to the sessions that make them very potent. The post-session reverberations will deepen with time, if you let them. I really like Andrew’s guidance, as it seems like I could go deeper and be more relaxed without having to think about what’s coming next. I felt a deep sense of relaxation and an expanded perception of myself and the immediate surroundings.
I learned some new exercises, and discovered that the bodywork is even more powerful when you have an experienced guide – it can go to another level.
Andrew effortlessly clears away the bullshit in a profound way. I always feel energized and relieved after working with him. Andrew made me realize just how valuable my time is, and that I can boldly follow my own projects.
Yesterday yielded the most powerful results I’ve had in one of our sessions. Those periods of disappearing yielded deep refreshment and then I slept for 10 hours, through an alarm, and I woke up very nourished. Deep timeless dreamless sleep. So thanks!
This is fucking fantastic. It complements everything else I’m doing in a profound way. Again and again much much gratitude comes to my mind and my heart. You guided me to so many openings yesterday. It’s a pleasure working with you. Every time I’m blown away some more.
That last piece we did was quite interesting. The result was pure sensation—no seeing, no hearing, no smelling, no tasting, no touching. No thinking either. Just sort of floating sensation—no body, no mind. Interestingly, my FitBit recorded that I was in some form of sleep mode, yet there seemed to be perfect awareness.
I just listened to the recording you made on Dec 23… I am open and relaxed and seeing what is. Experiencing the exteriors and the interiors simultaneously. A unified, embodied sensing and feeling. Reporting without an agenda or a belief system. How liberating and how ordinary. And it has ALWAYS been like this. I was indoctrinated not to see things as they are, but to see according to a strict set of rules about the nature of reality handed down from some very ignorant (and now not too convincing) group of monkeys. Rules that now bore the shit out me.
It’s like someone gave me a head transplant.
I’ve had a number of sessions guided by Andrew. He has consistently proven to be extremely attentive, and skilled in creating a space conducive to my own self transformation. His care for his clients is not only embodied skillfully, but is truly genuine and compassionate. Some common side effects of working with Andrew are an increase in clarity and heightened sense of well-being.
There often seems a sense of trepidation and excitement at the start of sessions, like the feeling of looking into the entrance to a cave, knowing you are about to step in.
I would recommend sessions with Andrew. I felt comfortable following his directions and I could sense the attention and care he brought to it. There was an atmosphere of being partners in a fun process of exploration.
I found that my breathing became more open, and my chest freer in its movements. Tension which I had been aware of in the back of my head seems to have dissolved. Constriction in the base of my neck released.
The experience gave me new direct knowledge of my body – it provoked a communication with a physical intelligence in me. Afterwards I felt more aware and present, and at the same time more objective. I felt calm and relaxed.
Even years later I can still feel the moment in the first session Andrew gave me when I realised I had been holding my breath, and not fully exhaling, for essentially my entire life up to that point. This physical revelation has had profound and lasting benefits.
I have worked with Andrew over a couple of years and he has been professional, insightful, intuitive and supportive, whilst assisting me though some difficult personal experiences during sessions. His understanding of ‘the bodywork’ comes from his own unique experience of going through it himself, rather than some theoretical book learning, foo-foo ‘new-age’ language and bluff. I say “teach what you know”; Andrew knows it, because he’s actually done it. Highly recommended.
Andrew is a skilled and knowledgeable professional whose work has been absolutely integral to my own. His ability to clarify and bring focus to what gets me results is invaluable. He offers bold, insightful, compassionate, and succinct prescriptions for navigating myself to the path of healing and realizing the wholeness of who I am, and what I do. As a result of the work Andrew exercises with me on an ongoing basis, not only do I benefit from a more harmonious work/life balance, but I continue to grow into more elevated realizations of my self, and of my own spiritual potency.
Andrew Bishop is an experienced practitioner in the Radical Undoing bodywork. His years of practice in this and other techniques of self-work makes him the ideal choice. A bodywork session given by Andrew Bishop is something I would highly recommend, both for beginners and for experienced practitioners.
My experience of having a session led by Andrew was great, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in feeling more relaxed and exploring more of themselves. The relaxation and energy coming from a session like this has to be experienced to be believed. After the session I had a great feeling of relaxation and calm, combined with more power in my body.
Andrew coached me through the session in a clear and understandable way, and I think many people, especially those new to the bodywork, can benefit from that.
Some of the exercises Andrew led me through called forth feelings from the depth of my childhood, some of which have gone ignored for a long time. Having these feelings brought to the surface helps me in understanding my own role as a parent and as child of my own parents, something which is essential in my work on self.
All in all, I got a great deal out of the session, both in the form of the psychological clarity and from the fantastic feeling I had after the session was over: a feeling of being alive and vibrant, while calm at the same time.
After my session with Andrew I felt like a cloth that had been wrung out.
Andrew Bishop is one to watch when it comes to bodywork and the teaching in general. He is fiercely perceptive and adaptive to the individual. Andrew’s innate ability to transform the human apparatus is second to none.
You did an excellent job of setting the mood and atmosphere. Thank you for the great class you directed… Very nicely done.
I have been noticing less tension in my neck, shoulders and face… I found a few opportunities to repeat the first three exercises and have received a tremendous amount of mileage from them.
The breathing seems to have shaken things up and the exercises put me into an altered state of consciousness. When tension is released from the body there seems to be an increased amount of presence. The residual effects are definitely quite usable and support my practice of self-observation.
Andrew is intelligent, friendly and exudes an energy of reassuring calm. It was a pleasure to take part in the group activity that he conducted; it was an enlightening experience that I remember with fondness. I highly recommend him as a workshop leader as he lives and feels what he teaches.
Ten breaths made me feel totally rejuvenated. I wouldn’t have believed it at the beginning.
