Nik and Eva Speakman have studied and worked together since 1992, both sharing an uncontainable passion to help people lead happier and less inhibited lives. Studying psychologists and in particular, the work of Ivan Pavlov, John Watson, Jean Piaget, Albert Bandura, Lev Vygotsky and B.F. Skinner, they acquired an intellectual curiosity for behaviourism and behavioural conditioning. After many remarkable breakthroughs, their studies transformed into the creation of their own behavioural change therapy known as ‘Schema Conditioning.’® They also created a further exceptional trauma-based therapy, ‘Visual Schema Displacement.’®
As well as members of the public, the couple work with, and have treated many high profile clients around the world and have had countless successes. They are resident therapists on ITV’s multi award-winning ‘This Morning’ and they have had their own shows, one of which, ‘The Speakmans’, also aired on ITV. They have also appeared on numerous other television shows such as the award-winning Saturday Night Takeaway, as expert contributors.
Since 2015 Nik and Eva have been working with psychology professors at Universities in Amsterdam and Utrecht who are conducting scientific studies into the workings of their therapy and the scientific papers proving its remarkable efficacy in the first two scientific studies was published in June 2019. The third study with a significantly larger study is underway and the fourth multiple baseline study with trauma patients is now also underway and will be completed by the end of 2020.
Nik and Eva help people through many mediums including live workshops, tours, books, radio and television. At the heart of all of their plans lies a relentless mission to assist as many people as possible to overcome their issues, and to help them to improve the quality of their lives.
