GG Frantz: Why did I join Bentley Wellness?
Updated: Jan 31, 2019
"My Voice Will Go With You" (Well not mine, but Nev's sure will)
On more than one occasion have I been asked by puzzled faces: "Why did you join Nev?"
True, his hair is messy. He doesn't shave. He wears his cap backwards and features on live videos wearing a singlet.
Some background about me...
I was part of a religious organisation for 26 years where I preached from the pulpit that; “Hypnosis is of the devil!” So, how the heck would I join an association which embodies the exact belief I used to denounce?
I first met Nev Bentley during advanced studies of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnosis Training in Sydney 2017. After watching Nev on several occasions utilising the wonderful modalities of Hypnosis and witnessing the amazing many ‘miracles’ of emotional and spiritual healings in clients, I deep down knew that we share the same belief about changing lives.
Watching Nev’s ability and passion to help clients getting rid of anxiety, quit smoking, loosing weight, gaining self-confidence, and assisting them to reach their desired goals has humbled me when being approached of becoming an associate partner of BENTLEY WELLNESS.
I have watched Nev over the last couple of years now and recently told him that he embodies the modalities of Hypnosis and brings them alive and this was the very first reason I connected with him back in Sydney. Looking at his track record of success, I realised, "this guys business is going to be successful regardless if I join him or not. I might as well join him!" Clean shaven face, or 5PM shadow. Hat backwards or messy hair. Singlet or a suit. It doesn't matter; Nev is getting results and clients are drawn to him.
Nev and I share a similar background in faith and spirituality. Though, moving forward from those days, each one of us brings to the table a set of unique knowledge and experiences that alone we couldn’t master. My story is one of a strong family foundation that turned sour when it should have soared through a love of God and family.
I became part of a cult, a Christian religious sect that should have elevated my life and that of my family, but instead, I suffered twenty years of mental and sexual abuse. Looking back, perhaps this experience offered the lessons I needed to learn so that I could help others rid themselves of negative emotions, the destructive mindset that we all encounter in our lives at one time or another.
Let’s face it, everyone hopes they’ll avoid the worst life has to offer; accidents, illness, loss or violence etc. Unfortunately, few of us will get through life unscathed and the earlier we realise that we are not the only ones who have suffered the sooner we will be able to move on from our upsetting past.
As for me, emerging on the other side of the pain, I feel a much greater inner strength and have re-oriented my life towards more fulfilling goals. Actually the suffering that resulted from those horrible experiences was not an endpoint. Instead it acted more as a catalyst to change for the better in all aspects of life.
Probably it has sent me on a quest I would never have found otherwise. Given the right mindset and environment I was able to reflect on the trauma, the suffering and struggle as an opportunity to search for meaning in my life. Ultimately to become a better version of myself because growth begins with healing from the suffering experienced.
I do give credit to the transformational therapy of Time Line Therapy® turning my life around. Your “Time Line” is how you unconsciously store your memories or how you unconsciously know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Behavioural change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. We don’t change consciously. The Time Line Therapy® techniques allowed me to work at the unconscious level and I released the effects of past negative experiences and changed my misguided mind programming in minutes - rather than days, months or years.
Knowing that BENTLEY WELLNESS and I share the same belief about changing lives and possess the tools to bless other people and therefore I am humbled to share this journey together.
Aside from this, Nev and his family have been wonderful friends. We’ve shared laughs, meals, drinks and jokes. This will be a partnership and friendship for decades to come as we set forth to “heal the world.”

Words From Nev
As soon as I met GG I knew we were both "brothers on the path!" As he said, we grew up with similar religious beliefs and practises. I do want to stress that Bentley Wellness, and the modalities we teach are completely secular. In no way do we preach about God and we don't encourage anyone to accept any new beliefs surrounding religion. We live by the rules of NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnotherapy. These modalities will make you realise the inherent "God" power that you have within yourself - not outside yourself. I've been fortunate enough to grow up without excessive turmoil in my life. I had depression and anxiety, but I did not suffer severe abuse like GG and so many clients I've consulted. The wonderful thing about having GG on board, is he will be able to connect with all of our future clients who have suffered abuse. He serves as a beacon of hope for those who are searching for their ultimate healing. If GG can heal, anyone can heal. One of the problems with psychological disorders these days, especially if people are long time sufferers, is they have to accept some rules about healing (in NLP) that initially seem counter-productive. There are some bitter pills to swallow; but in truth, they're just ways of thinking. But, like GG, if you adopt these ways of thinking... a new and a better world will reveal itself to you. GG is the happiest man I've ever met. Unless he told you about his past - you would never even know there was over 20 years of abuse present in his history. I welcome you to take the same step!
