Newcastle NLP Practitioner Training August 2015

Just under 14  years ago in 2001 years ago I attended an NLP Introduction training, over the next three years I was so attracted to the results of this personal exploration of how I could change my thoughts, behaviours and shape more of the kind of future I wanted, NLP turned into my professional career.

From very early on in my explorations of NLP, I discovered that using the NLP process helped me realise my deeper personal freedom. I mean freedom to radically alter my thoughts and responses to different situations. Which means having massive influence on what I feel and what I choose to do.

Course Graduates April 2014

The application of NLP, fuelled and ultimately changed many aspects of how I live and how I act in, and perceive life. The process orientated and experiential ways of being, from an NLP Practitioner training and onwards, gradually filtered through my old conditioning.

You can read about how using NLP I went form a job I hated to a purposeful career.

As old conditionings dropped away my life opened up to new dimensions of living and ways of experiencing life in positively new and different ways; and  in ways I doubt I would have not experienced without my NLP journey.

Personal freedom is available to everyone yet most people like myself need to be shown the tools to make it happen. The tools to learn to change habitual negative thinking patterns into more useful ones. The tools to change aspects of old beliefs into empowering ones.

Yet NLP will not change you at all. Your personal development requires your active participation. Your use of and reflection with NLP patterns and process will give you the tools and techniques to change yourself. As it were to update your operating systems with practice, over time.

NLP can have a particularly powerful effect on how we communicate. Generally NLP Practitioners become more congruent and understanding of others as well as themselves. This tends to increase our effectiveness in the world.

Who This NLP Practitioner Course Will Benefit – People Desiring to :

  • Develop more effective communication skills
  • Strengthen emotional resilience
  • Enhance employment prospects
  • Learn Coaching and Therapeutic Practices
  • Become more effective students of life

The NLP training is experiential in nature so there are no exams, tests or death by powerpoint. Exercises and developmental integration of skills is at the heart of learning and utilising NLP to grow and develop and in ways update and enhance who you are and what you do. I feel this is a key to personal freedom.

NLP Newcastle a New Year Revolution for Your 2015

Before I share some thoughts and ideas about your New Year resolutions I am going to share a story with you. If you require the dates and cost of the January 2015 18 day NLP Practitioner training, that’s all at the end of this post.

When I was about fifteen I had an experience that is common to practically everybody I know.

Me and a friend had been watching the film Nightmare on Elm Street at his parents house. It was as I remember very very scary. When it came to 10pm I was making my way home and it was dark winter night where the wind was blowing through the hedges and trees.

NLP Newcastle

Karen Testimonial

As the wind blew low clouds across an almost full moon, little noises made my hairs stand on end and for the whole of that terrifying five minute walk that became a run home, my imagination created horrendous scenarios about what could happen that were far more frightening to me that the film I had just watched. But lets get back to the New Year resolutions for a while.

Many people are making New Year resolutions. These wonderful ideas are generally the kind of things that should improve your life, happiness and perhaps drop a waist size or two.

Sometimes and rightly so the New Year resolutions are to stop doing things that cause emotional pain or are in some ways not entirely healthy. These could be to worry less, live with less fear and anxiety or to cut down on alcohol and red meat.

All of these are in essence great ways to begin a new fresh year. Making the changes that we believe will make a real difference in both who we are and how we show up in the world day in and day out.

If you consider that all resolutions are ways of attempting to make our life better in some way then I invite you to write a list of between twenty and thirty aspects of your life that you are generally happy with. Write them down. This could easily take a whole ten minutes. Having done that, ask yourself how happy you actually are right now.

NLP Course Newcastle

Graham Testimonial

A vast majority of our happiness is created not so much as what happens to us or what we do but by how we make the meaning of the events and experiences in our life. This really does mean a great deal of how and what we feel really is massively influenced by what and how we think. Think about it!

Our brain is the most amazing thing we have. Without it there would be no perceptions, no feeling and no life. The most complex thing we are aware of in the universe and there is no operating manual to teach us how to use our brains for the better.

So we have our operational use of our brains just the way we have them. And there is certainly room for improvement or we want improvement hence the New Years resolutions. Or as I prefer to use the analogy of a list of goals and outcomes that we think will bring us happiness.

Learning how we can use our thoughts and how we can change our ongoing experience is like waking up from a dream.  It’s like finding out what is really, really important in our life and then doing some ‘making it happen’.

So back to Nightmare on Elm street. There is absolutely everything normal and correct about feeling fear, worry and anxiety. Unless it rules your life as both a jailer, tormentor and torturer.

When I get back home my mother asked what was wrong. I coughed up and said something like “I know its stupid but I have been watching a film at …” We talked for a few minutes and then I asked if I could go out again for just a few minutes.

NLP Training Newcastle

Alex Testimonial

What I did then was walk back the route I had just ran from. Yes it was scary, I was frightened. I was almost constantly reassuring myself that it was OK and Freddy was not coming to get me. When I got back to my friends house I then realised I had to go home again. Scary yes, but I had done it before, so I did it again. I think it’s called feel the fear and do it anyway.

That common experience I am alluding to is when ‘something’ takes over and despite fear, anxiety and worry we do something amazing, pure and life giving.

And yes I know this is no big deal at all and we will all have our own stories as to when we have experienced something life this. so what on earth does this have to do with goals?

When we set goals or New Year resolutions very seldom do we really, really know what the longer game or consequences are. A great coaching question to ask yourself is what is the real and deep motivation that having attained the said goal will actually bring into your life as an honest and lasting experience.

What was my goal in facing a completely irrational fear at 15? I honestly don’t know.  As I look back I can make new meanings, imagine what my outcome was but its just imagination. What is important is that there was an impulse, a very deep motivation to act.

My sense is that when many people make goals or New Year resolutions they probably make a lot of sense and would seem at first glance to be useful yet so many people fail in their good attempts. They act on deep impulse.

For outcomes or revolutions to ‘stick’ there needs to be something more than a deep impulse and some good intentions.

When I coach clients who have goals I use NLP tools to explore the meanings and inherent values of any goals. I share NLP techniques that help people to influence their own thoughts, feelings and actions in ways more conducive to their better wellbeing. And especially to have ways to help tap back into their deep motivation to help stay motivated.

Playful Change – Humour In Therapy : Exceedingly Good Additions For Your Therapy Toolbox : November 2014

If you are an NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, Solution Focused Therapist, counsellor or a change worker of any form you will deeply understand the value of having several approaches to complement your main profession.

Effective therapy often involves going beyond any one specific protocol or pattern because all of our clients are individuals and respond better to some forms of intervention that others. That’s why its invaluable to have a variety of tools that can help your clients out of seemingly intractable thinking patterns or behaviours.

Phil Jeremiah is coming to Newcastle ( for the third time in four years ) this November to share his latest additions in the world of Playful Change. That is the structured use of humour and playfulness within a safe therapeutic setting.

Now have you ever considered the structured and deliberate use of humour, irrelevance and playfulness as applied to therapy? Especially with the people you find the most challenging to work with.

Playful Change in Therapy

Completing this workshop you will have both the skills and competency to interject irrelevance, humour or positive shock which can be easily incorporated into your current work or you could just as well utilise a full 20 minute Playful Change session inside your therapy work too.

The workshop will include patterns, group work and the opportunity to work with Phil one to one in a full 20 minute Playful Change session.

So you are confident in your application of the skills there will be many drills and exercises where you practice the patterns continuing to build on what you are learning over the weekend.

The weekend is guaranteed to be fun, relevant and structured. You can anticipate having a real laugh while your learning in experience.

November 22-23 : Newcastle upon Tyne : £150

Before the booking information, Im going to share a little history about how I was introduced to Phil and why I am inviting him back to Newcastle.

I was introduced and recommended to Phil’s work in 2009 by one of my first excellent teachers of NLP. Such a recommendation was real interesting and couldn’t be refused so I acted immediately intending to bring Phil to Newcastle.

Following a couple of telephone conversations and emails, I realised Phil is very much a kindred spirit and soon we had arranged dates for a two day training in the North East.

In early 2010 Phil came to Newcastle to teach Humour Works to a group of Hypnotherapists,  NLP Practitioners and a smattering of Solution Focused therapists and counsellors. The weekend was a huge success and the feedback from participants was extremely positive.

Phil Jeremiah IV is a world class exponent of Provocative Change, Thought Provoking Dialogue and Playful Change. Phil was one of Frank Farrelly’s ( creator of provocative therapy ) early and close in students.

My opinion is Phil is the slickest and most natural exponent of any of the ‘provocative’ styles facilitators I have seen. Plus his being a superb and fun teacher makes this a training you really must attend. You will be learning much more that patterns, you will be learning application and style.

#TAG – Guru-Kanga Will Never Free You But They May Point A Way

An NLP Practitioner training will offer you structured practices in a very wide variety of techniques that are geared towards your own personal psychological well being.

The tools and process inherent in NLP are of great utility in the helping professions by way of therapeutic interventions and also directly relevant to you with enhancing opportunities with powerful communication skills.

I am much more interested in participants having real skills as oppose to a highly theoretical understanding of techniques. There are no powerpoint offerings. There are demonstrations and then lots of practice so you really understand the deep principles by way of practice.

Do you want serious skills so you can be more successful, more peaceful and more effective at your work with others? Of course the answer is certainly yes. But do you think that will happen without basics and practice? Well possibly … thought without relevant frames of reference, relevant practice and relevant knowledge I think highly unlikely.

What I want to share with you are some thoughts and experiences, what I call The Transmission Effect and what I call ‘The No Structures Vacuum’. This is both simple and complex at the same time but isn’t it always?

It’s simple in that you will have almost certainly been in the immediate company of someone who ‘transmits’ ( you may think of Joseph Campbell, Mariane Diamond, John Grinder, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins, Pema Chodron or The Dali Lama ) irrespective if you agree with their sentiments or not; They are very congruent in their messages. We go to see these experts to gain their knowledge and wisdom but are we always prepared to put the graft in to really getting it as a replicable process or skill?

Being in the presence of such a transmitter, for most who actively listen and engage in set exercises or drills, will leave with some kind of deep experience where the principles, perhaps more that the words will be remembered. Their sharings or more specifically their stories touch at a far deeper level than just words. For me, these people are what I call transmitters.

It’s complex in the sense that what they transmit, at least as far as I can understand, is deeply rooted in structures and process that have taken them a life time to master and continue to shape.

The No Structures Vacuum is what is all so often realised by attending some talk, watching a DVD or being inspired by a halo affected presenter. Think shopping channel, think effortless weight loss info-mercial, think one week later another miracle weight loss product in the cupboard under the stairs gathering dust.

The No Structures Vacuum is the missing link between information and concepts to actual practice and knowledge.

Let me offer an example:

OK now you know about Marian Diamond’s 5 essentials for a healthy brain ( 7 minutes in ). You can have all the stories and factual information you can get but unless you actively seek these out and apply it’s just information.

Many people will attend a workshop, buy a self help book or audio and ‘hope’ that somehow a miraculous transmission of an experts skills will manifest magically into their neurology.

You won’t be surprised that this mostly does not happen. I believe this is because there are no structures developed enough to make this ‘miracle’ just happen.
Miracle products look and feel great because they are marketed to hit our emotional desire centres hard; Activating what we perceive is ‘missing from our lives’ offering the solution to ‘our problems’ and almost always usually won’t work without some active and prolonged effort.

Because real skill or particularly long term positive effects require structures that you build through practice and effort.

I have recently been to an excellent talk by Dicken Bettinger in Manchester. This was a 3 Principles talk. Do you mean you don’t know about the 3P’s? It’s relatively new wave idea in the world of NLP, Coaching and the Self Improvement .

The 3P’s is the work of Sydney Banks and has been around for decades. and as I understand it has been used at a high level in many business for a long time not unlike NLP.

Several of the top NLP, Coaches, Change Workers in the world are using a3P’s and writing books about the 3P’s and running 3P workshops. Working with 3P’s now may be both a highly lucrative venture as well as an up to date ‘kind of’ spiritual practice that is the new scene.

All of these giants of world class coaches, trainers and change workers have many things in common. One huge one is they have been learning and developing their own deep structures through practice and time for many many years. That to me is why they are world class.

So back to the workshop from Dicken

I was very curious to hear, from a long established proponent of 3P’s what it was all about. I have to say what I had read, watched and gleaned from the internet was confusing for me. I went with no expectations at all, just anticipations to get a clear sense of what this 3P’s is all about. I feel my anticipations were fulfilled.

Quite literally two days of storytelling that for me was inspiring to listen to. Many examples from Dickens own life, parallels Buddhism and other traditions. Recollections of Sydney Banks as teachings and personal stories. Something that really came across was the freshness of Dickens words. He said he was speaking from inspiration, from a quiet mind. The word intention was mentioned many times.

Dicken as a world class and highly engaging speaker mentioned that he has meditated for around 30 years regularly and sometimes many hours; at the expense of family relationships and discovering his meditations for calm went awry and often didn’t work in the real world. Yet he stayed with them for decades. Then I understand he found the 3P’s.

Having spent decades meditating, laying down of neural structures and in his decades as a professional change worker ( I think he said psychotherapist ) laying down other structures, the time doing this was not missed to me.

I have been practising fairly regular meditation for years and the meditation I am currently engaged with is extremely useful to me and for me in lots of ways. I have been building structures.

I have been interested in ‘spirituality’ for many years, listening to ‘gurus’, ‘enlightened people’ both contemplating and doing the exercises inherent in their offerings, again I have been building structures. The more I listen, say a month later or a year later to the same offering I usually get a deeper meaning or a different insight.

The transmission effect without structures seems to create ‘states’ or fleeting experiences that don’t last. Ken Wilber suggests practice over time can transform states into permanent traits. I hope you really make the distinction because it is very important in transforming information into practical real world skills.

If you are considering participating in an experiential NLP training program you will want to check out the NLP Practitioner Newcastle page so you can discover much more about what this kind of training will offer you.

Booking is open now for January 2015 … make it happen.

The best experiences can’t be talked about. The next best are often misunderstood because they are attempting to talk about the best by way of metaphor and analogy and are not to be taken literally.

Walk your own path, not the one that your culture or society placed upon you.

The next training takes place January 2015.

This is Something All Hypnotherapists Need to Watch … Failure

Having been in the close company of several world class and well known facilitators of change some of whom are the people I consider the most able, they have on occasion failed miserably to create change. Some failures I have known from direct experience and some via their stories.

Knowing and seeing this that even the ‘best’ can fail and fail completely is a source of liberation from perfectionism. Forcing one’s increasing efforts for diminishing returns onto another person exacerbates resistance and serves no one; unless this is a part of a process.

I would like to you watch the following DVD. Its Milton Erickson the world acclaimed hypotherapist which many in the field of NLP will know as their model of hypno-therapeutic language ( a part of how Erickson worked ) who’s work spawned the Milton Model. Erickson did so much more and as can be seen here to have failed with direct suggestion.

The small number of therapists who think they must always create some kind of change by way of their compliance or more puzzling the ones who are convinced that their one protocol ( a one-trick-pony, the one right way ) works for all are missing two of the most important aspects of engendering change – and these are feedback and all clients are different.

On the NLP courses I offer there are a minimum of three days devoted to hypnosis and hypnotherapy. While the Milton Model language aspects are offered these are incorporated inside of doing actual hypnosis which is much more valuable.

Most students with their fellow explorers experience direct hypnotic phenomena and of course being able to initiate a trance experience. And while the learning how to use hypnotic language is important being comfortable in any seeming failure and somehow utilising this response is way more important.

It’s more important for the practitioner and for our clients – why? Because it is invaluable learning in you can and will fail and where then to go with failure.

Having watched the Erickson video you can see the the very best can fail and fail spectacularly. You can also see there is no attachment to the specific suggestion or even the technique.

If you are interested in learning hypnotherapy and NLP in Newcastle then you can explore the courses I offer.

NLP Practitioner in Newcastle – Begins August 2014

Hypnotherapy Training in Newcastle

 

Before I took my NLP Master Practitioner training I didn’t know I was looking for direction in my life. Not only did I find direction, I had the liberating feeling of knowing where I was going and even how.

In 2004 I was working in a job where the love and enthusiasm I once had had worn off to be replaced by a dislike but it paid well enough to still be sticking it out. That job was a means to provide me with all the kinds of things many people value as the necessary aspects or rewards of a good life. You know money, house, car, hobbies, holidays great social life – all that stuff. It was very much the work to live philosophy for me then.

My main interest then was NLP and having completed an NLP Practitioner I was really interested in taking this further. And like I have wrote, I was engaged in working to live yet the Master Practitioner training I was soon to begin would provide crucial experiences which would pose for me a very deep question. What does it really mean to live?

NLP Master Practitioner Newcastle

NLP Master Practitioner February 2014

So way back then, I was working 5 days a week and the very occasional weekend, stressed at work and looking forward to 4.30pm and heading home. Work seemed to take up way too much of my time and energy and I was living mostly for the weekend and evenings. Those times when I would be free from the millstone of a job I was dragging along behind me through the day and by evening, be doing what I loved to do. Of course, paid for by that old milestone!

My weekday lunchtimes however were great, not because I love food, I do, but my lunchtimes were spent engaging in my love of learning and practising NLP mostly in the Newcastle city centre library. It’s called being a anorak I know. I knew the only way to get really good with anything is ongoing practice.

My previous NLP Practitioner training had given me some of the most powerful and useful learning I had ever had in my entire adult life at that point. I had experienced deep personal changes in how I could run my own brain from the inside out, learned profound ways in which to use language and made some exceptional new friends along the way too. Three cheers for NLP. Hip Hip …

Practically everyone I was involved with my early NLP circles had evolved in perceivable ways and some for sure more than others. I was happier and certainly more connected to the most important people I cared for. And already due to lots and lots of practice was feeling empowered for the most part in my life. Deciding to continue my NLP adventure and life changing learning’s I chose to attend the NLP Master Practitioner training.

Adele MPrac14

Testimonial from Adele

The Master Practitioner is where I had a deep realisation that I really had no direction in my life. And for me a priceless realisation at just the right time!

In addition to the ‘Practising Mastery & Mastering Practice’ the deepening and expanding of the principles of NLP, understanding more about the structure of various processes, having a great time and feeling my skills, perceptions and abilities escalate; One additional aspect to my learning was modelling.

The modelling process on offer at the Master Practitioner was pretty much pure analytical modelling which to me now seems a partial representation of what modelling may be; non the less it was yet another additional way I learned to acquire certain types of skill sets more quickly. Modelling is how the original NLP processes are said to have been acquired.

Modelling hat and anorak on, I went off and over a period of some months ‘modelled’ for around 25-30 hours a really good friend who was one of the most gripping story tellers I knew. I asked all the analytical questions, the whys and what, the thought processes and what was going on inside his head but this was really not getting me a skill I could use, you see some ‘skills’ are more friendly to analytical modelling some aren’t. One person on the course ‘modelled’ how to put flat pack furniture together and in this instance the analytical approach worked very well.

My relentlessly patient questioning did put our friendship on the line more than once. What I ended up doing was mixing up the analytical stuff and simply copying what he did. This simply made intuitive sense to me to physically and verbally play out what my friend did. It still spooked him but less than the questioning.

It was here that I had a proper light bulb moment, where I really was learning the value of copying behaviour in this type of modelling endeavour. Later the next year I would discover this copying was the essential modelling taught by Grinder, one of the co-creators.

But even with all of this new skills and information at my finger tips I was also discovering things I really, really hadn’t anticipated I would get from the training and this made for magic extras in transforming my life!

Testimonial from Holly

Testimonial from Holly

An exceptional tutor on that training and someone still today I am in contact with is Ian Berry. Ian pointed me in two additional directions. One was to explore the work of Joseph Campbell and another was to explore the work of George Lakoff and Mark Johnson.

Lakoff and Johnson was the beginning of an ongoing journey into the metaphorical nature of language and an embodied self in our environment. Exploring the often hidden aspects of our words and seemingly throw away comments that we all use from time to time.

This was really enabling in giving me even more ways to gain insights and more fully understand the communications of others and of course my own. Feeling this kind of sharpening in one’s own perceptions is truly liberating because it is a waking up of consciousness and you gain a little more awareness.

Outside of the course, reading around and watching anything I could on NLP I was beginning to develop an interest in neurology. There are some very sound neurological ‘reasons’ why many NLP Processes work so well in the way they do. It certainly seems to me now here in 2014 that neurology has caught up with NLP in terms of explaining physiological and psychological interventions. My interest in neurology is a really important part in my 1:1 work. I had gotten lots of ways to frame NLP processes and deepen my understandings further.

Testimonial from John

Testimonial from John

Joseph Campbell’s work for me was perhaps, perhaps … the spark that ignited all the training and development I was currently involved in. Campbell was the worlds best know comparative mythologist in his life time. His books and videos of lectures he had given simply spoke in a language that touched my soul or if you prefer touched an innate human curiosity into our history as a people that we all share at some levels.

Mythology incorporates religion, spirituality and the many common themes from the various cultures, societies and civilisations from our planet that we all share. This lead me to a life long interest in mythology and how it has shaped our consciousness and culture, societies and its effects with our life now and into our futures.

This is what it is to be on your own path in your own life. Campbell called this ‘following your bliss’ as in walking your unique individual path in this life time.

This is for me knowing where I am going. When you walk your own path it is truly your own. No one on this earth has don’t it before and no one after you will ever be able to do this. Your path is as unique as your genetics, your fingerprints and the environment you grow in and experience now with your own nervous system.

And Campbell says there are two paths. The left hand path and the right hand path. The right hand path is the conventional path we are expected to take by society. Get a job, get a house, have a family, pay into a pension, retire and hopefully have saved enough for a good care home to expire peacefully with a nice epitaph like “J. Doe – Model Citizen Second Class – Lived a perfectly respectable & conventional life.”

The left hand path is much more about your adventure and discovering what it is you want to have your lifetime in doing. It may be unconventional, not necessarily respected by all but it will be adventure, blissful and unique.
So of course I always had great choice in continuing in my job but I never really realised it in that way before. Never realised how much I was resisting the pull to do something that for me would be a true path.

The NLP Master Practitioner had in many great ways been a catalyst for me in realising a meaningful direction for my life. What was left was for me to act!

Testimonial from Gary

Testimonial from Gary

From feeling very much OK, apart from a job, in life in general that feeling of OK had bloomed into a strong feeling of purpose and direction as to the ways I knew I could live my life. I walked from the Master Practitioner feeling sharper and more awake. Certainly having practised mastery and mastered practice in many skills yet more importantly for me, something deeper had woke up and that would soon bring a wealth of new experiences along with a new career onto my horizons.

Thank you for reading this far. I am hoping you are either considering taking an NLP Master Practitioner training here in Newcastle or maybe you have already decided you are.

NLP Master Practitioner training is one way you can gain additional freedom in your life. Over six months, 18 days, three days per month you will have an ongoing experience that has the serious potential to be massively  transformational for you. You will of course need to put time and energy into this training to get the most out for yourself, your friends and colleagues and clients.

STILL CONSIDERING JOINING THE TRAINING BUT …

You may want to look at my YouTube videos. There are around 130. This is so you can get a sense of how I run trainings. If you are expecting desks, lectures and notes this really is not for you. If you want practical, functional and experiential training delivered with passion and fun in your learning then you are in the right place.

If you are continuing considering booking your place but still have some questions great! Because you can get in touch with me and we can discuss what it is you want or need to know and then you can make an even more informed decision. Send me an email or give me a call.

You should know my time is usually booked well in advance so deciding you want to meet me three days before a training course ( as one person expected ) is extremely unlikely to happen. So make haste and express your interest as soon as you can.

How I went from a job I hated, where I felt totally unappreciated and unfulfilled to discovering a purposeful way I do what I love to do and make a really good living helping people enrich their life.

In 1999 I got my dream job as a software programmer. I was self taught during a carer break where I discovered my previous dream degree related job was not all I imagined it to be. I was working offshore and making the connections between being in prison and living on an oil rig. Yes for sure it was very well paid but and it is a big but I was really not happy.

When I spoke to my family and closest friends about my emotional state, how I was hating working offshore they all pointed out their opinion on the money front. With what I was earning I could ‘retire’ in five years and buy lots of property and there was genuine job security. This was all true but I felt soulless and I was not feeling right with my lot.

All but one, they all told me to stick it out. One suggested I come home and start a restaurant with them. I took the cowards way out, the only way I could and quit my offshore job. But not to start a restaurant, that one luckily, in hind site, fell through.

I did have enough squirrelled away to take a year out and teach myself programming. See, I wanted to be a computer game programmer. I loved the idea of getting paid well to do something I loved to do and I was in love with computer games. So how to make that happen? For nearly a year every day I used my savings to live and study from text books the arts and science of programming. Now this is what I will call a total geek, me! That kind of geekeyness has never left and it is such as asset!

Well I did get a job in programming. It wasn’t game programming but it was programing and within a few years I had risen towards the top of a well principled Newcastle based software company that was in the business of medical imaging and oil and gas imaging. I loved that job and I really did – It wasn’t a job, it was a calling. Well kind of. That was until it went totally corporate and was bought out, as many highly successful oil related ventures do. But what was really the issue, yet again, was my emotional state. This time though it was going to be different. Why was this different this time you might ask?

In 2002 I had begun a journey into the world of Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP. At first just a couple of introductory courses which really sparked my interest in how I could alter and manage my own emotional state and that really equated to taking much more charge of my life and coming out of a poor me or as some call it a victim mentality.

I had done training with a well know local NLP Practitioner training provider in Newcastle and since completing the NLP Practitioner level course I was very different in how and what I could do to better manage my thoughts, my emotions and how I behaved in the world. I was still unsatisfied with my job as a programmer and I realised I was the source and solution of my problems.

To say the NLP bug bit me and bit deep was ( and still is ) an understatement. I was reading, writing and watching everything I could about NLP. I was practising NLP for hours each and every day and this continued over the next year or so. My family and friends thought I had joined a cult because on one New Years day I was driving to Northallerton to attend an NLP Practice group when my friends were going to the pub to make an out out day of it.

What I was doing was everything I could to positively affect my situation and this is clear to see because in 2005 I completed my first NLP Trainer Trainer before I had completed my NLP Master Practitioner while I completed my first Hypnotherapy training. When I say NLP became my life I am quite sure about that. I was the first person I know of to complete a  NLP Trainer Trainer before the NLP Master Practitioner.

What I love about NLP ( and there are other ways too ) is that with practice just about anyone can live a more happy and more fulfilled life. It teaches how to run your own brain and how to use language in ways that are extremely liberating. I was so sure about this and the positive effects with me that I wanted to share NLP with whoever wanted to live a more fulfilling and happier life. The equation is simple to me. If more people are happy, kinder and more understanding of others then the world is a much better place.

In 2005 I resigned and presently left the Newcastle Technopole building by Manors Metro for the last time. I remember walking away, not looking back, looking forward, thinking I will never set foot in that building or work for that company again. The sense of freedom and conviction comes back now as I right this and it feels very very good.

That was a very beautiful and powerful experience for me because I had decided to start my own NLP Training business and go full time working with clients using hypnotherapy. It was also a little scary too because to fund this venture I had chosen to sell my house as well as resign. I was walking my own path and this for those who know is liberating and freeing – it is also completely fresh and new because no one in this way has done this before. As individual as your own finger prints.

Making my NLP Training and Hypnotherapy Training business fully functional and successful has not been some walk in the park. It has been at times extremely hard and effortful work yet always rewarding. In the early years there were a couple of times where I literally had no money and had to borrow from friends and family to eat.

What is absolutely wonderful now and I occasionally need to pinch myself is that I have created an amazing lifestyle for myself where I get to help all manner of people to empower and take more charge of their life. Take more charge of their emotions and more fully do more of what they want or don’t want to do. This is my calling or purpose in life and I get paid and make a good living doing this valuable work.

If you are reading this far then it is fair to assume that you have some interest in NLP. And you should know there are no guarantees that doing an NLP Practitioner training will give you the freedom and lifestyle you want.

Those kind of massive personal transformations require hard work, practise and time. What you will get through an NLP training are the processes that can and most likely will help you make the right kind of changes that support your personal evolution and help you to have a much more enjoyable life connecting more deeply with the right people and nurturing positive relationships.

What You Need To Know About The Kinds Of NLP Trainings Available

ONLINE CERTIFICATION

When there are no other alternatives this can be the only solution. I think about NLP Practitioner ‘online certification’ as the last resort. The whole and necessary human interaction is missing and it is essential in developing the required feedback loop you only get with real people on a live training.

BOOKS

Did you know that around 80% of self help book and that includes the copious NLP self help books are bough and never read? Of those who do a little reading many don’t do the all important exercises as you will discover NLP application is not a theoretical subject.

And for sure even with live trainings you really won’t be able to master all of your emotions and you certainly won’t be able to cure anyones phobia in minutes. That is the proverbal rubbish that you shouldn’t believe because its right up there with the ‘Earn a 7 figure sum coaching’ or ‘Write a best seller in a week’ nonsense that gets bandied around.

Books can help as a companion to actual live training. Assuming you know how to drive or swim how do you feel about a ‘learn to swim book’ ?

I felt helpless and ineffective as a therapist working and helping serious trauma clients until I discovered a process based way I could really affect positive change in those intractable cases.

I recall one specific client who had the dreadful and unfortunate experience of losing their partner some eight years previous. They had had numerous counselling experiences, tried hypnotherapy and even psychotherapy. I found their story was so very sad, deeply moving and extremely depressing to listen to.

This was in 2005 when I started working as a full time therapist and was working from a hired therapy room in Newcastle city centre. I had recently qualified as a hypnotherapist and was using a combination of NLP and Hypnotherapy in my client work.

All of the techniques I attempted had little effect. In part this was due to my lack of experience and in part because they were so embroiled and rehearsed in their story. It was obvious they were in a lots of physical and psychological pain but I was thwarted at every turn. I guess they had told their sad story to every therapist they spoke to and in each retelling they became more and more sad, more and more remorseful and more and more depressed. I desperately wanted to help but I really could not get through. They stayed in a state of deep loss and grief and I really felt helpless to help.

Roll the clock forward towards the end of 2009. I worked with a man who had lost his daughter. Now as far as I can see there is probably no worse event than a parent losing their child – this is not the natural order of things.

Well this man lost his daughter some 10 years previous and similarly had seen therapists of all varieties; hypnotherpaists, CBT, counselling you name it. They held a great deal of grief and loss as you would expect and they were embroilled in their story. Of course they were, losing a child would decimate most people.

This time I was somewhat more experienced in how I work with clients that have experienced serious trauma and after a real large chunk of time have not moved on because they could not let go. I explained what I was going to do and that was listen to his story until I understood he was feeling his worst sense of loss and that I would ask questions so that he would really be feeling his loss. I also explained why I would do this and what I would do as a result.

Once we were both clear what I would do and why. I asked if he was willing to explore this with me and that he was OK with me stopping his story so I could do my very best to work on the feelings that were ultimately the serious problem. He agreed. In this case it is very important to offer an explanation of why I was going to do what I was going to do.

Within that two hour session, for him, a miracle happened. The burden of guilt and loss lifted in a way that was palpable and immediate. The next session I could use time line re-patterning – specifically future orientated and that man felt the freedom to live and be with his partner much more fully in a way that he has not experienced in all that time since losing his daughter. I felt incredibly good in that I had helped this man to open up to the rest of his life in a positive way and I did this without having to have him recount a painful and depressive story in just two sessions that amount to four hours.

The differences in how I was working in 2005 to how I was working in 2009 with serious client trauma was profound. I now had a very simple and robust set of process tools. I had now learned to explain or frame why I was going to respectfully interrupt his story and what I would be doing and how he could respond to respond to this process.

With a strong set of process tools that have little to do with the content of personal trauma I have a great deal of choice and options as to how I can best work with serious trauma clients.

I had moved from the classical counselling orientation or inexperienced NLP or hypnotherapist and their specific options to being able to both frame and utilise one of the most robust and rapid ways of helping clients overcome deep trauma.

NLP Eye Movement Integration : This is work that Connirae and Steve Andreas created and developed in the 1980′s and is used and shared, gratefully, with their permission.

Clueless about English language and scraping grade ‘c’ made it more easy to become a hypnotic language expert.

Learning English language, spelling and something called ‘grammar’ at school never actually made much sense to me. I was hopeless at spelling and didn’t care that I was hopeless at spelling. I never saw the point of getting all excited or angry ( as some of my teachers did ) that my spelling wasn’t so good.

I really didn’t know what nouns, adjective or verbs were until those terms were used on a training course I was attending in 2002. So I asked for clarification of those terms. I saw some people stare in surprise that a 30 year old was asking about basic English.

Even if you don’t know the what terms like verb, pronoun or cleft sentence actually are you are using them every day in normal conversations or you are reading about them even now.

The secret is inside the structure of how to talk hypnotically. What the real secret really is you already, as a speaker of English, know how to do this.

There are a set of common every day words that form the ‘glue’ in the same way that glial cells form the glue that makes the neurons in our brains work the way they do functionally. Using these cards you will very rapidly and experientially learn how to construct, use and maximise you hypnotic language skills.
