#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.

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.

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.

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.

NLP Practitioner Newcastle

NLP Practitioner course in Newcastle beginning 24th January 2014. 18 days training for £695 from a well established and highly experienced NLP training course provider in Newcastle.

There are many reasons why people choose to learn NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming. Some of the most popular and highly relevant reasons today are :

  • Having tools to make life easier and more stress free.
  • To use language more precisely and effectively.
  • Increasing our sense of personal freedom.
  • To go on to learn hypnotherapy.
  • Change personal limitations.

In all the sessions you use the techniques on yourself to achieve your goals and solve your problems. NLP is able to be used as a secret therapy so you do not have to share any personal information with your colleagues, meaning you feel secure to change those things that are most personal to you. My perspective of the world has opened hugely and enabled me to make changes on a very deep level.

Pauline Thomas – Occupational Therapist, Yoga Teacher and now NLP Practitioner

Choosing the right provider for yourself is very important. You are almost certain to have some questions about any NLP course you are considering joining. You can click here to read some common questions and their answers from Nigel.

The ‘L’ in NLP is for linguistic. Language is the most important aspect in our everyday communications and co-operations with others. How we use language artfully, with integrity and with more focused intentions is a key aspect of a truly beneficial NLP course.

Language can be a massive part in sharing our information and knowledge. Language is crucial in coordinating our actions and understandings with other people. Language is at the heart of most meaningful communication.

Some of the powerful language skills and tools you will experience and learn on this training are :

  • The NLP Meta Model
  • Meta Programs
  • Hypnotic Language

With these tools you will have the capability to shape and use your communications more effectively. This is to ethically influence others and just as importantly ethically influence yourself.

My original intention for doing the NLP Practitioner course was to enhance my communication skills with my patients, which has definitely been the case. What I didn’t anticipate was the huge personal benefit that I have gained from doing the course. I would recommend this course to anyone from any walk of life.

- Dr. Alison Collins, Award Winning Dentist

You will have the capability to use other peoples language to get a much better and deeper understanding of where they are coming from and their perspectives to better facilitate social and professional relationships.

WHAT FLAVOUR OF NLP DO YOU WANT?

There is often a huge emphasis on the ‘modelling’ or skills acquisition aspect of NLP ( modelling traditionally tends to be Master Practitioner training.). After all NLP Modelling is ‘how’ the co-creators ‘learned’ the innate skills from the greats such as Pearls, Erickson and Satir.

The truth is the vast majority of people choosing to add NLP to their tool boxes couldn’t care less about learning modelling skills.

It is a fact that almost all people going to do an NLP Practitioner training course actually just want rapidly usable and practical tools plus techniques to improve current practices with enhancement of prospects as a result of completing a practitioner training.

This is a practical and experiential training that has the potential to positively change your life and your relationships.

What This NLP Practitioner training is NOT:

  • Classroom lectures.
  • A Rapid fast track NLP Course.
  • Continuous training ever day for the duration.
  • Learn and leave attitude.
  • Expensive training.

What This NLP Practitioner training IS:

  • Learning via experience, learning through doing.
  • Modular approach with integration time.
  • Supportive during and after training.
  • Excellent value training.
  • Well established, current and relevant.

A shorter concise course is ideal for teachers, parents and anyone who wants an excellent NLP training in a relatively short period of time.

How you choose your NLP Practitioner course is something well worth considering and taking the time to do well. This is because all courses are not facilitated in the same way and naturally facilitators have different personalities.

If you want a classroom style, desks and lots of note taking, plenty of theory, loads of talking and discussion about techniques and hardly any practice then training with Communicating Excellence is not for you.

When you are interested in dynamic, practical and engaging NLP training where there is an accent on learning through fun, connection and sincerity then you are probably in the right place. There are never any Groupon deals. The prices are as advertised.

It also was one of the most fun and important 6 months of my life. Nigel’s teaching is fascinating, extremely well explained and absolutely hilarious. I spent the training weekends laughing, enjoying myself immensely and learning a huge amount.

You are likely considering taking an NLP Practitioner training to improve your prospects and improve your life – for sure that sounds very likely. I go as far as to say your life could become a great deal easier and lots more fun.

There are some wild and fantastic claims being made by some NLP trainers. So from this training you are extremely unlikely to be able to totally control all of your emotions at any time. You wont be able to cure any phobia in minutes or even know what someone is thinking.

My idea of honest and real NLP training is you become happier, enhance your communication skills, be able to change and influence your own thoughts and emotions, have more fun in life and be much better able to relate to yourself and others.

In all the sessions you use the techniques on yourself to achieve your goals and solve your problems. NLP is able to be used as a secret therapy so you do not have to share any personal information with your colleagues, meaning you feel secure to change those things that are most personal to you. My perspective of the world has opened hugely and enabled me to make changes on a very deep level.

NLP Psychotherapy Counselling and Hypnotherapy

NLP as a therapeutic tool deals with and helps people to alter their emotional states and emotional responses to their problems. Why is this psychotherapy?

People who have fears, phobias, anxieties and the kinds of problems that are made manifest through their current thought processes are real and problematic feelings that are to a ‘real’ extent not actually caused by their immediate environment or actual real word situation.

These problems are generally caused by memories, thoughts and an over-active imagination.

Hypnotherapy Gateshead

To offer a diagnostic label, mostly unhelpful, yet pertinent to this post, this is known as neurosis or less commonly psychoneurosis.

The solutions that NLP therapy ( NLP Techniques used in a therapeutic or Coaching way ) offers help to people to change their perceptions and emotional states. This means changing how they think and can often offer a deep and meaningful rearrangement of life and word views.

The classes of problems an NLP Therapist will help you with would commonly be termed psycho neurosis. Anyone who is offering help and assistance in these circumstances is affectively offering psychotherapy. There are usually no accompanying claims to being a certified psychotherapist as these are two totally different things.

A hypnotherapist – that is, a psychotherapist who uses hypnosis” – William Baldwin Ph.D.

Psychotherapy and NLP

Anyone attending counselling, coaching or psychological therapy from a trained professional is receiving psychotherapy. Psycho in meaning psychological intervention and or coaching and therapy in terms of offering positive help. It is important to make this distinction because it is very easy to be confused by well meaning people.

The following exert is from a UK ‘Therapist’ web site.

Recently, I heard a local training provider (who incidentally is top of google in my region and does a lot of trainings) label it as ‘common psycho-therapeutic practice’ which is absurd. Dangerous in fact to label it as such, especially if you are not a psychotherapist, I know I am certainly not, nor he.”

Psychotherapy and being a psychotherapist can be confusing terms. It is easy for anyone who is not familiar or relatively inexperienced to fail to make these distinctions. So here is the definitive WIKI ;-)

Psychotherapy Definition – Wiki

Psychotherapy is a general term referring to therapeutic interaction or treatment contracted between a trained professional and a client, patient, family, couple, or group. The problems addressed are psychological in nature and can vary in terms of their causes, influences, triggers, and potential resolutions.

Accurate assessment of these and other variables is dependent on the practitioner’s capability and can change or evolve as the practitioner acquires greater experience, knowledge, and insight.”

NLP as most people understand are the techniques and tools offered on most NLP Practitioner training courses, they are not the skills and tools that are used to collect the ways and means of experts. They are however the popularised tools and techniques that vast majority of people attending an NLP Practitioner walk away with following an NLP Practitioner training course.

Paul McKenna has made a great impact in personal development world by way of amongst hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT, ”Havening, spinning feeling – these are all the bog standard NLP techniques. None having been modelled in the true sense of NLP. They are simply some of the Techniques, Tools and processes of the NLP Practitioner or NLP Therapist.
