Thought Provoking Philosophising Training Newcastle : October 2018

Thought Provoking Philosophising Training Newcastle with Phil Jeremiah IV. You will experience the Percussion, Concussion and Discussion model of how specifically to arrange the context for provocative change.

There are many variants of using humour and irrelevance in change work and there are two unique aspects to taking on and incorporating in your work with a Provocative Coaching Training Newcastle. Firstly there is the Phil factor which having trained with him you will know. Phil is teaching you to own the patterns and apply them as yourself, in your own unique style.

Secondly, an aspect that is missing from many if not most training’s in the provocative method is how to set up and frame what is going to happen to your clients, be this in therapy or coaching. This essential framing allows and facilitates the essence of being provocative. This is called in the inner circle ‘The Bubble of Possibility’.

The Bubble of Possibility – A Humourful Provocative Space for Change

This is the well defined ‘safe space’ of absolute inclusion where nothing is out of bounds and just about anything goes in light of helping a client get unstuck using an array of patterns which are shared in great detail during the training weekend.

A bubble session can be thought of as a kind of brain spa treatment session where your entire body has the potential to be drenched in laughter, confusion and new meanings, solutions and experiences that can completely re-write the old story of what was once a real problem.

Thought Provoking Philosophising Training Newcastle October 2018

Taking this unique training with Phil Jeremiah IV is highly practical and you will get to experience, by demonstration, how to apply the serious use of humour in therapy and coaching. There is a course manual detailing the many varied patterns utilised within a session.

Throughout the two days unique training you will get to see, first hand ( it may be you ) a selection of real change work and therapy sessions. Sessions are 20 minutes in duration, framed within The Bubble of Possibility, Percussion, Concussion and Discussion model.

Discussion being so important it will get a mention here. When genuine and meaningful discussion becomes apparent, this is where tenderness and honest communication becomes vital; this is the beginnings of re-writing a story of love and integrity take shape.  And it is the client who is the author of their change.

Newcastle NLP Practice Group : Saturday June 9th 2018

Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy practice group for a monthly practice day on Saturday. This coming June, Saturday 9th for a day of NLP and Hypnotherapy practice. Some prearranged topics and others will be decided on the day.

Following on from an engaging conversation about allergies, potential room hire and current favorite author; several topics for exploration have emerged. A few are as follows: Grace and gracefulness, how to see difference in the same way and useful reductionism.

Newcastle NLP Practice Group

Grace and Gracefulness

The eyes go forth to seek out a recommendation for the heart …” – Giraut de Bornelh

Trying to be or act with grace is a sure fire way to attain the opposite, whatever that may be. We can and do recognise Grace in others and I suggest that is how, without self reflection we know it.

I would like to explore what ‘we’ mean by grace, a state of grace and gracefulness as a way of both unfolding meaning and perhaps as way of feedback and even concocting some process to wake this up more in each of us.

What I suggest as an outset, is grace can have zero, sum and total thought as well as the observable behaviours others can notice. Seemingly connected to congruence, skills in a field and belief, it will be worth contrasting this with some of the politicians we love to dislike.

 

How to See Difference in the Same Way

But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.” Romeo & Juliet

Conceptual blending is a term I can across in reading ‘Imagine’ one of the exceptional offerings from Jonah Lehrer. The idea is that seemingly intractable problems are solved ( or created ) when different fields of knowledge are blended.

I hade 20 minutes just sitting, watching, listening, feeling the river ( see above picture ). Noticing the different sounds, smells and sensations as I moved a little distance. I was thinking about quantum physics and chaos theory. Hobbies of mine. This is metaphorical conceptual blending.

Walking back home, I saw a group of Rambellers, rambelling. Out of a field, the came, like a flow, like a river. Discordant voices that as I approached ( remember the average age of a Rambler is over 90 ), became coherent, and as I passed the group, perhaps 30, their voices died down, like the past memories of before at the river.

 

Useful Reductionism

So, I mentioned my current fav. author. Well at the moment it reading Skin In the Game by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. One of the layered ideas in this gem of a book is the idea of reductionism. That is making things simpler by subtraction.

Another different way to think of this is the mantra ‘neti neti’; Not this, not this as a way of reducing suffering in a cold climate. In terms of our every growing desire to read more self help books, find happiness and abstract themes like love and peace, what can we stop doing?

NLP Submodalities in action – Making change stick

NLP Submodalities. One of our natural and normal instincts is to move towards the kinds of experiences, habits and beliefs we like, which are good and beneficial and our other natural response is to move away for the kinds of experiences, habits and beliefs we don’t like, which are bad and not salubrious.

This should make immediate sense. The simplest of cells, of which we are largely composed of, demonstrate sentience. Sentience is like intelligence as commonly defined. Plants mostly turn towards the sun, showing heliotropism. Little monkeys,  deprived of their mother, show a preference for a furry warm counterpart and not a cold milk feeder, as Harry Harlow demonstrated.

NLP Submodalities

One of the many evidential stories in the excellent ‘Before You Know It’ – book by John Bargh describes how addicts with about an hour of training each day for two weeks, make statistically significant, long term change.

These people, all volunteers, were given a task of identifying photographs as either vertical or horizontal in nature and on recognition would either push or pull a lever. What was not identified to them consciously is that the photographs with their addictive substance would always be paired with a photograph that was to be pushed.

This was intended and indeed did increase the unconscious avoidance  mechanisms in people with respect to their addictive drug. This by no means was any sort of perfect cure yet was very significant in lowering relapse rates.

In this study, Reinout Wiers and his team helped people change their unconscious attitudes towards an addictive behaviour by pairing or anchoring the human ( and cell like ) avoidance behaviour, push away to their addiction, or at least a picture of it.

NLP Submodalities are classically the manipulation or changing of the smaller lego bricks of our representations of five senses. Or six senses in you include a sense of humour. For instance in the visual field, the submodalities include colour, distance, luminosity and visual-spatial location.

So as science, once again, seems to offer great validity to NLP techniques, in this instance a NLP Submodalities intervention, which NLPistas will recognise also includes a Meta Program, move away, move towards. You should also note the move away, move towards preference is as old as the hills and did not originate with NLP. And Meta Programs are not separate from Submodalities!

What, to me, is of greatest significance is this intervention was repeated hundreds if not thousands of times. This is where critics of such an NLP Submodalities intervention may say it didn’t work. More accurately the operator and the recipient didn’t work enough.

Repetition is critical to move any conscious skill into the unconscious arena. Repetition is the key to making this kind of intervention work and stick.

NLP Submodality Intervention – Making it Stick!

Firstly make a commitment to yourself to apply the time each day for a week or two to repetitively do the following exercise as described. I suggest doing this for twenty minutes a day.

  1. Make a mental image of the habit you want to stop. Close your eyes.
  2. Make and feel disgust. You know the face. Wrinkled nose.
  3. Physically push away the image of the habit you are going to stop. In your imaginations as you physically push away the image, see the image going off into the distance.
  4. Open your eyes. Smile, count to five and repeat steps 1-4.

NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Day : Newcastle : April 14th

As spring comes the Snowdrops wane and Daffodils and Crocus’ are pushing their way up, waxing out into the changing seasons, so too comes the beginning of a monthly NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Day. Excellent value at just £20!

A wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow explorers one Saturday each month to practice NLP, Hypnotherapy and a whole host of behavioural and psychological mischief in a loosely structured, supportive and fun way.

NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Day April 2018

The rhizome or roots of a plant are the life source that again and again provides the nucleus of the flower, the deep structure that provides a blue print for life. Coming to a NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Day is like nurturing your NLP and Hypnotherapy rhizome because we all know practice leads to less error!

This NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice day will be organised around practising key NLP structures like Rapport, Calibration and Flexibility with some prearranged topics as well as you deciding what you would like to practice on the day. Fast Phobia Cure, Submodalities or Meta Model – you choose!

NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Day Topics

Three predefined topics for this NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice day are: One questioning our beliefs as maps of the world to open new possibilities. Two being present without internal chatter to actually learn something and Three some Provocative Humour Worx patterns.

One : In relation to deep roots or the nurturant rhizome, something I find useful for myself and for clients is questioning beliefs and reasons. A delightful, fun and curious way to do this is with ‘The Why?’ exercise. This is something recently developed with my friend Ruth Olayinka for an improvisation course we are planning.

In deeply questioning our words ( as maps of our beliefs ), essentially challenging our justifications and rationales, our reasoning and logic, we can metaphorically return to our deep roots to temp a new flower of being into existence. And note worthy is ‘Why’ can act as either cause or effect, back or forward in time.

Two : I find it very useful when talking with other people to be fully present. This for me has a key ingredient which is having no internal chatter. Usually with no agenda other than to serve. Serving can include but is not limited to listening, reflecting and questioning.

You could call this an NLP model of behavior in time in four quadrants. Attending to your attention as in mindfulness comes close to this idea and there is much more and much less so less is more!

Three : We will be utilising some of Phil Jeremiah’s Humour Worx Provocative patterns to explore problems, stuck states and just for fun in learning.

Most professional societies require that regular practice, training and support form part of the CPD you choose to do. These practice days can make up part of your CPD.

Parts Sublimation in Hypnosis : Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle

This is a demonstration of a really exceptional process I learned on a training I did with Stephen Gilligan many years ago. What I am doing is a slightly reduced version and stays true to the idea of parts sublimation in hypnosis. One of the five change processes that are demonstrated with Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle.

For me there is a subtle difference between parts integration and parts sublimation. I will explain this in a while. The purpose of this process is, like many in the world of change working is to resolve conflict. Specifically internal conflicts on both the behavioural and psychological level.

Here is the recording of the process from the 2017 Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle upon Tyne.

First, for your client, identify something you want to do but instead do something else. This could be thinking, behaviour emotion; This is one definition of unaligned thought and behaviour. Like Hegel’s thesis and anti-thesis. Also a good definition of automatic, unconscious behaviour which is causing some conscious consternation.

Part One : Parts Sublimation : Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle

For this change process this is the idea for change. A pretty typical description of what is happening. Here are some common examples so you get the flavor of this.

  • I want to lose weight, but instead I end up eating a packet of crisps.
  • I want to study, but instead I go out partying.
  • I want to do X but instead I do Y

I want to do X but instead I do Y. This will seem familiar if you are human. Quite often the more conscious disdain for a behaviour or a way of being is often overshadowed by an automatic or unconscious way of being.

Part Two : Parts Sublimation : Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle

Elicit at least three stories that have personal significance and meaning. Take your time with this and make sure you have both a verbal and kinesthetic / affective / emotional representation of this from your client. In this process all of a person, place and thing will be useful.

It’s important to really absorb this yourself as a facilitator. Notice the time that is used wisely in eliciting these three stories and also note the way I am recording this in my own neurology. Way beyond paraphrasing or reflective counseling.

I am re-telling the stories as if they are my experiences as much as possible and checking that I have got this good enough to connect at a level that resonates.

Part Three : Parts Sublimation : Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle

A somatic representation of X and Y. Two distinct physical representation of each state. Where your client can SLOWLY move between while you utilise those three stories as part of a trance exploration.

At this Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle, I work with Ruth, ensuring that both states, what is wanted and what is not wanted is both appreciated and valued for what it is. The hypnotherapy is utilising both the information and meaning from her stories of personal meaning.

The moving slowly is a conscious involvement in the ongoing change process, avoiding the kind of sleeping trance as much as possible. And notice that there is no bias from me, as the facilitator, from speaking about ‘positives’ and ‘negatives’ with respect to a particular somatic/physical position.

The outcome, as the facilitator is a sublimation of both aspects. To transcend and include both parts. In such an evolution in creating a perspective the holds both parts and sees beyond both. Valuing each perspective and behaviour.

For Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Newcastle get in touch to see how you can either enhance your practice or learn Clinical Hypnotherapy from scratch.

 

Humour Worx : Provocative Change : Workshop : Newcastle 28-30 July

Humour Worx and it all begins in the ‘Bubble of Possibility‘. Provocative Change is all about the structured and unstructured ( spontaneity ) use of irrelevance. Irrelevance has a structure so this should at least be confusing. Here we go!

Get an amazing solution oriented set of key skills to add to your tool box with Humour Worx Provocative Change.

The ‘Bubble Of Possibility’ is a metaphor, and from the outset, The Bubble creates a safe and genuinely challenging space to be prodded, poked and encouraged to explore a problem, a limitation or a thought. This is the safe space where provocative change happens. The Bubble is necessary to set the stage of what can happen. Anything, everything and all that is in between.

Phil has been coming to Newcastle to teach his Humour Worx since 2010. Phil’s work is constantly evolving and is based in solid structures that have a way of creating neuro-plastic change in the brain that is soaked in humour.

As a participant you will be learning patterns and drills ( which are easy to learn ) which culminate in a set of skills, suitably framed, that are a perfect addition to your current skills set.

Provocative Change Patterns

This is Phil’s latest work which is comprising of updated structure of Humour Worx being 20 patterns and an additional day of the advanced stuff which is rarely taught, as they say, the cutting edge. Here are some of the patterns.

  • Voice Technology
  • Don’t worry about that
  • Where there is blame there is a claim
  • Problem justification shuffle
  • Research shows

Over three days you will be internalising some 20 linguistic patterns of Provocative Change in Humour Worx BUT as seasoned practitioners know the linguistic patterns are just a part of the congruent attitude that both verbal and non-verbal excellent change workers demonstrate.

You will be developing your own personal style of expression of the Provocative Change Humour Worx system which on day three will grow into the reality you can create and project.

The three days are centered around genuine Bubble Session where you will experience Phil working 1:1 in 20 minute sessions. Did you know it takes around 20 minutes to create, that is grow and solidify new neural connections?

This is an excellent opportunity to work with and model ( in my opinion ) the best Provocative Change exponent. The workshop is also excellent value.

NLP Hypnotherapy Practice Newcastle : March 31 April 1

Ostara or Easter is a traditional Pagan and Christian festival celebrating renewing as in Spring and resurrection metaphorically and for some quite literally. Meaning and Beliefs are a huge part of the maps we use to navigate life. NLP Hypnotherapy Practice weekend this Easter will explore what can happen when meanings and beliefs change.

NLP Hypnotherapy Practice Newcastle

It is common practice in change work to explore meanings as a way to improve and change a situation, perception or event. Humans are meaning making organisms and sometimes the meanings we make can be debilitating or can be empowering and freeing.

Equally we all have or apply beliefs to many aspects of life. These can be scientific beliefs that we use when boiling a kettle or the more common general associations we have learned which seem to accurately predict the future.

Like Easter and its cultural significance one persons ‘belief’ may be another persons mythology. The comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell defined 4 functions of a successful and living mythology. We can extend these to our individual beliefs and their associated meanings.

4 Functions of Myth – Joseph Campbell

Pedagogical Function. The application of beliefs ( Myth ) that will assist the believer with and through the various problem stages of life.

Cosmological Function. The beliefs that put the believer in accord with the science of the day.

Sociological Function. How the belief works well to maintain and support the society and culture we live with.

Mystical Function. The aspects of belief that put the practitioner in touch with the divine source of all creation.

Exploring our own enabling and empowering beliefs and their opposites with their associated meanings can help us in recognizing our habits and how to change and improve them.

The weekend will also include practicing core ‘beliefs’ or ‘act as if’ ideas that tend to make NLP & Hypnotherapy work even better. Lots of practice, lots of fun in learning and developing.

This is excellent value at Only £30 for a full weekends CPD, Practice and Development in NLP and Hypnotherapy.

There is a specific emphasis on the linguistic patterns and methods as defined in works and papers of Erickson and Rossi which expands well beyond the NLP Milton Model. The idea here is with practice to absorb and internalise a whole new world of hypnotic language and story telling and make it your own.

Who Is Advanced Hypnotherapy Training Newcastle For?

This is specifically for hypnotherapists and professional change workers who want to deepen their skills foundation as well as enhancing and raising their methods of working with clients. There are additional opportunities for participants for personal directed study projects during the course.

I have always understood the value of being a generalist. This usually prevents myopic and rigid thinking. By exploring a vast array of different fields and disciplines you will open to new ways of working more effectively for and with your clients.

If you are interested in integrating some of the latest ideas from fields such as economics, chaos theory and spirituality into your work this course will most probably delight you.

Newcastle NLP Training

Jo Raven : Testimonial : Click to enlarge and read

My journey with NLP began around 2002-2003 and initially my interests were purely for curiosity and self development. I was ( and still am ) absolutely fascinated with the aspects of language and communication NLP has to offer because being better able to understand myself and understand others is a required life skill.

As my training and understanding of NLP continued I really did start to see the world through new eyes. This for me involved exploring some of my deep beliefs and old perceptions that were preventing me from living the life I truly wanted. This involved understanding and then changing old behaviours.

Newcastle NLP Practitioner

Paula Martinez : Testimonial : Click to enlarge and read

Perhaps its because I love learning and applying what I learn to make life even better that by 2005 I had completed an NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapy, NLP Trainer Trainer and NLP Master Practitioner in that order.

Even then I didn’t know I wanted to change careers from a software developer to and NLP and Hypnotherapy training facilitator. I was combining the software job with working with hypnotherapy clients but not until I took a real good look at my life in 2005 was it that I decided to do both what I love and that can really and effectively benefit others too.

The beauty in learning NLP is that there is massive enphasis on practical ( not theoretical ) training so learning NLP is actually very easy and straight forward.

Tracy Turner : Testimonial : Click to enlarge and read

I don’t know where your NLP journey will take you. Perhaps it is to collect a wide range of highly transferable soft skills or it is just for your learning and development or perhaps you are thinking of training to become a hypnotherapist? I don’t know, perhaps you don’t fully know or you have some very concrete ideas. Your journey will be fun, enlightening and you will meet wonderful people along the way.

NLP Practitioner Training In Newcastle – Help in Troubling Times

It might feel like freedoms and liberties are being steadily eroded in the current disturbing political climate. The attempted privatization of the NHS and the deplorable lack of funding in schools and communities. Basics such as food and fuel are rising faster than wages. An unknown and uncertain future with Brexit and world leaders acting like children at a nursery, all be it a nuclear nursery.

Newcastle NLP Practitioner Full Course Description

These are just some of the current objective difficulties we all have to navigate in a world that can feel unsafe yet has the potential to be paradise for everyone. So learning to be more able to influence our emotions, thoughts and actions will seem like a very good course of action to be able to do better for yourself and the people you both are close to and work with.
