ESMR change negative emotions – free NLP Process

Practically every person has had some event or events in their life that for one or several reasons has left some emotional scarring or baggage.
NLP Practitioner Training Newcastle upon Tyne
NLP has many tools and processes that are specifically designed to take away the negative emotional charge of past events. The popular name of Change Personal History can describe the class of processes that deal with this.

As a practising clinical hypnotherapist I fully appreciate the immense power of the unconscious mind and the limitless resources and healing powers it contains.

Those past events that are negatively charged are like fragments singled out in time but what came before and what came after?

Something happens to the memory when the event is extend both forwards and backwards in time. It is no longer the same.

I have created a process called Event Scope and Meaning Repatterning – ESMR which harnesses your unconscious mind to create the right resources to change the memory and level the old painful memory.

Request my occasional newsletter to get your free copy of this effective process and access many other free NLP resources.

NLP in Therapy – North East and Newcastle

Twenty people have chosen to attend the Excellence In Therapy workshop in Newcastle this coming weekend. This unique workshop is sponsored by IntegrityNLP.

The people who are attending range across Therapists, Hypnotherapists, NHS workers, Psychologists, Mental Health Professionals, NLP Practitioners, NLP Master Practitioners, even NLP Trainers.

The workshop is specifically about applying NLP in therapeutic settings and is delivered by Andrew T. Austin who Bill O’Hanlon ( brief therapy ) has described as the “British Milton Erickson”.

This workshop will cover topics like Guilt, Shame, Anxiety, Depression and will look at real therapeutic interventions from an NLP and neurological perspective.

BUT, that’s not all. Andy is also going to be sharing valuable information on building your practice.

NLP State change – Bronson Style

If you already have some NLP knowledge and experience you might have tumbled that a great deal of NLP is about changing states.  You can package it and repackage it, call it new names ( 4G super nlp, XXX-code, i-nlp ) you get the picture right!

Sometimes I like to read books for the hell of it. One such book was Charles Bronsons Autobiography.  A very interesting read to say the least.  Bronson is one of the UK most securely held prisoners.

One part of the book tells us how Bronson ‘calms’ himself down.  He does this by putting his head in very cold water and keeping it there for as long as he can.

Now if anyone has every tried this and I have, the state shift is really quite dramatic. I can also vouch for the mammalian diving reflex!  All precautions for you own safety should you try this as I have been told you can drown in a teaspoon of water!

Anyroad, so how could this be used?

one class of examples is pattern interruption.

If you are stopping smoking and you are doing pretty good but you get a craving and it builds and builds…

What does The Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, Corporal Jones from Dad’s Army, and the slogan from the BBC news web site with the latest petrol pricing crisis have in common?

the words DONT PANIC

Language is processed unconsciously, so, not surprisingly, the effect of the words dont panic is much more like PANIC!

Perhaps the next helpful headline attention grabber ‘slogan’ could be SAY NO TO CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE OVER ROCKETING FOOD AND PETROL PRICES, DONT WORRY, DONT PANIC, IT WONT BE BAD’ – Arraghhhhhhhh!!!!!

its the same kind of effect as the now proverbial dont think of a blue elephant. What do you do, you think of a blue elephant. Brilliant!

The use of negative commands almost always has the undesired effect ( unless you are using them deliberately ), Like DO NOT FEEL GOOD NOW.

Anyway, if you look at one of mayor Boris Johnson’s initiatives you can see immediately the effect positive language can have.

no happy not negating then!
