NLP Eye Movement Integration

Our North East NLP Practitioner Training is particularly focused on participants learning and developing ways to apply NLP in real world situations.  As training facilitators we are committed to participants having not just the NLP tools but the accompanying skill sets so you can and do change your life for the better.

Many people throughout their life have experienced trauma to some extent or another. Our NLP Practitioner training offers many ways to change the emotional response to traumatic memories and events from your past. One of the methods we share with NLP Practitioner participants is NLP Eye Movement Integration ( EMI ), developed by Steve Andreas. EMI is one of the most effective and content free interventions around to date.

Integrity NLP and Communicating Excellence also run a one day training course called Simple Trauma Elimination Process ( STEP ™ ) for practising therapists and health care professionals. STEP training delivers immediately useful and process orientated tools in both NLP Eye Movement Integration and Emotional Freedom Techniques ( EFT ).

Here Nigel Hetherington demonstrates Steve Andreas’s excellent NLP Eye Movement Integration process during an NLP Practitioner Training in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Practising your NLP skills – NLP Practice group – North East and Newcastle

Tiree PerspectiveHow often have you heard other people lamenting their inability to put things into perspective? If only we could step back and appreciate the bigger picture and put things into context. Fortunately NLP gives us some specific techniques to allow us to do just that.

In this week’s NLP Cafe Andy Hunt will take you through two processes for putting things into perspective. The Perspectives Pattern invented by NLP trainer John McWhirter and further developed by Steve Andreas. In this workshop we will learn to use this simple process to resolve troublesome images and unhelpful self talk. You will need to have had some experience of NLP to use these processes.

Join Nigel Hetherington and Andy Hunt at the NLP Cafe workshop on Wednesday 20th May at St Oswald’s Hospice Teaching Centre, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne at 7pm. The cost is just £10.

Reciprocal Links With Other Therapists – Necessarily Bad Business Sense?

HypnosisImage by zoomar via Flickr

There has for me been a noticeable increase in email this month from hypnotherapists inviting me to link to their site and in return offering to link back to my site.

This is of course an interesting proposal, swapping a link for a link … maybe Communicating Excellence and Nigel Hetherington Clinical Hypnotherapist climbing higher in the google search engines … too good to be true?

Well as a therapist possibly considering emailing a freshly harvested list of other therapists from the many watering holes on the internet with goal of link swapping, consider what is implied when you invite someone to swap a link?

You are to all intents and purpose endorsing the person you link to … you are putting your well earned reputation on the line.

I will only swap links with people who I know are particularly competent therapists because by way of swapping a link, this therapist becomes my personal recommendation.

I invite you to carefully consider with whom you may or may not swap links because for one, all qualified therapist are not equal. All trainings are not equal. I have met way too many ‘qualified’ hypnotherapists that are only just about good enough for reading a script from a book to their clients. Could be this is the very person who wants to swap a link with you?

Reciprocal Links with Therapists – Not Necessarily Bad Business Sense?

Well all things considered my proposal is for you to reject link swapping emails should you receive them. Politely decline these invitations or save time and mark them as SPAM. A well earned reputation is really worth preserving and you know your behaviours indicate your values … protect the public and your well earned reputation.

10 Hints & Tips for surviving a temporary recession – HT nine

FriendsImage via Wikipedia

This series of hints and tips for surviving and making something very positive and meaningful happen for yourself in this time of a so called recession is coming to an end. Now why is that?

Well if you haven’t already, it is time to start putting your plans into action and if you haven’t made plans yet … remember all those exercises in the previous hints and tips? …. Its time to do them before you take action.

Its time to do the things that will differentiate you from the millions of self help book readers to move from a reader to a doer.

Doing something to change how you feel, change your situation and connect deeply with whom and with what is really important to you will make massive difference in your life … and this step to change … is often much smaller that you may have previously imagined.

Crisis, Global Problems, Traumatic Events and Swine Flu all have an innate potential to bring people closer together, the kinds of people who in the face of adversity come together to help and be-friend one another. So now may have never been a better time to forge new friendships and relationships with like minded people who share your interests, desire, passion and need to make positive change happen in your life and those around you.

How about taking and making opportunities to deepen and connect further the positive friendships you already have? You can also be there to help your friends and colleges too.

Getting Stuff Done

Make an honest commitment to yourself to spending a set amount of time each day fully focused on attaining your outcome / goals.  Stop talking and start doing and keep your sense of humour.

A journey of a thousand miles began with a single step

Lao Tzu

Give up any unrealistic expectations that you will achieve your most meaningful outcomes overnight and with little or no work.  If your goals are really meaningful and worthwhile you can, at the end of each day measure your smallest achievements and feel good about those. And if you can … and you can … a sense of gratitude for what you have.

You may begin to feel surprised by what you can achieve with a little commitment, over time – lets say one week or one month from now. A professional life coach may be of some real utility here, at least in the early stages.

Make some time to see your friends and share your thoughts and ideas, you know, having fun and sharing with good friends, talking things through makes a big difference in life, and that difference can be the difference that makes the difference.
