NLP Master Practitioner Newcastle North East England

The emphasis on my NLP Master Practitioner training is two fold, namely, Practising Mastery and Mastering Practice.

The Newcastle NLP Master Practitioner training is all about Modelling and Practising the Mastery of your NLP Practitioner skills and techniques. NLP by its co-creators Grinder and Bandler has been said to be about the technology of how NLP techniques came about:

That is finding and discovering how the best in their field do what they do and learning to copy or replicate their skills in some systematic way. This is one description of the process of NLP Modelling which is the core activity of NLP.

Here is a video of Tim Ferris ( who has nothing to do with NLP ) giving a captivating descriptions about aquiring skills that make a difference, a real difference!

Applied NLP modelling – that is ‘Natural Modelling’ and ‘Cognitive Modelling’ combined are the focus and application of your modelling project. This is how to assimilate skills that You Can Use to transform your life and way of living. You wont become the people who you model or necessarily have their success, yet you can assimilate their skills so You Can Become More Of Who You Want To Be.

Recent modelling projects have included :

  • Captivating An Audience – As A Very Successful Radio DJ
  • Learning Like A Child – Dancing
  • Hands On Facial Release – Bowen Technique
  • The Gestures and Expressions of Barack Obama

What would you like to Learn and Master in a very short period of time that will honestly enhance your life?

The next Communicating Excellence NLP Master Practitioner – for NLP Practitioners begins in September 2010.

NLP Neurological Levels and Coaching – Part 1

This is part one of a set of videos from an NLP Practitioner training in Newcastle. The topic is NLP Neurological Levels as an exploration tool. The purpose is to open new possibilities with different and additional perspectives. And being very clear, in this context,  this is not a change process yet the foundations for change are clearly made.

One of the participants was in a car crash and here Dilts’ neurological levels model is used as both an exploration and partitioning tool to explore  the car crash.

Apologies for the sound quality, concentrate on the process.

The Need For Closure – Part One

...Hurt...Image by frakokot via Flickr

if you have ever broke up with a real love, if you have lost a close friend or family member or if you have ever experienced a deep trauma … you may well have come across the term “The Need For Closure” and likely you will have felt the need for the ‘experience’ in question to come to some kind of satisfactory end. Or an end that you can make a satisfactory meaning of …

When I say ‘come to an end’ I am talking specifically about the feelings of hurt, guilt, pain or any unresolved issues and any of the other recursive negative emotions or thoughts that have been running around your brain as a result of the ongoing, replaying experience you want to end. And … some kind of cognitive and satisfactory understanding about the event. Most of all to CHANGE HOW what you FEEL!

‘The Need For Closure’ in terms of an event can then be thought to mean three things:

  1. The thoughts and feeling relative to the event, generally repetitive and unwanted, are by way of some new experience brought to an end.
  2. A new and conclusive understanding of the event and your ‘why did it happen‘ questions answered.
  3. To be able to get on and to move forward in life. To STOP the unwanted though process and MOVE ON …

The term ‘need for closure‘ became popular in the 1990’s due to media exposure and the terminology refers to an individuals need to have a satisfactory conclusion albeit a cognitive and emotional ending to some traumatic event in their life.

Individuals that score hight on the Need For Closure Scale ( Kruglanski, Webster, Clem ) are said to require rules and structure in their life and are generally intolerant to ambiguity and uncertain situations. People who have very little Need For Closure are generally more creative, optimistic and thrive on uncertainty and ambiguity. These also happen to be the characteristics of natural leaders.

If the Need For Closure is related back into a therapeutic setting as in recovering from some traumatic event then it is reasonable to assume those people with flexible beliefs and attitudes will naturally recover quicker and with less effort.

Yet this really is just another term for reframing. The art and science of CHANGING THE MEANING of what you think has or has not happened to you.

The next parts of this article will explore possible solutions and ways to satisfactorily close such an issue emotionally, take the learnings and MOVE ON.

Donna – Project Co-Ordinator

You could have heard all sorts of claims about NLP. That it’s a way of developing advanced communicating skills, influencing people, achieving your goals, managing individuals and groups, avoiding the things that you don’t want and getting much more of what you do and so on.

You may have heard about the ‘Learn NLP in 7 Days’ programs. In our opinion these simply do not work.

Coaching and NLP using Neurological Levels

One of the tools I use with performance Coaching in Newcastle upon Tyne is Dilts’ Neurological Levels Model.  The NLP Neurological Levels is an excellent way to compartmentalise and partition an experience or equally an outcome or a problem. Such that any ‘situation’ can be explored in terms of Environment, Behaviour, Capabilities, Values, Beliefs and Identity.

The purpose of partitioning, one of Erickson’s hypnosis strategies, is to explore an outcome or equally a problem with the intention of discovering points of maximum intervention, this is what I call a Change Points. A Change Point is any place of intervention where there is greater potential for positive change to occur.

This first video introduces NLP Neurological Levels to a group of NLP Practitioners in Newcastle upon Tyne. The following videos will illustrate how to use Neurological Levels to explore both outcomes and problems.
