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.

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.

NLP Practitioner Edinburgh and Newcastle 2014

An NLP Practitioner training course is one of many ways to help people improve their life. This has everything to do with our psychology and perception of how much influence we have in given situations.

Avoiding the absurd and ridiculous claims of NLP practitioners being able to master any emotional state, being able to cure phobias in minutes and never feeling stress again, this course aims to offer the tools and techniques to have a much more fun and engaging life. Starting with you.

I joined the NLP practitioner course as a way to extend my therapy skills to help others make changes in their lives. It gave me all the additional skills I wanted and more. I feel I am a much better therapist, helping people create their own meaningful solutions much more quickly.”

NLP Practitioner training in Newcastle offers much more than ‘soft skills’ in terms of being more able to manage ( not control ) our personal psychology and perspectives in life. This offers principles, the techniques and ways of genuinely, changing our psychological make up, to enhance and live life in deeper ways.

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.

Of course this requires application and practice. There are lots of techniques and tools to make communication more relevant and honest, there is a real accent on having fun during learning because the old classroom style is dead and the way forward is to incorporate joy in learning and making that learning totally practical in day to day living well.

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

My personal take on NLP is that it can, often in powerful ways, help individuals to change HOW we perceive and think about goals and problems in life. NLP Techniques offer a way to better realise your goals and outcomes. Unlike the Secret, this actually takes work and effort. This training is experiential by nature.

The Accent on NLP Course Training

Most of peoples stresses and frustrations come from the interpretation and psychology of our situations. Mostly none of the life stressors actually arise from physical situations. NLP offers well proven and time based techniques that can help you sort your self out … and … create some really positive change.

The NLP techniques create and shape new and additional ways of perceiving life. This is ideally suited to anyone who wants to expand their capabilities as a change worker, coach or professional service provider.

These trainings are for people who want or need to change how you think and act in the world. The accent is fundamentally on you being able to better act and respond in a world of rapidly changing themes.

The changes you want to realise will fundamentally begin with you.”

James Tripp Newcastle : Art of Transformational Change with Conversation

One the real developers in change work James Tripp is coming to Newcastle in November to offer his latest work in an excellent two day training in ‘Transformational Conversation’.

Booking Closes November 2nd

In James’ latest video offering he discusses the ART of transformation. This is at the fore front of current and powerful practical changer work. Anyone that is seriously interested in what it takes to really transform, from a centre of mutual consent, by way of change work, you need to check James’ latest video.

Before That I Want to Share a Little Story

In around 2007 I was planning on delivering a group training for a local interest group in Newcastle. What was planned to be a technical offering to a group of NLPEMI turned out to be a 1:1 demonstration of EMI ( eye movement integration technique ) where the group of about 40 people watched a 1:1 session.

Inside of this group, one wonderfully brave person chose to be a demonstration subject to show the first moves. This turned out to be a full demonstration of a process where this brave soul allowed me to facilitate moving through aspects of trauma ( known to many others in the group ) as a full session of an hour and 25 minutes.

They moved through past trauma and were, on the evening completely unable to re-access the original problem states. They could re-access the memory imprints yet without the negative emotion.

It was, in my opinion, a fantastic demonstration of the process, by way of inability to access the problem states. And in some perspective it was a disaster in that time constraints did not allow for the group to explore the techniques.

Following on from this, one person, approached me, and demanded, before they use this, the research that this process or technique had statistical evidential back up.

I responded ( I think reasonably stated ) you have just seen it. They seemed to disregard everything they has just witnessed, in favour of some statistics. I can’t speak for James, I can speak for myself in that, I am interested in what works, what and how I do what I do has nothing to do with statistics. It has everything to do with how I do what I do. You are not a statistic.

If this is you then this training really is not for you. Stop reading and enjoy your time in other ways.

There is plenty of supporting neurological theory, which do proved excellent metaphors of neurological change for clients. Yet the essence is in a very simple to master technique that continues to provide the experiences to help elevate undesirable emotional responses.

The problems and issues EMIPlus can help to resolve include :

  • Phobias
