A Hypnosis Training of Outstanding Distinction : The Neuron Code – from Michael Perez

A hypnosis training of outstanding distinction with my mentor and friend Michael Perez and this is in Newcastle this coming November!

The Neuron Code : New foundation in hypnosis : structure and practice. An exceptional and extraordinary event in hypnosis. November 15th-20th.

The Neuron Code : Practitioner I: New Foundations in Hypnosis — Structure and Practice

Michael has used insights from his own work and the work of some of the greatest hypnotists of our time along with the revolution in cognitive neuropsychology to deconstruct ‘hypnosis’.

By breaking down so many of the myths and so much of the antiquated thinking about hypnosis, Michael presents a new way of looking at things that is geared towards creating more powerful interventions more consistently and with more people than any other approach to hypnosis.

You’ll learn to understand the differences between different kinds of ‘inductions’ and you’ll learn about the different kinds of altered states, the spectrum we call ‘trance’, including which processes produce which states and which states are correlated with which special abilities.

You’ll also learn the fundamentals of extraordinary calibration to read people’s neurological state at a glance and you’ll learn the basic framework which will allow you to create powerful improvisational interventions with any client for any situation.

Translation: You’ll become a hypnotic force of nature, an amazing improvisational facilitator and you’ll understand just enough of the neuroscience-y bits to make you understand and do things in a way that will change both your life and the lives of people around you.

The training is 6 days, November 15th-20th, Newcastle upon Tyne. £749.

Seating is strictly limited. Special pricing and bonuses are available for a limited time if you book early. You can message me immediately for details.

There are some early-bird discounts for the limited places for this training … so if this is you … contact me immediately as special prices expire in just a few days.

Here is Michael on YouTube explaining what this coming training is all about

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.

Thought Provoking Dialogue Workshops Newcastle 2011

Thought Provoking Dialogue is a humorous, often irrelevant and completely client centred way of working. This approach is not for everyone yet a 20 minute ‘bubble’ session has the gentle power to help shift clients from problem states to resource states and create lasting and powerful change. In the ‘bubble’ anything and everything is possible …

Humour can help to break old patterns and establish new ones

So many research papers and books tell us of the positive effects of laughter. Apparently 20 minutes of laughter is equivalent to 20 minutes of physical activity, likened to an inner form of jogging. It may well act as a buffer against day to day stressful perceptions. However, laughter is not easy to come by in our mixed up fear driven world. Consequently Thought Provoking Dialogue sets out to challenge our sometimes negative mind-sets and self-limiting beliefs.

Research shows that laughter can help to boost the immune system

These workshops are all about therapeutic uses of humour and a Thought Provoking approach to real change. An absolute must for therapists, coaches, trainers and all people helpers! Phil Jeremiah was one of Frank Farrelly’s ( Provocative Therapy ) earliest and brightest students.

Hypnosis Training Course – Newcastle upon Tyne

Sunrise Paddling on the North Canadian RiverImage by FreeWine

Recently the NHS has announced that over 100 staff are likely to be made redundant in yet another exercise in job, staffing and service cuts. All of the redundancies are being said to be voluntary. A very similar offer was made towards the end of the 1980’s when a market crash, an old oil war scuffle and a trade bubble burst.

The people that took the offer of a ‘golden handshake’ were the people who thrived on change and took the opportunity to do something different with their lives. The people who stayed behind were the people who sought security, the least creative and the people that companies really could do without.

Elman Induction

One of the simplest and certainly most effective hypnotic inductions is the Elman Induction.  It is a rapid, permissive and direct induction.

I looked on the internet to see if this was easily available for people to study and found very little unless you signed up for it.

I want to make hypnosis much more available than what it is on-line.

This exert is produced with permission from one of my Clinical Hypnosis  Weekend courses that are run in Newcastle upon Tyne.

This video give the basic demonstration. There are a lot of subtleties that go hand in hand with the process that are not explicated. Learning really should be fun! Enjoy.

Generative Change – A Real Goal for Therapists?

The words ‘Generative Change’ are often written and spoken by a great many therapists. These words have become popularised but what do they actually mean and even more importantly how does any therapist go about engendering this ‘Generative Change’ with and for their clients?

Let me first expose what this is NOT.
