the Meta Model Easier Made – Part 9

In a great many circles NLP has not got the best of reputations. It is currently being repacked and now appealing to mass audiences by many current writers. One exceptionally good one is Paul McKenna. Just look at his series of best selling books – all repackaged NLP yet hight readable with mass appeal. Will this repackaged NLP reach millions upon millions and change their lives or will the books simply be read and shelved somewhere. Will the lessons, at some level be instrumental in some beneficial social revolution or will no one do the exercises and the inherent value remain on the pages in set type.

The vast majority of NLP Processes, as far as I can currently
understand, are on the whole very good. The application of these
processes is up to the individual practitioner. One recent example in the Independent of Sunday’s ‘Success at work’ series presents a process. The process in itself is very good ( coming loosely from Gregory Batesons Double Bind Theory ). Yet for me, the ethics of application is highly questionable, especially in the context it is presented. This example is from the ‘feel good or no hassle technique’.

Of course you could save £75 on our fees by dealing with the form choices yourself OR if you feel uncomfortable about wading through seven pages of time-consuming complex tax forms and material, which has to be spot on, we could do it for you“.

the Meta Model essentially does two things when used ‘as intended’

  1. It assist stuck clients to change – Therapeutic
  2. It gets high quality information – Business / Pleasure / Therapeutic

Our NLP Practitioner course beginning in January 2008 and the current Integrity NLP Practitioner in Newcastle will uncover the Meta Model and those who are on our next Newcastle Hypnotherapy course will leave with a well grounded and practical knowledge of applying this process therapeutically.
