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 Course

NLP Training is all about improving your communication skills, this aspect of NLP is richly endowed in using language much more affectively. Using language to set and frame expectations, honour values and focus attention is a core NLP Training Skill. An NLP Training with communicating excellence in Newcastle and North East will share the secrets of powerful communication and how to use these skills ethically. Do you like sandwiches?

One aspect of the 18 NLP Course in Newcastle is the understanding and application of Meta Programs. Meta Programs are the behavioural and thought patterns that both enslave and deliver. They are called meta programs because until they are identified and utilised or changed, they are major parts of the unconscious aspects of our personality that dominate who we are and how we respond.



A major player in the psycho-lingustics field ( Lutz ) is quoted as saying “its not what you say it’s what is heard”

Knowing and utilising Meta Programs is a surprisingly simple linguistic set of skills to both learn, understand and use. You have seen a simple demonstration in the context of a sandwich. An a very exceptional sandwich at that!

Life changing, life giving. An amazing journey begun. Many many thanks.” – David Mills, father & film producer

Prometheus, the recent Ridely Scott film asks questions that penetrate deep into the soul of humanity and creation. Pointing back in time ans ask the where and what’s of creation and forwards in our time to how our civilisations might evolve. These deeper questions can evoke a search to discover a deeper meanings in our own life, now.

This has been a real experience for me! In a good way! I’ve been on a journey with a wonderful group of people, some of whom I will remain friends with for life.” – Nia Haynes

studies with Nuns from The School Sisters of Notre Dame in Aging with Grace by David Snowdon shows how a mentally stimulating environment can help people to live longer, healthier and more meaningful lives. Statistically we are all more likely to live longer than our parents and with medical interventions, better diet and exercise we may live a lot longer. Part of living longer has something to do with having purpose and meaning in our lives. Learning how to use our minds more efficiently and with purpose actually increases the density and weight of our brains. Learning actually stimulates neuronal growth and development.

Get ready for a journey. This course is life changing. You learn so much. Before I joined this course I had worked in learning & development for 6 years and thought I had a full toolkit. How my mind has been opened & my toolkit increased.” – Neil Black, Learning & Development Manager

Calibrate your clients unconscious responses to tailor your therapy to them real time. Learn how and when to use provocative questioning to create unconscious responses you can utilise and calibrate.

Congruence and Act as if

To engender the right atmosphere for client change you need to walk your talk and be perceived as a congruent therapist. You achieve this by matching you confidence to your skills and becoming an even more congruent practitioner of hypnotherapy. With self manipulation and anchoring with structured exercises you can get you posture, voice and countenance working for you.

NLP Sub-modality Interventions

The way we internally represent our experiences, beliefs and expectations for things we love, like and are good at can be directly mapped and transformed from the problem areas of life and experience. A congruent internal shift can bring about acceptance and skilful handling of problems situations and states.

Tasking

A therapeutic process wherein your client through some ‘task’ is exposed to an experience that creates a counter example to the limiting belief ( cause effect / complex equivalent / filter ) that is the cause for your therapeutic process – outside of conscious awareness; that is hidden in the task.

Structuring Therapy

Creating a meta process or model where you apply you new skill set in such a way that you continue to develop as a brilliant practitioner and your clients are treated as quickly as is ecologically practical.

The Fastest Way To Create Resource States NLP

The fastest most robust way to generate resource states is using a variant of NLP Eye Movement Integration called Lazy Eights. This is a technique I have developed and find this continues to get amazing results very fast.

This clip is from an Ericksonian Clinical Hypnotherapy training I delivered in Alaska earlier this year. The process is very simple to use and is demonstrated step by step in this video.

NLP Practitioner Training Newcastle upon Tyne January 2011 – 18 Places – 18 Days Training & Only £495

When we want to make our life better and are frustrated that it is not happening the way we want it to be or not happening at all, there are some things we can all do to take positive action and get better informed and equipped to make the life changes we want happen.

This excellent value training begins in January 2011 and concludes in June. The Newcastle NLP Practitioner training course is three days Friday-Sunday each month. This course is certified training from the UK based Professional Guild of NLP and the International SNLP and facilitated by top north east NLP Professionals.

We all experience and face common frustrations and problems just about each and every day. Here are just some of them:

  • Wasting Time and Energy Worrying about the NOW…
  • Wasting Time and Energy Worrying about the future ( Anxiety )
  • Economy and Money
  • Your Job Security
  • Your Relationships both Personal and Professional
  • You are not happy or satisfied with you present situation
  • A lack motivation
  • Wanting to turn your life around
  • Worried about paying your bills
  • Unable to get on better with others and yourself

Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP is a kind of pseudo psychology developed in the 1970’s. It has grew to massive fame in the UK largely because of Paul Mckenna’s TV shows. NLP is a successful and powerful way of running your own brain, increasing your confidence, managing your state as well as learning and developing ethical influencing and communication tools. It is also a great deal of fun in the learning! You will make great new friends and meet very like minded people.

Excellent content, great presentation, great group. All of it linked together, I have really enjoyed it and learned a lot from the course, very useful.

Kim – Manager Outdoor Activity Centre

Taking an NLP Practitioner training will of course not solve each and every one of your problems yet it will give you tools you can use to take much more control of your life and generally feel much better about it. You will change the way you think and interact with others. You will learn how to get on much better with people and literally talk their language.

What you will get from this experiential NLP Practitioner training.

  1. Being able to communicate powerfully will be much easier for you. You’ll have the skills to easily develop rapport with anyone you meet.
  2. You will be able to recognise and speak other people’s inner language. We all communicate in ways that very persuasive to us but below the level of conciousness. You’ll be able to tune in, see where they are coming from, make contact with people in new ways.
  3. You will be able to change the way that you think. It ain’t what you think, it’s the way that you think it. Subjective experience has a structure, learn how to change the structure and you change the experience..
  4. ‘You will learn how to have your unconscious mind work for you instead of against you Sometimes we seem to do things that make no conscious sense and no matter how hard we try we are not able to talk ourselves out of them. You will learn how to harness the power of the subconscious and resolve inner conflicts.
  5. You will have the tools to model other peoples skills. Modelling is the fundamental NLP technology of how to acquire new skills. In this training you will learn two ways to model skills from others.

Totally fab, exceeded my expectations. Thank you very much! The trainers are great and the venue is ideal. For me, its the power and awareness of language are the most useful.

Finding Your Purpose In Life

Finding your purpose and discovering real meaning to your existence is not for everyone. Yet it is a question more and more people who want to live meaningfully and follow their bliss are asking.

In his very famous and moving book ‘Man’s Search For Meaning’ Viktor Frankl discussed how he found meaning in life while in a prison camp in World War 2. Finding real meaning and purpose in your life, your relationships and work is really the pathway to bliss. it is not always so easy, it does take work and dedication.

Here is a short message from the Dalai Lama on finding purpose and meaning in your life. Compassion and warm heartedness are key aspects. I also add being true to yourself and acknowledging the most painful and beautiful truths.

Essential Spirituality and NLP – Part Two

Fractal ArtImage via Wikipedia

The concept is to balance the internal and external worlds so that neither one dominates so in equal measures a person leads a harmonious and balanced life. Think about this as doing some thinking as well as taking some exercise. Pretty simple right!

It can be …

It is simple, this is Yoga! Yoga IS a spiritual practice. Meditations to exercise the Mind as well as Physical activities to exercise the body.

Remember one of the so called operational Presuppositions of NLP is ‘Mind and Body Are One System’.

The seeming majority of NLP trainings will tend Strongly to works with mental and cognitive Elements of change yet not pay enough attention Towards the physical development aspects of change.

Yet this still is only half the story. This is about much more than learning mental and physical controls and Disciplines. This is about what happens to a persons Psyche as a function of having the ability to run the Brain and Body in unaccustomed and new ways.

Practically all current NLP training tends not to acknowledge let alone develop any aspects of Practitioners honest spiritual exploration and growth.

Clearly this was not always the case. Both Bandler and Grinder were hugely influenced By the work of the Mystic Carlos Castaneda. They Did in my opinion attempt to integrate spiritual Disciplines and practice in the early NLP trainings. Looking at the co-creators now there is to me clearly a very strong bias on the internal worlds from Bandler and a very stron bias from Grinder on the external experiences.

Now like UK schools, many ‘spiritual’ concepts have Been forgotten, swept under the carpet or Let go in some attempt to gain credibility, get recognition appease governments, seduce would be practitioners, Create ‘professional’ bodies, tap into management Institutes or educational institutions.

The ongoing and current NLP Evolution, I believe Will see an emphasis on honest spiritual development For NLP Practitioners, and just as much a moving away From the ‘trendy’ tic box, academically accredited Nonsense for NLP Practitioner certification that surely Will do to to real NLP education what the GCSE system and bureaucratic government did to hopes of serious Creativity and independent thinking practice.

NLP, like spiritual practice is not for everyone Yet those who do choose to practice NLP in earnest Will surely benefit from additional spiritual practice Intended to balance the psyche as a result of having The ability to run the Brain and Body in new and unaccustomed ways. NLP Evolution … … …
