Coded NLP and Hypnotherapy Patterns

Elements of Generative Change

An exploration of the elements of assisting clients …

The process of generative change and opening possibilities to lead an even more meaningful and purposeful life is all about making connections between a goal or outcome and the inherent values, beliefs, purposes and motivations that are driving the outcome or goal.

By abstracting or generalising the driving forces or ‘what does this actually get you’ in terms of the goal you can assist your clients in experiencing the real purpose or meaning of their goal.

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.

NLP Meta Programs – Easily Understood

Meta Programs in terms of NLP are the initial creation of the Bandlers. Meta Programs are ultimately derived from Carl Jung’s work. Andy Hunt and Newcastle hypnotherapist Nigel Hetherington started Integrity NLP to offer the highest quality NLP Training at prices people can honestly afford.

Here Andy Hunt introduces NLP Meta Programs in a way that is very easily understood.

NLP Anchors : How Not To Anchor

The single most important thing you must know about NLP anchoring is it is all about preparation.

In order to anchor any resource state, the state must be fully accessed. Many people fail to create powerful anchors to states because the state they are anchoring is neither intense or pure.

Here is an example of how NOT to anchor.

Trauma Resolution Workshop For Counsellors and Therapists

Here is an exert from day two of the weekend workshop for Trauma Resolution For Counsellors and Therapists.

I found the material and the presentation excellent, what I have seen of the Generative Change process fills some big gaps in my conventional NLP training and the EMI allow the body mind to connect and integrate the release of emotional issues in a very clear and clean way!

This weekend concentrates on Generative Change as well as incorporating EMI (Steve and Connirea Andreas’ Eye Movement Integration’ ) to dissolve trauma. This workshop will run again later this year, sponsored by The Newcastle Counsellors Association.

NLP Cause And Effect – An Outdated Model

The idea, concept or model of Cause And Effect is very familiar to physicists and NLP’s. The model proposes that one action ( a force ) is caused by another action ( another force ). Or equally, one thing necessarily causes another.

The Cause Effect model works extremely well for static forces as well as dynamic forces but not so well for living beings and human interactions. Human beings are way more complex, interesting diverse than to be reduced to a cause effect model. A much more useful model to consider is one of Intention – Consequence.

John Grinder,  Wayne Dyer amongst many others use and make use of the Intention – Consequence model for amazing results. Now me, Nigel Hetherington, I don’t always have the consequences of may actions in mind when I act, I still get stuff wrong and make amazing blunders that are of course disguised learnings! Something I am working with and through!

Here is a little video clip exploring Meta Programs and Cause Effect.

Perceptual Positions – NLP – Spinning Dancer

This is a ‘great optical’ illusion to see the ‘dancer’ spin both ways.

One of the easier ways to see it spin the other way is to close you eyes and imagine it spinning the ‘other way’. Alternatives are to watch the shadows. So seemingly ‘it’ is seen to spin both ways.

Here is the challenge, can you see it spin a third way?…

New Year and The NLP Meta Model – Free E Book

The New Year is a time for making resolutions and changes in your life.

Whether you are a student or master of NLP there is likely one particular aspect of NLP that has been a source of joy or consternation in your ongoing journey of self discovery and exploration. This is the NLP Meta Model.

In my experience, having met over one thousand NLP’s, the Meta Model can often be  confusing and one of the least understood aspects of NLP. It doesn’t need to be this way at all! You don’t need to know the confusing labels and terminology.

All you need are examples and a context to put them in. It really is very easy … once you give yourself permission to experience the Meta Model and understand it afterwards. After all this is the basic model for learning. The understanding comes later.

The Meta Model can be simplified to two questions

“What Specifically” and
“How Specifically”

And you can further build up your experience and understanding very easily by downloading this free 56 page e-book. Join well over 1000 people who have already downloaded this free NLP resource.

Make 2010 a year where you can become much more familiar with the NLP Meta Model.

Happy New Year!

Changing Your State with NLP : Cloud Process

States are created inside people. The way we respond to external or internal ( memories ) stimulus and events often determines the way we feel. There is literally no fine line between elicitation and installation. This is an installation and emergent – directed metaphor process.

Research indicates that 80% of what we see is created in the brain … it is what we see, either real time or memories that drive feelings. This is great news! Because by running your own brain you can massively influence how you feel.

NLP application is about running your own brain / neurology to create the stimulus to influence how you feel. How you feel, like motivation and desire to change your situation to something more beneficial is our human birth right.

This is a demonstration from the Communicating Excellence NLP Practitioner Training of how you can by using your internal memories with metaphoric and emergent installation techniques to CHANGE HOW YOU FEEL using only your own brain.

The excellent Cloud Process is a kind of directed and emergent metaphor. The Could Technique is designed by Kevin Creedon.
