NLP Practitioner Newcastle August 2016

I didn’t know a single thing about NLP when I attended a weekend introductory course. I was there by pure accident or simple fate. What happened from there changed my life in incredible ways.

Attending the NLP Practitioner was one of the single most useful and life changing things I have done. The tools and techniques helped me change how I thought and communicated. I had totally new ways to relate to others and be much more able to take someone else’s perspectives and understand better.



One aspect of the training is in discovering in a very real sense, what we already know, yet aren’t necessarily consciously aware of. These little discoveries often bring those light bulb moments of deep realisation. One such aspect for me is NLP’s Meta Model.

During that initial training, most of the participants seemed to be very confused about the Meta Model. I think they were stuck on the labels and desperately trying to understand something prematurely. A common experience in so much adult learning. My truth is the Meta Model is incredible easy to learn to use well.

There is absolutely no need to know the labels or terminology. What I learned was how to use the Meta Model to much better understand what people are saying as well as how problems can be both created and resolved. Understanding how to make sense of language is an incredible valuable life skill for me, which is used personally and professionally.

I gained important new and different perspectives about how I think and process information. I also was encouraged to consider what I truly wanted in life.

These teaching and deep learnings lead me to study hypnotherapy, which ultimately lead to a career change to do something meaningful and enjoyable for myself. But that is another story.

This coming August over nine days I am facilitating an NLP Practitioner training in Newcastle. This is a training that will offer you valuable tools and insights that could make your life and your interactions even more interesting.

There are currently eight places still available. The training is fantastic value at £595. For details of the NLP Practitioner and booking please click on this LINK.

Happiness, Watzlawick and NLP Practitioner Training in Newcastle

As we move from 2015 into a new year of 2016, there are many aspects of our life which I believe will benefit greatly from a certain class of improvements. Moving pretty rapidly beyond having enough resources to live in security and comfort, this class of improvements will be the kinds that create genuine compassion and succinctly and simply nurture happiness.

The purpose of this post is to invite you to watch a video ( which is below ) that is about perhaps not a new way ( its very old ) but likely a way to think differently and more relationally about your own situations and certainly being a citizen of the world, to think differently about the world we are a part of along with all of the other people we share this blue life giving marble with.

This idea to share comes to me as I have been revisiting much of the material I started reading almost 15 years ago as I began my journey of NLP. Particularly I have been revisiting works of Gregory Bateson, Paul Watzlawick and Joseph Campbell. There are certain themes that are shared and hopefully should you read and research them, perhaps, you will get deep insights into what Bateson called ‘the pattern which connects’ and perhaps you will change certain aspects in how you think, act and are in this world…

Many a great philosopher, scientist and spiritual teacher have understood in the West where there are in our time, truly great advances in science and medicine which certainly have the potential to eradicate hunger and wars, as there are more than enough resources for the entire earth, noticed that there seems to be very little spiritual ( one meaning of this to me is world wide compassion and sharing in an inter-personal way ) evolution.

Remember that a staggering half of the worlds wealth is held be 1% of the population. This is an unrepresented moral inequality.

In Lakoffs excellent book ‘Moral Politics’ he discusses a term ‘Privateering’ as being how corporations ( in bed with governments – who we elect ) have and are turning societal services which governments should protect and run for their citizens into private services which strip wealth from citizens. Look at our national health service in the UK or the formally named ‘Blackwater’ security service in the USA as examples.

Lakoff also explores ‘Framing’ as a way of hardwiring certain concepts into our brains which can tend to get people to vote against their own interests, values and beliefs.

A frame can be thought of structuring values, ideas and ways of thinking in line with your own purposes. Frames such as ‘war on terror’, ‘Councils forced to make more cuts’, and ‘politicians to get pay rise’ have a tendency to evoke a certain way of thinking and emotions. And most of this though is well below the threshold of consciousness.

On an intra-personal branch, how we relate to ourselves, much of the thinking an individual will do is again unconscious and the little of what we are conscious of can seem like both a reality and a belief, for good, ill or somewhere in the middle. The frames, meta-programs and our conditioning that are alive and active ( how are these activated? How are these changed? ) as it stands can lead to us being fearful or joyful in any variety of situations. Where the strong influence on our emotions and thoughts can seem out of our own hands.

Being happy is all peoples birth right as humans. The Dalai Lama has a strong accent on being happy. It is said that the purpose of life is to be happy. Buddhism as one of the worlds oldest spiritual / life practices has a strong accent on human beings and the main teachings of human illumination are freedom from fear and desire ( two major frames used to shape thinking in politics ) and also a freedom of what society might term social duty, especially when many aspects of what is deemed right in society is clearly flawed and serve so very few.

Just one of the many ways of reshaping our consciousness and our deep frames and narratives is exploring both how we think and having an idea of how we think we are in a position to change the structure. Changing previously unconscious modes of thought, especially their meanings, does actually take time, effort and practice. And this is a worthwhile life practice.

NLP has a strong accent on process or the how something is accomplished. Its like learning the scales on a guitar, the rules for programming a computer or what happens when an artist mixes colours of paint. Once you have and understand these basic principles or fundamental process structures and their relationships, you can create your own art.

The basic unit of learning according to Bateson is difference. Exploring the differences that make a difference in a positive way in your own life and those who you are relating with, for me is one of the real gifts in NLP. Some details of NLP training in Newcastle beginning January 2016 are following this inspiring video from Paul Watzlawick.

Here is a deep and prophetic video of Watzlawick [ When the solution is the problem (1987) ]. Now this is subtitled so you really will need to invest some time and effort … and it will be well worth it!

Taking an NLP Training for very many people has a rather profound and positive effect in their life. Now NLP will not dramatically change your life, its you that can do that. What NLP offers are processes which can lead you to new and different ways of acting and being in the world … perhaps the ways where you learn to make yourself feel more resilient and feel happier more of the time.

Connection & Empowerment with NLP Training in 2016 in Newcastle

‘Lifelong learning’ (Colloquialism) is the “ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated”[1] pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability, rather than competitiveness and employability.[2] – Wikipedia

 

When I began my journey into NLP I was perusing an interest in how I could become a better person. Better in the sense of being more able to cope with the stresses that were associated with my job, relationships and life in general. And because I love learning.

The experience of NLP is an ongoing journey of discovery of connection and empowerment and so much more …

Chris Shalliker Testimonial

Initially I wanted to be more able to control my emotions and was very curious about how I could apply the NLP bits and bobs I had accumulated from reading a book or two and from attending a couple of introduction weekends.

My introductions came more by happy accident than setting out to utilise NLP to dramatically improve my life conditions but as I said to myself, there you are beginning an NLP Practitioner and you’re just here for the experience!

What I discovered during that first practitioner training was a great deal about how my brain worked and how I could use language in ways that can influence and ways that can uncover the deeper meanings in communication. And perhaps the experience of life long learning.

Satu Eleftheropoulou Testimonial

I learned a variety of ways to both understand myself better and to better understand where other people come from in their words and actions; this created the conditions to be much more open and able to nurture relationships in my personal and professional life.

The techniques I have learned have helped enormously in those times, which we will all face when its challenging, hard and difficult to move forward in life.

These same techniques and processes have been a great benefit to the people I see in a therapeutic and coaching context because, learning that we can, through practice, change how we think and assume the world to be, is a very deep freedom and potentially life changing life long learning that is our birth-right.

Jeff Wakeling Testimonial

The technology and processes in NLP are easily learned through practice. These techniques have the power and potential to help us grow as people and in doing so be better able to communicate and connect with others. And these qualities are needed by the people of our little planet more than ever, right now.

How I went from a job I hated, where I felt totally unappreciated and unfulfilled to discovering a purposeful way I do what I love to do and make a really good living helping people enrich their life.

In 1999 I got my dream job as a software programmer. I was self taught during a carer break where I discovered my previous dream degree related job was not all I imagined it to be. I was working offshore and making the connections between being in prison and living on an oil rig. Yes for sure it was very well paid but and it is a big but I was really not happy.

When I spoke to my family and closest friends about my emotional state, how I was hating working offshore they all pointed out their opinion on the money front. With what I was earning I could ‘retire’ in five years and buy lots of property and there was genuine job security. This was all true but I felt soulless and I was not feeling right with my lot.

All but one, they all told me to stick it out. One suggested I come home and start a restaurant with them. I took the cowards way out, the only way I could and quit my offshore job. But not to start a restaurant, that one luckily, in hind site, fell through.

I did have enough squirrelled away to take a year out and teach myself programming. See, I wanted to be a computer game programmer. I loved the idea of getting paid well to do something I loved to do and I was in love with computer games. So how to make that happen? For nearly a year every day I used my savings to live and study from text books the arts and science of programming. Now this is what I will call a total geek, me! That kind of geekeyness has never left and it is such as asset!

Well I did get a job in programming. It wasn’t game programming but it was programing and within a few years I had risen towards the top of a well principled Newcastle based software company that was in the business of medical imaging and oil and gas imaging. I loved that job and I really did – It wasn’t a job, it was a calling. Well kind of. That was until it went totally corporate and was bought out, as many highly successful oil related ventures do. But what was really the issue, yet again, was my emotional state. This time though it was going to be different. Why was this different this time you might ask?

In 2002 I had begun a journey into the world of Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP. At first just a couple of introductory courses which really sparked my interest in how I could alter and manage my own emotional state and that really equated to taking much more charge of my life and coming out of a poor me or as some call it a victim mentality.

I had done training with a well know local NLP Practitioner training provider in Newcastle and since completing the NLP Practitioner level course I was very different in how and what I could do to better manage my thoughts, my emotions and how I behaved in the world. I was still unsatisfied with my job as a programmer and I realised I was the source and solution of my problems.

Amy Testimonial

To say the NLP bug bit me and bit deep was ( and still is ) an understatement. I was reading, writing and watching everything I could about NLP. I was practising NLP for hours each and every day and this continued over the next year or so. My family and friends thought I had joined a cult because on one New Years day I was driving to Northallerton to attend an NLP Practice group when my friends were going to the pub to make an out out day of it.

What I was doing was everything I could to positively affect my situation and this is clear to see because in 2005 I completed my first NLP Trainer Trainer before I had completed my NLP Master Practitioner while I completed my first Hypnotherapy training. When I say NLP became my life I am quite sure about that. I was the first person I know of to complete a  NLP Trainer Trainer before the NLP Master Practitioner.

What I love about NLP ( and there are other ways too ) is that with practice just about anyone can live a more happy and more fulfilled life. It teaches how to run your own brain and how to use language in ways that are extremely liberating. I was so sure about this and the positive effects with me that I wanted to share NLP with whoever wanted to live a more fulfilling and happier life. The equation is simple to me. If more people are happy, kinder and more understanding of others then the world is a much better place.

In 2005 I resigned and presently left the Newcastle Technopole building by Manors Metro for the last time. I remember walking away, not looking back, looking forward, thinking I will never set foot in that building or work for that company again. The sense of freedom and conviction comes back now as I right this and it feels very very good.

That was a very beautiful and powerful experience for me because I had decided to start my own NLP Training business and go full time working with clients using hypnotherapy. It was also a little scary too because to fund this venture I had chosen to sell my house as well as resign. I was walking my own path and this for those who know is liberating and freeing – it is also completely fresh and new because no one in this way has done this before. As individual as your own finger prints.

Making my NLP Training and Hypnotherapy Training business fully functional and successful has not been some walk in the park. It has been at times extremely hard and effortful work yet always rewarding. In the early years there were a couple of times where I literally had no money and had to borrow from friends and family to eat.

What is absolutely wonderful now and I occasionally need to pinch myself is that I have created an amazing lifestyle for myself where I get to help all manner of people to empower and take more charge of their life. Take more charge of their emotions and more fully do more of what they want or don’t want to do. This is my calling or purpose in life and I get paid and make a good living doing this valuable work.

If you are reading this far then it is fair to assume that you have some interest in NLP. And you should know there are no guarantees that doing an NLP Practitioner training will give you the freedom and lifestyle you want.

Those kind of massive personal transformations require hard work, practise and time. What you will get through an NLP training are the processes that can and most likely will help you make the right kind of changes that support your personal evolution and help you to have a much more enjoyable life connecting more deeply with the right people and nurturing positive relationships.

What You Need To Know About The Kinds Of NLP Trainings Available

ONLINE CERTIFICATION

When there are no other alternatives this can be the only solution. I think about NLP Practitioner ‘online certification’ as the last resort. The whole and necessary human interaction is missing and it is essential in developing the required feedback loop you only get with real people on a live training.

BOOKS

Did you know that around 80% of self help book and that includes the copious NLP self help books are bough and never read? Of those who do a little reading many don’t do the all important exercises as you will discover NLP application is not a theoretical subject.

And for sure even with live trainings you really won’t be able to master all of your emotions and you certainly won’t be able to cure anyones phobia in minutes. That is the proverbal rubbish that you shouldn’t believe because its right up there with the ‘Earn a 7 figure sum coaching’ or ‘Write a best seller in a week’ nonsense that gets bandied around.

Books can help as a companion to actual live training. Assuming you know how to drive or swim how do you feel about a ‘learn to swim book’ ?

NLP Practitioner Newcastle

NLP Practitioner course in Newcastle beginning 24th January 2014. 18 days training for £695 from a well established and highly experienced NLP training course provider in Newcastle.

There are many reasons why people choose to learn NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming. Some of the most popular and highly relevant reasons today are :

  • Having tools to make life easier and more stress free.
  • To use language more precisely and effectively.
  • Increasing our sense of personal freedom.
  • To go on to learn hypnotherapy.
  • Change personal limitations.

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

Choosing the right provider for yourself is very important. You are almost certain to have some questions about any NLP course you are considering joining. You can click here to read some common questions and their answers from Nigel.

The ‘L’ in NLP is for linguistic. Language is the most important aspect in our everyday communications and co-operations with others. How we use language artfully, with integrity and with more focused intentions is a key aspect of a truly beneficial NLP course.

Language can be a massive part in sharing our information and knowledge. Language is crucial in coordinating our actions and understandings with other people. Language is at the heart of most meaningful communication.

Some of the powerful language skills and tools you will experience and learn on this training are :

  • The NLP Meta Model
  • Meta Programs
  • Hypnotic Language

With these tools you will have the capability to shape and use your communications more effectively. This is to ethically influence others and just as importantly ethically influence yourself.

My original intention for doing the NLP Practitioner course was to enhance my communication skills with my patients, which has definitely been the case. What I didn’t anticipate was the huge personal benefit that I have gained from doing the course. I would recommend this course to anyone from any walk of life.

– Dr. Alison Collins, Award Winning Dentist

You will have the capability to use other peoples language to get a much better and deeper understanding of where they are coming from and their perspectives to better facilitate social and professional relationships.

WHAT FLAVOUR OF NLP DO YOU WANT?

There is often a huge emphasis on the ‘modelling’ or skills acquisition aspect of NLP ( modelling traditionally tends to be Master Practitioner training.). After all NLP Modelling is ‘how’ the co-creators ‘learned’ the innate skills from the greats such as Pearls, Erickson and Satir.

The truth is the vast majority of people choosing to add NLP to their tool boxes couldn’t care less about learning modelling skills.

It is a fact that almost all people going to do an NLP Practitioner training course actually just want rapidly usable and practical tools plus techniques to improve current practices with enhancement of prospects as a result of completing a practitioner training.

This is a practical and experiential training that has the potential to positively change your life and your relationships.

What This NLP Practitioner training is NOT:

  • Classroom lectures.
  • A Rapid fast track NLP Course.
  • Continuous training ever day for the duration.
  • Learn and leave attitude.
  • Expensive training.

What This NLP Practitioner training IS:

  • Learning via experience, learning through doing.
  • Modular approach with integration time.
  • Supportive during and after training.
  • Excellent value training.
  • Well established, current and relevant.

COMMUNICATING EXCELLENCE SIGNATURE NLP TRAINING
