Weight Loss & Pain Management Workshop

OK so you or your clients want to lose weight it’s that simple. So from the outset, it’s all the about the past – a past that has been stopping, restraining or imprisoning you. A bold statement, perhaps, so let’s explain.

When the past is mentioned its like everything you know was learned at some point and for most people, habits or expectation about the future are predictions made from past experience.

With weight loss, these are the disabling beliefs that circle around diets and miracle cures like vultures, ever ready for the next celebrity endorsed meal. What needs to change, must change for something long lasting is the entire foundation that is the emotional baggage and past we have all carried.


NLP Hypnotherapy Newcastle
 

There is a gateway to the imagination you must enter before you are conscious and the keys to the gate are symbols. You can carry ideas through the gate … but you must carry the ideas as symbols” – Frank Herbert

These very predictions of behaviour, thought and emotion are to avoid pain be it emotional, psychological or physical. And are the foundation of how and what we are today in behaviours, thoughts and emotions.

Digging up, basically removing the old foundations to create a very new basis means coming to terms, letting go and being reborn, like a Phoenix, could clear the way, open fresh possibilities, new possibilities to spectacular new ways of being – this means letting go of the fear-avoidant way we move through life is incredibly liberating.

Even being open to new possibilities creates change, the ground for liberation.

liberate means to be free. To stop coping with life the way you have. To open to the possibility of new and effortfully-joyful ways relating to yourself, food and … a lush way of living in a much more connective way.

This workshop will explore how pain ( physical and emotional ) can be liberated in means by a way of newly freshly taken in information and the resultant integration giving-creating genuine choice and purpose in losing weight.

What Will I Be Learning?

Some time ago, I was texted by a prospective student for an NLP/Hypnotherapy ‘what will I be learning in actuality’ – well this is important in regards to both weight loss and pain release; For two reasons.

Knowing what is being learned kind of defeats the idea of learning anything new. Usually this at best maps something different with new to old learning ( what we are trying to avoid ) and secondly they were too lazy to look at my web site.

Committing to both learning and embedding new habits is crucial in making any long lasting change. This requires effort. But – effort in the right place which is primarily psychological as well as behavioural.

Releasing the emotional and physical pain of past experiences and learnings has the potential to immediately create new ways of being in the world. Such past shocks to the psyche are going to be liberated with a method based in aspects of The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Kind of like acknowledging and letting be the vulnerable child in parts work. Tears of release anticipated!

What is a critical part in any change work is belief that change is possible. This is not like the ‘i would like to believe’ as would be many a religions practitioner in word but a deep, honest and forward feeling belief. More than faith but with stories of possibility we are creating a fertile ground for change.

A belief like this ( if its not already there ) is about stories, be they religious, scientific or anywhere in-between. It’s also about opening to the possibilities of change at a deep and sustainable level.

Following on from these aspects, we are looking backwards from the future, remembering what happened to create, shake and move us in the correct directions … and to move ourselves. This is rooted in our own deep and very honest values. What I call Spiral Dynamic Informed Future Pacing.

So a quick round up of some of the ways and means of pain release and weight loss.

  • Commitment and correct effort to succeed
  • Tibetan liberation from the past
  • Pain release
  • Creating a self motivated and purposeful future
  • Follow up and post session on Zoom

This workshop is informed with works from many of the most inspirations and meaningful books I have read. This is ranging from neuroscience to spirituality which offer the stories and the structures that can support change.

Mythology ( a story ) is “A traditional tail with secondary partial reference to something of collective importance.” – Berkert/Meineck

Changing Problematic Behaviours using Hypnotherapy Parts Sublimation

We all from time to time experience a problematic behaviour. This typically means a certain set of ‘responses’ within a specific context. For example during public speaking, one may be engaged in an unhelpful conversation with oneself.

A new process for therapists and hypnotherapists to sublimate aspects ( seemingly competing psychological parts ), to working together to inspire and create more.

This is about psychological and behavioural parts sublimation. Where the parts together are greater than each other. Where individual strengths are valued and fully utilised within a greater frame.

NLP and Hypnotherapy Training Course Newcastle upon Tyne

Ideally in this example, of public speaking, it may be better to not be having that inner conversation and instead having your attention directed outwards with no internal chatter.

This kind of ‘problem’ can take the form of I want to do X but instead do Y. Where X is the desired behaviour and Y is contextually problematic.

  1. Establish the ‘I want to do X but do Y instead’ problematic behaviour.
  2. In chair 1, induce trance and develop honest unconscious signal.
  3. Deepen trance and gain unconscious agreement that the client will stay in trance while and as they move to another chair.
  4. Move to the other chair, chair 2.
  5. Gain unconscious agreement for a conscious amnesia for the problematic behaviour Y.
  6. With freedom, have the client practice the new behaviour many times, and ask for unconscious confirmation when this has been done in a way that meets values, ecology and wellbeing.
  7. Future pace this new behaviour X, so that after the 3rd, or 5th or 10th time this has happened in a good way, the client will recover the amnesia for the old problematic behaviour Y. Gain unconscious agreement for this.
  8. Invite the unconscious to create any useful conscious amnesia for this recovery until appropriate.
  9. Gain unconscious agreement for client to stay in trance while and as they move back to chair 1.
  10. Move back to chair 1.
  11. Invite the client to return to normal waking state. Let your client do this at their own pace. Once they are ‘back’ immediately begin talking about anything else as a conscious distraction on the work you have just completed.

I have created this process researching Milton Erickson’ works on amnesia, ideas from Steven Gilligan and the New Code NLP explicit unconscious ‘yes’ at each process step from 2-11.

The idea is very much not about parts integration, as in adding up to make a merged whole. It’s parts sublimation. Sublimation to me means ‘parts’ without boundaries. Where the parts are valued individually and the sublimation is more than the parts as in 1+1 makes three or more.

Feel very free to use, adapt and tinker in any ways you wish.

Meaning In … Unity … In Meaning

A Workshop To Explore & Connect With Your Soul – Act From Your Heart & Speak Your Truth

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” ~ Gospel Of Thomas

Unity comes from Latin ‘Unitas’ from Unus, meaning ‘One’.

There is a fundamentally available and known space we can occupy

  • A space where we can simply be accepting of all that is arising.
  • A place where we accept others as they are; a space where we accept ourselves as we are.
  • A space where we can connect with everything and nothing; be moved and unmoved.

This is a Soul space

We humans are makers of meanings and we are meaning makers. How we relate and compare, how we evaluate and judge and how we include and exclude can be apprehended as characteristics of our Internal World, our Shared Reality and a deeper understanding of Feminine and Masculine energy. None of these are fixed and if anything, they are infinitely expansible.

Paula and Nigel in this one day workshop will facilitate an exploration of how we can all connect more deeply with our own and shared purposes in business, play and life. How we can welcome and accept our deepest selves and use this experience to welcome difference and diversity whilst holding ‘true’ to our own unique and individual purpose. This is about enabling a more Soulful life, here, now.

We cannot not judge. We cannot not evaluate. We cannot not make decisions. Masculine and Feminine typically do this in different ways. Cultures and Societies have different intrinsic values and beliefs that create certain world views. Aiming to be appreciative and accepting of how all this happens will open perspectives even more so we can realise the Unity in Diversity and come from the deepest recognition.

Knowing we can be moving more expansively to places where we can accept without trying to change others beliefs, values and meanings to allow us to be much more accepting of other and ourselves without the need to understand ‘why’.

The only meanings this life has are the ones we create, share, and accept as ‘true’. Being able to have the Heart Space and Mind Space that together opens a Soul Space is a genuine experience of what can’t be said with words. Come and dis-cover your Soul Space, your Unity …

Newcastle NLP & Hypnotherapy Practice Group : September 13th : 7-9pm

We certainly do live in interesting times don’t we? Take a look and listen at what is going on in our region, what is going on in the UK and what is going on in and around the World.

Riots, Wars, Unemployment, Shops Closing, Rising Inflation, Petrol & Fuel Increases … and it can all way too easily feel like a very worrying time to be alive.

Have you ever wondered how some people can seemingly be unaffected by a less than positive world and somehow continue to remain upbeat. In other words, how is it they don’t seem to worry or succumb to their own fears and anxieties?

We usually can’t always do a great deal about external events in the world but … We can do a huge amount about how we respond and think in response to the outside world. We can also do a great deal of really simple practices that bring us to Inner Peace and from this place we can be more fully in our world.

How will it be if you can have some really robust tools that are both easy to learn and highly practical to help you gain a better state of mind and rediscover your inner peace?

Well there really are a great deal of ways this kind of state of mind can be achieved. Come along to this Trance Cafe to experience a powerful synthesis of NLP, Hypnotherapy and Eastern meditative practices that you can use in your life and share with your clients. Tuesday 13th September, Newcastle with Nigel Hetherington.

NCCCT Conference 2011 – Nigel Hetherington

May 14-15 will see in the first Northern Change Workers, Counsellors, Coaches and Therapist Conference [ NCCCTC ] held at Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne. There are still tickets available to, more on that in a little bit.

The NCCCTC organised by Nigel Hetherington ( me ), is a gathering of the change workers and change consultants who are early adopters, the so called progressive front, of those of us who want new and different perspectives, ways of connecting and insights on how to improve our professional ( and personal ) practice in the world of change professionals and therapeutic partnerships.

This conference brings together eight accomplished and highly skilled change professionals who’s passions is to share and learn from each and everyone at the conference, with a view to highlighting effective principles, models and refined ways of working with our clients.

The NCCCTC is an extremely low cost, very high quality event that will deliver a multitude of different perspectives which all participants are invited to explore. The intention of this is not an intellectual exercise but to share and explore our modes, methods and principles of how we approach the business of change work. Each presenter will share their individual ways of working. At the bigger perspective all of these methods are really very effective and participants will get the different flavours of change work offered. Not so much a change work pick and mix, more a change principles ( with methods and process ) exploration.

There is no one ‘right’ way to approach change work, and the invitations are to absorb and assimilate all of the principles and process’s offered and then go out into the real world, your practice, and explore how you can make the most helpful and even profound changes in both your clients and yourself, updating how you choose to work. You can anticipate both theory but more so practice, with exercises and real world experience.

This is a wonderful opportunity for both seasoned professionals and people new to the field of professional change work to get insights into how we operate and work with clients. You can anticipate a wide variety of different approaches and tactics. And so much more …

The NCCCTC will close for general booking on Monday 9th May. It is a real bargain, and an honest investment in your professional practice @ £40 for two full days, with eight top tacticians posing as presenters.

Venue : Rutherford Hall, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne : 14-15 may 2011

Spirituality in Coaching & Therapy : Session 2 : March 23rd : 7-9

“When your sense of self is no longer tied to thought, is no longer conceptual, there is a depth of feeling, of sensing, of compassion, of loving, that was not there when you were trapped in mental concepts. You are that depth.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

When we come direct from heart space we create an energetic connection that surpasses the concept of empathy or our multi-sensory capacity. In doing so we create the neutral vacuum that two souls can share to explore, discover, test, challenge and shift. For us, this is our recipe for lasting and generative change.

Paula and Nigel ran a café in February with thirty change workers from our region. Within minutes a space or vacuum had been created and a sense of calm descended. A place of peace and an open invitation to a gate for learning was present. Trust was not in consciousness as exploration overwhelmed any sense of anything else egoful.

In this place the concepts of reflection and projection were explored, safely and deeply. In the co-created space, the learnings shared, revealed reflections to be obviously seen, felt and heard. Projections as a consequence were so apparent and evidenced by the triads within which each individual worked. In one group three women who did not know one another before and without consciousness had sat next to one another apparently ‘just because’ shared the same shoes and suit, all shared the same organisation in terms of one had been employed by it, another currently employed by it and the third attending an interview the following day for it. Further they all shared the same fears and depth within those fears, they all shared a desire to learn NLP and two learned that a couple of weeks later they would share the same learning space on a course they had both booked completely independently.

Feedback came pouring in over-night from co-creators who in sharing the same continued to process for enlightenment. Emails have poured in subsequently and we could share many quotes with you but perhaps this one sums it up:

“For me, it’s all about leaving rational thought processes behind & allowing myself to connect fully to my inner self & to simply experience what is happening as it happens without thought or judgement.”

In our continuing journey into the theme of creating heart space whenever or wherever we go, the passage of time and process of reflection by you and us, has now revealed the next steps to be taken.

And boy has it revealed such phenomenal learnings have come to us to share with you in a way that cannot not open you to the greater source that exists within. And when in touch and aligned with your greater source, heart-space emanates in ways that the conscious could not conjure or create by itself. In turn this provides the neutral vacuum that two souls (or more as we’ve experienced) can share to explore, discover, test, challenge and shift. Again in continuous discovery, this is still our recipe for lasting and generative change.

So in this second café Paula and Nigel will facilitate your exploration of the deeper sense of self in a very different and dynamic way to anything that you may have experienced before. If there is language to explain what will happen we would say this experience will take you beyond the idea of ‘personal development’ and into the realms of ‘self awakening’.

You will have the opportunity to co-create between us a space where learning is shared and multiplied by just the essence of your being.

So please come join us for the journey of a lifetime knowing that once entered life will never be the same again.

Spirituality in Coaching and Therapy

The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have.

Norman Vincent Peale

Spirituality In Coaching and Therapy – Newcastle NLP and Hypnosis Cafe Monday 7th February 7-9pm : Gosforth Library Newcastle NE3 3HD : £10 Including Biscuits. Book online below.

When we come direct from heart space we create an energetic connection that surpasses the concept of empathy or our multi-sensory capacity. In doing so we create the neutral void that two souls can share to explore, discover, test, challenge and shift. For us, this is our recipe for lasting and generative change.

So in this café Paula and Nigel will facilitate your unpacking of the deeper and more connecting ways in which yours and our therapeutic alliances work. How they are formed, how they grow and the effect and impact they have on our and the world.

We will open and share our thoughts and processes of how to develop co-created alliances by exploring the concepts of projections and reflections prior to, during and after a dynamic interaction. We will also consider projection and reflection in terms of attracting clients into your life for mutual healing and purposeful learnings.

Every person we meet has something to teach us, and every person has something to say that only they can say. We both believe we attract the clients that will help and be beneficial to our ongoing development. This may also include ‘healing’ your past. viz a vie we meet together to co-create something that is more than mutually beneficial …

From this place we’ll look at working from heart space that dynamically co-creates a change process as being fundamental in effective change and evolution work. We will show you how this offers a place that goes way beyond our understanding of rapport. Indeed it transcends the thoughts that if we shared some common value, belief, outcomes, goals and even purpose we can go anywhere in the relationship.
