Newcastle NLP Hypnotherapy Training : Post Hypnotic Resources

An arm catalepsy induction and utilisation using what can be termed in Newcastle NLP or North East Hypnosis as Complex Equivalence or the meanings we make from an experience with altered states. Additional ways to consider these additional aspects of ourselves is the process of chaining real and available resources into our future. We can also regard this as anchoring with future pacing with post hypnotic suggestion.


NLP Perspectives On & In & Through Time

How we perceive time as individuals, cultures and perhaps integral societies can be a fascinating topic of exploration. In NLP we are familiar with the categories of ‘in time’, ‘through time’ and ‘in between time’ [ Christina Hall ].

Metaphorically time is a substance. We have some amount of time, we are running out of time, we have plenty of time.

We can use this time substance to organise our experience and even experience our experience, and maybe much more! Here is a really excellent animation exploring a wide range of perspectives about time. Well worth watching.


Hypnotherapist Weight Loss And The Cost

Something that continues to amaze me in the field of professional hypnotherapy is transparency of fees.

During a recent FaceBook discussion I invited hypnotherapists to explain why some have different fees for different services. For example one hypnotherapist may charge £150 for a stop smoking session and the same hypnotherapist may charge £75 for phobia cures.

Working as a clinical hypnotherapist I don’t understand why there is a difference. One well known therapist, who was brave enough to leave a comment, stated that their students, having graduated in NLP ( I assume a seven day training ), some time lines therapy ( NLP Jargon that no one outside of NLP has heard of never mind understands ) and a bit of hypnosis should charge a MINIMUM £150 per hour. I wonder how many people ‘sold’ on such get rich quick schemes actually see any clients at all?

For me this comes down to a well earned experiential qualification and has nothing to do with some quickly attained qualification. It’s like learning to drive in 7 days, the individual can pass an exam and yet this does not necessarily make barely competent drivers or people any where near able to share their driving experience to teach or coach another person. It is the very bare minimum.

My question was ( and this specific individual refused to comment but did invite me to book a consultation to find out ) and is “Why do some therapists refuse to make their charges and fees transparent to the people”, The exact people who will want to book their services? Why not make charges completely transparent to the general public at large?

A dentist fees are transparent, and accountants fees are transparent and so are a personal trainers. So why do so many hypnotherapists choose to make their fees secret to the public and create an unnecessarily complicated process for potential clients to have to go through.

Hypnotherapists are not sales professionals so why act in this way?

Hypnotherapists in the Noth East and Newcastle, please, continue to give this credible alternative health profession a good name and advertise your fees to your potential clients.

In the interrest of transparency, me fee is £95 for a two hour session.

A quick internet search of hypnotherapists in the Noth East will reveal precious few advertise their fees. So this is an invitation for all therepists especially in the North East to comment to this post and share you fees with the general public.

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 Time Line – Manifesting A Worthy Future – Part Two

Here is the second of three parts of how to do a NLP Time Line. This was recorded at the Newcastle Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma training in 2009 with one of the attendees. This is a direct follow on from the first video.

Clinical Hypnosis training in the North East of England and Newcastle starts in January and August each year.

Time Line – NLP – Manifesting A Worthy Future

Time Lines in terms of NLP, Future Orientation in terms of Goal Setting and Achieving, Coaching Future Pacing … All of these activities have one absolutely fundamental thing in common! Future Planning / Future Pacing!

One of the most common mistakes Coaches ( even pretty good ones ), Therapists and Hypnotherapists to name but a few don’t include as part of dynamic and generative change processes is future pacing. This means to ‘pretend’, ‘imagine’ and ‘realise’ is to go into the future and look back – Having already got the ‘Goal’ … and … powerfully linked this to the real underlying motivations and desires.

One of my mentors Dr. Christina Hall ( See Salad Training ) has educated me very well in terms of what NLP Time Lines absolutely must include. Here is Part one of three of how to do Time Lines. This was filmed during last years Hypnotherapy Diploma Training. This is my take on Chris’ version of Time Lines and as far as I know it is by far the most effective.
