I felt helpless and ineffective as a therapist working and helping serious trauma clients until I discovered a process based way I could really affect positive change in those intractable cases.

I recall one specific client who had the dreadful and unfortunate experience of losing their partner some eight years previous. They had had numerous counselling experiences, tried hypnotherapy and even psychotherapy. I found their story was so very sad, deeply moving and extremely depressing to listen to.

This was in 2005 when I started working as a full time therapist and was working from a hired therapy room in Newcastle city centre. I had recently qualified as a hypnotherapist and was using a combination of NLP and Hypnotherapy in my client work.

All of the techniques I attempted had little effect. In part this was due to my lack of experience and in part because they were so embroiled and rehearsed in their story. It was obvious they were in a lots of physical and psychological pain but I was thwarted at every turn. I guess they had told their sad story to every therapist they spoke to and in each retelling they became more and more sad, more and more remorseful and more and more depressed. I desperately wanted to help but I really could not get through. They stayed in a state of deep loss and grief and I really felt helpless to help.

Roll the clock forward towards the end of 2009. I worked with a man who had lost his daughter. Now as far as I can see there is probably no worse event than a parent losing their child – this is not the natural order of things.

Well this man lost his daughter some 10 years previous and similarly had seen therapists of all varieties; hypnotherpaists, CBT, counselling you name it. They held a great deal of grief and loss as you would expect and they were embroilled in their story. Of course they were, losing a child would decimate most people.

This time I was somewhat more experienced in how I work with clients that have experienced serious trauma and after a real large chunk of time have not moved on because they could not let go. I explained what I was going to do and that was listen to his story until I understood he was feeling his worst sense of loss and that I would ask questions so that he would really be feeling his loss. I also explained why I would do this and what I would do as a result.

Once we were both clear what I would do and why. I asked if he was willing to explore this with me and that he was OK with me stopping his story so I could do my very best to work on the feelings that were ultimately the serious problem. He agreed. In this case it is very important to offer an explanation of why I was going to do what I was going to do.

Within that two hour session, for him, a miracle happened. The burden of guilt and loss lifted in a way that was palpable and immediate. The next session I could use time line re-patterning – specifically future orientated and that man felt the freedom to live and be with his partner much more fully in a way that he has not experienced in all that time since losing his daughter. I felt incredibly good in that I had helped this man to open up to the rest of his life in a positive way and I did this without having to have him recount a painful and depressive story in just two sessions that amount to four hours.

The differences in how I was working in 2005 to how I was working in 2009 with serious client trauma was profound. I now had a very simple and robust set of process tools. I had now learned to explain or frame why I was going to respectfully interrupt his story and what I would be doing and how he could respond to respond to this process.

With a strong set of process tools that have little to do with the content of personal trauma I have a great deal of choice and options as to how I can best work with serious trauma clients.

I had moved from the classical counselling orientation or inexperienced NLP or hypnotherapist and their specific options to being able to both frame and utilise one of the most robust and rapid ways of helping clients overcome deep trauma.

NLP Practitioner Edinburgh and Newcastle 2014

An NLP Practitioner training course is one of many ways to help people improve their life. This has everything to do with our psychology and perception of how much influence we have in given situations.

Avoiding the absurd and ridiculous claims of NLP practitioners being able to master any emotional state, being able to cure phobias in minutes and never feeling stress again, this course aims to offer the tools and techniques to have a much more fun and engaging life. Starting with you.

I joined the NLP practitioner course as a way to extend my therapy skills to help others make changes in their lives. It gave me all the additional skills I wanted and more. I feel I am a much better therapist, helping people create their own meaningful solutions much more quickly.”

NLP Practitioner training in Newcastle offers much more than ‘soft skills’ in terms of being more able to manage ( not control ) our personal psychology and perspectives in life. This offers principles, the techniques and ways of genuinely, changing our psychological make up, to enhance and live life in deeper ways.

It also was one of the most fun and important 6 months of my life. Nigel’s teaching is fascinating, extremely well explained and absolutely hilarious. I spent the training weekends laughing, enjoying myself immensely and learning a huge amount.

Of course this requires application and practice. There are lots of techniques and tools to make communication more relevant and honest, there is a real accent on having fun during learning because the old classroom style is dead and the way forward is to incorporate joy in learning and making that learning totally practical in day to day living well.

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

My personal take on NLP is that it can, often in powerful ways, help individuals to change HOW we perceive and think about goals and problems in life. NLP Techniques offer a way to better realise your goals and outcomes. Unlike the Secret, this actually takes work and effort. This training is experiential by nature.

The Accent on NLP Course Training

Most of peoples stresses and frustrations come from the interpretation and psychology of our situations. Mostly none of the life stressors actually arise from physical situations. NLP offers well proven and time based techniques that can help you sort your self out … and … create some really positive change.

The NLP techniques create and shape new and additional ways of perceiving life. This is ideally suited to anyone who wants to expand their capabilities as a change worker, coach or professional service provider.

These trainings are for people who want or need to change how you think and act in the world. The accent is fundamentally on you being able to better act and respond in a world of rapidly changing themes.

The changes you want to realise will fundamentally begin with you.”

James Tripp Newcastle : Art of Transformational Change with Conversation

One the real developers in change work James Tripp is coming to Newcastle in November to offer his latest work in an excellent two day training in ‘Transformational Conversation’.

Booking Closes November 2nd

In James’ latest video offering he discusses the ART of transformation. This is at the fore front of current and powerful practical changer work. Anyone that is seriously interested in what it takes to really transform, from a centre of mutual consent, by way of change work, you need to check James’ latest video.

Before That I Want to Share a Little Story

In around 2007 I was planning on delivering a group training for a local interest group in Newcastle. What was planned to be a technical offering to a group of NLPEMI turned out to be a 1:1 demonstration of EMI ( eye movement integration technique ) where the group of about 40 people watched a 1:1 session.

Inside of this group, one wonderfully brave person chose to be a demonstration subject to show the first moves. This turned out to be a full demonstration of a process where this brave soul allowed me to facilitate moving through aspects of trauma ( known to many others in the group ) as a full session of an hour and 25 minutes.

They moved through past trauma and were, on the evening completely unable to re-access the original problem states. They could re-access the memory imprints yet without the negative emotion.

It was, in my opinion, a fantastic demonstration of the process, by way of inability to access the problem states. And in some perspective it was a disaster in that time constraints did not allow for the group to explore the techniques.

Following on from this, one person, approached me, and demanded, before they use this, the research that this process or technique had statistical evidential back up.

I responded ( I think reasonably stated ) you have just seen it. They seemed to disregard everything they has just witnessed, in favour of some statistics. I can’t speak for James, I can speak for myself in that, I am interested in what works, what and how I do what I do has nothing to do with statistics. It has everything to do with how I do what I do. You are not a statistic.

If this is you then this training really is not for you. Stop reading and enjoy your time in other ways.
