Presentation Skills Training Course

Presentation skills – some people just seem have them… don’t they?

Maybe you can recall a time when you witnessed a perfectly seamless, completely engaging and ‘fully in control’ public speaker deliver their message to an enthusiastic and interested audience.

At the same time, how much did you wonder at what it is specifically about what they do that means an audience is right there in the palm of their hand? Surely it’s a question of talent… isn’t it? You’ve either got it, or you haven’t…?

The most highly skilled public speakers know that it’s not just about confidence and getting all the right messages in the right order. This practical training will equip you with the knowledge and skills to become an exceptional public speaker.

Use of language, effective use of the space, stage presence, controlling your emotional state and techniques which further engage you with your audience are just a selection of the skills you can expect to develop during this course.

Course facilitators Nigel Hetherington and Ruth Hindmarsh (Creative Momentum) with their combined experience and expertise in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, theatre and hypnosis look forward to delivering this unique and highly practical training which promises to transform all your future presentations!

Specifically you will be learning how to :

  • Enhance your charisma
  • Engage your audience
  • Use language more affectively
  • Feel more at east presenting
  • Enhance your presenting state

What you will not get from this training :

  • Classroom style lecturing
  • Death by powerpoint

What you will gain from attending Excellent Presentations Skills :

  • Be more able to talk from your heart and your head
  • Lots of experience presenting
  • Feedback and real coaching
  • Confident stage presence

Just imagine what kinds of difference it will make in your life when you can present with excellence. By being in the right frame of mind and body presentation and connection with your audience become easy, of course this takes practice; the right kind of practice.

Excellent Presentations Skills over four days will immerse you in the right kind of practice to nurture a very specific skill set.

Feeling safe open and connected allows us to get the right balance of sincerity, seriousness and playfulness into our presentations. We are able to handle awkward questions and offer back honest integral answers.

Trauma Resolution Newcastle Workshop Training Using Eye Movement Integration Plus

A Trauma Resolution Workshop by consultant Newcastle hypnotherapist Nigel Hetherington for Therapists, Counsellors,  Hypnotherapists, Social Workers, Doctors, Nurses, Police and all People Helpers working with client trauma. Using Eye Movement Integration and Generative Change Techniques. A Brief Therapy and Solution Focused approach to working with Trauma. This workshop run by Nigel Hetherington takes place in Newcastle upon Tyne, October 13-14 and is excellent value at only £80.

I, myself, cannot recommend this training highly enough. I found that it took my confidence and competence of using EMI to a totally new level and not just for trauma. The last workshop in London was attended by many of my colleagues trained at the Quest Institute, and the positive feedback on our forum afterwards was quite amazing!

Cathy Simmons – Cognitive Hypnotherapist

NLP Eye Movement Integration, developed by Steve and Connirae Andreas is one of the most effective and content free way of helping your clients dissolve the terrible and unwanted emotions related to trauma.

Eye Movement Integration is a very brief and content free process for resolving psychological traumas such as PTSD, intrusive memories, shame, guilt and other kinds of undesirable emotional and identity imprints.

This course offers so much even if, as I had, you’ve already learnt and used basic EMI techniques. It is exceptionally well presented and gives a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of EMI, including simple explanations of how and why it works. But in combining EMI and Time Line techniques it offers a new and extraordinarily effective procedure for the resolution of many types of symptom that can be linked to traumatic experience.

Nick Rolfe – Professional Change Worker

EMI is really quite easy to learn and use.  As a counsellor, therapist or anyone who is working with client trauma, you want proven and recognised ways to help your clients out of the black emotional cloud of pain and suffering as rapidly and as ecologically as possible.  Your clients are typically coming to see you because they are experiencing some form of emotional pain. All of the emotional states discussed above can be successfully treated and neutralised with Eye Movement Integration.

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!

EMI Plus training workshop is held in Jesmond Dene Conference Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne

Humour In Therapy & Coaching Workshop : Newcastle April 21-22

Therapists, Counsellors, Hypnotherapists and all Professional Change Workers seem to me to require additional, unusual and precise methods. Having some structural and specialist methods to assist clients in creating the states that can honestly foster true and meaningful change in their life is important. Why?

Many change professionals become overly familiar with one or two techniques which will create positive changes for a high proportion of clients. When these methods fail more often than not the therapist becomes stuck and this is highly avoidable by adding some special strings to your bow.

Humour In Therapy Coaching DVD

And this workshop is not for everyone. Some counsellors, NLP’s and therapists will find this kind of safe, structural and humour based approach immoral, disrespectful or dangerous. And for those people they are dead right.

For the more creative, smart and open to experience a powerful change tool this may be the bow string you can rely on when the shot is a tricky one. Come and learn and experience 1:1 how Phil Jeremiah IV creates the states of change others can’t.

Humour in Therapy and Coaching is a two day workshop where you will get the inside structure of how Phil goes about his change work.

Workshop April 21-22 Newcastle upon Tyne

Costs £199 including a free copy of Humour In Therapy & Coaching 6 DVD set.

Phil will facilitate a co-created experience and over two days give you a firm and well established foundation of the the structure of his work with two days of experiential training.

Phill Jeremiah’s works using humour in change work and therapy is  client centred  often irrelevant and a seriously humorous way of working.

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 …

Improvisation Workshop – October 2011 : Nigel Hetherington

Improvisation is an essential life skill.

We all live in a time, our time,  where the ability to rapidly adapt to circumstances and be our playful and congruent selves is not just a requirement but a necessity. At least it is if we want to live particularly meaningful lives. This is a suggestion, an invitation, to one way of being more comfortable with who we are, who be are becoming and how we really want to be in our world.

When our regular and time worn patterns no longer serve us as best as they could, and we recognise this and wish for new and different ways of being, here is one possible solution. It is also guaranteed to be a great deal of fun.

Improvisation and improvising can often lead us into new pastures. We can adopt a new or different persona that is enabling and freeing. New pastures may not always be what we expect yet at the same time it really is a move away from our old and staid patterns of behaviour. A positive move towards a more congruent and meaningful way of being. I think you know and I hope it is a deep knowing, that when the time is right for you to make a real shift. A step or two in the right direction to change something or awake something that we recognise has been snoozing all too long, too comfortably …

When you are looking to make a new move, get out of that old, limiting comfort zone and open up a little more to a real experience, wouldn’t you really want to make that move in a way that promotes and expresses a ‘you’ that opens your heart in both a playful and honest way?

If you are on board so far, then here is an invitation to come along and play … Play in a two day workshop that combines improvisation, coaching and personal growth. In a way that is generative for personal development and additionally for therapists, elements that will enhance your client work by out of the norm ways of directing change.

A safe, inclusive and co-supportive workshop where you are free to engage and build your confidence while you experience and develop some new and additional behaviours that get you out of those old comfort zones, and creates space with an accent on a shiny new you.

Facilitated by myself and Ruth Hindmarsh. Me and Ruth, described as a ‘force of nature’ ( this is accurate ) will facilitate a wholly transformative workshop experience, where participants can develop greatly increased playfulness and self confidence with a real and honest participation in self directed, meaningful personal evolution. And again, this is guaranteed to be fun!

When : October 1st – October 2nd

Venue : Fitness Training Consortium : Newcastle : Stepney Bank

Cost : £ 70 for two full days ( 9.30-5.30 )

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.
