Forgetting and Remembering on Event Horizons : Newcastle NLP Practice Group : 1st June

Trancecafe No Comments »

 

Have you ever had the experience of walking through a doorway, into a room and then pausing and having literally no idea why you are in this room? Of course you have! This has happened to me many times. It brings a certain facial expression of lowered eyebrows and a vacant gaze as I realise I don’t really know what I am doing there.

This of course is a common experience and has been studied in depth by Radvansky. In his paper ‘Across the Event Horizon’ there is a discussion about what happens in terms of forgetting and remembering as we cross a threshold or ‘Event Horizons’ which are basically doorways.

 

Event Horizon NLP Newcastle

 

This will be coupled with other interesting research by Weick regarding how people suffering from anxiety can have a tendency to walk off to one side ( as a result of one over active hemisphere ) as well as ideas from Bagua Zhang.

The idea of this months practice group is to turn this into a hypnotic process to both let go of certain thoughts or behaviours ( perhaps anxieties ) and reinforce other qualities such as compassion or openness.

And remember this June is the last Trance Cafe until August later in the year. Hope to see you there in creating a new process.

Psychological Parts Work : Newcastle Hypnotherapy Practice Group : 4th May

Trancecafe No Comments »

Enjoying the recent bank holiday there has been some wildly mixed weather. Clouds, rain, sun and wind in great abundance. It’s been warm, cold and almost tepid; All indication that a mixed bag of UK spring is living up to expectations. Lawns, bushes and flowers create a patchwork of colours and I can think about all of this.

By categorising and labelling my experiences I go about the task of filtering and segmenting my direct experience and practically all of this is automatic and habitual. Somewhere in my brain there is the assemblage of colour, shapes and feelings that are integrated without conscious process and offer, to me, my experience of the moment.

The idea of ‘parts’ or our symphony of experiences ( thoughts, feelings, movements and emotions ) can be very useful in terms of change work. Parts serve purposes or a purpose that was necessary earlier in life and has become a habit.

Newcastle NLP

We can use the ‘idea’ of parts to help transform behaviours that would seem to no longer serve us well in certain contexts. And we can use parts to enhance or improve behaviours in other areas of life. Psychological parts is a very open possibility type of hypnotic process. Some ways to work with ‘parts’ will follow and the idea for the evening is to explore some of these.

  • Parts for behaviour and their intentions
  • Chakras as ways of symbolising intentional change
  • NeuroAnatomy such as hypothalamus
  • Jungian archtypes as aspects of our unconscious
  • Multiple perspectival positions

Nurturing Kindfulness : Newcastle NLP Practice Group : April 6th

NLP Practice Group, NLP Practice Group Newcastle, Trancecafe No Comments »

Being kind to ourself and to others may be one of the most useful human experiences that helps us both recognise our shared human nature ( Kind ) and help us connect our actions to supporting and being there for our fellows with our natural propensity to do good ( Kind ).

This practice group will explore what kindfullness ( the state of being kind ) means individually and why its a good thing to have access to the right kind of kindfullness much more of the time.




 

So the idea for the evening is to have an exploration into how we do represent the timeless and eternal in our own inner world with the purpose of linking this for ourselves to our kindfulness state. Now we are going to require some personal experiences of being kind and receiving kindness from others to map those particular submodalities.

Having some representations of kindness, an anchor to our representation of  timelessness we will explore how our attention is either drawn or captured ( there seems to me three modes of this ) as a representation and ecologically engage all three structures as a kind of yin and yang multiplicity.

Time permitting we may also explore how the five poisons can prevent kindfull actions and look to solutions as appropriate.

NLP Practice Group Newcastle : Wednesday 2nd March 2016

Trancecafe No Comments »

The NLP & Hypnotherapy Practice group topics this March will be decided and shaped on the night!

There will be some exploration of how we can construct and deconstruct the useful and sometimes unhelpful aspects of our ‘identity’ that we occasionally convince ourself that are true. Utilising some aspects of ‘priming’ from Kahneman & Tversky’ work we will explore how certain statements and their seemingly innocent order can have a stunning effect.

We will then integrate this into what is selected and shaped on the evening with the intention of creating new paths and ways of thinking.

The First Step In Avoiding A Trap … NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group : 3rd February 2016

Hypnotherapy Practice Group Newcastle, NLP Practice Group, NLP Practice Group Newcastle, Trancecafe No Comments »

Its the first Trance Cafe of 2016 and so wishing you a belated happy New Year with lots of wonderful experiences to come.

For the February practice evening I want to explore some behavioural patterns that we have learned and seem to likely play out unconsciously. Sometimes, most times, our unconscious behaviour serves us really well, occasionally it doesn’t.

If our thoughts and behaviours are largely unconscious, how can we review and update what we perceive as problematic ‘responses’ in a certain context? This will include some explorations of ‘patterns’, how we can incorporate new learnings and ‘utilising’ these patterns to incorporate useful differences in new ways.

Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group

All this will naturally include practising aspects of hypnosis, inductions and change process with a sprinkling of neurology and psychology. Perhaps!

Embodied Self-Awareness : Newcastle NLP & Hypnotherapy Practice Group : 4th November : Mr & Mrs Kobayashi

Workshop No Comments »

This coming November we are in for a real treat because two skilled, talented and knowledgeable people are co-presenting an exploration into Embodied Self Awareness. Having recently participated in a workshop by Mark Walsh, Holly and Tristan Kobayashi are sharing their learnings.

I am very excited and enthused to have Holly and Tristan teaching this embodied yoga. Here is Holly explaining what this Trance Cafe is all about.


Newcastle Hypnosis Practice Group

“In this workshop we will be gaining embodied self-awareness – understanding our attitudes, personality and lifestyles via kinaesthetic knowledge.

We will use the body to physically experience themes such as ‘letting go; being strong; applying effort’ to discover how you react to each and what this tells you about yourself.

It is based on Mark Walsh’s Emboddied Yoga, which he states is:
- “a mindfulness based, psychologically deep, rational Western approach

- an individually adapted, social, self-directed educational and creative approach

- an emphasis on insight into how you are leading your life and practical ways to change that through the body

- transferable skills for life (not a short holiday from life that actually supports unhealthy patterns by making them tolerable)

- integration of emotions, language, social interaction and technology (rather than pretending feelings, other people and the modern world, don’t exist)”

(Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move easily in. This is suitable for everyone, as all physical postures can be adapted.)

Exploring Aspects of ‘Hypnosis Without Trance’ with Julie Brown

Uncategorized No Comments »

My good friend and colleague Julie Brown has attended a recent James Tripp ‘Hypnosis without Trance’ boot camp and Julie will be delivering what can be described as inspiring this coming Wednesdays evenings Trance Cafe to explore reality as we know it, or think we do …..

I am very excited about this! Firstly because this is Julies first Trance Cafe and much more because Julie is an excellent facilitator. And I for one am seriously looking forward to this to be learning lots of new and complementary ways of exploring hypnosis.

Julie will be facilitating ways we can be discovering how to more adeptly be use language and communication to:

Direct Attention
Lead Cognition
Seed Ideas

This is for the purpose of leading clients into an altered state of reality using non verbal communication and hypnotic inductions delivered and explored in ways easy for you to go ( in … ) and practice in this interactive evening.

Julie will be inviting you to remove any personal investment involved with an outcome or goal so there is a process with the aim of allowing you to fully enjoy the experience of the moment as it happens.

So Julie is saying “I am curiously wondering if you all are able to give yourself permission to allow yourselves to fully immerse into the evening while noticing your own individual unique perception of the emerging experiences. I very much look forward to experiencing the evening with you.”

Hope you can make this practice group with Julie, who will be sharing lots of tools and techniques that you can use in a whole bunch of way.

Attachment and Letting Go : 3rd June – Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group

Hypnotherapy Practice Group Newcastle, NLP Practice Group Newcastle No Comments »

ATTACHMENT : PRISON OR PARADISE?

As we journey through our life we naturally experience both things we want and things we want to avoid. This is perfectly normal and healthy. A ‘thing’ in this context could be an experience like a feeling, a thought or action or some material objects.

Many of us have ( or have not ) found out perfect partner, perfect friends, perfect job or perfect home. This is indeed a wonderful world we live with, so much to be enjoyed ( or avoided ) as to the extent our happiness, well-being and inner bliss can come to overly rely on other sources for what is essentially our peace of mind.


Hypnotherapy and Coaching Newcastle

Problems can surface when we do lose ‘things’ and when we simply can’t have others, that is, when there is strong attachment involved which has the potential to be a self made prison and torture chamber.

This translates to our experiencing desires and losses painfully and as such one of the major problems to overcome in life are our attachments that ultimately are barriers to freedom and a mostly peaceful state of mind.

THIS MODULE WE WILL BE EXPLORING methods and practices that can help deal with problem attachments in a variety of ways.

Time to Appreciate Time Lines as Future Resources – 6th May : Newcastle NLP Practice Group

Trancecafe No Comments »

Just about everyone I know sometimes thinks about the future and what kind of a future they would really want to have. I am specifically making reference to a future where there is a majority or at least a bias towards good times, good experiences and possibly even more, the belief, an anticipation where such a future is available and not solely dependent on the past or even present circumstance.

We have all to a relative extent experienced challenging times, possibly times when we have despaired, thought we would fail or even worse. Yet here we are, bruised, maybe a bit battered, worse for where and yet here we are. Going forward in some way.


Newcastle NLP Practice Group

This May Trance Cafe, Hypnotherapy Newcastle NLP Practice Group will use Time Lines from our past to seed and resource our futures to better help and access our strengths in the troubled times as well as the good.

An old favourite, very short story, I like is about planting trees.

On old woman was planting tree seeds when someone came up to her and asked. “Why are you planting those tree seeds when you will never live to see them grow to more than saplings at best?” The old woman without words, smiling, replied with a glance, gesturing towards her children and her children’s children.”

This Trance / NLP Cafe is making use of both your past and a solution ( not problem focused ) but solution focused orientation to the future.

Exploiting Strengths Shamelessly in Change Work : April 1st 2015

Hypnotherapy Practice Group Newcastle, Trancecafe No Comments »

When I am working with clients, who are usually coming to see me for problem resolution, one aspect of the work I do is discovering where and in what contexts my clients have real competencies and where, even in the smallest instance, they are doing good.

It’s not always that easy for people who are feeling seemingly insurmountable problems to notice or realise parts of their life where they are competent and doing good because their focus is their problems. A tight focus can have a tendency to obscure and minimise everything else that is available in terms of feelings, thoughts, past and current experience.



One of my friends and mentors Harold often jokes that when his father was in the process of ‘finding him a job’ in his late teens, early 20′s, his father got him that job working in a psychiatric hospital. His father saying ‘the best way to hide a tree is to put it in a forest.’

One of the many talents Harold has which contribute to making him an exceptionally effective therapist is to be unconventional in some of his approaches when he works with his clients. Harold pretty much always sees the good in people and with precision will utilise this, even the smallest, competency as a basis for change and helping his clients realise by themselves, they can and they do have the capacity to make beneficial changes.

This Trance Cafe will be exploring how when people are stuck or recycling the content and meaning of their problems, their experience and perceptions are often confined within quite a tight frame or container and with emphasis, what methods are available to reconnect our clients to their competencies.

Working as a therapist or coach one of our jobs is to ‘out frame’ a problem context and discover or more correctly uncover those processes within a much larger frame that is in some sense a strategy, ready to offer new content within the same or highly parallel frame.

Or having discovered competencies and skills explore ways to map these processes as resources to become consciously available and active in perceived problem situations. This can be accurately described as partitioning and then integration.
