The topic of the last 2018 Hypnotherapy and NLP practice group in Newcastle is Framing and ReFraming. This small exploration is going to focus in detail about how we as people in our life, professional practice and all those tiny in-between steps go about connecting the dots of experience to make a story; Which as Timothy Wilson in Strangers to Ourselves suggests may well be very different to the actuality of unconscious behaviours and ‘personality traits’.

And that story is the fabric of our life, which holds and way too often contorts what we can often accept as reality, truth or illusion, depending on our perceptions and unconscious frames.


Frames and Reframing Hypnotherapy Newcastle

Frames have the tendency to focus a particular kind of thought, perception in both the conscious awareness and the unconscious. If you think about it, a Frame is like a boundary that includes the focus, like foveal vision and outside the artificial boundary of conscious attention, the peripheral vision. All of this effects and affects what we call ‘meaning’.

A change in language can transform our apprehension of the cosmos” Benjamin Lee Whorf

This Exploration will explore how the ‘Frames’ we use in every day life are creating, often unconsciously our reality. More importantly how with effortful and deliberate recognition of such frames and then the deliberate use of more beneficial thinking can, when we experience problems, when we experience discontinuity, when we are being lead by the nose by polarized society be of serious utility in, a gestalt way being OK with personal views, behaviours and being OK to express, non-sheep ways of being human.

So this is going to include stereotypes, evidence frames, linguistic prepositions and I hope a useful, respectful way to recognise and challenge any framing that you feel ( and very importantly don’t feel ) that’s Jungs Feeler function, is accepted or rejected all too easily.

This I Feel will move into ReFraming where there are numerous strategies to explore and potentially redefine meaning with some serious effect on outcome.
