Hypnosis – Language & IdeoDynamics : NLP Newcastle Practice Group

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

As you start to read this post what else are you consciously aware of? I wonder if you noticed you eyes move left to right in the little saccades that they do? Perhaps you are or you aren’t thinking about that now? If you weren’t do you know what were you thinking of as you continue to read? How is your attention shifting?

OK, this months Trance Cafe. March 1st, is an exploration and understanding of some of the aspects of hypnotic language. The ideas is to build up, through practice an understanding of how to use hypnotic language to focus attention and then utilise these aspects to assist people ( your clients ) into altered states of awareness.


Newcastle NLP Practice Group

Being in an altered state of awareness can open up and access unconscious resources, feel good and develop your own technique.

Specifically we will be exploring the esoterically named ( by Erickson and Rossi ) Ideo-Dynamic suggestions that along with some pretty cool question styles can guide people to awareness of movement, sensations, thoughts and emotions.

We will also be building up a simple set of steps that when combined with conscious – unconscious splitting, as an induction, can provide an easy to use way to assist your client ( and give you direct feedback ) into trance.

In principle how to create a dynamic space where insights, resources and new perspectives can grow and evolve.

Hypnosis for Working with Habits and Parts : Newcastle NLP Practice Group

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

Throughout life we have been learning and massing a huge amount of habits. A habit is something we can do in a certain situation with practically no conscious thought. We learn habits through repetition over time.

In change work the concept of ‘parts’ is often used to describe a specific aspect of our personality. These aspects can be emotional, behavioral or thoughts which can be considered as aspects of who we are, aspects of our personality.


Newcastle Hypnotherapy Practice Group

This cafe we will be exploring a variety of ways of working with parts to enhance or change behaviors.

It is a profoundly erroneous truism, repeated by all copy-books and by eminent people when they are making speeches, that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing. The precise opposite is the case. Civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking about them. Operations of thought are like cavalry charges in a battle — they are strictly limited in number, they require fresh horses, and must only be made at decisive moments.” – Alfred North Whithead

I don’t think we actually fully unlearn any of the habits we amass over our life time. What seems to happen is an old habit is overlaid by a new and more functionally appropriate one. By exploring the sequence of steps of a habit we will intend to firstly make this conscious, to make the habit ‘hot’ and move forward to explore several ways in which we can utilise ( or try to ) the end payoff.

Some ways of working can include:

  • Voice Dialogue
  • Ideo-Motoric Movement
  • Gestalt Tactics
  • Time Distortion

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.

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!

Thresholding Your Futures : Newcastle Hypnotherapy and NLP Practice Group : 4th February

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

In this process I am borrowing on the Buddhist and Taoist idea of a middle road and this means balance. Balance in our thoughts and feelings and with our actions. This process can be very useful when planning a honest and realistic outcome or when facing challenging or difficult times such as when in the process of stopping some problem behaviour. Equally useful and very relevant to moving on from an unforgiving past. We are changing thresholds.

The terms threshold is very simple to understand. Threshold means at some predetermined state ( a value or position ) something happens or doesn’t happen. It’s easy to understand this in terms of the heating system in your home. Usually some temperature is set, say 14 degrees, where the heating comes on if the temperature is below the set point, here 14 degrees and switches off above 14 degrees. So in this instance sustaining a certain temperature.

NLP Newcastle Practice Group

Another example, staying with temperature, is when water temperature reaches 0 degrees ice begins to form. 100 degrees and water evaporates. These are state changes caused by temperature, cold and hot.

Thresholding processes are found in NLP specifically in this instance the two that are ‘designed’ to either make something so pleasurable  or horrible that through association it ‘blows out’ its appeal or revulsion. Another one makes something so awful that it becomes awful for ever. Neurologically these two approaches are working with the pleasure ( to burn out ) and pain ( to burn in ) neural circuitry.

Open-ended and general we will use hypnotherapy to guide our clients in resetting thresholds to re-experience thoughts, feelings and actions then using the power of ‘maybe’ form a more honest integration as a middle, more balanced path, which can help heal and ease the past or modulate and centre our futures.

Hypnotic Parts Integration : Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group 3rd December 2014

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

Parts work in hypnotherapy is a well know and highly effective way to reframe, resolve and enable a wide variety of behaviours.

A common applications of parts work include resolving problem behaviours, creating and accessing new behaviours and changing thinking patterns to more enabling thinking patterns. All of these in some way can be thought of as both re-framing, re-meaning and integration.

Integration can mean amalgamation, incorporation, unification, merger, fusing, or blending. This may not be what we really require! Perhaps we actually mean sublimation.



When seemingly competing parts are ‘integrated’ into a larger system there can be a diffusion and effective disappearance of those parts into a new whole. But what about the inherent value in both of those parts? Is there a potentially more holistic and system valuable way to do parts work?

When both aspects of competing parts are sublimated and included into a whole, they retain their individual properties and learn to work either together or apart from each other as situations dictate.

The process offered at the December cafe is a physicality hypnotic parts sublimation. This is a very neat process I learned from Steve Gilligan some years ago and will be appropriate for a wide variety of problem behaviours, problem thinking, worry and as well improving behaviours.

Newcastle Hypnotherapy and NLP Practice Group : November 2014

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

Conversational Hypnosis

When I watch and see someone demonstrate a highly developed skill it can look like an effortless display. The exemplars words and ‘techniques’ flow, they respond to what is happening and they are not simply regurgitating some script or procedure. Though at one point it is highly likely they were doing just that.

And we all know the kind of effortless display I am writing about and your are considering at this time, quite certainly at one time, required a great deal of effort, lots of practice and sweat to appear as the polished skill we can witness.

Conversational Hypnosis - Newcastle Hypnotherapy Practice Group

The topic for November is Conversational Hypnosis. Hypnosis as a feedback loop, Hypnosis as a way of leading and utilising experience.

This is based in a rather old, yet excellent, Stephen Brooks series of audio CD’s on hypnosis and something from Igor Ledochowski where the content is in essence very much the same though with some really useful process oriented structures to make for a conscious structure kind of learning.

Newcastle Hypnotherapy and NLP Practice Group : October 2014

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

As Autumn, a season of wonderful change, comes to visit once more I want to explore one of the methods or meta-change models the Lankton’s ‘modelled’ from Erickson.

With a surprisingly simple six step format, this month we will practice both the structure and the content. Inside of this there will be language patterns and themes to fill the content details of each contextual step.


Newcastle NLP Practice Group

 

Knowing and having a variety of meta structures to use in any change work ( not limited to NLP or Hypnotherapy ) is greatly valuable in change work.

This month we will explore a specific meta-structure by practising a variety of language patterns within the meta-structure. The idea being we can all learn without knowing exactly what is being learned and reflecting this way after practice ensure the meta-pattern has been internalised with a future orientated direction.

Clean Space : Metaphors to Change – Newcastle Hypnotherapy and NLP Practice Group July 2nd

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

This July at the Trance Cafe, Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy practice group is going to be super! My good friend and colleague Holly Kobayashi will be facilitating an evenings exploration in Clean Space.

As always at the Trance Cafe this will be a practical evening where you will get real experience and take home the process for personal and professional use with your clients.

NLP Practice Group in Newcastle upon Tyne

Clean Space is the late David Grove’s work which follows on from Clean Language. This is an exceptionally useful process, something I have really benefited from on several occasions. The idea and the process is deceptively simple and often can provide the crucial experience ( and it is an experience ) to shape beneficial change.

Holly is an exceptional agent of change. In her work she is consistently helping people to move out of what may seem like really intractable problems with her application in her therapeutic clinical work. What is particularly relevant here is you will get the latest developments and insights from Holly who is right at the front line of working with very challenging cases.

You can find out more about Yogini Holly, her therapies and Yoga classes at her web page The Mind Spa.

Critical Voice : Problems to Solutions – Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group June 4th

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

Practically everybody talks to themselves on a regular basis. This for many is the staple stuff of thought and thinking. Sometimes we are talking away to ourselves and we lose connection to the outside world. Other times we can be talking away and scaring ourselves or making ourself anxious.

We all have internal chatter and it can be both a help and a hindrance. When it’s really problematic and hurtful the chances are the way we speak to ourselves and the words we use, we honestly wouldn’t speak to another human being in that way. So why speak to yourself in any way that is unhelpful or hurtful?

Hypnotherapy Newcastle Critical Voice

Conversely our internal chatter can be reassuring and helpful. We can reason out possible solutions from problems.

This practice group will offer a variety of ways I work with people who have problematic internal dialogue using a variety of hypnosis and NLP methods to connect with that voice and attempt to encourage it’s better intentions and alter old problematic ways of talking to yourself.
