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.

A Trance to Remember : Taking Charge of Your Outcomes

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

Beliefs have the power to shape reality, or much more accurately, our perceptions of reality. Let us take for an example someone who is worried or rather anxious. These worries or anxieties  could come from a variety of sources; these may be physical and psychological and/or environmental.

This from me begs  the question what were the conditions, specifically the initial conditions that were at least in part, responsible for all or at least in some part,that particular perception of reality.


Newcastle NLP Hypnotherapy Practice Group

The idea of sensitive dependence on initial conditions is from a branch of science and maths called Chaos theory. Chaos theory is somewhere in between large body physics such as planets movements and the infinitesimal quantum theory which deals with bodies and interactions that are so small as to be almost incomprehensible. It deals very much with interactions on our human perspectives.

Returning to the anxious worrier or even the passive dreamer there are a series of either fortunate or unfortunate events that would seem to have created a proclivity to think and in some senses act in a certain way that can in the case of the anxious worrier and fuel the fires of worry or in the case of the passive dreamer  add water to the flames of any deep realisation; based on and within what previously happened.

By being aware that initial conditions( which we will define) can and do  have a real influence on what can happen  wouldn’t it be useful, wise or even different to have a way of resetting those initial conditions that have the potential to set everything else in motion either for good or for bad.

This March Trance Cafe will explore a methodology to counteract negative beliefs or injunctions very indirectly and then proceed in our processed based way to set the initial conditions, to stack the deck in favour of more positive expectations in a way that is supportive of outcomes and can be easily done-with some effort-by individuals.

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 NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group September 2014

NLP Practice Group Newcastle, Trancecafe, Workshop No Comments »

This first week in September is the re-start of the NLP and Hypnotherapy practice group in Newcastle. After a really nice pause from in August the practice group is freshly rejuvenated ( that may mean me ) and ready to begin again.

This Septembers NLP and Hypnosis practice is going to be a little bit different to the past practice session. Different in one small detail and what is that detail you may be asking?

For something new just this September there is no predefined topic. Sure I have ideas about what to work with on the evening and while I have ideas, its going to be a what is becoming relevant on the evening. So we are doing free flow and refined practice of whatever techniques and processes arise on the evening.

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.

Changing Habits and Updating Identity : Newcastle NLP & Hypnotherapy Practice Group April 2nd

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

Most if not all of us have habits we would like to change. This can be something we do and no longer want to do or it can be something we don’t do and really wish we did. It can also be increasing or decreasing the frequency of a habit.

Part of this often tricky equation is our history. Our identity or who we think we are is pretty much founded in our history. And our history is a collection of our memories and experiences. Some of this is stored in procedural or muscle memory and some in our autobiographical memory.

Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group

When we remember the past we are in essence re-creating our memories. And this has massive amounts to do with our intentions and our ability to imagine. This April the topics of exploration and change are using the NLP Change Personal History pattern and Creating a Compelling Future. We will also use aspects of trance phenomenon to see how easily we can forget our name and use this change our past habits, pre-conceptions and just for fun.

Hypnotic Pacing and Leading : Newcastle Hypnotherapy Practice Group March 5th

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

The concept of pacing and leading is familiar in the world of NLP and Hypnosis and can take a wide variety of forms. This can be physical rapport, the use of certain predicates in language and where we are going this March is using language to pace and lead the hypnotic experience.

We are beginning with using the well known application of linguistic presuppositions to connect and verify experience in our hypnotees and going on to develop and utilise hypnotic responses in an open feedback loop.

Once we have had a practice with a basic structure, one that the script based hypnotist seldom masters, we will move forward to incorporating the kinds of questions that are designed to request an internal subjective exploration with the purpose of creating the dynamic where trance phenomena are undoubtedly experienced. This will be of the nature of arm catalepsy and levitation, ideo motoric responses and utilisation.

This exploration of this Trance Cafe and NLP Cafe is to both learn how do deeper connect with the feedback loop that we and a practice partner will create with specific emphasis on the development, verification and deepening of hypnotic trance phenomena.
