This October the Newcastle Hypnotherapy and NLP Study group is presented by Martin D Thornton.

Martin’s web site opens with the very apt “Warning – My Way Of Working Is Not Everyone’s Cup Of  Tea” and this is a very apt introduction setting the frame for Martin’s way of working with clients.

Martin says that honesty is the best policy. He also says that laughter is the best medicine. Martin puts both of these together: “I’m a plain-speaking Yorkshireman who believes clients need an outsider’s honest view of what’s going wrong in their lives in order to help them put it right, and who de-clutters their minds via their funny bone to help them do it”. Like Oscar Wilde said, “If you want to tell someone the truth, you had better make them laugh, or they’ll kill you.”

Although still guided by the tenets of NLP Martin doesn’t do typical NLP and his methods are now more CBT (Clowning aBout Therapy). As someone who stands out from the crowd, Martin’s style is unlike most practitioners. Known for being daft and saying silly things, he builds rapport by making (most) people laugh and in doing so creates the trust that’s needed to help people to have a better life than they imagine is possible for them. In fact, his greatest enjoyment is watching a client’s attitude change from ultra serious and worried about their future to realising things aren’t that bad and they can cope with whatever life throws at them.

Martin is blessed with a truly warped mind (his clients say he is crazier than they are) and that is why Martin sees things from a very different perspective, which he then reflect back using humour – sometimes droll and dry and sometimes slapstick (how many therapists do you know behave like a silverback gorilla or sing to their clients?).

Get up close an personal with the creator of SilverBack Coaching ( TM ) [ Martin looks like a Silver Back Gorilla ] and bring your problems and worries along for a full on and experiential adventure of the mind and body that may well lead you to some gut wrenching laughter and a very different view of that old problem.
