Front Line Skills : Advanced Hypnotherapy & Therapist Training : Nigel Hetherington

December 4, 2011

An advanced course for practising hypnotherapists, therapists, counsellors and people helpers who want the solid skills that can not only really benefit your clients but give you an experiential and procedural edge over other therapists and an even greater range of flexible meta skills you can employ in your everyday practice as well as your life. Next course begins February 2012 Newcastle upon Tyne.

This course is open to the people who have an experiential back ground in clinical work and are wanting some very real complementary skills based in a great deal of practice. Theory is kept to an absolute minimum with the accent on learning through doing.

This course is updated in practice and techniques so the description of the topics is variable. Only sign up if you want the very latest from Nigel Hetherington in both Clinical Practice and Personal Development. This course is ALL about practice

Trauma Resolution : EMIPlus : London February 4-5 2012 : Nigel Hetherington

December 4, 2011

In an exciting opportunity, Nigel Hetherington, from Communicating Excellence, has agreed to come to London to present his 2 day workshop on Trauma Resolution: EMI Plus.

For those who have not used EMI before, you will be taken through everything you need to know – prior knowledge is not necessary,
If you already have experience of EMI you will already know just how incredibly powerful it can be in resolving past traumas and you will find that the EMI Plus training adds new dimensions to the use of EMI, and because it is experiential in nature over a full two days, will mean that you will leave the weekend totally ready to use it in a powerful way in your practice.

I am fortunate enough recently to have been on Nigel’s training in Newcastle,  and I found that it took my confidence and competence of using EMI to a totally new level and not just for trauma.This is a way to work completely content free and is brilliant when working with children. I was also surprised to learn how it can be used to create and generate positive states with an interesting twist on future timeline!

These workshops are normally run only in Newcastle, so I am really pleased that Nigel has agreed to offer this quality training in London.” – Cathy Simmons

Meaning In Unity

October 24, 2011

If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” ~ Gospel Of Thomas

Unity comes from Latin ‘Unitas’ from Unus, meaning ‘One’.

There is a fundamentally available and known space we can occupy

  • A space where we can simply be accepting of all that is arising.
  • A place where we accept others as they are; a space where we accept ourselves as we are.
  • A space where we can connect with everything and nothing; be moved and unmoved.

This is a Soul Space

We humans are makers of meanings and we are meaning makers. How we relate and compare, how we evaluate and judge and how we include and exclude can be apprehended as characteristics of our Internal World, our Shared Reality and a deeper understanding of Feminine and Masculine energy. None of these are fixed and if anything, they are infinitely expansible.

Paula and Nigel in this one day workshop will facilitate an exploration of how we can all connect more deeply with our own and shared purposes in business, play and life. How we can welcome and accept our deepest selves and use this experience to welcome difference and diversity whilst holding ‘true’ to our own unique and individual purpose. This is about enabling a more Soulful life, here, now.

We cannot not judge. We cannot not evaluate. We cannot not make decisions. Masculine and Feminine typically do this in different ways. Cultures and Societies have different intrinsic values and beliefs that create certain world views. Aiming to be appreciative and accepting of how all this happens will open perspectives even more so we can realise the Unity in Diversity and come from the deepest recognition.

Knowing we can be moving more expansively to places where we can accept without trying to change others beliefs, values and meanings to allow us to be much more accepting of other and ourselves without the need to understand ‘why’.

The only meanings this life has are the ones we create, share, and accept as ‘true’. Being able to have the Heart Space and Mind Space that together opens a Soul Space is a genuine experience of what can’t be said with words. Come and dis-cover your Soul Space, your Unity …

Therapy NLP & Improvisation – Newcastle NLP Practice Group – Nigel Hetherington

April 20th with my very good friend Ruth Hindmarsh. Improvisation extraordinaire!

When we are working in the role of a change consultant, therapist, facilitator or coach we do have an outcome in mind that is to facilitate a real, honest and empowering environment of exploration for our clients. How can we tune into being this creative?

Way too many change consultants can’t get out of their own way, in terms of making a real step or going out of their own comfort zone to enable their clients to do the same. What can we do to get to grips with getting out of our own way and facilitate real change experience?

There is a real need and requirement to be able to create a context for generative change which is enabling and at the same time, truly an honest and very creative place. When we hold a perspective of being seriously creative, we can see a clear path to genuinely enabling changes …

Performing arts and drama facilitation expert, Ruth Hindmarsh will facilitate a fun and safe space to really be the change consultant you know are, with fun and real purpose.

Within a sequence of exercises, mostly Ruth and myself will integrate play, fun and creativity into tools and process’s you can easily merge into your professional practice and your life to make your sessions and interactions much more creative as well as bringing a smile and sense of something more deeply connecting into our work, play time and life as a whole.

Facilitators : Ruth Hindmarsh & Nigel Hetherington

Entry Level : Open To All

Places are limited to 15 so book in advance to guarantee your place

Come join in and explore in a warm, comfortable purpose built training environment. The Newcastle Hypnotherapy Practice Group, The Trance Cafe meets at St Oswalds, Regent Centre, Gosforth. Third Wednesday of the month.

Humour In Coaching & Therapy

A two day workshop in using Humour in Change Work : April 9-10 : £99.0 : Newcastle upon Tyne with Phil Jeremiah.

Phill Jeremiah’s work using humour in therapy is a seriously humorous, often irrelevant and completely client centred way of working. This approach helps even the most stuck clients make beneficial changes. A ‘Bubble’ session has the gentle power to help shift clients from problem states to resource states and create lasting and powerful change. In the ‘Bubble of Possibility’ anything and everything is possible … With 20 years plus experience in using a humour based approach, maybe you are ready to come on this exciting journey into the Bubble Of Possibility … So … What is the Bubble Of Possibility?

Phil provides training, motivational speaking and support to organisations in the use of humour. Laughter in the workplace is proven to reduce symptoms of stress and can promote good team working in a fun way with groups or individuals. This two day workshop offers us the opportunity to experiment with, understand why and how, and develop confidence in using humour in coaching or therapy.

It’s a must for your development and an even greater must for right now – with our economic and social structures all in turmoil, we could all do with a little humour to help us frame it in ways that are useful to and for us and to and for our clients.

Paula McCormack – UK Social Leaders Coach

Humour can help to break old patterns and establish new ones

This workshop is April 9-10 : There are only ten places :
Your investment for two days training in fully utilising
Humour in Change Work is a very reasonable £99.00

 

 

What is the Bubble Of Possibility?

The ‘Bubble’ is a safe space created in advance of any therapeutic or coaching work. Humour Worx change consultants, explain what can happen in this space, a space where the agent of change will and can do anything and everything to assist their client in making an honest and lasting change, from a problem space to something much more resourceful.

All participants will receive

  • A robust structure to utilise humour in change work
  • Personal change work with the group via exercises
  • The opportunity to do a 1:1 session with Phil
  • New and different perspectives and methodologies to use humour in your own work and practices

So many research papers and books tell us of the positive effects of laughter. Apparently 20 minutes of laughter is equivalent to 20 minutes of physical activity, likened to an inner form of jogging. It may well act as a buffer against day to day stressful perceptions. However, laughter is not easy to come by in our mixed up fear driven world. Consequently Humour Worx sets out to challenge our sometimes negative mind-sets and self-limiting beliefs.

I thoroughly enjoyed Phil’s workshop. Apart from the actual content, which was fascinating, his slick delivery meant that the weekend flew by. He is a superb and extremely humorous presenter, who could give many comedians a run for their money!

He brought the topic to life through a wide range of actual examples and life experience.

Humour Worx is a brilliant tool which complements other approaches. I have used it regularly since to great effect.

Research shows that laughter can help to boost the immune system

This workshop is all about therapeutic uses of humour and a Humour Worx approach to real change. An absolute must for therapists, coaches, trainers and all people helpers! Phil Jeremiah was one of Frank Farrelly’s ( Provocative Therapy ) earliest and brightest students.

When I first did the ‘Humour Worx’ weekend course with Phil Jeremiah, I was not sure of what to expect. What I found was a very fun way of resolving problems, that was both rapid and very effective. The processes used are very well structured as is the teaching methodology, which involves clear explanations along with actual practice of the processes involved. All in all an excellent piece of therapeutic technology.

Spirituality in Therapy & Coaching : March 23rd : 7-9 : McCormack & Hetherington

March 15, 2011

“When your sense of self is no longer tied to thought, is no longer conceptual, there is a depth of feeling, of sensing, of compassion, of loving, that was not there when you were trapped in mental concepts. You are that depth.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

When we come direct from heart space we create an energetic connection that surpasses the concept of empathy or our multi-sensory capacity. In doing so we create the neutral vacuum that two souls can share to explore, discover, test, challenge and shift. For us, this is our recipe for lasting and generative change.

Paula and Nigel ran a café in February with thirty change workers from our region. Within minutes a space or vacuum had been created and a sense of calm descended. A place of peace and an open invitation to a gate for learning was present. Trust was not in consciousness as exploration overwhelmed any sense of anything else egoful.

In this place the concepts of reflection and projection were explored, safely and deeply. In the co-created space, the learnings shared, revealed reflections to be obviously seen, felt and heard. Projections as a consequence were so apparent and evidenced by the triads within which each individual worked. In one group three women who did not know one another before and without consciousness had sat next to one another apparently ‘just because’ shared the same shoes and suit, all shared the same organisation in terms of one had been employed by it, another currently employed by it and the third attending an interview the following day for it. Further they all shared the same fears and depth within those fears, they all shared a desire to learn NLP and two learned that a couple of weeks later they would share the same learning space on a course they had both booked completely independently.

Feedback came pouring in over-night from co-creators who in sharing the same continued to process for enlightenment. Emails have poured in subsequently and we could share many quotes with you but perhaps this one sums it up:

“For me, it’s all about leaving rational thought processes behind & allowing myself to connect fully to my inner self & to simply experience what is happening as it happens without thought or judgement.”

In our continuing journey into the theme of creating heart space whenever or wherever we go, the passage of time and process of reflection by you and us, has now revealed the next steps to be taken.

And boy has it revealed such phenomenal learnings have come to us to share with you in a way that cannot not open you to the greater source that exists within. And when in touch and aligned with your greater source, heart-space emanates in ways that the conscious could not conjure or create by itself. In turn this provides the neutral vacuum that two souls (or more as we’ve experienced) can share to explore, discover, test, challenge and shift. Again in continuous discovery, this is still our recipe for lasting and generative change.

So in this second café Paula and Nigel will facilitate your exploration of the deeper sense of self in a very different and dynamic way to anything that you may have experienced before. If there is language to explain what will happen we would say this experience will take you beyond the idea of ‘personal development’ and into the realms of ‘self awakening’.

You will have the opportunity to co-create between us a space where learning is shared and multiplied by just the essence of your being.

So please come join us for the journey of a lifetime knowing that once entered life will never be the same again.
