Presentation: Havening Power Circle

An opportunity to explore the practical use of Havening Techniques

Join this workshop and learn how to use Havening to empower yourself and others in practical, effective and comfortable ways.

Our focus will be on exploring how we can change our perspective and emotional responses more easily and pleasantly than we might imagine; and in increasing our wellbeing, through accessing pleasant memories, sharing our experiences and utilising Havening Touch and several Havening Techniques.

About Havening: a better way of living through neuroscience

Through research and development, Drs Ronald and Steven Ruden were able to share a new system grounded in neuroscience and clinical observation.

They called this system ‘Havening’, meaning ‘to put one in a safe place’, a safe haven. People who have experienced the techniques say that they are ‘effective’ and ‘easy and pleasant to use’.

A study at King’s College London showed that after just one session of Havening nearly all of the participants were able to concentrate better, let go of disturbing thoughts and eliminate worry, and were able to boost their self-esteem. The results also showed that most of the participants were still benefiting from those changes two months after the single session of Havening.

Presentation: Pain, Pain (psychological), Pain – And Relief?

You do feel pain, we all do. Be it physical or psychological we all feel pain. What you want to know is how to go from pain to relief … right?

If you are suffering emotional, physical pain or both this may be a useful workshop for you. Also if you are working with people with pain, you may discover some useful additions for your work.

I was approached in January to be a speaker / demonstrator on a well known ‘Pain Conference’ and I agreed with this stipulation : “I don’t know what I will do on the day with a specific client.”

This didn’t go down well because I was being asked to provide a specific protocol or set of steps to work with anyone. I don’t work one to one like that. If I work with you, you are an individual and your pain and relief will really not fit into a specific bed of tricks. Think Procrustes.

Procrustes was a Greek villain. He liked to either cut the feet or head off anyone that was too big for his bed; He was an inn keeper. Or if you were too small, liked to stretch you out to fit. One size fits all!

When working with pain, its important to remember your are working with a fellow human being and not be fixed to a specific process or another, although there are some very good processes out there.

This CC presentation will explore a variety of ways of potentially changing a
painful experience. Painful here defined as emotionally, physically or both.

Presentation: Reinforcement For A Better 2019

Everything has three phases but do you make the most of them all?

If you brush aside your experiences and rush onto the next thing without
a pause, you may be missing valuable reinforcement opportunities.

Get the most from each phase and work through 3 key questions to
strengthen your self-image and propel you forward to a better future.

Presentation: Who Said That?

Work for the Inner Voice and Busting of Beliefs

A lot of people talk about what to do with your ‘inner voice’. It’s a fact that we tend to talk to ourselves in our own heads.

You see, with NLP, we’re often asked what are the most important things we can practice on ourselves in order to be able to change the way we feel on a regular basis. We are asked, ‘how can I start to manage and change my beliefs. How can I do good effective work in the way in which I think.

A fab way to do this is to change the way you communicate with yourself, to help change the way you feel about yourself and others.

Because, by changing your inner voice effectively, you’re also adjusting limiting beliefs about yourself that had been programmed before.

The thing is too, when we learn to communicate better with ourselves, we can become more present and learn to also communicate more authentically and honestly with others too.

I’d like to give you 5 Top Tips on how to combat your negative internal dialogue to help you change the way you feel. And also put this intro practice because, with enough work, this can really help with limiting beliefs about yourself and others too, therefore also supporting improvements in how you perceive your world and others.

So if you are brave enough to admit that you do actually talk to yourself… like all of the time and in fact it can be quite grim too, then join me for some top tips and change work to help you move forward for you and your clients.

Presentation: Using Narrative In Coaching

Narrative Coaching

Story telling is part of what it means to be human. We are natural story tellers, passing on important lessons through folklore and story since ancient times.

In modern times, the best novels and films are narratives that reveal meaning to us that shifts our perspective. In our organisations and cultures, the most inspirational leaders communicate a vision that is a compelling story of how the future can be.

Our life stories are constructed as we remember and connect events in a way that makes sense of our experiences. Inwardly, this emerging narrative becomes our sense of self. Outwardly, we present ourselves to the world in narrative too, acting in ways that fit the story.

In narrative coaching, we are seeking not to understand the facts of events, but the unique way in which each individual experiences them. Everyone brings their own individual story and narrative coaching is a respectful, person-centred approach that can help people uncover and understand their own narrative. Through doing so, we can recognise that there can be alternative stories. Both for ourselves and for our organisations.

We can re-construct our narratives and realise that we have the power to be the authors of our own life story.

Join this practical workshop to explore the use of narrative in coaching.
