Presentation: How To Stop Shoulding On Yourself

Shoulds

Are you shoulding on yourself?

Are you telling yourself all day, every day, what you should be doing (and feeling bad about what you haven’t done?

Sometimes we have so many ‘shoulds’ it’s difficult to know what we want.

A should is a rule you ‘should’ live up to, a demand you ‘should’ meet, an expectation of how you ‘should’ behave.

  • I should lose weight
  • I should be more assertive
  • I should be more patient
  • I should …

Shoulds are often intended to be motivating, to help us do what we want or what is best for us. In theory our ‘shoulds’ should help us get things done.

But, you may have noticed that even though ‘shoulds’ are supposed to be motivating, what you should do often doesn’t get done!

In this ChangeCamp presentation Andy Hunt will explain three reasons why shoulds don’t work and demonstrate a simple EFT/’tapping’ method to help find and dissolve them.

A little bit of EFT/Tapping experience would be helpful but it’s not essential.

Sorry, no more tickets available for Autumn ChangeCamp 2017, but Spring ChangeCamp 2018 will be here sooner than you think.

Thank You!

Phew, that’s another ChangeCamp completed (the 18th!). A big thanks to everyone who contributed and took part in a great Autumn ChangeCamp 2017. I hope you all had as good a day as I did.

Thank you to everyone who came along to learn and explore the fascinating world of psychological change and who joined in the event so willingly.

Thank you to all the presenters who gave their time and expertise freely. As far as I could tell a lot of people got a lot out of the presentations.

A big thank you to the people who helped make ChangeCamp happen behind the scenes. Everyone who helped me with the preparation, pitched in on the day to set-up the rooms, and restore them at the end. All the people who helped keep things running through the day at the door and in the hall.

ChangeCamp is a conference on a shoestring, there is no paid help, if it wasn’t for the people who join in and help it just wouldn’t happen. To all of you, and you know who you are, my heartfelt thanks.

I hope you learned a lot on the day, met some lovely people and are looking forward to the Spring ChangeCamp 2018 is on 10th March.

Hope to see you there.

Presentation: Tapping Into Your Shadow

The Shadow

Image courtesy of LaVladina

Have you noticed that people can be very annoying?

They keep doing and sayings things that upset and disturb us.

The psychologist Carl Jung suggested that, in spite of all appearances, that which annoys us doesn’t reside the other person it resides in ourselves.

He suggested that the people that annoy us represent for us parts of our disowned self, our ‘Shadow’, the parts of ourselves that we dare not acknowledge or accept.

To protect ourselves we project those unwelcome aspects of ourselves onto others.

‘They’ are the ones who are rude, loud, critical, etc. If we notice those qualities in them we don’t have to pay attention to our own inclinations to be rude, loud, critical, etc.

Unfortunately being annoyed or upset is uncomfortable for us and there are so many people and so many opportunities for us to project and be distressed.

What would it be like if we could undo the triggers that cause the distress and allow us to accept more of ourselves?

In this EFT/Tapping presentation Andy Hunt will show you how you can use these annoyances to ease our distress and accept ourselves and others more easily.

IMPORTANT: You need to have some experience of Tapping/EFT to attend this presentation. If you are not familiar with it you might like to attend Heather Carter’s Tapping Into Resilience to learn the basics before attending this workshop.
