When we think of things that we want to change, we can get hung up with the final outcome which can be a good thing for some people, if they can remain motivated and move towards their outcome.
For some people the change from where they are now to where they want to be can seem so enormous, that the possibility of achieving the outcome can be too daunting to imagine and can be why they will avoid change or give up trying.
By breaking down the journey into small steps and removing obstacles whilst remaining motivated the outcome can be achieved.
During this session techniques will be used from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) through demonstration and practice to find a way to remove blocks which are preventing you from making change and help you move towards your outcomes and goals.
No previous experience is necessary as full explanations and demonstration will be carried out
Keith Adams who has always brought Laughter Yoga to Change Camp is unable to attend the Spring 2018 Change Camp and has handed over the reins for this Change Camp session to Karen Mills and Tahira Aslam who will present Laughter Yoga, combined with Dabke Dance.
Laughter Yoga is a unique exercise using movement and laughter as well as the breathing of yoga. Laughing for no reason energises the mind and body based on the idea that fake laughter can lead to real laughter and yet the brain does not know the difference between them. Practiced regularly, laughter can have health and social benefits.
Learn to dance dabke while you are in the session too. Dabke is a middle eastern dance, often danced in a line or a circle, with people holding hands. It is usually enjoyed at weddings and other festive occasions.

It is important to us to be able to manage our own well-being.
It enables us to function effectively and be more resilient when we need to be.
Sometimes, through external pressures we omit to use techniques to look after ourselves and even the basics of being kind to oneself can be overlooked.
You may have noticed saying things to yourself when you are busy or under pressure that you would never say to someone else. Have you ever noticed the tone your internal voice has when
you are being critical to yourself? Why would you treat yourself differently to others? This is something that we will explore.
During this session techniques will be used from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), Mindfulness and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) through demonstration and practice to offer some alternative ways of managing self care and being kind to yourself.

Most of us may have had times where we wish we had been able to be more confident in a situation.
It may have been at a job interview, completing a presentation, talking to someone, learning a new skill or being able to start a new venture.
Often when we look back at situations that have happened and we did not think we came across as confidently as we could have or should have; we give ourselves a hard time and go back into that same mind-set when a similar situation occurs.
During the session there will be demonstration and practice techniques using NLP and mindfulness on how to create your own confidence when you need it and how not to give yourself a hard time if situations don’t go as well as you had hoped for.
Whether you have wanted to improve your confidence for years or just recently decide to, this session will give you strategies that you can use to improve your future confidence.
Most of us will have memories of situations when we wished that we could have been more calm and even remembering experiences from the past can stir feelings and emotions which we would rather not have.
This can sometimes effect current experiences or make us feel anxious about future situations.
When we restore calmness, we can interact with people in a much more effective and positive way and situations that may have at times seemed difficult are not as challenging.
Benefits of being calm include:
- reduction in stress and creating the ability to relax
- filtering out negativity
- increased focus and clearer vision
- develop a calm confidence
- become more effective and increase productivity
- communicate effectively
- learn to let go
Using techniques from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) you can be equipped with resources to create your own calmness whenever and wherever you need it.
This session will include demonstration and practical use of techniques to help restore calmness in times of anxiety, stress, anger and upset.
No previous experience of EFT or NLP is required as full explanations and demonstrations of techniques will be given.
