Presentation: Create Your Own Confidence

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.

Presentation: Create Your Own Calmness

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.

Presentation: Is Your Life In Need Of A ‘Wellness Boost’?

Wellness

We all understand that wellness….. happiness….. is the way.

We do, right?

And yet, we often still don’t practice what we preach, or walk our talk, or just give ourselves enough time and space and awareness to enjoy ‘wellness’, or the state of ‘feeling happy’.

In fact, as you are reading this, perhaps you can become more aware now, appreciating and even exploring more new ways to support your ‘wellness way’ even more.

The thing is, we can focus on ‘wellness’ etc. for a while and then, somehow, magically, we slip back, into stress or worry, or whatever if could be for you. Really what we decide to do is to choose ‘unwellness’ over wellness’… Crazy isn’t it?

Isn’t it time to nail this?

Isn’t it time to nail this enough to be also fully who you want to be right now?

Isn’t it time to make this the year that you truly want it to be right now?

Maybe our focus just needs more focus.

You are the only one of you there is (everyone else is taken too), so I ask you,

Are you being the best version of YOU, you can be, right now?

Let’s do this!

Presentation: Tapping Into Your Shadow

The Shadow

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.

Stress

How do you deal with life’s little irritations? Many of us try to turn a blind eye, maybe distract ourselves with food, tobacco, alcohol, television, technology or busyness, so that we no longer recognise when we are stressed; we believe we have to just carry on, get over it, try harder.

Maybe we get criticised – or criticise ourselves – for being too thin-skinned, over-sensitive, intolerant. Maybe we think we’re just tired and therefore tetchy and we’ll feel better about things tomorrow.

Presentation: Brief Grief Therapy

Death is part of life and bereavement is universal.

Most of us manage to find our way through our loss and pick up the pieces of our lives.

For some of us however, the way out seems eternal and a belief can develop that there can be, or will be, no way out for them.

In this workshop, Harry Knox, NLP Master Practitioner,Trainer,Counselling Supervisor and founder of the Brief Grief Therapy method, will introduce you as to how best to use the process that he has created and developed over the past ten years.

It is possible and achievable to enable someone to grieve, mourn and to arrive at the place of acceptance that they wish to be at. What is just as important, is that it does not have to take weeks or months to achieve.

This workshop will be particularly relevant to those people who, either professionally or otherwise work with grieving people.

As per usual with Harry’s sessions, it is a rule that participants have to have fun during the workshop.

Please note:- Harry is about to commence the making of a training DVD of the Brief Grief Therapy process. Anyone interested in being an audience / trainee participant in the making of this, should see Harry during his time at Change Camp.

Presentation: Introducing Rising Strong

Rising Strong is a strategy and model for failing and getting back up again, based on the research of Dr Brene Brown.

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall.

Rising Strong is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of disappointment, failure, and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending.

Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and Rising Strong, our clearest path to deeper meaning, wisdom and hope.

How well do you cope with failing? With criticism? With feeling inadequate? What’s your relationship with feeling your feelings? With courage?

Come and explore the Rising Strong model and approach to start discovering where you ‘get hooked’ by emotion and how to rumble with some of the toughest stories you are telling about some of the circumstances, events or people in your work or life.

This is an introductory session – no experience necessary – just bring an open mind and heart and a willingness to rumble with your thoughts, feelings and behaviours!

Presentation: Havening Techniques®

Havening Techniques®: “a better life through neuroscience.”

Havening Techniques® were researched, created, and being continually developed the two brothers, Dr Ronald Ruden and Dr Steven Ruden.

These methods of trauma release have been built up from a scientific basis, and their foundation is in evolutionary biology.

Havening occurs from a neuroscientific perspective, and has resulted in the development of processes which utilise our electrochemical neurological system through the influence of human touch and other pleasant sensory distractions.

Havening is derived from the transitive verb of ‘haven’, meaning, to put into a safe place.

Therapeutic professionals describe Havening as being honed, flexible, and robust in the process of helping fade disturbing memories into the irretrievable past.

Unbeknown to many, there many different types of havening which can be applied to various contexts, Event Havening, Outcome Havening, Transpirational Havening and so on..

On this session you will be guided by Carol Robertson PhD (Trainer) and Jay Arnott (Practitioner).

So come join us on this rare workshop to learn about the science and take away some real life applications!
