In the Spring 2014 ChangeCamp Harry Knox ran a wildly popular workshop without giving away the content before the event.

In Autumn 2014 he ran the sequel to that workshop, once again declining to describe his presentation in detail.

In the first part of this presentation Harry will demonstrate the “What, How, Why Problem Solving Process”.

The second part of the presentation will be based on what happens as a result of the first part.

Those of you that know Harry will understand that it has something to do with NLP and will be worth attending, but the only way to find out what it is, is to be there.

P.S. You don’t need to have been to the first two presentations to attend this one.

Presentation: Brief Grief Therapy

Death is a part of life and bereavement is universal.

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

Sadly, some people get stuck in their grief with no way out with what they believe to be no way out.

In this workshop Harry Knox, NLP Trainer and Counselling Supervisor for CRUSE will teach you how to use the Brief Grief Therapy process he has developed to help people come out of the other side of their grief.

No one needs to mourn for 50 years like Queen Victoria, it is possible to help somebody grieve, mourn and come back to life without years of stuggle and suffering.

This workshop will be particularly relevant to counsellors or other members of the helping professionals who work with grieving people.

This is a workshop for professionals so you will need experience of counselling or therapeutic work to attend this workshop.

Presentation: Introduction To Havening

‘When an event or experience is perceived as traumatic or very stressful it becomes immutably encoded, often with life-altering consequences. However, recent research from the field of neuroscience has shown us how it’s possible to modify this encoding. The Havening Techniques® are methods which are designed to change the brain to de-traumatize the memory and permanently remove its negative effects from both our psyche and body.’
– Ronald Rudin, Founder of Havening

Presentation: Colour Me Happy

Often, the simplest actions that happen as a child are the best way to reduce worries that can lead to stress.

When a child plays the natural act of laughter or an activity like colouring in is a brilliant way to remove anxiety.

As adults, sometimes the creativity that we have when we are young and the freedom to express ourselves is lost in a grown up world. We are encouraged to be sensible and behave in a certain way which can be restrictive.

Recently, it has been reported that most of the top 10 selling books are mindfulness colouring in books for adults.

Colour Me Happy will begin with a short laughter session, followed by relaxation and then some therapeutic colouring in.

Presentation: Tempering The Must

Irrational beliefs and rigid expectations we have are actually ‘musts’ we impose on ourselves, which are the very things that bring us down or hold us back. Releasing ‘musts’ from our lives releases the intensity of those negative self-defeating and irrational beliefs.

This workshop examines the work of Sydney Banks and Albert Ellis – updated by Jorgen Rasmussen. During this humour-filled and thought-provoking workshop we set out to:

  • Identity situations and behaviours that lead to the creation of ‘musts’.
  • Recognise the sensations and feelings that ‘musts’ create.
  • Realise simple tools that dilute ‘musts’ into more calming language.

This workshop will suit will assist those working in a care and support role. No prior experience is necessary.

This workshop is co-presented by  Julie Brown and John Clark

Presentation: Refresh and Recalibrate

Do you often set yourself targets or goals, only to find that they are impossible to meet or that life just gets too busy to make time for committing to the goals?

When this happens, you may find that you beat yourself up and use internal dialogue that can be really unhelpful. This in turn usually means that you end up stuck and not being able to progress towards the goal.

The inner chatter of a busy or confused mind then intensifies what may have started out as a straightforward task into something that may now seem impossible.

In this taster session from the Refresh and Recalibrate day, you will be guided through some strategies to identify alternatives to setting unachievable goals and how to deal with diversions along the way as well as being kinder to your inner self if things don’t go according to plan.
