  • Bipolar disorder – is everything as it appears?

    I’m struck with the diagnostic for bipolar disorder. Nowadays, like depression, it’s a diagnostic that’s very popular and easily given and I am alarmed by the easiness with which NHS doctors jump to those conclusions and give very strong drugs to patients. I have seen many people officially diagnosed with depression and put on anti-depressants...

  • How to deal with your grieving process

    Have you lost a loved one recently? Do you feel numb, do you find yourself hypersensitive, crying for no reason? Have you lost all motivation? You might simply be grieving. Grief is quite a complex emotion and in our society where everything has to happen fast, I believe we are not giving the right messages...

  • Dealing with your past life regression.

    I had a very interesting experience in one of my sessions yesterday. I’m working with a client who suffers from panic attacks, and we’ve made incredible progress in the past few weeks, to the point where their panic whilst being on the tube has now completely disappeared. However after having used NLP, Hypnotherapy and EFT...

  • Working with sexual abuse

    One in three girls will be abused by the age of eighteen. One in seven children has already been abused. How many do you know? How many of your friends, relatives and colleague have come public with it? How many are still ruled by shame and guilt? And how can you, as a friend, a...

  • Working with procrastination

    Do you find yourself postponing things you have to do? Like sending important emails, or making phone calls that have been on your to-do list for days?! Or even going to the gym, paying the bills or launching your business? Are you finding excuses to avoid doing that? Such as being too tired right now,...

  • Russian dolls

    I was reading a blog this morning on NLP and they mentioned how a lot of practitioners don’t know what process or technique to use with their clients. Because they are focused on the processes rather than being focused on the person’s needs. When I train my Person Centred NLP/Hypnotherapy course, I remind my students...

  • Projected self

    My client this morning brought an interesting dilemma. He was at work last week and one of his customer asked his opinion on other traders in the field. Having a nice rapport already with that regular customer, my client allowed himself to share his thoughts on that subject, which actually weren’t very positive… On his...

  • When the quick phobia cure doesn’t work

    Richard Bandler put together his fast phobia cure a few years ago and supposedly in 10 minutes manages to free people from their phobia. In my experience however – and the one of a few of my NLP colleagues, it’s rarely that straight forward. The brain learns and changes very quickly, therefore it’s indeed essential...

  • Needing space

    A lot of coaches and solution-focused therapists are taught almost from the word “go” that it’s not good for the client to talk about their issues. That the session should focus on creating goals and solutions, rather than dwelling on problems. I totally agree with that. To a certain extend. But let me first tell...

  • Quick fix?

    One of the common theme I find when looking at the NLP world is the quick fix approach. I was reading today a by one of the most respected NLP pioneer,Steve Andreas, on resolving hate and anger. And his first case study got me thinking, once again, about the danger of the quick fix NLP...
