EFT Level 1 – January 2008

EFT Level 1 SealEmotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a new, and easy to learn, self help process that can dramatically relieve distress and improve the quality of your life. Using EFT you can relieve painful memories, reduce anxiety or other negative emotions, relieve cravings, and ease many physical symptoms. It’s quick to learn and easy to apply.

This course will teach you everything you need to use EFT for yourself, family and friends. It’s a hands-on training with lots of supervised practice, you’ll soon be using EFT for yourself, and you may be surprised at just how quick, effective and painless it can be.

This training is fully self contained and open to all, you will be able to use EFT confidently for a variety of issues. If you want to go further, developing your EFT skills for working with other people, it serves as the foundation for the Level 2 (AAMET EFT Practitioner) course.

“The Level 1 course was fantastic. Lots of ‘stuff’ to work on both on the day and afterwards. I particularly appreciate the ‘craving’ technique as I’m now totally Pringle free. No craving, no desire, nothing. How good is that? … There was nothing about the day I did not enjoy or feel could be done better. The group size was small and that possibly made my enjoyment more memorable. Your style was informal and informative.”

Loving your work

Waiting for a haircut this morning I got into a conversation with another guy waiting his turn. He was a volunteer swimming coach for his local swimming club and a Special Needs school here in Gateshead working with physically and mentally disabled children.

He told me about his schedule as an unpaid volunteer, three days at the school and a couple of evenings in the club, about five days a week in total. He loved the work. He was especially pleased when parents told him their physically disabled children wouldn’t be able to swim and then to see their surprise when it turned out they could do just that. He worked with kids with autism, dyspraxia, learning difficulties, spina bifida, cerebral palsy and other difficulties.

All the time he spoke he only commented on what those kids could do, what they were capable of. This one had a great speaking voice, the other was fantastic at maths. While the rest us may have only seen their disabilities and disadvantages he saw what was special about them. He obviously thought the world of those kids and loved the chance to do that work.

The Head Teacher at the special school had asked him to stay on as their swimming coach for a two more years until his 80th birthday. I had the feeling he might be asking for an extension.

Introduction to Hypnosis in Newcastle

My good friend, and colleague at IntegrityNLP, Nigel Hetherington is running an introduction to hypnosis weekend at the beginning of December here in Newcastle.

This workshop will concentrate on how to use hypnosis for beneficial change work and entering states of relaxation for the purposes of meditation, healing, deep relaxation and stress elimination.

The workshop will run over two days where day one concentrates on the fundamental skills and day two really puts these skills to practical uses.

The two days will be about doing hypnosis so this means the days will mostly consist of practical exercises with short feedback sessions.

Participants will receive a comprehensive set of course notes. This hypnosis workshop take place in Newcastle upon Tyne in early December – just in time to put your new skills into practice over the holiday period!

This introduction is not about stage hypnosis. You wont be able to use this to make someone act like a chicken! However you will learn how to use your other than concious mind for relaxation, stress relief and much more.

Nigel is an excellent trainer and I think you can be guaranteed a very relaxing and rewarding weekend. I think it would make a very pleasant alternative to Christmas shopping.
