EFT for Addictions Course

Masha Bennett a skilled EFT and NLP practitioner is running  courses for people who would like to use EFT in their work with addictions. The courses are at a variety of levels and include an introduction to EFT so no prior experience is required.

In her description of the course Masha writes:

Our EFT Training courses provide indispensible practical tools for all addiction workers, including drug and alcohol practitioners, as well as other health and social care professionals: nurses, GPs, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health practitioners, social workers, psychotherapists, counsellors, groupworkers, probation officers, youth workers, prison staff. They are also suitable for carers of people suffering from addictions or compulsions.

The courses are running in Manchester on February 25th & 25th

If this is an area of work that is important to you I thoroughly recommend Masha and her work. To find out more visit  www.eft4addictions.co.uk

My good friend Nigel Hetherington of Communicating Excellence is sponsoring a Language in Action training in Newcastle with Christina Hall one of the founders of NLP. The course is only open to Master Practitioners of NLP and there are a few places left.

Lively and interactive, this training is based on accelerated and integrative approach to learning. Chris has, through 30 years of exploring and teaching language patterns developed an approach that she calls “Neuro-Systemic Linguistics.

You can find out more on the Language In Action website.

I don’t know if this counts as a recommendation, but I’ll be there.

STEP: Simple Trauma Elimination Process

footprint-smallDo you work with people who have experienced a trauma?

People’s responses to trauma vary widely, some people just pick themselves up and get on with it, others are very uncomfortable remembering the event, others may re-live it in terrible clarity suffering intrusive memories, flashbacks or full blown PTSD.

Working with people who have suffered a trauma with conventional counselling techniques may only serve to increase their discomfort by forcing them to re-live the events, something they are probably trying hard to avoid.

STEP is a one day training for practising therapists, counsellors, mental health practitioners who work with trauma victims. The training covers the effective use of Emotional Freedom Techniques and NLP Eye Movement Integration for working with and resolving trauma quickly and gently.

Do any of these apply to you?

  • You want to help people recover from trauma quickly but what you are doing now doesn’t seem to work very well.
  • You want to have more effective tools to work with traumatised clients
  • The stories clients tell you when working with their traumas trouble you emotionally.
  • You have the feeling that there must be an easier and better way to help someone overcome their traumatic experiences.

With our STEP training you will get

  • Two effective and powerful tools to resolve trauma.
  • An understanding of where, when and how to use them.
  • Follow up supervision

STEP training takes place in Newcastle on 12 February and 28 March. From 9.30am – 5.30pm and cost only £95.00.

New Years Clarifications: Part 2

Sorting the wheat from the chaff

Values aren’t created equal. We have a unique mix of values with differing levels of importance to us. If we value solitude more than socialising that might incline us to take long solo hikes in the hills. If it’s the other way round we might be at the front of the queue to get into a new night club.

Since our values motivate us and let us know what is important in life the relative order of our values influence how spend our time and how much we enjoy our time.

If contradictory values are far apart we are comfortable with our choices if contradictory values lie side by side then we might have a difficult time deciding what to do. If solitude and sociability have almost equal importance for us that is going to be recipe for stress.

Sorting values

If you have got your list of values from the first exercise it’s time to put them in order. There are several different ways of sorting your values into order of importance. When I did this I opted for a kind of Values Solitaire writing the values down on index cards and sorting them physically.
