What people are saying:
“Very interesting material. I am looking forward to applying the information in my work as a counsellor.”
“I found this course great revision for my NLP learning. The insights and skills Alan teaches are practical and immediately usable in any situation, not just for Therapy Professionals. I am listening to the lectures over and over in the car (I just turn the screen off!!) and it is really helping me to listen better and to choose my words and phrases carefully.”
I genuinely feel this is the 'secret sauce' to effective therapeutic interventions. Working as a therapist myself since the early 2000's I've encountered almost every kind of pathology imaginable. And over many years I've honed not just the techniques and interventions I use, but the delivery of them. After all, communication is key.
You see 'we cannot not communicate'. What this means is that everything we do communicates something - the quality of that communication determines how our clients, friends and colleagues experience reality.
Vital in this is what we say. The primary tool for us as therapists is our voice and the words we say.
Words have a deeply profound subconscious effect and affect on the mind, and can either harm or heal depending on how they are used.
A number of studies, including those from the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, reveal that decisions are subconsciously made in a person's brain and as much as 10 seconds before we consciously make them. Those conscious decisions are a result of subconscious processing. This implies the same for the pathological thoughts and feelings our clients experience.
What this means is that the words you say to your clients will be affecting them at an unconscious level before they consciously respond.
Therefore you have a profound window of influence for good
Using precise language and words and understanding their effect is not only essential, it's critical.
That is what you will learn on this course
With the skills you learn in this course you will be able to;
Overcome client resistance by bypassing the conscious part of their mind
Communicate directly with the subconscious and emotional parts of their brains
Help clients painlessly change negative thoughts and feelings
Supercharge and streamline your therapeutic approaches
Transform the way you speak with everyone
This course is the most well received live training when I teach it to mental health professionals
