Why should you learn about NLP and Hypnotherapy? 

This one day even is a fascinating eye opener for those new to NLP and is practical in nature for everyday life.  You will learn about the conscious mind, the unconscious, and how they can work together to help you get the life you want.

Ran by renowned trainer Rick Maczka, who has many years experience using NLP and hypnotherapy in his private practice, as well as training. On this course, you’ll learn the heart of NLP with a Trainer who is passionate about teaching and seeing clients/students become the best they can be.  You’ll learn about Hypnosis and the seemingly bizarre phenomena associated with being in a Trance, or “hypnotised”.  Learn about your Unconscious and have an experience of Self Hypnosis and observe some demonstrations of Hypnosis.

  • What is NLP?  Including history of NLP and its focus on the replication of what people do well, as opposed to focusing on problem history and content
  • Cause and Effect: Focusing on moving from being at the “effect” of life to being at the choice, or “cause” in life, avoiding victim mentality and dependence.
  • Theme of focusing on results as opposed to reasons – shifting to “Response Ability” and away from “Reasons” for not succeeding

  • Sensory Acuity: Calibration of client’s present state and tracking changes from moment to moment
  • Understanding others: know who you are talking to, adapt your words for each individual for greater level of communication
  • Toward and away from motivation: understanding repetitive, habitual behaviours due to underlying motivational tendencies, and learning how to adapt your communication for each individual.
  • State management:  tools for accessing resourceful states for practitioner and client, plus at least 2 methods for dealing with anxiety and other resourceful states (including anger)
