Clinical Cases in General Practice using techniques from autogenics, neurolinguistics and hypnosis.

Patients in General Practice constantly underestimate their own abilities. Often if I try to place myself in their shoes I wonder if I could be as resilient as they have been. My workshop will hopefully allow me to share some of my own patient experiences with you and give you some idea of how I as a hypnotherapist and NLP master practitioner try to shed some light on people who are often in very dark places. I try to tap in to their unrecognised potential as quickly and as effectively as possible. I am also trained in MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) and use stand-alone autogenic exercises.

The workshop will concentrate on therapy that can be done quickly and effectively in a General Practice situation. I hope to cover a lot of territory from anxiety to zelophobia. I will take the participants through a series of techniques that I have found useful over the years. The workshop will be interactive attendees should expect to participate in small group work.
