Six Step Hypnosis is a stand alone skill set & part of the following combined courses: Thousands of people have started a successful Hypnosis business....Why not you?

And with our unique 6 Step Hypnosis™ format you have the best chance ever of looking like a seasoned pro right from the start.

Interested in NLP more than Hypnosis?

We need to talk... call us, email us, write us a letter.....

NLP & Hypnosis compliment each other beautifully, it's synergy not just two skill sets.

There's far too much nonsense thrown around about Hypnosis, so here's the facts....!

Hypnosis is a safe, positive, natural human ability that harnesses the power of your mind and your imagination making them work for you and not against you.
Hypnosis is a powerful psychological skill set you can bring to bear on any aspect of your life
Hypnosis is most definitely not the preserve of licensed specialists who use it only for therapy. That would be like saying music needs to be put into the hands of 'specialists' because of its enormous power to stir the emotions and send the mind off on wonderful journeys of discovery, creativity and insight. so No hypnosis is not just for the few, like music it's for the many and in the same way you can learn to play music at any age, you can learn to use hypnosis on yourself and on others.

✓ Hypnosis is useful in all areas of life, personal & professional;

✓ ✓ ✓ And when you mix it up with NLP....well... tis a beautiful thing.

Plus, when all is said and done, if you come along and you really don't get on with it then we'll give you a refund, and that's probably the only way you'll ever really know...... if it's for you or it isn't.

Important!
Hypnosis is one of the core skill sets for many of the professional courses. The powerful language patterns are used extensively in both modular courses and one day CPD workshops.

BUT..even better than that, You get to spend Five days hypnotizing people and being Hypnpotised, hearing positive messages delivered with skill and technique, mind and body immersed in a full well being experience, music, scent, comfortable light furnishings, the perfect place to learn, learn about hypnosis and learn about yourself too, empower yourself, feed your mind on some great stuff with great people.

We don't do stuffy classrooms, or posh hotels, we know how strongly they smack of conformity to old behaviours and ways of being in the world.
We don't want to look at ferraris in a car park or a broken air con unit and stained carpets in what 's probably a store cupboard when not booked for training.
We are not kidding, we pick our learning environments using learning theory, not because they give a certain impression or because they're cheap

Everything we do is like that, it fits, our Diamond Training format, our way of delivery, the environments, the connections we make, we know our stuff and we use it well whatever we are doing,
  • Designing and delivering accredited NLP or Hypnosis training;
  • Designing and delivering workshops or business training;
  • Coaching (using our deep change coaching system)
  • Facilitation, hire us to facilitate your meetings, grievence hearings, performance reviews
We hope you get in touch, come check us out, an email or call would be perfect but if you'd like to know a bit more about us before calling then these two pages give honest and up to date information about the company, and our products and services.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Essential Skills for 21st Century Professionals

The Diamond training format is not the only way Active NLP is meeting the challenges of 21st Century skills training.

Here's our top 5

  • 1. We are constantly developing ideas and techniques to make NLP & Hypnosis more user friendly and easier to access. NLP and hypnosis are natural human abilities that harness the power of the mind and make it work for us not against us. As such they should be widely available to as many people as possible.
  • 2. We have 15 years experience learning on the job. Most of the innovation in our training has been developed in actual practice not on a piece of paper (that came later in order to formalise it). That's why we can say with complete confidence that the things you learn on our courses work in practice and not just in theory.
  • 3. Lead trainer Nick Evans can do the heavy intellectual work (he actually likes it!). Ooops, did we say the 'i' word? Well, an ambitious politician may say that people are "fed up" with experts but the reality is in design, engineering, physics, the creative industries, the technology sector, in fact in all areas of our society, knowledge and skills open doors to potential futures that are denied those without them. Nick's strength has always been his ability to take complex ideas, theories and strategies, to study them, test them, try them out and then develop something that can be used in our daily lives.
  • 4. We stick to our values and stand up for what we believe in, even if that sometimes runs counter to current trends. We are proud to be part of the personal development community, we just happen to think you shouldn't be given a certificate with 'clinical hypnotherapist' on it when you haven't been shown how to do even the most basic and rudimentary trance work. The solution is a simple one, and we are making a strong case for it.
  • 5. Our modular, flexible courses are designed for busy working professionals with tight schedules and often tight budgets. You can pay for modules as and when you take them, with each module you take you increase your accrediutaion level and you can pick the modules that work for you.

Responsive Design Vs Static Design

Responsive design is characterised by its use of higher level patterns, patterns that fluidly adapt and blend depending on circumstance. 'Static' courses on the other hand are filled with lots and lots of predefined techniques (10 steps, 15 steps, 28 steps, perhaps more.) Every step is defined as having a right way to do it and a wrong way; you learn each technique in a set way and you're advised which technique to use and when to use it. It's the most common way of teaching NLP...but it's not the right way.

We've checked out dozens of NLP & Hypnosis courses on the internet and as far as we can tell they are all still using the traditional 'Static' training format.

Why does it matter?

Because static courses strip NLP & hypnosis of their power and limit them to a set of rigid steps that work in theory but rarely in practice.

Only, well, just take a look around, seems there's still plenty of that stuff about
and one thing is for sure

Making the steps, processes and rules more detailed, more controlled and more restrictive is a strategy that belongs to the old testament not 21st Century life and work




It's looking for the higher level similarities between systems and best practice.

At each level of a particular skill, therapy, coaching method, training method or expert activity we pause and look for patterns that exist elsewhere in the activity itself and in the areas of knowledge and expertise that it is part of.
For example, some of the contextualising NLP patterns are called pre-suppositions. There were around 6 or 7 of them originally but that number has grown over the years as writers, trainers and practitioners have added their own versions. However, applying a little critical thinking reveals that these new pre-suppositions are really just variations and not new at all. And those original presuppositions can themselves be traced back through time, the Victorian age of inventions, the 17th century age of enlightenment, the scholastic middle ages, right back to ancient Greece. It's not that they were just plucked, plagiarised or stolen from the great thinkers of history, it's more like an evolutionary process as each generation added a visionary twist of their own, one that was useful and profound for the times they lived in.


For instance; one of the higher level ideas in NLP is...

It doesn't matter if something is true or not, just act as though it is.


Er...and that helps me how?

.

We have the experience, the wider knowledge, and the sheer love of it to be constantly taking, what on the surface seem like complex webs of different facts and theories, and ideas and turning them into something usable, understandable and practical for everyone.
How many times have you come across a book, essay, video or whatever and instinctively known that it contained something valuable, something important, something that could make a difference to your life..BUT, it's like the format is designed to keep you out not let you in, either droning on saying not very much or making your head swim with diagrams, calculations, statistics things that look like the longest long division sum ever created, defintely not user friendly and one of the reasons why the 'dummies' books were so popular.

What we have done at Active NLP is to forge a path down the middle way, not overly complicated nor overly simplistic because both of those are plain impractical.
Our usable, practical and workable multi-model created by Nick is an outstanding piece of work as it gets that balance right, however it has taken him 15 years so we won't be awarding him a gold star just yet!


Why is it important?


And..... what that means is?


What's needed now to take us forward

  • make you thin.
  • make you stop smoking.
  • make you rich.
  • make you confident.
  • make you not afraid.
and so forth. We won't learn those will we?' To which we reply, 'No, and why would you want to. Did you really believe it was that cut and dried or did you just want to believe it and prove old William James right.

What's the difference again?

5 questions you need to ask before choosing a course or practitioner

Whether you're looking for a course, or an individual Practitioner, asking these questions will you save you time and £ £ £


They believe that techniques and scripts are like magic spells you pick from a book.

What technique is best for this? Or
What script is best for that? are valid questions if the technique or script is seen as a guide or framework, BUT, not if they are seen as guaranteed " cures and fixes ".

Techniques and scripts come in all shapes and sizes, some of them are good, some are bad, some are devised by experienced practitioners, some are created by people who know little or nothing about NLP & hypnosis.

The biggest problem with this approach is that, because the techique or script is considered infallible, if it doesn't work on you; for example, make you more confident, then you could get the blame for being ‘ resistant ’

Solution: Choose a professional who uses scripts and techniques as frameworks and tailors them to your individual circumstances.


They make people fit techniques instead of making techniques fit people.
I'm afraid anyone taking this approach is simply following instructions without any understanding of the patterns at all. They've learnt a hundred techniques for a hundred possible scenarios,

''' BUT ''' you wouldn't learn French by memorising a hundred sentences for a hundred encounters. That's the beginners way AND

It's the same with NLP & Hypnosis.

Solution: Choose a professional who can explain why they choose one technique over another and how it produces the effects it's supposed to. This will demonstrate a deep understanding of the technique or script which means they can adapt techniques to you...not you to techniques.


No interest in wider subjects that concern the human condition.
NLP & hypnosis are just as much Art as they are Science.

If your trainer∕practitioner is not versed or interested in wider subjects, art, history, philosophy, spirituality, and clings instead to reports, data and statistics then they will be unable to create simple, effective and user friendly ways of facillitating change in the real world. You'll be seen as a "Human system" and be expected to behave as one.

Solution: When making your enquiries drop some references to wider subjects into the conversation and see the response. The ability to see multiple perspectives is an essential skill for a Practitioner and you only get that if you educate yourself as to what those perspectives are.


Using venues that re-enforce your existing habits, thoughts and feelings.
Fundamentally, the reason you are engaging with NLP & hypnosis is to learn about yourself and explore your potential.

If your learning environment is essentially the same as your work environment, even if it's an upmarket hotel, then it makes it harder to try out new ideas and new ways of doing things. Worst case scenario; you retreat back to the safety of old behaviours and ways of being in the world.

Solution: Ask why they use the venue they do. If it's obvious that it's chosen for it's feel good factor or sense of affluence rather than its suitability as a learning environment then I would choose someone else.

Don't value real practice and one on one engagement.
The most obvious and the most important

the more face to face time you get for your money....the better.
Just think about anything you've ever learned. Wasn't it easier when you had someone to show you how it's done, someone to answer questions as they come up and point you in the right direction?

It's harder and takes longer to work it out for yourself, hours searching the internet or 30 seconds asking a real person? We know this, but we also weigh up the costs.

Trouble is "Certificate issuing" is big business these days and you might end up with a bunch of certificates but no real skills.

Solution Don't be dazzled by impressive looking logos, crests and seals. They are all private companies and they need to make a profit or they go bust. Look beyond, who is doing the actual training, how long have they been doing it, how much one on one time are they willing to invest in you.
