Learning Some Tricks of the Trade

Have you ever wanted to learn some tricks of the counselling trade? I find myself often intrigued by the numbers of people who want to ‘GET OVER IT’ as quickly as possible. And fair enough! Why would you want to spend months walking down a certain path when there is a quicker way to reach your destination?

Over the years I have found that some things – especially in the field of human development – take time. Like a seed you plant into the earth needs time to germinate and grow for a certain time to become a flower, brush, or tree, people need time to grow. But there are conditions that can speed up that growth: for the seed that would be fertile soil, enough water, warmth, and protection from bad weather or weeds.

For people’s growth and healing similar ‘speeding up’ processes are possible. You can learn to connect better with people, you can be more confident, you can stop being anxious or depressed … and it doesn’t have to take much time at all. NLP, or neuro-linguistic programming, has given us plenty of great tools to speed up certain growth processes.

I am offering a series of 6 Saturday workshops, starting 30 April 2011, where I will pass on a range of very useful NLP tools and skills that people can then apply in their daily life.

If you are curious and would like to know more about it, go to my website, drop me an email, or call me for a chat about the workshop.

    I’ve never heard anyone talk about “tricks” to speed things up. I’ve definitely benefitted from social connection and it’s become a way of life for me now. That said, I’m so glad you posted about NLP. I’m looking forward to checking it out – and maybe speeding all of this crap up!

      Hi TC, it took a while for me to respond to your comment. Using the expression ‘tricks’ was probably a bit irreverent. Having said that, there are a few skills that people can learn that have more to do with strategies to be more effective in communicating with others. Knowing these skills will give you a head-start … and used on yourself, it will help to improve your internal dialogue or your thought processes and therefore lead directly to feeling more positive and/or happier. 🙂 Gudrun
