Building Better Boundaries
Therapists and coaches often talk about “boundaries” but few have explored this metaphor literally. NLP developer Steve Andreas, when he was modeling self-concept, devised a powerful set of tools for exploring, changing, and strengthening our personal boundaries based in experiential processes. In this quick workshop, you’ll learn how to elicit someone’s personal boundary and make changes to it so that a person can automatically respond more resourcefully. This is useful in many contexts: dealing with people who push your buttons, feeling “drained” when working with certain clients, asserting your needs in relationship, and much more.
3 Anxiety Hacks for Feeling Calm and Safe Quickly
Anxiety is the body’s danger warning system. It’s like a fire alarm. A fire alarm or smoke detector is a useful thing to have: if your house is on fire, it will emit a shrieking, extremely loud beep to wake you up and get you moving. The goal of a fire alarm is to get you running out of the house as quickly as possible. But sometimes you’re just cooking something in the kitchen and it’s kinda smoky but there’s no danger, and the fire alarm goes off. Many hypnosis and NLP techniques are like taking out the batteries of the smoke detector, failing to preserve the positive purpose of the anxiety. In this class you’ll learn three quick hacks for turning off the state of alarm so you and your clients can quickly get back to feeling calm and safe in truly safe situations, while preserving the positive purpose of the anxious response.
