Life Begins at 40

life begins at 40

They say that life begins at 40. I wonder why? They say that, in fact, we are what we repeatedly do – but are you actually aware of what you do. How often are you seeking to hide what you do from the outside world? Do you become filled with shame, anger, regret, disdain or self-deprecation after you see the trail of destruction left by you having ‘fun’? One premise … Continue Reading

ANLP and ANLP India accreditation What’s an NLP Accreditation for? I was recently ‘gifted’ an accreditation to ANLP India. Although this is very nice to be thought of and given things for free, I had to ask the question “Why? what’s in it for them?” And, who on earth are ANLP India?

Dependence

dependence

Dependence There are many ways you can look at Dependence as a Practitioner. You can look at those aspects physically, as in food and drink, drug dependence; or from an abstract viewpoint – a mental psychological viewpoint. The whole notion of dependence would be that an outside influence has a ‘hold’ over someone. That the person cannot resist an aspect of that outside influence, and it is detrimental in some … Continue Reading

Certified Online NLP Course

Is there such a thing as a “Certified Online NLP Course?” Of course there isn’t! People who claim such things are simply trying to get your money from you and sell their NLP online courses to you. To get any certified online NLP course accredited, you’d have to be recognised by one of the major NLP bodies in the world. Who are the main certified NLP accreditation organisations? For the … Continue Reading

What is an NLP Practitioner?

nlp certification

I often get asked “What is an NLP Practitioner?” Or even “What is NLP?” Let’s start with how NLP came into being: NLP came about through the process of modelling other spectacular performers in the fields of Family Therapy (Virginia Satir), Gestalt Therapy (Fritz Perls), Linguistics (Gregory Bateson – and others) and Hypnotherapy (Milton Erickson). Both NLP and coaching have very broad definitions that are process rather than content oriented. … Continue Reading

Interconnectedness

Interconnectedness

Connection and Interconnectedness by Wesley Kew, Clinical Psychologist The desire for connection, unity or just physical closeness runs deep in our veins. Some may say that it is inherent in our DNA and that we are in fact social animals. On many levels, I agree with all of the above, because, as they say, the only way to predict future results is by looking at the past. Applying this statement … Continue Reading

The Now State | NLP World

The NOW state Being in the NOW is a gift that is why it is called the present. However, like all gifts, the receiver determines its worth. Meaning that the giver needs to intimately know how that gift will satisfy the needs or wants of the receiver. It is like giving someone that does not drink alcohol a fine bottle of single malt scotch or telling a 10-year old that … Continue Reading

ANLP Conference

Of all the years I have been presenting and attending the ANLP conference, April 2017 has to be up there with the best. Yet if I were pushed to say what made these days stand out from the others I would say it was more of the feel of the event. Yes it was well organised – plus communication before during and after outstanding; but my enjoyment of these kind … Continue Reading

The Psychology of NLP

Compare CBT with NLP

The Psychology of NLP written by Wesley Kew, Clinical Psychologist The Psychology of NLP. What I love most about NLP is its effectiveness. However, this effectiveness is built upon the client wanting to re-map some behaviour or decision-making pattern. This re-mapping/change only comes into play once the current behaviour, experience or decisions are causing unbearable or discomfort/pain to bring about change. I regularly have patients sitting in my ‘change-chair’, only … Continue Reading

Compare CBT with NLP

Let’s compare CBT with NLP and see the sameness or differences. What came first the chicken of the egg? We may not have time to return the whole philosophy of Genesis, yet we can look at CBT vs NLP! Recently, I was confronted by a statement that almost had me veer from my NOW State and had me thinking that the map was, in fact, the territory. I was having … Continue Reading

The hero and the habit

the hero and the habit

In the world of X-Men, super heroes, victims and persecutors, who really are the true heroes? Are our heroes the visible, physical strength based archetypes, or something else? In a crowd of people if the archetypical hero sees a person falling into a body of water and in distress, they would likely have a knee-jerk animal response to saving that person. And if that knee-jerk reaction is purely from an … Continue Reading

Step by step: it’s as easy as your ABC’s I had amazing success using sports psychology with the under 17’s South African girls water polo team winning the Gold Medal in 2016.

Then I knew how powerful these were going to be in my life and work! … Continue Reading

The Psychology of Rapport

the psychology of rapport

The Psychology of Rapport – or unconditional positive regards as the psychological fraternity calls it, is a powerful yet elegant tool. In my opinion its elegance is founded in its simplicity (at first glance). If one had to take a simplistic or even reductionist view of rapport or the art of facilitating rapport, one can be forgiven for thinking and feeling that is almost too simple. However, as Einstein reminds … Continue Reading
