Practical Practitioner

This is not NLP, This is something else!

This is the New Alchemy of personal growth and coaching processes and skills – with a twist! John takes his 39 years of therapy, training and coaching experience and blends it with current neuroscience research to create a potent, rich, and transformative 8 day experience. It’s not like any Practitioner Training you’ve experienced!

What Will We Cover?

The Practical Practitioner is for anyone who wants the newest streamlined coaching practitioner training developed and taught by a recognized leader in the NLP and Coaching fields. If you are new to NLP or you are already an NLP Practitioner or Master Practitioner you’ll benefit from the strong emphasis on how to conversationally coach the unconscious mind.

Neuro-science has long known that our unconscious functioning precedes conscious awareness by a 1/2 second. This means that most if not all coaching issues like motivation and procrastination, indecision, conflicting priorities, burnout and overwhelm, and performance anxiety are a result of automatic (unconscious) reactions and patterns which occur before conscious awareness.

Amazingly, though, most coaching programs available today rely heavily on conscious processing through questioning, analysis, and tasking. This is like trying to steer a train by asking someone in the last car to change the direction of the entire train. It simply won’t work. This training will teach you how to work with unconscious processes that are at the root of most issues, yet do it in a natural, conversational way that makes this approach adaptable to any context.

John is able to simplify complex concepts into practical step- by-step processes with tremendous scope in the “real world.” The result is a training where you’ll acquire cutting-edge conversational skills effective for business, coaching and therapy while shifting your paradigm of change and what is possible in your life.

John’s teaching emphasizes the balance of skill development while also transforming from the inside out to create congruent competence. Skills alone make a technician with no humanity or heart. Transformation alone is inspirational, but sometimes lacks the “how to” details. Because John teaches to both the conscious and unconscious mind you’ll have a direct experience of skill development and personal transformation – and to the extent you are open and ready for it- increase your congruence and belief in yourself to be a positive presence in life.

This program will equip you with Practical, Real World Applications. In many ways it is completely streamlined, but in other ways far more complex than what is traditionally taught in NLP Practitioner Trainings. You’ll find it to be VERY practical. No BS, no theory that is not directly related to how you use the processes in the real world.

Because this is an eight day Practitioner Training with a lot of newer information, to cover some of the classic content amenable to home study, you’ll receive three weekly downloads of audios, videos and other preparation material so you’ll hit the ground running at the live training.

Each of these preparation downloads included inductions to create the optimal state of learning of the information, using binaural beats to help stabilize a relaxed alert state which would be revivified in the live training.

This is something new and fresh! While this training was informed by NLP and Hypnosis, it is much more reflective my own clinical experience and research as well as applied Neuroscience, Social Psychology, Embodied Cognition and Rhizomatic Perception.  (If you are wondering what Rhizomatic Perception is, you can check it out here.) It includes some of the best models I’ve ever created to date. They have changed how I work with clients, but more importantly how I perceive reality and live Life.
