Techniques

In addition to Steve’s coaching process he uses principle based psychology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnosis.

NLP is often described as the programming language of the brain. It was developed by Dr. Richard Bandler and Dr. John Grinder, in the early 1970s, under the tutelage of the anthropologist Gregory Bateson.

It was created by studying the strategies, thought processes and the techniques of the hypnotherapist Milton Erickson and the family therapist Virginia Satir. Bandler and Grinder then applied the same research process to other highly effective people.

Their results were first published (in 1975) in the seminal book “The Structure of Magic: A book about language and therapy”. Many techniques have since been developed based on the principles they identified and have been widely used by Princess Diana, US Presidents, successful executives, business consultants and trainers such as Paul McKenna and Tony Robbins.

Dr. Bandler has personally licensed Steve as a Practitioner and a Master Practitioner of NLP.

Hypnosis deals with your unconscious mind. Your conscious mind is responsible for logical analytical thinking and the unconscious for belief systems, behaviours and automatic bodily functions (such as breathing and digestion).

When we learn something we usually learn it consciously, and then the unconscious mind takes over that learned behaviour. Riding a bike, playing a musical instrument and habits are examples of this. A phobia is an example of the unconscious mind learning something directly in a single traumatic experience.

So in order to get new beneficial ideas to be accepted quickly we must relax the conscious mind and communicate directly with the unconscious mind.

Both the British Medical Association and the American Medical Association approved the therapeutic use of hypnosis in the late 1950’s

To some people it may outwardly appear like sleep but in a hypnotic state you can think very clearly because hypnosis is a state of increased awareness. Hypnosis is just like a relaxing day dream.

So you won’t do anything against your will and you can reject or accept suggestions – it’s your decision.

It is impossible to become stuck in a hypnotic trance. Your brain changes state every 45 minutes; so that is the longest a trance could ever last.

People can lie while experiencing hypnosis so you can control what you choose to say. This means that you will not reveal anything that you wish to keep secret.
