- I am a Practioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, trained by two outstanding figures in the field; Rex Sikes of IDEA Seminars and Jonathan Altfeld of Mastery InSight Institute. This is the study of how people think, and the art and science on how to get desired outcomes.
- I’ve also learned Belief Craft; a combination of Knowledge Engineering by Mr. Altfeld and Sleight of Mouth by the accomplished Doug O’Brien. This is the examination of how we believe what we believe. More importantly it’s about how to stop believing in limiting beliefs – because nothing holds you back but those.
- I have been certified as an Integrative Life Coach by Melissa Tiers, a well-respected hypnosis trainer and author. I continue to practice under her supervision.
- I’m always learning more on how to help people. A recent training given by renowned therapist John Overdurf was “Linguistic Alchemy" which is based on the question: "What is everything that you don't know about the 'problem' that will change it." This is Attention Shifting Coaching.
- I was recently introduced to Havening by Mr. O’Brien and the inimitable Ira Scott. It’s a new method of changework that is getting astounding results. I plan on getting certified in that soon.
- I have been through so many changes in my life. I used to curse life now I give thanks for it and savor it. I’ve recovered from drug addiction (including the drug alcohol) and smoking tobacco (surprise, this is just another drug addiction). I’m constantly adjusting course to keep myself on target and making new goals. I’m always seeking to replace negative thoughts and habits with good ones. I’m regularly stretching myself to be the better me.
- Since I mentioned addiction I’ll cite another I successfully recovered from. Television. I used to waste so much time looking at that screen. Cable TV is the greatest distraction and robber of goals there is. It also puts messages into your mind that you may not want. This recovery was nearly as important as from the drugs. Want to revolutionize your life? Get rid of your TV.
