I am qualified as an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) practitioner and Ericksonian hypnotherapist, and used those tools daily as part of my work for ten years.
I trained to teach metaphysics, (aka “the law of attraction”) with Gill Edwards, who was herself a trained psychologist before she left her occupation to write her books, the first of which is called “Living Magically.”
Later, I learned more from Tony Robbins about state management, and more importantly how to “anchor in” resourceful states. The ability to choose a response (aka “response-ability”), gives us a freedom to think, feel, do, be and even have whatever we want that should, in my opinion, be taught in schools and colleges!
Suddenly, it occurred to me that NLP provides the perfect set of instructions for managing beliefs - and did not induce delusions, but rather freed people from limiting behaviours, habits, addictions, phobias and the like - often which had been getting in their own way for years!
