Paul Johnson will be leading a warm-up session looking at Energetic Rapport. Learn some simple techniques that go beyond mirroring physiology in helping to create instantaneous connections.

Paul is a trained hypnotherapist and uses the techniques in both a therapeutic context and in his work in Media Arts Development.

Phil Jones will be leading a session on the use of Non-Violent Communication in a therapeutic, business and relationship context.

Non-Violent Communication (NVC) is sometimes referred to as compassionate communication. Its purpose is to strengthen our ability to inspire compassion from others and to respond compassionately to others and to ourselves. NVC guides us to reframe how we express ourselves and hear others by focusing our consciousness on what we are observing, feeling, needing, and requesting. NVC was developed by clinical psychologist Marshall Rosenberg who starting working on this approach in the 1960s.

Phil has used NVC to work with managers, individual coaches, groups, families and his own children (!) for a number of years to great success and is looking forward to sharing it with the Brighton NLP group
