Neuro Linguistic Programming

NLP is a profoundly effective “How to” technology for personal change and development, and interpersonal effectiveness. NLP is based on the study of the most influential components involved in shaping our experiences:

Neuro – the unique way we translate the information we receive through our senses about the external world and what is happening around us, and how this translation affects the way we think, our physiology, how we feel and how we behave.

Linguistic – how we express our experience to ourselves and to others through the language we use and how the language we use affects our experience, behaviour and feelings.

Programming – how habitual, often unconscious, patterns of thoughts and feelings developed through the course of our lives affect our current behaviour – and how these patterns can be changed.

Integral Eye Movement Therapy

IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy) is rapid change process that can be used with great effect as content free tool for dealing with trauma and other negative emotions. It can also be used as a generative tool for identity level change.

• Is a model built around addressing and resolving The 5 Patterns of Chronicity

• Has applications in resolving PTSD

• Minimal discomfort in the process as it does not involve traumatic imagery

• Creates kinaesthetic change by addressing imprints of emotion

• Creates change in self concept by addressing imprints of identity

• Uses eye movement as the dominant mechanism for change


Usually pain is just a temporary thing. We hurt ourselves, it’s painful, we get appropriate medical attention, it gets better and the pain goes. In the case of long term pain, something causes that initial pain message to stick around, still treating you as though there is a need to keep you informed that you have a problem.

OldPain2Go™ is available ONLY after your doctor has diagnosed the problem and one of the following applies:

1. There is nothing more can be done but manage the pain.

2. Your Doctor cannot find the reason after exhausting all the test processes and offers pain management.

3. You have a degenerative condition where it is likely the pain will not go away.

Metaphors of Movement

A problem with therapy is that often the client might as well be mute and not speak at all as the practitioner fits whatever communication is offered into their preferred model or frame of understanding. Meaning gets inferred upon the client’s reportage, and the client’s meaning gets lost in the frame. This reframing, no matter how artful and clever, will so often serve merely to negate the client’s experience for the duration of the therapy sessions. It is the precision that the MoM training model develops for the therapist that is often missing.

The client does not usually have the resources or the ability to know what to do about their situation – that is why they are the client. As the metaphor is developed, clients will often discover their own solutions, which can be either specific external behaviours, or changes in attitude, etc. But when they don’t, then it is the therapist’s job, as an expert, to give appropriate, accurate and precise guidance. It is this precision that the MoM training model develops for the therapist.

I have attended several of Alan's training courses and can highly recommend him to anyone. He is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He is also a genuinely caring person too which I think is just as important as there are a lot of over inflated egos out there!

Lynn Marshall - Registered Nurse

Alan is the best trainer and facilitator I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have completed four of the Change Working courses and each time I come away more inspired. The NLP has impacted directly in my work in education and classrooms whilst also shining the light on the personal journey which has been life changing. The IEMT has brought an additional layer to coaching my one-to-one clients and each one has reflected that they felt positive change after the process. I can wholeheartedly recommend Alan; his ability to safely challenge, guide for change and hold the group without judgement is a great talent. I am returning next year for more NLP as I can trust the process, the facilitator and maximise my learning.

Anna Robinson - Specialist teacher for SEMH

Loved today’s course. Alan gave a whole new perspective on an intriguing approach. Would
definitely recommend Change Working

Tracey Dunning

Just brilliant! Alan inspires confidence, he's 'a real human being' and doesn't set himself up as 'a guru'. He's passionate about what he does and he shares his knowledge in an open and honest way. He just wants his students to be successful at what they do - both on a personal and professional level.

Valerie Edwards

Would thoroughly recommend Change Working. I have recently attended Alan's Foundation NLP course and I've learned loads about myself and other people. For me, this course and the coaching session that I had have been life changing. Thanks Alan - I will be eternally grateful
