90 minutes presentation
Simon had no trouble motivating himself positively to run a 5K race, which he loved, but he completely avoided dealing with his finances. When a letter came from the IRS, Simon felt anxious, but then put the letter away unopened, paralyzed by competing fears—of becoming destitute, or becoming like his father, whose whole life was consumed by financial matters. This video illustrates the integration of a wide variety of NLP methods in an actual client session, including the difference between talking to the conscious mind and intervening at an unconscious level, utilizing Nick Kemp's version of Bandler's Spinning Feelings method for Anxiety, strategy elicitation, dealing with relevant history, and much more. An unedited 44-minute NLP client session with follow-up. After the showing, Nick Kemp will answer questions and host a discussion.

Nick Kemp has been involved in the field of personal change for thirty years, having studied many approaches to communication and personal development, including Ericksonian Hypnosis, Provocative Therapy and NLP. He worked closely with Frank Farrelly, and modeled his Provocative Therapy, making it much easier to learn the many different interventions, as well as setting up The Association for Provocative Therapy, and he co-trains with Frank each year in the UK. He has created his own synthesis, Provocative Change Works(tm) in his private practice, and has developed a series of new approaches for working with clients including two very rapid and effective NLP methods for resolving the anxiety or other strong feeling responses that are at the root of a wide variety of problems. He has produced a number of DVDs of his Provocative Change Works sessions, as well as his Human Alchemy (tm) series of CDs.
