Big Life Changes – how flexible and adaptable are you?

I heard on the news this morning that they have done an experiment on some starlings, to gather information on the impact of anti depressants (Fluoxetine or Prozac) in our U.K. water system, as a result of so many people taking happy pills and peeing it back out into the water course. (See http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/ampp3d/whats-in-our-water-4516573 for the full news article)

Is Sound a Secret Healer?

Just a quick blog post today as I have loads to do right now. But I felt moved to jot down some thoughts on whether Sound is an underrated healer – or damager!

Do you love the sound of the ocean or wince at another loud siren passing you on the street?

Do people feel better when you have been talking to them – or worse!!

Have you even ever considered that your voice is a sound tool that could be healing your listeners?

When I hurt my knee some years ago and was sent for some physiotherapy the therapist used a machine that buzzed on my damaged knee with first very low pitched sub-sonic and then very hight pitched super sonic sound waves.

Life Changes – and surviving them! My story

If you are a Scot – you are about to experience a big change and I hope whatever the result of the referendum it turns out to be the best for you.

Many of the clients that come to see me in the clinic bring problems relating to dealing with big life changes of one kind or another. I, myself have had to learn how to adjust to children leaving home, the death of my husband, a major relocation, becoming a grandmother, a new relationship and re-starting my business in a new area – to name but a few. This week I have helped a 30 year old woman to come to terms with a recent divorce and a 50 year old man to cope with a redundancy from work.

Is there such a thing as objective reality?

p class=”p1″>The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there. —Yasutani Roshi

Is there anything that we can truly know is objective reality? My answer is I don’t know. My internal jury is still out and deliberating!

What I do know is that my subjective experience is what matters to my life. If I think you hit me and I feel the pain, then whether you agree that you hit me really isn’t that important to me. I know science is all about proving what is objectively real and consensual, but how many times do Doctors fail to cure their patients? How often

Voice Power

I wrongly read the collection time sent by text and turned up 2 hours early at the airport.

Instead of wasting time berating myself, (see previous post) I decided it was an opportunity for a quiet read – but I hadn’t brought the book I was midway through.

So I headed to the bookshop where I saw a book called, “Talk Like Ted”,(http://www.amazon.co.uk/Talk-Like-TED-Speaking-Secrets-ebook/dp/B00HPYMTOO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408013973&sr=8-1&keywords=talk+like+ted) and as it was about powerful presentations I thought I would buy it and see what they had to say about how to use your voice to make a greater impact and engage the audience more fully.

Send or Post Your Questions

Well, I have had a busy few months. At last, I am ready (I hope!) to start using this space in a way that can be useful to you. What I am going to do is to copy in any emails sent to me (send them to laura@laura-spicer.com and put blog question in the subject line) asking me for online help. I will then post the replies.

This way, I maximise the benefits to everyone and use my time constructively. In most cases, you won’t be the only one suffering with the same problem and so you will be doing others a favour by asking and getting a reply posted.

It’s a funny ol’ life

It’s a funny ol’ life!
They say laughter is the best medicine and I would tend to agree when it comes to helping our clients change for the better.

I recently ran a “Light up and Laugh” Workshop for this very reason. My aim was to focus on one of the elements that make NLP change workers stand out from the rest. The first picture above is of us all before the workshop and the second one is afterward. Bit of a difference eh?

One of the reasons Richard Bandler’s work is so effective, is not only due to the techniques, but because of his ability to make his clients laugh. We all know as practitioners that ‘State’ is paramount and fundamental. To be able to go first into the ‘States’ we want our clients to go access is essential.

One Person’s Experience of the Stop Stammering / Stop Stuttering E-Course

Hi Laura here,

I have been exchanging emails with an 18 year old French Canadian man who is in the process of overcoming some struggles. I think he has a fantastic attitude developing and I have a strong belief that he will succeed in his ambitions to get himself sorted and fluent. He asked me to delete his name and a couple of other very personal details, but basically I have just copied and pasted our emails below. I hope it helps and encourages some other people to know that you can get determined and start to make your life one you really love.
