Solution Focused Practice: The BRIEF Approach

Full days training by Evan George on Sunday 25th March

Evan George is one of the founders of BRIEF in the UK. This one-day programme will introduce participants to the BRIEF approach to Solution Focus thinking and to the key elements of practice within the approach. SF is a flexible, collaborative and empowering approach that can be used with parents, adults and adolescents, with couples and families, and in group-work. The approach can be used both formally in ‘intervention’ sessions and also informally in short conversations, as well as in meetings. The approach fits well with principles of equal access and has a strong capacity to build cooperation and partnership, including in statutory work and with ‘reluctant clients’. This is a tailored workshop for a maximum of 24 people in a comfortable and friendly environment running from 9:30am - 4:30pm. The workshop costs £120.00 and includes the following:

All accompanying training notes.

Certificate of Attendance - this event counts as 7 Hours of CPD.

NLP Techniques for SF Hypnotherapists

Sunday 25th February 2018 - 9.30am - 4.30pm

NeuroLinguistic Programming has been around since the 1970s and was originally based on John Grinder and Richard Bandler observing techniques used by Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, and Milton Erickson that worked with clients and identify the key components of those techniques and being able to replicate them time-and-time again.

This full day workshop will cover:

Introduction to NLP

Building rapport

Pacing and leading

Peripheral vision relaxation

Circle of excellence

The Swish technique

Rewind technique (Fast Phobia Cure)

5-minute headache cure


Dickens Process

Godiva chocolate pattern

Sleights of mouth belief change

Creating a brilliant future


Organic belief change

Some of the techniques make use of what NLPers refer to as submodalities (sight, sound, smell, taste, and feel) and these will be explained. Other NLP ideas such as logical levels will be gently touched on, but they don’t impact on the effectiveness of the techniques described.

With the exception of the Rewind technique the techniques all work nicely with a solution-focused way of working with clients.

Each technique will be explained in detail and then attendees can try them out on each other.

This full day workshop is on Sunday 25th February and tickets are £75 which includes all refreshments and a buffet lunch. To book your space please click on the button below
