All Change is Good

If you are an old visitor, you may have noticed something a little bit different around here. The (very old) creaky website has had a swanky new update. It’s still a “work in progress” at the moment and content is being updated.

The change in the site is more than just a refresh and reflects my new change of direction. I have taken some time recently to reconfigure what I do, and I have made the decision to move aware from scheduled public courses and focus on one to one tuition and coaching and in-house training courses. I am also shifting focus on my speciality with clients. As the picture above this blog suggests, it is still in its embryonic stages and more news will follow soon.

Please bear with me, and I apologies for any spelling errors, broken links, etc (if you find any, please let me know, as I thank you I will give you 10% off a session!).

More updates as events progress…

Due to family commitments I am taking a short break from running public courses. I am still offering one-to-one coaching and tuition and in-house training courses. Please contact me here to discuss them in more detail or to book.

In 2003, after completing my Trainer Training with Richard Bandler, I founded The Birmingham NLP Training Academy with the mission of bringing the best quality NLP training to Birmingham, the UK’s second city. At the time there was no other training company in Birmingham  specifically focusing on NLP, and it was the regions first dedicated NLP training provider.

Between 2003 and 2007 I ran NLP courses with my good friend Bob Spour.

In 2008 I put The Birmingham NLP Training Academy into “hibernation” as I moved to Cardiff and was running courses throughout the UK.

In 2011, I started using The Birmingham NLP Training Academy name again to run a series of courses with Mark Peters.

Mark has now acquired “The Birmingham NLP Training Academy” name and all associated websites and social media presence. I will have no future dealings with The Birmingham NLP Training Academy from 1st June 2017.

Since Mark initially completed his NLP Practitioner course with me in 2006 he has worked very hard on building his training and therapy business “Balanced Approach” and investing in his skill. I wish him all the best in the future and I am sure he will do the Academy I founded proud.

I will be continuing to run courses and coaching programmes under the name Matt Caulfield Training and Consultancy in Cardiff and around the UK.

Merry Christmas 2016

I just want to wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I know things have been a little quiet this year on the communication front, with no newsletters and very few blog posts, etc, so I want to reassure you that I am still here!  Although I have been a bit quiet on that front my trainings are, of course, still running and you can see my current 2017 training schedule here, including the updated and totally revamped, much more comprehensive NLP Coach course.

The office is now closed until 3rd January, I will deal with all queries and bookings when I return. You can continue to book on any of my upcoming courses in that time, and if you have any issues I will be checking my emails and be able to help you out.

Merry Christmas and Warmest Wishes,
Matt

Packed full of practical exercises you will be creating change from the moment you start. Don’t be fooled by a name, the Society of NLP Licensed Coach of NLP is more rigorous and robust than other so called “NLP Master Coach” trainings.

News Update

My apologies for the lack of contact of late, my wife and I had a baby in March and those of you that have had children knows that it takes a little while to adjust to this new way of life. So to allow ourselves to do this I have taken a break from my blog and newsletter for a few months and just concentrated on my training courses and coaching clients.

This email is to just to let you know I haven’t forgotten about you and keep you up to date with what is coming up this autumn.

Core Training Courses

My core training dates for the autumn are:

NLP Practitioner

Cardiff Module 1: 09-12 Oct

Application Courses

Along with my popular Coaching Applications of NLP course, I am also relaunching two other applications courses. The feedback I continue to get is that people want information and tools about how to apply NLP to specific areas and fields. In response to this, this autumn I am re-launching two of my Application course:

Business Applications of NLP

The problem with teaching NLP for business is what we actually mean by the word “business”, do we mean leadership and management? Human Resources applications? Project management? Consulting? Training and development? Sales? Negotiation? Entrepreneurship? With such a bread range of specific applications within the businesses arena, how can you offer a business NLP training that will be relevant and useful to all these? most NLP courses claiming to be business courses focus on just one of these applications, often the bias of the experience of the trainer.

I have thought about this long and hard and decided the best way I could offer an Business Applications course that would really add value was to mapped the NLP tool I developed when working with organisations that will  give you clarity, insights and a way forward in a  broad range of situations and applications.  You won’t find this anywhere else, it is unique to this course.

For more details about this course, click here.

Sports Applications of NLP

Increasingly people are becoming more and more interested ion with “sports psychology” on the rise. At the highest level of sport, it is rarely the physically ability of the players which decides who wins or loses, but their mental ability. This course will show you how you can apply NLP and hypnosis to your sports training to maximise your results.

Over the years I have worked with a broad range of amateur and professional sports people, and from this experience I have developed a number of first principles,  tools and techniques that you will learn on this workshop.

Full details are here.

No dates are confirmed for these 2 courses as yet, they will be late autumn or winter. Please contact me to register your interest.

Other applications courses that I am dusting off and sprucing up for my 2016 training calendar are:

  • NLP and The Structure of Hypnosis: Hypnotic Applications of NLP
  • Entertainment Applications of NLP

Site Update

You may notice that my website is loading rather slowly, that is because something (that I don’t really understand) has gone catastrophically wrong behind the scenes. This, though, has given me the impetus to finally get rounding to doing the big site update I have been planning in the bit of downtime I have over the summer. Watch this space.

The blog will be starting up again soon as will the monthly newsletter.

That is all for now,
Matt
