Although Derren Brown is most famous for his fascinating television shows broadcast in the UK, he has a solid reputation for his unequaled development of NLP and hypnosis. In fact, Derren’s effortless demonstration of NLP to manipulate the thoughts of his guest stars was what got me interested in NLP in the first place! Derren Brown actually has a flexible view of NLP which is similar to my own. Rather than adhering to rigid methods set out by NLP’s original creators, Derren uses wordplay that works well and has adapted a lot of NLP techniques to make them work a bit more seamlessly. It is for this reason that Derren’s methods are my chosen schema for the techniques on this website. They work the best. It’s as simple as that.

Carl Buchheit PhD has been called the father of transformational changework. Gifted teacher, humble genius and pioneer in the field, his unique body of work is the secret sauce behind hundreds of thousands of transformational coaches, therapists, and change practitioners around the world. Carl’s first encounters with NLP (integrated with clinical psychology) came via the business world in the 1970s, and he first encountered systemic constellations in 1990. But he explored and experimented with these modalities through a metaphysical lens. Carl noticed that human beings on this planet seem to reliably figure out what they want, then somehow create wiring that ensures they don’t ever get it, not really. The originators of this remarkable body of work could rewire underlying patterning in an instant. It was truly impressive. But Carl asked how come that patterning got there in the first place? What’s the purpose behind all this pain? What’s the compassionate intention behind an infinite consciousness choosing to get its neurology wired up in this way? Over the last 38 years Carl developed Marin-style NLP (MNLP) to go beyond the conventional techniques into a philosophy-grounded practice. If conventional NLP is about procedures, MNLP is about people. This mindful co-active approach to transformation helps to change things that truly seem unchangeable.
