Derren Brown

derren

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.

Tad James

tad

Attractive and charismatic with a profound ability to bring out the best in people, Dr. Tad James is a staunch believer in the inexhaustible inner potential of human beings. He is an exciting, dynamic transformational seminar leader, and a pioneer in the field of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). As a successful Personal Success Coach and NLP Master Trainer, Tad is the creator of a revolutionary new paradigm for human change known as the Time Line Therapy techniques. He is the author of seven (7) books and numerous audios and videos in the field of NLP, including the Best Seller The Secret of Creating Your Future. Tad James was born in Washington DC. His father, Preston James, tried to induce traditional values and beliefs of friendly competition and hard work in his son through his own example (he was Chairman of the Geography Department at Syracuse University). He set high expectations and wished that Tad would be the most successful in whatever he does in the future. His mother, Eileen, played a significant role in his upbringing. She taught him that everyone is created equal and that all people have a potential locked in their minds which if tapped into can create real miracles. Never being trained in NLP, Eileen was always a happy and cheerful person; she used to say I never let my mind think bad thoughts. This was a lesson the young Tad never forgot. Tad James attended Syracuse University, and graduated with a Masters Degree in Mass Communication. He began his career as a manager of a Radio station, ultimately managing his own radio station. At this time, the plight of the small businessman led him to become a business consultant.

Carl Buchheit

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.

Giti Caravan

Giti Caravan, M.Ed., (Psych) CCP (Certified Counsellor and Psychotherapist), Trainer of Neuro-linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy, Business Consultant, and Master NLP coach.

I grow up in a loving and supporting family. If someone had asked me what I want to do when I grow up, I would have said that I am looking for a secret for success in life to share with lots of people. Thankfully I found this by studying psychology and psychotherapy and realized what a good dream was like by starting to live it. I view psychology as the study of magic because all of our power is within our mind. In the roller coaster of life, as I would go through ups and downs, what has always kept me going has been my background in psychology which keeps my focus on where I want to go.

At the university, I studied psychology which put me on the path of my passion and showed me my purpose. I graduated with a degree in Clinical Psychology in 1990 and worked as a University Psychologist at my hometown for a few years before moving to Canada in 1993, where I continued my education and obtained a Master’s degree in counselling and I have been in Canada and the US ever since.

I consider myself a lifelong learner and have not stopped educating myself; I have been involved in the study, research, and practice of what I have learned. I keep attending new training and have obtained tens of additional certificates in cutting-edge psychology and counselling approaches. I am glad that very early in my life I found my calling and my passion. I get an immense sense of joy and fulfillment by helping others become their best selves, which in return has made my life more meaningful.

In my practice, my goal is to perform profound and long-lasting changes in the lives of my clients. I have been able to help people overcome some seemingly difficult issues such as a stutter or extreme phobias, generally within one session. I have also been able to help those who have struggled with severe anxiety or depression for decades to recover permanently and change their lives, often within three sessions. Witnessing the positive outcomes in my clients’ lives fills me with inspiration and pride, and I always wished I could help more people create rapid results in their lives. This is one of the reasons I wrote this book.
