From Personal Advisor To Coach
Working with Young People with Difficulties the New Oceans NLP Way


NLP is, by definition, the complete coaching medium. Unlike counselling and some other therapies, coaching with NLP doesn't demand that we 'hurt to heal': And it differs most in that it is NOT about imposing one's own 'map of the world' - i.e.` giving advice, however well-intentioned. New Oceans NLP Coaches work from the presupposition that we each already have all the resources we need inside us, in our experiences, our memories. We know that when a client comes to us for coaching, we have in front of us someone with a challenge........and the solution to it! Our job is to help them access that solution - their own resource. They know unconsciously where they are AND where they'd like to be........New Oceans-trained NLP Coaches get them back on the road, and help them stay on it!

We have made our special area of interest young people who have behavioural, emotional, and learning difficulties, and how to respond to them and their needs more appropriately. On this workshop we will help you to discover new and effective strategies for helping them, and gain a better understanding of how they strategise their thinking, feeling, and actions, and the interaction between them.

NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming - is the study of the structure of subjective experience, and about modelling excellence: how we 'code' our sensory experiences - pictures, words and sounds, feelings, how we express them. We ARE how and what we think, our stories, our past experiences; and how we put these together, and externalise them, can be either limiting or empowering.

New Oceans NLP will help you to recognise these patterns, and give you the 'tools' to help the young person improve their internal states, limiting beliefs, behaviour, or learning strategies, so they can become 'un-stuck', get their desired results, and move forward.

The workshop is led by internationally certified NLP Trainer Paul Jacobs, a renowned Learning Consultant, Life, Business, Education, and Special Educational Needs Coach. Paul is the founder of New Oceans, and co-founder with his co-trainer, Master Practitioner and Life, Performance, and Health and Education Coach Dee Shipman, of The Rainbow Journey.
