Havening, Modelling, And Why Today’s NLP Practitioner Courses Are Too Short – Interview With Doug O’Brien: Practical NLP Podcast 85

Andy Smith interviews coaching specialist and NLP and Ericksonian hypnosis trainer Doug O’Brien.

In this interview:

  • Doug tells us about NLP Practitioner training with Tony Robbins in the eighties
  • Takes a dig at the shortness of most NLP Practitioner courses these days (compared to the 28 days they originally took)
  • Shares the basics of one of his favourite client interventions, the ‘Havening’ technique
  • Talks about modelling the skills of a great jazz pianist
  • … and much more!

You can find Doug at https://ericksonian.com and his Essential Coaching Skills membership site is at https://www.essentialcoachingskills.com/

See Doug’s introductory video about the Havening Techniques here (it also includes a good, accessible overview of the amygdala’s role in how trauma responses are formed).

Doug also has a new podcast, Essential Coaching Skills. (Episode 5, where he interviews Andy about using Appreciative Inquiry for coaching teams and individuals, is particularly good)

Episode duration: 36m 00s
