REP EMDR Kinesiology NLP Hypnotherapy
Jonathan Livingstone combines a number of methods in his work, including kinesiology (involving muscle testing, a way to communicate with the unconscious body without hypnosis), EMDR, NLP and hypnosis. He also uses a method he developed called Relearning Experience Process (REP).
Follow the links to find out more about the various therapy and coaching methods. For a very brief outline of REP see below.
Relearning Experience Process
A person presents for therapy because there is something she (or he) wants to achieve but seems unable to achieve. She is behaving in way that she doesn't want to (or failing to behave in the way she'd like to), and may or may not be aware of uncomfortable feelings. Her behaviour is inconsistent with her practical goal.
The obstacle to the person achieving her practical goal is something in herself. But it's not a lack of skill or knowledge. If that were the case, the person would not need therapy but, rather, further training. The problem is internal to the person and is therefore emotional or psychological.
The therapeutic goal, which is the quality or capacity that will enable the person to overcome her internal obstacle and achieve her practical goal. Achieving the therapeutic goal is the aim and outcome of therapy.
Underlying the therapeutic problem are feelings which drive the person to behave in a way inconsistent with the achievement of her practical goal. These feelings are the mechanism that will lead the person back to the origins of the problem.
At the origins of the problem the person is guided to an imaginary resolution of the problem in the past. This resolution, or relearning, work gives the person a new way of responding to the difficult circumstances in the past.
Back in the present, the person is no longer able to get back the uncomfortable feelings that have driven the problematic behaviour, and a new way of behaving is possible. The person is able to behave in a way consistent with achieving her goal.
Permanently resolution of the problem has been achieved.
