Q. Rita what brought you to TPM?

I am a regular attendee at the NLP annual conferences in London. This is always a stimulating and inspiring event where I meet lots of interesting people and learn new tools and techniques to use in my coaching and therapy practices. My attendance in 2008 was my most exciting to date. I choose to sit in on an event by Robert Fletcher. Just 10 minutes into Robert's session I was captivated by him, his humble nature and extraordinary experiences of helping people tap into the power of their unconscious minds to heal, develop and live freer and happier lives. He gave example after example of how he was able to help people improve both their mental and physical wellbeing. Amazing examples of his gentle approach achieving magnificent results. By the end of the session I had signed up for his London training full of enthusiasm and wonder.

I spent three weeks learning with Robert and the other delegates on his programme, including Fiona Sunderland and Rob Massie founders of TPM Europe. These sessions were somewhat overwhelming and inspiring whilst the techniques proved to be surprisingly straightforward.

For me thought pattern management is a synthesis of powerful principles, tools and techniques to educate, communicate and bring about changes within the mind and body in a natural and ecological way.

In TPM Robert seems to have streamlined the best of NLP and hypnosis to allow individuals to feel totally safe and comfortable while their unconscious mind gets on with the productive change work.

Q. How do you use TPM?

TPM is an important part of my coaching facilitation and development toolkit. TPN has become a staple in my coaching and therapy practice and is equally useful and effective in the generative role as in my remedial work. TPM principles permeate most of my work and perhaps my life too. I work with clients to help them explore their mental landscapes, clean up past memories and take powerful learnings from experiences and support them in achieving greater congruence and alignment as they move forward in their lives.

As a master NLP practitioner and with training in hypnotherapy I have many tools in my toolkit to help clients. In practice, my choice of approach is determined in the moment in response to the client. What I am realising over time is that I am using TPM more and more as clients achieve the results they want so much swifter.
