Is your child happy with healthy self concepts?

by Sonya Yeh Spencer, ITA Certified NLP Trainer, Certified Advanced NLP Coach

It makes good sense to help children learn how to do self-self comparison to build healthy self-esteem and concepts; in fact it is our responsibility to do so.

But it does not mean that parents or caregivers should go to the extreme to exaggerate their children’s achievement and build an overly inflated self image.

Research shows that adults who make self-to-self comparisons often are more successful and experience less personal stress than those who are driven by comparisons to others – like an Olympic performer, striving for their personal best.

Bully or Victim – What can you do?

By Mark Spencer, ITA NLP Trainer, Advanced NLP Coach

A new analysis reveals that bullies and victims share more similarities than we might think, with one stand-out difference. Christie Nicholson reports from http://www.scientificamerican.com

This is a long post, so this is a few quicklinks to parts of the entry:

Cyber-bullying is only part of it, just a growing part. Bullying happens in so many contexts.

We might think that bullies are quite different from the victims of bullying. But those who become either a bully or a victim actually share similar outlooks and have similar difficulties dealing with their environments. There is, however, one significant risk factor for bullying.


Researchers reviewed and analyzed 153 studies and found that Continue reading “Bully or Victim – What can you do?”

Public workshop – Thursday, 28 August 08. Topic: Forgive and Remember

NLP Café Brisbane How do we go about forgiving the unforgivable? Many people have said they couldn’t possibly forgive certain acts, certain ways they were treated; in fact it is irrational to forgive for some people. A rational person, when hurt, should react to protect themselves for as long as it is necessary to ensure survival, but at what cost? To forgive does not mean to forget. The challenge here is to forgive and learn so it will never happen again! Learn the power of forgiving and remembering – this is a wonderful pattern developed by Robert MacDonald with great compassion.

For Therapist: Enhance your skills by learning a pattern that will greatly help your client with gentleness and minimum contamination of the client’s model of the world.
For Parents and Managers: Master this skill and use yourself as an example for people who are in your life.
For Individuals: Create new depth of self understanding, profound insight and the power of choices in life.

Opening Hours – Registration: 6:15pm, Starts: 6:30pm, Finishes: 8:30pm

One moment you are passing through more fast flowing water, and the next you are thrown over the falls and into a boiling mass

Help your children to build healthy self concepts

by Sonya Yeh Spencer

Research shows that adults who make self-to-self comparisons often are more successful and experience less personal stress than those who are driven by comparisons to others – like an Olympic performer, striving for their personal best.

Comparing yourself to others is natural for all of us, but it is only helpful if we are inspired by other’s achievements and strive to realise our potential. When comparing with others, it creates a sense of “I can never do it” or in some cases “shame” or negative self-image; the comparison is impacting on our self-esteem.

Self-other comparison is one of the major causes of low self-esteem. When children or adults compare themselves with others, they often experience emotional Continue reading “Help your children to build healthy self concepts”
