The Art of Frameshifting

Frameshifting is an effective and very conversational tool that can affect change by firing neurological connections in our clients. The objective of frame shifting is to take attention away from a habit or behaviour and to change the context, meaning or content, thus enabling us to change the perspective or meaning to a more empowering one. 

Within this first session of the Achology NLP Training Triads we explore and unpack the two main types of frame shifting:  context reframe and meaning reframe. We offer a framework for practice within the training session.

Identify and Create Anchors

NLP anchoring uses a stimulus; it may be a sound, an image, a touch, a smell or a taste that can trigger a repeated response in yourself or in someone else. When something is “anchored”, we react without thinking. Although anchors can be beneficial, some anchors can hold us back or are downright painful. When we use NLP anchoring in coaching, we deliberately break those painful or unhelpful associations and replace those with new, more empowering ones.

structured training programme

Association and Dissociation

One of the most important sub modality distinctions in NLP is the difference between being ‘associated’ within ourselves and being ‘dissociated' from ourselves. Being able to transition between each of these two states of being allows us to experience different emotional and cognitive viewpoints, and moving between the two is one of the most effective means by which we can gain a massive shift in the way we perceive things.

Within this third session of the Achology NLP Training Triads we will explore the difference between associated and dissociated states, and provide you with a framework that you can use to help your client move from an associated to a dissociated state.  

six-week triads programme

Perceptual Positions

To improve our communication skills, become more influential, build and maintain rapport, and demonstrate empathy for other people we need to be able to understand another person's perspective. This is a fundamental skill that a Coach and a Practitioner must have.

In this session, we practice the ability to take on perceptual positions -a systematic way of shifting from one position (perspective) to another. You can use the Perceptual Positions Technique to improve your understanding of others, think more creatively and objectively; get a better understanding of the impact of your verbal and non-verbal behaviour on others – and gain a deeper understanding of the impact another’s behaviour has on you.

community driven training

Future Pacing

Future pacing is a type of mental imagery, a powerful way to anchor or connect changes and resources to future situations or a particular event. This technique uses the skills we have practiced in “association/dissociation” and the anchoring exercises.

life coaching triads

Cartesian Coordinates

Cartesian coordinates are very simple questions that we can use to explore the outcomes, consequences and the overall ecology of a decision we are pondering. The purpose of Cartesian coordinate questions is not just to notice what answers our clients gives us; it's also to begin loosening up their model of the world as they start examining the limits of their boundaries.
