Self Change Artistry

A one-day workshop on effective self-change!


This is a workshop covering the skills, attitudes and understandings necessary to become a master of self-change!

14th April 2013 – Letchworth Garden City, UK


“As an adult, change in real terms is almost impossible (no matter what one type of therapy or another tells you), we are all pretty much stuck with who we are. Not great when your a psychopath, but we all have our own cross to bear.”

About Self-Change Artistry

Of all the species on planet earth, human beings are, without doubt, the paragon of learners, self changers and self developers. No other species would seem to have nearly the level of ability that we have for self reflection, perspective taking and problem solving, and as such, it is likely that we are the only species with a true capacity to become self authoring.

Yet for many people change seems impossible – they try and try again, but hard as they try, the results seem insignificant (as was the case with the person quoted above).

Over the years that I have been a Changework practitioner and professional change consultant, I have encountered many people who have struggled with self change, but I have also been fortunate to have met many who are highly adept at the practise.

People who are able to step out of themselves and look and how they are being and doing, make adjustments, then step back in and enjoy the difference.

So what is the difference?

In my experience, those who are really good at self change have a collection of skills, attitudes and understandings that, when taken together, I call…

A high quality Learning and Change Engine!

And those who don’t do not. Without question, developing a high quality Learning and Change Engine takes some time and application, but it is an investment of time that is well worth making.

Self Change Artistry is all about building into yourself a high quality Leaning and Change Engine.

We will spend the day covering the fundamental skills, understandings and attitudes from which it is built, along with looking at some ongoing practises for development.

What We Will be Covering

This is both a practical and theoretical workshop (the theory underpins the practice!). The aim of the day is to equip you to build the ‘manoeuvrability of consciousness’ required to disembed from your ‘trances/hypnotic loops/patterns’ (see video below!) and the like and make changes to them.

We will be developing skills around…

  • Attending to internal feedback (based in Gendlin’s focusing)
  • Sensitising to the impact of differing ‘semantic organisations’
  • Developing internalised self-coaching (self-hypnosis?) processes and protocols
  • Learning to constructively manage ‘evidence filtering’ (to overcome confirmation bias that keeps us stuck, and gather evidence to build a more functional perception set)
  • Avoiding the pitfalls of ‘obvious change logic’ (that doesn’t work, yet seems so obvious and plausible that we keep going for it).
  • Recognising and separating Resource and Anti-Resource patterns

How much time is spent on each element will depend upon the emergent make-up and needs of the group.

    Great post James. IMO the suggestions that we give to ourselves are usually going to be the most powerful and overriding ones.
