    Tom Hanchen was a long-standing members of NLPtCA. He was an NLP therapist and supervisor with a particular interest in therapeutic hypnosis. He was active in the association and his practice even after he was diagnosed with cancer many years ago.

    Here is a link of Tom being interviewed by Noel Bell about 'Quantum Leaps in the Evolution of Therapeutic Hypnosis' which starts with Tom telling a little story about his name and his background.

    Attached is an article Tom wrote with Martin Weaver about supervision, one of his passions and contributions to NLPtCA. Hanchen-Weaver Article - NLP Supervision.pdf.pdf

    Tribute from Penny Tompkins

    Tom managed to live with his various forms of cancer for many years. He loved to read thrillers based on where the stories were set:  "from down south in deep Louisiana to the chill winds across the bleak Yorkshire dales."

    And to give you a flavour of his humour and spirit, here is a quote from correspondence I had with him in about a year ago:

    "Apart from looking forward to three months chemotherapy I am exceedingly well. Playing with my new band St.Christopher's Hospice BadAss Blues Band (the three of us have bowel cancer)!"

    He was a gentle man, with a kind heart, who was committed to using all his experience to serve his clients and supervisees. James and I were lucky to have had him in our life.

    Tribute from Juliet Grayson

    Although I knew him quite well by then, my strongest memory of Tom is when we were both students on a 3 or 4 day workshop at the old faithful, the Columbia Hotel in Lancaster Gate, London W.2.  This would have been in about 1996, and I think it might have been a workshop with Stephen Gilligan. 

    I was in a group of 3 with Tom for the whole workshop.  His deep, gravelly voice was perfect for the trance work we were practicing with each other.  He was a generous man, with a delightful playful quality, and a very big heart.   I have always had a deep affection and respect for him. 

    In recent years I have been vaguely aware of, and appreciative of his work behind the scenes in NLPtCA.  Although our contact over the years was only occasional, the last time being in August 2020, I feel a gap, where he used to be.  For anyone who'd like to hear a bit of Tommy's wisdom, I would recommend watching the video of his interview with Noel Bell about 'Quantum Leaps in the Evolution of Therapeutic Hypnosis'

    The Dynamics of the Man

    – An interview with Tony Clarkson as he retires from NLPtCA

    Last month the NLPtCA Team received a farewell email from Tony Clarkson letting us know that he was retiring and giving a short but intriguing summary of his association with NLP, Neurolinguistic Psychotherapy, the ANLP and NLPtCA. He packed a lot into about four lines.

    So, we decided to find out about bit more about Tony and his career.  Board Member Patty Everitt  arranged to talk with Tony about his journey with NLP and NLPt.  She says: “It was a real pleasure to “meet” him.”

    Tony was introduced to NLP at a time, like many others, when he was suffering. Read more...

    On Saturday 22nd June the NLPtCA held its Annual Event at the Mechanics Institute in Manchester – a building with a history and a half!

    Our Annual Conference event is the time when NLPt colleagues get together to renew friendships, catch up on what we are all doing, to hear about new and current topics and to consolidate our understanding and practice … and it was great to feel the buzz and energy in the room!

    We were also most pleased to welcome non-NLPt colleagues to the event.

    All three of our speakers were very well received by their audience and we send our thanks to all three. See the photos!

    Our special thanks go to our Guest Speaker, Mary-Clare de Echevarria who spoke with authority and compassion about working with the body to resolve and heal trauma. The experiential context of her presentation and the personal insights brought the subject alive.

    Neurolinguistic psychotherapist and NLPtCA member Sharon Rooke focused on self-supervision in the context of vicarious trauma using Virginia Satir’s intrapsychic model and some gentle exercises designed to help us notice our own approach to self -care.

    Her audience found ideas in her presentation relevant to them regardless of the types of clients they work with.

    Neurolinguistic psychotherapist and NLPtCA member Malcolm Bray gave us a most spirited presentation covering his work with clients carrying the diagnosis of non-specific illness. This is a challenging “condition” for both client and therapist.  He talked through case studies of clients identifying with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The case study highlighted useful approaches even for those of us who do not often work with these types of client.

    Read about what our delegates said about the event:

    “Good useful day, rich in information and learning”

    "I found it very interesting hearing about … how to work with the body with traumatised clients"

    "Sharon’s approach to self-supervision in potential situations of vicarious trauma was very helpful."

    "This was not an area with which I was familiar – some fascinating insights from Malcolm."

    Last weekend, 407 attendees from over 20 countries converged at the NLP International Conference. There was buzz and energy, lively conversation and joy as friends met again and new friends were made.

    The organisation of the conference and attention to detail was super; the programme, quality of the speakers and their presentations were first rate. The common areas where participants mixed and mingled, debated and discussed and found sustenance, wandered and engaged with the Exhibitors were bright and colourful and felt big enough to accommodate the mass of souls and small enough to be welcoming and accessible. The sounds of chatter and laughter was energising.

    The NLPtCA were delighted to be part of all of this. Folk at all stages of their NLP journey stopped to talk to us at our stand. We learned how they use NLP: for themselves, as part of their day-to-day work, as coaches and consultants, counsellors and mentors, within the medical professions and all sizes of companies and corporates. When we parted company they left knowing that Neurolinguistic Psychotherapy is a path they could choose to take and left us knowing a little more about their world, their challenges and expectations and what this would mean for them if they chose to follow the psychotherapy path.

    As NeuroLinguistic psychotherapists we were delighted to spend time back in the NLP community and to re-introduce ourselves to our community.

    In our Winter Newsletter we stated that the Therapist Map function was currently unavailable due to an increase in fees from the provider. The Board are addressing this matter and will ensure Members are kept updated with any progress.

    An issue has also since arisen with the Search All Therapists (SAT) function and as a temporary 'fix' this has been removed. However a full listing of members has been created on the SAT page, with a click through to your profiles still being available.

    The Board remain committed to continuing to work on improving the website.

    We know it can be a bit of a chore sometimes finding useful ways to keep up with your annual CPD requirements. That is why we have introduced a new book reviews section to the website (under Share your CPD).

    The first review is How Emotions Are Made - The Secret Life of the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.

    Remember, one share a month from each of us creates a rich source of CPD opportunities for all. Check out the book review section here.

    Whether you’re a therapist or a coach using NLPt, share relevant CPD activities and/or resources (books, courses, articles, video etc) you’ve experienced and we’ll share it here for all members to access. Each month we’ll highlight the latest CPD posts back to you.

    To share your CPD, or submit a book review, email: admin@nlptca.com
