Cartesian Co-ordinates

Descarte postulated that he could prove a theorem by testing it in four quadrants. The quadrants are the theorem, the opposite of the theorem, the inverse of the theorem and the non-mirror image reverse of the theorem. He said that if the theorem is proved in all four quadrants then the theorem is true. We can use this concept with problems. Since no problem is actually true, it will not prove in all four quadrants. Once a client has the experience of it not proving in all quadrants they begin to have doubts about their problem or it totally disappears.

Cause & Effect

It seems to be a law of the universe that everything that happens has a cause. You do not just get things happening without there being a cause for it. When you think that something or someone other than you causes the things that happen in your life then you have no power to change. The key to empowering yourself is to put yourself at cause for the things that happen in your universe. It does not matter whether you really do cause everything that happens in your life; if you think you do, you will always have options, choices, and something to do to change what is happening.

Chunking Up and Down

A set of questions that enable you to control the level of abstraction someone is using.

Content or Meaning Reframe

Context Reframe

A conversational technique that enables you to change the meaning of an event by shifting the context that someone is thinking of in relation to that event.. In NLP we say that all meaning is context dependent. For instance, when it is 75 degrees in London, we think it is a lovely day. If you had the same day on holiday in the Caribbean you would be disappointed. Milton Erickson used a brilliant context reframe with some parents who were complaining that their daughter was too headstrong. He reframed them by saying that they must feel so good in the knowledge that their daughter would be safe and know her own mind when it was time for her to leave home.

Contrastive Analysis

A submodality’s technique that enables you to distinguish the different ways someone codes their thinking. For instance: for a moment think of someone you really like, get a picture of them and notice where that picture is located in your visual field (i.e. up and to the right or straight in front). Now clear the screen and do the same for someone you really dislike or like least. Are the two pictures located in different places? If they are, then you just used contrastive analysis to determine how you code like and dislike of people you know.
