What is NLP therapy? How can we pursue positivity to boost our well-being at work and at home? How can emotional intelligence make a difference in our lives?
A visit by “training with a difference” specialist Denise Devlin to the ProfileTree studio offered a chance to explore these topics and more.
The ‘Positive Parties’ Founder and CEO began by explaining the innovative work of Positive Parties and her own professional expertise.
“What we do is we deliver workshops and seminars promoting positive mental health and positive mental attitude in a unique, party-style environment.
“The idea came when I finished my NLP in 2009. My background is Community Development Education. I’m a Communication Studies graduate then became a life coach and NLP Practitioner.
“Neuro Linguistic Programming is our speech (neuro), our language (linguistic) and our behaviours, and it really is about teaching people how to think and feel and act differently. It’s all about ‘how’ we do things. It’s great for personal development and communication, it’s a fantastic tool.”
Denise outlined the vision she developed for bringing NLP into businesses in a new way: “I decided that I’d love to do training that would really take this into companies, but instead of doing handouts and presentations I wanted to make it interactive…I wanted to deliver something that would be positive and fun.”
This fresh experience for participants has been welcomed by businesses.
“As Einstein said ‘make it simple, make it fun’, so that is the whole ethos really behind it. It’s giving people all these tools and techniques, but when they come away from a Positive Party they have laughed and they have had so much fun because they’re going to learn then.
“They don’t go away with handouts that you’re just going to put in a top drawer and never look at again, they go away with party bags, they have prizes, lots of funny photographs will have been taken.”
But there’s science beneath the party approach: “Every tool and technique we do through the whole session of that day is teaching people how to be more positive, how to use brain tools and techniques to take away negative thinking, to look at stress, to look at mindfulness. It’s simple and it’s fun.”
