feedback from Core Beliefs workshops

“I’m grateful for Graham’s experience with core beliefs and the way he facilitated the dancefloor exercise, which brought it alive for me; and for his more edgy, disruptive way of working.” A.L., Colchester, October 2018.

“Gratitude for the care and support showed by Graham during the [Core Beliefs] process he facilitated for me – deeply moved by the transformative effects I felt as a result of the process.” A.Wilson, Colchester, October 2018.

“A powerful workshop! Rich, insightful – the core beliefs work was incredibly moving! Fun and clear energy and presence”. J.W., Colchester, October 2018.

“Enjoyed the process of going from triggers to core beliefs – very useful and helped me to understand more of myself.” Barney Phillips, Colchester, October 2018.

“Graham delivered another set of really challenging and effective workshops … The workshops on shame and core beliefs had a great impact on me – bringing together a lot of strands that I’d been working on for the last few years. I like his style of delivery: direct and supportive – creating an environment to maximise safety and learning. Thank you, Graham – I look forward to working with you again soon.” Sam Dods, Cambridge, August 2018.

“Thanks for holding the perfect space for me to unfold my unresolved past! My first learning about core beliefs was as an observer at your workshop at Rainbow Mill in 2016, which I found powerful, with your expertise, humour, holding and safety for the participants. This year I felt ready to do my own process, and to shake off a core belief of my own. There’s a weight lifted off my shoulders now, can’t wait to get back to do more!”  Catriona Lawless, Galway, Eire, August 2018.

“Thank you for your workshop on “Changing Core Beliefs”. I found it inspiring and useful as it had an immediate result. Your use of tools from (amongst others) Non-violent Communication and NLP, combined with your personal skills, were the basis of an energy that was of great help to the process of your client. I especially liked your integrity towards yourself and your client.” Benine van Vloten, Venlo, Netherlands, June 2018.

“Graham offered a core beliefs process which I accepted, curious to see if I really had any such limiting beliefs holding me back. As an experienced NVC practitioner and CNVC certified trainer, I was surprised to quickly find at least 3 such solid core beliefs. We took one of them to work with, about it being ‘my fault’ if people around me got unhappy. The process was very deep, tender, sometimes funny, surprising, touching and transformative at the end!
One week later the same triggers came up in my life, but this time I reacted differently, without a shade of guilt; I was able to protect myself and keep my dignity intact, instead of being dependent on the other person’s reaction. And I continued to feel care for the other person throughout the encounter. The process has already brought me more ease and competence in handling difficult situations without judging and blaming myself. Thank you Graham!” Agnieszka Pawlik, Wroclaw, Poland, February 2017.

“I would like to thank you, Graham, for taking me through your ‘Transforming Core Beliefs’ dance floor process at camp this summer. I felt very held and secure, and I liked the way you gently guided me at each step, encouraging me to find my truth. (The) workshop has opened up a new way of relating to myself … a new relationship with how I could be within a group of people – definitely more ease, more acceptance of myself.” J.W., August 2017

“The workshop on Transforming Core Beliefs was a very moving experience and it felt very relevant to me. I was glad to witness Graham gently guiding another participant through the process he has developed. I would happily attend another session on this subject.” Marta Pascual Argente, London, August 2017.

“I really enjoyed the Core Beliefs process we did today, your guidance Graham was very clear. I also enjoyed that you put a lot of energy into getting to the core/root of our beliefs by distilling our thoughts, ideas and feelings.
Many needs of mine were met, (such as) inclusion, acceptance, safety, learning, authentic connection and communication and I’m hopeful and excited about what the future will bring now that I said good bye to one of my strongest core beliefs. Thank you Graham for holding the workshop”. Alexandra Lupu, London, July 2017.

“Graham is an assured practitioner, creating safe spaces for people to explore themselves and practise their growth. Very well run and relaxed [Core Beliefs] workshop.” Tom Hitchman, London, July 2017.

“Thanks, Graham – I loved the care for all, inclusiveness and know-how you brought to the [Core Beliefs] workshop, which met my needs for learning and healing”. Rich Waring, Reading, July 2017.

“I have experienced the transformative power of this [Core Beliefs] process & heartily recommend it as a very important healing tool. Graham facilitates the process sensitively & with authority.”  Peter B., Reading May 2017.

“Going through the [Core Beliefs] process was easier than I expected. You were very patient and present without being too intense or expecting, so you gave a lot of space for a genuine response. I had a sense of being protected in a serious but playful way, which supported without creating attachment, if you know what I mean… I  guess I mean, you got out of the way of the flow while expertly directing it when required. So it felt like my achievement that you had merely facilitated.

I admired the way you managed the very tricky moment of looking back and seeing how to incorporate all the met and unmet needs into a new thinking. That seemed quite fluent and natural as people went through it, but actually was very skilfully done. You almost casually offered different thoughts and alternatives, intuitively fishing through everything to find the key elements, recalling things said and the emotional emphasis expressed  at the start of the process that I had already forgotten about. Thank you.” Dorothy O’Grady, Colchester, August 2016.

“Graham supported me and others through a wonderfully effective [Core Beliefs] process for moving beyond old patterns that no longer serve us, in a way that’s dynamic, and creative, and healing, and freeing. It’s also pretty good fun! More please!” Rich Waring, Reading, August 2016.

“During the core belief process I felt really safe. It was easy for me to trust you and open up, so that I could get in touch with my emotions and was not afraid to show them. You gave me time when I needed it and you got me to move when it was necessary so that at the end I was able to fully embrace my new belief”. Andreas Hechenberger, Salzburg, Austria, July 2016.

“I felt safe and supported doing the [Core Beliefs] process, and appreciated your presence, flexibility, understanding and empathy”. Ulrike K, Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal, November 2015
