Cognitive reprocessing


Product Description

Cognitive reprocessing

Almost all learning, behaviour and change is done at an Unconscious level, so if we are experiencing things we don’t want in life, the place to start is inside our unconscious mind.

Cognitive reprocessing developed  by

A unique combination of Neuroscience the why it works: and integrated modalities, what to do and how to facilitate adaptive behavioural, emotional change

The combustion engine to change

It incorporates ideas, techniques and strategies from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychology concepts , Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) , fitness, nutrition, physiological, emotional intelligence , neuroscience, neuroplasticity binding them together with hypnotic language to create a powerful  intervention.

Concepts reach areas of the brain that were formed early in phylogenetic history ; they reach primitive sides of the brain, the hypothesised focus of maladaptive psychological patterns. Problems are lodged in the limbic areas of the brain, the emotional /social centre. If problems were located in pre frontal cortex, the reasoning centre , they would be easy to resolve-an instruction manual would suffice. In contradistinction, conceptual communication must be lived so that adaptive states an identities can be realised . We sculpt our brain according to our lived experiences,

Providing an effective and powerful framework for practitioners to use in helping clients achieve positive change in their lives.

Hypnotherapy is a natural, safe, client-based approach that uses the natural trance states that we all experience every day, like when you have been so absorbed in your own thoughts that you didn’t see a friend when you passed them in the street, or when you are driving and get to your destination but have no recollection of the journey.

Research suggests that we spend much of our day in such a state so I don’t have to do anything special to you to get you into a trance, you are already very good at doing it for yourself!

In Cognitive reprocessing  we use this natural trance state to help uncover the unconscious feelings, thoughts and memory patterns that lead to your problem and which continue to maintain it.

Between the ages of 0-6, our brain is in a highly receptive state, our filters which process information are raw and undeveloped, the brain becomes programmed from what we experience, see and hear. This forms the wiring of our brain and becomes our thought patterns, values, beliefs, perceptions and feelings about our self, life and others. The programming continues as we get older, however the first 6 years are extremely formative. This programming either supports or hinders our the quality of your life.


Several breakthrough studies suggest that we may have more control over how our brains function and develop throughout adulthood—our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions—than previously assumed.

Why does this matter? Because by learning how to control our mentality, we may be able to deliberately reshape our neural pathways and rewire our brains to make ourselves more successful and fulfilled. In other words, shape your brain and you can shape your life.

Cognitive reprogramming is about ‘waking the person up’ so that they can regain control of unwanted behaviours or ways of thinking that they feel are holding them back, or having a significant negative impact on their life.

It is a very collaborative therapy: the therapist works together with the client, assisting them to find their own solutions. Cognitive hypnotherapy works with the client’s model and experience of the world, choosing the most appropriate interventions for each individual.

The principle behind Cognitive reprocessing  is that thoughts affect a person’s emotions and behaviours. When a person suffers with psychological distress, the way in which they interpret situations becomes skewed, which in turn has a negative impact on the actions they take.

Cognitive reprocessing  aims to help people become aware of when they make negative interpretaions, and of behavioural patterns which reinforce the distorted thinking. Cognitive reprogramming helps people to develop alternative ways of thinking and behaving which reduce the psychological distress.

This course is in no way a replacement for any prescribed medication; nor is it intended to contraindicate or supersede any medically diagnosed conditions or designed to treat anyone or make any recommendation’s learners deploy techniques as part of any treatment plan. The course is for educational purposes

The quality of your life is largely determined by the quality of the mental states you live in day to day – states like gratitude, love, anger, happiness, fear and excitement. There are two main ways to control your state of mind. Either by controlling the way you use your physical body, or by controlling your focus of attention and the way you interpret it. What happens in your life does not determine how you feel? How you feel is only the result of how you are using your own mind and body at any moment…

“Dear Jim,
You are a ray of light. I think that what you stand for and represent is so very vital in our society right now, both in the future of young lives and older generations alike. As a practitioner your natural ability is clear and a visible inspiration to others. There is no doubt too that lives were changed for the better during our course through hearing your thoughts and insights as well as the content itself. I felt your solutions based approach was music to my ears and am looking forward to putting all of these powerful strategies into practice in my own life and with clients. These techniques will have a positive impact on all whose lives I touch from this point on and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. My warmest wishes extend to you for better than expected success in your own goals and achievement of your vision. I will look forward to our paths crossing again.”

I have been focusing on self improvement in the last 6 months and I must say this is the best talk I have ever attended. The speaker was very engaging and I took away lots to think about. It Is great that each week is a different speaker from a different professional background. I look forward to the other talks this month I signed up to!

Jimmy was really engaging and knowledgeable. He kept me interested for the full two hours (which is hard to do!) and I look forward to attending other interesting talks meetings in the future.

Dominicgeneral Testimonials
“I have been co-delivering workshops and doing interviews with Jim and had an amazing time during it. Jim has such a deep knowledge of the human behaviour and expertise on how to help people change it. Our interviews and workshops have mainly been around human mind as I am a neuroscientist and I was genuinely impressed with Jim’s knowledge about the human brain and deep interest in this area. I have no doubt that with his profound understanding behaviour and the root causes of it and enormous experience in NLP, hypnotherapy and other techniques Jim can handle any case of changing human behaviour and pioneer new techniques of how to do it. I also believe Jim is a great researcher and can achieve lots in this area too. It is always a real joy and bunch of insight working with him so would highly recommend it to anyone!”
Gabija Toleikyte, Ph.D“Jimmy was pivotal part of all the football programmes broadcast on Sky Sports Radio between 2006-2011. His insightful understanding and detailed analysis were integral to the success of the Football at Five show which was broadcast five times a week as well as the Live and Exclusive coverage of the 2009/10 English Premier League. Jim also played a key role in the daily World Cup show in 2010. I look forward to future collaboration with Jim in any football show I present or produce.” ANDREW PASCHALIDIS FOOTBALL PRESENTER, SKY SPORTS RADIO & RACING“

“My Son Jordan visits Jim once a year for a 6 weeks course, he has been going to see Jim since he was 14. He has always been a Talented Footballer, but he needed something extra to help him achieve his Football Goals. I can say that the time he has spent with Jim has changed my Sons life both on and off the Football Field. with all the help and advise he has given him both Physical and mentally. My Son now has a 2 year Professional Football Contract; visits Jim every year for top up sessions We cant thank Jim enough for everything he has done to help Jordan achieve his Goals and I don’t think my Son would be were he is today if we hadn’t met Jim.”
