Hypnosis, learning and memory

All great teachers understand that they do not really teach. They have simply found a way to tap into the innate ability of students to learn. What distinguishes great teachers from the mundane is their capacity to engage students. This involves more than simply making material interesting and inspiring. Great teachers build the belief in students that they are capable of mastering any subject matter.

To learn effectively students need to be able to manage their own thoughts and feelings effectively. They need to acquire knowledge and skills, to master techniques and disciplines and to be able to remain calm and focused when the pressure is on. They need to want to do these things and to believe that doing so will be of real benefit to them.

At Noadswood secondary school, in Dibden Purlieu I have been working with teachers to help them use relentlessly positive presuppositions, memory journeys, neuro linguistic programming and techniques commonly used in hypnotherapy to elevate engagement, self-belief and achievement. By training teachers and students to harness the power of their own minds, access optimum states and recall information easily, students have begun to improve results and engage in deeper learning, including some who might otherwise have been disaffected.

I am now offering a comprehensive training programme for teaching staff and their students so that they can learn these techniques. The programme provides the equivalent of a master practitioner programme in NLP combined with several classroom demonstrations and collaborations for participating teachers.

It runs for a whole term and teachers who sign up will be expected to commit to 6 hours per week training for 12 weeks. We will run the programme from midday until 7 or 8pm one day per week. In addition I will demonstrate and use these techniques in tutor and year groups, collaborate in scheduled lessons and engage in lesson preparation with teachers as required.

The aim of such a programme is to target enhanced achievement at any selected assessment level including GCSE level as well as contributing to overall engagement and behaviour for learning.

About Harvey Taylor

Hi. I'm Harvey Taylor. I moved to Shrewsbury in September 2021. These days I am mainly focused on creating art, writing and telling stories for children and adults, performing mad poetry and delivering public speaking. You can find some of my old, and most of of my recent output at harveytaylor.uk There will also be any updates there about upcoming events. I also created Richard the Bear and soon there will be more Richard the Bear stories and art available at this site too. I also look after an elephant called Uncle Oojah who celebrated his 100th anniversary on 18th Feb 2019. Check out www.uncleoojah.com
