    The whole approach sounds pretty sick and abusive:

    Yet it's heartening to see that others remain in gainful employment providing such a useful service as NLP. Where is the tongue in cheek smiley? Never mind. This one will do. :vomit:

    I'm reminded of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" - 'THEY'RE ALREADY HERE!"

    Yes, the likes of A4e, Seetek and Ingeus (now part of a larger US firm) make a lot of money out this. And Googling A4e returns some interesting, not to say alarming, results (major fraud, anyone?).

    What on earth is it costing the DWP to contract to companies like A4e who then subcontract NLP "master practitioner" outfits ... ?

    The campaign group Refuted has been raising this stuff for a while: https://wwwrefuteddotorgdotuk.wordpress.com/2014/01/02/sanctionshappy/

    p.s. searching on "inspire nlp", the top result is for this outfit: http://www.inspire360.co.uk/our-services/nlp-training/nlp-master-practitioner/

    I just love the introduction for their Master Practitioner training course:

    
    Apart from the repetition of "whole new level" in the the space of two short sentences, not to mention the inexplicable capitalisation of "World" or the missing apostrophe after "clients", I'm struck by the reference to "personal change technology". What's that, then?

  11. And actual language used by UK government ministers at times have been almost direct quotes from the start f the Third Reich

    And this one uses the actual words of our Prime Minister from a recent speech

    Too horrified once again to even put together a response but @SilverbladeTE summed it up pretty well. I can't fathom what is going on in the UK and all we see in the media here in the US are stories about the Royal Family. No one knows this stuff is going on, it is hidden so well.

    No. It wouldn't surprise me if he was aware that this was an area where he was vulnerable, and was trying to position himself though.

    One of the tricks of the PR trade is to keep rebranding dodgy products.

    How many labels is it now? BPS. MUS. SSD... I can't keep track of them any more.

    I predict if a cure (or major treatment) is found Wessely will put himself at the front and centre of the media spotlight, waxing lyrical about how wonderful science is and how 'we' have discovered this fantastic new therapy.

    A man for all seasons is a man for none at all.

    To be honest, I'd still love to see that happen.
