    Excerpt:

    The FightWorks Podcast: So what tools do you use?

    Eamonn Madden: The main tools that I find really work well with my clients are a blend of sports hypnosis and NLP – neural linguistic programming. I view it as the equivalent of installing new ’software’ for the brain.

    The FightWorks Podcast: Really? You can literally reprogram the brain, like some sort of computer?


    Hope you enjoy, thanks.

    Interesting stuff.

    The mind must surely be the most important thing to get right?

    I trained at BJJ school for a month and I have to say that I found Eamonn to be an incredible coach and an utterly decent guy.

    Yup, Eamonn is a cool guy, very friendly, very approachable. Whether you believe in psychoanalysis methods used or not, he seems to be generating great success with his clients, so good luck to him.

    An interesting and maybe valuable way to consider Hypnosis and NLP is to understand that we are in fact very seldom out of preconditioned behaviour which we might consider as a form of reflexive trances as they are based on our beliefs and values which are generalisations based on our perspective of our life experiences.
    Our beliefs and values are hard wired into our neural path over years and become reflexive responses so we are in fact behaving not to what is confronting us with free will but with a very narrow set of predetermined set of responses, all of which have positive intention but may not serve us well in all situations.
    Hypnosis/NLP offers a set of tools to step out of our everyday trances and become more fully present and aware of the process of what is happening to us outside of our conscious awareness and maybe choose to adjust them toward improving our interactions with our environment
