Jonathan Livingstone MA established his therapy & coaching practice in London in 1998. Determined to provide the most effective service possible, he studied and trained in a number of what are considered the most effective contemporary therapy and coaching models, including EMDR, kinesiology, hypnotherapy, NLP, TAT& EFT.
He has created a unique way of working, inspired by these powerful therapeutic models, which involves finding and resolving the origins of therapeutic problems so that they are permanently healed.
He is author of the booksThe Therapist Within You (Lemniscate, 2009) and Relearning Experience (in preparation), and a former director and elected board member of the UK Kinesiology Federation.
His clients include corporations and individuals from all backgrounds, races & sexual orientation – international athletes, titled persons, coaches & therapists, actors, college principals, medical doctors, chief executives, dancers, models, an ambassador. They consistently report achieving their desired outcomes, and often much more, after only a few consultations.
Very often, people don’t know exactly what the problem is, or what it is they want instead; and delineating the therapeutic problem and establishing the goal constitute the first task of the therapeutic process.
The therapeutic problem involves an uncomfortable feeling, even if you are not aware of the feeling (since it is feelings, not thoughts, that make you do things you don’t want to do or stop you from doing what you want to do – if it were simply thoughts, you could change them). The therapeutic problem also involves a disempowering belief – although this belief is usually unconscious.
The uncomfortable feeling and disempowering belief are inappropriate in the present circumstances and originate in the past. The second task – the special work of this therapy – involves identifying the experiences in the past that have created the disempowering belief and uncomfortable feeling – even if you have no idea where they may originate.
The third task is to resolve the past experiences that are the origins of the therapeutic problem. You will do this by revisiting and challenging the past experiences in such a way that you replace the original belief with a learning that is empowering.
Through this process the uncomfortable feeling and associated limiting belief dissolve; the therapeutic problem is healed; and your goal becomes attainable.
