Learn the Psychological Illusion Model with Jorgen Rasmussen in Australia

Jørgen Rasmussen is the Creator Of The Psychological Illusion Model and author of Provocative Hypnosis and Provocative Suggestions. He has been practicing change work for over 25 years and is an international trainer and speaker and has earned the endorsement of many reputable leaders in the field.

Jørgen has worked professionally as an ‘agent of change’ for over twenty years, eight of those running an “impossibles practice”, seeing clients who hadn’t succeeded with ‘traditional approaches’ on a “NO CHANGE NO PAY” basis! His work combines meditation, NLP (certified trainer), hypnosis and both western and eastern approaches to psychology. He is the author of the books “Provocative Hypnosis” and “Provocative Suggestions” which have been hugely well received by other leading peers. In fact, John Grinder (co-creator of NLP) says of his work… “this is the stuff of genius”! Jørgen also worked for sixteen years as a reality based self defence instructor.

My partner James and I are excited to be hosting Jorgen here in Australia so that you can benefit directly from his decades of experience as someone who is masterful in their approach to change work.

There are two options for you to access Jorgen while he is here.

Attend The Workshop and The Retreat.

The Psychological Illusion Model

Learn how to ‘De-Hypnotise’ your clients and help them more effectively with issues such as anxiety, depression chronic pain and trauma by helping them see through the psychological illusion it is based upon.

  • Learn to go back to the first principles of change and simplify your change work
  • Discover how understanding the psychological illusion model can make change work more effective
  • Find out how the mindsets of some therapists can hinder their effectiveness and how to overcome these challenges

Drawing on over 25 years of therapeutic practice, Jørgen Rasmussen shares his approach to therapeutic change and his experiences working with difficult or ‘impossible’ clients.  This has resulted in him simplifying his approach and going back to the first principles of change. This has led him to develop what he terms the ‘psychological illusion model’ of change work.  He also shares his discovery about how many therapists can become more effective by getting out of their own way.

Jørgen believes that almost all psychological suffering is the result of people falling for some simple psychological illusions and misunderstandings.

“This is my conclusion after twenty years of full time practice, eight of them running an ‘impossibles practice’ where I would work with people who had not succeeded in various form of therapy, and did so with a no change no pay policy.”

Imagine walking in the desert, suddenly you see a snake in front of you. Immediately, your heart begins to pound, your palms get sweaty, the mouth gets dry, and you have catastrophic thinking about being bitten. Imagine that you able to stop and take a closer look….and when you do so , you realise that there is no snake….its JUST A ROPE.

The moment you see that the snake is a rope its game over, you have seen through a psychological illusion. All the physiological responses subside just from seeing through the psychological illusion.

Jørgen believes what people call mental illness such as depression anxiety, phobias, compulsions, PTSD and trauma etc. are mostly just variations of seeing a snake where there really is just a rope.

The psychological illusion model of hypnosis and change work is an elegant and systematic way of using thought experiments, hypnotic phenomena, games and stories to help people penetrate the illusions that are behind their unnecessary suffering.

The model has been developed through twenty years of client work plus intense explorations of various schools of hypnosis, classic and new code NLP, rational emotive behaviour therapy, developmental psychology, the three principles and both progressive and direct paths of meditation.

Jørgen is convinced that:

“Working in this way is the easiest, fastest and most generative way I have found to work with most clients most of the time”.

Jorgen also believes that people attending any workshop should become co-creators of the workshop. In other words, it is skill as a trainer, that allows him to expose you to this material flexibly so that you get the information and skills YOU specifically need to understand and develop the artistry of this model.

So… put any thoughts of rigidly sticking to a powerpoint… out of your mind!!! Phew!!!

However, the event will include the following:

Direct Experience

Thought experiments, hypnotic phenomena, games and stories to help people penetrate the illusions that are behind their unnecessary suffering.
