Error Correction Methods
Hypnosis is one of the world's greatest self-improvement tools that easily reaches one's subconscious mind, allowing one to question, understand and reprogramme erroneous thinking. NLP is an acronym standing for Neuro Linguistic Programming. It is both a subset of and an extension to hypnosis and is used extensively in business to help client-facing personnel to better read, influence and persuade their customers. When used in a therapeutic context, it has enormous power to establish trust and rapport and to collapse and reframe old operating patterns of behaviour. In the same way a personal trainer assists one with one's physical exercise regimes, coaching helps one set and achieve personal goals for one's betterment.
Thomas has had intensive training and experience in all of these error correction methods.
They are a set of powerful tools in my toolbox and I use each of them extensively in the sessions I have with my clients, he says.
Each has its own special purpose. Just as one wouldn't use a screwdriver to drive home a nail, I would not use any of these specialised tools for the wrong purpose. Clients and I usually need a bit of compassionate consulting before we agree on what needs to be done and how we shall go about implementing it. That's when therapy kicks in. Towards the end of our process, in some of our final sessions, coaching and mentoring help bring it all together.
Thomas is known for teaching. His student are therapists who practise alternative healthcare, and medical professionals spread across many different science disciplines.
Overall it was just so wonderful to reconnect with you and it really felt timeless. You are indeed a most special soul and I thank you for the safe space and for being such an important person to connect with along my journey. — CD, Psychotherapist.
I was very happy with the session and even though it made me irritated, angry, grumpy, sad, felt sorry for myself, I will certainly be back and trust that you may very well be able to 'fix' me. — HvL, Mechanical Engineer
Thank you that you were willing to see me. You helped me to understand myself better. With time more things will clear in my mind, but this morning was the first morning I woke up with a feeling of love and peace and joy. I am slowly but surely understanding the concept of self-love and gratitude for everything and everyone. Thank you very much again. — JF, Fund Raiser
I thought that the session that I had with you was just what I needed to unearth one of the 'stumbling blocks' in my life. I thought it really worthwhile and I know I rambled on relentlessly, but I think that you uncovered exactly what I needed to. I also used the information in a session of thought re-patterning the following day, which helped me to unravel other stuff stemming from that source. You have a gentle and approachable style, which makes it easy to communicate and share. I feel as though I've moved miles away from where I was and although I think I still have 'stuff' to work through, this in-road has made a difference. My husband told me that my eyes 'have come alive' again! — JP, Mom and Wife
It is seldom that you come across a 'soul' who reaches out and just provides such a safe and secure environment that we are able to drop our 'man-made masks'. Thank you for relighting the candle inside of me. You are 'mentor in a million'. May you be richly blessed in return for your outpouring of love and compassion - you will touch many more people in the future I am sure. — DvdW
Thank you for this morning and helping me discover so much about myself. Currently I am completely overwhelmed and do not know how to contain my thoughts and emotions. I want nothing more than to hold on to the peace and tranquillity I felt, which I haven't felt since I was a child. I felt so safe and secure with you there and I just wanted to thank you for being so gentle with my memories and emotions and helping me face these monsters I have obviously been afraid of for so long. — LD
I would like to say a special thanks to Tom as my mentor, teacher and the person who reviewed my assignment ahead of my submitting the work to the SAIH. Without Tom's enthusiasm and his excellent way of working with his students I would not have been able to deliver the sort of work that the SAIH expects from its students. — GP, Hypnotherapy Student
Your generosity of spirit, time, expertise and caring has touched me profoundly. — JP
Mr Budge has really been of great assistance for several years in patients where subconscious stressors and drivers have caused patients to have physical illness or emotional issues. As such he has been of huge help with patients suffering with affective disorders, phobias, anxiety issues and suicidal ideation. At the same time he has referred patients to me where he considers medication to be of value so is not messianic in believing that hypnotism is the cure for all ills!! I can highly recommend him in helping patients understand that there are emotional drivers that have to be managed and that pills are not always enough. — Dr Richard Brink, Specialist Family Physician, Cedar Road, Fourways
