I completed a Tony Quinn Seminar and, in essence, I have to say it has been one of the most incredible learnings of my lifetime. In every respect it has impacted on my life. Prior to going on the seminar, I was, what I would term, a compulsive learner. I had this insatiable need all of the time to be constantly learning. For me knowledge was power, knowledge was security and to be honest, it was an incredibly stressful time to be constantly keeping yourself abreast with that. I was feeling this constant lack of assurance or lack of capability in confidence about myself. I wasn’t expressing me at all – I was learning all of this knowledge from books, getting degrees etc. Having learned the Formative Learning principles, it taught me that I was going the wrong route and I found that an incredible learning. I’m really pleased that those learnings from the seminar gave me that capability to express myself.
Now that I’m a ‘happier camper’ this has sort of spilled over into all areas of my life – I was a bit of a stressed person before and that would have really effected my sleep. I would have had a few hours sleep from time to time but I’d never been able to relax – what I’d call restful sleep. I feel that I’m more relaxed and because I’m more relaxed I know that I sleep better, I know that my temperament is much much better – I’m very much a ‘chilled person’ now.
I look at my life before I did the Formative Learning seminar and I see the constant pressure I put myself under. Now this was pressure I put on myself. I felt the more intellectual you were that, essentially, the more successful you would be. I wasn’t a good listener prior to doing this seminar. I was a good talker, not with confidence, by the way. That’s why I think I had this constant need for learning so that I could literally verbulate everything that I thought people wanted to hear.
Now I know that all I have to do is see my end result, see it very clearly for myself, precisely what I want and then I learn it and imprint it to the extent that it happens, it absolutely happens for me and that is an amazing change for me because the techniques assist me to get the exact results that I want.
In my professional life I’m a qualified solicitor and a qualified psychotherapist. I would have done a lot of courtroom work which was an incredibly fractious environment, very stressful for everybody involved and in and out of that for a long period of time, I must say was incredibly wearing on me. What I found most harrowing about it is that it didn’t deal with peoples problems, it just gave a result. Whereas, now, I’m operating more on a mediation style employment law. It’s predominantly by using the Formative Learning techniques that my clients are getting exceptional outcomes. It’s a very different approach but it’s a very real approach, in my opinion.
When I was going through college studying psychotherapy, the entire focus was always on analysing the problem. It was the conventional psychotherapy. Now in my own practice,, I no longer use that approach. I use the Educo Formative Learning approach which I would describe as ‘solution based’ where the clients focus entirely on their desired outcome. I use now is the Educo approach – it’s not ‘let’s get into the problem and try to solve it’ – it is ‘there’s the potential solution, let’s get to that solution’ and I have to say it’s working incredibly well.
I’m now choosing to live my life and I’m living it with confidence and I’m very proud of that. I’m far more aware as a person, I believe that I’m more aware of people and how they are. I’m a better listener – I’m enjoying life very much so.
My wish, to be honest, is that the Seminar was televised. It’s content should be shared with children, with adults – it should be out there, worldwide. It’s a technique that everybody should be familiar with.
