What is Change Work?
Change work is any successful form or process, of personal evolution and movement towards life nourishing goals. If therapeutic interventions are successful, then that is change work. Change work involves neurological change which results in positive emotional and behavioural experiences.
Breaking habits, letting go of negative thoughts, increasing self care, feeling good more often than not, are all results of successful change work.
How is change work different from talking therapies or other ‘alphabet’ therapies’?
Change work is different in three ways, the first is that you do not have to disclose your ‘pain story’, your secrets or your experiences, that are potentially at the root of things. Change work is more often than not, content free.
The second way change work is different, is that the number of sessions required to invoke powerful shifts in your life, are significantly less than 6.
The third difference are the techniques we use. They are precise, accurate, brief and highly effective.
Who do you work with?
We work with anyone who wants to explore a reduction in their own suffering, anyone who makes other people suffer and they want to stop, anyone who wants to end a habit, an annoying behaviour that keeps cropping up, change their own stuck-ness in life, who wants to overcome obstacles or explore weird and wonderful ways to be and live.
Sometimes, we need to work alongside counselling agencies, or your GP and mental health professional, to ensure high quality health and safety. If this is the case, we will ask for a letter from them, confirming you are safe to embark upon our processes.
What if I do not want to work with a nominated practitioner, but still want to use the revolutionary services?
We have connections with fellow practitioners and change workers, both locally and nationally. Just let us know when you get in touch with us and we will ensure your wishes are granted. You have the right to choose who you work with and alongside.

Is change work, hard work?
All humans have their own inner, personal ecology. Like your fingerprint or DNA, you also have your own directions of growth. At Higher Effect you are harmonised with your three main intelligences, your mind, your heart and your gut instincts. In this way, change work is not hard work.
We are here to aid in your alignment and your unique individuality and identity. Change work is the empowerment of your own personal leadership, truth, purpose, and path, with confidence, integrity and humility. Change work can be effortless, painful, uncomfortable, or joyous.
Often, change work happens in the blink of an eye.

You talk a lot about metaphor, what is the big deal?
There is a realm beyond thought, it offers us a universal language, vantage point and a perfect position, with which to enable positive change. Your metaphors, like your fingerprints are unique to you and in a true metaphorical reality, you can witness and seek much wisdom, insight, and power. The 4th dimension of space can be witnessed outside of your judgement and thought.
