The world is in constant change and every day the gap is growing between cultures or ages of people in the World. How can we work together for the same goal? How can we overcome our diversity in thinking, religions, etc?

Yes, we can learn how to clear all our beliefs that are in the foundation of our unconscious mind from our childhood. We are going to learn to accept others the way they are. We cannot change origins from people, we cannot put people on the sidelines only because they are elderly or disabled. We can transform and adapt our culture or our age including to others to be able to work, to live our lives in a total realization of our abilities.

The success in this challenge is accepting diversity, starting ourselves growing our inner beauty within with gratitude, so we can learn and create peace with others around us and in our entire planet.

I will be delivering a talk showing ways to be able to reach Peace and Agreement. I will show how using several Alternative Therapy Medicine, NLP and Human Resource knowledge, can help you reach that peace and balance to be able to have a “Better World” to live.

We have a choice over what we have for dinner, we can choose what we’re going to wear everyday, most of us can even choose what careers we are going to have, but most of us fail to realise we have a choice over how we feel. In this talk you will learn the secrets of choice.It all comes down to the simple premise of awareness.

Learn the secrets of how to incorporate enjoyment, passion and motivation most of us crave in our day to day lives. As a result of modern living we are finding it more and more difficult to switch of the internal chatter and just really be.

In an increasingly alien and over stimulating world, the human race is more worn out and anxious then ever before. In this talk Nikki guides you through how to maintain overall well being in a world that encourages anything but. Using her studies in psychology, hypnotherapy and neuroscience she takes a combined approach to the treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders and stress and pain management. With its benefits to cognitive functioning and overall well being she developed it into a product for children for mass market; Max Mindpower. In this talk she unpacks the science behind the bear and gives you an insight into the key techniques that make this such a special and effective product.

Nikki’s passion in psychology stems from personal experience. In her teens Nikki was an equestrian professional and travelled, with her horses for competitions, throughout Europe. One night Nikki was involved in a hit and run with a drunk driver and sustained significant and life changing injuries to her neck and head. She was given little to no chance of full recovery, however, thanks to her positive attitude and dedication to attaining the life she once had again, she recovered to the amazement of her medical team.

Once recovered Nikki realized the benefit of what she has learnt and through her experience and that she can make an impact to the lives of many.

Tea Guttsmann, Lawyer and NLP Coach, will introduce you to 5 Simple Steps that will prepare you for your child custody court case.

In order to obtain the best possible outcome, you have to be well prepared for your custody hearing. When you understand precisely the why behind what you’re doing—going to court to obtain custody of your child or children–you will be able to get the best possible result for your family.

The 5 Simple Steps presented during this workshop will help you understand why you are going to court in the first place, and then prepare you for process of the court case and life after the custody case.

If you’re recently divorced and have children, or if you’ve been divorced for a while and have not been able to agree with your ex-partner about issues involving your child or children, the court process could be a beneficial opportunity.

That’s right: your custody case can be an opportunity that benefits your entire family, and these 5 Simple Steps will show you how! In the courtroom, will be required to put aside your personal conflict with your former partner in order view the situation from your child’s perspective. That means that the judge, lawyers, jury members and you—in your role of a parent—must examine what is best for your child, and this may be different from what you think is fair between your and your ex-partner.

Knowing these things—why you have entered into a custody case and what is best for your child—before you enter the courtroom, and understanding what you need to do done in court will provide you with the best possibilities for a positive outcome that benefits the entire family.

The last of the 5 Simple Steps involves a discussion about the period after the custody case, and how you all get along. There may be a new family structure with additional children and a new partner. There may be deep feelings of emptiness and separation once the case is no longer a part of your daily life. Suddenly, when all the legal proceedings are over, you have a whole new life to live with much more open space, physically, mentally and emotionally. How do you move from there to here, past to present… and most importantly, how do you move forward?!

Join Tea for an insightful workshop that offers you 5 Simple Steps to make your way through your child custody case and begin your new life with ease and confidence.
