Der er tale om et helt nyt koncept, som Jørgen har udviklet ud fra de erfaringer, han har gjort sig i sit til tider banebrydende arbejde med klienter.

Modellen og tankerne bag præsenterede han på UK Hypnosis Convention 2017, hvor det blev taget rigtig godt imod.

Anthony Jacquin skriver i sin blog:

The stand-out lecture for me was that of Jørgen Rasmussen. He shared some of his unique techniques and latest ideas coloured by insights from years of meditation. I clapped, nodded and every now and again tried in vain to hold the two sides of my head together as one. This was a dance with the unchanging, a trip into timelessness, and one that I believe is going to rip through the industry and therapy as a whole in the years ahead.

Det allerførste kursus i Psychological Illusion Model holdes i London i begyndelsen af maj i år, og det næste stop er så Skanderborg to uger efter.

Jørgens erfaring er, at de fleste problemer opstår fordi vi som mennesker falder for nogle psykologiske illusioner. Modellen går ud på at hjælpe klienten til at se igennem de psykologiske illusioner, der er i spil – og herigennem ændre deres oplevelse.

Han bruger forskellige metoder såsom tankeeksperimenter, paradokser, hypnotiske fænomener og storytelling. Og lover, at tilgangen er enkel og let tilgængelig. Du vil kunne gå ud fra kurset og gå i gang med at bruge dine nye værktøjer med det samme.

Der vil være meget hands on undervisning og – i vanlig JR stil – krydret med konkrete eksempler fra hans egen erfaringsbase.

Udover at lære nye metoder, teknikker og værktøjer vil der også være fokus på dig som terapeut. På hvordan vi selv skal lære at se igennem vores egne illusioner og forestillinger som terapeuter og mennesker og på den måde blive meget mere nærværende, effektive og relevante i vores forandringsarbejde.


Psychological Illusion Model

Jørgen fortæller en historie for at illustrere, hvad han mener:

Imagine walking in the desert and 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 are able to stop and take a closer look….and when you do so , you realize that there is no snake….it’s just a rope.

The moment you see that the snake is a rope it’s game over, you have seen through a psychological illusion and all those “real” physiological responses disappear… not through positive thinking… or from implementing complex strategies… but from simply seeing through the psychological illusion.

Jørgen mener, at rigtig mange af vores mentale problematikker såsom angst, stress, depression, fobier, tvangstanker/-handlinger, afhængighed, traumer mm. handler om, at vi ser en slange, hvor der i virkeligheden bare er et reb.

Hans psychological illusion model er en systematisk måde at hjælpe klienter til at se igennem illusionerne bag deres unødvendige lidelse og virkelig med hele deres væsen være klar over, at “det er bare et reb”.

Jørgen Rasmussen

Jørgen Rasmussen har sin praksis i Norge, hvor han ser klienter fra hele verden. Det har han gjort i mere end 20 år. Han tilbyder også mentoring og seminarer, men hovedparten af hans arbejde er direkte 1-1 terapi.

Han er forfatter til to bøger:

Om denne skriver John Grinder blandt andet i forordet:
“You reader are in for a treat – this is the stuff of genius.”

Og til denne skriver Anthony Jacquin:
“This brilliant book is raw, honest and of real value. Illustrated with compelling dips into the authors case book and clear descriptions of his bread and butter techniques, it has the potential to transform you as a therapist or better still turn you into a self-transforming agent of change.”

Jørgen er desuden NLP certificeret træner og har haft flere års mentor-lignende forhold til John Grinder. Hvad han har lært af det, kan du se mere om her.


Anbefalinger fra deltagere på Jørgens seminarer

I was privileged to be a student attending the Provocative Hypnosis Course arranged by UMAMI and presented by Jorgen Rasmussen on 15th &16th June 2009 .Prior to the course UMAMI set up a website accessed by the students to network and ask questions as they arose, the website was supported by Wayne and John, who managed it and answered our questions promptly and generated discussions within the group, and continue to do so. When I read the excerpt from Jorgen’s book posted on the site, it struck fear to my core, as his interventions appeared so radical, it was far out my comfort zone, and I was apprehensive to what I would be exposed to, and felt quite nervous on that first morning, and I discovered on talking to fellow students I was not alone in that state. However, as the two days unfolded my fears were alleviated, as Jorgen explained his reasons for his radical approach and demonstrated his wizardry. Even though English is not his first language, his narrative was totally spell binding and I hung on his every word, Pure GENIEUS! I cannot fault the two days, only to say it wasn’t long enough, the venue, organisation, the course literature and the amazing support given by Wayne and John ,who are UMAMI, was and still continues to be outstanding. Thank you very much, I look forward to attending my next course with UMAMI.

Look at Google and you’ll see that Hypnosis and NLP courses are now a dime a dozen. From my personal experience and the experiences of my students and clients, what gets taught on one course is usually little different to the next. I’ve recently found one big exception to this statement and it’s called, ‘Provocative Hypnosis’; the most exciting, effective and boundary pushing training that I have ever taken part in. More importantly to me, the teacher, ‘Jorgen Rasmussen’, is a man who has earned the right to call himself a master of his trade, not by reading books and attending other peoples seminars (though he clearly has read and attended more than most), but by working with a vast range of clients, many presenting him with a range of symptoms and challenges that most change agents would run a mile from! Since attending PH, I’ve used Jorgen’s unique patterns and methods with a number of clients. The results have each time shown an immediate and obvious shift in state. More importantly, (a month or so later) my clients continue to benefit form more choices in a number of previously limiting contexts. I know personally that John Grinder rates Jorgen as one of the finest change agents in the world. Based on my four days with him, I have to wonder who on earth the competition could be?

Provocative hypnosis – if you come to this training expecting to worship at the altar of Bandler, Grinder, McKenna, James or Rasmussen you are in the wrong place! Guru’s are neither recognised nor welcomed and the religious fanaticism which pervades much of the world of NLP and hypnosis is debunked very early on. Handy hint number one…leave your guru and altar at home! The simplicity and directness of Jorgen’s approach is astonishing, learning to easily lead even the most sceptical into deep hypnosis with the intention of creating lasting change within minute is breathtaking. Handy hint number two KISS – keep it simple stupid! Jorgen’s approach is straightforward – dirt level honesty, being wholly present in the encounter, a willingness to fully commit to do whatever it takes to get the outcome with integrity, passion respect and heart. He walks the talk and as a result both demands and draws that same commitment from participants so back seat observers can easily become fully engaged. Handy hint number three No bullshitting! The provocation is full on…sometimes surprising, occasionally shocking, powerful, intense and evoking strong emotions which are so often the precursor to deep and lasting change. However, be under no illusions this is no dark foreboding experience – the training is playfully serious and seriously playful with laughter and fun playing a major part in the process. Handy hint number four keep a packet of Kleenex handy and make sure you don’t have a full bladder! The balance of case histories, exercises, planned demonstrations and those which spontaneously arose, together with open question and answer sessions ensure boredom is not an option with the group constantly captivated, provoked entranced challenged and energised. The open supportive learning environment proved ideal for safe experimentation and mistake making which proved a great recipe for shared learning. This training is intensely practical and grounded to be used immediately and not left on the shelf or in the toolbox. Handy hint number five dive right in and give it your best shot! Although Jorgen may have what he describes as his “Favourite format” he is no one trick pony and I have rarely heard someone adopt such a flexible and eclectic approach with no respect for labels boundaries dogma or tradition. NLP, hypnosis, developmental psychology, mindfulness and so much more mixed shaken and stirred to produce a heady cocktail which gets to the parts others may not reach! Handy hint number six be willing to become less certain of your certainties and realise the more you know the more you don’t know! For my part, I met some great people, laughed a lot, cried a bit, was offended, confused, intrigued, deeply moved and excited, discovered some personal limitations, learned so much and have been provoked to find new choices both working with clients and also in my own life journey with some new twists and turns emerging which I will fully explore. So was it worth the investment of time money and energy? Hell yes!

Last week I attended a 4 day intensive training with Jorgen Rasmussen, author of the book ‘Provocative Hypnosis’ organised by Wayne marsh (UmamiUK) in Doncaster. Jorgen’s book openly details his direct and often controversial approach to change-work with clients. After reading it, I admit that I was mildly apprehensive before attending the training. I would not have been surprised if Jorgen had turned out to be nothing more than an impatient bully. I found this could not be more wrong. What I experienced was beyond my expectations. I have spent 20 years working in education with children, teenagers, families and teachers, and I now run my own as an NLP Trainer. In all this time, these were 4 days of the best and most productive days of my career. I found the course to be remarkably insightful. Jorgen had a great depth of knowledge and understanding as to how best to help clients. Rather than an impatient bully, I experienced Jorgen to be a compassionate person, who – in the name of achieving results for a client – is willing to put aside his own ego, and be very effective at cutting through other people’s stories and B.S. Jorgen’s commitment to helping others, for me, was typified when just prior to the start of the course all European airports were closed (volcanic ash from Iceland was playing havoc with atmosphere). Instead of postponing and rescheduling the course, which would have been understandable, Jorgen drove from Norway, through Europe to Doncaster in the UK. This would not be an easy journey. On personal and professional levels, I gained tremendously from the 4 days training. Jorgen’s willingness to share his knowledge and experiences reaffirmed many approaches of my own and critically, gave me many useful new ones for working with clients ….. and a new perspective on how to conduct my own self! I was impressed by Jorgen’s congruence with his own approach and his “dirt level honesty” with the group. This, I considered to be a Model of Excellence and one worth patterning. The discomfort I experienced as I looked at aspects of my own self was a necessary and worthy revelation. It was, and is, being utilised for the better. Since first reading ‘Provocative Hypnosis’ and attending the training, I have appraised my own approaches and changed many things. My ‘back-pocket’ (as John Grinder calls it!) now has many more tools. Most importantly for me, by modelling Jorgen’s approach, it has enabled me to knit the tools together into a much more fluid, flexible and effective approach. My success levels with clients have improved, the time taken to achieve these has diminished and I now have a greater sense of purpose and clarity in my work than I did previously. I highly recommend Jorgen’s book ‘Provocative Hypnosis’. It is a fascinating read which will take you from laughing to squirming. It widen your eyes in wonder at a real balls-out approach to change-work with clients. It will also make you stop. It will then force your hand to reconsider many things. More than his book if you get the chance to meet the man, or attend a training he is delivering …..DO IT! You will be blown away and inspired. I was, I am and I look forward to continually being.

My Overall experience is that this course has shifted so many of my own assumptions, personally and those that relate to my coaching (now training!). I have come to realise that I deserve to enjoy my work to the maximum, and for a client to get the most out of what I do, they need to commit to it, rather than me just commiting to them. The element of people pleaser in me has taken a major blow – thankfully. It has given me the the kind of motivation to go out and play with this sutff, so that if someone offered me some arm bands to walk gently into the water, I would throw them down, run towards the deep end and ‘just jump right in’. That is gold. Jorgen successfully gave me two gifts – one of information and content (ooh, did I just use that word?!), and the other is that this is useless on its own, it is up to me to do it/use it and abuse it. Many other courses I have been on give good information, but this gives you an active hanger to hang it on. And I was so pissed off! Because this was such a wild and impactful course, that I knew I would have to rewrite my website and coaching material. But that my work would move to new levels, and more specifically, my enjoyment of this kind of work would also increase. Jorgen’s experience as a forward thinking, experimental trainer, was conveyed in a way that I felt I was getting access to secrets that few people knew. The clients that I used to dread walking through my office door, I now look forward to, as an opportunity to play with this stuff. Jorgen invites you to throw off your arm bands and jump right in! This course gives you the skills to float.

I have just completely an amazing 4 day course with Joergen Rasmussen through Unami UK. Joergen was pretty much faultless in his delivery of a fantastic learning experience. There was a great balance between him actually teaching his techniques and us learning through having the experience of being hypnotised and working on our own issues. I feel like my whole way of doing business and living life has been thoroughly challenged and I am in the process of rediscovering and redesigning my beliefs and assumptions. Anyone lucky enough to work with Joergen is in for a rare treat. As well as being super talented, he is seriously funny and likable. I thoroughly (and unreservedly) recommend him to anyone interested in improving their life or their business.
