About Us

Connirae Andreas:

Connirae_AndreasConnirae Andreas, PhD, has been teaching, developing, and writing in the field of NLP since the late 70’s. She is perhaps most well-known for her groundbreaking work developing the Core Transformation Process.  Connirae works with a growing network of Core Transformation Trainers internationally.  Visit our Core Transformation Training page to learn more about this profound NLP technique, which very simply and easily becomes a doorway to a felt experience many describe as our spiritual core.  This inner core offers the deep healing that very naturally resolves many of life’s problems and challenges.  Connirae is currently finishing a book on a new process, Coming to Wholeness. It works in the same direction as Core Transformation, yet the path is unique. The Wholeness Process is her modeling of a specific spiritual teaching, making it a doable method for anyone. As with Core Transformation it leads to a wellbeing within that makes life easier and more joyful. Other developments from Connirae include Aligning Perceptual Positions, and her work in Advanced Language Patterns.

Connirae offers private sessions in Boulder, Colorado, as well as via Skype.

Steve Andreas:

Steve-AndreasSteve Andreas, with his wife and partner Connirae, has been learning, teaching, and developing patterns in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) since 1977. Steve and Connirae are the co-editors and/or authors of many NLP books (both classics from the early days of the field, and new innovations) and over fifty NLP articles. They have also produced over fifty videotaped and audiotaped demonstrations of NLP patterns for personal change.

Steve’s new two-volume book, Six Blind Elephants; understanding ourselves and others, (2006) presents a comprehensive “unified field theory”of thinking and personal change. It shows how all personal change can be understood using three simple variables, and how to use these understandings to track someone’s thinking and adjust it so that it is more satisfying.

Steve has also written a new book entitled Transforming Negative Self Talk available through Norton or Amazon.com. There is also a second volume entitled Help with Negative Self Talk, vol 2 available in eBook form from Real People Press. The two books include many unique and powerful new patterns for quickly transforming troublesome internal voices.

And finally, Steve has recently created some NLP client session videos. These videos highlight the kinds of rapid results possible with NLP techniques, with clients with little to no NLP background. Videos are available as DVD or download on the Real People Press website.
