Lidija M Rosati

I am Lidija M Rosati, author of Amazon #1 bestseller – Gaining While Losing – The Gentle Art Of Transformation and a co-creator of Momentum Method.

I am also an International (ITA) NLP trainer – Classic and New Code NLP, personally trained by dr. John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St. Clair and Michael Carroll. In addition to delivering NLP trainings in Europe, I am also a Master Coach, motivational speaker, Peak Performance strategist and Hypnotherapist. My natural flair and passion for helping others have led me to pursue a career in the field of Neurostrategies and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). After 12 years in the international banking environment, I decided to leave and follow heart in the direction of helping committed individuals and organizations reach their full potential.

After extensive studies and research in the field of NLP and personal development in general, especially how our language influences our behaviour and how it affects our Unconscious thought processes, I have developed effective strategies that have helped me understand human behavior better, uncover the reasons behind our actions and create a lasting change.

Together with Thomas Bjorge, I have created Momentum Coaching Method, a cutting edge set of tools for coaches to help their clients consistently reach the results they want in their lives.

In my pursuit of mastery and excellence, I studied with the best coaches in the field of Neurostrategies, NLP, Leadership, Coaching, Energetic NLP and Personal development.

I studied Eastern disciplines, including meditation at the Chopra centre in Carlsbad, California and Zen Buddhist meditation at Shunkoin Temple in Kyoto, Japan, Vipassana in Southern California, Reiki, and Mindfulness in London, UK. These practices have given me experiential background which I successfully combine and integrate in my NLP trainings, Corporate coaching and Leadership trainings. Our mind can assimilate and create long lasting changes through, among other disciplines, breathing, meditation and stillness.

Having completed Tony Robbins’s Mastery University, I make it a priority to every year serve and am part of Tony’s UPW crew of volunteers, witnessing amazing changes in participants and serving beyond myself. Doing this, I consistently reinforce a belief that the secret to living is giving. Spending time in the presence of a new thought leader and #1 motivational coach in the world, raises my game and helps me add that extra something to my trainings and seminars!

In 2014, I was nominated and shortlisted for the Trainer of the Year award, by the Association of Professional Coaches and Trainers (APCTC).

I am a highly respected and sought after specialist in the following techniques:

  • NLP Trainer – Classic and New Code
  • Reiki Master
  • Master Neurostrategist
  • Hypnotherapist
  • TimeLine™
  • Master Coach
  • Peak Performance Strategist

My unique and unconventional methods have helped people to better understand themselves and increase their performance and the performance of their teams.

Everyone has the ability to fulfill their dreams  and become outstanding as long as they practice the art of seizing the momentum.

I am a keen runner and a tennis player, and I enjoy playing golf, horseback riding and yoga. In my spare time I write Haiku poetry and have recently published my first book of Haiku poetry – “88 Pictures from Life”. A number of poems have been selected for and published in the Anthology of Haiku Poetry.

Watch this space for our (Thomas Bjorge´s and mine) upcoming book on personal development that will give you the edge.

I currently deliver trainings in the UK, Serbia, Belgium and Scandinavia, and from Summer and Autumn, 2016 in Florida and Portugal respectively.

Thomas Björge

My name is Thomas Björge and I am a Classic and New Code NLP trainer.

I became interested in NLP in the eighties and went to California to become a practitioner at a course with Dr. John Grinder (one of the two major co-founders of the field). This course laid the foundation for a lifelong interest in NLP.

At the time I had studied psychology at the University of Stockholm, however I found NLP far superior in the sense that it provided its students with practical useful tools and processes. I also have a background in philosophy and was delighted to find a psychology which had an explicit understanding of epistemology – how we create our experience and understanding of the world.

I went back to California the following year to become a master practitioner at one of Dr. John Grinder’s trainings, and also to partake in a short course on how to teach NLP. The year after that I again visited California, this time to be certified as a master practitioner by Richard Bandler (The other major co-founder of NLP), and also to partake in a short course module with him about how to teach NLP to others.

To me it was important to have this background and insight into the NLP and the training methods of the two major co-founders of NLP, simply because it placed me in a position where I could make informed choices about my further studies in NLP.

Later on Dr. John Grinder started giving trainings in the UK and I started visiting London to continue the development of my understanding of the field. And eventually I became a certified trainer of NLP by Dr. John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll. Since then I also went on to assist during trainers trainings and hence to take part in the evaluation process of who was to become a trainer and who wasn’t.

I am also the creator of the NLP new code game popularly known as “the arrows game”. I deliver NLP courses in Sweden as well as teaching advanced NLP patterning short courses. When I teach people NLP I much prefer not to talk about all the incredible things you can accomplish with NLP until after you have experienced them and performed them yourself – then, and only then, it is valuable to have a chat about it and how they may be useful in your life.

I am an effective trainer of NLP. I know this to be the case not only because people who have taken part in my trainings provide me with reports of their successes when applying the techniques to transform personal and professional situations, but also because I have personally witnessed how well they are able to use NLP. It is not so much that I teach or train my students, as it is that they discover and learn (my job is of course to provide the context in which they learn). The secret to being a good NLP trainer is simply this; to have amazing students. I am forever curious and interested in deepening my understanding of the human mind, how we experience the world we live in, and the processes of change, as well as developing my ways of assisting others in acquiring and developing these skills.

So I also have a number of other interests and experiences which have deepened my understanding of NLP. I have been practicing Tai Chi for 12 years and this has enhanced my understanding of how humans learn and how the mind-body system interacts. I am also a longtime student of the Feldenkrais method. I have worked as a programmer and studied the cybernetic thinking of Gregory Bateson, the mentor of Grinder and Bandler.

In addition, he specialized in nuclear medicine, passed the psychiatry specialist exam in 1993, and from 1995-97 he went through a two-year analytic psychotherapy training. In 1998, he founded and registered an association called the “Society for Liaison Psychiatry” and has been its long-time president.

The area of focus of his psychiatric and psychosomatic activity is primarily liaison psychiatry within which he deals most closely with psychonephrology. He actively participated in education, organization and development of the psychonephrological services in Serbia, by organizing specialized symposia and by holding lectures at dialysis schools and nephrology congresses.

As a member of the World Association for Psychonephrology, he presented at international psychonephrology meetings in New York in 1996, and Yokohama in 2000, where he was awarded for extraordinary scientific contribution for his paper “The manipulation by psychological defense mechanisms as an important therapeutic procedure for adequate adaptation on hemodialysis treatment”. His monograph “Psychonephrology: Past, Present and Future” was published in Japan in 2001, with a foreword by the founder of Japan’s psychonephrology, professor Haruki. Twenty eight of his papers on Liaison psychiatry were published in extenso in national and international journals.

Since 2007, Prof. Slobodan Ilic has been expanding his liaison psychiatry interests to cardiology, oncology, thereology and rheumatology and developing practical consultative, advisory and psychotherapeutic activity along with his scientific work.

He mainly focuses on mental state of patients with chronic irreversible disease, and people with permanent disabilities. In line with the modernization of psychotherapeutic perspectives and following new trends of applied psychology, he is engaged in learning about neurolinguistic strategies and their application in medical practice. In this context, the Society for Liaison Psychiatry has established close cooperation with the founder of the NLP Holistic Center and the Project Momentum Strategies, Lidija Markovic Rosati- the authentic originator and documented and valid promoter of NLP in Serbia.

As a result of successful cooperation, the Society for Liaison Psychiatry and NLP Holistic center, under the direction of Prof. Slobodan Ilic, organized the first thematic seminar entitled “Application of neurolinguistic strategies in the treatment of chronic somatic diseases” within the framework of continual medical education programs of the Faculty of Medicine. This seminar was, in addition to psychiatrists, attended by somatic doctors and doctors of various specialties and it also resulted in publication of Collection of peer-reviewed papers, under the editorship of Prof. Ilic.
