Co founder of NLP Huset (the NLP House) in Copenhagen in 1990 and NLP Huset in Oslo in 2000 Jack Makani recently developed Hug and Heal campaign to provide psychological first aid service to the earthquake survivors in Nepal and people around the world.
The philosophy of Jack has always been that; even though NLP is useful, it can by no means stand alone in psychotherapy. He therefore very early began to integrate the works of other fields into his trainings and especially in the therapeutic practice. However, as he found that NLP attracts a lot of people that might not have been attracted to other forms of courses in personal development, he continued to make NLP training, while all the time broadening the view of what NLP is. Even though he thus attracted a lot of business people and even named some of the trainings “NLP Business Practitioner”, the main focus has always been on deep personal development, and on integrating new ways of thinking. During the last 24 years he has trained thousands of people in NLP and Self Coaching, and hundreds of them have been trained in the Akasha System. Jack has written a couple of books in the Danish language and the English "Self coaching the 7 steps to your Self" which goes with videos and Audios (See the shop)
