Who Is This Guy?

Hello, my name is Wayne Nicholson. A child of the sixties and seventies, I completed college in education and psychology, and briefly taught High School. I also participated in the human potential movement, studied psychology, metaphysics, and various healing modalities, which led to counseling people both in and out of the criminal justice system for ten years. I have presented on these topics to groups of all sizes.

For 20 years, I was a director of college programs in New York State for adult students with developmental disabilities. Our dedicated staff of habilitation professionals used protocols that included transactional analysis, linguistics, transformational grammar, and neuro-linguistic programming. In 1999, I was fortunate to discover the pioneering work of David John Oates in Reverse Speech and pursued it as a hobby until completing formal training.

Always fascinated with the link between language, perception, and reality, I have found that the way we use language directly affects the way we perceive reality, which in turn affects the way the world responds to us. The imagery found in language fashions the unconscious habits that we use to make sense of the world. Reverse Speech is a tool that opens the door to the unconscious mind, revealing the language of dream and metaphor, as well as the mundane desires and prejudices that power our lives.

This website is intended to demonstrate how an understanding of your language in reverse can lead to effective living and happiness. My professional goal in Reverse Speech is to provide each client with a model that allows them to listen to the "still small voice" within, and to craft a life that is congruent in every way with their innermost dreams and aspirations.

I hope you will take the time to explore this site and consider the possibilities it suggests.
