Milton Erickson (1901 – 1980) an American psychiatrist and psychologist was the first to understand a seemingly simple yet profound tool- tapping into the power of the ‘unconscious mind’. He believed that the unconscious mind was almost like a reservoir of resources that are collected voluntarily or involuntarily throughout a person’s life. He discovered a simple but profound way of tapping into the power of the unconscious mind. Erickson figured out exactly where each of us needed to look for the answers to our life’s myriad problems and the answer is ‘inside’.
He discovered a simple but profound way of practical help, tapping into the power of the unconscious mind, in creatively finding life solutions that were right for them. You could put it this way: everything you need is within you right now. By harnessing your inner resources, you can find practical solutions that would radically improve your lives right here, right now.
Erikson developed an original set of strategies that made him the most proficient practitioner of the 20th century and perhaps of all time, helping almost every patient or client achieve clarity in their outlook towards life.
He became famous for being able to help almost any patient or client.
He is noted for influencing strategic family therapy, family systems therapy, and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). Erickson is noted for his approach to the unconscious mind as creative, client-centered, and solution-generating.
The unconscious mind is made up of all your learnings over a lifetime, many of which you have forgotten, but which serve you in your automatic functioning.
Before Erickson, psychologists had thought about the possibility of human change from a medical point of view. If you wanted to change your life, the first thing a psychologist would do was diagnose a "mental health issue" and make you "patient" in a long process of recovery. So if you were a healthy person, just looking to improve some area of your life, there would be no way to get professional help without first becoming a "patient".
For more than a decade, people simply marveled at Erickson's abilities till Jay Haley came along and "cracked the code". He wrote the first book that analyzed Erickson's method in detail. Soon scholars and students from around the world flocked to Erickson's side, including Richard Bandler and John Grinder, who are known as the primary originators of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
Erickson’s idea of looking within oneself rather than fishing for help from outside, not only redefined medical science and psychology, but also our very perception of the power of the human mind. Every resource we need to heal ourselves is always within our grasp – all we have to do is reach out for it. The Core Transformation Process aims at doing this for you – introducing you to the healing power present within you. That’s what our goal is-integrating conscious & unconscious to wholeness.
Development of the groundbreaking Core Transformation® Process.
Dr. Connirae Andreas, an internationally known trainer, mentor, and teacher had this great opportunity to learn directly from Milton Erickson in 1979. Dr. Connirae Andreas was strongly inspired by Milton Erickson's work and is best known for her development of the groundbreaking Core Transformation® process, a method of gentle and profound transformation.
The CT process itself came together in complete form in the summer of 1989, when I gave myself the challenge of working with people who had “tried everything” on their biggest issue, and nothing had worked.
I set myself the task of going for the outcome in any way, except that I wouldn’t use any method I knew how to do. I wanted to find something that would go deeper and do more than the methods currently in NLP.
I wanted to find something that got the level of change that Milton Erickson had gotten with me, and that would last through time.
I wanted to find something that felt deeply healing and transformative.

Core Transformation® with Nell Puetter
Being a certified Core Transformation® Coach and the Founder of CORE CALMFIDENCE I have helped hundreds of mission-driven people to reveal their Clarity, Congruence & Calmness present within them. My personal transformative journey was very challenging as I had to deal with an array of many issues from the grief of losing a life partner to escaping from self into work addiction.
For more than a decade I was seeking a way out of my struggles through Cognitive Therapy, applying MBSR, ETF, Hypnosis, NLP, and many other self-help tools... However, I found permanent relief after I discovered the Core Transformation method which was developed by Dr. Connirae and Tamara Andreas. I wish I had known about it even before. Through Core Transformation, I was able to free up myself and found my strength, clarity, and congruence from within.
Reflecting back today, I must say this was the greatest boost to my personal growth. I learned how to reactivate the power of the unconscious and integrate it with the conscious, discovering my true Core during this profoundly transformative journey. I am fortunate to have learned directly from Connirae, Tamara, and Mark Andreas the power of Core Transformation® and I am thrilled to offer Core Transformation® coaching sessions in English, German, and Russian languages worldwide.
My personal deep transformational experience of CT made me able to work with people seeking a way out of unresolved inner conflicts, dilemmas, self-sabotage, internal pressure to perform and stress, procrastination, distraction, severe self-criticism, self-doubts, low self-esteem, addiction to work, etc. It is incredibly fulfilling to witness my clients getting transformative results that are even beyond what they originally wanted. My mission is to empower high performers, through inner transformative work and therapeutic coaching, helping them shift unwanted feelings, behavior, or thoughts. As a result, they create an impact in the world, both on a professional and personal level.
I look forward to getting a chance to know your story and exploring how to help you propel forward by making you filled with inner clarity, congruence, and calmness.
