Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Facilitate the elimination of obstacles to your goals
NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming, has been described as a vehicle to easily eliminate the obstacles to your goals. It’s also a powerful tool to “unlock” secrets to how your brain works. For example, most of us aren’t aware that we recall memories and events either by storing them as pictures or videos (ie we learn visually), recalling the actual conversations we had (we learn via audio), or by touching things reminiscent of a past event (we learn kinesthetically).
Some of us learn using 2 systems simultaneously. In other words, we each have our own customized “map” of how we store knowledge and information about our world. Understanding another person’s “representational system” enables you to use language familiar to their subconscious, thus creating greater trust and respect.
Whether it’s speaking with your child, your partner or your next boss, your ability to build rapport with that person escalates enormously. Imagine how much more easily children could learn if their teachers spoke to them using the internal system they were most familiar with!
NLP enhances your ability to problem solve, and change deeply rooted behaviors
Neuro Linguistic Programming not only enhances your awareness of how you think, it heightens your sensitivity around behaviors you engage which no longer serve you. Occasionally, everyone gets stuck in unproductive, emotional behavior patterns resulting in chaos. These breakdowns are painful for everyone involved.
Yet, it may take months, even years before you gain enough clarity to take responsibility, and change. Using specific processes, NLP provides you with an objective perspective on yourself so you can viscerally know how you were influenced as a child, and how you affected others as a result.
Through NLP, learn to eliminate fears so you can connect with your core life purpose
Through learning new ways to change our new behavior more gracefully, we’re able to eliminate fears, build self-confidence and move forward in activating our dreams more quickly. Neuro Linguistic Programming is also extremely effective at enabling clients to more clearly connect with what they love to do in life, and their core sense of life purpose.
Areas where clients have reaped benefit through Neuro Linguistic Programming
NLP has been strongly influenced by the work of Dr. Milton Erickson, who made enormous contributions to modern hypnotherapy in the last century. As a Certified NLP Practitioner, I often incorporate NLP into my hypnosis sessions to assist clients. Some areas which have been addressed using NLP include the following:
- Clarification and enhanced focus on reaching personal and/or financial goals
- Enhancing core self confidence
- Enhancing creativity and the ability to create dreams for one’s future
- Identification of root emotional cause to conditions such as high blood pressure, fibromyalgia and chronic pain
- Reducing chronic stress and panic attacks
- Reducing extreme anxiety (such as stage fright and phobic responses such as fear of spiders, claustrophobia, social anxiety etc.).
