Neuro Linguistic Programming looks at how we perceive our world internally and externally, and the patterns of behaviour we experience, whether helpful or unhelpful. NLP has been around for over 40 years and was developed by Dr Richard Bandler, who Julie was lucky enough to train with, and John Grinder. It provides a series of strategies and techniques to help us change the thoughts, behaviours and beliefs that may limit our potential in many areas of our life.
Our thoughts and emotions have a direct result on our physiology whether based on real or imagined events. We all have our own version of reality and may perceive events differently than our friends or colleagues. For instance two people could be due to travel on an aeroplane, one may be looking forward to it, picturing good things, while the other is dreading it, picturing bad things. Through the use of NLP we can help the second person to think more like the first person and whilst maintaining their inbuilt mechanism to escape danger, develop a new more positive thought process in connection to flying. For someone who has to travel a lot as part of their work the fear could have held them back and limited their potential in their career.
NLP offers the mind the option of re-programming itself to think in a more resourceful way and re-framing a past traumatic event can bring about powerful positive change. Words can have such an instant impact whether we are using them externally or internally and small adjustments can make a big difference to the way we or others feel. NLP, when used in combination with Hypnotherapy and TFT can be even more effective.
NLP can help with; anxiety & stress, grief, addictions, weight issues, fertility, pregnancy & birth, stop smoking, phobia, confidence & self esteem, sleep, sports performance, relaxation and much more.
