NEURO LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING “NLP”
NLP helps you understand how you think, how you feel and how you make sense of everyday life in the world around you.
NEURO – relates to the process within your mind.
LINGUISTIC – is all about how you communicate, the verbal language and your body language and how you use it.
PROGRAMMING - are the learned behaviours you repeat some of these behaviours even though you do not always get you the results you want or expect.
Exploring how and why you communicate the way you currently do can lead to some real light bulb moments. As you become more aware of your language patterns and begin to look at things differently, overcoming negative and habitual thinking patterns and using the right language you will soon experience breakthroughs in all areas of your life.
The Benefits of Thinking Differently with NLP
NLP is not simply making affirmations, but a way of allowing your brain to think differently. Many people don’t realise how we make sense of the world, not only externally as we see, hear and feel, but also internally as we make pictures, have thoughts and ‘feel the feelings’.
Who hasn’t said to themselves internally that something may go wrong with what you are doing or going to do, and then experienced an unpleasant feeling in the stomach, chest or head?
Sometimes the language we use with ourselves perpetuates the negative behaviours. Our sessions uncover the language patterns you are using and help you to become aware of what you do and how you do it. You can then begin to re-learn how to use even more positive language with yourself, and do it more easily.
NLP takes all the suggestions of how you want your life to be, and helps you to create more beneficial ways of being, which then in turn help you to become even more resourceful. The techniques that change the way we think, feel and behave.
How Hypnotherapy and NLP Work Together
When using only hypnosis with clients, the client is not getting the full benefit that NLP can bring.
Hypnosis in itself is an incredibly relaxing feeling, and the suggestions that are used during hypnosis can make huge differences in your behaviours. NLP can add enormous benefits to a change in behaviour, much more quickly than by using hypnosis alone.
Being an NLP practitioner allows the therapist to use as many tools as they can to bring about faster change, which continue to happen long after you have finished your sessions.
