Neuro Linguistic Programming

What is Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP)

NLP is a modern development in the field of change-work. It has been described in Psychology Today Magazine as “ The most powerful vehicle for change in existence.”

In common with other therapeutic and change-work, NLP is applied holistically: taking into consideration the whole person, and also their complete life circumstances, in an appropriate way. It can be used, within this overall context, to successfully treat a single issue (for example: a phobia can usually be eliminated in a single session and transformed into a natural positive response)

Who can benefit from NLP?

Everyone can obtain benefit from NLP.It is particularly appropriate, however, for people who:

  • do not want a body-based or ‘hands-on' therapy.
  • do not want to re-experience the details of painful events.
  • want an approach which works quickly.
  • want to address self-worth, relationship or communication issues.
  • want a flexible approach which can deal with a single issue, or with a whole –life situation.

NLP is very effective in situations where the original cause of a problem is not known, as well as when there is an obvious cause.

How does it work?

When we are aware that we have a problem in some area of life (even an illness or injury), and we wish that it could be different, we need to want to change it, know how to change it, and have the opportunities to change it.

INLPTA Practitioners of NLP are trained to assist you appropriately in each of these areas.

What to expect at your consultation

First of all, I will need some brief indication of what the problem is. Then we can discuss how you would like things to be different. With this information it is possible to begin the change process.

I will need to know only very few personal details about your experiences, it is generally sufficient that you are able to recall events to mind, you will not need to describe them to me.

To make the changes, we will utilise the power of your memory and your imagination. The change process will be unique to you, and of course will be completely confidential. You will be actively involved in the work, and may need to move around the room to create different kinds of mental experiences in different locations.

Although the work can address very serious and painful issues, it is important for you to know that I will not place you in a situation where you re-experience traumatic events or painful feelings.

An essential part of the change work is to ensure that : The change is in harmony with you, as a whole person, with the ‘you' that you would like to become, and with the whole of your life, and your relationships with the other people in your life. This ensures that the positive effects will be sustained and that the changes will be permanent.

The number of sessions that we need will be discussed. As a general rule, between three and five sessions will resolve many situations (although phobias will normally take just one session to resolve, and weight loss will take six or seven sessions).

It is worth noting that changes in one area of life will often have positive effects in other areas as well, this is very true of NLP change-work.

Between consultations, and after the final session.

If it is appropriate, a telephone call can be arranged to ensure that the changes are proceeding smoothly. You would also be welcome to telephone me if questions arose for you between consultations, or after your final session.

NLP can be effective in facilitating change in any area of life.

Recovery from illness and injury, releasing trauma and stress, learning new skills, changing habits, developing new perspectives and ways of thinking, goal-setting and creating your future, finding your ‘true self', and realising your potential.

All of these situations, and more, can be worked on with NLP.
