Neuro Linguistic Programming – Professional Help is available in Hertfordshire, Hoddesdon, St Albans, and even Online
When you want to find new ways of thinking, dealing with your emotions, and combating thinks such as stress and anxiety, you’ll often be referred to a type of treatment known as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Before embarking on sessions, it’s important to know what it entails, and what it can help you to achieve.
What is NLP?
NLP focuses on exploring the relationships between 3 core parts of your life; namely what you think, how you communicate, and patterns of behaviour driven by your experiences, such as emotions. The goal is to break down seemingly insurmountable issues that leave you feeling overwhelmed, into far smaller and more manageable parts of your life. By turning each of them into a well-defined process that you can work through with the right tools, you can begin to move closer to your goals.
You can think of NLP as a process that allows you to develop a personal set of adaptable and highly flexible tools for life. By building up a set of coping mechanisms for a broad range of eventualities, you can then begin to adapt them to new issues as they arise. Ultimately this will allow you to live the free and happy life that you have always wanted.
How Was NLP Developed?
NLP has been practiced for nearly 50 years, and can trace its roots back to cutting edge research undertaken in California in the 1970s. In their early research, Richard Bandler and John Grinder showed the links between neurological processes, language, and experience. This led to the idea that NLP could be used to address issues as far reaching as phobias, tic disorders, psychosomatic illnesses, and depression to name but a few.
From there NLP has become one of the leading forms of treatment across the world, and is regularly integrated into management training workshops for many of the world’s most outstanding leaders. As well as offering far reaching help and assistance to millions of people, NLP is also known for its speed and efficiency in addressing highly complex root causes.
Why I Trust NLP
As a skilled practitioner for many years, I have seen firsthand the benefits that NLP can have on people’s lives. By combining these wealth of positive outcomes with a thorough and detailed understanding of the underlying science, I am ideally suited to identifying when NLP can be of benefit to my clients.
Because I take a bespoke approach during every session, I am able to deploy the right tools at the right times so that you can see the progress your hard work deserves. This personal approach is something I take great pride in, and its efficacy is supported by the overwhelmingly positive results my clients have achieved.
Using NLP to Cure Lifetime Phobias
Phobias are one of the most common things that people come to me with, and that’s entirely understandable when you think about how the brain works. Our survival instinct is the overwhelming pattern of behaviour in the brain because it’s what ensures we stay safe and well even when faced with situations we have not encountered before.
NLP allows you to disrupt unhelpful patterns of behaviour within the brain which have seized onto perceived threats years ago. This enables you to quickly process and then move past phobias which have been a daily part of your life for as long as you can remember.
Using NLP For Anchoring to Lock-in Desired States of Thinking
When you suddenly find yourself in the positive frame of mind that you have always been seeking, it can be quite a profound moment. Then you think to yourself ‘if only I could bottle this feeling.’
One of the main applications of NLP is referred to as anchoring, and it’s a set of personal tools which allow you to lock-in desired states of thinking so that you can return to them whenever you need them. This is especially useful when you want to optimise performance for a short period of time such as a speaking engagement, job interview, or sporting event.
Using NLP to Redraw Negative Pictures in the Mind
One of the things which people struggle with most often, are recurring negative thoughts and pictures which tell them they can’t do something. My approach to NLP allows you to redraw these pictures so that rather than talking you out of the task at hand, they actively spur you on to bigger and better things. Ideal if you want to be able to get the most out of yourself every single day.
What Does the Future Look Like?
NLP is a complex set of tools which need to be applied in the correct way if you’re to see the results you deserve. Rather than embarking on treatment by yourself, I always recommend seeing a trained practitioner.
By working together, we can get to know you, understand the issues and struggles that you’re facing, and then develop a personal tool kit which will allow you to see the positive changes you desire.
