What is neurolinguistic programming?
“James knew he had some bad habits that were stopping him from getting promotion at work.He was surprised to find out that he could do something about them in such a simple way.NLP combined with hypnotherapy is a fast and effective treatment to amend negative behaviour patterns. Within a short period of time James was far more positive in his outlook and was rewarded by being promoted to the job that he’d always wanted.”
NLP or Neurolinguistic programming is a technique that utilizes a variety of language and communication based elements to influence the behaviour of our brain in a positive way. The aim of NLP is to alter the way we respond to certain stimuli. For example for an individual who has a phobia about flying, NLP can retrain the mind to respond in a calm non reactive way, thereby significantly reducing or eliminating the phobia altogether.
NLP has been described as a user manual for the brain, and its ability to enable people to understand the thought processes behind their actions is integral to its usefulness as a therapeutic process. It has become a renowned therapy for dealing with a diverse range of issues.
One of the most effective elements of NLP is how it is able to uncover previously learnt behaviours that are causing the unwanted emotional reactions. Finding the root cause of a particular problem, enables the practitioner to utilize relevant practical solutions. The way that NLP works, usually in conjunction with hypnosis for maximum effect, is to change the way that you respond to a certain situation, by changing the thought processes. This is the secret behind its success. In addition, it is a surprisingly quick process with changes seen in as little as three sessions with a suitably qualified practitioner.
As with any form of therapy, it is important to use the services of a professionally qualified NLP practitioner. Experience and in depth knowledge will make all the difference in terms of the desired outcome.
