Neuro Linguistic Programing
NLP offers some fantastic tools and methods for you to draw upon which are very effective when combined with clinical hypnosis and hypnoanalysis but can also be done very consciously without any formal hypnosis at all.
It is a method of influencing brain behaviour (the “neuro” part of the phrase) through the use of language (the “linguistic” part) and other types of communication to enable a person to “recode” the way the brain responds to stimuli (that’s the “programming”) and bring about new and better behaviours.
It is basically the use of language to influence how we think and respond to situations. It is extremely effective to assist in learning new skills, improve a current skill, modify an existing behaviour or model a desired behaviour. It offers some great techniques for overcoming phobias, improve public speaking, reduce anxiety, assisting with pain control and is very useful for accessing the right state at the right time for sports or performance related issues.
It aims to make the unconscious thinking we do conscious and allows you to reprogram your own mind to work in a more beneficial and helpful way. It is often said that the mind is a fantastic servant but a terrible master. NLP enables you to take control of your own thinking and use the mind as a tool to get the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that you want in life.
