What the mind can conceive, it can achieve.

NLP is a way to train or retrain the brain to get the results and the life you want. It uses the best of psychological, neurolinguistics and programs to enable us to reprogram decision pathways for the desired outcome. Instead of the subconscious controlling us, we can control and influence our subconscious. This allows us not only to make change possible, but to make change feel good. NLP models excellence, enables us to reproduce excellence and to transfer it to the areas of life that we want to influence. It takes the best of psychology, linguistics and behaviour models and gives us the ability to create the behaviours and the results we want in our lives, leading to success and happiness.

NLP enables clients to overcome obstacles, move forwards, get rid of unhelpful behaviours and not just cope with life but truly enjoy it. It is the retraining of the mind to choose a decision pathway: where once it took you to unwanted behaviour, it takes you to the wanted behaviour. It is training the subconscious to do what the conscious would like. You will find out that you are in control of your brain and can create the outcome that you want. As an NLP Master Practitioner I have access to an extensive toolkit of techniques that will be handpicked for each individual. Below is a brief description of just a few of the NLP techniques to give you an idea. I am also an EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy) Practitioner and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner.

NLP Techniques

Imagine Scrooge (yes, the Christmas movie) and think about a positive spin on Scrooge. Timeline work gives us the ability to see, feel, hear the past, present and future and use that vision to push us away from what we don’t want and to pull us towards the goals and wonderful future. An incredibly powerful tool that helps us to make change happen.

Using a state of relaxation to create images full of sensory information to work through emotional and life problems. Popular within CBT (Cognitive behavioural Therapy) it allows people to find relaxation quickly, release stress, find alternative coping mechanisms, enable you to choose better outcomes for you, increase confidence, motivation, and elevate mood. Visualisation can be used to help treat pain management, addictions and habits, mood management, stress and anxiety and to promote helpful behaviors, it can be practiced and reinforced outside of the sessions to reinforce the positive impact.

taking the negative image and swishing, swoshing and smashing through it with a larger, louder, better image. Useful in order break negative thought patterns and behaviours, reducing unhelpful habits, ridding of fears and phobias. It’s good fun, great with adults and children alike and has fantastic, fast results.

This is a method of eliciting an internal response and state using an external or internal trigger. So many uses, increased confidence, increased motivation, increased strength and focus, ability to access a state of relaxation and safety, used with people suffering from stress and anxiety, reinforcing positive behaviours. It is often so successful it’s like giving people the gift of accessing the desired state and the behavior that they wish for.

EFT

EFT is emotional acupuncture. By tapping on particular points on the body, it allows you to access your subconscious quickly. Very useful for resolving traumatic events, understanding the why behind our unhelpful behaviours and getting through the worst to enable you to break through for a better future. Useful for unhelpful habits, fears and phobias, stress and anxiety, pain management, finding better coping techniques.

Matrix Re-imprinting

This is used in conjunction with EFT. It gives us access to working on previous traumas and re-imprinting the impact they have on us. It takes the memories and enables you to work through them safely to reach an outcome where your subconscious learns a different message, a message that supports the future behavior you want. Taking the negative and making it positive, not only making the past more positive in terms of the impact it has, but allowing the subconscious to have a better lesson so that it has a positive influence and allows you to respond to situations in a more helpful and positive way.

You can change your future by changing your attitude.
