NEURO-LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING (NLP)
NLP was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970’s and is used today in many areas of our lives.
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming and is the practice of understanding how we think and process our thoughts (Neuro), the language patterns we use (Linguistic) and our behaviours (Programming) and how these influence the results we produce.
A key element of NLP is that everyone has their unique internal mental map of the world because of the way they filter and perceive information absorbed through their five senses from the world around them.
NLP uses perceptual, behavioural, and communication techniques to make it easier for people to change their thoughts and actions.
NLP offers a ‘tool-kit’ of techniques and mindset that is based on the study of human excellence. There are many tools in the NLP tool-kit – so we as Practitioners have the choice to blend tools in order to best help our clients. NLP offers practical solutions and focuses on clients making changes at an unconscious level. This leads to a change in their thinking which becomes automatic – they do not have to consciously think about the change or remember to behave or think differently. More importantly, changes made in this way, are long lasting and constructive.
Hypnotherapy can be extremely effective at helping them overcome challenges such as anxiety, phobias, poor sleep and many other problems. I am a training Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist.
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation, it can be very deep much like the state you experience just before you fall asleep at night time or lighter. During hypnosis, it is much easier for the brain to listen to and process information it is given because the conscious mind is less active. Hypnotherapy is safe because it is a relaxed state that people already utilize while learning, watching television or doing something creative.
You will never be out of control, switch off or be in a coma type state. The conscious mind will always be there in the background so that if anything is said which is out of alignment, or if for instance the fire alarm went off, they would be fully aware of it and wake up. When I use hypnosis, I will always ask for your written permission to do so beforehand and will fully explain how hypnosis works. My website Aligned Mindset is dedicated to Hypnotherapy.
TIME LINE THERAPY
Each one of us has a time line of good and bad, happy and painful experiences, events and memories. These shape the way we behave on a level we are not aware of and can hold us back in life. These behaviours may once have been a useful tool to survive but are now deeply embedded in the way we are that they have become a burden to us in the present.
Tad James, M.S., Ph.D. said:
“Your ‘Time Line’ is how you unconsciously store your memories or how you unconsciously know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Behavioural change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. People don’t change consciously. The Time Line Therapy® process allows you to work at the unconscious level and release the effects of past negative experiences and change ‘inappropriate’ programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.”
The model of Time Line Therapy is a collection of techniques that free a person from the effects of the past and no longer project them to his/her future – fast, effective and longlasting.
As NLP teaches the awareness of a persons unique ‘map of the world’ the coaching part is the part were the practitioner enriches that persons map of the world through coaching – a form of talking therapy.
Coaching can be a blend of NLP, Hypnotherapy and/or Timeline Therapy where, depending on each client, the practitioner will assess and use what way forward will be the most useful. Coaching is a fantastic tool for setting goals, clearing obstacles, and shaking up limiting beliefs. It helps with meeting and exceeding goals, both professionally and personally.
