Neuro Linguistic Programming

* How can Neuro Linguistic Programming help me?

A hypnotherapist using the principles of NLP can make many deep and lasting changes quickly and easily. NLP allows for quick and effective change of thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs that limit you. A few specific examples of things you can NLP for: fears, phobias and insomnia, help children with spelling and reading problems, and unwanted habits. NLP works most effectively when combined with hypnotherapy.

* What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a structure of experience. It is an explicit and powerful model of human experience and communication. It is how humans think and experience the world. NLP studies the patterns of “programming” created by the interaction among the brain (neuro), language (linguistic), and the body that produce both effective and ineffective behavior. It is the use of the nervous system (mind and body) through which our experience is processed via the five senses: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, and gustatory.

* How does NLP work?

NLP also involves the language and other nonverbal communication systems through which our neural representations are coded, ordered, and given meaning. This includes: pictures (visual), sounds (auditory tonal), feelings (kinesthetic), tastes (gustatory), smells (olfactory), and words (auditory digital). The programming part of NLP is the ability to discover and utilize the programs that we run (our communication to ourselves and others) in our neurological systems to achieve our specific and desired outcomes. Since much of this occurs outside of our awareness, NLP studies both our conscious and unconscious ways of communicating and programming. The term “programming” also indicates that both our consciously reproducible behaviors, as well as many of our habitual (usually unconscious) ones, have been “programmed” into our neurology, i.e. they have been learned, and therefore, most importantly, are modifiable.

* The power of focus

Your nervous system produces behavior of the internal representation systems that you hold in your mind. Positive self-talk is a must, not negatives. An Indian Sage named Patanjali wrote “The Yoga Sutras” and stated, “Where there is negative thinking, let there be reflection to the contrary.” You do get what you focus on, so focus on what you want.
