What is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP, is the name given to a modern (developed from 1970s onwards) range of psychological techniques that enable you to achieve your personal development goals. They can be applied to all aspects of life, such as business, sports, sales, marketing, health etc, and apply equally well to therapeutic change.

These techniques are derived from the study of individuals who are achieving excellent outcomes and then modeling what they do, particularly in terms of their thinking (Neuro) and language (Linguistic). By modeling these excellent strategies, you are resetting your own neural pathways (Programming or learning) to automatically behave in new ways to achieve your own excellent outcomes. It is an effective, proven vehicle for accelerated human change, radically altering the “old way” of lengthy psychotherapy.

Hypnotherapy uses NLP techniques to re-program old, habitual, limiting scripts imbedded in the subconscious and replace them with updated, healthier, less limiting ones.

A good way to think about it is like a groove in an old record: When you play it over and over again, the groove gets well-worn and therefore habitual. NLP techniques don’t get rid of the old groove, but instead create a new one that can overshadow or replace the old. Thus the person then has a choice as to which path of behavior s/he wants to go down, which empowers the client.
