What is NLP and how can it help me?

The word NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming and was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s. It’s a powerful concept which is used to increase self development.

Neuro refers to our neurology = our 5 senses. Linguistic refers to language and programming refers to how that neural language functions. It is how our mind works and how we can change our behaviour and get outcomes by learning the language of our own mind.
Through our own mind we can achieve most of what we want. The conscious mind is the captain and the unconscious is the crew that follows. So we need to understand the language of our own unconscious mind. With NLP you are learning the language of your own mind!
The unconscious mind is one of the most powerful part of you. It’s where your thoughts, your behaviours, your thinking, your memories, your habits, your entire model of the world lives.
If you want to change your life, you have to change your Strategy, your Story and your State.
NLP therapy and coaching is extremely effective, because rather than just using questioning skills to get you talking about something, which you will do with a therapist, other techniques will be used to help you change your behaviour and your thinking. This allows you to be released from the negative memories, thoughts or feelings that are holding you back from making progress. Coaching is like action-oriented. We see the client as an healthy person and focuses on where they are now, where they want to be, and how to get there. A therapy on the other hand, tends to treat past emotional issues.
NLP has been methodical in mapping out the structures of the mind. By working with these structures you will be able to move things around, and get the power of controlling your way of seeing things, your behaviour and your state.
