Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
How Can Neuro Linguistic Programming Help Me?
A therapist 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. NLP works most effectively when combined with hypnotherapy.
What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)?
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 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 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 changeable.
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. You do get what you focus on, so focus on what you want.
