What is NLP?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an incredibly powerful discipline that enables people to unblock the structures of human communication and human excellence.  By doing so people can think, communicate and manage themselves, and others, more effectively.

NLP explores the relationships between how we think (neuro), how we communicate (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes).

When I use NLP techniques its like mixing up hypnotherapy and coaching. We work the subconscious mind but in a more conversational way. I may challenge some of your limiting beliefs, desensitise you to phobias, set goals, teach you tools to help you deal with stress and work through anything that is holding you back.

The techniques are really powerful for use in business as well as in personal situations. Most importantly when you are a parent or a manager, the power of our language is huge especially when you are using it on someone else. If you tell a child enough times that they are brilliant your child grows up believing in themselves, if you tell them enough times they are not good enough they grow up feeling they can’t achieve.

Just for today notice how you speak to other people, then notice how you speak to yourself. If either aren’t positive, then you are not getting the best out of yourself or others.


NLP can help you to:

  • Be more successful by learning to influence your emotional and psychological states.
  • Replace negative behaviors and habits with positive ones.
  • Transform the way you go about everyday tasks.
  • Be more aware of your impact on others and how to manage your behaviour for optimal results.
  • Better understand your own motivations, needs and behaviors and use these positively to have the greatest impact.
  • Better understand your staff’s and customer’s needs, motivations and behaviors.
  • Improve and enhance your communication skills at the office and at home to build better relationships.
