Neuro Linguistic Programming
Often described as the “user manual for the brain”, neuro linguistic programming, or NLP for short, encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming.
The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between the brain, language and the body.

How Does it Work?
In summarised form, we absorb information from the outside world, through our 5 senses, which are then processed by our brain, using 3 major filters.
Once the processing is complete, our perception of the event (negative or positive) is held within us, known as an Internal Representation.
Depending upon whether the Internal Representation is positive or negative, it generates a specific emotional State (or feelings) within us which, in turn, influences our Physiology (our body language and posture, etc.).
Ultimately, this is shown in the outside world in our Behaviour and it is our external behaviour that generates the Results we get, (even if we don’t want them!)
What Makes it so Beneficial?
NLP empowers you to understand the strategies in your daily life and the often, unconscious, habits you have acquired. If any of these patterns are holding you back, NLP enables you to create new strategies that can put you back on track. It can help you make positive changes, create new choices, be more effective with others, break free of old habits, self-destructive patterns and behaviours, and think more clearly about what it is you want and how to get it.
NLP is powerful stuff and involves many tools and techniques as well as models and new ways of thinking.
This is the best part! NLP can remove, in minutes, negative patterns that may have been holding you back for years.
You can, literally, re-programme your mind to think differently about anyone and all situations. You can be free of limiting beliefs, fear and anxiety and start to create a brilliant future for yourself. I know it sounds too good to be true but it isn’t! All you need to do is be aware of how you create your reality now and the unconscious strategies you use each day. Once you are aware of them, you have a choice. You can change or you can stay the same. Your choice will generate the results you get.
I use NLP in conversation when I coach, I use it in training when I deliver communication and leadership workshops and I also use it extensively in my Breakthrough Days. It is especially powerful when combined with Timeline Therapy and all your limiting beliefs can be eliminated once and for all.
You need never feel afraid; in fact, you will often find yourself laughing as we go through the processes. The best thing of all is that you re-gain control of your life and the choices you make. Once you know how easy it is to influence yourself, you won’t want to stop!
