Think of NLP as a Lost manual for your mind!
NLP is a study of the subjective Human experience. IT APPLIES a neuroscience to explore how your nervous system creates a meaning out of the information that has been taken into your subconscious mind through your 5 senses.
NLP techniques involve noninvasive, medicine free therapy that helps the client discover new ways of dealing with emotional problems, negative beliefs, destructive habits and much more.
NLP therapy is extremely effective, because rather than just using questioning skills to get you talking about your problem, it explores the structure of your thinking, to be then able to apply powerful psychological techniques to help you change your thinking, your behavior and your results on cellular level.
NLP Therapy can be content free. That means the NLP therapy can be effective without knowing about the problem in great deal. Besides NLP coach also has a non-disclosure agreement in which the interaction between the client and the coach is kept confidental.
NLP can help you if:
YOU FIND YOURSELF LIVING IN, AND THINKING ABOUT THE PAST.
YOU CONSTANTLY PROCRASTINATE WHEN YOU NEED TO COMPLETE A PROJECT OR DEADLINE.
YOU FEEL DEPRESSED, SAD, UPSET AND YOU’RE NOT SURE WHY.
YOU WANT YOUR PERFORMANCE TO IMPROVE AT WORK SO YOU CAN ASK FOR MORE MONEY.
YOU KEEP FAILING AT A NEW HEALTH REGIME, FALLING OFF THE WAGON AFTER A WEEK OR MONTH AND FEEL FRUSTRATED AT YOURSELF.
YOU’RE STUCK IN A RUT, SITUATION OR RELATIONSHIP AND DON’T KNOW HOW TO GET OUT.
YOU LACK SELF CONFIDENCE WHICH PREVENTS YOU FROM SPEAKING UP OR TAKING ACTION.
YOU’RE A SALES PERSON AND WANT TO GET MORE SALES.
YOU WANT TO IMPROVE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE.
YOU WANT TO REVEAL THE BARRIERS THAT KEEP YOU LOCKED IN POSITION, RESTRAINING YOU FROM FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE.
YOU HAVE PHOBIA OR IRRATIONAL FEAR OR AVERSION OF SOMETHING.
You are stuck in old habits that no longer support your new goal.
you are uNABLE to control your emotional state.
you are a HOARDER or compulsive buyer.
The SUBCONSCIOUS MIND is a powerful part of you, it’s where your thoughts, your behaviors, your thinking, your memories, your habits… your entire model of the world lives! It has stored in EVERY DETAIL of EVERYTHING you have EVER seen, done, heard, smelled or tasted.
The NLP Coach will explore your own PROGRAMMING - your persistent patterns of behavior, both effective an ineffective, that you've learned and repeat. Then, he/she will use a psychological technology to eliminate the problems quickly by re-wiring any past detrimental Neuro pathways of thought patterns and behaviors and help create new ones that lead to greater happiness and well being of Client. The new behavior is installed on the cellular level and feels very natural to the client.
A little breakdown of what NLP means:
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, originally created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s. NLP has its roots in the field of behavioral science, developed by Pavlov, Skinner and Thorndike. It uses physiology and the subconscious mind to change thought processes and therefore behavior and therefore results.
Neuro: Each of us has established our own unique mental filtering system for processing the huge amounts of information being absorbed through our senses. All the information we receive on a daily basis through our senses is filtered through our personal conditioning sieve (beliefs, values, etc.). As a result, our perception of what we see, hear, taste or smell is transformed into a unique understanding and experience of the world. A bit like when you make a cake: you throw all the ingredients into a bowl, but how you’ve mixed the cake, the ingredients you put into it and the temperature you bake it at (and even the air it’s subjected to), will all affect how it tastes, looks and smells. No cake is ever exactly the same (well, not if you were to really look closely!). A bit like your own finger prints.
Linguistic: We then assign our personal and unique meaning to the information being received from the world around us. We form our second mental map by conveying language to the internal images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells. As a result, this forms everyday conscious awareness. The information that we receive into our conscious and unconscious mind is then regurgitated back out through our language.
Notice when someone is describing a situation to you; the language they use may be very different to the way you’d describe the same situation. We delete, distort and exaggerate when we speak – most of the time without realizing it!
Programming: Behaviors, habits and attitudes are formed as a result of the information you take in throughout your life and the influence of those around you. Habits are created through repetition.
Your brain creates neural pathways when you do something repetitively such as a new health regime, eating habit, even down to the way you say something.
These neural pathways can either be to your advantage or detrimental, resulting in them having a negative impact on your life. The great thing about the mind is that everything you learn can be unlearned too!
This is a very light touch insight into programming. Without wanting to confuse you too much, we’ll leave it there!
Your mind and your body are connected, and your emotions will always communicate and reveal themselves through your body language and feelings. Sometimes, you are not even consciously aware of how you are expressing yourself. However, 90 percent of our communication is picked up and internalized through our body language. So, you could say something to someone linguistically, but your body language may be saying something completely different! Your body language is the window to the unconscious mind!
Unlike other traditional approaches that tell us WHAT we need to do, NLP is a HOW TO technology. It tells and shows you HOW TO achieve what you want and HOW TO become the person you want to achieve your goals. So you can have the personal success you want NOW!
Through the coaching process, you are stretched out of your comfort zones by your coach. It is only then that major changes are possible.
In NLP coaching, areas that people could be coached include:
Health, Career, Finances, Personal growth, Friends and family, Relationship, Spirituality
In NLP session, client is examining his/hers beliefs, values, capabilities, and behaviors around certain area of life. The methods applied to get results can be useful in many areas: creating confidence, motivation, sales, improved memory, athletic performance, learning strategies, buying strategies-- anything humans do and want to know HOW TO do better. There is a saying, "If it works, it must be NLP!"
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the same technique used by Tony Robbins, Tom Hopkins, Brian Tracy, Frank Kern, Joel Bauer, Eric Lofholm, Duane Lakin, the late Zig Ziglar, Oprah Winfrey to sell millions and millions and to teach others.
Dr. Bandler reiterates that NLP is more than just techniques. It is a curiosity about how people who are high achievers accomplish what they actually set out to do. It is also a methodology that assists you in discovering those thinking and communication patterns that prevent you from being successful and shows you how to achieve the results of successful people. That is, NLP is a process of discovering the patterns of excellence of experts, and it makes these effective ways of thinking and communicating available for others to use for their own benefit or to assist others.

NLP Model of Communication
We experience the world ("External Events") through our five senses:
Visual - Sight
Auditory - Sound
Kinesthetic - Touch
Olfactory - Smell
Gustatory - Taste
While your unconscious mind is able to absorb and store everything that is happening around us, estimated at a whopping 2,000,000 bits per second of information, your conscious mins can only handle about 7±2 "chunks," or roughly 126 bits per second (See the study, The Magic Number 7, and the book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience).
In order for us to have a conscious experience of the world – what we call an "Internal Representation" in NLP – our unconscious mind has to "filter" the 2,000,000 bits of information down to 126 manageable bits, each second. It filters the information in three ways:
And it does this based on the following filters that run deep inside our minds:
Your environment (Time, Location)
Many of these filters are largely or entirely unconscious and we use the tools of NLP to change them rapidly and easily.
What we are left with is our Internal Representation or our conscious experience. Couple that together with your Physiology, and that gives you your current emotional state.
All of our behavior and results are based on our Emotional State, so NLP gives you the tools to change your Internal Representation and Emotional State quickly at the unconscious level to achieve the restults you want in life.
