NLP & NLP Psychotherapy
NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) began in the early 70¹s with the study and analysis of highly effective, though very different therapists and their methods of working. It is just not a scientific theory but a practical set of guiding principles, attitudes and techniques about real-life behaviour. It is about the relationship between our nervous system, language and patterns of behaviour.
NLP can be used to improve areas of our lives that are already working well, as well as to solve problems. To many people the name "NLP" is misleading and sometimes off-putting. Contrary to what some people think, it is not about brain-washing or manipulation but about creating more choices in the way we think, feel and act, by enabling individuals to find and develop their own inner strengths and resources.
NLP has applications in all areas of life but especially in:
NLP Psychotherapy offers a wide range of highly effective methods, models and ways of working with clients. (Many practitioners, for example, are also trained in the use of hypnosis.) Through techniques which enable clients to understand and resolve the causes of unhelpful or destructive mental states and patterns of behaviour, a process of deep change is initiated and monitored by observable results. NLP Psychotherapy can make a very real difference to how people experience things, how they live and operate in the world, and the level of fulfillment they are able enjoy.
A high priority is given to ensuring that the client ends each session in a positive and resourceful state.
Time Line Therapy
Each experience of life is coded and stored deep within our system as memories. Your "Time Line" is how you unconsciously store your memories or how you know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. In 1985, Dr. Tad James developed this understanding of how we store memories and emotions into a simple but effective therapeutic process. The result was a collection of techniques which produce deep transformation very quickly.
Using the techniques of Time Line Therapy negative emotions (ie. unresolved or repressed emotional states such as fear, anger, grief etc.), limiting beliefs, or internal conflicts are liberated from memories of past events, resulting in dramatic improvements in the personal growth and development of an individual. Created as a branch of NLP, Time Line Therapy is a revolutionary approach which enables you to rapidly create deep, far-reaching results and thus the quality of life you desire. You can thus gain emotional freedom and control over your life - past, present and future.
Much lasting change and learning does not occur consciously. Any process which relies on communicating with and influencing the unconscious mind is hypnotic in nature. Clinical Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic process employing hypnotic techniques in such a way as to bring about beneficial changes. An outside influence - the therapist - assists in activating the inner resources of a person- the client- in order to achieve realistic goals. Generally it produces a relaxed state of consciousness which enables the mind to become more receptive. This allows the creative parts of the brain to utilise positive ideas and images to stimulate the desired learning and change.
NLP and Time Line Therapy techniques are advanced hypnotic tools for helping people change quickly without a formal hypnotic induction.
