What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

How NLP works

The basic model for change in NLP is:

Present State         —————–>      Desired State


  • The Present State  –  is where you are now
  • The Desired State  –  is where you want to be
  • The Resources – are the techniques and practices used to bring about this change.

With regards to say a sportsman, if their Present State was – doing pretty good and achieving second place and their Desired State was – excellent and coming first.

Then NLP can be the key, the Resource for transformation from Present State to Desired State. A major use for NLP is in achieving excellence in your chosen field, whether it is business, personal development, sport or whatever you choose to be successful at.

With regards to personal development changes, NLP is useful at a therapeutic level where, a Present State, for example is of anxiety, low self esteem, weight problems, worry and stress, a whole range of conditions that unfortunately are quite common today. NLP aims to unravel these limiting behaviours and beliefs and replace them with new abilities and a clear state/clarity of mind that is empowering and life enhancing.

Sessions are available on a one to one basis and are private and confidential.

Therapies (2)Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis in one form or another has been around since the Egyptians built the pyramids, yet the form we know it today, dates back to the 1800’s when it was used in clinical circumstances. Over the last 200 years there have been many developments and now its use is wide spread throughout the world.

What is hypnosis? – Hypnotherapy is a type of progressive guided relaxation which allows access to the subconscious areas of the mind. There are many misconceptions about hypnosis due to stage hypnotism shows and these will be discussed with you before a session and you will be put completely at ease. Hypnosis is only possible with your cooperation and you will remain fully in control throughout.

The mind is a powerful thing – hypnosis, aims to tap into the subconscious in order to help you make positive changes via suggestion and a greater awareness. By effectively side-stepping the conscious mind, hypnotherapy is often successful at finding the underlying cause of a problem, whether that problem results in physical or emotional trauma.

Advocates believe, hypnosis may benefit patients with a wide range of issues, including addiction, eating disorders, self confidence, stress and depression, sleep disorders, trauma, fears and phobias, memory, pain relief and even physical health problems such as irritable bowel syndrome and psoriasis.

What does hypnosis feel like? – According to the Hypnotherapy Association, hypnosis feels rather like the moment between sleep and waking. Every patient will experience this trance like state differently and there is no right or wrong way to feel, but generally it creates a sense of deep relaxation and calm.

Contrary to popular belief, a hypnotherapist is not controlling your mind – hypnosis is merely a state of heightened relaxation and altered awareness whereby a therapist can ‘guide’, your subconscious, resulting in positive change in the conscious mind.

During hypnosis a patient will be fully aware of what is happening and remember details of the session afterwards.

While some problems may be solved in one session, other more deep-rooted issues may require more than one treatment.

Sessions are available on a one to one basis and are private and confidential.
