Change your behaviour patterns

What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) therapy?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming – or NLP for short – is a practical and achievable therapy to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication and help make positive changes in their lives through language, behaviours, and thoughts.

NLP therapy looks at your thoughts, feelings, and emotions as things you can control rather than something that controls you.

Using NLP, we examine how your thoughts directly affect your behaviour. And effective behavioural change is done through conversation, like other talking therapies, working on both a conscious and unconscious level. First developed in the 1970s by Dr Richard Bandler and Dr John Grinder, they understood that all behaviour has a structure which can be identified, learned, and changed, if necessary.

Even the name ‘Neuro-Linguistic Programming’ can give you a breakdown of the main elements and how it works:

Neuro: The thoughts we currently have
Linguistic: The language we use both internally and externally to express those thoughts
Programming: The behaviours we have that can be changed

With NLP helping to change your mental and emotional behaviour patterns, you have the basis to manage your mind more effectively. As a result, you can think and act in a way that allows you to live your life and perform at your best with self-awareness, communication skills, and confidence.

Is NLP different to counselling?

While counselling and NLP are talking therapies that will help you overcome certain challenging areas of your life, there are distinct differences between them.

Counselling is helpful if you need to express your thoughts and feelings to a trained counsellor. And, rather than giving advice or specific answers, a counsellor will listen and offer new ideas or perspectives by discussing your issues with you at length. But many people don’t feel comfortable with this method of therapy

NLP differs in that to get results, you don’t need to offer in-depth information. As long as you provide enough background information, your therapist can use it to build a rapport or close connection with you. This will help you understand what area of your mental processing is causing the problem and your desired outcome. Through this process, your therapist uses action-related tools and techniques such as visualisation, anchoring, or disassociation methods to help you make positive changes to your life.
