NLP - What is NLP? Introduction to Neuro Linguistic Programming

What is NLP?

The Basics of NLP

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming and has been a huge part of the personal and professional development stage.

In a nutshell it is the methods and techniques applied and / or taught by professional NLP Practitioners and Trainers to others, in order that they can enhance their own brain behaviour.

Neuro

In essence the neuro part of the phrase relates to the brain itself as the word 'neuro' means neurons / nervous system.

Linguistic

The language part of how we communicate with ourselves internally, how we communicate with others externally and all forms of communication including body language and state.

Programming

The way we program ourselves for success, alter negative programs such as limiting beliefs or bad habits and how we improve ourselves and enhance life.

The Benefits of NLP in Coaching or Therapy

There are so many working models, techniques and strategies that come under the umbrella of NLP but here's a few:

  • Your Practitioner will be able to help you identify the unconscious limiting beliefs and then work with you to change them.
  • check
    NLP works on conscious and unconscious activity so is easier for your Practitioner to teach the techniques as well as use them to enable you to promote wellbeing and support confidence and excellence.
  • Strategy elicitation and implementation allows you to discover in fine detail (using submodality calibration), your own success strategy and then implement those in other areas that have previously been a struggle.  Learn more about that here >
  • You can learn to manage your states and choose which ones are most useful at any given time.
  • check
    Set up anchors for positive resourceful states and learn how to fire those when desired.
  • check
    Use techniques to override historical unconscious programs and reprogram for greater energy, more productivity,  belief in success and more.
  • check
    Boost confidence in areas that previously lacked and dissolve anxiety and procrastination.
  • check

At Enhanced Life Practice, we incorporate NLP in your session and are highly trained and experienced.

How Does NLP Work?  

NLP offers many advantages as both a philosophy of mind, awareness of how we as humans function and specific techniques that come in to play depending on your needs.

Without diving into a training session, here's some of the ways NLP helps your Practitioner evaluate you right from your first meeting.

NLP As A Listener ...

Your NLP Practitioner, depending on their skill level and experience - we have 20 years as NLP Practitioners, Master Practitioners and Leah is a full NLP Trainer - will be keeping in mind an awareness of the language you use when you explain your current circumstances, the perceived problem and the desired outcome.

Language is a reflection of our current beliefs and commitment level regarding the 'goals' we set for ourselves.

For example when using words such as 'need' or 'should', in context with a goal, it hasn't yet become a goal and your Practitioner will know this from listening carefully.

Also whilst listening, your practitioner will have an awareness of your tonality in using specific words and how you frame your sentences.  Listening is a very important part of every session and NLP training helps define specifically what to listen for.

NLP As A Viewer ...

Your NLP Practitioner will be watching your body language and your posture.  This too is a form of communication and something that we ourselves are less aware of.

And ... something you may already have heard of - is your eye accessing cue a suggestion of something useful or not?

Eye accessing cues are only useful as part of being aware of everything else you are talking about in the context of the session.

There are some techniques in NLP where recognising the area you focus on, relates to the experience you have about the topic.

For example, if you use a lot of emotion access cues when speaking about a topic, your Practitioner will make a mental note or if useful, reflect this to you.

NLP As A Technique ...

There are too many techniques under the umbrella of NLP to dive into in one page so there'll be additional posts with more specific examples added to this new site in the coming weeks.

For now though, NLP offers a multitude of techniques that can help the Practitioner provide you with a skill set to take away such as State Management, Anchoring, Rapport and so on.

Other techniques include Phobia Cures, Dissolving Anxiety, Retraining the Brain, Developing Success Strategies, Timeline Travel to embed new behaviours in the time and place they are needed and much more.

NLP Changed My Life!

"A a professional in the field of mental health, to discover how these techniques can and have changed my own life, has boosted my desire to train in the area myself.  I have changed the way I speak to my clients, my family and even my colleagues.  I will never go back to 'unconscious' communications and value every session we have!"
