NLP is also known as eyes-open hypnosis - clients are awake and communicating throughout the session (but we do usually ask folks to close their eyes and relax although they are not guided into a formal trance as in hypnosis).
NLP uses the same techniques that salespeople use to make a sale, but of course we use them to help you overcome your fear of bridges or heights, to lose weight or overcome grief, sadness, anger or nearly any concern you can imagine. NLP is super for decreasing the emotional charge you still feel regarding past events, abuse or traumas that you may not even want to share out loud. As long as you can provide a brief summary, the details of the situation will only be known to you. NLP can be used easily for virtually any concern you have!
NLP exercises are typically about 5 minutes each and a short series of exercises has great results. NLP is usually fun, easy and quick.
Most NLP certified hypnotherapists consider NLP to be one of the most valuable tools in their toolbox and have a love for NLP due to its versatility and consistency in bearing results.
In virtually every hypnotherapy appointment, we weave NLP and hypnosis together for optimal results, but you are welcome to schedule an appointment for NLP without any hypnosis at all.
NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is a complicated name for helping people to reach their highest potential. NLP principles are typically used to train sales people to be successful and even to help people get dates. Supervisors and managers are often taught NLP principles to help them connect with their team members and achieve great results.
Common uses of NLP for hypnotherapy clients are to help the clients create a model for themselves of how they would look, behave or react to certain situations if they were performing at their optimal level. The hypnotherapist would act as a guide to help the client use the model to change self-limiting behaviors into self-fulfilling behaviors.
NLP can be used to help people see themselves from a different perspective. For example, if a client is having difficulty getting over a break up or divorce, the hypnotherapist can help the person to see the relationship as a 3rd party observer and can reframe the situation.
NLP certified hypnotherapists have fabulously fast, simple and effective tools to increase the benefit of the hypnotherapy session.
We would recommend that you seek an NLP certified hypnotherapist when you compare services.
