NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. It was devised by Richard Bandler and John Grindler. The principle is that humans share the same neurology and therefore the same potential to behave in certain ways. All behaviour has a structure and this can be learnt and changed.
Think of the payback if you could tap unlimited self-confidence at any time. NLP could help you overcome mental blocks. If you are an athlete or sports performer NLP will help you to achieve optimum performance on the day of competition and overcome mental blocks against certain opponents, raising your game to a higher level. If you are in business NLP can help you achieve great performance in potentially difficult meetings, and manage your own state so that you can get great results.
Our techniques are aimed to fix the behaviour in a one or two stop session. The starting point is that our own beliefs underpin our behaviour and our ideas about what is possible. We are going to install new empowering beliefs and let go of old beliefs that may be holding you back. The sessions are focused on solutions, so after an introductory chat, we spend little or no time talking about the old problem. You will learn to change the way you think so that you can choose to run empowering thought patterns at will. This is the way to open up a bright future, full of options and possibilities. The techniques used are those taught in NLP and cognitive psychology.
This system means that these simple techniques are your tools for life. Once learnt you will be able to use them at will, away from the sessions.
