NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that encompasses the 3 most influential components involved in producing human experience, namely Neurology, Language and Programming.
NLP coaching is extremely effective, because rather than just using questioning skills to get you engaging your conscious mind, NLP techniques can be used to help you change your behaviour and your thinking that stems from your unconscious mind, which is largely outside your awareness. This allows you to be released from the negative memories, beliefs, thoughts or behaviours that are holding you back from making progress.
So, in a nutshell, NLP can be applied to pretty much anything where you want to improve how you do something, how you feel and how you think. These changes, however small, result in big changes in a person’s life over time.
Time Line Therapy®, created by Dr. Tad James, utilizes a person’s own internal “Time Line” to work with their unconscious minds in a variety of ways; including, healing emotional traumas and eradicating unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
Your “Time Line” is how you unconsciously store your memories or how you unconsciously know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Behavioural change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. People don’t change consciously. Time Line Therapy® allows work to take place at the unconscious level and release the effects of past negative experiences and change “inappropriate” programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.
The practice of promoting healing or positive development, using hypnosis, is known as hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind.
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It does involve the induction of a trance-like condition, but when in it, the patient is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotist's voice. In a hypnotherapy session the client is always in control and it is generally accepted that all hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis.
In the relaxed trance-like state of hypnosis, the hypnotist is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to the client, the seeds of which become firmly planted, which leads to positive change.
Often referred to as "Psychological acupressure", EFT works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously.
It is also now widely accepted that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease. The technique is now even being used within the NHS for a variety of health issues
EFT treatment is non-invasive and involves the use of fingertips rather than needles to tap on the end points of energy meridians that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin.
