What is NLP?
NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) in its simplest terms is a way of changing someone's thoughts and behaviours to achieve rapid and lasting change.
We can become stuck in our lives because the more we use certain pathways in our brain, whether they’re positive or negative, the stronger and more dominant they become, a bit like if you were to work out one arm in the gym and not the other.
In reality this means the more we access certain thoughts, behaviour, feelings and emotions, the more likely they are to show up in our world, whether they're useful to us, or not.
NLP uses a variety of fun and interactive tools to interrupt unhelpful patterns and establish more useful ones, that over time become your new 'default' or 'autopilot'.
We can do this because of something called Neuro-Plasticity – which is our brains ability to adapt, change and be re-moulded. This means change is always possible, which is pretty cool!
Hypnotherapy is widely misunderstood, and isn't like the stage hypnosis you see on the television. It is quite simply an altered state of mind or awareness that enables you to have a deeper and clearer conversation with yourself and your subconscious mind, therefore learning and accessing change quickly.
During hypnotherapy you'll feel just like you do when you're completely absorbed in a task, book, tv programme, music or sports activity. What's important to remember is that you remain completely in control of everything you say and do!
