NLP is a way of understanding how your mind works.
We use it to make changes to your life whether that be:
- Changing your job
- Buying a new home
- Feeling happier
- Almost anything!
How does NLP work?
The best way to understand how NLP works is to give you some examples of the theories behind it.
The map is not the territory
Imagine a map printed on a piece of paper. Now imagine yourself going out into the world and trying to navigate using only that map.
It may have the roads on, maybe even the rivers and railways, but will it have EVERYTHING on there that exists in the real world?
Does the map have all the cars? Houses? Puddles? People?
Of course it doesn’t and this is the principle behind the saying “The map is not the territory”.
We all have these maps of how we see the world but that isn’t necessarily how the world is.
You may think you’re trapped in a job or that your life isn’t going anywhere. That’s just because you’re looking at your map – not what is actually going on in the world around you.
The truth is there are many options open to you and almost anything is possible. Maybe you can’t see it (like you can’t see puddles on a map) but a life coach can.
We will show you how to get to where you want and overcome barriers that or may not actually exist.
The meaning of your communication is the response it gets
A message only means what people take it to mean.
You may think your message is clear but if others don’t then that results in confusion, annoyance and misunderstanding.
Imagine a man who buys his wife flowers every week and yet his wife is sad and wants to end the relationship. She says that she is unhappy because her husband never tells her that he loves he. The man doesn’t understand, how can she say he doesn’t love her when he buys her flowers every week?
Can you see what the problem is? Don’t worry if you can’t, most people don’t get it and that’s why they find life hard.
If you don’t communicate in an effective way then your message is lost.
So how does NLP help?
An NLP coach like myself understands the above examples as well as many more.
This allows us to set clear, achievable goals that can make all the difference in your life.
In addition we have lots of useful techniques to overcome problem along the way such as:
- Rapid phobia cures for if nerves get in the way
- Various methods of finding what you want – even if you don’t know!
- Ways of explaining things to you that will challenge your way of thinking and make you find the answer yourself
NLP is one of the most powerful tools you can ever use.
