Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an incredibly powerful healing modality/technique that supports clients in changing old outmoded negative patterns of behavior.
Neuro refers to the brain and the neural network that feeds the brain
Linguistic refers to the words we use which ultimately reflect inner core belief systems and give us insight into the way we go about our lives on a daily basis
Programming is the way the content or signal is manipulated to then converted into useful information. Essentially, our life experiences affect the way we react to external stimuli.
When used in conjunction with Mind Management Clinical Hypnotherapy, Mind Management NLP allows us to reframe the way we relate to a particular issue and thus assist in changing our psychology and physiology. The basic premise of Mind Management NLP is that the words we use reflect an inner unconscious perception of ourselves that in turn affect our psychology and physiology. As stated previously, “What the mind believes the body responds to”. Never a truer sentence has been stated. This inner reflection of our unconscious state indicates that a client really wants to change the negative way that they relate to a particular issue, problem or circumstance. The use of Mind Management NLP reframes the way a client feels from a negative state to a positive state which in turn affects the mind and the physical body in a more positive fashion. The client’s unconscious mind can then be directed under hypnosis towards this new positive reframed state.
Neuro Linguistic Programming was developed in the early 1970’s by information scientists at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Richard Bandler and John Grinder started studying how successful people communicated (verbally, body language, eye movements etc). By modeling their behaviors, they were able to gain insight into the thinking and actions of successful people. The two theorised that the brain can learn new healthy patterns and behaviors and that this will be reflected in positive physical and emotional states. What emerged from their work came to be known as NLP. For people not familiar with NLP, a great example of NLP is why do sugar pills (placebo’s) work in some people and not in others ? Could this be attributed to the fact that some people (consciously, unconsciously or both) believe that the pill will work and some do not? The ones that do believe are actually facilitating the mind to do its healing work on the body. The people that do not experience the healing more than likely believe the exact opposite consciously, unconsciously or both. This may seem simplistic to some but the belief that “What the mind believes the body responds to” is real to Mind Management and we use these guiding principles when working with clients with Mind Management NLP combined with Mind Management Clinical Hypnotherapy
