NLP is short for Neuro Linguistic Programming.
As the name might suggest, NLP uses wordings and language (including body language) which appeals to the unconscious mind to generate success. NLP uses techniques which can make positive changes in your life and can stand alone as a therapy quite comfortably. That said, Hypnotherapy and NLP go hand in hand.
This modality or therapy is about defining a set of beliefs, values and behaviours and emulating them into thoughts, actions and attitudes which are compatible with success. Using techniques from NLP such as Anchoring, Chunking, Ecology Checks and Future Pacing challenges your thinking and beliefs so greatly that once you complete a technique even once, you are already in some way changed for the better. You may gain a better understanding, a new feeling and attitude to an old issue, new ideas about how you can reach your goals or our personal favourite, completely "re-wire" your mind to respond differently to old triggers or events.
NLP was developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the United States. Originally NLP was the study of how key psycotherapists were able to achieve remarkable results in their work. Over time, these studies turned into principles which could be replicated as techniques and the birth of NLP occured.
The true definition of NLP can be quite difficult to describe because it can be anything that uses language or actions to help move a person towards success or change. NLP is used to change a way of thinking, to help shape a new habit, to give a different outlook on an old problem amongst many other things. When you have a session with Lifestyle Hypnosis you will benefit from NLP the second you walk through the door.
