Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Insight why you do things?
NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming
- Neuro: the brain learns
- Linguistic: language composed of words, sentences, pitch, sounds and texts.
- Programming: while communicating we can teach other people, or others can teach us.
It is good to even stand still and rest in life now and then. Many things we do and think, become a “habit” over time. We then live on automatic pilot, as it were. The way we communicate with other people is determined by our beliefs, values and norms, cultural background, etc.
NLP models and techniques help you to gain more insight into the ways you do things. Insight into those unconscious patterns is often enough to initiate change.
If you keep thinking the way you thought and doing what you did, you will get what you always got.
If you are struggling with recurring complaints such as anxiety, uncertainty, fear of blushing, mild depression, panic attacks or other (psychological) complaints, personal coaching, using NLP is the appropriate method to tackle this.
With NLP, you gain access to a supreme state of creativity, optimal health, change of limiting beliefs, and strengthen your self-esteem! The powerful method of NLP gives you the opportunity to easily access your mental, physical and emotional resources and / or natural skills and creativity.
Whether deployed for personal and / or professional use, NLP coaching aims for broadening your true potential even more.
What do you learn with NLP?
With NLP you will learn to influence unconscious brain processes, through spoken language and non-verbal communication. For example, you can use NLP to learn to feel better, communicate better, or make better strategies for the work you perform.
NLP Coaching is based on all successful NLP techniques that have been developed over the past 40 years. During NLP coaching, you will work with me as coach to provide insight into the way, in which your brain processes information. This way you will find out what the ideal process is for you, to change things.
As an NLP coach I respond to this by teaching you the techniques that are right for you and in a way that works well for you.
NLP = No therapy
NLP Coaching is, contrary to popular belief not a therapy. During NLP coaching you will learn to get a grip on your thoughts and life yourself with powerful and useful NLP techniques. It is a very powerful tool for coaching and guidance and intended for people who want to grow and develop.
Practice NLP means freedom. Freedom to choose whether you get angry about that one annoying colleague or family member or whether that person gives you peace or strength. Freedom to choose whether you get anxious when you have to give a presentation or whether it gives you confidence or energy. Freedom to feel the way you want to, freedom to act the way you want and freedom to be who you want to be. In short: freedom to follow and achieve goals and dreams. That is NLP and therefore suitable for anyone who wants to improve themselves.
In short, with NLP you can ....
- make better interventions
- communicate and collaborate more effectively
- better relationships and deeper contact
- influence better and faster
- adequately solve mental obstacles
- implement changes successfully
- tackle irritation / resistance
- understand the other better
- get more / better information from a conversation
- achieve your goals better (sharper focus and prioritize)
- develop your strengths
- clean up negative experiences from the past
- evoke a positive mood in yourself
- present yourself better
- more energy to do the things you want to do
- and you eventually experience more peace
The history of NLP
When NLP was invented in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, they discovered that successful behavior can be mapped. It started with the successful therapists Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls and Milton Erickson. Richard Bandler and John Grinder found that there was a similarity in the communication of these three well-known therapists and came up with a way to map this so that they could then teach it to other people.
This is how NLP emerged as a method to achieve results very quickly and effectively in therapy sessions. Over time, more and more successful people have been modeled, including successful business people, yogis shamans and many other therapists.
In the meantime, NLP has grown into a method that is maintained worldwide in therapy sessions and business life.
