What is NLP?

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP does not have the same model of "problem" and "solution" as clinical psychiatry, instead NLP is based upon helping clients to overcome their own self-perceived, or subjective, problems rather than problems that others may feel they have. NLP also allows the client to choose additional goals as they learn more about their problems, and to modify those goals further as a result of the extended interaction.

The NLP approach does not focus on the past, but instead, focuses on the present and future. Sarah uses respectful curiousity to invite the client to envision their preferred future and then therapist and client start attending to any moves towards it, whether these are small steps or large changes. To support this, questions are asked about the client’s story, strengths and resources, and about exceptions to the problem.

The effectiveness of any intervention is in many ways considered to be a client judgement, rather than a clinical judgement. The reason behind this is that the client had the perception of a problem initially and had judged the need to approach a therapist because of it. Also because of this, terms like "cure" are not part of NLP, primarily because NLP does not necessarily see presenting symptoms in terms of "illness" and "cure".

NLP will provide you with the skills to define and achieve your outcomes or goals and a heightened awareness of your five senses, allowing you to remain flexible, on track and maintain rapport with those around you.

How does NLP Work?

Have you ever done something so elegantly and effectively that it took your breath away? Have you had times where you were delighted at what you did and wondered how you did it?

NLP shows you how to understand and model your own successes, so that you can reproduce them. It is a way of discovering and unfolding your personal genius, a way of bringing out the best in yourself and others.

NLP is the study of excellence. It is the study of both the conscious and unconscious processes that combine to enable people to do what they do. The key to success is often unknown at a conscious level. Using NLP you can elicit these unknown pieces.

You may want to improve your relationships, or eliminate an anxiety, or become more competitive in the market place. The key pieces are not found in the muscles, but in your inner thoughts, like words or pictures, or feelings or even beliefs. Once you know these unknown pieces you can change them. NLP exercises are like thought experiments, mental exercises or a game. The laboratory is your mind...
