We all go into natural hypnotic trances every day without even knowing it. It is this natural state of mind that is used in cognitive hypnotherapy.
Our approach is significantly different from the traditional schools of hypnotherapy. We draw on recent discoveries and ideas from Evolutionary Psychology, Positive Psychology, Cognitive theory and NLP and incorporate them into a modern idea of hypnosis to provide a framework for therapy.
The principle is that the client can find their own solutions with skilled assistance. It does not involve the therapist as a ‘controlling’ agent, or someone who dictates what is ‘best’ for the client. The client isn’t broken, we don’t ‘fix’ them, they may just get ‘stuck’ sometimes. We find the most effective approach is for the therapist to work within the client’s model of the world, not force the client into the therapist’s.
Working through self limiting beliefs, negative actions and patterns, and gaining tools techniques and new strategies to enable you to overcome problems, improve and increase confidence, motivation and self esteem.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an ever-growing collection of information and insights into how people function. It is backed up by a huge range of tools and techniques that can enable us to improve how we think, behave and feel.
It is based on the study of the factors which account for either success or failure of a person’s performance. It is, more correctly, called the study of success.
- 'Neuro' refers to how the mind and body interact
- 'Linguistic' refers to the insights into a person’s thinking that can be obtained by careful attention to their use of language
- 'Programming' refers, not to the activity of programming, but to the study of the thinking and behavioural patterns or ‘programmes’ which people use in their daily lives.
The simplest answer to the ‘What is NLP? question is that is is a way of precisely understanding how you do the things you do – so that you can improve your good methods and replace your not-so-good ones.
