Everyone has all the resources they need to make positive changes in their life, NLP techniques are used as a tool to facilitate these changes, leaving you to concentrate on what you are thinking, feeling and any other sensory observations.
NLP Therapy can also be content free. This means the therapist can be effective without knowing about the problem in great detail. Clearly this is a major advantage of NLP over traditional therapies as people seeking therapy may be embarrassed about the idea of discussing personal issues one to one with a stranger. The very nature of NLP removes this hindrance.
As well as being content free, experience shows that NLP Therapy also tends to be fast, typically resolving issues in several brief sessions, which will of course make it very cost effective and much cheaper than traditional therapies.

When we struggle with problems we feel the effects of coping with stress. Stress can be an acute response to uncomfortable situations the ‘fight or flight’ response.

Negative emotions such as fear, anger, sadness and guilt are there to teach us something. But when they’re there inappropriately, in large amounts, or at the wrong time, it’s an indication that emotional healing work needs to take place at an unconscious level.
Hypnotherapy and hypnosis is often referred to as trance work by NLP practitioners. People experience trance states in ordinary, everyday life.
More recently, therapists involved in hypnotherapy and trance work have explored the concept of trance states even further. The phenomenon of hypnotic episodes can generate experiences which feel very real, and may cause daily problems, and these have been created by ourselves.
Bereavement and grief reactions can be complex and stressful issues, for you, your family, and your friends.

Everyone feels anxious at from time to time. Meeting deadlines, going on a first date, appointments at the dentist, being late for important events often bring about feelings of mild anxiety.

Shyness (social anxiety and social phobia) can inhibit a person to such an extent that it will ruin your life, your career, your friendships and your relationships.
Depression is an increasing problem, and to a greater or lesser degree affects most people at some time in their lives. It is often brought on by sudden life changes, such as a death, break up of a relationship, loss of a job or employment etc. For most people these periods are short lived and naturally resolve themselves.
There is no single cause. As mentioned above, it can be triggered by an event that happens such as a death. Early life experiences can affect how we feel about ourselves, and if those experiences are negative or traumatic this can cause a downward spiral that is often difficult to stop. It feels like all your attempts to stop the mood make it worse, the more you try and think your way out the worse it gets.
This is a careful exploration of the cause of the depression and often involves the identifying the issues behind the depression, the root cause. This may be a recent event. However it may involve dealing with issues from childhood. This is done in a careful and controlled way using NLP and CBT to allow these issues to be brought to the fore and dealt with.
So many of the problems we experience in our lives can be traced back to our childhood. It does not follow that childhood was violent, unpleasant, lonely or threatening. People who have had an apparently perfect childhood can trace problems, hang-ups, obstacle back to those early days. True many problems are born from uncaring parents, but it is not always the case.
You may experience a constant feeling of unease, your stomach may churn, you may get palpitations, feel dizzy. You may experience depression, feeling worried, sad or low for no good reason.

You are frightened that you may fail, that you will be sick, seize up or just black out.
Many people who feel that they lack confidence or self esteem can and do benefit from the number of self help books that teach a number of techniques and approaches to show us what to do and say in certain situations. They can help build a positive attitude and are all that is needed to take that step forward.
Does this sound familiar. Is there a voice saying "You can't do this" or "Someone is going to catch you out"? Do you see others and admire their success and look at yourself and see nothing?
