Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP, is the most exciting piece of the life coaches tool kit. This takes life coaching to a whole new level. NLP models can be used to open doors and expand possibilities. I use the power of NLP and hypnotic language patterns to enable people to access their personal power to transform beliefs and behaviours. Life Coaching with NLP empowers people to overcome obstacles, obliterate un-resourceful states, smash through fears and achieve goals beyond their current imagination. The moment of insight is like a field of dreams being lit by switching on the floodlights. It's time to play so let the game begin!
If you are looking for your next life coach I would love to work with you on your dreams and visions Lets bring them to life in their full technicolour glory. After all, your goals are just dreams with deadlines. It doesn't matter if you are looking for the ultimate breakthrough for yourself or with your partner.
This page is here to help you understand more about why people absolutely love the results they are achieving through Neuro Linguistic Programming, mindfulness, hypnosis, and breath-work:
Isn't it all just in the mind? You wouldn't be the first to ask. Mindfulness, hypnosis, trance, hypnotherapy are all considered to induce altered states of consciousness so in a word, Yes! It is all just in the mind. But so are you your values, your beliefs, your emotional triggers, your fears and your dreams. They are all just, in the mind.
Wouldn't it be phenomenal to be able to work in the language of the mind to create a change of mind? Neuro Linguistic Programming is a key to unlock the mind through conversational patterns.
NLP is the usual abbreviation for Neuro Linguistic Programming was a conversational therapy breakthrough in the 1970's. As with most breakthroughs in life, the understanding didn't really create anything brand new. In fact, the founders of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, researched successful therapists to discover the difference that made the difference. Their research revealed important patterns in both language and behaviour of both the client and practitioner.
It was the observations of the patterns that already existed that became the basis for the fundamental pillars of Neuro Linguistic Programming, the NLP Model Of Communication and the Meta Model.
Studying and practicing NLP allows you to see more, hear more, and feel more than just words alone. Experiences can be enriched or even eliminated with linguistic artistry of Neuro Linguistic Programming.
Neuro (as in - of the mind) Linguistic (as in - the words and language) Programming (as in - how it actually works). You know how some people like Microsoft, some prefer Apple? Either way, you can upgrade the software and those machines become even more effective.
The NLP breakthrough process is your personal software upgrade.
That's how NLP coaching works. Lets break it down:
Neuro means of the mind. For example a neurotoxin is something that poisons the brain and interrupts brain function. In NLP terms you refer to the mind as the conscious mind which is the operator and the unconscious mind which stores all your knowledge, values, beliefs and blueprints.
When you create a thought a pulse fires across your neural network in the brain and throughout the body. With repetition the same pulse can be fired almost without a thought, or perhaps a better way of saying it would be "unconscious" or conditioned response. Other theories also refer to the superconscious mind, or the universal mind which transcends NLP terminology but can be useful in certain contexts.
The use of language dates back thousands of years and scientists are still unravelling its origins. Early humans used sounds to communicate which developed over time and migration to spoken words. Then came sentences, structure and syntax. Language is therefore merely a learned behaviour, just in the mind.
There are representational systems that impact upon us in varying degrees and they are likely as unique as our fingerprints. However there are clues to our personal preference and Neuro Linguistic Programming helps us to observe and interpret those clues.
When you have a strong rapport with someone there is likely to be some connection to the representational systems at play. That could mean like attracts like, or even opposites attract which, whilst slightly confusing can be incredibly useful to know. It also means that you can communicate with someone at a whole new level which opens doors to perception and solution to obstacles. After all, a problem well stated is already halfway to becoming solved.
Neuro Linguistic Programming has been the leading personal transformation tool since the 1970's. In the early days people used to refer to Neuro Linguistic Programming as a users software manual for the mind. The mind is a network of electrical systems and connections that controls our behaviour. A computer operating system is the closest analogy to explain this.
Just as a computer needs a software program to run commands and functions so does the mind. When you decipher the code you reprogram the computer to adopt more efficient and effective behaviours. When you think, speak and behave differently, you attract all new results into your life.
Everyone has their own way of storing, accessing and representing thoughts and ideas that have developed over their lifetime. Decisions, beliefs, values and identity are the results of thought patterns which have been programmed. Some of the programming is ancestral, or genetic. It's built into the DNA through thousands of years of evolution. Other programming is learned through our upbringing and environment.
Some might even say the "Programming" aspect of NLP is using your mind for a change. If you change the way you respond to stimulus you change the outcome. It isn't always an external obstacle that holds you back. Perhaps it is just the way you think and speak about the obstacle.
In a nutshell, NLP helps you to understand your personal make up (Neuro) through use of powerful conversational models (Linguistic) that will change your thoughts and behaviours (Programming), which in turn transform your results.
Every craftsman has a favourite tool.
People have used Neuro Linguistic Programming for many reasons, such as increasing sales in business, improving communication in relationships, designing leadership development programmes, and more importantly, for resolving internal personal challenges, that can lead to personal breakthroughs.

NLP and life coaching could be just the ticket for your success.
Before you consider speaking to an NLP coaching specialist I recommend to get to know a little about your coach first. Just like any craftsperson, an NLP coach will have their own favourite methods and style that may or may not be the right fit for you.
I love empowering clients to overcome fear and phobia's, or eliminate disempowering beliefs. (more on this below) Some NLP Coaches prefer interventions such as weight loss coaching. Some might even want you to think Neuro Linguistic Programming is a "one size fits all" cure for anything life throws at you. There is no doubt that the potential applications and interventions are almost without limit but buyer beware. Let me put it this way, if you preparing a celebration meal, you wouldn't get the cake from the butchers shop right?
Find an NLP Life Coach who has a passion or interest that matches your needs. You could call this a life coaching niche, but at the end of the day, it's just life coaching.
Find a coach who you respect, who you trust and who feel comfortable with. Maybe even talk with the coach up front if you can. I absolutely believe that initial introductions go a long way to enhancing the overall coaching relationship which is why I invite new clients to take a free coaching consultation. No obligation. You don't have to, but I recommend you do. Or you could end up with something like this...

Life Coaching with Neuro Linguistic Programming is about clearing out mental clutter, emptying emotional baggage, and transforming your hierarchy of values. If you focus on a behaviour change as a goal, you might be successful for a while, but when you change your core perception of who you are your behaviours change forever.
Whether you want to transform your health, wealth, relationships, social life, family, work, career, self esteem, your business, hobbies, or even your education, an NLP coach can cut through the barriers and unlock internal resources you may not even know you have yet.
Coaching sessions with The Relationship Breakthrough Coach can be illuminating, inspiring, challenging, therapeutic, powerful, and rewarding. In fact, whatever direction your life coaching sessions take is where you will experience the rewards. To commit to working with a coach is really a commitment you make to yourself. Gift yourself sixty minutes each week to focus on your top priorities and see how far you can go.
My commitment to you is my full focus and attention to achieving your goals. Here is a taster for some of the types of NLP interventions that I might call upon for you:
I love this powerful NLP coaching process for visualising your goal as if it had already happened and dropping it right in your time stream in the moment of success. If you just use this one process you will create and write your goals in whole new way. These go way beyond SMART. These are interstellar! When you can create inspiring outcomes at this level you can literally be, do, and have anything you truly desire in life.
Something bothers you and you are bothered that it bothers you. And you are in a spiral you cant get out of like an emotional storm spinning around you. You feel like you can't move forward.
Gaining emotional freedom does not mean that the situations that bother you don't happen. What it means is that when those situations do happen, they just don't bother you anymore. You are calm, mindful and in control. That old storm just fizzles out leaving you free to continue to move forward mindfully toward your goal.
Your confidence seems to just disappear when you need it most. Your self esteem is already through the floor and you end up with a self fulfilling prophecy of failure so you don't even try. You play it safe, but you crave adventure, excitement and passion in your life. If only you could just not crumble at the first hurdle.
Take the first step today to let go of limitations and live the life meant for you. Neuro Linguistic Programming can take you through a personal breakthrough that will put you back on the fast track to your success.
Are there some things you do habitually that you wish you didn't? It's all just in the mind. This is an example of programming from your past. If you are not happy with the outcome of that behaviour working through these patterns and rewriting the blue print is where the magic happens.
Create a neuroligical shift that you wont even have to think about consciously. With Neuro Linguistic Programming you can literally upgrade the operating system from the core. Install the very best "YOU.O.S.!"
We have all installed beliefs about everything. Whether you brush your teeth or not is based upon a belief you have. Those kinds of beliefs serve us. But not all beliefs. The belief that you are too old, too young, to smart or too
change for building confidence. Who couldn't use more confidence, more enthusiasm, more patience from time to time? The reason why you don't have them now may be down to some underlying beliefs. Your relationship can go from strength to strength with the right mindset and this tool might just be perfect for the job.
Whether you want to quit something or start something incredible, it doesn't matter. There is no issue to too small, too big, too embarrassing or even too bizarre. If that issue is holding you back, I encourage you to arrange a free coaching consultation. Who knows where this could lead?
Millions of people around the world have already experienced life changing results through life coaching with Neuro Linguistic Programming. If they can do it, so can you. Here are just a few real life examples of my own:
When a professional poker players game went to pot he needed to break the habit. Neuro Linguistic Programming helped transform his unconscious pleasure associations with weed. We switched programs to break the habit. Instead of visualising rolling a joint he would only see the most revolting image he could think of. Thick, slimy brown slugs on his fingers! It never even got near to his mouth!
A professional chemist working in a famous London hospital had all the knowledge and the experience to take his career to the next level. Except for one thing. When it came to interviews he literally froze on the spot and couldn't get his words out. Neuro Linguistic Programming helped transform his self image. We discovered he had a passion for guitar. He walked into that interview like rock star on stage and nailed it!
Even the thought of flying made one client feel physically ill. Family holidays had been a real challenge. Neuro Linguistic Programming helped interrupt their thought patterns. We replaced her fears with amusement, excitement, and confidence. When she was caught giggling in her seat on the plane, this little breakthrough didn't only transform the client, it had an impact on the whole family!
A successful sales executive was dealt a devastating condition and lost all his confidence. Neuro Linguistic Programming helped him reconnect the resources he already had within. He loved sports, and loved competition. We transformed his thinking. Instead of fearing the procedures, he visualised walking out onto the iconic Wembley Stadium turf and winning the best game of his life!
