NLP Neuro - Linguistic Programming

Alert! You've been programmed! As we grow up and learn the rules of life, our brain learns by linking up neurons (brain cells) in the brain which then determine how we experience the world.

Okay, that might be a bit much to think about, so let's take it to a more practical level. When we learn, our brain makes new connections between our brain cells and they become "wired" together. When we repeat what we have learned, the brain makes this learning more and more automatic, until it becomes a habit.

We have habits in what we do which are obvious like smoking or overeating. Habits make our life easier, we don't have to relearn to drive a car everyday or tie our shoes - its automatic. But, less obvious habits are the habits in what we think and how we feel. And its these thinking and feeling habits or "mental programs" that have everything to do with our success or lack of it.

NLP Neuro- Linguistic Programming works because it works with your brain. By understanding how our brain operates, we can set up new patterns and programs - the patterns or mental habits that lead to our success, health, well-being, and even our life happiness.

This is Your Brain

Understanding how the brain stores and processes information is helpful in understanding the basis of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) exercises.

Our brain uses different areas to process and store information.

Information comes in through sensory channels: Vision, Auditory, Kinesthetic (touch), Gustatory, Olfactory.

Information is routed through the hypothalamus which sorts information and sends it off to the appropriate areas for processing.

Each area of the brain stores information and memories related to that area of functioning. The more senses we use, the more areas of the brain that are active in learning. We can increase the efficiency of memory recall by incorporating 2 or more areas into the process. As we do this, it creates an internal reminder system as the information is stored in more places.

Because its all about your brain - the programs you have can affect any area of your life!


Discover Your Brain on NLP!

With the right tools, we can help your brain replace old patterns quickly. Now, you might be thinking, "It takes 30 days to make a new habit" well that old saying is simply outdated! With the tools of NLP, we can help the mind set up a new habit in as little as one session - or less! What's the magic - we work with the brain, the brain makes habits through repetition.

What's really happening in that "30 days of making a habit" is the repetition. Now, you don't have to wait 30 days, you can begin to set up how you want your brain to operate. Yes, you can even choose how you want to think and feel - but you have to set it up before you get there.

NLP though extremely effective is not a quick fix. Depending on your challenge or issue, it may be very simple, like remembering to take the garbage out, to more complicated, like ending cravings, or feeling more confident in a crowd.

What NLP does give you is the freedom to choose your patterns and programs rather than just living out the ones you already have. We get these programs from our parents our culture, our school experiences and life in general.

The real question is - Do you like the programs you have? Are they working for you - or is it time to upgrade.  I laugh, I think its a little like Windows - are you operating from a 2.0 system when there is 3.0 available?

When your brain is working for you - you will be amazed at what you can do, feel, and be!

It's time to live your best- and with the right tools, you can set your mind up to help you live it!


Are you a coach, therapist, psychologist, counselor, or in the helping profession? Have you been frustrated in working with some clients, its like they just stay stuck. Or, do you find your constantly running into the same wall with your clients? Low self-esteem, lack of motivation, etc.

Learn the tools to help your clients re-wire their brain for better results! NLP Neuro-Linguistic Programming will give you the tools to help your clients better, they notice the difference and experience great results.

As your clients are getting better results, they feel better, they refer more because they notice the difference even from a single session!

As a Master NLP Practitioner, I get amazing results with my clients. My practice is remarkably fulfilling as I help clients understand the patterns that created their problems and guide them through the processes using NLP to create new patterns and programs in the brain.

Rather than constantly fighting themselves with old behaviors, old thoughts and negative feelings, they feel empowered in moving forward and taking positive action in their life.
