Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is well known as a powerful tool for personal change, therapeutic work, and is even used by corporations worldwide to build success. Neuro is all about what we think, our thoughts. Linguistic is about what we say, both verbally and non-verbally and Programming is all about what we do. NLP challenges you to think about what negative patterns are holding you back and how you think and learn. NLP helps you to transform your negative beliefs in all aspects of your life and to think about how you communicate to influence yourself through the language you use, mostly unconsciously, and how language directly affects your experience of the world and your behaviour.
An NLP Life Coach is essentially a wellness professional who should be qualified to take you through a life coaching experience that helps you to understand yourself better and make progress in your life so that you attain greater fulfilment and a stronger sense of purpose.
Many people seek life coaching for guidance in navigating a significant life change such as divorce or career change. In many cases people reach out for life coaching to help them build a happier more fulfilled life. Unlike other approaches that tell you what you need to do, NLP is a ‘how to’ technology that shows you ‘how to’ be what you want to be, do what you want to do and have what you want to have which means it is possible to have the success you want right now.
Life coaching is not therapy. Therapy focuses on treating mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders or other mental health diagnosis and I would always recommend that you speak with your GP if you are concerned about your mental health. In NLP life coaching we work through unresolved issues by restructuring how you think about them. We set goals, looking to the future, identify obstacles and then come up with resourceful strategies that will enable you to overcome each barrier.
One of the main benefits from working with an NLP life coach is the ability to gain a fresh, informed perspective on the problems that you face. Additionally, an NLP life coach can help you to identify negative patterns that could be standing in the way of your success and help you to replace these negative patterns with more resourceful one. Many people see life coaching as a way to bridge the gap between their current circumstances and the life they want to lead. Here are some positive outcomes from working with an NLP life coach: • Clarity on direction of your life • Improved work/life balance • A renewed sense of self and confidence • Elimination of fears and anxieties • Improved communicator • Feeling whole, rather than in conflict with self
