NLP was initially created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in 1975 who began by developing models based on top communicators of the time. Their goal was to discover why certain people produced excellence and then to create models to allow other people similar behaviour. Initially they studied the likes of Milton Eriksson, Fritz Perls and Virginia Satir but over the years many other have contributed to the growth of this field. Inevitably, from these models grew a host of techniques for rapidly and effectively changing thoughts, behaviours and beliefs that previously had limited ones development. These techniques are what is commonly known as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
It is important to realise that NLP is a set of guiding principles, attitudes and techniques about behaviour in real life. It is NOT a scientific theorem. It gives individuals choice; choice to choose their behaviours, emotional states and physical states of well-being by understanding how the mind works. It removes self-imposed limits.
NLP explores the relationship between how we think (neuro), how we communicate both verbally and non-verbally (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes). Neuro Linguistic Programming, explained simply, is based on recognising the pattern you have for certain behaviours and then changing it. Careful and extensive work with the client is done to identify the patterns and the motivation for those patterns and then to break them using varying techniques.
Time Line Therapy
This was discovered by Dr Tad James and is massively useful for clients needing to lose negative emotions that are holding them back. It assists you in losing unwarranted negative emotions that are possibly influencing further negative behaviours you are trying really hard to lose. This is hugely useful for addictions and many of the more serious problems including trauma work.
For many people that feel that they are “haunted by the past” this is completely effective with wonderful results.
The combination of all the therapies provides safe, efficient and effective results for clients who want to change now and create a new exciting future.
