Neuro Linguistic Programming is a popular technique, developed from studying world renowned hypnotists, that focuses on the way that we tend to think and process information that affects the way we see the world.
Most of these “programs” are simply behaviours we have learned that have become habitual ways of thinking and reacting to any given situation, but by the same token can also be “re-programmed” to our benefit.
Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP, involves THREE factors and can probably be best described by breaking the words down individually:-
•NEURO is about your Neurological system. NLP is based on the central concept that we experience the World through our various senses and translate that sensory information in to thought processes, including both Conscious and Unconscious thought processes. These thought processes “activate” the Neurological system which directly affects our Physiology, Behaviour and Emotions.
•LINGUISTIC refers to the way that we humans use language (and words) to make sense of our World, to conceptualise experiences and to then communicate that experience to other humans. NLP looks at how LINGUISTICS from the point of view of HOW the words YOU speak influence your experience(s)
•PROGRAMMING considers the ways in which we “learn” and then how we “code” or represent those experiences mentally. Your own individual Programming is made up of your internal processes and thinking styles (or “strategies”) that you apply when you solve problems, evaluate something, learn and try to achieve something. NLP helps people to “re-programme” these internal codes so that you are better able to obtain the results or outcomes that you want.
Neuro Linguistic Programming is often combined with Clinical Hypnosis to produce more sustainable results.
A Brief History of Neuro Linguistic Programming
Neuro Linguistic Programming really began in the Santa Cruz University of California in the United States during the 1970’s. At that time, Richard Bandler, a Masters level student of Mathematics and Information Technology got together with Dr. John Grinder a linguistics Professor to study and attempt to understand why some people not only communicated very effectively, but also how these types of people were able to overcome the adversity that saw so many others “fall by the wayside”.
A significant amount of their work took into consideration the successful use of Hypnotherapy by the Famous Milton Erickson, considered to be a Genius in understanding the impact that “words” could have on people and their ability to overcome problems.

How Can Neuro Linguistic Programming Help MY Problem?
Almost any problem where you recognise that your THINKING is the main problem can be addressed with Neuro Linguistic Programming which, as mentioned above, is often combined with Clinical Hypnosis to produce very good results.
Neuro Linguistic Programming is particularly helpful in dealing with Habitual Behaviours or habits because our thinking patterns, which have become ingrained over a period of time, are invariably held together by our language patterns (often this language is our own internal dialogue and not necessarily the words that we use when talking to other people) and NLP is particularly well suited to changing these very patterns.

“… you’ve made me a man again! I can’t thank you enough, and neither can Mrs ******! I wasn’t able to perform [sexually], and have had it like that for years. Going back and finding out why this happened meant that I could deal with it. My only issue is that the sessions aren’t long enough. I felt so good that I didn’t want to come out [of hypnosis]”
“I don’t know how to write this, so bear with me. For years, … I’ve pretended to orgasm so often that … I didn’t think it was even possible. You blew that idea out of my head alright. When I think about it it feels weird. I go to ‘sleep’ and wake up able to have shuddering orgasms but I feel so good about it that I just disregard my own surprise. I will certainly be recommending you.”
“Colin, we’re just back from holiday … I did the self hypnosis trick you showed me and imagined the flight as I wanted to experience it. It was great to be part of the trip this time … I must admit that I felt a little anxious in preparation for the holiday, but stuck with your ‘homework’ and it paid off big time. Thanks, buddy, for all your help.”
“I’ve tried the patches, tried the gum, and it didn’t make a blind bit of difference. I was stunned by what you were telling me in our session, couldn’t believe it, but you took the time to explain it and it really hit home. I AM A NON SMOKER … and I love it. Thank you so much. Can you please tell me why is this not available on the NHS?”

“Thank you, Colin, for giving me back my self confidence. You know what it’s like and you gave me the encouragement to lose my weight. This time, the weight is falling off me!I’ve lost almost two stones already … I feel in control again.”
