NLP Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy
NLP Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy aim to induce a relaxed and receptive state (trance) in their clients in order to access the subconscious. Many of the obstacles that prohibit or limit a person’s experiences are deeply embedded in the subliminal, so by accessing the thought procedures that typically remain concealed, hypnotherapists can work with clients to change the preventive thought pattern and make room for positive growth.
An NLP practitioner will look at your attitude, your language and how you use it, your sympathetic of relationships and your aptitude to build relationship, as well as the physical and emotional states that are best for achieving a task. Effective communication and insight of others and ourselves will also be key focuses. All of these will be analysed and inspected by the professional so that a plan for improving understanding, motivation, learning and memory can be formed.
Numerous hypnotherapists train in NLP to help improve their aptitude to connect more efficiently with their clients, as well as to assistance their clients communicate more efficiently with themselves.
What can NLP help me with? The benefits of NLP
There are many possible benefits to trying NLP. Frequently regarded as a ‘toolkit for the mind’, NLP is a technique used to improve many areas in a person’s life and is said to be mainly effective in supporting clients with:
- Fears and Phobias
- Health and Well-Being
- Relationship Problems
- Low Confidence
NLP focuses on the future. It works to discover an individual’s future possibilities and resolutions, rather than observing into your past experiences. NLP inspires persons to challenge themselves and take chances.
What NLP techniques will my hypnotherapist use?
NLP techniques attention on breaking down our assumptions and associations, in order to open our minds and enlarge our territories.
For example, when confronted with a challenge, do you focus on the potential problems or the desired outcome?
Outcome or problem
In NLP, concentrating on potential problems is recognized as following the ‘blame frame’. This involves analysing all of the negatives in great detail and asking queries such as ‘Why do I have this problem?’ and ‘Who’s fault is it?’ Whereas the people who focus on outcomes, find out what it is they want to accomplish, what others want, the resources available and how they can utilise these to reach an outcome everyone desires.
How or why
When asking ‘why’ all we’re really doing is seeking assertion of a problem that already exists. The ‘how’ question, however, takes us further towards understanding the structure of a problem. For example, ‘Why did this happen?’ is very limited as it searches for blame. ‘How did this happen?’ on the other hand searches for reason and result.
Feedback or failure
Frequently if we haven’t reached a goal, we think we’ve failed. Normally, the term ‘failure’ connotes negativity and disappointment. But what if we look at failure instead, as a form of feedback and a chance to reflect? Thinking in this way can open up your possibilities and help you to accomplish your goal the second, third or fourth time around. Instead of feeling dissatisfied, analyse the steps you took and classify which ones can be changed. Basically, this is the common idea of learning from our faults.
Possibility or necessity
Instead of considering the necessities in a problematic situation, consider the options. Options open the doors to potential, whereas necessities (thinking about what you have to do) can restrict your way of thinking and only serve to narrow potential.
Curiosity and fascination, or assumption
A big part of NLP is opening the mind to change and opportunity. Presumptuous we know something can limit the development of that knowledge. You may know that the world is round, but you should never assume that your knowledge is stationary. Knowledge is transitory and the more we learn, the more that changes.
Is Time Line Therapy the same as NLP?
Time Line Therapy (TLT) is an method derivative from Neuro-Linguistic Programming that works with your unconscious mind to release negative feelings. These can include anger, fear, sadness, guilt, and anxiety.
Created by an NLP practitioner, TLT is grounded on the idea that your unconscious mind stores memories in a linear pattern (a timeline) like a mental photo album of your life. Unlike NLP which focuses on the future, TLT looks at what can be learnt from past events, and how we can use what we learn to create a more positive future.
