Brief History of NLP
NLP was co-developed back in the early 70’s by Dr. John Grinder and Richard Bandler for the purpose of coding the structure of human excellence. Together John & Richard studied the work of several outstanding and effective therapists three of the most famous being: Virginia Satir, well know family therapist author of such books as “Conjoint Family Therapy” Published in 1964 and “Satir Step by Step”, A Guide to Creating Change in Families” Co authored by Virginia Satir & Michele Baldwin”. Milton H Erickson, world renowned hypnotist whose outstanding work continues today: Fritz Perls, originator of Gestalt Therapy”
Through working together and studying these outstanding therapists John & Richard identified significant patterns from their work and began to transfer these patterns to others and across other contexts. It is through this work other studies developed and applications of these patterns began emerging into other areas such as business, training, sales and communications. *It is important to note these additional and ongoing developments are very effective however they are applications of NLP not NLP.
What is the difference between Classic Code and New Code NLP?
Classic code NLP has limitations, as the patterns originally defined and taught are becoming fixed rituals which involve a lot of conscious attention and understanding. Although fundamental in the development of this methodology. Classic code limits the receiver of any intervention/s with much more conscious understanding and verbal explanation, limiting generalisation of processes offered from the practitioner of change. It can limit flexibility of choice.
New Code NLP works with unconscious and conscious interface. Utilising content free processes offering the receiver of any intervention/s more choice which enables greater generalisation across different contexts. Delivering interventions to the unconscious mind whilst the conscious mind is often pre-occupied with content that has stuck limitations that tend to focus on the problem/s being presented rather than the solution/s available. Working with New Code enables the unconscious mind to deliver solutions to the conscious mind ecologically and safely to ensure the client achieves the desired outcomes in a manner conducive to them as an individual in any context being presented. It also enables continuous emergence of change to occur.
NLP is like a gap analysis. It is not a fixed thing that can be boxed or one process fits a certain problem.
NLP is an evolving, ongoing ever changing thing. As human beings we are not all the same, we have many different patterns we use in different contexts on an hourly and daily basis. Well trained NLP Practitioners can assist you, by enabling more choices to be available, which can then be utilised across many different time frames and experiences to assist in opening up the system preventing it from becoming stuck and fixed. I combine both Classic & New Code NLP into my training and sessions providing multiple descriptions of processes and new developments as they emerge in the field of NLP.
Hypnotherapy has been around and used for hundreds of years. It is used to assist others in building self-confidence, change habits, improve memory, end behaviour problems in children, eliminate anxiety, fear, phobias and physical issues such as weight loss and stop smoking. Most importantly in healing emotional change processes whilst the client is in a hypnotic state with their mind open and receptive to suggestions. More and more in today’s world hypnotic language techniques used in conjunction with well taught NLP practitioners can achieve outstanding results faster and through free association both in business and personal contexts.
Is Hypnotherapy dangerous?
NO. In fact there are almost no risks when used by well trained professionals. You cannot be made to do anything you do not want to do. Anything that is against your moral values.
The only risk I am aware of would involve falling asleep. If whilst in a relaxed state you are tired and become too relaxed you may go from a hypnotic state to a normal sleep state. That’s fine if you are planning on going straight to sleep after the trance, but if you have other plans after a session or listening to some hypnosis tapes you may want to set an alarm clock just in case.
Recommendation: never listen to hypnosis tapes whilst driving or using heavy machinery.
