Neuro Linguistic Programming

Brief explanation of the therapy

NLP is a therapy which explores the relationship between the brain (neuro), language (linguistic) and the patterns of behaviour that we learn (programming). The therapist will try to educate their client in the positive links between these in order to encourage changes in behaviour patterns which will help them achieve specific goals and improve the quality of their life.

What can the client expect at the appointment

At the first appointment the client will be asked to discuss the problems that they wish to deal with in a calm and confidential environment.

What will happen in a session

The client will be asked to give details and discuss the changes that they are looking to make in their lives. The therapist will then suggest new ways of approaching the difficulty to effect a change. A session will last approximately one hour.

How many sessions should the client need before they see a result

NLP, which can be combined with other therapies, is a safe and gentle way of resolving issues and can often work very quickly; many issues may only take a few sessions.
