NLP is the study of excellence. It teaches you how to manage your thoughts and really take control of your life. It’s like being given the manual for your mind.
People encourage you to “think positive” “stay calm” “be confident” – NLP is more than this, it teaches you HOW to achieve these results.
It’s based on the amazing discovery that in changing how you think can change what you think – and in changing how and what you think, you can dramatically transform the results you create in your life.
NLP stands for:
Neuro: How we use our minds, our bodies and our senses to create thoughts and make sense of our experiences
Linguistic: The language we use to communicate with ourselves and others.
Programming: The way we organise our ideas and actions to produce results.
My coaching and workshops are mainly based on NLP techniques because they work. NLP will assist you to develop and maintain high levels of motivation to achieve your goals, and can help convert barriers and obstacles into doorways to success.
Through the simple yet profound techniques that make NLP so powerful, you can get rid of unwanted habits, transform negative emotions into positive feelings, improve the way you see yourself, enhance your self-esteem and become the person you want to be.

A little bif of NLP History
NLP was founded in the ’70s by a mathematician Richard Bandler, and a linguistic John Grinder in Santa Cruz, California – they were curious. They had wanton curiosity about how some people were able to have fantastic results. They asked “what is it that makes the difference between somebody who is merely competent at any given skill, and somebody who excels at the same skill?”
So they modelled three experts; Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir and Milton Erickson, each pioneers and experts in their fields. They studied their physiology, their thought process and the structure of the language they used. NLP was uncovered, with the Meta Model and the Milton Model and other transformational skills and techniques.
When taught to others, they were astonished by the results. Students were achieving the same results much, much quicker. There was no need to study for years, this was better and evolutionary.
