Neuro-linguistic-programming (NLP)

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) therapy incorporates behavioral modification and sensory techniques, through utilization of the physical body and the power of imagination; NLP is designed to help improve self-awareness, self-esteem, confidence and change limiting, reactionary patterns into empowering patterns. The goal of NLP is to help the client improve his/her understanding of how his/her views of the world affects how one operates in the world, and that it is necessary to change the thoughts and behavior patterns that have not proven beneficial in the past and that only serve to block one’s healing and success.

 NLP has been used to treat fears and phobias, anxiety, poor self-esteemstresspost-traumatic stress disorder, and overall reduced quality of life due to various psychological issues.

 NLP techniques include visualization, or forming a mental image of something you want, as well as visual-kinesthetic dissociation, a process by which the therapist guides the client in reliving trauma from the distance of an imaginative, out-of-body experience. The therapist may help you correct language you use that leads to negative thinking and faulty communication. NLP therapy can be short-term or long-term, depending on the individual and the extent of the problem.
