Neuro-linguistic programming is a scientific approach, often referred to as a behaviour technology, which can be used to change how an individual thinks and responds to life events and scenarios, to encourage a more positive and proactive set of thought patterns and behaviours.
It is an approach and methodology which does not only need to be used as part of therapy treatment, but it can also be used in the workplace or for personal development. The approach to linking visual and speech patterns alongside trending behaviours in an individual is an effective model to apply change and personal growth.
How does neuro-linguistic programming work as an online therapy?
Neuro-linguistic programming is an excellent therapy to work in conjunction with other therapies as part of a multi-discipline therapy treatment plan. Whereas other therapies focus on the ‘why’ to overcome the root cause of a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety or depression, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) focuses on the ‘how’ and offers practical tools and habit-reversal techniques to achieve recovery.
In summary, neuro-linguistic programming works by focusing on the three areas which can impact change from trauma, anxiety, and depression:
Neuro – a person’s thinking processes. The way you use your senses to understand and adapt to the environment around you.
Linguistic – a person’s use of word and terminology. How you talk to yourself and use language, and its influence on an individual and those around them.
Programming – a person’s behaviour. How a person organises their ideas and responds in their reactions, and its influence on an individual and those around them.
It is the combination of all three elements working together which produces lasting and life-changing responses to neuro-linguistic programming patients and recipients.
How do I know if I need or will benefit from neuro-linguistic programming?
If you are experiencing or living with post-traumatic stress disorder, an anxiety disorder or depression, then it is relatively certain neuro-linguistic programming would be beneficial as part of a wider multi-discipline therapy approach. For many of us, NLP is a useful tool to use, working alongside other online therapies to reinforce and support the brain’s retraining to improved and productive thoughts.
Following an initial consultation chat and initial guidance session, your treatment plan will identify if neuro-linguistic programming will be an integral part of your recovery to feeling better.
