Okay, so it’s a horrendous name, this is what it means:
NLP is an applied psychology that offers quick and effective techniques to help us to grow and develop. NLP can be applied to virtually any area of life, and it is all about personal growth and development.
Coaching is a process of getting people from where they are to where they want to be as quickly and effectively as possible. It does this through:
There are many complex and intricate theories surrounding hypnosis, however it’s fair to say that hypnosis is nothing more than an increased focus and/or narrowing of attention. This could be internal or external.
Stephen Brooks defines hypnosis as a glue that helps to make therapy “stick”, this is a particularly good analogy, particularly when looking at the therapeutic role of hypnosis in psychotherapy.
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state (trance) that happens to us all dozens of times a day while reading, watching TV and daydreaming. If you’ve ever been lost in a film or transported to a faraway place while reading a book, day-dreamed while gazing out of a moving train or been so focussed on a sport or hobby that everything else ceased to exist… then you’ve been in a trance.
Hypnosis is not sleep, although many hypnotists use the word “sleep” when talking about hypnosis. Therefore, some people can believe that they were not in a trance. Because they were aware of everything that happened, they believe that it didn’t work. In fact, most people experience hypnosis and remember everything that happened.
Hypnosis can complement coaching when a belief, attitude, condition or habit is held in the subconscious mind, it is very difficult to change when working on a conscious level (as most other techniques do) and therefore the problem can often persist.
Hypnotherapy works on both a conscious and subconscious level and so changes can often be surprisingly quick, positive and long lasting.
Meetings include face to face in West Yorkshire or Zoom video conference. Face to face outside West Yorkshire will incur mileage expenses which will be agreed prior to coaching sessions starting.
