What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming?

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), helps people  see that they are only able to see the world based on their feelings and perceptions. That what they are seeing is in fact not the real world, but rather a filtered version based on their beliefs, experiences, values, and some other factors. 

Using NLP techniques can help you develop in areas of your life and contribute to improving your personal performance and understanding of how people function. 

Communication skills and emotional intelligence can be utilised for controlling your life and mind.

NLP - For what purpose?

In life, you will experience good and bad moments. These will help you learn and grow in life. Memories, however, do not have emotions attached to them. This detachment is because memories and emotions occur in separate parts of the brain. So at the moment, you will experience feelings, and then you'll be able to recall them.

The hippocampus is the part of the brain responsible for storage of long term memories. The amygdala is the part of the brain that controls emotions. When you recall a memory from the hippocampus, the amygdala will give you a quick little reminder of the emotions you felt. Because of this, it is possible to change the feeling that relevant to a particular memory.

By engaging an NLP practitioner, you can change the way you think, view the past, and approach your life with a different mindset. It can help strengthen your communication abilities and improve your emotional intelligence. It’s a way to control your mind which helps you better control your life.

NLP Vs Hypnosis: What Is The Difference?

Hypnosis is a specific set of tools and techniques to help you enter into a trance-like relaxed state.

NLP, on the other hand, has no formal induction. It doesn’t use the same tools and techniques as hypnosis, because both your conscious mind and unconscious mind are involved.

So when NLP was discovered, the early pioneers looked at hypnosis and modeled it. But NLP alone is not necessarily hypnosis. This is why, in NLP Master Practitice we use both modalities together, depending on what the client will benefit the most from.

Is NLP Safe?

Can I be influenced by NLP, can I be made to do something that I don’t want to do?

My answer is that it is happening every minute of the day. We are being influenced every minute of the day by advertising, by others, even by ourselves!!

Why does NLP work?

Many of us just go with the crowd, listen in a very superficial way, and don’t really look and take things in. Those who do listen and look will be able to guide you in the direction they want you to do in.

NLP can be unsafe if used unethically, but is incredibly powerful when used correctly

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like relaxed state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you're under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions.

Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It's important to know that although you're more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don't lose control over your behavior.

Why It's Done?

Hypnotherapy can be an effective method for coping with stress and anxiety. In particular, hypnosis can reduce stress and anxiety before a medical procedure, such as a breast biopsy.

Hypnosis has been studied for other conditions, including:

Pain control. Hypnosis may help with pain due to burns, cancer, childbirth, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, temporomandibular joint problems, dental procedures and headaches.
Hot flashes. Hypnosis may relieve symptoms of hot flashes associated with menopause.
Behavior change. Hypnosis has been used with some success in the treatment of insomnia, bed-wetting, smoking, and overeating.
Cancer treatment side effects. Hypnosis has been used to ease side effects related to chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
Mental health conditions. Hypnosis may help treat symptoms of anxiety, phobias and post-traumatic stress.


Hypnosis conducted by a trained therapist or health care professional is considered a safe, complementary and alternative medical treatment. However, hypnosis may not be appropriate in people with severe mental illness
