Life Coaching & NLP

 

People communicate feelings in different ways. Most of these feelings are
actually communicated unconsciously, be it through tone, volume, pace, facial
expressions, body language and words. NLP practitioners are trained to
recognise these subtle, unconscious clues so that they can understand how their
client is feeling. A practitioner can identify the self-imposed restrictions the
clients have put on themselves through unveiling the client’s mental map and
working with them to move forward.


The three most common types of limiting beliefs/self-imposed restrictions
include:

     hopelessness, worthlessness, helplessness
    

It is easy for people to set themselves up for failure if they are constantly
thinking negative thoughts. Comments such as, “I’m not good enough”, or “other
people are better than me” can limit an experience and the chance of
accomplishment. It is common for an NLP practitioner to cover these negative

beliefs by asking a series of questions.


     Why do you believe you do not deserve happiness or success?
     Why can’t you succeed?
     What is preventing you from fulfilling your dreams?


The answers to these questions can help to reveal the feelings that are causing
the limiting beliefs. An NLP coach will then begin to explore and challenge the
limitations with the hope of changing the client’s negative thoughts.

 

What to expect
While the methods used by professionals will all differ, the standard NLP
coaching session will follow the same, basic pattern.


Initially, the practitioner will ask what you want to change and the problems you
want to overcome. They will pay close attention to what you are saying, how you
say it and tailor the session to your responses.


The NLP coach will then work through a range of exercises with you in order to
piece together your “life map”. They will begin to introduce new thought
processes in order to help you widen your boundaries.


It is common for the practitioner to give you a number of exercises to practise
at home. This will help you get accustomed to the techniques learnt in the NLP
coaching session. While the main neurological changes will have occurred during
the session, they may take time to settle in. It is normal for the changes to
progress over time, as you get back into your daily routine.


You may be asked to record how you felt before, during and after sessions. This
is so you and the NLP practitioner can look back on the results. You will also
make a note of any changes you have noticed since starting the sessions and
record any at-home exercises you have completed. When you are ready, both
you and the practitioner will decide on the next stage of your life and what
change to begin.


It is thought that NLP is such a popular technique because it focuses on the
future. It works to explore future possibilities and solutions, rather than
encouraging you to dig up past memories or experiences. NLP coaching is about
adding opportunities and widening perceptions, rather than dwelling on the
negatives.

 

How can NLP help?
Neuro-linguistic programming is often regarded as “a tool-kit for the mind”,
because of this; NLP is used to improve all areas of a person’s life. It is known
to be particularly effective for improving the following situations:


Anxiety and stress
NLP coaching can be an effective method for fighting feelings of stress and
anxiety because it identifies the thought patterns that may be causing the
pressure. As soon as these unconscious thought patterns are recognised, they
can be challenged.


Health and well-being
One of the most important ideas underpinning NLP is that the mind and body
are closely connected. When exercising for example, people will experience
positive mental and physical energy. By improving the way we approach and think
about the world, we can improve the health and well-being of our bodies.


Fears and phobias
NLP is well-known for its effectiveness in helping people cope with fears and
phobias. Like with anxiety and stress, NLP can reveal the thought process
behind the often ‘irrational’ fear. NLP can help to change how a person thinks
and feels about what was causing them fear, so that they are no longer afraid.


Relationships
Relationships are based on communication and problems often arise when people
are not communicating or expressing how they feel. NLP can help a person
become more aware of how they communicate. Understanding this can help
people accept that others may have different views. One opinion is not wrong or
right. With NLP coaching, practitioners hope that by developing empathy skills,
a person will find it easier to build strong and long-lasting relationships.


Confidence
It is common for people to see an NLP practitioner for relief from their own
fears and limitations. The techniques used can help the person break the old
habits and beliefs and gain new opportunities. NLP is effective in boosting an
individual’s confidence by teaching them how to make decisions based on their
dreams, rather than fears.


Business
NLP is an excellent tool for understanding people and their ways of
communication. In terms of business, learning these tips from an NLP coach will
help a person improve how they communicate and improve their ability to
empathise and negotiate with colleagues, employees and managers.
