- What is NLP?
It’s a set of quick and easy, powerful and effective mind techniques. It shows us how we currently think and how to change or tweak the way we think. Communication is at the heart of NLP. It teaches us great communication with others and with your own mind. For more information, see https://www.traceycolenlp.com/nlp/
- Isn’t it for business, more than sport, therapy or personal development?
NLP is used extensively in business – sales, negotiations, conflict resolution, presenting skills, recruitment and deployment of staff – however, it is invaluable to develop a calmly confident outlook in any part of our lives. It teaches us how to be the best we want to be!
- Isn’t it a pseudo-science?
Only if you consider psychology a pseudo-science! NLP isn’t original, in so much as it’s a collection of psychological ideas that work. It’s a distilled down version of aspects of cognitive and behavioural psychology and as such is recognized by the British Psychology Society. Where NLP diverges from traditional psychology is in perspective: NLP is a set of practical methods that work around how someone creates their issue or problem and psychology is interested in the why. In NLP, once we know the how, we can work on how to undo the issue or problem.
- Isn’t it manipulative?!
Of course, in the same hands that are manipulative nay way. And often, we’re sold on ideas and dreams without NLP! You’ll find that advertisers use aspects of NLP and so do politicians, great orators and people who buy and sell. Perhaps you use it yourself without knowing! Do you ever feel that you’ve known a stranger longer than a few minutes? Can you put people at ease, without really trying? Do you visualise events so that you feel more prepared? Have you ever rationalised someone else’s experiences, when they appear alien to you? Do you rely on your internal self-chatter or is it an annoyance at times? Do you consider the wider consequences of your actions? All of these are part of NLP!
- It might work for others, would it work for me?
In a word, yes! All you need is an open mind and a healthy scepticism is welcomed too! Perhaps you’d like to see some testimonials? https://www.traceycolenlp.com/testimonials/
