You can't effect the cards that you are dealt, but you can determine how you play them."
NEURO LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING
NLP is extremely useful when treating clients as it helps me and my clients understand how they came to think and behave the way they do. We all process information differently through our five senses and we tend to use one sense more than the others. The meanings we give to our experiences will be unique to us and we each use our own language patterns to describe them.
I use this understanding of the way my clients process information to treat them within their model of the world. It allows me to choose appropriate techniques to help them manage situations, reach their goals quickly and create long term solutions. Many techniques I use come from NLP and I teach these to my clients so that they can take control of their own lives in the future.
