So, I will mind read and say that you must be curious to know how those few, select individuals in the world can be so much more successful at what they do than the many? Success is of course a label, it means something different to each one of us, whether achieved by playing a game of chess, achieving a swimming medal, or being the CEO of a major corporation, success is measured by the individual on how well they have done. Success in one particular subject may be of high favor to one, while another might prefer something completely different. This is where the studies of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, NLP and Hypnotherapy come into play.

NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is a study of how we structure our thinking, our language, our programming, respond  to the world around us, and experience every situation we encounter, as well as how we communicate what we know to others and indeed ourselves. NLP creates and uses models of success from many of the most successful minds and geniuses in the world.  It has allowed us to “map out” how the few think, act and communicate while comparing and contrasting it to the many. By doing so, methods and techniques have been developed to change the thinking process as well as the behaviors of those who practice.

For example,

let’s say that you have an underlying phobia of spiders and you have no idea where it came from. For as long as you can remember, the mere thought of a spider makes you cringe, or maybe even scream. Why, then, is it that there are those few individuals who have a pet tarantula that they take out of its tank and play with on a daily basis? This is how the models are created, by getting deep into the unconscious (or subconcious) minds of those select few and finding out how their mind works regarding spiders so that the many with the phobia can be helped.

NLP allows us to ‘try on’ a number of “presuppositions“. Much like affirmations, they are simple, positive reinforcements that focus on the basics of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, such as communication and the thinking process. “There is no such thing as failure-only feedback” is one such useful presupposition.  Believing in failure can be damaging, rather than learning from the feedback of projects that don’t work out.  If we take the feedback, we know what not to do next time round.

Another presupposition of NLP is that all humans have within them the power to heal and avoid, or combat sickness and disease. NLP allows us to tap into this portion of our unconscious minds – the part of our mind that takes care of us and looks after functions such as breathing, movement etc.  Imagine how difficult it would be to consciously breathe all day and all night whilst trying to do everything else that we do.

Hypnotherapy also allows us to access our unconscious minds and is exceptionally useful for helping us to stop smoking, get over a traumatic event, enable us to feel motivated or confident for example.  Modern day Hypnotherapy can be relayed through storytelling and/or symbolism to help you communicate with your unconscious mind, allowing different, powerful options to come and go freely. By tapping into your own imagination, you will be able to utilise your positive strengths to get past where you are, ending up where you want to be.


Both NLP and Hypnotherapy are yielding positive outcomes for many when they are used Separately, and even greater results when practiced concurrently
