What is N.L.P? 

N.L.P is short for Neuro Linguistic Programming (“neuro”) meaning brain, (“linguistic”) meaning language and (“programming”) meaning the behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience.

N.L.P was first developed in the 1970’s in California, USA by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Their premise was to model people who were top of their field and find out how achieved amazing results. Bandler and Grinder modeled people like Virginia Satir who was a famous family therapist, Milton Erickson who was a hypnotherapist and Fritz Perls the founder of Gestalt therapy. This method of modelling was then applied to education, sales and business and has been re-branded under many names.

Today, N.L.P when used in the field of coaching or therapeutically, is a series of processes and/or techniques that facilitate change. It is exciting, with the new field of neuroscience that these N.L.P processes are being backed up with research and data as scientists gain an understanding of how the brain works.

How does N.L.P work?

N.L.P is often referred to as a talking therapy. When used in the field of coaching or therapeutically,it is a series of processes and/or techniques that facilitate change. Sessions may include visualisation techniques, questioning beliefs and thoughts, mindfulness, and coaching models that come from a range of sources. These processes use our natural ability to let go of the old, limiting behaviours and patterns and create new more resourceful ones.

By introducing new ways of thinking, new neurological pathways are created in the brain. So you actually think differently and this in turn changes how we “feel” which together opens up new creative possibilities. Positive change often happens instantaneously, so checks are built into a session so that the client can evaluate the shifts that occur.

Lynley likes to send her clients away with resources and techniques that they can use themselves in their day to day lives

What is a Practicing Member of N.L.P?

A Practicing Member will have had N.L.P training that meets N.Z.A.N.L.P standards.

A Practicing Members will therefore:

  • Be a Master Practitioner trained and certified by an N.Z.A.N.L.P Approved trainer, or
  • Will have had their course(s) assessed by NZ.A.N.L.P to confirm that they meet N.Z.A.N.L.P standards, or 
  • Will have completed the N.Z.A.N.L.P Accreditation .Process and been approved for membership as a Practicing Member

This membership is open for those individuals who are using N.LP skills in their work (coaching, therapy, consulting, training, counseling, bodywork, business etc), and who want to be recognized as practicing N.L.P professionally. A Practicing Member maintains their professional skills and competencies through ongoing practice, supervision and professional development.

What is the first session like?

The first session is a chance for us to get to know each other, set goals and outcomes for other sessions and for you to get an understanding of how N.L.P works.
You will be asked to complete a Client Information Form which you will fill out in the first session. Often it is quite scary to take that first step in making an appointment so I am willing to have a chat prior to the first session, to allow you to ask any questions you may have, and assuage any fears.

Will you keep my details confidential?

I will always explain on the first session about confidentiality. I will honour a client’s privacy and will never share your details with a third party without your express permission.

What is mbraining or mbit coaching?

Mbraining is a new and exciting method of coaching. Science has recently discovered that both the heart and the gut have neurons which means that we actually have at least 3 brains. Sometimes one brain will overpower or do the job another brain and we operate best when all three brains are aligned.Lynley offers processes to help with this alignment.
