NLP [Neuro-Linguistic Programming]
The use of NLP involves creative, person-centred and intricate choices of language, used to help create future vision as well as aspiration for you. It focuses on the use of highly positive (as well as figurative) language, that is imposed upon the previous, damaging thoughts held.
This is one of the techniques used within hypnosis to explore childhood influences on your current thought processes.
Supplementary techniques [Psychotherapy/CBT/DBT] - are marginally drawn on to support the KEY SKILLS of Hypnotherapy. They provide positive forward-thinking based tools for the client to support themselves between and after sessions.
Both techniques focus on the individual's thought processes; how issues are dealt with and promote a positive, long-term outlook for handling challenging situations in life.
Milton H. Erickson (psychologist & psychiatrist) known in this field as 'The Father of Hypnotherapy' believed in this innovative and ground-breaking approach to connect with his client's subconscious.
