Personal Coaching with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
with Neil Garland

Have you ever wished that you could:

• Raise your self-esteem and your confidence?
• Discover your strengths, goals and values?
• See what steps you need to take to move forward?
• Break away from old habits and behaviours?
• Feel happier, less stressed and more balanced?
• Break free to start living the life that you deserve?

Through personal Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) coaching, Neil Garland will introduce you to the powerful tools and techniques of NLP, Creating Your Future™ Coaching processes, Time Line work and Hypnosis – all to help you make the breakthroughs you need in order to make your goals a reality.

What is NLP?

Dr Richard Bandler, co-creator of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), describes it as the study of the structure of subjective experience; as an attitude of curiosity, a methodology that leaves behind it a trail of techniques.

NLP originated as a study of unusually talented people, so that their talents, skills, strategies and behaviours could be quickly taught to others. Its methods enable us not only to learn how people do things well, but also how people get into things like bad habits and phobias. By knowing how we do it, using NLP we are able to change what we do. It is like working out the recipe for a cake and once we know the recipe we can repeat it, improve upon it or ruin it. The choice is ours.

With NLP we are able to work with peoples' representation systems (what one sees, hears, says, feels, smells and tastes), their strategies, their programmes of behaviour and their beliefs, values and rules – most of which operate at the unconscious level. We can help people to recondition, re-educate and re-programme themselves so that new behaviours happen automatically.

What is Time Line work?

Have you ever wondered how your mind knows if a memory is from the recent past or the distant past? Your mind has to somehow codify memories so it can differentiate between different dates and times. Although we have been using concepts of time and timelines for centuries, it wasn’t until quite recently that we discovered that people actually map out time in their mind’s eye.

We all carry around a Timeline from which we access memories and resources and put new ones onto it.

Working with time lines is a simple, fast and straightforward way that allows you to let go of all your counterproductive 'emotional baggage', including negative emotions and limiting decisions from your past. It also allows you to create the life that you wish to have in the future.

How will NLP and Time Line techniques benefit me?

Through using these techniques, your personal happiness and professional success will become much more consistent, and much more predictable. Your effectiveness in working with others will increase dramatically, along with your ability to empower yourself for optimum results. You will be able to generate empowering emotional states within yourself at will, clear out any negative emotions, identify and change self-limiting beliefs, remove bad habits and unwanted behaviours, inspire yourself with a compelling future that will have much better chances of coming true, and create patterns of excellence from any role model you choose.
