NEURO LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) provides ways in which you can change the way you think, view past events and approach life in a more positive way.

NLP helps with communication and with personal development.  It is said that there is a connection between neurological process, language, behaviour patterns all learned through experiences which can be changed to achieve specific goals in life.

NLP looks at the present state and desired state, and how it will look when you get there both in personal and professional life, including relationships too.

It will influence brain behaviour through the use of language and has been described as a manual for the brain.  The core belief of NLP is that people do not react to their environment as it is, but instead build their perception from experiences as they relate to the world around them.  Each person experiences different life events and subsequently have different reactions to these events.  Everyone's life journey is unique.

NLP allows each person to view the steps they have taken which have led them to where they are today and to examine the negative and positive influences, behaviours and choices that have brought them there.  It will examine the areas of success and uses these as a springboard for all areas they would like to develop.

NLP can upgrade your mindset, intelligence, memory, senses and communication skills.  

 

Benefits include:

 

  • the ability to enhance any aspect of life and can help improve communication, change behaviours / thinking / beliefs 

  • can help with anxiety / depression / stress / phobias / fears / trauma and resolve inner conflict

Reiki

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui.  It involves the use of "palm healing" or "hands-on healing" both of which allow a universal energy to transfer from the hands of the practitioner to the patient.

Reiki is a holistic therapy helping the progression of physical, spiritual and mental well-being.  It is a healing therapy and is carried out by the placing of hands over the body using energy.  This energy is then directed to any area of the body that welcomes its support for natural capacity of self healing and balance. The "Life Force Energy" will flow towards the most needed areas.

When having Reiki treatment, it has been said to feel like a light that awakens us to our original state of awareness.  Each person will have a different experience when receiving Reiki treatment.  Often, people will feel sensations including a feeling of heat, warmth, tingling and sometimes seeing colours along with a sense of peace and relaxation.  Others can have a physical or emotional reaction, all of which is an indication that the body is being restored through the healing process.

Reiki treatment can also be used to remedy common issues, including:

  • Relaxation

  • Depression

  • Anxiety/Stress

  • Digestive Disorders

  • Pain

  • Insomnia

  • Migraines

Havening Techniques ®

The Havening Techniques ® is science based and is designed to aim to treat depression & anxiety symptoms that are a consequence due to a traumatic encoding of negative events, which have been encoded into the brain.

 

How it works

There are different techniques used, depending on if the person they are being carried out on remembers the event, or is unsure. Sometimes a memory is "triggered" by something that reminds us of the event in our conscious or unconscious mind. The brain then sends signals that we could be in danger, therefore puts us into the ‘fight or flight’ mode, which can cause anxiety related symptoms. Then sensory input is applied (a simple touch of the face, shoulder, and palms), helping generate brain waves called "delta waves" which helps put you into a calming state. The touch can be applied by the practitioner or client. Distraction techniques, including visualisation, are then used, to take the mind away from the trauma which was activated.

The idea that by applying these techniques, then revisiting the memory of the trauma which was activated (in the part of the brain called the amygdala), the emotion will be less and the memory not as clear. Scaling of numbers will be done throughout, (the number that associates with the emotion that is felt), so to gauge how much emotion is left.

Other types of Havening can be combined also or used on their own.  If a client feels depressed or has low moods and they’re not sure why, there are lots of Havening Techniques ® that can be used, and also combined.

 

The client can also use the technique of "Self Havening" which they can apply on themselves, this is useful to use daily to enhance your state of being.  It involves applying the Havening touch to yourself, whilst saying affirmations (things you are thankful for in your life, grateful for). It is also good for resilience building.

 

Success stories

I have had some great results using these techniques. Someone came to me who worked in a nursery school, and often had to take the children into the garden, she was petrified of spiders, which made her suffer anxiety every time she was was asked to take them outside.

 

We worked on this, after finding a childhood memory of a situation she was in, where there was a spider. The spider was a "trigger" which made her remember a time she was on holiday, she was in the shower and there was a spider. It was also on that trip that her parents had told her they were parting, so the spider wasn’t the issue, but in her memory it was part of the encoded event.  Once we worked on the trauma of her parents separating, her spider phobia disappeared!

I have also worked with a client on her fear of flying.  After the sessions, she said she hadn’t been able to see some of her family overseas for years but was now looking forward to visiting them by plane.

What the Havening Techniques ® aim to help

 

These techniques aim to alter thought mood & behaviour, and to help build resilience for future challenges in your life.

 

Listed are some issues that can be worked on with Havening:

  • Depression

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Bereavement

  • Fears/phobias
