Most of us have a conscious understanding that our past experiences and emotions have an effect on the way we think, act and behave, positively and negatively. If we are wanting to achieve more than what we have right now but find that we are self sabotaging, getting stuck in procrastination or overwhelm then it makes sense to get curious
about what in our past might be hindering us from being who we want to be, doing what we want to do and having what we want to have!

Firstly we need to understand how our minds process the human experience… at any one moment the world around us is feeling us 2 million + bits of information through our 5 senses, our conscious mind can only hold on & understand 134 bits of that information, so it needs to go through a process to decide what’s important and how to interpret what is happening. It does this through a process of deleting, distorting and generalizing, a filtering process of sorts. Our personal filters are influenced by what mood we are in and where we are, who we are with, our interpretation of words being used, old memories, experiences, our values, beliefs, attitudes and internal programming till we get an internal representation of what is happening. This then affects our state, behaviour and physiology. So this is why 2 people experiencing the same event can have 2 totally different recounts of what happened. As for the remaining 1.9 million + bits of information… well this is sent to the subconscious mind to be archived away…

So if, let’s say you watched a parent go through bankruptcy as a child and saw, heard and sensed all the emotional turmoil that went along with it and you are now wanting to start your own business but you can’t seem to make it happen, then it could well be your filters and amygdala triggering a response to keep you safe from perceived danger.

Thankfully the tools and techniques used in Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Matrix Therapy allows you to effectively goal set, find the route causes of your current situation and through a safe and gentle process allow you to neutralize the effect of past events / limiting beliefs / negative influences etc. Hypnosis and Self Hypnosis then cements all of the new learnings allowing for new neural pathways to be formed in the brain to create new resourceful thoughts and behaviours and allow you to pull out and strengthen your unique abilities so you can step up as the best version of yourself possible in authentic alignment.

The Presuppositions of Neuro-Linguistic Programming are incredibly supportive to the client. We as practitioners understand that;
• No one is “broken”
• We are all doing the best we can with the experience, knowledge and resources we have available to us
• We are not our behaviour
• We are so much more than we think we are
• We have all the resources we need to be, do and have all the things we desire
• There is no failure, only learnings and feedback

Do you find yourself coming up short when it comes to getting what you want in life?
