The next couple of weeks will be very exciting for me as I’m upskilling my coaching credentials. I am attending training for Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Matrix Therapies.
What this means is I’ll have even more tools, skills and techniques to help unlock client’s potential and break away from habits that no longer serve.
Among many other things, these skills will heighten my ability to help people quit smoking and remove their dependency on sugar in only a handful of sessions. This is just the tip of the iceberg however.
NLP was founded in the 1970’s when Richard Bandler and John Grinder first modelled other therapists. It can be likened to the “user’s manual for your mind” and studying NLP provides insights into how our thinking patterns can affect every facet of our lives.
NLP goes in depth to explore: how we think and process our thoughts (Neuro); the language patterns we use (Linguistic); our behaviours (Programming); and how these interact to have a positive (or negative) effect on us as individuals.
The co-creators defined NLP as:
“NLP is an attitude which is an insatiable curiosity about human beings with a methodology that leaves behind it a trail of techniques.” Richard Bandler (co-creator of NLP)
“The strategies, tools and techniques of NLP represent an opportunity unlike any other for the exploration of human functioning, or more precisely, that rare and valuable subset of human functioning known as genius.” John Grinder (co-creator of NLP)
Pip McKay initially created Matrix Therapies® in 2001 because she felt that the techniques she had available to her at that time were not effective in healing grief. After creating the Matrix Therapies Grief Script she began to see that the same principals could be effective in clearing old programming from parents and other negative influences. Now Matrix Therapies® has a range of techniques that clear negative emotions and beliefs, assist in dream analysis and use Archetypes to help access internal resources that people may not realise they have available to them.
Matrix Therapies® is a set of profound personal development and coaching tools that allow you to transform even the most stubborn and difficult problems, while getting measurable results within a specific time frame.
I’m looking forward to unlocking these skills via my unrelenting, unattainable pursuit of perfection so I can provide exceptional value to all my clients.
Enjoy Life. Get Healthy. Excel.
