Hypnotherapy and NLP as a Career, a Therapist’s View
Using hypnosis and NLP for positive change is a powerful and effective way to help people develop more resourceful attitudes and behaviours. Helping people using these skills soon becomes more than a career but a meaningful occupation that can be developed in many ways. It can take someone who is frustrated with their job to someone who is enjoying living a life and having an occupation with real meaning.
Hypnotherapy helps access the unconscious and organise mental processes. It allows for deep level change. Using hypnotherapy can help get past negative attitudes, thoughts and behaviours. When our minds are in receptive and relaxed state we more readily absorb the positive suggestions that are being made and are able to draw meaning from the stories we are hearing and creating. Thoughts can be like unconscious habits that we fall into, some are good and productive others unfortunately can be negative and self-limiting. With hypnotherapy we can change those unconscious habits and and establish better patterns that give us the results we desire. It is a matter of learning. We can take on and absorb these new patterns and with repetition those new patterns become a positive new default process in the brain.
NLP is primarily derived from hypnotherapy. Although there are other linguistic influences in its application. It is essentially a hypnotic approach to change. Certain patterns of thought and their sensory representations can be altered to change our state of mind. Where in the past we had a particular response to stimulus, for example, a painful or difficult memory, we can learn to have a different response by the application of some of attitudes and skills inherent in Nuero-Lingustic-Progarmming approaches.
By learning to use the skills of Hypnotherapy and NLP in an integrated and thorough way it is possible to open up the possibility of change. We learn how to change the things we can change, learning to accept the things we cannot change while using our conscious and unconscious resources to enhance our lives and the lives of others.
It has been a real joy and calling for me to use hypnotherapy and NLP. It has enabled me to work across many fields and in many countries, from the clinical to the entertaining and motivational. Every time I am using these skills regardless of the situation and its demands I feel at home and relaxed yet interestingly challenged. An added benefit has been the transferable nature of these skills from therapy to business and in many situations and countries. It has allowed me to be a free agent doing something I love doing that brings benefits to me and others. I am very grateful.
