WHAT IS NLP EXACTLY?
There is no official definition of NLP. NLP is essentially a toolbox. The models, techniques and strategies of NLP help us understand how the language we use influences the way we think and the results we get. NLP techniques are used in a wide variety of fields such as counseling, sports, business, law, education, and sales. The techniques were developed from studying how top people in different fields obtained outstanding results. NLP techniques are models of excellence. There are many models of excellence within the NLP toolbox.
NLP tools are practical. NLP is a set of models, skills, and techniques for thinking and acting effectively in the world.
The purpose of NLP is to be useful, to increase choice, and to enhance the quality of life. It encourages new thinking, new choices and acknowledges the positive intentions behind all behavior.

I use NLP to help you understand your own mind and how you think and why you behave the way you do. I help you learn to manage moods and emotions and reprogram the way you process information so that it leads to more success. Working with NLP techniques requires that you be curious and willing to experiment.
If you have a desire to change and are willing to learn new ways of being, with yourself, your thoughts and with others; then change is possible. Our thinking patterns affect every aspect of our lives. I habitually incorporate NLP techniques with techniques and strategies of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). They work serendipitously together. I also frequently combine hypnosis with the CBT and NLP techniques to achieve faster and long-lasting results.
