Why Neuro Linguistic Programming?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was originally created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the mid 1970’s. They developed a set of techniques by studying very successful therapists, Milton Erickson and Virginia Satir, and incorporated the ideas of Fritz Pearls and Gregory Bateson to create models (or patterns) to help people to make incredible shifts in their life. NLP encompasses both a philosophy and cognitive behavioral psychology approach to change.

How will NLP help me?

NLP is a way of exploring how people think, identifying success and then applying these successful actions or beliefs in ways which work for the individual. NLP is widely utilised in management training, life coaching, and the self-help industry.

Different individuals represent their world in different sensory modalities – sight, sound, feeling/touch taste and smell. Their language and behaviour reveals their representation. Often communication difficulties are little more than two people speaking in incompatible representation system.

Catherine has completed a NLP Practitioner Certificate with the Australian Success Institute and includes NLP methods and practices in her Abundance Life Coaching work when she senses this mind therapy will help you.

Catherine states, “I have noticed a distinct difference in an individual’s disposition and behaviour when they choose to change behaviour patterns for their better wellbeing.
