Personal & Organizational Transformation
The holistic process I use is experiential in nature with explorations, role play, body movement & awareness as a foundation. I teach individuals, couples, groups, and business leaders how to implement change and become more integrated, or Whole.
modeled by neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)
Understanding how the mind works makes changing your mindset possible. Therefore, NLP techniques are used in my practice. Neuro refers to your neurology; Linguistic refers to language (verbal and non-verbal); programming refers to how that neural language functions. In other words, learning NLP is learning the language of your own mind.
how & when NLP is used
NLP is the study of excellent communication–both with yourself, and with others. NLP is a set of tools and techniques to achieve desired outcomes; it's an attitude; a methodology to enhance performance; strategies to control emotional states. Learn to:
Change habits and behaviors; re-program old patterns and beliefs
Get motivated and stay motivated; engage your senses and feel energized
Eliminate limiting beliefs and decisions; access the resources you need to change
Release unwanted emotions and behaviors from the past; create new desired outcomes
Change mental habits to emulate those used by successful people
Add flexibility and effectiveness to professional and personal life; improve the quality of life choices.
NLP grew out of the systematic study of human behavior by John Grinder and Richard Bandler.
Bandler modeled the methods used by Virgina Satir (1916-1988), esteemed family therapist and the work of Fritz Perls, (1893–1970), who developed a form of psychotherapy that is known as gestalt therapy. Later, the work of the famous medical hypnotist Milton Erickson (1901–1980) was incorporated. Erickson’s techniques became a core part of NLP and are known as the “Milton Model.”
Gestalt is German word, meaning ‘whole’, ‘pattern’ or ‘form’. We trust in the process by engaging the body to elicit information, releasing stuck energy and accessing innate creativity to heal, to become whole. Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy, believed that humans are best viewed as a whole entity, consisting of body, mind, soul, and best understood when viewed through their own eyes in the present. In other words, by not looking back into the past but bringing the past into the present. That is the process to address and alleviate 'unfinished business' such as anger, pain, resentment and other less desired emotions that keeps us stuck.
What you will gain by applying techniques drawn from gestalt:
Obtain awareness of conscious and unconscious patterns; create a new story & take personal responsibility
Feel liberated and empowered; get unstuck & step into your own personal power
Build self-confidence and presence; stop explaining, excusing & complaining
Resolve inner conflicts; gain clarity & self-acceptance
Become more integrated and move towards the Gestalt idea of Wholeness
