Create a sense of internal safety

  The base of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is made up of what he considers our human basic needs; the physiology needs like water, food, warmth and rest and our security needs. Without these basic needs being met, there will be a sense of disorder in our lives. We may have our physiology needs met – but if innately we do not feel safe, we can never be truly free to express ourselves, be vulnerable, be loved or as Maslow puts it, attain self-actualisation. So, I pose a simple question for you that may or may not have simple ramifications. Are you safe? When we meet people who have fears, phobias, anxiety, worry, depression, self-doubt, or a need for control we often find a deep-rooted lack of safety. Even when the person is physically safe in their present moment, the unconscious mind is working overtime to protect, secure and keep the person safe. This safety mechanism occurs in many ways. The most common are excess physical weight, anxiety, fears and hypervigilance when no vigilance is needed. Parents who are overprotective are often missing internal safety themselves. Unfortunately, our children are continually learning from us, so not while we may be keeping our children safe we are teaching them to be overprotective of themselves and others. Ultimately, we cultivate the cycle to be stronger and repeated over time. If safety...

Get out of your head and come back to your senses

Until you are about 4-5 years old you have very few filters; in fact the Imprint Stage where we are absorbing information spans from 0-7 years. However, those years between 0 to 4-5 years are spent mostly engrossed in our senses. We get to play, imagine, make up songs, pretend for hours and generally get swept up in the moment without much thought. Can you remember that? Getting swept up in the moment without much thought? What a wonderful place that would be. Somewhere around 4 or 5, when a child starts school – we move from being in our senses to being in our head. We are then taught to think and pay attention and be aware. Slowly, our sensory play ends in some way and at some level. Now, some adults still have the ability to play and get lost in the moment; but most get lost in their head. Thinking or being focused internally is a learned behaviour. And it is a behaviour that we needed to learn. After all, thinking and analysing helps us to move forward in life, get things done, choose appropriately and be an adult.  However, overthinking, over analysing, over-processing can create interferences and issues. Being in your head too much – can create patterns of perfection, a need for certainty, a sense of mindless superiority, procrastination, fear of failure – and...

Remove Feelings of Helplessness and Hopelessness

Often patterns of depression or worthlessness include feelings of being helpless and hopeless; definitely not useful, resourceful or particularly nice feelings to have.  A great thing we know from NLP – you haven’t always felt this way. When we meet a person who is feeling helpless or hopeless, not only do we want to know if there are any internal or external factors that have created these feelings so we can alleviate or remove these factors; we also want to know when have you felt good? Your unconscious mind stores the blueprints of the perfect you in body, mind and spirit. It also is the storehouse for every single memory that you have ever, ever, ever had – and with those memories go emotions that create a cellular connection to chemicals, hormones and positive reactions. Therefore, using NLP you can tap back into and restore neurological connections of your desired state – if that is happiness, freedom, peace or simply feeling at ease. Feelings like hopelessness and helplessness are not ones that you have to live with. NLP will help you to reconnect with more resourceful and positive emotions and also will help you to clear, change and reassess any past experiences that have created these feelings to surface in the first...

Be a Better Sales Person

Are you a good listener, are you conscientious, persistent, coachable, respectful, positive, passionate, resilient, personable and fairly independent? If so – you will be a great salesperson. According to, these are the top qualities of an exceptional salesperson. With these traits in abundance, you will be a sales machine – with personal qualities that make you likeable, approachable and knowledgeable! If you want to further develop your sales abilities, then NLP will help you with that. One thing NLP is known for is modelling excellence. When you know the makeup of an exceptional salesperson, you can use your NLP skills to access or create, amplify and enhance these qualities within yourself. Not only that, NLP will teach you skills to quickly build rapport with anyone, ask questions to truly identify needs, objections and desires, tools to identify a persons’ buying strategy and even influential language that will speak more directly to your customer or potential customers unconscious mind and needs. One thing that NLP cannot to – NLP cannot make someone buy something they don’t want or need. So, it isn’t a manipulation tool or hypnotic sales process. If someone doesn’t want to buy something in general, or from you specifically then they won’t. However, if a person is looking for or contemplating a purchase of what your product or service is, by using your NLP skills within...

Improve Customer Service Skills

  We’re sure you’ve heard the phrase “the customer is always right”, but is that really true? Of course not! But – from an NLP angle, the way the customer sees something is right, for them. When an event happens, we filter this information through a set of filters which include your beliefs, values, history, expectations, memories, etc., then your mind automatically fits what has just happened in to your own model of the world by distorting, deleting and generalising information; this is how each of us has our own opinions, thoughts and ideas about the same thing. NLP will help you to improve your customer service skills, not by making the customers notions right all of the time, but making how they see something as right. If a customer, for example, is unhappy with something – you will be able to get more specific about what it is, how they have come to that conclusion and what needs to happen to fix the situation – therefore, you have more skills to create a happy customer. Customer Service isn’t only something that happens when a customer is upset – it is simply a way of treating our clients. Each client has their own needs, values, expectations and desires – through sensory acuity and observation skills, questioning techniques and filtering tools you will be better able to understand what your...
