For a while I had been toying with the idea of opening up conversations around a love of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and decided to put out some stuff on audio which might interest people who find the listening experience enjoyable. Podcasting seemed a good option and as the idea took shape, I was fortunate enough to be joined in conversation by some fabulous colleagues.
Just to expand a little about NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). It was devised back in the 1970’s by John Grinder a professor of linguistics and Richard Bandler a psychologist. What emerged from their brilliant collaboration was how we can change our thinking to influence our actions and get results we want. One of Richard Bandler’s students was the celebrity, Paul McKenna who has gone on to brilliant success in his work with NLP.
NLP is a massive topic and by getting it into everyday context it can bring huge benefits to anyone who feels they are becoming stuck in life, experiencing loss or just not getting to where they want to be. There are lots of different options of help out there and it can all get very confusing. The conversations we have around some of the ‘mind health’ stuff may offer insight into which may be the most beneficial at the time.
One of the questions which comes up from time to time is “What is the difference between coaching and counselling?” This got me thinking that the best way to answer, was to talk with someone who has extensive knowledge of counselling. A lot of my clients who choose NLP life coaching have had some experience of counselling. It was interesting to explore a bit more into whether one naturally leads on to another, or maybe that the two methods are completely different in their intended use and outcomes.
On these podcasts we discuss counselling, coaching, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, behaviour, habits and so much more. Family dynamics in childhood play a big part in our lives and one guest was very generous with his slant on growing up in a large family.
