Since NLP was first created in the early 1970’s, there has been on and off speculation as to the techniques provided in relation to one’s control over another person’s mind, as well as their own. Some critics have gone as far to call this Therapeutic Modality ‘manipulative’. What we have come to discover at NLP Training 4 Kids is that the NLP techniques taught and presented are already being performed by every individual around us, what is apparent is the lack of awareness brought to these actions.
(The history and reasoning behind the examples below will be explained in further detail throughout our Trainings).
For example; a parent who tells their child to ‘Not do that’ or ‘Don’t eat that’ is inadvertently suggesting that they do what it is they are telling the child to not do. When a person is told ‘not‘ to think of something (an object, person, piece of music etc.) they automatically have to think about the subject before un-thinking about it. These are all examples of ‘negative suggestions‘ which when plugged in or stated enough times, the mind will inevitably follow. What we teach at NLP Training 4 Kids is how to listen out for these negative suggestions and then reframe them into positive linguistic patterns which will enable your child accept and utilise all of the information presented to them in the positive and ecological way they know how.
Another example is ‘anchoring‘. When someone / a person is experiencing a negative emotion and abreacting (crying etc.), a large percentage of people have a tendency to comfort them with physical support i.e. rubbing their back, giving them a hug, holding their hand, etc. What the comforter is essentially doing is ‘anchoring‘ this negative emotion into the neurology and physiology of the individual. This anchor then stays within the mind/body and will be ‘fired off’ at a later date without the individual realising what has happened. They may then wonder how it is that they are suddenly feeling sad, anxious, or depressed simply through someone patting them on the shoulder!
Therefore there is never not a time that we are not doing NLP whether we realise it or not! The difference being that when someone who has not been trained in the art of effective communication is influencing another person through their language, they are completely unaware of the consequences.
As mentioned above ‘The words we use are profoundly powerful, their potential to move energy by perception is profound.‘ – ©David Behan.
With this in mind at NLP Training 4 Kids we believe that: ‘One’s ability to be positively influenced by someone (a practitioner) who knows exactly what they are doing far more excellently outweighs that of the person who would not choose to use these unlimited, and highly effective techniques to facilitate constructive change.’
