Whats is NLP Coaching? How does it compare to other techniques? Got a question? Here is the answer
What is Time Line Therapy™?
Since the introduction of the Line Therapy® Techniques in 1988 in the book Time Line Therapy and the Basis of Personality, there has been, not only excitement about the techniques themselves, but also major interest by the psychotherapeutic community and a rather rapid adoption of the process by people actively involved in seeing clients daily for various reasons. In the last few years, it has become obvious that an individual's Time Line with all the person's history -- his joys and fears, his happiness and sorrow, his loves and hates, his limiting and empowering decisions -- is a major part of that person's personality. Over the last few years, we found that, if we were able to intervene in a client's Time Line therapeutically, we were able to assist the client to create seemingly miraculous changes in his life -- changes that extended even to the deepest level of personality.

What is the difference between NLP COACHING &. TRADITIONAL CONSULTING?
In NLP Coaching the Coach is going to work the Client to discover and utilize his most productive strategies, values, and other modalities already at his disposal but which he is not utilizing to the most for his benefit. The focus is on the Client in achieving his coaching goals and objectives.
What is the difference between NLP COACHING &. TRADITIONAL FORMS OF TRAINING?
NLP Coaching trainings are designed to teach people how to become NLP coaches. Rather than teaching the students only how to perform something the emphasis in these trainings is how to discover and get in charge of the mental processes occurring naturally inside every individual. By learning how people think I.E. 5MD's strategies, etc, the student/Coach improves as a person. There is no better improvement than to have control over one's internal processes. So, in fact the student has maximum control over process and outcome. In NLP Coaching trainings, of course, everything is held confidential.
What is NLP?
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay effects our body and behavior (programming). NLP is a pragmatic school of thought - an 'epistemology' - that addresses the many levels involved in being human. NLP is a multi-dimensional process that involves the development of behavioral competence and flexibility, but also involves strategic thinking and an understanding of the mental and cognitive processes behind behavior. NLP provides tools and skills for the development of states of individual excellence, but it also establishes a system of empowering beliefs and presuppositions about what human beings are, what communication is and what the process of change is all about. At another level, NLP is about self-discovery, exploring identity and mission. It also provides a framework for understanding and relating to the 'spiritual' part of human experience that reaches beyond us as individuals to our family, community and global systems. NLP is not only about competence and excellence, it is about wisdom and vision.
What is Hypnosis?
A relaxed, focused state of concentration. That is the definition. But the actual state of hypnosis is a little harder to define. Until recently it was assumed that it was similar to sleep, or that the mind was somehow unconscious. In reality, there is a specific state that the brain enters into when it is receptive to suggestion. This has been discovered on scans during hypnosis. It is not an unusual state of mind, and may feel like you are not in a trance, or in hypnosis. For most people they simply feel relaxed. There is a change in the brain wave activity, similar to that time just before sleep when the alpha state is entered. Your brain's waking state is a beta brain wave, just as you are going to sleep it changes to alpha and then to delta and theta in deep sleep. The alpha state is a very dreamy, pleasant state. During this time the mind is very open to visualizations and creating a rich sensory experience. The more real the experience becomes in the subconscious mind during this state, the more effect it will have on your waking behavior.
Is Hypnosis dangerous?
Hypnosis is a normal state of mind, one which most people go in and out of every day. When you are watching a movie that you are engrossed in, driving down a long monotonous road, listening to music that captures a mood or engrosses you, you are in hypnosis. We experience hypnosis every day and don't even know it. When you are in a guided hypnotic trance session, or driving down the road in trance, you have an observer self, which is an actual part of you that is always aware and watching out for you. This observer self has been documented as a credible aspect of our mind, that keeps us safe, even when asleep. During hypnosis you can trust that your observer self will watch over you. This is not a guide or spiritual being, is a scientific discovery of a function of our brain. During a hypnosis session you would instantly get up and leave the room if it caught on fire, even if had previously felt like your arms and leg were too heavy to move. In fact, since hypnosis can help make us sharper and more aware mentally, it actually may help keep us safer, by making us more aware of our surroundings during the day. If your perception of what is happening around you is better, you will notice things that are happening with greater clarity and perhaps make better decisions.
Can Hypnosis make me tell secrets?
Not at all. You will not divulge any information that you would not ordinarily divulge. You always have a choice, and your brain did not stop functioning or reasoning. However, you may find that you discover some inner truths about yourself, or your situation, or some self sabotage, that you did not know about consciously. What this means is that your subconscious mind may have some inner programming going on that you do not know about that causes you to keep making the same mistakes, get sick, get angry, have rotten luck, or ignore important clues about your success or failure. The really good news is that when you uncover these inner truths that have been kept secret from your subconscious mind, your mind can no longer play that game. When the unconscious strategy is revealed, the gig is up. Your inner mind must now do it differently. The program only worked when it was in stealth mode. Here is an example. I had a pain in my back, between my shoulder blades
What is the difference between NLP COACHING& CAREER COUNSELING?
NLP Coaching assists the Client to determine his values, Meta programs, strategies, positive and supportive decisions and belief structures, and future goals and outcomes. In this way the Coach helps the Client to move into the position, job or career best suited for his present and future. If the Client's goal is to become an entrepreneur, business owner or independent contractor, NLP Coaching supports him in this development. If the Client's goal is to simply achieve new objectives in his present career, NLP Coaching supports uncritically this outcome.
What is the difference between NLP COACHING & EDUCATORS?
Most education is concerned about teaching conscious concepts to conscious minds. As we learned in the CYF segment of our coaching training, the most behavioural change occurs with the involvement and cooperation of the Unconscious Mind. Therefore the NLP Coach knows that he has to teach the Conscious Mind and the Unconscious Mind and appeal to both for the process of change to occur. According to a team led by Professor Gerard Hodgkinson of the Centre for Organizational Strategy, Learning and Change at Leeds University Business School, "[...] Humans clearly need both conscious and non-conscious thought processes, but it's likely that neither is intrinsically 'better' than the other" [...]
What is the difference between NLP COACHING & MENTORS?
In NLP Coaching we don't actually offer advice as to what to do - we Coach the Client HOW to utilize his own capabilities and already present strategies, values, etc. By discovering, and understanding the Client's intrinsic abilities, the Coach can assist in maximizing those abilities and so, to make possible for the Client to take the actions necessary to achieve his desired results. NLP Coaching concentrates on the Client implementing the best strategies to achieve the desired goals and objectives.
What is the difference between NLP COACHING & CAREER COUNSELLING?
Career coaches assist their clients to discover their ideal income position or career. With their ideal career, clients will be able to "Go to Play" every day because they are doing what they love and excel at. Career coaches then assist their clients to get their ideal position or career, which may include becoming a business owner, an independent contractor, or an employee. Career coaches are totally loyal to their clients, and form a strong confidential bond.
What is the difference between NLP COACHING & SELF-HELP?
In the NLP Coaching we realize that we can probably arrive at the same goals and outcomes with or without a Coach but the process would be more tedious and more difficult because we're like the fish in water unable to describe our environment. Many times we can't traverse our own logical thinking and we need to bounce our ideas by somebody else like an NLP Coach. NLP Coaching gives you the perspective of a Coach trained in process (not in content), who can then discover where the process is going wrong and thus Coach you to correct it. The feedback is essential in correcting mistakes and improving overall results.
What is the difference between NLP COACHING & TRADITIONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY?
The first thing that surprised the Client in NLP Coaching is that we don't spend a lot of time wallowing about "the problem". We focus in discovering the structure of what prevents the Client from achieving his goals and changing the structure to make the goals achievable. NLP Coaching does not focus on the Client's life but on his future goals and objectives and the overall development and growth of the individual during the process of achieving those objectives.
