NEURO LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING
I often get asked: What is NLP?
For me it is a collection of methods that we can use to change the way we think and act, in order to have better connection with our actions, values and goals. We can free ourselves from habits that we might have copied unconsciously, and replace them with ones that are more harmonious with our present state.
With NLP we are able to recognize different ways of communication, understand each other better and learn to broaden our social skills. At the same time we can shape our own messages to be more understandable.
One essential theme in NLP is our contact to our personal unconscious wisdom, instincts and intuition.
There is huge amount of “tools” and exercises that are collected from experts and masters of various professions most skilled persons, methods that they have been using with great results in practise. They have been shaped into straightforward learnable packages, so that anyone interested can try them and modify them further for their own needs. Theoretical structures are smoothly connected with practice.

Most of us have strong limiting beliefs of our talents and capacity.
We have built a self-image at very early age from the feedback that we’ve received from people around us, no matter how neutral or adequate they have been.
To be seen an accepted as we are; these are our very basic needs. Sometimes we make choices against our inner intelligence, prioring to avoid conflicts with others. If this is done repeatedly, it may lead to high stress levels and anxiety. It may also be very complicated to connect the reasons and results with each other.
With NLP methods we are able to return to past situations and change our present reactions to them. We can update and synchronize our reactions to our history with our present capacity. We can free ourselves even from burdens that may be completely forgotten from our concious memory.
We can also strengthen our hidden abilities and talents, let go of unnecessary fears and see truly positive meanings in negatively experienced feelings and situations.
For myself it is essential to create lot of space for own insights, to give time and safe surroundings for current topics to start blossom. Each one of us is the best authority of our own lives. Our bodies and minds are exceptionally wise and capable to send us messages: what is most needed right now? We just need to listen and learn to decode these messages correctly. And we do need to ask for help, when in need.
It is also very important to learn to recognize the persons that are trustworthy.
In personal coaching, mentoring, redirecting and fellow travelling my aim is to help in:
