Today’s life style is very hectic and for most of us, finding time to do something out of daily routine is hard if not impossible. I get to hear ‘Not enough hours in the day’ a lot, from my clients. Generally we keep weekends to catch up on things which were ignored during the week or didn’t have priority during the week.
So based on our hectic life, we want or like quick solutions. Some of the issues can be resolved with only one NLP and/or hypnosis session where as other issues could take more sessions to resolve the issue instead of months/years of medication or other therapies. One session to resolve a certain issue does surprise some of my clients.
So is NLP and hypnosis a magic cure?
There is mystery in NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) and hypnosis but no magic. These therapies and techniques are designed to help clients identify, understand and apply new skills and tools to resolve their issues. In regards to the question, there is no such thing as magic cure. I say this because when a therapist is working with the client, the client is working hard looking at her/his issue, applying given suggestions/ideas and resolving their issue(s). Yes NLP and/or hypnosis session provides a quicker solution than conventional methods but that is because of the approach we use towards the issues.
So does this means that NLP and hypnosis is the easy way out?
The answer is no. After the session, the client feels good, assertive and motivated towards themselves and resolution of their issues, in most cases, they are given tasks to do to make those changes permanent or part of their subconscious behaviour/habit/thinking pattern, i.e. for weight loss, the therapist will record the session and might ask the client to listen to the session at least ones a day or practise trigger activation on conscious level. Same with smoking cessation, anger management, pain management etc.
