NLP Communication Model

Our Brain Relies On Visual Memories.

Thanks to one of our NLP graduates, who has asked me a couple of questions about the human brain. Let me share with you a DVD titled “Brain Story” by BBC if you want to go in depth about how our brain works without taking a degree course in Biology or Neuro-science. Watch this for a start.

If your listen attentively to the narration, it describes the NLP Communication Model. In the video, it states that “our visual brain is a 2-way street”. In other words, whatever we perceived in our head not only comes from what we see but also what we expect to see (retrieving information from our stored memory). This is described in our NLP Communication Model where the IR (Internal Representation) of any event is created from what we visually see as well as our past memories (which is one of our filters that distort, delete and generalise).

Imagine if you have visual memories that are negative that generate fear, procrastination, anxiety, limiting beliefs, etc., then what you perceived will be negative. If you have visual memories that are positive that generates confidence, drive and empowerment, then what you perceived will be positive. Let me ask you this question – if you feel negativity in your life, does this help you to get the results that you want? Of course NOT. As such, to generate the success in wealth, relationship, personal development and health, you MUST know how to change your perception of the world such that you can change them. So how do you do that?

Motivation Strategy

Motivation Strategy

Want to know how to motivate yourself, motivate others, build rapport and influence others?

One of the secrets of success lies in understanding the sequence of thoughts of how you and other people think inside the mind before you or others act.

For example, ask yourself this question and think it through in a sequential manner. What are the sequence of events that have taken place before you purchase your watch, your shoe, your shirt/blouse? Was it something you see? Or something you hear? Or it’s just a feeling? Continue to ask these questions and you will realise that there is a sequence that has taken place before your make a decicion. Interesting, isn’t it?

Imagine the application that you can have to make yourself stay in a peak performance any time you want. Imagine a scenario that you can build rapport and influence other people positively in any way you want. Wouldn’t that be worthwhile and meaningful for you? For more information, you can read this article Basic Motivation Strategy.

Studies show that NLP skills can be learned by anyone to improve their effectiveness both personally and professionally.

NLP SINGAPORE – NLP Rapport

Posted by on Sep 22, 2009 in NLP Singapore, NLP Success & Life Tips, NLP Techniques | 0 comments

NLP Rapport

There are 2 KEY secrets to People Mastery – 1) Rapport & 2) Influence.

You can’t influence a person without rapport and one of the secrets to building rapport with anyone is to speak their lingo. And to speak their lingo, you would need to understand how they represent information inside their head. Eg.  If a person prefers to represent information in terms of pictures, you will use visual-related words or visually descriptive words. If a person prefers to represent information in terms of sound, you will use auditory-related words or auditory descriptive words.

To understand the how your client represent information, one way is to observe their eye accessing cues. For detail information about eye accessing cues or eye patterns, you can click on the article “Eye Movement and NLP” written by Robert Dilts.

We offer NLP Certification Program and NLP Master Practitioner Training

NLP Treatment Technique That Can Put Your Phobia In Its Place

Posted by on Aug 14, 2009 in NLP Singapore, NLP Success & Life Tips, NLP Techniques | 0 comments

NLP Treatment Technique That Can Put Your Phobia In Its Place!

Author: Karen Hastings, Hertfordshire

If you have a phobia that impacts significantly on your life, that leads to you avoiding situations, feeling overwhelmed or highly anxious, then you may be interested in this article about an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) technique. I have found this treatment technique, at my NLP and Hypnotherapy practice, Herts, very useful in helping people recover from intense and impairing phobias. It is also used to help people deal with memories from traumatic events.

What we know is that when someone has a phobia or has experienced a traumatic event which still bothers them in the present, they tend to regularly re-live or replay their phobia or trauma by seeing a picture and then getting all the bad feelings that go with that picture.

I have treated many people for phobias at my NLP and Hypnotherapy practice in Hertfordshire. For example, Sarah came to see me at my NLP practice Herts, because she was due to give a reading at her best-friends wedding and was terrified of public speaking. The wedding was six weeks away, and Sarah was constantly feeling anxious and dreading the event, which she felt guilty about. Sarah was also frustrated at how her fear was holding her back at work.

After carrying out a consultation with Sarah it became obvious that her fear began during childhood as she had several strong memories of feeling highly anxious in situations that required her to speak or be the centre of attention. For example, Sarah would often replay her memory of trying to make herself vomit in the toilets at a children’s party so that she could avoid helping a magician in front of the other children.

Sarah has many vivid visual memories related to her phobia that caused her anxiety but often people will have one image and associated feelings that they tend to replay. During our therapy sessions, at NLP and Hypnotherapy, Herts, I explained to Sarah about the Fast Phobia technique (also called the visual/kinesthetic dissociation technique). This process involves replaying the visual memory of the anxiety provoking incident but in a completely different way then Sarah had been used to. By replaying the memory in a different way, the loop of seeing a picture (V) and then experiencing unpleasant feelings (K) is broken. This enables the person to process and recode the event, to give it a new meaning, so that it is no longer a problem or is at the very least significant less anxiety provoking.

This technique works best with people who are able to visualize well and since this was the case with Sarah, we set to work on each of her events that she associated with her phobia and which still cause her anxiety. Prior to working on each of the events, Sarah was asked to rate how anxiety provoking each memory was.

In the first part of the phobia treatment, Sarah was asked to imagine that she was in a cinema sitting in a chair watching the screen. On the screen was a Black and White movie of a traumatic event she had chosen to work on. So Sarah would be watching a movie of herself in the event. Before she did this however, Sarah was asked to imagine herself floating upwards towards and into the projection booth, so that she was now going to watch herself in the cinema seat, watching a move of herself! The purpose of this part of the phobia technique is that is enables the person to review the movie but dissociated from the feelings.

These are very important changes that allow a new perception for the client. Changing the color image on the screen to black & white reduces the intensity of the movie being watched and suggests that it is old and in the past. By stepping into an outside observer position, Sarah is removed from the event, enabling her to watch the event with it feeling much less threatening. Sarah was then asked to play the movie through remaining dissociated. This enabled Sarah to think about the memory without having the fearful feeling for the first time.

During the second half of the treatment process Sarah was asked to imagine leaving the projection booth and walking up and stepping into the movie screen. Once inside the screen she was asked to change the movie to color and told to watch the movie backwards as if on rewind. This time Sarah was associated into the event, seeing through her own eyes. Sarah was told to rewind the movie as quickly as she could. This part was repeated several times until Sarah was able to play the movie backwards faster and faster. This time we played music at the same time. The chosen music was from a cartoon and was quick paced and comical. Both parts of the process were repeated several times. Sarah found that the movie became light hearted and non-anxiety provoking. In fact when we worked on her wedding speech she found she imagined the audience warming to her and herself feeling confident and relaxed. She even had the audience dancing along!!!

Through using this technique Sarah was able to re-process all of her scary memories of speaking events and felt much more confident and ready to deliver her wedding speech. Other techniques such as anchoring were also taught to help Sarah on the day. NLP and Hypnotherapy Hertfordshire uses the Fast Phobia Technique to support people in overcoming phobias.

Nlp Training: Understanding The Communication Model

Author: People Building

NLP is an art and a science. It is based on the idea that the sensory information around us is translated into thoughts and ideas, which affect our state, physiology and behaviour and therefore our results. Our words also affect our experience and the experience of others. NLP teaches us how to use communication more effectively. NLP also tells us that we code or represent information to ourselves in certain ways. How we do code information varies between events we perceive as positive and negative. NLP teaches specific strategies and techniques that we can learn in order to represent this information differently to produce better results. These strategies are taught during NLP courses and NLP training, during NLP practitioner courses.

The NLP communication model explains clearly how we process and use information and how this affects our state, physiology and behaviour. This is why it is a good starting point for therapy and I will always explain it to clients attending their first session of NLP or Hypnotherapy. This model was taught to me during my NLP practitioner training course with People Building an NLP training company. It is a tool I find invaluable. It is really important for clients to understand this model in order to be able to make changes to how they view their world.

What we know is that every second we are bombarded by sensory feedback (an estimated 2 million bits of information every second) from our 5 senses Visual (sight), Auditory (hearing), Kinaesthetic (feeling & touch), Olfactory (smelling) and Gustatory (tasting). In any given moment we are selective as to what information we pay attention to because of course we cannot possibly hope to process all of the information. Memory theorists suggest we can handle or remember about 7 new bits of information at once.

This means that we filter the 2 million bits of information into about 7 bits. The way we do this is by deleting, distorting or generalizing. Deletion means we do not attend to information that is not relevant in the moment, distortion means we adapt the information to make it fit with what we believe or are on the look-out for, generalization helps us to relate new information to what we already know. These three processes are crucial, as they prevent us from being overloaded with information and allow us to function.

However, what this also means is that we do not have the full picture because we have ignored or changed information during the filtering process. Using the 7 bits of information that have filtered we recreate the outside event inside our mind. This is called an internal representation. This mean that what we represent to ourselves inside our minds is never true to what is actually happening in the event

Our internal representations are a re-presentation of the original information after filtering. Because the information we take in is via our 5 senses, our internal representations are made up of thoughts, feelings, sounds, pictures, smell and tastes. Importantly, the way we represent or code information in our internal representation affects how we feel, which in turn affects our physiology and behavior. What we know is that happy people tend to filter and represent information differently to depressed or anxious people. More importantly via cognitive therapy such as NLP or hypnotherapy, Herts, people experiencing mental distress can learn to filter in a way that allows refreshed perspectives and a different emotional experience.

The communication model is something that you will learn by attending an NLP course such as an NLP practitioner or master practitioner course. People Building, an NLP training company, run free NLP taster events during which the NLP communication model is taught.
