Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) recognises that there is a strong connection between our neurological processes, the language we use and our behaviours. The founders of NLP studied the behaviours of some of the most exceptional people of their time, and recognised patterns that we can now model. These patterns have been adapted over time, and are, in my opinion, one of the most powerful tools in overcoming anxiety, addictions, phobias and PTSD.
The thing I love most about NLP is that there is no need for my clients to keep reliving their past, as is often the case with talking therapy, and we can focus on ensuring you have the best future instead.
Emotional Change Therapy (ECT) combines some NLP but is a newer approach based on scientific research that our hearts are actually sending more messages to our brain, than our brains send to our hearts. In fact 9 times more! Traditional therapy has focused more on our mind, whereas ECT is all about Heart and Brain coherence.
This is an incredibly powerful combination of tools and techniques, and is utilising all the latest scientific evidence around the power of our hearts.
Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is a traditional holistic acupressure treatment, designed to disrupt blocked energy within the body. It is also known as “tapping”. Tapping can treat people with anxiety, depression, addictions, physical pain, insomnia and PTSD.
EFT focuses on our meridian points, which are the energy hotspots within our body. The tapping releases blocked energy and restores balance, thus freeing physical pain and emotional distress.
As with Chinese medicine, these energy hotspots and pathways help balance energy flow and maintain our health. The tapping enables us to access our body’s energy and send signals to the part of your brain that controls anxiety. By stimulating the meridian points, we can reduce the anxiety or negative emotion you may currently feel.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is the main therapy recommended by the NHS. It focuses on our thoughts and behaviours, and helps us identify patterns we may be running, or stories we may be telling ourselves.
Whilst it can be very useful, in my opinion, it often does not get to the underlying root cause of anxiety and therefore I always use this approach alongside other therapies.
If anxiety is something you or your loved ones struggle with regularly, then please get in touch to discuss how I can help you overcome the underlying cause of anxiety.
