NLP & MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL RELEAESE
NLP (neuro linguistic programming) is something I came across when I was looking for specific tools which would help me to support my coaching clients in a deeper way with overcoming mindset blocks.
My clients typically come to me because they are ready to move to their next level and make more impact. I’m a media specialist so a big part of the journey is helping them not just get comfortable promoting themselves, but to thrive in scenarios when they are asked to share their story. That might be in a press interview or speaking on a stage.
What I have learnt on my own business journey is that mindset and communication are crucial when it comes to creating success in your business. It is part understanding yourself and how you can improve how you think, react and behave and also how you can better understand and communicate with the people around you.
As an NLP practitioner, supporting my clients to overcome their limiting beliefs and negative patterns is a core part of my work. Our beliefs impact our thoughts and our thoughts determine our behaviour. What I love about the NLP is that it allows you to create new foundations by re-wiring your brain. My favourite explanation is from Richard Bandler the co-founder of NLP who says, “NLP is an instruction or owner’s manual for the mind."
Why do we need to change the script?
Our belief system acts as our inner satellite navigation so if it’s not set to success mode then we are going to find ourselves hitting the same blocks time and time again.
We all have stories we tell ourselves which are often rooted in beliefs that have come from childhood. Because they are subconscious beliefs, we aren’t aware of them on a surface level, but these beliefs contribute to how we are showing up in the world. If we don't create new stories that support our vision and goals we run the risk of not reaching out potential.
We all recognise those sneaky feelings that can creep in like “I’m not good enough”, “I don’t deserve this” or “I shouldn’t even try”. They are all directly related to suppressed emotions and can hamper our success.
Learning about how the unconscious mind works is nothing short of fascinating. 95% of everything we do comes from the subconscious mind. That means every decision, action, thought and emotion. It drives our behaviour.
When we talk about emotional baggage, I liken it to a stack of file folders in our subconscious mind where we store unprocessed emotions, learnt behaviour and outdated beliefs, all of which can have a massive impact on our life. We are not conscious of these things, but we know they are there if we get stuck in procrastination mode or limit what we think is possible for us.
When we have a limiting belief the reason it stays stuck is because our subconscious mind is always looking for evidence to support that belief. If we don’t create space by clearing out the emotional baggage it becomes overwhelming and our reactions can be more extreme and out of proportion to the external experience we are having.
What many people don’t realise is that it's possible to change the script and rewrite new stories filled with possibility. We don't have to hang onto outdated beliefs and emotions that were never ours and simply don't serve us.
Within NLP there is a specific modality called MER (mental and emotional release) which I have found to be the most effective way of supporting my clients to clear the path to success by fully releasing the negative emotions and limiting emotions that make up emotional baggage.
I recently had a client who had been part of a successful start-up team and she had a big dream to share her story in the media, but she felt like people would judge her. On one hand it was something she really wanted but deep down she didn’t think she deserved it, so she didn’t take action.
That’s a great example of how we can want something but sabotage it easily because of old programming.
My clients go on to reach previously overwhelming goals after just one MER session like launching their own podcast platform and embracing their fear of being featured in the media. Their belief about what is possible for them shifts and their confidence is transformed.
