Neuro-Linguistic Programming & Coaching
Do you have a big life decision to make? Let us help you make the right decision using NLP techniques
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of subjective experience. Neuro refers to gathering information through our five senses and linguistic refers to the language we use when we talk to ourselves (self-talk), the language others use when communicating with us, to us or at us, and the language we use when talking to others. Programming refers to the patterns we use to utilize the information gathered, through these patterns we form habits and sometimes negative ways of thinking. N.L.P is about seeing things differently, it’s about trying something new, it’s about asking what can I do differently?
If we keep doing the same things we will get the same reactions and outcome.
How can N.L.P be used in education?
It can be very effective with children and adults who suffer with low self-esteem or a lack of confidence in their abilities. During each session of teaching, if felt appropriate, some N.L.P techniques will be used. Modelling is an excellent teaching tool, which most schools have adopted. Modelling is an N.L.P technique which teaches pupils how to copy someone who is successful. For example a model for the writing process would involve a teacher modelling how to write a story, as they are writing the teacher shares their thought processes with the pupil. It can also help in spelling, maths and many other areas. Spelling techniques used are very effective especially with pupils who find phonics difficult to grasp. It teaches pupils how to think and feel in a positive way about themselves as a learner. This can make all the difference. So many pupils lack confidence in themselves, they think they are not very good at maths, writing, spelling and begin to give up. This method gives pupils a lifeline and within a short period of time confidence and self -esteem grows alongside their academic achievements.
