What is NLP?

NLP Stands For Neuro Linguistic Programming

N = Neuro

Your neurological system.  This is your wiring. The Neuro is the connection between your brain and your body, but it is so much more than that.  You take in external information via your 5 senses and your inner-talk. You then filter and process that information inside and use it to create behaviour.  Sometimes this behaviour can show as depression, anxiety, conflict and stress.

L = Linguistic

Language and how you communicate.  You communicate with other people and yourself through language, your tone of voice and your body language.  This communication can be either effective or ineffective and is only decided by you,  based on your results.  The use of language is critically important in all communication.  This also includes your inner language. For example, “I need that wine to relax me” or “I deserve an extra piece of chocolate cake” or even “I’ll just have one more cigarette.”

P = Programming

Your habits; that is the way you go about your daily life that makes it possible for you to perform.  These habits can be bad habits, for example, biting your nails, swearing and compulsive shopping to name a few.

In other words, NLP, Time Line TherapyTM and Hypnosis is like understanding the language of your mind. These are powerful techniques that the practitioner at Enhanced Life Coaching will use with you.


Enhanced Life Coaching work with you to produce new neurological pathways, resulting in behavior that will accommodate you better for your life and eliminate old destructive patterns of behavior.


Here is an analogy for you. Your conscious mind is like the captain of a ship standing on the bridge giving out orders. It is the crew in the engine room below; the unconscious mind that carries out these orders. The captain may be in charge of the ship, but it is the crew that guides the ship by following all the training they have received over the years.
