On my Journey - An Introduction to NLP

Updated: Jan 13, 2021

What is NLP you might ask?

Its full name is Neuro Linguistic Programming - a dreadful name for one of the most practical and effective approaches to understanding what makes us tick'

NLP is a very understandable and practical approach to psychology and communication, based on the study of people who naturally do things well.

In 2013 I had the pleasure of attending a course which changed my life.

Unlike anything else I have ever attended in my career this was a journey of self-discovery and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity.

“At the start of the course feeling very anxious about talking about myself in front of large groups of people filled me with fear. I am immensely proud to say that Accelerate gave me the confidence and belief to overcome my fears.

If I could describe what NLP has given me then this course was the key to unlock my mind. As a result, opening my mind to new ways of thinking, with the skills and tools to become better at communicating. Honestly, I started to feel a change in myself after the initial first day. A real-life changing moment was the realisation that I control of my thoughts, emotions and behaviour in reacting to life’s situations. In changing our minds, we change in ourselves. I became more confident, had a higher level of self-belief, opened my mind to new opportunities, look to challenge/feedback and use the tools/resources from the course every day.

The meaning of communication is the response you get…….

Communication plays a large part in your life both work and personal. Through preparation using tools from NLP to change my language, presence, confidence and self-belief it has enabled me to successfully engage with others, understanding their needs, and taking onboard feedback enabled me to influence my decisions.
