We get you un-stuck

As Transformational NLP practitioners we are focused on quickly showing you how you are unknowingly holding yourself back.  We will show you that you have all the resources you need to overcome:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship problems
  • Phobias
  • Feeling stuck

We are not therapists, counselors, or coaches.  We don’t require endless recurring visits.  We are skilled practitioners who in just one session will have you feeling more empowered to become who you want to be.

No Magic Needed

We just have a conversation with you and point out some interesting traits in your thinking that you may not be aware of.   The most common comment we get from our clients is “Wow, that’s a great question!”  Sometimes that is all that is necessary.  Other times we’ll show you techniques for giving yourself new and better choices, and make them easier for you to chose.  You are always conscious and in control.  Transformational NLP is about you changing you to become what you want to be.

What is NLP?

We all have automatic rules in our head.  Most are very useful.  Just like we are able put ourselves on automatic every day we commute to work, we have automatic rules we use to get through our day.  These mental rules make it possible for us to not have to re-figure out how life works every morning.  We start figuring out those rules as small children, and therein lies the problem.  Sometimes a very young version of us has laid down an automatic rule that might make sense to a child but actually works against us as an adult.  NLP practitioners are trained to spot these rules that need to be revised in order to unlock our full potential as an adult.

Back in the seventies, when ‘programming’ was new and cool, some neuro-psychology and linguistics professors at UC Santa Cruz came up with what was probably a very cool name at the time: Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP.  Programming is a bit of a misnomer.  Computer programmers delete out old code and put in new rules that force a change.  NLP practitioners can’t do that kind of thought surgery.  We really just point out rules you are using and make it easier for you to make another choice.  While we might wish NLP had a better name, we have to acknowledge the genius of the team that uncovered these universal human behaviors and honor their work.

If you are interested in the history of NLP we suggest the book A New Psychology: Transformational NLP.  If you’d like to learn about NLP, please visit the world’s best resource for learning about NLP: NLP Marin.
