Q. Does NLP deal with emotions?

A. Yes. This is one of the things NLP does best. You can experience it for yourself in a seminar. NLP helps people transform debilitating emotions into empowering, resourceful feelings. Since many therapies are very slow, based on catharsis or venting your feelings, many people associate personal change with the expression of a lot of unpleasant feelings. NLP offers a much more pleasant, effective way of dealing with emotions. We assist people in going through old memories in new ways, quickly transforming unpleasant experiences into positive resources. This is done in a content free atmosphere. If you need to tell your story, you can tell a trainer one-on-one. Call the office for private appointments.

Q. Is NLP manipulative?

A. The definition of manipulative is: influencing or attempting to influence the behavior or emotions of others for one's own purpose. Since NLP is so powerful in getting results, people want to know that it will be used to benefit them. Our training emphasizes ways to make sure the changes you help someone get are in her or his best interest. Knowing NLP gives you ways of protecting yourself from manipulation by others or the media.

Q. How is integrity incorporated in the teaching of NLP?

A. We find it works better when your purpose and others purpose come together for a win/win. Now obviously in sports there is a win/ lose. People come in with their own moral ethical code. We address integrity specifically in week 3 in the Advanced Practitioner Program.

Q. Can I get the results I want by reading a book, or is it better to attend a seminar?

A. NLP books are an economical way to find out more about NLP. Attending a seminar allows you to install the technology into behavior. Reading a book lets you know about NLP. A training is the easiest way to have NLP skills become a natural part of your behavior as they allow you to observe live demonstrations, practice in an encouraging environment, get feedback and make personal changes along the way. In addition, the training staff can help you identify the blind spots you cannot find individually through books.
