A single pink rose is growing through a metal chainlink fence. While there is a real barrier it is possible to break through, which the rose is doing in all its beauty.

If you’re so anxious that you really struggle to make it happen, what’s the first powerful step that you can take?

It surprises and troubles me that so many people, adults and children, experience recurring issues with anxiety. While a certain level of anxiety is perfectly natural, being so overwhelmed is certainly not. Anxiety for many is hugely debilitating. It stops people from living the life they want to live. Additionally, it reduces choices and options, […]

Are you currently doing, having, and being all that you want? And now imagine where NLP can lead you.

People often ask me what NLP is. I tell them that NLP is the study of the structure of our subjective experience. Unsurprisingly, I frequently get some very blank looks. We all experience the world in different ways, even when our experiences are objectively the same. Additionally, we process and store information about our world

When you finally understand that your entire experience of life is all happening in your head, what difference does it make?

The NLP Model of Communication explains how we experience reality through our five senses. We process that sensory information, running it through a number of filters. This includes deleting, distorting, and generalising. We feed it through experiences of time, energy, and matter, through memories and decisions, through preferences and attitudes. Finally, we store an internal

What do you do when some of the people in your life are the real barrier to your success?

Almost all of us, I’m sure, have people in our lives. Friends, family, partners, neighbours, colleagues. The list goes on. Some of us will be delighted by the people we have around us. We’ll note the joy they bring, and how the relationships enrich our lives. The truth is, though, that not everyone has the

How heavy does the baggage of your past have to be before you’re ready to sort yourself out?

We go through life accruing experiences, some good, some bad, and some indifferent. We process those experiences and most end up safely stored in our memories. It’s all part of the amazing power of the unconscious mind. However, some memories just don’t resolve. For multiple reasons we keep those memories alive, reliving and revisiting them,

Is everyone winning as a consequence of your actions, or are you the only winner while everyone else loses?

One of the presuppositions of NLP is that we can only evaluate behaviour and change in terms of context and ecology. That’s to say, we can only evaluate change if we firstly understand the circumstances in which change has taken place. Secondly, we can only make that evaluation if we can confirm that everyone benefits,

Rusty chains holding you back.

How powerful are your limiting beliefs that hold you back now and routinely prevent you from accessing all the opportunities that in fact are open to you?

Ever wondered how powerful your limiting beliefs are? You make your plans. You set your goals. It’s all with the aim of achieving what you want. It all sounds great. And then it doesn’t happen. Apparently, it doesn’t seem to matter how positive you are. Something holds you back when you consider the future, your

A cracked pane of clear glass, doing the best it can to remain intact

How can we all possibly be doing the best we can with the resources we have when so many seem deliberately to do badly?

One of the presuppositions of NLP is that everyone is doing the best that they can with the resources that they have available. In other words, our behaviour and the behaviour of others is the best that we can all do in that moment. This, quite frankly, seemed hard to accept when I see so
