What is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming was developed in 1970s by Richard Bandler and Dr John Grinder.  They were fascinated by how some people could get through in difficult circumstances  even in poor health, while others failed to strive in similar situations.

Together they developed a technique that empowered individuals by helping them to think efficiently and enhance their communication skills.  They called it Neuro Linguistic Programming because it involves the understanding of our neurological system, how the words we speak influence others and how our thinking patterns assist us to achieve our goals.

We all experience the world and process information using our senses in different ways.  Our thoughts are processed by our neurological system, which affects our emotions, behaviors and responses at a physiological level.

It is now widely accepted and recognized how our perceptions, emotions and thought processes affect not only our achievements, but also our health and our chances to live a fulfilling and healthy life.

 NLP might sound very technical: • neuro-linguistic means how the brain relates and responds to language, • programming in this means using what we know about the brain’s relationship with language to make a positive impact on a client’s behaviour.

How Does it Work

Every word in the dictionary conveys meaning, but some have a stronger impact on the brain than others in terms of things like calming effect, or suggestive value. Thinking about the brain as a machine for a second, most of the data it receives about the world is through languages. These include: • Spoken language • The written word • Body Language • Social/Cultural Language (agreed meanings, for example, the red light on a traffic light means ‘stop.’) With so much language data going into our brains on a daily basis, and affecting how we make day to day decisions, It stands to reason that having a solid understanding of how language is processed allows you to use it in a more productive way. At ML Fuentes, we harness the power of language and use it to help our clients enrich their lives, treatments such as hypnotherapy are highly NLP focussed, and produce excellent results for those who want to give up unwanted habits, help people cope with pain or illness, gain confidence, or prepare for a period of intense learning.

Social Anxiety / Professional Confidence - Public Speaking / Fear of Flying

"I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago"

I've suffered from constant anxiety for as long as I can remember, particularly from social anxiety and fear of public speaking, to the point that my office jobs were no longer manageable and I was very close to fall deeply into depression. I had very little self-confidence, despite having progressed in my career and achieved many of my professional and personal goals. However, I got to a point in which I wasn't able to progress any further due to my the constant fear of being evaluated and criticised by others, which paralysed me and stopped me from speaking up and being more visible. My day to day prior to the sessions was absolutely controlled by my anxiety and lack of confidence due to past experiences, mainly during my childhood. Having done a number of therapies before (eMDR, CBT) I was sceptical at first, but I wanted to give hypnotherapy and the BAGC6 a go. After around 13 sessions I can say that I'm in a much better place than when I started. My constant anxiety has hugely decreased, and I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago, like giving a speech in front of my colleagues without having a panic attack or simply socialising with new people at a party. My perspective on things is now different and I've gained new confidence which allows me to speak and interact with others without fear. Maria has been great in understanding my issues and creating a very tailored treatment (hypnosis, eMDR, etc) to tackle these. She's always been very determined and a firm believer in a full recovery which has been very helpful, particularly in moments when I wanted to give up. She's also giving me tools and techniques that I can use to manage emotions and to stay focused (like auto-hypnosis) and I'm using these almost on a daily basis to continue building on my confidence and resilience. As per the fear of flying, this is something that I still need to test, but I'm confident that I will have also overcome it in the same way that I've beaten my anxiety disorder. I can only be grateful to Maria for all her help and for believing in me since day 1, and totally recommend her treatment!

Thanks so much!
