Where should an NLP Practitioner put the boundaries in practice?

One of the things I love about teaching NLP is the enthusiasm I see in my students. They are often excited about how they can make a difference and help others. This is wonderful to see and the energy is very positive.

That said, I also take great care to caution my graduate NLP Practitioners to be careful about drawing their boundaries and making smart choices about who they work with.

What do I mean by that?

People seek out NLP Practitioners for many reasons and sometimes there are warning bells that new Practitioners need to take care to heed. Firstly, in terms of scope. While NLP is a very powerful tool and can help most people, some things take more experience than others to deal with.

For example, if a person is on medication for depression or any other mental health issue they really need to be working with an experienced NLP Practitioner who also has therapeutic training. To be clear, NLP Practitioner certification is not enough on its own for someone to be a therapist.

NLP Practitioner does give you the tools to work with people who want to improve their confidence, self-esteem, well-being etc. It is a great tool to use in a coaching practice or in the workplace generally.

It is a great foundation for therapy and can certainly lead to working with therapeutic populations.

So what to do if you are an NLP Practitioner wanting to work as a therapist?

Here are some suggestions:

  1. Make sure you have a supervisor, usually your NLP Trainer or NLP Master Trainer can provide this. Having a supervisor is basic good professional practice. I offer my own students the chance to attend a regular supervision group and they can book individual sessions with me either in person or via skype.
  2. Keep a reflective learning log to continue learning from your own experiences.
  3. Attend regular further training beyond NLP Master Practitioner and Hypnotherapy. Attend conferences and specialist workshops in fields you are interested in. I still do this myself, for instance this month I’m attending a workshop with Connie Rae Andreas.
  4. Attend regular practice groups and peer supervision/practice groups. Remember you can always set one up if there is nothing based near you.
  5. Be clear about your own experience and expertise. What do you feel comfortable handling? Reality check yourself, specifically what tools and knowledge do you have? Put the boundaries of the type of client you are qualified to work with in your advertising.
  6. If you are working with a client and you are not sure what to do, seek supervision and/or refer the client to a more experienced practitioner.

Understanding Limiting Beliefs and how they hold you back from your dreams

Take the leap!
Take the leap!

Are you wanting to make changes in your life and yet somehow you don’t have the will or the motivation to take the first step?

 

 

Perhaps you don’t believe you have what it takes or think others would not be interested in you. Maybe you lack confidence or self-esteem.

If any of the above sounds familiar the chances are you have some kind of limiting belief. The great news for you is simple….. you can change, you just need to know how.

So what do you need to do?

The first step is self-awareness. Recognise what you are believing about yourself, your capabilities and others that are holding you back and then educate yourself in how to change. Beyond that take the leap into helping yourself by reaching out for the support you need.

Let’s start with some definitions.

In simple terms, a limiting belief is anything you believe about yourself or the world that holds you back from having the kind of life you really dream of.

What makes identifying these limitations so challenging is the way we trick ourselves into believing our beliefs are concrete facts.

To give you an example, if a person believes they are unlovable they will often be able to provide countless examples and evidence to support this theory. We are experts at defending our limiting beliefs whether they are about our true nature, our abilities or about the world in general.

We do this for a very important reason.

We developed each of our limiting beliefs for a very important reason in our early life and that reason was survival. At the time it was the best option we had available to us that would allow us to get by and yet often in adulthood these beliefs no longer serve us so we hand on to them.

NLP provides some really great tools to help you change and transform your limitations allow you to step into your natural brilliance.

If you are ready to transform your life and become the best version of you take the leap today!

Here are a few options to get you started in your own transformation:

  1. Download our free audio, taken from a workshop helping people improve self-esteem using NLP.
  2. If you live in the East Sussex/West Kent area join us for our NLP Practice group on Thursday where we will be exploring “Busting Limiting Beliefs”

“Melody has been my trainer for NLP Practitioner, Master Practitioner, ILM L7 Coaching, TA for Trainers/Coaches, as well as numerous Practice Groups and Coaching Supervision Sessions. She has also acted as Personal and Professional Coach through some of the most challenging times of my life and career.”

diploma 2013 2

“After extensive research into different NLP trainers and attended many sample training sessions. I choose to complete my NLP Diploma with Melody and what a great training it is! I have been so impressed with Melody and Gwiz that I have continued my NLP learning and I am now a GWiz Master Practitioner thanks to the dedicated support of an amazing trainer.”

“Melody and her partner Joe Cheal at GWiz Parternship are extremely experienced Master Trainers of NLP and together they bring a unique angle to their training style. The quality that I most admire in them is their integrity. You are in safe hands with Melody and Joe. The other quality is their vast knowledge of the topics they teach. I couldn’t recommend a better trainer for NLP. Can I just add that there is never a bored moment during their training?”

“If you have ever said to yourself, ‘There has to be more to life than this’ and or are seeking new meaning to your life, or maybe your journey has reached a cross roads or even a roundabout and you’d like to make sense of it, Melody will support you on that journey in any direction that suits you. Melody is a highly intelligent, perceptive, supportive, gifted lady. One of Melody’s many gifts is her naturally ability to identify the root cause of a person’s discomfort, unease, troubles, or issue almost immediately allowing the process of awareness to come gently and effortlessly to the individual in a way that is perfect for them. I have the pleasure of taking my journey through personal development and personal awareness with both Joe and Melody through NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and solely with Melody through Transactional Analysis and Hypnotherapy and am going back for more. Whilst training a group, with her great linguistic skills, Melody connects with each and every one of us on an individual level as if you are the only person in the room with her. Melody’s passion for helping others fulfil their potential is evident in everything she does. Melody has high standards and lives the ethics and values she believes in. The GWiz learning environment is warm, safe, comfortable, and relaxing allowing all learning to be absorbed, tried and tested in a supportive timely way.”

“Melody is a gift to the world of personal development and awareness, if you’re thinking about it, I recommend Melody to you wholeheartedly, Melody will help you change your life”

“I have trained with Melody and Joe at GWiz for both my NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner qualification. I have found their training invaluable and the training has given me a huge amount professionally and personally. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody looking for training, coaching or NLP. Highly recommended!!”

“The programme has created a real shift in me, and I’m finding it so exciting being able to use my learning to help others –

I’m having some real ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ moments!”

“I’m noticing so much now as I’m speaking to others – their language patterns, sensory information.”
