What was your path to becoming an NLP practitioner?
My life has been a succession of significant changes, from childhood to adulthood—some I initiated through conscious decisions, while others were brought on by events beyond my control. In either case, these personal experiences taught me that living life as we desire—a life of purpose—is about perceiving and creating choices of quality, in any circumstances. Once I discovered the value of NLP tools and the vast world of personal development, it became clear to me that I wanted to share this knowledge and be in service of anyone interested in living a more nurturing life.
What should someone know about working with you?
Our choices shape our lives in so many ways, yet they don’t always reflect our values, or serve our physical and mental health interests. They can even negatively impact those interacting with us. Knowing what’s important in life, and acting in alignment with that, leads to deep fulfillment. But doing that can be very challenging. If you feel a gap between where you are and where you want to be, NLP coaching is for you. Through simple yet meaningful talks and exercises, we will focus on gaining clarity, identifying your blind spots, and creating physiological states to help you live in alignment with what is truly important to you. It will be my privilege to accompany you in this process.
What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try NLP coaching?
Stepping out of the familiar can be very frightening. While your comfort zone may be the source of your suffering and dissatisfaction, it’s still what you know. Deciding to step out and look for new ways to do what you intuitively feel is necessary in life can empower you to make shifts and create constructive change. As you start to walk along your path, you are already a different person than who you once thought you were. That’s where growth begins.
What is neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)?
Neuro: We first experience the world through sensory receptors of the five senses. At this stage, our experiences are fully unconscious, but being aware of them can be very beneficial. Linguistic: Language makes the sensorial experience conscious to the mind. Our linguistic map is a reflection of the prism through which we understand life, and it’s tinged by our experiences, our backgrounds, and the many filters that shape the way we look at things. Understanding our map allows us to see its bias. Programming: Unaware of our inner processes, our behavioral response to the world is more reactive than it is thoughtful and conscious. Becoming aware of the cycle of our triggers and triggered reactions helps recover free will.
How long does the NLP process typically take?
You can't know in advance how many sessions will be needed. Just like fruit hanging on a tree will fall down in a brief lapse of time, change can sometimes occur very quickly—but everyone has their own unique maturation and growth process. Some people will come for a few sessions, others will come for longer. Most of my clients come for several months, at a weekly pace.
