I am an NLP therapist who also utilises training and experience in person-centred therapy and as a stress-reduction coach. I believe the link between our present behaviour and thought process is strongly connected to past experiences and beliefs, which can create an unhealthy state of mind and coping.
Working safely and openly with a therapist can make it possible for us to change our unhelpful thought process into something more useful, bringing ease and clarity to our perception of self and how we deal with issues from the past, present or future which have caused one to feel ‘blocked’ or distorted.
Integrative therapy with Merly
The focus of NLP is to bring change in perception of self and develop choices in response to the way we communicate and deal with the situations life presents. Whilst, person-centred therapy focuses on facilitating personal growth and the relationship with self by allowing a client to explore and utilise their own strengths and personal identity.
This integrative approach is beneficial to those who have an urge to explore themselves, their feelings, and for those who want to address specific psychological habits, unhelpful patterns of thinking and are looking for healthier ways of coping and acceptance.
Seeking help and deciding what could work best for you can be daunting and confusing, the most important part of the experience is not the jargon, but rather the human instinct of whether there is therapeutic chemistry between you and your therapist.
