NLP, Hypnosis and Life Coaching offer a viable alternative to mainstream therapies by providing an alternative to traditional talking therapies. Whilst they may not be substantiated with the clout of larger organisations behind them, they continue to play a vital role in providing the support and tools individuals require in modern day society. The nuclear family appears not to be so prominent with the modern day culture of relocacting for work. Traditional support systems have lost the strong hold they once had. Individuals suffering from Stress, anxiety amongst others, look for alternative means of support and of channeling their frustrations with ever increasings NHS waiting times.
NLP, Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy offer viable alternatives and rapid solutions, and In doing so they alleviate pressure on the already heaving NHS. These therapies have evolved with time and are slowly becoming intrenched in the fabric of society.
Chronologically Hypnosis reaches back many millennia as a form of therapy where it was used, amongst the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Indians, Chinese, Persians and Sumerians.(Clevedon hypnotherapy Centre)
NLP emerged more recently in the 1970’s as an alternative to the largely utilised psychoanalysis phenomena.
Life coaching came into fruition in the 1980s from a need to develop target focused goals enabling individuals to reach their full potential in sport, and transitioning into offering the same in working and daily life.
All three derived from a place of need. Hard to remember a time where they were not part of modern society.
