Neuro Linguistic Programming
What is NLP?
NLP is a Coaching tool used by practitioners to facilitate change in people for various outcomes. It has been used worldwide since the 1970’s and was co-created by Dr. Richard Bandler and John Grinder after having observed and modelled the best therapists in the industry of personal change and development. In many ways it is very similar to CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and the techniques work by controlling and regulating the inner emotional states, rather than other things which may be beyond our control.
The NLP4Kids Franchise was created by Gemma Bailey over 10 years ago. There are now around 50 Practitioners up and down the UK alone. Practitioners work privately in their own clinics and in schools and other organisations with children providing 1-1 therapy and workshops for children and young people facing any of the challenges listed below. At NLP4Kids, the tools and techniques have been modified and adapted for use with children and young people.

What can you expect in a therapy session?
Helping children to become the best version of themselves is such a rewarding job to have. In the session, not only do children work on their thinking patterns through talking and fun activities, but they are also taught some of the tools so that they can use them forever afterwards. NLP is fantastic for creating these new thinking patterns and developing lasting confidence and change for many challenges.
We provide 1-1 therapy for children in school settings. These can be arranged by your school if they decide to hire me as part of either a short or long term contract.
We provide workshops for children, parents and teachers in the school setting.
Topics are usually based around improving confidence and reducing anxiety for any of the categories above.
I would welcome any invitations if schools are interested in providing therapy for struggling children within the school setting either for a whole or half day per week, whether it is for the whole academic year or even just one term. References can be provided from the schools that I am currently working in for your assurance.
