Neuro Linguistic Programming is the study of the structure of excellence. What does that mean though to you and I who are parents?
It means that
- you already have all the resources you need to be an excellent parent
- there is no failure only feedback
- if you spot it – you’ve got it
- mind and body are ONE
- the person with the most flexibility rules the system
- if you always do what you’ve always done you will always get what you’ve always got
- the map is not the territory
- there is a positive intention behind every behaviour
These are some of the pre-suppositions of NLP. Each one has a message for us as parents.
I offer therapy to parents and children as well as writing NLP books such as Be a happier parent with NLP and the Engaging NLP series of workbooks, all of which you’ll find in my Amazon store. Probably the most useful piece of learning parents leave me with is that if they focus on the excellence in their child they will get more of it.
What you focus on is what you get
If you find fault, criticise, only notice them when they play up and only talk to their teacher about them when there’s a problem , this is the behaviour you are unconsciously telling them gets attention.
I came to NLP as a mother of four (from toddler to teen) a former Nursery School teacher and a Market Researcher specialising in Children’s products so you can see I have worked with children for a very long time. I was trained by Sue Knight, author of many books on NLP and a very well established International NLP Trainer. As soon as I started discovering NLP, it was only natural to use it with my own children.
I was amazed. NLP tools and techniques made such a huge difference and situations that I had hitherto managed clumsily I was handling with calm and even some elegance and self control. No longer was I being accused of ‘over-reacting’,'being too emotional’, ‘dramatic’ or ‘exaggerating’ on a daily basis but was able to save those reactions for when they would be useful and perform in a controlled and managed way.I found I was less tired, more energized and able to make decisions quickly instead of trying to please everyone all the time.
I am passionate about teaching NLP for parents, children, teenagers and teachers so they can use it themselves on a daily basis. So I run regular workshops and visit families to introduce them to NLP.
Of course I also offer therapy to children and teens to help them tackle issues such as
- lack of confidence
Lately I have also been treating their parents for issues relating both to parenting and their own relationship.

Some people say NLP is a series of tools others say it is a way of life.
I say it is both of these and much more.
Neuro is how we think. It is about the way our conscious and unconscious mind connect to affect what we do and say, how we react to situations and events. NLP provides us with tools and techniques that offer a way to understand how our mind works and understand how other people tick so we can achieve the best in us and help others do the same.
Linguistic is how we express our thoughts in language whether externally or our inner voice. The words we use affect the effectiveness of our communication whether in spoken word or in writing. Imagine if you could learn to express yourself so that you could have greater influence in your world.
Programming is how we make sense of our experiences and create our own personal development programme.
What we think say and do become patterns or habits such that in certain situations we react in a particular way that is typical for us.
Sometimes this is resourceful and sometimes it isn’t.
When it isn’t, I can help.
