"When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters--one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.”
John F. Kennedy.

My approach as a counsellor is to enable the exploration of feelings and thoughts about oneself and relationships with others, and to understand the connection between how our past experiences and our current behaviours may result in negative outcomes. The process is collaborative, based on respect, and is non-judgemental.

"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
Quote from Mother Teresa.

NLP is often referred to as ‘the software for the brain’. Changing our mental programmes leads to positive changes in how we think, feel, act and live. Changing how we think, changes what we think. Neuro – refers to the brain, our neurology, our nervous system that links our body and mind, through which our experience is processed through our five senses. Linguistic – refers to the language we use, including non-verbal and self-communication. The way we perceive life is coded through language. Programming – refers to the ability to discover, utilise and change the ‘programmes’ or repeated sequences of thoughts and behaviours that run our lives. So, NLP is about connection for our thoughts, speech and actions are what connects us to others and the environment around us. People have used NLP ideas throughout the ages...it did not spring into being in the early 70's with Richard Bandler and John Grinder, when the name was invented. The ancient Greek's talked about sense experience and Aristotle talked about submodalities in all but name when he referred to the quality of the senses. After all, it was Aristotle who said "Nothing enters the brain but through the senses".
