Note: designed for trained NLP Practitioners only. Summarises patterns only.
This book breaks Practitioner-level NLP patterns into easy-to-understand chunks and displays them in simple flowcharts – showing how to use them and the path to follow in each pattern. It allows you to recognise the patterns within the patterns, making them simple, easy to remember and apply, and gives you a big picture on what can be a mass of procedures.
It includes all the basic patterns:
• anchoring patterns
• timeline patterns
• parts patterns
• submodality patterns.
This includes foundational patterns such as setting well-formed outcomes, setting lifelines, eliciting a strategy, and future pacing and leading.
These patterns deal with recurring habits, bad experiences, developing empathy, installing good habits, breaking phobias, setting up positive futures, resolving internal conflict, and getting rid of compulsions.
Sourced from different schools of NLP (Dilts, Bandler and Grinder, Tad James, Wyatt Woodsmall), it's designed to be a handy thumbnail guide to applying the many patterns you've learnt.
Each pattern is a flowchart with all of the decision points marked, and maps out the iterative process within the process.
There is also a useful section telling you when to use each pattern.
This guide helps you remember the NLP patterns, so that you can make the biggest difference to your clients with the least effort.
It presupposes that you:
• have practiced the pattern before
• understand the flow of each one (even if you don’t remember the exact sequence)
• know when to use each pattern.
I also presuppose that you understand:
• the basic NLP terminology
• how to set anchors
• what submodalities (SMD’s) are
• questioning using the Meta Model
• Milton Model language patterns.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is some powerful technology. Use it wisely, remember to check for ecology, and to make it fun.
