NLP is the psychology of excellence. Understanding NLP is like being given the manual for your brain. It enables you to become our own coach and weave magic into all areas of your life.
NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming a bit of a mouthful (I know!) but if we break it down into its parts it really is quite simple.
Neuro: Relates to the structure our brain and how it works.
Linguistic: The language we use to make sense of our world and how we communicate it.
Programming: Simply refers to our habits of thinking.
NLP differs from traditional psychology. Traditional psychology focuses on what is “wrong” with people. It then, uses these findings, to predict and control future behaviour through interventions.
NLP has a different approach. The founders of NLP Bandler and Grinder were curious about “what makes the difference between somebody who is merely competent at any given skill, and somebody who excels at the same skill?”
This lead to the development of a remarkable set of strategies, based on the understanding that when you change HOW you think, you can change WHAT you think. We know that by changing how and what you think, you can dramatically transform the results you create in your life.
And instead of looking for what was wrong with people, NLP looks for what is “right”. It recognises that each and everyone of us has something genius about being, uniquely us. Whether its the way you; make a cup of coffee, build rapport with people, walk into a room with confidence, bring laughter into a space or sing, dance, build, write, create, cook, run or what ever your something special is. It’s your kind of special. YOU GOT IT! and NLP recognises this as “excellence”. We can refer to it as “Ness”
Stephen Covey said “Everything is created twice”. First in your mind, (as an internal state) and then physically (as an external state). Firstly, you have the idea to create some kind of change in your life (internal). Then you physically action it by doing some research, finding out about NLP coaching and making an appointment (external). Or even more simply put, you think about a cup of coffee and then you make one.
In other words, what and how we think creates our experiences. It also shapes the feelings we have about them. When we learn new the tools and strategies to change our internal state, we find our external reality also changes to match our new internal state. It’s kinda like downloading a new app. It’s pretty simple when you know how.
NLP builds on your own unique-Ness (or excellence if you prefer) it combines this with the way you learn and make sense of you world to help you;

Here’s what others are saying about Tonya and her NLP Coaching;
“I was really struggling with my thought processes. I knew something had to change as I felt I was unable to cope with my life. It was a dark place. I was aware of Tonya and her work and I made contact.
After the first session I felt lighter – she had shown me some coping strategies.
After my second session I was floating – the black heaviness, the total emptiness – had gone.
After the third session I had more coping strategies.
I attended for my fourth session – I was early – I was smiling – I was happy.
We talked through how much better I was feeling. We cancelled my session.
To anyone who is struggling please get in touch with Tonya. With compassion, skill and humour, she can really help you to change your life.
Thank you Tonya 💐” A.S Whangarei, NZ
