NLP, Health & Insomnia

NLP, Health & Insomnia

Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP, was created nearly 40 years ago (by Richard Bandler, John Grinder and Frank Pucelik). It has made long been associated with high performance and success in therapy, sport, business and coaching. Some of the many famous people who have used NLP to help them include Andre Agassi, Serena Williams, Bill Clinton, Anthony Hopkins, Princes Diana, Quincy Jones, Nelson Mandela, Hugh Jackman, Greg Norman, Mikhail Gorbachev, Leonardo DiCaprio and many more. Not only famous people have used it but watered down versions of NLP are to be found in just about every management performance course (disguised under the banner of communication skills, presentation skills, stress management, leadership skills, and so on).

However the benefits of NLP in health (and general wellbeing) are not as well known. So before exploring how this links to alleviating insomnia it’s probably an opportune moment, for those who are unfamiliar with NLP, for us to define what it is. It’s also probably equally important to define what it isn’t, as the misinformation about NLP is also quite prevalent.

There are plenty of pieces of research on how effective NLP can be.

NLP is the study of how people excel in any field and how to teach these patterns to others, so they too can get the same results. This process is called modelling. These patterns, skills and techniques help to change behaviour at both a conscious and unconscious level.

NLP is not a magic bullet, a panacea for all and the route to the elixir of life. If however, the key principles (taught by trained Practitioners) are adhered to massive improvements in behaviour, skills and wellbeing can generally be achieved.

When someone has chronic insomnia they are caught in habitual behavioural patterns which are less than resourceful. We know some of them are unconscious because if they wee under our conscious control we could eradicate our insomnia just by consciously willing it away (will power). Unfortunately any change which occurs in sleeping patterns which doesn’t address the area of change at the unconscious level will invariably not be sustained.

Stress is an area which often goes hand in hand with insomnia. NLP has numerous techniques geared towards reducing stress. Depending on the particular technique that you use the stress can be localised regarding a specific issue causing stress (eg. a particular incident ) or can be generalised so you get less stressful across the board.

Used in tandem with other approaches NLP can be an important tool in helping to ensure that behavioural changes (in this case sleeping patterns) work at an unconscious level and therefore have a higher propensity of enduring.
