Nip Mental Issues in the Bud with NLP Coaching and Time Line Therapy


MENTAL Health is currently a hot topic across the country and has been highlighted by the Princes William and Harry who have told of the issues they faced on the death of their mother, Princess Diana.

The loss of a parent will strike everyone at some point in their lives and getting over that grief can cause chaos to the person going through the process.

But while the majority of people will, mostly, come out on the other side with treasured memories, a whole number of people suffer from issues relating to this and other challenges through their life.

Some of these issues are deep-rooted, which need extensive treatment or care as soon as they are recognized.

Yet, during Mental Health Awareness Week these past seven days, millions of people across the world have endured – and maybe not even noticed they have – a problem with their thoughts and feelings which impact on their functioning. Stress is one of these. Figures from the Health and Safety Executive show that, in 2015/16, work related stress accounted for 45 per cent of all working days lost to ill health.

But, says Dr Bridget Kirsop, an ex GP and one of Wales’ leading Neuro Linguistic Programming Trainers and Master Coaches, mild mental stresses can be eradicated very quickly.

Dr Bridget, of One Life Coaching and who has been nominated for an Online Influence award at next week’s Zokit Spring Conference in Cardiff for her work, said:

“From time to time, we all get a negative mindset and feel the stress when something happens to disturb our regular rhythm.

“We have all woken up in the middle of the night when there is something on our minds that we cannot shake off. Insomnia is a form of mental problem as much as depression, but we never think of it as such.

“Through NLP Coaching and Timeline therapy, the negatives that are stuck in our mind are taken away. A mild stress, such as being nervous about an impending job that needs to be completed, fear of failure and procrastination can be overcome quickly with NLP coaching Timeline Therapy techniques.”

And as Mental Health Awareness Week draws to a close, the legacy of the seven days and for the on-going campaign to help the public recognise how important it is to have a positive mindset when faced with difficulties is keenly felt by Dr Bridget.

She added:

“There is no stigma attached to recognising that you need some assistance to put your mind back on the right track.

“If mental stresses are left undiagnosed, even mild issues, they have a habit of increasing into more serious problems. Being pro-active and finding a highly qualified NLP Trainer, Coach and ex GP, can nip this in the bud from the outset.”
