is Judy Bartkowiak and I use NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) to help parents, children and teenagers with their feelings
of low self esteem, behaviour issues and stress. Sometimes for whatever reason we find ourselves unable to cope with what
life has thrown at us and we need a helping hand.
You may have heard of NLP through work because it has been used a lot in the workplace. I
prefer to work with families and specialise in working with:
I do this is because my background in teaching and parenting, counselling and running focus
groups with children means that I find it very easy to see how NLP can make a difference.
I'm often asked when you can start using NLP as a parent.
The answer to that is during pregnancy because your baby will pick up on your state or mood and the calmer and happier you
are, the easier pregnancy and birth you will have and the more bonded you will be with your new baby.
It is during pregnancy that you and your partner will
be discussing what sort of parents you will be and who will do what, whether you want to go back to work, who will be the
main carer and so on.
Couples sometimes find these conversations bring to the surface different beliefs and values that need to be addressed.
NLP for New Mums is a great book
for this stage in your life you can buy it here
If you are
considering going back to work - NLP for Back to Work will help you sort out what you really want .
Toddlers can be exhausting and bring out the best and worst in us.
Learn how to transfer the skills
you have from your pre- children life to your life as a mum of a toddler. You have the skills you need, you just need some
help accessing them.
Children can be fascinating and demanding and you are their role model. They are learning from you everyday how
to behave, what to believe about their world, how to get on with people, how to learn and how to deal with conflict.
This is a huge responsibility and
sometimes we need a helping hand in knowing how to be the role model we want to be for them.
NLP for Parents is full of great NLP tools and techniques

to express themselves and break away from the security of the home, experiment with different ways of being and they need
to find their own way in life.
This can be pretty scary for parents and sometimes they need to talk to someone outside the home and family.
Students today are under an enormous stress to decide what they want to do, whether they want to study, take a
gap year or go straight into paid work.
It is a challenging time when they need to examine their identity, skills, discover their purpose in life. You
will be helping them but sometimes they need to talk to someone who will ask the questions that will make the difference.
NLP for Teens was written for teenagers and young people to help them with the important aspects of their life such
as exams, peer group pressure and life choices. Buy it here
