NLP Techniques

There are hundreds of NLP Techniques or patterns that have been developed since the early 70’s. Many are variations of the core techniques created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder


The Compulsion Blowout Technique

A compulsion blowout is a submodality pattern for intense behaviors and responses you feel forced to do. Many compulsions are just trivial and don’t interfere with your life and energy, like having to straighten a crooked picture.


Association Dissociation Submodality

The association dissociation pattern is a powerful state controller. Imagine you decide to go on holidays, but need to save up first. What is more likely to get you to save money?

Threshold Patterns

Two common threshold patterns are The Compulsion Blowout Technique and The Last Straw Technique. In a way, they are the opposite of each other. With the compulsion blowout, you are accumulating positive feeling until it is unsustainable. With the last straw, you are accumulating negative experiences until you have had enough.


Time Line Therapy to Create a Brighter Future
