Using NLP For Professional Growth

Neuro-linguistic programming, is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy.  Dr. Suzanne Henwood is the author of the best-selling book NLP and Coaching for Healthcare Professionals, which demonstrates how NLP can be used in healthcare by practitioners to enhance:

  • their own practice,
  • the service delivered by the team
  • and improve patient care.

This book is fundamental for healthcare professionals at every level, within every discipline. Dr. Suzanne Henwood will be the first featured guest on The NLP View Radio Show. I found her message to be personally of great value, especially as a healthcare professional. I experienced the tremendous benefits of NLP which quickly and effectively helped me to change my own practice. For other medical professionals, the results and successes must begin by focusing on yourself.

Get Grounded!

Healthcare professionals tend to spend more time focusing on others, neglecting their own needs. In order to be effective, it is necessary to be able to address your own needs before you are in a position to truly help others.  NLP offers a series of effective communication and leadership tools. However, as the old cliche goes, “you can’t lead someone up a mountain without climbing the mountain yourself!”

Medical professionals need to address their own needs before they can effectively help their patients.
