Imagery can be used effectively for dealing with health issues or for transforming negative feelings into positive ones.

NLP Neurolinguistic programming sounds a bit technical! but is basically a method of
Any or all of the above ‘techniques’ can be used to formulate a plan which will tackle some of the unhelpful ways of being that we develop throughout our lives. These old thoughts, feelings and behaviours often need updating, much like we would update the software on our computers!
