My name 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.
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
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
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 for your life as a parent. If you feel your child needs some help with confidence or behaviour issues
NLP for Children is a book you can use with them to learn some useful NLP tools and techniques.
Teenagers need 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. I
teach parents, teachers and carers how to use NLP at work and at home and how to introduce it to the children in their care.
This is done through one to ones and workshops. NLP for Teachers is prooving very popular. If you want to organize a workshop at your school, contact me via my Contact page.

"My daughter's really nervous about starting her new secondary

"My son't nervous about taking his 11+ and thinks he'll
