Feeling stuck or overwhelmed?
Drowning under noise?
Can't see what comes ahead?
Neuro Linguistic Programming is the intentional use of your powerful imagination to create choices and get unstuck.
NLP is Neuro Linguistic Programming - the use of language and the imagination to tap into our mind's power (or to program our brains). We are empowering ourselves. Think about the times when you 'psyched yourself up' for something or when you tried to convince someone with words. At times, you may be wondering if there's a real 'technique or theory' involved in all of those. NLP provides the tools and techniques for you to use language powerfully to empower yourself and others. Read on to find out about NLP-Coaching42 - You Matter has taken up the challenge to raise funds for Centre 42 while bringing the gift of NLP to the larger community.
It's been a tough 2020 for all of us, and it's easy to look at the year ahead and think about how "everything might stay the same". When things seem out of control, when we lose sight of what we really want, or when the outside noise drowns out our inner voice, how can we stay focussed on the year ahead? How can we move forward? How can we get unstuck in life?
You Matter NLP Coaching and Training will begin this year as an ambassador for the #smallwaysC42 campaign**. This campaign aims to help sustain Centre 42 (Singapore), so that artists in Singapore can continue to have a place to grow, create, and develop. We have chosen to be a part of this because the idea of self-development and creation through the arts fits in really nicely with what we are called to do at You Matter. We believe strongly in getting people 'unstuck' through NLP, and one way to do so is to create, so that we take hold of that personal agency that belongs to us to forge a different path forward. A path that is unique to YOU and only YOU.
Personally, Centre 42 has also helped me - Darryl - a great deal to grow as the artistic director of Split Theatre. Centre 42 provided a space for Split Theatre to learn what it means to do theatre and to create in Singapore. They listened to us and gave us the room to run, jump, and explore, even though we are/were just a group of young theatre practitioners. On a larger scale of things, from a small blue house on Waterloo Street, Centre 42 has grown to be home to more than 170 artists and theatre collectives, supported the development of over 200 new theatrical projects, and brought the magic of theatre to more than 40,000 audience members. Let's help make this continue and grow!
Help us by giving to Centre 42, while we aim to provide you with the best NLP experiences and learnings ever!
Stage 1: NLP Webinar
We have conducted a webinar over zoom (15th January 2021, 8pm) and we'll be conducting another on February 16th and one more on March 23rd!
January Webinar Brief: Looking at the year ahead with the "Sameness" frame would sound like this, "It will always be this way. Things are just like that. It's always the same thing." With such a frame, we lose control over our lives. How can we use the NLP "Contrast" frame as a lens instead? How can we make a difference? You will set/refine your goals for 2021 during this webinar, so that the first steps forward are clear to you, and you'll know what resources you have and need, so as to get what you really want.
How can it be different? What is the difference that makes the difference?
Looking at the "gap" between your present state and your desired state.
Nine keys to an achievable outcome (Worksheet will be provided so that you can set/refine your year's goal during the webinar!)
Live NLP Process: Get Unstuck from that Problem Situation! (From 49:30 of Recording - use your headphones for the best experience)
For those who have missed it, here's the recording of the webinar. To protect the privacy of participants, I have recorded the entire thing separately for publishing purposes on this page:
To follow the webinar and set your personal goal for 2021, you may refer to the worksheet below - in .pdf and .docx for your convenience. The worksheet includes the key example that I have referred to in the recording as well, so you can use that example as a guide while setting your own goal - I begin referring to the worksheet at 16:25. You may also skip to 49:30 of the recording to go through the NLP process immediately.
The NLP process at 49:30 is the neurological levels alignment process that is used in NLP to explore meaning, possibility, and to create choice. Through that process, you'll use your imagination and the power of your brain to gain some clarity about a present (problem) situation. This isn't unfamiliar to us! Sportsmen and theatre practitioners etc have been using visualisation and our imaginations to push boundaries for ourselves, so that we'll be empowered to be greater and better. Use the recording to try it out!
Enjoyed the experience? Want even more? Check out the March webinar. Proceeds will be channeled to Centre 42.

Is life drowning out your inner voice? Looking for a breakthrough in your personal, professional, or artistic goals? Feeling unclear about a particular situation? Feeling stuck or overwhelmed? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, arrange for an NLP coaching session with me today! As part of this campaign, coaching sessions will not be charged. Instead, you'll donate directly to Centre 42! Book your session now.
What is NLP Coaching?
1) In that 60-90 minutes, we will begin by chatting about a problem state or situation that you are currently facing. We will also explore the desired state and outcome that you really want, highlighting resources that you currently have, resources that you need to find, and interferences that you may need to overcome.
2) We will then go through an NLP process that will help you gain clarity about your situation. Our brains work in ways that may help or go against us, and NLP processes can empower us to move forward and/or gain some learning with regards to our present situation. When you are willing to take charge of your change, the NLP process will lead you to feel more at ease with yourself. You might also be clearer about the next step to take in your previous situation.
3) We will end by crafting steps forward, so that you will be empowered to make a change and approach your desired state/outcome.
4) After your great experience with NLP coaching, we will provide you with instructions on how to give to Centre 42. You can also click here to donate to Centre 42 after booking your session.
Suggested Donation: S$42
Key Note: NLP is not magic. We are powerful as people, so if we refuse to budge, no one can make us move. You will need to take responsibility for your situation and when you decide that you want this change, you'll be unstoppable! Remember, it's not "changing" that takes time; it's "not changing" that takes time.
