"Silentia" is the Latin word for "silences". It describes and embraces my approach to each client. In both Spiritual Direction as well as MLNP Processing, silences are effectively used to help your brain to do the necessary processing by itself. It's no wonder that MLNP is referred to as the therapeutic counterpart of contemplative prayer!
If you look at the history of therapeutic relief, it can be classified in 4 main streams:
Multi-Level Neuro-Processing (MLNP) ™ naturally fits into this latest mainstream. Facilitators who already use this therapy form stand humbly amazed every day about the obvious positive changes in our clients' sense of feeling, their new way of thinking and their obvious changed behavior.
LNP ™ is a healing process based on well researched neuro-scientific principles. These days the world of therapy is bombarded with the latest research from the neuroscience. More discoveries are made of how the brain actually works. Neuro-science has also proven that problems that other therapies often take years to defuse, can be addressed immediately.
A simple explanation:
We now know that:
During 2018, a 78-year-old woman came to see one of our facilitators. Her husband (82 years old) was fatally shot before her eyes 3 months earlier. She could no longer sleep, go to the shops, or even sit on her veranda during the day. The picture was ingrained in her mind - she could still hear the 7 shots in her head and even smell the sulfur over and over again.
Having worked through the trauma during the first session of MLNP ™, all of the above aspects were processed in 70 minutes. When she left, she could no longer hear the shots or smell the sulfur and the intense pain in her heart was also gone.
In the follow-up session, 3 weeks later, she told us how she worked in her garden again, could sleep without taking a sleeping pill and experienced no anxiety when she went to the store. She still longs for her husband and still misses him, but the intense pain is gone!
Last year a Grade 11 learner came to see me. Maths was a big problem! She could study as hard and long as she could and work through many exam papers, but the moment she entered the examination room, she "blanked out". Suddenly she can't remember or recall anything.
After working through her anxiety in two sessions, her marks increased by 23% - enough to pass her exam. What a joy!
