In the last NLP blogs, I have been talking about creating rapport with people. There are however situations where matching and mirroring might not be appropriate.
I am running an NLP Practitioner training up in Scotland at the moment – I started today. It reminded me of a previous time I had been running an NLP training in Scotland and one evening someone asked me to work with a client. The client suffered severe panic attacks at the mere thought of flying on a plane. This would clearly not be a good time to match someone else’s breathing! Matching breathing of someone with a panic attack could result in you having one also.
However, cross over mirroring provides the solutions…more about how to do this in the next blog
