NLP Submodalities

Submodalities use the basic language of the mind to change the way we encode thoughts and ideas.  By changing the submodalities, we change what that thought means, and that changes the way we feel about those things.

Submodality Techniques:

  1. Contrastive Analysis: Find the submodalities of two things and compare them to find the possible Drivers. Example: Comparing the submodalities of Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt to find the drivers.
  2. Mapping Across (Like to Dislike, Submodalities Belief Change, etc): Shifting the drivers (important submodalities) found in Contrastive Analysis to change the meaning of one internal representation to another. Example: Changing the Submodalities of Ice Cream (liked) to Frozen Yogurt (disliked) should cause the client to dislike Ice Cream.
  3. Swish Pattern: Replaces an unwanted Internal Representation with a desired one. Swish works well for changing minor states or behaviors. For example, you can use it to switch the client’s bad habit (i.e., biting nails) to a more desired one (i.e., brushing hair with fingers.)
  4. Dissociative Techniques: Shifting viewpoints and viewing an Internal Representation from a dissociated position. You can use this to to reduce the negative emotion on a memory, so a client can look at it without feeling the feelings. This works well to help clients get rid of phobias during the Phobia Model.
  5. Perceptual Positions: Shifts the Internal Representation between three empowering viewpoints:
    • First Position is looking through your own eyes.
    • Second Position is looking through another person’s eyes (usually a significant person in the event).
    • Third Position is observing the entire scene from a dissociated position (say, above the entire event as a video camera). This is useful as a Dissociative Technique and for incorporating learnings.
