On-Line and In-Person in NYC

Since 1986, The NLP Center of New York has provided individual, couple and family psychotherapy using the principles of NLP.

Steven Leeds, M.A. LMHC, NYS licensed mental health counselor, and Rachel Hott, Ph.D., NYS licensed clinical psychologist and co-directors of the NLP Center of New York provide individual and couple psychotherapy. Steven and Rachel have taught thousands of practitioners in the mental health field the skills and techniques of NLP.

While some therapies have the patient doing most of the talking, NLP Psychotherapy involves dynamic interaction between client and therapist.  The NLP approach, is solution oriented brief therapy. The emphasis is on the present moment and future outcomes, not only talking about the past.

Each interaction contains specific questions intended to provide greater insight and awareness of how we get stuck in our limiting patterns and how to get “unstuck.” Based on the answers to these questions and the presenting symptoms, we determine the appropriate NLP technique or intervention.

Our results are powerful and long lasting, but our orientation is short term.  That means that you may come for one session or several. We are flexible about frequency and duration. While some people may be interested in working on one or two very specific problems, like quitting smoking or a flying phobia, which may take a few sessions, other people may want to work with a therapist on a number of presenting concerns that may involve weeks or months.

Here are some of the most common problems that people come to us with:

  • Relationship and Family Conflicts

  • Weight Loss

  • Smoking Cessation

  • Anxiety and Stress

  • Depression and Loss

  • Occupational Stress

  • Phobias and Traumas

  • Substance Abuse and Other Addictions

  • Eating Disorders

  • Pain and Habit Control

  • Sexual Dysfunction

  • Performance Anxiety/ Stage Fright

  • Self Sabotage

  • Writer’s Block

  • Panic Attacks

  • Lack of Motivation

  • Life Transitions

  • Sexuality and Sexual Identity
