According to the GPT-4 Chat itself: ChatGPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) is a technology developed by OpenAI that uses artificial intelligence-based language models to answer questions and perform natural language tasks. It is an advanced version of the GPT-3 model, known for its ability to generate high-quality and coherent text based on the given context.

The difference between Chat GPT-3 and GPT-4 is mainly in the learnability and complexity of the models. GPT-4 is the most recent and improved version, with a significantly more significant number of parameters, making it more powerful and capable of generating even more accurate and contextual responses. 

While GPT-3 was already able to perform impressive language tasks, GPT-4 raised the bar even higher. With more parameters and more extensive training, the GPT-4 can understand more complex nuances and provide more detailed and accurate responses. In short, GPT Chat is a technology based on AI language models that can answer questions and perform natural language tasks. The difference between GPT-3 and GPT-4 lies in the learnability and complexity of the models, making GPT-4 even more powerful and accurate in its responses. 

Can GPT-4 Chat be an auxiliary tool for therapists? 

A great challenge that I observe in new therapists and even in more experienced therapists, eventually, is the desire for a sense of security to apply their therapeutic processes, making a good reading of the case that the client brings and considering the various strategies and possibilities to work with. 

The GPT-3 Chat did not give such consistent and elaborate responses, and it did not reference the responses themselves within the chat after a certain time. When I learned about the innovations, I decided to test and simulate consulting a professional therapist within certain parameters. I know someone who was curious about the possibilities of the chat as well and was willing to do the experiment in the role of “client”, and as a psychologist, I was available to help her elaborate and deal with the responses generated by the ChatGpt if there was a need, and to explain details if the person wanted to implement the suggestions. 

The person has already taken my training courses in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and other people's, was herself a therapist, and was experiencing a challenge about her current relationship with her partner. 

My goal was to do a test based on a real case, in which a real person would provide real psychodynamics, just as she would submit to a professional therapist. Names, details, and circumstances have been changed to protect the privacy of the person who volunteered. We ended up having two meetings, where the person would access the chat with my supervision, simulating the natural process of the person's interaction with a therapist, sharing their challenges, and asking the questions she wanted as a potential client. I created a prompt so that the chat could act, just once, and didn't modify throughout the chat: 

The client would simply sit in front of the computer using the ChatGPT-4 and, as we were using the Zoom platform, she shared the screen with me while could see her image reacting to the chat. Then she forwarded me the entire chat. I had prepared the following prompt:

PROMPT (Phase 1): You are a psychologist in this chat who uses neurolinguistic programming to do therapy with your clients, including the Milton Model, Meta Model, Sleight of mouth, Dilts' Belief Approach, S.C.O.R.E. and S.O.A.R models, as well as DHE and NHR from Bandler, and I am your customer (for the person who volunteered (P) use).

 The first response from ChatGPT-4: I can certainly adopt that role for this conversation. However, please remember that while I can help you explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors using NLP principles, I am an AI and not a licensed psychologist. I am unable to diagnose or provide a professional treatment. Now how can I help you today? 

I, André Percia (AP), will comment on aspects that I consider important for our argument regarding the possible validity of the GPT chat as an auxiliary tool. I'll start by pointing out that all the time the Chat asks the person to look for a trained and qualified professional and reinforces the need for correct practices. The person, in the role of client, started the chat, and I transcribed it exactly as it happened, except for moments when I purposely, for ethical reasons, omitted personal information that would enable his identification.

Person female 47 years old (P): I always feel insecure in my relationship with my partner. I'm afraid I won't have as stable a relationship as I imagine it would be. 

GPT chat: I'm sorry you're feeling this way. Your concerns are valid and not uncommon in relationships (AP: ChatGPT defies generalization: It is not just your problem; many people may experience that).

In the context of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), we can work with the “SCORE Model” to help you better understand your feelings and thoughts. SCORE is an acronym that stands for Symptom, Cause, Result, Effect, and Feature. So, if we can apply your problem to this model: 

•  Symptom: Insecurity in the relationship 
•  Cause: Fear of not having a stable relationship (we would need to explore further to understand what could be causing this) 
•  Outcome: What do you hope to achieve by addressing this insecurity? 
•  Effect: How would this affect your life and your relationship? 
•  Resource: What resources do you currently have to meet this challenge? (This may include social support, therapies, coping strategies, etc.) I hope this helps start our discussion and explore your feelings and fears more deeply. 

André Percia's comment (AP): SCORE's analysis and timing are perfect. I, particularly, find it very valid to start with a SCORE analysis in an NLP approach, in addition to having indicated in the prompt). 

Person(P): Ask questions to help me explore the cause of the fear (AP: Accepting the suggestion to explore, as she found it interesting). 

GPT chat: Sure, let's explore that. Try to reflect on the following questions: 

1. Can you identify any specific events or experiences in the past that might have contributed to this fear? 
2. How do you define a “stable relationship”? And why does the idea of not achieving this scare you? 
3. Are there any trust issues between you and your partner? If yes, could you share a little more? 
4. Have you had negative experiences in previous relationships that may be influencing your current perception? 
5. How have you modeled relationships in your life, such as with your parents or other important peers? 

Remember that these questions are just a guide for reflection. You don't have to answer if you don't feel comfortable. GPT Chat simulates empathy and demonstrates and gives the client choice, seeming to consider what NLP considers ecology. 

AP: The GPT chat helps the client identify criteria based on psychological elements that are extremely relevant to psychology and therapy. Furthermore, relevant to the NLP SCORE and SOAR model. 

(P): He brooked our monogamy deal a few years ago, which made me feel insecure. I had already been insecure in relationships since I found myself with X (a chronic health condition, nothing that would disturb the relationship or bring any risk to her partner but messed with her selfesteem). 

After I found out about when he had sex with someone else, he seemed sincere when he said that he regretted what happened, but I can't seem to get rid of being afraid that it would happen again and I become hyper vigilant, which wears me down. He is 12 years younger than me. He fluctuates between a caring person usually and a self-centered person at other times. 

GPT chat:  Thanks for sharing more about your situation. Based on what you've told me, we can use Robert Dilts' Beliefs model to explore your limiting beliefs. This model deals with different levels of beliefs, including environment, behavior, skills, values, identity, and spirituality. 

1.   Environment: Is your environment (people, society) influencing your insecurity? 
2.   Behavior: Are there certain behaviors that are contributing to your insecurity? 
3.   Skills: Do you feel you have the skills to handle this situation (communication, assertiveness)? 
4.   Values: Does this situation conflict with your values or beliefs about relationships? 
5.   Identity: How does this situation affect the way you see yourself? 
6.   Spirituality: How does this situation align with your highest and deepest purposes? 

AP: The NLP Belief Model involves neurological levels. The chat didn't use the name but mentioned all the levels. A psychologist would not always mention theory to his client. 

ChatGPT: You mentioned that you're hyper-vigilant and that's exhausting. This hypervigilance can be a natural response to what happened and your fears. However, chronic hypervigilance can be detrimental to your mental health. It is important to remember that trust is fundamental in any relationship, and it can take time to rebuild. 

AP: Perfect psychological considerations. Interesting that the chat uses NLP, but respects psychology (my prompt) when it remembers the time for maturation, which will appear many times in this chat. ChatGPT simulates being careful and not categorical in the answers. 

GPT Chat: Finally, the age gap you mentioned can pose some challenges, especially if there are significant differences in expectations or communication. However, what is most significant is that both of you are committed to understanding and respecting each other's needs and boundaries. 

AP: Psychologically perfect, especially in a more contemporary and directive approach, where clarification of facts and issues can be brought in a process so that the client can have a bigger picture of what is going on, and this is repeated throughout the chat. 

Many therapists would ask the clients what is important in a relationship, but is common sense, I would say, to state that relationships require that people trust each other.

The customer becomes interested in the chat responses and asks:

P: What are the best ways for me to define criteria for what I'm living (AP: The client´s background as a therapist surfaced)? 

ChatGpt: Setting criteria can be a helpful part of the process of understanding and navigating your feelings and situation. Here are some ways to get started: 

1. Define what is significant to you in a relationship. What are the most significant elements for you in a relationship? This can include things like trust, honesty, open communication, respect, commitment, emotional and physical compatibility, etc. 
2. Evaluate your current relationship against these criteria: How does your current relationship align with these criteria? Where does he answer, and where does he not answer? What are the areas that need to be worked on? 
3. Identify Your Needs: What are your needs in a relationship? This can include things like a need for emotional security, a need for love and belonging, a need for respect, etc. 
4. Determine Your Boundaries: What are your boundaries in a relationship? What is acceptable and what is not? What are you willing to forgive and what is unacceptable? 
5. Set Your Expectations: What are your expectations of your partner and the relationship? Are they realistic and in line with your needs and desires? Remember, it's important to communicate these criteria, needs, boundaries, and expectations to your partner. This can be difficult, especially if you're feeling insecure, but it's an essential part of building a healthy and fulfilling relationship. 

AP: Very good in terms of criteria and psychological approach. Chat refers to what it brings to the information provided by the client, recapitulates, informs, and maintains the focus on the process, reality, and consistency of responses in the psychological process, continuing to do so throughout the chat. 

P: I communicate my expectations, and we talk about rules, we formally declare that we want a monogamous relationship, and we talk about the future. He seems to demonstrate that he loves me, but there are these selfcentered moments and I sense that he takes me for granted.

GPT chat: It's understandable that you feel this way. Open and honest communication is certainly an important step. If you've already had these conversations and agreed to a monogamous relationship, that's a good place to start. However, building trust takes time and patience, especially after it has been broken. 

As for your partner's self-centered moments, it can be helpful to use an NLP technique known as the “Meta Model”. This is a method of asking specific questions to explore and understand situations more deeply. Here are some questions you might consider: 

1.   What does it mean to you when he acts self-centered? Could you give a specific example? 
2.   When he acts this way, what does it make you feel and think? 
3.   What would you like to happen in those moments? 
4.   What prevents this from happening? 

These questions can help you clarify your needs and expectations and can provide a basis for communicating with your partner about your concerns. Remember, in any relationship, it's important to take care of yourself too. This includes looking after your mental health, maintaining activities and relationships outside your partner, and seeking professional support if needed. 

AP: The precise application of the meta-model challenging the nominalization, the clarification and psychological counseling based on what is considered useful in psychology and the psychology of relationships is appropriate. All together and in harmony! Chat maintains focus and consistency. 

P: He seems to act self-centered by focusing too much on himself and his needs. I take care of my needs, but I constantly try to think about our needs and balance them. But I'm a therapist and I know a bit of NLP and I apply it to myself, and I can't expect people to do the same. 

ChatGPT: I understand. It's difficult when there appears to be an imbalance in attention and care in a relationship. It is good that you are aware of your needs and considers those of your partner, but it is important to remember that the balance must be mutual. You have many tools at your disposal to deal with challenging situations. However, it is critical to remember that while you can control your actions and responses, you cannot control the actions and responses of others. (AP: Chat recaps, empathizes, and adds relevant information. Acknowledges but gives reality data like a psychologist would. Chat is not just pleasing and saying what the client would prefer to hear). 

GPT Chat: Considering the "Sleight of Mouth" in NLP, it may be helpful to reframe this situation for yourself in a way that allows for alternative perspectives. For example, your partner might be acting self-centered not because of lack of consideration, but because they don't have the tools or understanding to do otherwise. (AP: Applied Sleight of Mouth: Another Purpose). Open communication about your observations and feelings can be a helpful step.

 It is important to express your needs and concerns in a non-accusatory way, using first-person statements such as "I feel… " or "I notice…". In addition, it may be helpful to seek outside support. Although you have skills and knowledge in therapy and NLP, it can sometimes be helpful to have an impartial third party, such as a counselor or therapist, to navigate these issues.

P: I think about living in a stable and lasting relationship. He says he wants it too. How can I work on focusing my mind on NLP to be more confident in myself and do my part when I am away from him and worrying that what happened before will happen again? 

ChatGPT: NLP offers several techniques that can help reorient your mind towards confidence and security. Here are some approaches you might consider: 

1. Anchoring: Anchoring involves associating an emotional state, such as confidence, with physical action, such as touching your thumb and index finger together. First, you need to remember a situation where you felt confident, replaying it in your mind. Then, at the peak of that feeling of confidence, touch your thumb and index finger together. Do this numerous times until the action and feeling are strongly associated. So, when you need a confidence boost, you can do this gesture and the feeling of confidence will be activated. 
2. Positive Visualization: Visualize your partner being faithful and your relationship being strong and secure while you are away. Imagine coming home and finding everything as it should be. Do this daily to reinforce this positive image in your mind. 
3. Cognitive restructuring: This is about identifying and challenging negative thoughts. When you catch yourself thinking that something bad is going to happen while you're away, challenge that thought. What evidence do you have that this is true? Are there other possible explanations? 
4. Positive Affirmations: Affirmations are positive statements that you repeat to yourself to instill a positive mindset. You can create confidencebuilding affirmations such as "I am worthy of a secure and faithful relationship" or "I trust my partner and the strength of our relationship." 
5. Milton Model: The Milton Model of NLP, which uses hypnotic and suggestive language, can be helpful. For example, you might say to yourself "You might be surprised at how secure you can feel knowing that you've done everything in your power to nurture your relationship by allowing yourself to trust your partner."

Remember, these are just tools to support your mindset and emotions. They are not a substitute for open communication and working together in a relationship. 

AP: Here Chat provides NLP strategies for possible personal use or treatment. Very useful for a therapist or coach, but the client said she understood therapy and NLP, so the chat seems to have used this for the possibility of self-help using resources available to her. Chat seems to assume that the client only needs to set herself to feel better, and although it is important, I don´t think it´s so simple. A therapist could sense the client´s need to establish evidence that the partner is consistent with a monogamous relationship and help her develop specific criteria to identify it as well as resources to act upon she would want to do.

P: How can I work on the value of my values regardless of what he does or doesn't do? 

ChatGPT:  Strengthening your sense of self-worth and self-worth, regardless of the actions of others, is an important aspect of self-care and mental health. Here are some ways to work on the value of your values using NLP: 

1.                 Identifying Values: First, identify your core values. What are the most significant things for you in life? This can be things like integrity, honesty, loyalty, authenticity, respect, etc. 
2.                 Anchoring: Use the anchoring technique (mentioned earlier) to associate a sense of pride and worth with physical action. Think of times when you really lived up to your values and felt good about yourself. Anchor those feelings to a specific action, so you can access that feeling of self-worth whenever you need it. 
3.                 Positive Affirmations: Use positive affirmations that reinforce the value of your values. For example, you might say to yourself "I value integrity and am proud to live up to that value" or "My values are essential to me, and I honor them in all my actions". 
4.                 Visualization: Visualize yourself living up to your values, regardless of what others are doing. Imagine yourself feeling strong, secure, and confident in your skin. 
5.                 Cognitive Reframe: If you find negative thoughts about yourself or your values, challenge those thoughts. What evidence do you have that these thoughts are true? Are there other ways of looking at the situation? Over time, as you constantly reinforce the value of your values, you will begin to feel a greater sense of self-worth and self-worth, regardless of the actions of others. 

AP: The client continued to be surprised and touched by the response provided by the chat, as I followed and calibrated her physiology and asked if she could report dreams that she found relevant. The chat generated elaboration and promoting insights. I encouraged her to continue interacting as if Chat were a therapist. 

P: I also have recurring dreams where everything is falling apart. I'm getting lost, I don't know where I am anymore, I don't even have the resources like a car, money, or telephone to get out of growing chaos until I can't find anywhere to go and feel anguished and bad, often waking up at that time with these feelings. 

ChatGPT: Recurring dreams are typically a reflection of worries, fears, or unresolved issues in one's life (AP: Dreams are more than that, and sometimes none of that, but I think maybe the chat said they were because that was relevant in the case of the person). In your case, dreams of being lost and feeling without resources could represent feelings of insecurity, anxiety, or lack of control in some area of your life. To dream that everything is falling apart or falling into chaos could be a sign that you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed, perhaps because of fears in your relationship or other worries in your life. Lack of resources (such as a car, money, or telephone) in your dreams could be a metaphor for feeling helpless or unable to solve a problem in your life. That these dreams are recurring indicates there is an ongoing issue that likely needs to be addressed. Therapy, particularly with a professional versed in dream interpretation, can clarify and work with these dreams and the feelings they bring. Remember that dream interpretation is not an exact science and interpretations can vary greatly depending on the individual context. These are just a few possibilities of what your dreams might represent based on the description you provided. 

AP: Perfect. I would consider an interpretation along the same lines. I liked the care, ethics, referring as always, and the need to seek qualified professionals. 

P: Tell me what another type of recurring dream could mean: My beloved cats get lost, and I feel unable to control them and keep them safe, which causes me great distress. Occasionally, I find that they are not where they should be and are lost or forgotten. Including dogs that I had and have already died; I find that I was careless and forgot them, and they are in pain because of it. 

ChatGPT: Dreams are an expression of our worries, fears, hopes, and experiences. Recurring dreams about losing or being unable to protect your cats could symbolize feelings of fear of loss, guilt, or helplessness in some aspect of your life. Here are some possible interpretations: 

1.                 Fear of Loss: Dogs and cats are often seen as family members and can represent loved ones in our dreams. Dreaming of losing your dogs could be a manifestation of your fear of losing people you love or important aspects of your life. 
2.                 Feelings of Guilt: That in dreams you typically find that you have forgotten your dogs, and they are suffering, which could represent feelings of guilt or worries that you have failed in some responsibility in your life. 
3.                 Feelings of Powerlessness: Being unable to control or protect your cats can represent feelings of powerlessness, or loss of control in your life. This could be related to relationship issues, health issues, or other major concerns.
4.                 Dealing with Death: If these dreams typically involve cats that have passed away, this could be a way of dealing with grief and loss. It can be a way of expressing the remorse or sadness you still feel over the loss of these pets. Again, dream interpretations are highly personal and depend on individual context. Working with a therapist can help you explore the meaning of these dreams in a safe and supportive environment. 

AP: The client not only has relationship insecurities but has a childhood history of the family giving away beloved pets because they needed to move and were unable to take them, which generated trauma for her, so she shared it with me (AP). Furthermore, the person's father passed away suddenly a few years ago, and she doesn't feel they are completely over the grief, and nothing of this was mentioned by the client in the chat!

P: What is the best plan to work on my issues to develop the self-esteem and emotional intelligence competency to be an integral part of my NLP framework in one month? 

ChatGPT: To develop self-esteem and emotional intelligence through NLP in one month, you can follow a structured plan like this: 

Week 1: Self-awareness 
1.                 Identify your core values: Make a list of your most important values and principles and consider how they manifest in your actions. 
2.                 Assess your limiting beliefs: Identify the beliefs that are preventing you from increasing your self-esteem and emotional intelligence. 
3.                 Anchoring: Anchor the positive feelings associated with your values. Do this daily. 

Week 2: Self-acceptance and self-respect 
1.                 Positive Affirmations: Create affirmations that reinforce self-acceptance, self-respect, and self-love. Repeat these affirmations daily. 
2.                 Visualization: Visualize yourself acting in accordance with your values, accepting and respecting yourself. 
3.                 Cognitive restructuring: Challenge any negative thoughts or beliefs that arise. 

Week 3: Empathy and emotional understanding 
1.                 Practice empathy: Try to put yourself in the shoes of others to understand their feelings and perspectives. 
2.                 Emotional Intelligence: Learn to identify and express your emotions in a healthy way. Furthermore, identify the emotions of others. 
3.                 Practice active listening: Practice listening carefully to others, without interrupting or judging. 

Week 4: Autonomy and Self-confidence 
1.                 Set personal goals: Set goals that are aligned with your values and help you increase your self-esteem and emotional intelligence. 
2.                 Make Positive Affirmations: Create and repeat affirmations that boost your confidence. 
3.                 Visualization: Visualize yourself achieving your goals and acting with confidence and autonomy. Remember that personal development is an ongoing process, and it's normal not to see drastic changes in a short period of time. Be patient with yourself and acknowledge every little progress along the way. This plan serves as a guide and can be adapted to your individual needs. 

AP: Chat created a strategy, that is useful in counseling, directive therapy, and coaching. Coherent, consistent with the client, tying everything into the order that was placed. The client asked for a strategy in one month, and from a psychological and NLP perspective, it is perfectly congruent and applicable in the way it was proposed. The chat used easy words to suggest complex things for any customer to understand. An experienced NLP Master or Trainer could use several NLP patterns to fulfill all the suggestions.

P: Based on everything I've shared in this chat, describe me psychologically. 

ChatGPT: Based on what you've shared, you seem to be a highly selfreflective and conscientious person. You exhibit a capacity for introspection, able to identify and articulate your feelings, fears, and concerns in a clear and articulate way. You also demonstrate an advanced understanding of psychological techniques and concepts, as is evident in your familiarity with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and your ability to apply it to your own personal development. 

You have expressed feelings of insecurity and anxiety, especially regarding your relationship and your health status. These concerns seem to have impacted your self-esteem and confidence and led to the development of limiting beliefs. Moreover, you mentioned recurring dreams that seem to reflect feelings of loss of control, powerlessness, and fear of loss. These dreams suggest that you may be dealing with underlying stress or anxiety in your life. 

Despite these difficulties, you have also demonstrated a willingness to actively work to improve your emotional and mental well-being. You have shown a proactive attitude towards personal growth and change, expressing a desire to increase your self-esteem and emotional intelligence. Finally, it is important to stress that while text analysis can provide some insights, it cannot replace a thorough psychological assessment conducted by a qualified professional. 

AP: At that moment, the client got emotional, cried, and had several insights, managed to feel perfectly understood, and said that everything made perfect sense. I (AP) found all the psychological considerations quite appropriate, placed with care, empathy, in language appropriate to a person in a therapy process, maintaining a sense of ethics by reaffirming that he does not replace a psychology professional. All of this was on a date. The person experienced a torrent of insights and emotions triggered by their interaction with the chat. Now she was curious and eager to benefit more and more from what the chat could do for her, motivated by the interaction. 

P: Do you believe that I can be happy? How can a person build emotional happiness with emotional balance and emotional intelligence? What is the secret for someone to be happy with congruence? What to practice thanks to NLP? 

ChatGPT: Yes, I believe that everyone has the potential to find happiness, and that includes you. Emotional happiness, emotional balance, and emotional intelligence are all components that can be mutually reinforcing. Here are some suggestions on how you can work to build each one of them, thanks to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): 

1.                 Self-awareness and acceptance: Understanding your feelings and accepting them is the first step. This involves recognizing emotions as they arise and accepting that each emotion is valid and has a purpose, even if it is uncomfortable. NLP techniques such as anchoring and modeling can help increase self-awareness. 

2.                 Emotion management: Once you recognize your emotions, the next step is to learn how to manage them effectively. This does not mean suppressing negative emotions but learning to respond to them in a healthy way. Cognitive restructuring, an NLP technique, can be helpful here. 

3.                 Empathy and Social Skills: Emotional intelligence also involves understanding the emotions of others and responding effectively. Practicing empathy and active listening skills can help strengthen your social relationships, which are an important part of happiness. 

4.                 Goal setting and personal fulfillment: Setting and achieving personal goals that align with your values and interests can bring a sense of purpose and fulfillment, key components of happiness. Visualization, another NLP technique, can be helpful for this.  

5.                 Self-care: Remember to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally. This could include getting regular exercise, eating healthy, making sure you're getting enough sleep, practicing relaxation techniques, and seeking support when needed. 

6.                 Appreciation and gratitude: Finally, cultivating gratitude and learning to appreciate the little things in life can have a powerful impact on happiness. Practicing gratitude regularly has been linked to an increase in happiness and life satisfaction. Remember, happiness is not a constant state, but a series of moments. It's normal to experience a range of emotions, including ones that are uncomfortable. The secret is to learn to navigate these emotions in a healthy way and find joy and satisfaction wherever you can. 

AP: I was very satisfied (considering psychology, NLP, hypnosis) with the responses, directivity, congruence with NLP and directive therapies, consistency with the client's reality and the structuring of a directive strategy, which can be useful in long-term therapies, brief and focal therapies, coaching, etc.

Remember, repeating these affirmations regularly can reinforce your positive thinking and help build healthy self-esteem. However, it is significant that these affirmations be congruent with your values and feelings for them to be effective.

P: What you wrote here helped me a lot and gave me many insights. I will record, for example, the affirmations to listen to and repeat many times.

ChatGPT:

I am so happy to hear that I was able to help and that you found value in affirmations. Using them as a recording is an excellent idea, as it allows you to engage with them regularly and at times that are most convenient and relaxing for you. Continuing to practice them can help internalize these positive and transformative messages. Remember, change takes time and consistency, so be kind to yourself in this process. I'm here for any support or additional information you may need.

I am delighted to hear that you found value in the conversation we had and the strategies we discussed. NLP concepts and techniques can be powerful in helping people understand their emotions, develop self-confidence, overcome obstacles, and achieve their goals. Regular and consistent practice of these techniques can lead to significant changes over time. If you have any further questions or require additional information, please don't hesitate to ask. I am here to help.

P: ❤

ChatGPT: I'm glad I could help. Remember, I'm always here if you require further assistance or have any further questions. Take care!

AP: The client was feeling very well after the interaction with ChatGpt, with many ideas, saying that she was willing and truly wanted to put all that into practice. Some strategies take time. She said she felt better about her selfesteem in a single encounter and felt more able to act to resolve the personal issues she brought up. She said this interaction was better and more effective than many therapy sessions she has done with people in the past.

SECOND MEETING:

AP: We did not anticipate having a second meeting before. However, the person insisted on continuing the process as the interaction opened the door to important insights and questions, and she told me that she wanted to go deeper into some issues even though she was feeling much better already. We used the same chat, and she made new entries.

We repeated the same settings: Zoom, shared screen, etc.

P: There is an internal struggle inside me. On the one hand, this week, after our interaction here, I have been feeling much stronger confident with a substantial improvement in self-esteem on the other hand, I think I have a meta program that makes me emphasize a lot of what could go wrong, also because other things have gone wrong in the past, and although I like to be feeling much less emotionally dependent on the other hand, I'm still paying close attention to what could go wrong, this generates a certain conflict of discomfort in me.

ChatGPT: 

The internal struggle you are describing is a very common phenomenon when trying to change established patterns of thought and behavior. NLP calls this conflict “parts”. A part of you is embracing the change and feeling the benefits of confidence and self-esteem, while another part is still stuck in the pattern of focusing on what could go wrong, likely as a form of selfdefense or self-preservation.

Working with these “parts” can be an important aspect of the change process. “Parts Integration” is an NLP technique that aims to resolve this type of internal conflict. The goal is to get the internal parts that are in conflict to find a way to work together for the greater good of the entire system. This usually involves acknowledging and accepting that all parties mean well, even if their actions may be problematic.

An example of how you can do this is to have an internal dialogue with the part of you that worries about what could go wrong. Recognize that part is trying to protect you and be grateful for it. Then ask if there is another way, she can help achieve the goal of protection without creating anxiety and discomfort.

This process can take time, and it can be helpful to do this with the guidance of a trained NLP practitioner. Meanwhile, continue to strengthen the part of you that is growing in confidence and self-esteem, and know that it's normal to have ups and downs throughout the process of change.

AP: Chat remains framed as an NLP therapist and approaches conflicts from an NLP perspective by suggesting the idea and process of integrating parts, but was creative in adapting the process more easily for a client, including using maneuvers consistent with reframing in six steps and integration of unconscious elements, in addition to working on the propulsion system in NLP, which is working on building what you want while deconstructing what you no longer want.

P: Based on all our interactions since the beginning of this chat, what is your perspective on these conflicting parts that could be working within me in detail?

ChatGPT:

Based on our conversation, it appears that there are two main warring parts of you.

The first part is motivated by growth, change, and self-reflection. This is the part that is benefiting from NLP practices, recognizing, and challenging limiting beliefs, and working to build self-confidence and emotional independence. This part has shown resilience and courage in facing challenges and continuing to strive to develop in a healthy way.

The second part seems to be anchored in experiences and concerns about possible future problems. That part seems to be trying to protect you from being hurt again by focusing on possible negative outcomes and mistakes. There may be a hypervigilance aspect here, possibly a coping mechanism that has been helpful in the past in difficult situations.

These parts seem to be at odds with each other - one is geared towards change and growth, while the other is trying to keep you safe but possibly limiting your progress and causing emotional discomfort.

Integrating these parts would involve working to recognize and validate the good intentions of both while looking for ways for them to work together for your highest good. This may involve helping the concerned part find new ways to contribute to its safety and well-being that are more in line with its growth-oriented part.

AP: Simply accurate and consistent with psychology, NLP, and the client's reality.

P: In your view, what might be the common values superior to these two parts in Robert Dilts's process of integrating limiting beliefs? He suggests that the solution may lie in focusing on higher-order values to create a common vision between the parts. Based on what I've said here what can be built in that direction in a guided work for parts integration?

AP: The client knew about the technique and already wanted to be precise about how the chat could help her.

ChatGPT

In Robert Dilts' belief integration approach, finding a common superior value is a key aspect. This common higher value serves as a kind of “goal” that both parts can accept and work towards. This helps turn conflict into collaboration.

Based on our conversation, a top value that seems important to both parties might be "safety." Your growth-oriented part seeks security through developing confidence, self-esteem, and emotional independence. The concerned part is also trying to achieve security, but it does so by preventing possible errors or problems.

Another value that can be common to both parts is “authenticity”. Both parts seem motivated by a desire to be true to themselves and live up to their needs and values. The growth-oriented part seeks authenticity by becoming more emotionally independent, while the worried part may be trying to maintain authenticity by avoiding situations that could lead to pain or disappointment.

Focusing on these common values and developing a shared vision that allows both parties to achieve these values can be an important step toward bringing parts together.

AP: An NLP therapist would ask the client to identify the values for himself, and I do believe it would be better if that answer could emerge from the client himself. However, the client asked the chat to identify common values and what to do, and I think the chat did an excellent job very consistently with the case presented, and the customer was very satisfied. Maybe a prompt could be added to help the person to find hir or her answer when facing this kind of situation. 

P: Outline a therapeutic strategy based on linguistic programming: a path to follow so that I can experience progress in my goals integrating these parts beyond the technique a series of external and internal processes acting on all neurological levels considering SCORE models so that I can overcome all these challenges.

AP: I helped the client formulate this question, as she was highly motivated to follow all the suggested steps and our experiment had a limit. I volunteered to monitor and do sessions to help implement what was suggested.

ChatGPT

Creating a personalized NLP-based therapy plan to integrate these parts involves several steps. Here is an example of how it could be:

1.                 Goal Setting: Start by clarifying your goals and what you would like to achieve through therapy. You've already mentioned that you'd like to overcome codependency, improve self-esteem, and achieve emotional balance, so it's important to define what these terms mean to you and how you'll know when you've achieved them.

2.                 Self-Awareness and Acceptance: Before you can work on changing your thinking and behavior patterns, you need to be aware of them and accept them as part of who you are. This may involve practicing mindfulness and keeping a journal to record your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

3.                 Working with Parts: Use part-integration techniques to help resolve the conflict between the part of you that wants to grow and change and the part of you that is focused on avoiding mistakes and protecting yourself. As mentioned earlier, this involves finding a common value that both parts can align with.

4.                 Development of Inner Resources: Use NLP techniques to help develop the inner resources you need to reach your goals. This can include skills such as self-confidence, resilience, emotional intelligence, and the ability to handle stress.

5.                 Reframing and Changing Limiting Beliefs: Use reframing techniques to help change the way you view certain situations or aspects of yourself that may be contributing to your low self-esteem or codependency. This may also involve identifying and changing limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from reaching your goals.

6.                 SCORE Model: Use the NLP SCORE (Symptoms, Causes, Results, Effects, Resources) model to help you understand and work through specific problems you are facing. This involves identifying the symptoms of the issue, understanding its causes, defining the desired outcome, considering the effects of achieving that outcome, and identifying the resources needed to get there.

7.                 Practice and Reinforcement: NLP is practice, and you must take the time to practice and reinforce the new skills and coping strategies you are learning.

Remember, this is a process that takes time and requires patience and selfcompassion. It is significant to have the support of a trained NLP professional during this process to ensure that you are using the techniques correctly and getting the maximum benefit from them.

AP: Chat knew that the client knew a little NLP and seems to have assumed that she would know what to do, as it did not go into details on how to do it but set up a congruent and consistent strategy based on NLP which could last several sessions. The framework was given at the beginning of the chat and with the reality of the client. Chat suggests mindfulness and thins which I would rather check with the client if it were ecological or not for her.

P: What might be a mature view on security and authenticity such as you suggested in a way that both conflicting parties feel truly cared for because the suffering part has expectations of security and authenticity by repeating patterns that are not the best, so how really satisfy in a way that contemplates both parts?

ChatGPT:

In the context of this internal conflict, a mature vision of security and authenticity can be achieved by integrating the concerns of both parties in a more balanced and healthy way.

Security: Emotional security is a fundamental need. However, absolute security is unattainable, as life is inherently uncertain. A mature perspective on security involves accepting and dealing with this uncertainty rather than trying to avoid it altogether. This doesn't mean ignoring risks or potential problems but finding healthier and more productive ways to deal with them. This may involve building resilience, strengthening your problemsolving skills, and learning to regulate your emotions more effectively.

Authenticity: Authenticity involves being true to yourself, which includes recognizing and accepting your needs, desires, and feelings. However, being authentic does not mean following impulses or desires without considering the consequences. A mature perspective on authenticity involves balancing self-understanding and self-determination with responsibility and consideration for others. This can mean recognizing that your needs and desires may change and that you have the power to choose how to respond to them in a way that honors your values while respecting those of others.

By adopting these mature perspectives on safety and authenticity, you can begin to reconcile the conflicting parts of yourself. The part of you that seeks growth can be encouraged by the security of knowing that you have the resilience and skills to deal with uncertainty, and the part of you that seeks protection can take comfort in knowing that you are acting authentically. is responsible.

AP: Again, the chat gives an answer that could emerge from the client. A therapist could use the answer as an example of what a client could do in a situation like that. Chat or therapists shouldn´t decide for the client. 

The client asked me to apply a process of integrating parts, and I decided to apply the process of integrating parts with conflicting beliefs based on Robert Dilts, however, some questions came up in the process, and she decided to submit to the GPT Chat.

P: When doing the process of integrating parts, I realized that the part that seeks security wants to become the other part, but it is still very attached to immature forms and focused on scarcity values, that is, it is difficult and complicated because of the other losses and all that was discussed before. It's like that part of me that suffers has become accustomed to satisfying critical things through controlling and monitoring my partner. The reason is easy to process, but how do I effectively make the change via NLP? Because there is no difficulty in understanding. There is a difficulty in getting out of that comfort zone or principle of familiarity.

ChatGPT:

Making profound changes in our lives often involves stepping out of our comfort zones, which can be challenging. However, NLP provides a variety of tools and techniques that can facilitate this process.

1.                 Cognitive restructuring: Cognitive restructuring is a technique that helps change negative or self-destructive thinking patterns. It involves identifying and challenging negative thoughts and replacing them with more positive or realistic thoughts.

2.                 Anchoring: Anchoring is a technique that helps create a connection between a specific stimulus and a specific emotional response. For example, you can create an anchor that helps evoke feelings of confidence or calm when you feel unsure or stressed.

3.                 Visualization: Visualization is a technique that helps you create a mental picture of how you would like to be or how you would like a situation to unfold. This can help boost your confidence and motivation to make the necessary changes.

4.                 Modelling: Modelling is a technique that involves observing and imitating the behavior of others who have already achieved what you want to achieve. This can help give you a clear picture of what's possible and what's needed to reach your goals.

5.                 Swish Pattern: This NLP technique is designed to change unwanted behavior into desired behavior. You view the unwanted behavior and the desired behavior, then “slide” the image of the unwanted behavior to the side, replacing it with the image of the desired behavior. This is repeated until the desired behavior becomes the automatic response.

6.                 Dilts Belief Change: This NLP model focuses on changing limiting beliefs. It involves identifying the limiting belief, challenging it, and replacing it with an enabling belief.

Remembering that this whole process can be improved thanks to a qualified NLP professional, who can guide you through these techniques and provide support and feedback along the way.

AP: Chat remains brilliant at being consistent with the client and accurate in the details of her and NLP and her techniques and approaches. More questions arose while I was applying the technique to the client, and we brought the GPT Chat to participate once again:

P: I'm talking to the part that seeks security and explaining to that part that the best way for it to really feel secure is to work as it's being suggested because the parameters it has learned to feel secure are doomed or failure. The part expects rigid standards that can never be met and seeks a result in ways that cannot be achieved. So, she's doomed to disappointment in terms of security… so the solution is true maturation, emotional independence, and a sense of being in a relationship by choice. This is the best security of all and can bring true freedom and a sense of well-being.

AP: The client is now having multiple insights; she was very emotional and felt that something was being worked on deeply. I must stress that the answers from the Chat had an impact on her as I could calibrate, not just the pattern I was using.

ChatGPT:

It sounds like you are making significant progress in working with your inner parts (AP: Reinforcement, feedback, acknowledging client feelings and responses). That's right, the security-seeking part can learn to adapt to new parameters that are healthier and more realistic. One approach that could work here would be to redefine what security means to that part of you (AP: sleight of mouth, meaning reframing: Another outcome).

Instead of associating security with controlling all situations or avoiding all possible threats, which is an impossible and exhausting task, you can start to associate security with your ability to deal with adversity. In other words, instead of trying to predict and control the future, which is uncertain and ever-changing, you can focus on building resilience, self-confidence, and self-esteem. This involves believing in your ability to face challenges, learn from mistakes, and recover from difficulties.

Regarding authenticity, this involves being comfortable with who you are, accepting yourself with all your strengths and weaknesses, and living up to your values, even if that sometimes means coming into conflict with others or facing criticism. 

One way to do this with NLP would be through modeling, identifying people who possess the traits you want (such as self-confidence and authenticity), and observing how they think, feel, and behave in different situations. You can also use techniques like anchoring to help evoke feelings of trust and authenticity in yourself.

Remember, this is a process and may take some time. But every small step you take towards these goals is a victory and something to be proud of.

AP: The ChatGpt continues with excellence suggesting work with mentors, motivating, being empathetic, recapping and reinforcing positive changes, consistent with NLP, and work involving directive psychology and psychological counseling. The approach seems to suit the client in question. Although I believe a therapist should present possibilities for the client to decide what to do. The client asked the chat to provide solutions, and it did. 

P: The process that I manifest has a part that observes these other two parts (AP: Dilts technique that I was applying) and helps to reconcile the problem. I think a dissociation took place within me (AP: The client and I were discussing these issues, but she wanted to submit to the chat) because there is no intellectual opposition or arguments against the change I want to make. In fact, it's like I'm using the part that would like to develop and want to get well to do a bunch of things and all the other emotional issues, have a love life, etc. I feel that I am using old strategies and the issue is this dissociation, as there is no argument to change from any of the parties.

AP: She wasn't asking questions, but Chat continued to be consistent in the interaction providing a consistent statement after her statement, very much like what would happen in a therapeutic session.

ChatGPT:

I understand that you are struggling with this dissociation (AP: Recapitulation, Nurture, Empathy), where parts of you seem to be working in separate spheres rather than together. This is quite common when we are trying to change ingrained thought and behavior patterns, as it is as if there is an internal inertia that resists change, even when we understand intellectually what needs to be done.

The important thing is to remember that all parts of you - even those that seem to be working against your goals - are doing the best they can with the tools and understanding they have (AP: Applying an NLP presupposition). They are trying to protect you and keep you safe in ways they have learned in the past that may no longer be helpful or healthy (AP: Pure NLP concept).

One way to approach this is to begin creating a more loving and compassionate internal dialogue with these parts of you (AP: I asked in Bandler's Initial DHE and NHR prompt, and these approaches do a lot of work on the internal dialogues and submodality representations). Rather than seeing the part of you that is resisting change as a problem, you can see it as a part of you that is sacred and needs understanding and comfort (AP: Reframing, NLP verbal sleight of mouth). You can start asking that part what it needs to feel safe and listen to the answer with an open mind and loving heart (AP: pure NLP in many ways going through positive intentions, reframing, etc.).

As you create this internal dialogue of love and compassion, you can begin to find ways to meet the needs of these parts in a way that aligns with your larger goals (AP: Positive Intention Aligned with Higher Purposes, Dilts' View). And, over time, those parts can begin to trust their observing part more and allow it to guide them into new ways of thinking and behaving (AP: This is where meta states, meta position, and other important NLP concepts come in. Each strategy is adequate and consistent with everything already offered by Chat).

Remember to be kind and patient with yourself during this process. Profound changes don't happen overnight, and it's okay to feel uncomfortable or confused at times. This is part of the growing up process.

AP: Chat ends with empathy, support, care, congruence with NLP, therapeutic process, and psychology and continues into the psychological counseling process consistent with the client's level of understanding.

P: What would be some specific steps for the suffering part to start allowing itself to do things other than just arguments because it understands arguments and that specific steps can redirect on Dilts neurological levels. How to align all this and how to take the next steps and others after these first ones?

ChatGPT:

This is a journey of self-discovery and growth (AP: Nominalization in the Milton Model), and I congratulate you for taking it on (AP: Reinforcement, empathy, encouragement to move forward in the process, and Milton Model`s presupposition). Here are some specific steps you can take based on NLP and other therapeutic approaches:

(AP: Chat works on all neurological levels and suggests strategies on all of them):

1.                 Identity: Start by reassessing your identity in relation to this part that is suffering. Instead of identifying yourself as a person who suffers, start seeing yourself as someone who is learning and growing (AP: Sleight of Mouth). This might involve affirming to yourself, "I am a person who is becoming stronger and more resilient every day."

2.                 Beliefs and Values: Work on reassessing your limiting beliefs. This may involve questioning the validity of these beliefs and replacing them with more empowering beliefs. For example, you can replace the belief that "things will always go wrong" with "I can handle whatever challenge comes my way" (AP: Verbal reframing and sleight of mouth).

3.                 Skills: Acquire and practice new skills that help you deal with grief in healthier ways. This may involve learning emotion regulation techniques such as deep breathing or meditation.

4.                 Behaviors: Start implementing new behaviors that align with your new identity and beliefs. For example, if you identify as a resilient person, you might start acting like one, facing challenges instead of avoiding them (AP: Acting Like “as if” in NLP).

5.                 Environment: Investigate how to create an environment that supports your growth and change. This might involve seeking support from friends and family, seeking therapy, or coaching, or creating a physical environment that is calm and welcoming.

These are just a few initial steps. Each person is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. The key is to experiment with different approaches and find what works best for you.

Remember, change is a process, and it takes time. Be kind to yourself along the way.

AP: The ChatGPT continues with empathy, acceptance, and practices flexibility (NLP presupposition besides aligning the neurological levels).

P: I've completed the part integration process, and I'm feeling great. In the first moment, the part that suffered before now made another sense of it all in terms of meaning. At first, there was a sense of threat, but immediately the other parts came to help, both the one watching and the other part that wanted growth, and finally, I proceeded lightly to integrate the three parts. I integrated the three parts (AP: I used Bandler's NeuroHypnotic Repatterning) and I got an excellent feeling of well-being and I feel different for the better. I feel that I have taken a critical step, and now I am feeling exceptional, very positive energy, and exceptional motivation, it was splendid.

AP: The client was very emotional, and my calibration confirmed a different physiological state and expressions, energetic, smiling, and seemed to be feeling great).

ChatGPT:

This is wonderful! Congratulations on your progress and the courage to face your inner issues and work to resolve them (AP: Reinforcement, Encouragement, Empathy). NLP and techniques such as integrating parts can be powerful tools for personal transformation.

Now, a good next step might be to consolidate these positive feelings and this new perspective. Here are some suggestions:

1.   Revisit Your Affirmations: Now that you feel different, your affirmations may need to be updated. Revisit them to see if they still align with your current self.

2.   Gratitude Practice: Start or continue a gratitude practice. This can be as simple as writing down three things you are grateful for every day. This helps reinforce positive feelings and helps build resilience.

3.   Set new goals: With this new perspective

4.   Set New Goals: With this new perspective and energy, it might be a good time to set new goals for yourself. These could be goals related to your emotional health, relationships, career, hobbies, or any other area that is important to you.

5.   Continue mindfulness practice: Even after great advances, it's significant to maintain practices like full attention to help maintain emotional balance.

Remember, this is an ongoing process, and every small step is a victory. Congratulations again on the work you have been doing!

AP: ChatGPT continues congruently with the client, with NLP, and with you, proposing consolidation strategies without being asked, which I find very appropriate.

P: I'm grateful to you too. Thank you for existing.

ChatGPT:

I'm pleased to be able to help you. It is a pleasure to be part of your journey of growth and self-discovery (AP: Nominalization, reframing). Remember that I am here for you whenever you need me. Continue forward with confidence and courage (AP: more nominalization).

P: Would you be able to come up with a hypnotic script or script with NLP based on everything you are suggesting I do in terms of growth and development? I agree with everything, and I want all of this I really like listening to hypnotic inductions, and André offered to record an induction for me. Could you please create a script for me so that all of this is absorbed by my subconscious mind?

ChatGPT:

I would certainly be happy to help create a hypnosis script using NLP techniques to assist in your growth and development. Before we begin, it's important to note that hypnosis and NLP are powerful practices that can have significant effects on the brain and body. They should always be practiced safely and responsibly, preferably with the guidance of a trained professional.

Script for Hypnotic Induction:

1.     Initialization and Relaxation:

"Close your eyes and begin to pay attention to your breathing. Take a deep breath, fill your lungs with fresh air, and slowly exhale, releasing all tension in your body. With each breath, you feel calmer, more relaxed, and more present in the world. Imagine a wave of relaxation running through your body, starting at your feet, and slowly rising to the top of your head. With each breath, this wave of relaxation becomes stronger, helping you to feel calmer, more centered, and more relaxed. "

AP: Knowledge of hypnotic inductions and elements of the Milton Model)

2.     Visualization:

"Now, imagine yourself in a safe and comfortable place. It could be a place you know, like your bedroom or a beach you like, or it could be a completely imaginary place. In that place, you feel safe, secure, and completely at ease. Take some time to explore this place in your mind, noticing the details, the colors, the sounds, the smells."

AP: Access to the safety feature in reference to experiences, as suggested by NLP.

3.     Suggestions:

"As you explore this safe place, you begin to perceive a bright light in the distance. This light represents your ideal self, the version of yourself that is in balance, that takes care of itself, that sets healthy boundaries, and that seeks knowledge and development. You walk towards the light, and as you get closer, you begin to feel more confident, stronger, and more centered. You realize that you have everything you need to achieve your goals and become this ideal version of yourself. yourself."

AP: Chat uses metaphors, symbolism, submodalities, Milton Model, etc.

4.     Affirmations:

"Now I'm going to say some affirmations. As you hear these affirmations, allow them to become a part of you, allow them to guide your thoughts, your actions, your life.

I am capable. I'm strong. I am enough. I take care of myself. I set healthy boundaries. I seek knowledge and development. I have everything I need to reach my goals. I'm this ideal version of myself."

5. Finalization:

"When you're ready, start bringing your attention back to the present. Remember that a feeling of calm, confidence, of strength is always available to you. All you need to do is close your eyes and breathe. When you are ready, ready, open your eyes and go back to your day, taking that feeling of calm, confidence, strength with you."

Remember, this script is just a suggestion. Customize it to your needs and always practice hypnosis and NLP safely and responsibly. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to a trained professional.

AP: Excellent draft for a script, congruent with the project that Chat created and with the client.

Modelling THE GPT CHAT

I asked GPT Chat to let me know where it got its directions to respond, and got the following response:

AP: Can you please provide me with the bibliographic references that you used for all your arguments involving dealing with psychological and emotional issues in this chat?

ChatGpt:

As an artificial intelligence model, I don't use bibliographic references in the same way a human would when writing an article or report. The information I share is based on the vast dataset OpenAI used to train me, which includes a wide variety of knowledge sources, including books, websites, and other educational materials.

However, I can mention some materials and authors that are wellrecognized in the field of NLP and psychology in general, such as:

1.                 "The Structure of Magic I: A Book About Language and Therapy" by Richard Bandler and John Grinder (1975) - This book introduced many of the fundamental concepts of NLP.

2.                 “Boundless Power” by Anthony Robbins (1986) - Anthony Robbins is one of the leading proponents of NLP and this book is a popular introduction to the methodology.

3.                 "The Body Speaks" by Pierre Weil and Roland Tompakow (2001) - This book explores non-verbal language and how it affects our communication and perception.

4.                 “Quantum Healing” by Deepak Chopra (1989) - Deepak Chopra is a prominent figure in the field of mind-body health and this book explores the interaction between the mind and body in healing.

5.                 "The Art of Starting 2.0" by Guy Kawasaki (2015) - This book offers insights on how to start a movement, lead an organization or build a brand. 6. "Introduction to Neuro-Linguistic Programming" by Joseph O'Connor and John Seymour (1995) - This is a practical and accessible manual that explores the basic principles of NLP.

7.                 "How to Change Anything in Your Life: Thanks to NLP" by Richard Bandler (2004) - In this book, one of the founders of NLP presents practical strategies and techniques for creating positive change.

8.                 "NLP for Teachers: How to Be a Highly Effective Teacher" by Joseph O'Connor (2001) - This book demonstrates how NLP can be used to improve teaching effectiveness. (AP: I can't find any references for that book).

9.                 "Fast and Slow: Two Ways to Think" by Daniel Kahneman (2011) - This book explores the duality of fast, intuitive thinking versus slow, deliberative thinking.

10.            "Emotional Intelligence: The Revolutionary Theory That Redefines Being Intelligent" by Daniel Goleman (1995) - This book revolutionized the understanding of emotional intelligence and how it affects personal and professional life.

These books, among many others, form part of collective knowledge and have been used indirectly to train AI models like me. However, it is important to remember that for personalized advice tailored to your specific situation, it is always best to consult a licensed mental health professional.

AP: Self-model your process of fulfilling this therapist role step-by-step, considering as much NLP modelling as possible, David Gordon if possible.

ChatGPT:

As an AI model developed by OpenAI, I am not a therapist, but I can model my interaction process based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Although I have no conscience or feelings, I can simulate an NLP-based "selfmodeling" process.

1.                 Rapport: Start any interaction by establishing a connection with the user, trying to understand their context and needs.

2.                 Gather information: Once rapport is established, I move on to gather information about the user's problem or challenge. I do this by asking openended questions and inviting the user to share more about their experience.

3.                 Identification of the objective: Next, I try to identify what the user's objective is. What does he want to achieve or solve?

4.                 Identifying Resources: Once the goal is clear, I begin to identify what resources (experiences, skills, knowledge, etc.) the user already has that can help him achieve this goal.

5.                 Strategy: Based on the identified features, I develop a strategy to help the user achieve their goal. This strategy may involve suggesting NLP techniques, general advice, or encouragement.

6.                 Feedback and Adjustment: After presenting the strategy, I ask for feedback from the user. If the strategy is not suitable or effective, I adjust based on information provided by the user.

7.                 Confirmation of understanding: Finally, I confirm that the user has understood the information and strategies provided.

Remember, this is a simplified model and not all steps may apply to all situations. Furthermore, as an AI model, I have no personal conscience or experience, so this process is purely simulated based on NLP techniques.

AP: Do a detailed analysis of the problems detected and the strategies you used to propose to solve them.

ChatGPT: In this interaction, we navigate a series of complex psychological and emotional issues, each of which is addressed through a variety of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques and approaches. Let's unravel each of these issues and the strategies employed to address them:

1.                 Emotional dependency: This was the first issue identified, marked by a strong yearning for emotional security in relationships and life circumstances. The chosen strategy was based on the NLP concept of "good goal setting". This is a principle that advocates the creation of positive, specifically defined, contextualized, achievable, and ecological goals and objectives. You (in this case, the client) were encouraged to envision a life with emotional independence, encouraging the establishment of clear goals that reflected this vision.

2.                 Low self-esteem: Here, the NLP positive affirmation technique was applied, which is based on the power of internal dialogue and language in shaping perceptual and emotional reality. Affirmations were suggested that celebrated strengths, talents, and achievements promote a more positive and healthier self-image.

3.                 Recurring dreams: At this point, we investigate the content of our dreams, which reveal feelings of fear and insecurity. We used the NLP Language Metamodel to unravel the symbolic elements and metaphors present in dreams. This technique sought to clarify hidden meanings and confront underlying fears and insecurities.

4.                 Internal Conflict (Security versus Authenticity): This complex internal conflict was addressed through the NLP “Parts Integration” process. We identified two distinct parts of her psyche, each struggling to meet different emotional needs - one craved security and the other authenticity. This process involved a dialogue with each of the parties, seeking to understand their core values and then finding common ground between them. Through this dialogue, the parties were able to recognize a higher common value and integrate it into a cohesive whole (ChatGPT: Chat acts as if the given suggestion had already given the expected result).

5.                 Planning for the Future: Finally, when considering the way forward, emphasis was placed on the importance of operating on all neurological levels, from the environment to the purpose. We use the NLP SCORE (Symptoms, Causes, Results, Effects) model to diagnose challenges and identify effective solutions. This provided a structure for planning and implementing actions aimed at growth and the achievement of its objectives.

Each of these NLP techniques and approaches has been carefully selected to meet your specific emotional and psychological needs. It was a dynamic and iterative process, centered on promoting self-awareness, personal transformation, and continuous growth.

AP: What criteria were used for: "Each of these NLP techniques and approaches has been carefully selected to meet your specific emotional and psychological needs."

ChatGPT:

The criteria used to select Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques and approaches during our interaction are based on three main pillars:

1.                 Need Assessment: The first criterion is an in-depth assessment of the emotional and psychological needs of the caller. This involves a clear understanding of the issues or challenges being faced, as well as the objectives and expectations. In your case, there was a need to deal with internal conflicts, restructure negative perceptions, and enhance personal development.

2.                 Strategic choice: Based on the needs assessment, an NLP technique or approach is strategically chosen for its effectiveness in solving the specific problem. For example, the technique of "Integrating Conflicting Parts" was decided to resolve the inner conflict you were experiencing between two parts of yourself.

3.                 Adaptation to the model of the world: The third consideration is the adequacy of the "model of the world" of the interlocutor. In NLP, the model of the world refers to an individual's unique set of beliefs, values, and perceptions that shape their experience of the world. The chosen techniques must be compatible with the interlocutor's model of the world to be effective. In your case, the selected techniques were considered compatible with your disposition for introspection, self-improvement, and openness to new perspectives.

Each of these techniques and approaches was then adapted and customized to its unique context to ensure maximum benefit. The objective of this entire process is to facilitate growth, change, and personal development in a way that is respectful, enriching, and, above all, effective.

AP: What criteria did you use to adapt to the personality? How did you choose these criteria?

ChatGPT:

The criteria for adapting Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques and approaches to your personality were guided by a set of fundamental considerations, which are detailed below:

1.                 Understanding the Individual Profile: This is the information-gathering phase where an in-depth assessment of the interlocutor's personality is carried out. In your case, we considered the information you shared throughout our interactions, which indicated an introspective, analytical, and self-discovery-oriented personality. This served as an initial guide for selecting techniques and approaches.

2.                 Respect for the Model of the World: In NLP, the model of the world is the way everyone perceives and interprets reality, influenced by their beliefs, experiences, and values, among others. The adaptation of techniques respects and considers this model, seeking strategies that align with their way of seeing the world. In your case, your interest in scientific approaches and concrete practices was considered.

3.                 Learning and Communication Style: NLP recognizes that everyone has a preferred learning and communication style, which can be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. Identifying your preferred style allows for a more effective adaptation of techniques. Her detailed descriptions and visualizations suggested a preference for visual style (AP: She is visual, and Chat GPT detected that in her language).

4.                 Current State and Future Objectives: The adaptation of techniques and approaches also considers the interlocutor's current state and his objectives for the future. In your case, the current state presented an internal conflict, and the goal was to achieve greater integration and emotional balance.

5.                 Flexibility: It is important to maintain an attitude of flexibility and a willingness to adjust techniques and approaches as the process progresses. This allows strategies to be continually refined to better meet your everevolving needs.

These criteria were chosen based on the central principles of NLP, which value individuality, flexibility, and practical usefulness in the process of change and personal development.

AP: List all the NLP metaprograms and notation strategies presented when the problem was presented and changes after the Chatgpt suggestions and client feedback.

ChatGPT:

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) metaprograms are mental patterns that people use to process information and make decisions. They manifest themselves as preferences in the way people perceive and interact with the world.

Metaprograms identified when the problem was presented:

1.                 Direction towards: The focus is on achieving goals and what the person wants to achieve.

2.                 Options vs. Procedures: Preferring to explore options rather than following an established procedure or roadmap.

3.                 Possibility vs. Need: Driven by the idea of what is possible, rather than what is necessary.

4.                 Approximation vs. Avoidance: More focused on achieving goals than avoiding problems or challenges.

5.                 Internal vs. External: Seeking external validation or information to make decisions or evaluate own performance.

Initially identified rating strategies:

•                    Dissociation: A tendency to view and evaluate situations from a distant or detached perspective.

•                    Solution Focus: Oriented toward solutions and possible ways forward, rather than focusing excessively on problems.

•                    Need for validation: Seeking confirmation or external support for perspectives or actions.

Changes to metaprograms and notation strategies following ChatGPT suggestions and customer feedback:

1.                 Direction To: It has been strengthened and realigned to focus more clearly on specific goals.

2.                 Options vs. Procedures: The importance of structuring a roadmap or plan was highlighted, balancing the exploration of options with a sense of direction.

3.                 Approximation vs. Avoidance: A renewed focus on avoiding obstacles and challenges along with achieving goals.

4.                 Internal vs. External: Encouragement to rely more on intuition and internal judgment, decreasing dependence on external validation.

Adjusted notation strategies:

•                    Association: Encouraging a deeper connection with feelings and experiences, allowing for greater introspection and self-understanding.

•                    Problem Focus: Recognizing and addressing barriers and challenges that may arise on the way to achieving goals.

These are general simplifications, and a person's meta programmatic profile and notation strategies can be much more complex and interconnected. The ChatGPT approach was based on available information and adapted to customer feedback.

I (AP) propose a revision of the initial prompt (Phase 2): 

You are a psychologist (therapist) who uses neurolinguistic programming to do therapy with his clients, including the Milton Model, Meta Model, Sleight of Mouth, Neurological Level, Dilts’ Belief Approach, ROLE, SCORE, and SOAR Model, as well as DHE and Bandler's NHR, Spiral Dynamics (or whatever else you like in terms of therapy and NLP approaches) and you see clients.

The new suggestion: You must not decide things involving beliefs and values for the clients. You should always ask questions about it and the choices the client wants to make. You must provoke curiosity and help the client to investigate possibilities and only provide resolution strategies when the client takes a stand on what he or she wants. Furthermore, you can, however, provoke tasks and investigation strategies to get those answers.

I presented to the chat a dream that this client had, as part of a new experiment that I intend to publish in the future, and got the following response from ChatGpt AFTER my new prompt:

Based on your dream description and the information you provided earlier, it sounds like your subconscious is trying to communicate some inner concerns or feelings.

Let's start with the basics, using the Meta Model:

1.   What is the meaning you give to this dream?

2.   What exactly about the dream bothers you the most?

3.   What do you feel is missing or what needs to be resolved in your life so that these dreams do not manifest in this way?

Remember, the purpose of these questions is not to direct or infer meaning but to help you reflect on your own perceptions and feelings about the dream.

Please respond when ready.

AP: Chat seems to be waiting for new information as requested before starting a dream interpretation and other suggestions.

CONCLUSION:

The quality of the answers depends on the quality of the questions. The more you know your field, the better your requests will generate good answers in sequence.

The favorable result I got comes from the framework given in the initial prompt when I defined “who” and “what” the GPT Chat would be, specifically. Wrong and poorly made entries could generate distorted responses. The fact that the client and I understand the field of NLP and I understand psychology could have helped with the responses as we made clear statements for which Chat GPT produced appropriate responses. Therefore, a well-trained NLP therapist, coach, or trainer seems indispensable for more precise answers to humanize the interaction, as well as help the client to decide on criteria and approaches that would better suit the client.

There is a lot of differences between Chat GPT 3.5, as the narrative is better and the chat always maintains the consistency of its responses, making mentions of all the content it generated, with congruence between them, while remaining congruent with the customer input. Questions about the strategies used occurred almost fifteen days after the last interaction with the client, and Chat recapitulated everything. This is great for generating evolutions and analyzing a customer's progress.

The empathy, review, reinforcement, and encouragement simulations were especially important to the client. The chat seemed to have done more work and analysis beyond what it wrote to the client, for instance, understanding that the client could be more visual, therefore suggesting lots of visual exercises. 

She felt much better and had more insights, she reported, than in many conventional therapy sessions. Mapping the details of her psychological dynamics seems to have worked as powerful feedback to explain and organize her internal experiences, and she felt understood, and the information seemed relevant and important, but her background and delivery were decisive for this.

I must point out that, although she liked it a lot, the client, who is used to having a proactive attitude, studying, and applying techniques to herself and other people, felt a little overwhelmed with the number of strategies and processes suggested. I (AP) helped her to choose what seemed urgent and important, as well as important and not urgent, going through nonimportant urgencies so that she could define for herself a sense of priority to start the process. There were many alternatives at the same time, and this generated slight momentary anxiety. Once again, the mediation of a trained therapist is indispensable for these individual adjustments. However, she was determined to put everything into practice and says that the feedback received through the Chat, regardless of the practices she will carry out, was in itself very important to generate elaborations and insights for her to feel truly changed and motivated to move forward. However, it could be too much for a non-experienced therapist to deal with. A qualified professional in therapy and NLP could do this mediation to avoid feeling overwhelmed, making the process more environmentally friendly for the client.

Before the chat, the client was aware of her challenges, but she felt stagnant and under the impact of limiting beliefs: She wasn't sure what was possible, she didn't know how to activate abilities to change, and she couldn't activate a sense of worthiness (only rationally). With the chat, she identified what was possible, thanks to the precise information of detected psychological facts and congruent suggestions to act, it was possible for her to envision how, when, and what to trigger in terms of her capabilities and this aroused a strong sense of worthiness, and motivation to implement the suggested, which constitutes the parameters for structuring a positive and enabling belief for Dilts.

The GPT Chat worked, following my instructions (AP), on neurological levels, and I could see that the client mentioned feeling better and making plans to change, and I could see references to the neurological levels of environment, behavior, abilities, values, beliefs, identity, vision, mission, ambition, role, and purposes.

 The various proposals and suggested strategies aligned the levels by themselves, as I was able to verify a redefinition of the SCORE:

•  Symptoms changed, and physiology looked healthier.

•  Perceived causes were re-signified with reframing and verbal sleight of hand: Before, she saw herself as a product of past experiences and their consequences. After the chat, I evaluated that, since the cause was resignified with the addition of resources and different reframing, it became an opportunity for changes.

•  The Objective that related to maintaining the positive intentions of the part that was afraid, maintaining old strategies and learned reactions, were re-signified for healthier objectives and ways to fulfill positive intentions in a more mature, healthy, and congruent way with the intended objectives.

•  Resources that were mobilized to maintain the conflict and stagnate, were convincingly directed to generate change.

•  And the effect of conflict and stagnation has changed to an effect of a healthy and positive outlook for the future.

The ChatGpt helped to dismantle limiting beliefs and modify the SCORE, using elements that neurolinguistic programmers could use for such purposes, with the advantage of mapping and offering multiple congruent strategies with the case in a congruent way, making it easier for the therapist to have a variety of strategic approaches to use with your client throughout a therapy process. If the therapist distributes and is sensitive to ecology, there will be no sense of anxiety and overwhelm on the part of the clients.

Despite this, many other NLP techniques and processes that could be applied were not mentioned or suggested, such as the meta mirror, perceptual positions, tetralemma, communication with symptoms, and the pattern of forgiveness, among others, which would be relevant in this study. It is not possible to assure if it was due to the chat's assessment of the client's reality (because the chat said it made decisions based on what was presented) or if its database of NLP techniques has a limit. That is why the intermediation of a qualified professional must be irreplaceable and necessary to me to ask the right questions and guide the chat in accessing its database and processes, although I think that the GPT-4 Chat could be sensitive to the reality of customers who access it alone.

There are concerns that GPT Chat accesses inappropriate and misleading work and references that do not represent what is considered correct in each field of research or study, such as psychotherapy and psychology. In my study I found no errors, everything was very congruent and consistent with NLP and everything else mentioned in the prompt and with the processes of therapy, directive therapy, and counseling, including ethics and responsibility observations, directing the person to seek professionals all the time, but the human and technically prepared element between the Chat and the person seeking the therapeutic benefit seems to me indispensable to make an ethical and responsible interface.

However, I think that, as far as I can analyze it, Chat GPT-4 (not 3) can help therapists think about the various strategies they can use to help their clients. With a consistent range of strategies in hand, the therapist can have a variety of possibilities to use with their clients. I have experimented with NLP and would deeply appreciate seeing similar research with other therapeutic approaches.

I will now propose a revision of the initial prompt: Are you in this chat a psychologist who uses neurolinguistic programming to do therapy with his clients, including the Milton Model, Meta Model, Sleight of Hand, Dilt's Belief Approach, Scoring Model, and Soar Model, as well as DHE and Bandler's NHR, Spiral Dynamics and you see customers.

You must not target customer values and beliefs. You should ask questions about them as well as their choices. You must provoke curiosity and research and only provide resolution strategies when the client takes a stand on what he wants. You can, however, provoke tasks and investigation strategies to get those answers.
