NLP techniques are widely used. It is not generally recognized however, that NLP techniques are mostly metaphor techniques. The Fast Phobia Cure uses the Gestalt principle of associating a visualization with an emotional response. Changing the visualization changes the emotion. In NLP this is done with a fixed metaphor using a cinema screen.

The Six Step Reframe Technique uses an indirect hypnotic induction to put you into trance. Once you are in trance, the technique allows you to contact your own unconscious mind. It is actually a version of Parts Therapy. You ask one part of your mind to contact other parts of your mind. These parts then negotiate an outcome that allows you to change your behaviour. The parts are a metaphor for your own emotions. The change happens because of standard metaphor associations.

The Anchoring Technique uses a physical metaphor. You are encouraged to experience an emotion you don't want. For example it might be the feeling you get when you see a spider. That is an unpleasant feeling that you want to get rid of. You are told to pinch your knee or do some other physical action to your body while you are thinking about the spider feeling. This anchors the spider feeling onto a particular part of your body.

You are then encouraged to experience a different positive emotion. This could be something like the feeling you get when you win a prize, or some other highly successful thing. You are then told to link that feeling to some part of your body, usually your hand. You then think of both feelings and press your hand onto the part of your body that has the spider feeling. The theory is that the good feeling wipes out the bad feeling. This is exactly the same metaphor technique as the Pain Control Paint Pot method.
