Neuro Linguistic Programming

 



Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) was originally created in 1975 by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, but since that time, many others have contributed towards its growth and development. There are several descriptions of what NLP actually is, but they all agree that Modelling is a core component, that opens a window into ascertaining how people function.

It explores the relationship between how one thinks (neuro) and communicates both verbally and non verbally (linguistic), and patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes). NLP is a behaviour technique that teaches people how to change or adopt new behaviours as required and to choose mental and physical states of wellbeing. In effect, it is about knowing what is going on inside oneself and others.

NLP practitioners teach the use of NLP techniques to people in many areas of life. It is suitable for business professionals, teachers, sales people, counsellors and therapists. Some of the improved skills said to be achieved by the use of NLP include:

  • Management and sales
  • Communication
  • Increased motivation
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Personal development

Practitioners believe that changing how you think, will also change what you think.
