Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a modelling approach that focuses on teaching people to adopt new behaviours as required and to choose physical and mental states of wellbeing. It explores the interrelationship between how a person thinks (neuro) and communicates both verbal and nonverbal (linguistic) and patterns of emotion and behavior (programmes). In effect, it is about the understanding of what is going inside yourself and others.

How does Neuro Linguistic Programming work?

The purpose of NLP is to help people to understand their own minds, how they think and behave the way they do, and to learn how to manage their moods and emotions and reprogram on how they process information so that it can lead to a more acceptable and successful behavior. It is designed to help these people to see various ways that they have been successful in the past and identify ways to efficiently and easily repeat that success in other areas of their lives. NLP practitioners believe that the answers sought by their clients to their problems can be found within themselves, they will only help them draw those answers out.
