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.
