Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Neuro linguistic programming (NLP) is sometimes described as the study of human excellence. NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do.

Neuro Linguistic Programming began it’s life early in the 1970s when an Associate Professor from the University of California,, John Grinder, and who teamed up with an undergraduate Richard Bandler a computer scientist and Gestalt therapist. NLP is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy . Grinder and Bandler claim a connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (“programming”) and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life.

Bandler and Grinder invented a process known as ‘modelling’ that enabled them to study three of the world’s greatest therapists: Dr Milton Erickson, father of modern hypnotherapy; Fritz Perls, creator of Gestalt therapy; and Virginia Satir, the mother of modern-day family therapy. They wanted to know what made these therapists effective and to train others in their methods. What is offered today as NLP is the product of this modelling process.

It allows you to change, adopt or eliminate behaviors, as you desire, and gives you the ability to choose your mental, emotional, and physical states of well-being.With NLP, you learn how to grow from every single life experience, thus increasing your ability to create a better quality of life.

NLP techniques may be used alongside other approaches as part of your treatment programme.
