NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)

What does it mean?

NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a behavioural discipline created to help teach people how to think, communicate and manage issues in their lives more effectively.

“Neuro” is concerned with the neural pathways in our brain, “Linguistic” describes the use of language while “Programming” articulates this therapy’s approach in assisting people to make permanent changes to the patterns stored in their minds.

How does NLP work?

NLP is a highly effective system that uses language and communication to access a person’s unconscious mind. The unconscious mind is where all of our patterns and habits are stored. NLP works with a person’s values, beliefs, attitudes, strategies, emotions and decisions to help influence change. NLP utilises a range of techniques drawing on the key teachings and insights of a number of highly successful therapists including William James (pragmatics), Alfred Korzybski (general semantics), Carl Rogers (‘person-centred therapy’), Eric Berne (transactional analysis), Karl Pribram, George Miller and Eugene Gallanter (the TOTE model), Fritz Perls (Gestalt therapy), Virginia Satir (family therapy) and Milton Erickson (hypnosis) among others.
