So what is NLP?
‘Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an approach to communication and personal development created by Richard Bandler & John Grinder in the 1970s’ (Source: Wikipedia).
- Neuro – the mind
- Linguistic – words & body language
- Programming – patterns of behaviours learnt and repeated
It is basically a method to understand yourself, why you act and react as you do or what makes you tick. The set of techniques used will help you change and influence your own behaviour, utilising language and other types of communication in order for you to create new and more helpful ways of being.
It is a mean to change the responses that don’t serve you so you can start getting what you want instead. This approach shows how our assumptions affect our behaviours, actions and results in life. It addresses the consequences of what we have brought to ourselves.
NLP will also teach you how to communicate better, not just with other people, but within yourself. Our internal self-dialogue can sometimes be quite damaging and a few simple tweaks often make a world of difference.
Neuro Linguistic Programming has also been described by Richard Bandler as ‘a model of interpersonal communication directly concerned with the relationship between successful behaviours and the subjective patterns (especially patterns of thought) underlying them (…) which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behaviour.’
If it is important to you to get the relationships that you truly want (be it with yourself or with others), and if you are serious about changing your life and habits of a lifetime, then you have come to the right place. We are all conditioned through life, and often have self-limiting beliefs or develop certain patterns and behaviours that aren’t helpful, and can actually stop us achieving or getting what we truly want.
The good news is that it is actually easy to solve once you know how and a fairly quick process.
