NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming
So you are curious about NLP. It is gaining popularity as a useful tool for not only forms of therapy, but also communication, relationships and management. NLP was developed in the 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Grinder majored in linguistics while Bandler has a gestalt therapy background. Using their knowledge, and weaving in techniques from excellent therapists such as Milton Erikson, Virginia Satir and Fritz Perls, NLP was born.
NLP is short for Neuro Linguistic Programming and Bandler describes it in six words:
- Neuro – brain
- Linguistics – language
- Programming – behaviour
NLP trains the brain to learn new skills, change thought patterns and even behaviours. It aids goal setting, coping with change and overcoming negative emotional patterns.
It offers you a flexible approach to dealing with change which ultimately brings about positive, fast change and empowers you to adapt to an ever-changing world.
