FAQs

What is NLP?

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States in the 1970s. Its creators 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.[1][2]

NLP  is a method of achieving success through successful actions, in particular by modeling the actions of those who are very successful indeed. People with success usually have great communication skills and it is these skills that open doors, create opportunities and pave the road for further success. Not everyone is born an “A” type personality, some of us are not as outspoken or possibly socially gifted as some. NLP techniques can help build our communication skills and increase the social rapport we develop with others.

NLP Started off with a communication model. This communication model showed how people communicate and interact with themselves and others. The NLP communication model explains how we process the information that comes in from outside us and what we do with it inside.  It also explains the miind body connection.  What we think and how we feel effects the actions and the results we get. By changing just one of those “parts” has an effect on the others.
