What Is NLP

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
is a body of knowledge that integrates three different scientific fields and fuses together different behavioural theories and models into one structure. It draws on neurological, linguistic and cognitive sciences.

Neuro:The nervous system. Understanding and using principles and patterns of the nervous system. Cognitive processes such as remembering, thinking, vision-making, etc are a result of programmes executed by the nervous system. Human experience therefore is a combination of information we receive and process within our nervous system, i.e. sensing the world: seeing, hearing, tasting and feeling.

Linguistics:The use of language. Language consequently is a product of the nervous system; it stimulates and shapes the activities of the nervous system. Effective communication and interaction has to do with how we use language to instruct, stimulate, verbalise concepts, goals and issues related to a particular situation or task.

Programming:This is the notion that the processes of human learning, creativity and memory are a function of ‘programmes’. We interact with and respond to our world based on our internal programmes. We respond to problems using existing programmes we have established.

NLP is an explicit and powerful model of human experience and communication. Using the principals of NLP it is possible to describe any human activity in a detailed way that allows you to make many deep and lasting changes quickly and easily.

As human beings we are creatures of habit in what we think, what we feel, and what we do. Some habits are really useful whilst others can be ineffective, limiting, or even undermining.

With the help of NLP you can understand your own individual patterns, how they have been formed by your past history, how they affect you now, and how they can affect your future, more than this NLP gives you the practical tools to change or fine tune your behaviours so they dovetail with what is important to you and what is not.
