NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)

What is NLP?

NLP is founded on the principle that individuals operate on their own internal maps of the world. There is no one single definition of NLP as there are a number of different interpretations.

It is claimed that behaviour and thoughts can be changed via the use of language, or rather how we process language. We all have unconscious biases towards different sensory systems within ourselves. “I can hear what you are saying”, or “I can see your view on that”, are examples of sensory language.

The therapist will look for simple references which can lead to an indication of where your bias may lie. When this bias is known a plan moving forwards through treatment can be formulated with your sensory perception at the heart of this plan. NLP was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, it was their belief that people who have achieved great success in life have particular patterns of thought process and they believe it is possible to take these patterns and teach people these behaviours.
