Neuro Linguistic Programming
Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP for short, has been around since the 1970’s when its co-founders, Richard Bandler and John Grinder first modelled other therapists.
Put very simply, NLP is the study of what we think, say and do. It is frequently known as the “user’s manual for your mind” and studying NLP gives us insights into how our thinking patterns can affect every aspect of our lives.
It looks at the way in which we think and process our thoughts (Neuro), the language patterns we use (Linguistic) and our behaviours (Programming) and how these interact to have a positive or negative effect on us as individuals.
The quality of your relationship with yourself and the resulting inner talk will strongly influence the relationship you have with others.
NLP gives us a wide range of methods and models which create an understanding of our thought processes and behaviours. Understanding these techniques can bring about a positive change in you, your self-image and ultimately the way others respond to you.
It is a set of tools which can be used to facilitate powerful, quick and long lasting change in both individuals and organisations.
The NLP practitioner is Jane Lloyd.
