What is N.L.P. ?
N.L.P. stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming and was developed in the 1970’s primarily by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. They created a system where they modelled three therapists who were excellent in their field, in order to duplicate their success. One of the therapists modelled was Milton Erickson a well know Psychotherapist and Hypnotist, which is why there is such a strong connection between Hypnotherapy and N.L.P. techniques.
N.L.P. has many aspects or strands, and these include the art of communication, performance and re-framing change work. Basically the founders created a system from what we do naturally, labelled it and made it able to be reproduced. N.L.P. has often been called an “Instruction Manual for the Brain” and the techniques can be very empowering. Learning to operate our brains effectively can benefit everyone, and N.L.P. gives us the tools to help us do this.
