Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an interpersonal communications model and an alternative approach to psychotherapy based on the subjective study of language, communication and personal change. It was co-founded by Richard Bandler (Mathmetician) and John Grinder (Linguistics Professor) in the 1970s as a method of personal change and communications. The focus was pragmatic, modeling three successful psychotherapists, Virginia Satir, Milton Erickson and Fritz Perls.

NLP encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create.

Neuro refers to the neurological system and the brain which connect the body organs, immune system, bones, etc.; and to how we use our minds, bodies, and 5 senses (see, hear, feel, smell, taste) to translate our experience into thought processes. Linguistic refers to the way we use language to make sense of our experience and communicate it to ourselves and others. Through our 5 senses we take in information from the world, code and store it internally in our own unique way. These internal codes, or internal representations, shape our mental worlds. Programming refers to the way we code our experience. Our thinking styles are like ‘software’ of the brain. This includes our thoughts, feelings, emotions, behaviours, responses, skills, beliefs, and personality. Changing, or upgrading, this ‘mental software’ allows us to let go of behaviours and responses that no longer work for us, and achieve the goals we want now. Therefore, the results we achieve in our life are the consequence of our personal programmes.

Thus Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (Neuro) and language (Linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behavior (Programming).

NLP is a multi-dimensional process that involves the development of behavioral competence and flexibility, involving strategic thinking and an understanding of the mental and cognitive processes behind behavior. NLP, is the study of human excellence and success. It provides amazingly simple and powerful methods for changing the way you think, feel, behave, and learn so that you consistently achieve the results you want in your personal and professional life. NLP provides tools and skills for the development of states of individual excellence, and establishes a system of empowering beliefs and presuppositions about what human beings are, what communication is and what the process of change is all about. At another level, NLP is about self-discovery, exploring identity and mission. It provides a framework for understanding and relating to the ‘spiritual’ part of human experience that reaches beyond us as individuals to our family, community and global systems. NLP is not only about competence and excellence; it is about wisdom and vision.

Through the years, NLP has developed some very powerful tools and skills for communication and change in a wide range of professional areas including: counseling, psychotherapy, education, health, creativity, law, management, sales, leadership and parenting. NLP is now used in so many areas that you have most likely heard of it under other names – inspirational trainings, accelerated learning in education, photographic memory, succeeding in sport and sales, curing physical misalignments, etc. Famous and successful people all over the world use the same strategies and techniques that are taught at practitioner level in NLP.
