NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming

NLP has been described as the art of personal excellence. It is an attitude and a set of skills that enables outstanding individual performance and success.

It explores the relationship between how we think, communicate and behave. To understand the “patterns” we run NLP techniques explore the interplay between neurology – how our bodies function and receive experiences; language – how we communicate; programming – how we respond behaviourally. We can then replace “pre-programmed” negative behaviours with far more positive ones.

I am a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming, training with Dr Susi Strang, one of the top Trainers in the UK and apply NLP when it is appropriate and beneficial in the fields of both hypnotherapy and coaching.

Through its flexible approach it can bring about fast, positive change in individuals (and organisations) to empower us to have more fulfilling personal and work lives.

NLP first emerged at the start of the 1970s primarily from the work of John Grinder, a linguistics professor and Richard Bandler, a mathematics and IT research student, at the University of Santa Cruz, California. It originally drew from the works of Noam Chomsky, Alfred Korzybski, Gregory Bateson, Fritz Pearls, Virginia Satir and Milton Erickson in identifying a practical approach to self exploration through connecting specific and direct links between language – verbal and non verbal – (linguistic) and our internal processing (neurology) and habitual behaviour (programming).
