NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming was initially created in 1975 by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. They began studying, learning and then duplicating the "magical results" of some of the leaders in their fields, such as hypnotherapist Milton Erickson, gestalt therapist Fritz Perls and family therapist Virginia Satir.
NLP, like CBH, helps people change negative beliefs, ineffective behaviours, limiting decisions and negative emotions connected to an event or series of events. Our limiting beliefs, decisions, negative emotions and feelings are the reasons we do not achieve what we really want in life.
Neuro refers to the brain and nervous system, Linguistic to the words we use to describe our world and Programming - like computer programmes - relates to the pathways and links we consciously and unconsciously use and make everyday of our lives. By changing or blocking those links and pathways you can get rid of unhealthy negative emotions and change limiting beliefs and decisions.
As with hypnotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy, nlp can be used for a number of different issues from phobias to limiting beliefs and negative self-talk. It is also great for goal setting and motivation.
A very effective method, which I use a lot, is Timeline Therapy© this guides the client back in time to the first moment when they experienced the negative emotion, such as fear or anger. Having identified that moment they are taken back to before they experienced that emotion or made that limiting decision. This process can have profound and lasting effects.
NLP is not only used for personal development it is effective in business to improve management, sales, achievement, performance and inter-personal skills. In the education sector, it aids better understanding of learning styles, helps develop rapport with students and parents and helps motivation.
