Neuro Linguistic Programming - NLP.

NLP is the systematic study of human performance.

This study of the subjective experience allows the practitioner to break down our thoughts actions and performance into the tiniest particles and modify, change re-present or eliminate them and essentially illicit change in the simplest possible way to achieve optimum results or desires in a time period that was heretofore thought impossible.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has been described as a software manual for the brain. It is a proven model for accelerating human change and is used as a means to improve the way we think, feel and behave.

Ultimately, NLP is a model of communication that focuses on identifying and using patterns of language and thought to influence a person's behaviour. It offers a definition of how the brain works (neuro), about how language interacts with the brain (linguistic) and how we use this interaction to get the results we want for ourselves and others (programming).

NLP was initially created by linguist Dr John Grinder and computer scientist and Gestalt therapist Dr Richard Bandler. Together they produced a linguistic model that identified the language patterns of a few exceptionally gifted individuals such as hypnotherapist Milton Erickson, Fritz Perls of Gestalt therapy and anthropologist Gregory Bateson. The collection of their findings, a blend of cognitive and behavioural science, resulted in the technology known as Neuro Linguistic Programming. In the 25+ years since it was first developed, NLP has grown, changed and expanded, and it continues to do so today.
