NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming
What is NLP?

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. It was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s. They developed models that help us understand how people represent reality to themselves and, further, how understanding can be used in ethical ways to conduct change in work and enrich people's understanding of what is happening.

NLP also offers a range of techniques, which can enable great insights into the way in which we think, feel and behave.

Essentially NLP is about how language affects behaviour.

Why are people using NLP?

Managers, teachers, trainers, therapists, consultants and coaches have become increasingly aware that competence has a task and relationship side. The relationship side is about human relations, understanding how somebody is and from what inner connections his or her behaviour is based on. And then the task is about results understanding how can we help people to be more effective and create more choice for themselves. The powerful proposition of NLP is that it synthesises these two aspects.

The study and application of NLP can help people to:

Applications for NLP

NLP has been used in many facets of life. It has been used in coaching, therapy, training, teaching, sport, caring professions, law and even parenting. As we are all professional communicators, NLP can be used in almost all walks of life.

Pre-suppositions of NLP

  • Respect another person's model of the world
  • The meaning of communication is the response you get
  • The mind and the body affect each other
  • The words we use are NOT the event or the item they represent (the map is not the territory)
  • The most important information about a person is that person's behaviour
  • All behaviour has a positive intention Behaviour is geared for adaptation, and present behaviour is the best choice available
  • A person's behaviour is not who they are (accept the person, change the behaviour)
  • People have all the abilities they need to succeed (there are no unresourceful people, only UNRESOURCEFUL states)
  • You are in charge of your mind, and therefore your results
  • The system (person) with the most flexibility of behaviour will control the system
  • There is no failure, only feedback
  • Resistance in a client is a sign of a lack of rapport (this can be said for relationships)
  • There are no resistant clients, only inflexible communicators
  • All procedures should increase choice
  • Behaviour and change is to be evaluated in terms of context, and ecology
  • All procedures should increase wholeness
  • All meaning is context dependent
  • If it ain't broke don't fix it!
  • All people are magnificent

NLP Practitioner Programme

Why would you want to attend an NLP Practitioner Programme?

NLP is essentially about achieving behavioural change. NLP is about studying “the difference that makes the difference” and how this can be applied to every aspect of our lives.

  • NLP is about how we experience events through our senses (Neuro)
  • NLP is about understanding language and other non-verbal communication systems (Linguistic)
  • NLP is about understanding how to discover and use the habits or behaviours we have in order to achieve specific outcomes (Programming)

By the end of this programme you will benefit personally from a transformational change AND be qualified to apply these techniques to others.
