What is NLP?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that encompasses three influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming.  NLP is a therapeutic technique to detect and reprogramme unconscious patterns of thought and behavior in order to alter psychological responses.

The neurological system regulates how the body functions, language determines how individuals interface and communicate with other people and a person’s programming determines the kinds of models of the world they create.  Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects the body and behavior (programming).

The basic premise of NLP is that the words we use reflect an inner, subconscious perception of our problems.  If these words and perceptions are inaccurate, as long as we continue to use them and to think of them, the underlying problem will persist. In other words, our attitudes are, in a sense, a self-fulfilling prophecy.  If something is humanly possible and you believe you can do it then you can.  If you believe that you can’t then you will be right too.

One of the fundamental principles of NLP is that it is in an individual’s power to change their own subconscious programming for the better.  NLP seeks to create positive and improved responses, and its applications include most areas involving human communications, such as education and accelerated learning, creative processes, health and wellbeing.

NLP is closely connected to hypnosis and in part relies on the use of light trance as an altered state of awareness. This allows a person to be more open to auto-suggestions.
