NLP, Neuro-linguistic programming began in the mid-1970s in America with the work of John Grinder, a professor of linguistics, and Richard Bandler, a psychologist.
Neurology The mind and how we think
Linguistic How we use language and how it affects us
Programming How we sequence our actions to achieve goals
It explains how we process and use information and how this affects our state, physiology and behaviour. It explains how we think about our values and beliefs, how we create our emotional states, how we build our internal world and give it meaning.
In order to create new change in our life we must understand how we make sense of our worlds and how we construct our realities. NLP helps to break the patterns of negative thoughts and behaviours, perceive things in a positive light, unlearn things which are holding us back and make positive and achievable goals.
