The Benefits of NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming)

What is NLP?

NLP, or Neurolinguistic Programming is another type of therapy that can be used for self-development but can also be used to increase success in interpersonal relations, businesses and organisations. It holds the assumption that neurological processes, language and learned behaviour are interconnected and can be changed in order to achieve specific goals. Neurolinguistic programming deals with how we think, how we motivate ourselves and how we bring meaning to our lives.

Scientifically put, the trained practitioner works by using specific techniques which then change our internal responses to external stimuli which then achieves the desired outcome.  It is an incredible powerful tool and has had much success. It is the practice of understanding how we organise our thoughts, feelings, language and behaviour in order to achieve what we want.

How can NLP help me?

It all sounds very scientific and complex, but simply put in lay-man’s terms, it is a way of studying how people excel in any field and teaching these patterns to others.  When put like that, it sounds very appealing to pretty much everybody.  Who doesn’t want to achieve excellence?!  Along with an efficient methodology behind the practice, it also allows for individual differences to be highlighted and celebrated and to become excellent in their chosen field in a unique way.

NLP can help us recognise the times where we are successful and understand how and why this successful outcome arised.  When recognising it, NLP then works to model such patterns so that we can recreate such successes over and over again.  NLP is the study of what makes the difference between average and excellence and helping you unfold your own genius, bringing out the best in yourself and the best in others.  What makes it so helpful and adaptable is that it is a practical skill that can be learnt and honed and one that creates the results you truly want.  These effective techniques that NLP uses can be applied to education, counselling, business and therapy.
