Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) began as a model of how we communicate to ourselves and others. It was originally developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder and others. This incredibly effective model explains how we internally process the information that comes into us from the outside, give meaning to those experiences and then communicate that from the inside to the outside.
NLP is a collection of tools, techniques and methodologies that allow us a profound sensory based insight into the unconsciously driven patterns which create our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
NLP is a very effective method of changing our thinking, our learned neurological connections that fire off our neural networks or pathways within our physiology that run from an external or internal trigger all the way through to a particular state, be it positive or negative. So in layman’s terms NLP is a very powerful model of internal and external communication, it is a model that promotes self awareness and facilitates effective and influential communication.
Basically it’s the operators manual for your mind and will allow you to learn to control your optimum mental, emotional and physical behaviour. If you have ever felt out of control or in need of a major software or hardware reboot then NLP is the easy way for you to reprogram your mind, breaking old patterns and installing new empowering ways to move forward in your life.
Neuro: Your neurology or nervous system, the processing unit through which your experiences are processed via your five senses:.
Linguistic: Your verbal and nonverbal communication system through which your internal (neural) representations are processed, filed, coded, ordered and translated into meaning and communicated externally through your language.
Programming:The conscious and unconscious constructed system which we use to achieve our results. We can easily discover and utilise the structure of these programs to create an environment of agreement and influence or where necessary we can dismantle and re-structure them to create change.

People communicate feelings in different ways. Most of these feelings are actually communicated unconsciously, be it through tone, volume, pace, facial expressions, body language and words. NLP practitioners are trained to recognise these subtle, unconscious clues so that they can understand how their client is feeling. A practitioner can identify the self-imposed restrictions the clients have put on themselves through unveiling the client’s mental map and working with them to move forward.
The three most common types of limiting beliefs/self-imposed restrictions include:
It is easy for people to set themselves up for failure if they are constantly thinking negative thoughts. Comments such as, “I’m not good enough”, or “other people are better than me” can limit an experience and the chance of accomplishment. It is common for an NLP practitioner to cover these negative beliefs by asking a series of questions.
The answers to these questions can help to reveal the feelings that are causing the limiting beliefs. An NLP coach will then begin to explore and challenge the limitations with the hope of changing the client’s negative thoughts.
