NLP - Neuro-linguistic programming
NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field. NLP is also used for personal development and for success in business or developing confidences in any area.
A key pert of NLP is that we form our unique internal mental mapping of the world as a product of the way we filter and perceive information absorbed through our five main senses from the world around us. I am trained in both Hypnotherapy Advanced NLP to help.
Neuro-linguistic programming is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States in the 1970s.
Each individual has established their own unique mental filtering system for processing the millions of bits of data being absorbed through the senses. Our first mental map of the world is constituted of internal images, sounds, tactile awareness, internal sensations, tastes and smells that form as result of the neurological filtering process. The first mental map is called ‘First Access’ in NLP.
We then assign personal meaning to the information being received from the world outside. We form our second mental map by assigning language to the internal images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, thus forming everyday conscious awareness. The second mental map is called the Linguistic Map (sometimes known as Linguistic Representation)
The behavioural response that occurs as a result of the neurological filtering processes and the subsequent linguistic map is the third mapping process.
NLP, or neuro linguistic programming, is an extremely gentle yet powerful technique that can bring profound improvement to both your professional and personal life.
NLP doesn’t claim to provide answers to the “big questions.” It does, however, allow people to feel comfortable with not having all the answers and to be happy to simply explore. Rather than a full-on philosophy, it provides tools to change so we can be happier and more effective in our lives. It is effective both in the workplace and in private life.
