What is NLP?
Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an extremely powerful concept, an approach to communication, personal development and psychotherapy created in the early 70s in United States.
It is used is used to enhance performance and overcome personal problems, to help an individual control their emotional states, and to stay focused on what they want from life. It is a set of skills and insights.
NLP techniques and methods were created by modeling the work of three most skillful therapists: Fritz Perls (the founder of Gestalt therapy), family therapist Virginia Satir and world’s most effective hypnotherapist Milton Erickson.
Medical News Today did a great job describing what it does, so I will use their description:
“Neuro-linguistic programming is a way of changing someone’s thoughts and behaviors to help achieve desired outcomes for them.
The popularity of neuro-linguistic programming or NLP has become widespread since it started in the 1970s. Its uses include treatment of phobias and anxiety disorders and improvement of workplace performance or personal happiness.
NLP uses perceptual, behavioral, and communication techniques to make it easier for people to change their thoughts and actions.
NLP was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, who believed it was possible to identify the patterns of thoughts and behaviors of successful individuals and to teach them to others.
At its simplest, NLP affects how you perceive the world, how you assess your place in the world, and it allows you to reframe your mode of existence to provide the richest choice of resources and options available to make real, valid, provable improvements to your life.
It allows you to heal, if you are injured or troubled; and if you are healthy, NLP allows you to focus on ways to improve your lot in life.”
