What is NLP? NLP can be used for personal development, releasing fears /and phobias and for helping you to achieve your maximum personal and professional potential. NLP is the practice of understanding how we organise our thinking, feelings, language and behaviour to produce the results and behaviours we do. NLP can provide us with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by leaders in their field, who model excellence. A key element of NLP is that we form our unique internal mental maps of the world as a product of the way we filter, interpret and perceive information absorbed through our five senses from the world around us. • Neuro: Each individual can establish their own unique mental filtering system for processing the millions of pieces of data being absorbed through their senses each second. Our first mental map of the world consists of internal images, sounds, tactile awareness, internal sensations, tastes and smells that are formed as a result of our neurological filtering process. • Linguistic: We may then assign our own personal meaning to the information being received from the world outside of us. We then form our second mental map by assigning language to the internal images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, which forms our everyday conscious awareness. The second mental map is called the Linguistic Map. • Programming: This is the behavioural response that occurs as a result of our complex, neurological filtering processes and the subsequent linguistic map which is then formed. NLP Origins Neuro Linguistic Programming began its life in the 1970s when a Professor from the University of California John Grinder, teamed up with an undergraduate Richard Bandler. Both had a fascination with human excellence which charted a path for them to model behavioural patterns of selected masters of excellence. Modelling is one of the the core activities in NLP, and is the process of replicating the language structure and behavioural patterns of individuals who are excellent at a given activity. Grinder and Bandler started their NLP quest by modelling three people: Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir and Milton Erickson. These “geniuses” were outstanding professionals of change facilitation, working in the area of therapy. All three therapists, Perls, Satir and Erickson performed their magic from a perspective of “unconscious excellence”. Grinder and Bandler absorbed the patterning inherent in the geniuses work and then provided a description. They then coded the results of their work in language-based models using the patterns, descriptive vocabulary. Using NLP “Modelling” Grinder and Bandler replicated the skills of the 3 geniuses and NLP was born. Their enthusiasm is in part captured in his introduction to the book Structure of Magic. The training courses Bandler and Grinder conducted – proved that the NLP models were transferable to others, meaning the learners could use the NLP models successfully in their own work. Satisfaction guaranteed. What can NLP help you with? Changing unwanted thoughts and feelings. This could include Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and any fears and phobias.
