Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)




NLP is a set of procedures or techniques for modifying behavior, achieving self improvement, improving self management, and acquiring more effective interpersonal communications skills. Its basic premise is that to achieve any kind of success one must create rich imagery of the goal, initiate and internalize the appropriate behavioral patterns. Its name is derived from how senses filter and process experience before storing it in brain (Neuro), how one uses words and symbols to create mental images (linguistic), and how desired habits and attitudes become ingrained mental, behavioral and emotional habits† (programming). Proposed in 1970s in the US jointly by John Grinder (born 1940, a professor of linguistics) and John Bandler (born 1950, a mathematician) in association with the UK anthropologist and social scientist Gregory Bateson (1904-80).


Benefits of NLP

The field of psychotherapy is a whole lot of science on the structure of mental and behavior disorders, and nothing but philosophy on the structure of getting well, while NLP has a refreshingly pragmatic approach.

In coaching and therapy, NLP is a rapid and drug free intervention, which makes it cheaper and safer than spending years lying on a psychiatrists couch, being encouraged to cry and talk about your issues and gobble down more dependence-inducing drugs. In personal development, itís a great structure for success.
