Many people have heard of NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming (or even Neurolinguistic Programming). It gets mentioned quite a lot on the web, in the media and in conversations.
Yet there seems to be many versions of what it is – but finding a simple, straightforward and Plain English answer to the question Just what exactly is NLP? isn’t so easy.
So this page aims to provide you with that answer!
Your personal ‘owner’s manual’
NLP is a bit like an ‘owners manual’ on how to use your brain! At school and college we learned wonderful things like history and geography and algebra. But we did not learn much about how to feel good or to have great relationships.
That’s where NLP comes in.
NLP is a set of insights and skills
You can use the NLP methods and insights to be more in charge of your thoughts and feelings.
…and to run your own life more successfully.
…and to communicate with other people much more effectively.
NLP is an ever-growing collection of information and insights into how we human beings function. And this is backed up by a huge range of mental NLP Techniques that can enable us to improve how you think, behave and feel – and to assist others in doing the same.
Becoming skilled in NLP will enable you to:
◦ think more clearly.
◦ communicate more effectively with others.
◦ manage your thoughts, moods and behaviours more effectively.
◦ do whatever you already do reasonably well, even better.
◦ acquire skills and attitudes to do what you cannot do right now, but would like to be able to do.
