“Helping you understand how people work”


What is N.L.P?
Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP, as it is more commonly known, is the study of how you process your thoughts, and how you communicate those thoughts with yourself and with other people. NLP pays particular attention to people who excel in their field by modelling their thought patterns and techniques, and then replicating them in different situations. It looks for the ‘difference that makes the difference’ NLP is about doing what happens naturally on purpose!

John Grinder, a linguist, and Richard Bandler, who was a mathematician and a programmer, discovered the principals of N.L.P. when conducting research into the language patterns used by leading therapists in California in the 1970s.

The Name
Neuro - Our neurological system uses our 5 senses to experience the world, and then to process those experiences in our brain.
Linguistic - Language is the tool we use to represent our experiences, and to communicate them to other people.
Programming - This refers to the sequence of our neurological experience and the way that we organise our ideas and thought patterns. If you alter the sequence, you alter the behaviour.

The 4 Elements
There are 4 key elements in understanding and practising N.L.P. -
Outcomes - We need a clear sense of what we want to achieve from any interaction, without this it is unlikely to be successful.
Sensory Acuity - For communication to be effective, we need to make full use of our senses to notice what effect our action is having on the receiver.
Flexibility - If we are not achieving our desired outcome, then we need to have the flexibility to alter our behaviour in order to achieve that outcome.
Rapport - In the same way a plant can not flourish without water, communication can not flourish without rapport.
