Neuro-Linguistic Programming (nlp)
While most of us are aware that our thoughts, words and actions create our daily reality it can be challenging to create lasting positive change through conscious desire and effort alone while we are actually functioning from unconscious patterns, habits and programs 90-95% of the time.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a set of specific techniques which align the conscious and unconscious mind and body. It enables individuals to quickly and effectively re-design their physical and emotional responses to their world to produce the best possible results in all aspects of their lives.
NlP was developed in the 1970's by scientist Richard Bandler and linguist John Grinder from their studies of highly successful therapists, Virginia Satir (Family therapist), Fritz Perls (Gestalt therapist) and Milton Erikson (the Father of modern Hypnotherapy). These three therapists were transforming their clients' ways of thinking, feeling and behaving in seemingly miraculous ways.
Bandler and Grindler aimed to discover exactly what occured in the minds and bodies of clients at the moment change occured. The resulting techniques of NLP enable people to effectively gain control of their minds and therefore their behavioural results in a matter of hours rather than years.
