HISTORY OF NLP

Neuro Linguistic Programming is a hybrid science that was developed in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s by computer scientist, Richard Bandler, and linguist, John Grinder.

From the combined perspectives of their respective sciences, they began a study of three therapists. The therapists were producing excellent results, transforming their client’s ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. They modelled Family therapist, Virginia Satir, Gestalt therapist, Fritz Perls and hypnotherapist, Milton Erickson, who legitimised hypnotherapy as a healing treatment modality accepted by the A.M.A. (American Medical Association).

Bandler and Grinder were looking to discover exactly what transpired in the minds and bodies of patients at the moment change occurred. They asked what specifically caused the change and how they cold replicate it more quickly and efficiently, without years of therapy.

In addition, Bandler and Grinder examined what was occurring in the minds and behaviours of the therapists who achieved such great successes with their patients. Bandler and Grinder wanted to describe the steps of the therapeutic process itself to teach others step by step how to achieve the exact same result in less time.

 The techniques Bandler and Grinder developed by modelling Satir, Perls and Erickson are so concise and effective that the behavioural changes that used to take years now can occur within a matter of hours or minutes. In the decades since its inception NLP has proven a reliable and fast way for people to gain control of their minds and therefore there results.

What is NLP?

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a set of specific techniques that deliberately restructure toward positive functioning of the brain’s thinking and the body’s behaviours by aligning the conscious with the unconscious mind and body. NLP offers highly refined tools to take charge of every area of life in the most effective way possible to produce results. It enables individuals to proactively design their physical and emotional responses.

 Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a set of specific techniques that deliberately restructure the brain and the body’s behaviours toward positive function through the alignment of the conscious and unconscious mind and body. NLP offers highly refined tools to take charge of every area of life in the most effective and efficient way possible to produce results. It enables individuals to proactively design their physical and emotional responses and therefore, their results.

 The three components of NLP are:

 NEURO

 The nervous system’s taking in of life or reality through the five senses

  • Sight (Visual)
  • Sound (Auditory)
  • Touch (Kinaesthetic)
  • Smell (Olfactory)
  • Taste (Gustatory)

 Understanding how the body and mind neurology works to better direct it toward more effective thoughts and behaviours.

 Creating new neurological pathways that break through mental boundary conditions.

 LINGUISTIC

 Becoming aware of how communication occurs within self and with others;

  • Pictures
  • Sounds
  • Feelings
  • Tastes
  • Smells
  • Internal dialogue

 Using language to guide the mind toward change.

 Speaking to others within their particular representational system or their model of the world.

 PROGRAMMING

Understanding the mind is like a computer with though patterns as the software and discovering what programs are determining current experience.

Using specific tools and techniques to reprogram, upgrade and install new software for optimal high performance.
