What is NLP?

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s. The title refers to a stated connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”) and behavioural patterns that have been learned through experience (“programming”) and can be organised to achieve specific goals in life.

The founders of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, say that NLP is capable of addressing problems such as phobias, depression, habit disorder, psychosomatic illnesses, and learning disorders. Their stated aim was in “finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives.”

Bandler and Grinder claimed that if the effective patterns of behaviour of exceptional people could be modelled then these patterns could be acquired by others.

NLP has now been adopted by private coaches,  therapists, hypnotherapists, and in management workshops, seminars and training programmes for business and government.
