WHAT IS NLP?

NLP is a very personal journey.  It is different for everyone. When I came to write this page, I thought the best place to start might be to ask what NLP means to some of the people I have coached and trained over the last decade.

I believe that you have to experience NLP to really understand it.

I could explain the process and theory of swimming, however until you get in the water, you’ll never really ‘get it’!

For me NLP is a framework for modelling excellence and learning how to learn, quickly.

[/av_textblock] [av_toggle_container initial=’1′ mode=’accordion’ sort=” custom_class=”] [av_toggle title=’NLP is…’ tags=”]
  • “The study of how humans work”
  • “A set of tools and techniques for manifesting that which we desire and letting go of that which we don’t”
  • “A way of connecting with our inner knowledge and changing/reprogramming our subconscious, so that we can get the results we want for ourselves… and others”

Describing NLP…

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” custom_class=”]

There are many different ways to describe NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming. I’ve heard people describe it as a way of ‘modelling excellence’… the ‘difference that makes a difference’… or the ‘study of what works’.

I love all of these descriptions and yet, until you’ve swam, you’ll never really understand swimming just from someone talking about it. Like I said, it’s in the experience!

Richard Bandler, one of the co-founders of NLP once put forward this definition.  It is “an attitude and a methodology leading to a trail of techniques. The issue is not the techniques, but about developing the attitude and the skills for modelling. Only then do you suddenly find yourself developing your own techniques”.

In my own experience, I’ve seen many NLP Trainers put the cart before the horse. They teach NLP techniques.  But NLP is not just a set of tools or techniques.

Bandler said that “the attitude is about curiosity and wanton experimentation. The methodology is about modelling; extracting the thoughts and behaviours that create success. Having the first two leads to a trail of techniques that ultimately help you to succeed in whatever endeavour you are looking at”.

  • “A way to transform your life with magic!”
  • “A mirror – it helps me to see myself and my behaviours objectively”
  • “Making sense of life and living it to the fullest”!
  • “Learning the structure of knowledge and magic”
  • “Learning the art of deep and transformational listening”
  • “Discovering and living out our full potential”

NLP IS A WAY TO LIVE A PROFOUND LIFE

I sometimes liken our mind to a super-computer. However, we didn’t come with a user manual.

Many of us have been ‘programmed’ ineffectively by our families, schools and cultures etc. We have ‘out of date software’.  The amazing thing is that we can unravel those old habits or ‘programmes’ that no longer serve.  We can update our software so it operates in a way we want.

You will come away from your NLP experience with me, having accelerated your ability to create a profound life in a way that is full of learning, integrity, freedom and choice.

You will discover the essence of excellence in yourself and perhaps more importantly, be able to do that for others too.

  • gives us a framework to begin unravelling those patterns that no longer support us in being all we can be.
  • provides a pathway for personal, professional and even spiritual development unlike anything else.
  • explains how you make sense of your world and how to be what you want to be

BEYOND NLP

Not surprisingly, there are many misunderstandings about what NLP is. Like I said, some NLP Trainers focus on the tools and techniques that have been developed from NLP. While these have their place, they are not NLP itself.

  • “The development of self-awareness to find inner peace and to learn effective inter-personal communication”
  • “A mode of healing”
  • “A way to look differently at things and so improve myself and my life”
