What is NLP?
So, you’ve found yourself browsing our website and wondering exactly what NLP is.
NLP as we know it was founded in the 1970’s by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. They were particularly interested in why some people failed whilst others excelled, why some people were excellent communicators and why some people excelled at personal change. They modelled (studied) people that they believed were experts at what they did and proceeded to uncover their mindsets, the ways they did what they did and their strategies and values.
There are now many definitions of NLP, Richard Bandler says that “NLP is an attitude of curiosity and a willingness to experiment and THAT has left behind a trail of techniques”. Our favourite definition here at Creating Bright Futures is that NLP is essentially “an instruction manual for the mind”.
Psychology Today magazine said that “NLP is arguably the most powerful Behavioural Science on the planet today”. Science Digest describes NLP as “the most powerful vehicle for change in existance”.
NLP doesn’t tell you what to do but instead offers you solutions to change things for you to behave or feel how you wish. NLP offers the “how”. NLP stands for
Neuro – the way we think and our mindset;
Linguistic – this is about language both verbal and non verbal;
Programming – our behaviours and our emotions.
The NLP tools, techniques and processes that we have in our “toolbox” help our clients remove negative emotions, change their way of thinking, their behaviours and the limiting beliefs they have about themselves. We tell our clients that, by changing the way they think they can achieve more in life and in business.
NLP is NOT about mind manipulation – (Creating Bright Futures cannot and would not want to manipulate your mind using NLP). Your own values will always protect you from allowing you to do anything you are not comfortable with.
