What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

I believe that everyone has the power to become the person they want to be, and the potential to become incredible at what they do.

David Shephard

NLP is a psychological approach that was developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.

NLP is founded on the idea that we all have internal ‘maps’ of the world which determine how we respond to our circumstances, how we think, feel and act. 

Our ‘maps’ are shaped by our experiences or more accurately, the meaning that we attach to our experiences, our perception. 

NLP uses various techniques to open up a pathway between our conscious and our unconscious mind so that we are able to detect and modify unconscious biases or limitations of your map that are creating unhelpful patterns in your life. 

Some techniques are set up to change how we experience things by switching our perception. While others work at an even deeper level by accessing our timeline (where all our memories and emotions are stored) to make changes right at the source. 

One of the great things about NLP is that transformation can happen just through conversation too.
