What is NLP?

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming

The concept was created over 30 years or so by philosopher and psychologist Richard Bandler and linguist John Grinder who were modelling the best of the best in terms of performance and results in the field of therapy and communication .

From that they put together a set of practices which were designed to address a whole range of issues a psychiatrist or therapist would encounter.

These practices have been developed over the last 30 years and can be exceptional and extremely fast compared to traditional therapies which could take several weeks or even months. The difference is NLP works with both the conscious and the unconscious mind.


When using NLP it is common to have positive change within one or two sessions, often with exceptional results.

NLP is now widely used in counselling, education, coaching and business for more effective communication, personal development and accelerated learning.

In short NLP is the art and science of personal excellence.

NLP works much like peeling an onion and what lies at the core is often very simple !
