NLP - Neuro-linguistic programming

Increase your logical, emotional, and intuitive thinking and accomplish more than you think is possible

NLP as a technique was developed at the beginning of the 1970's by Richard Bandler and Dr. John Grinder through the modeling of internal strategies and communication patterns of: Fritz a psychotherapist and founder of the Gestalt School of Therapy, Virginia Satir a famous family therapist, and Milton Erickson a world-renowned hypnotherapist. They noticed that all these successful therapists had very unusual ways of interacting with other people. The first step was to discover their patterns of communication, attitudes and thinking, and then thought the possibility of obtaining similar results in other people by copying this style of interaction.

Neuro-linguistic programming – NLP is a communication model based on the subjective study of language, communication, personal growth and development. It is a system of attitudes, skills and techniques that form a method of understanding the way we think communicate and process emotions.

NLP aims to teach us to understand our inner life, our internal strategies and mechanisms, performances, motivations, drives, emotions, limiting factors, the reception and processing of information and their impact on our behavior and on other people. NLP answers the question: "How do things work?".

NLP opens the doors to the achievement of excellence and shapes it by defining internal strategies, communication patterns, attitudes and specific ways of thinking, and it opens the possibility for other people to do the same easily and effortlessly.

"Neuro" refers to the brain and the nervous system, how to receive and process information. We perceive the world around us through our senses. We utilize our eyes to see (the sense of sight), and also we perceive the world through listening (hearing sense), tasting (sense of taste), smelling (sense of smell), touching and feeling - physically and emotionally kinesthetic). Stimulus i.e. the information from the external environment that we receive through these channels (senses) is then processed by the nervous system. In this way, we create our own "map of the world" i.e. our own perception of reality.

"Linguistic" refers to the language we use to describe our experiences or our reality in the past, in the present or in the future. It is composed of the words we use to explain the information we receive through the senses. NLP deals with the impact of those words on our internal thinking process - how they determine what our mood and behavior will be.

"Programming" refers to psychic processes, feelings, personal habits, behavior patterns, internal strategies, etc. In short, it concerns the question of how we work, how we behave in a day, whether we are exactly following the steps of work while doing a task or a habit, whether we stick to the usual order of things (routine) or not, and how we feel.

According to NLP, success and good results have their own internal structure. They are based on several basic principles that ensure NLP's effectiveness in terms of individual flexibility, an impartial approach without criticism and a position of acceptance, freedom and focus on the goal. One of the main goals of NLP is to give the individual a greater choice and to make that choice clear to him, which directly affects his ability to take his life in his own hands.

Effective communication and a successful approach focused on finding solutions are the two main reasons why NLP coaching is appreciated in all the different fields where it is applied.
