NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming, is based on the work of Richard Bandler & John Grinder and is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feelings, language and behaviour to produce the results they do.
It provides us with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field.
So let us break it down….
Neuro is brain. We each have our own unique information filtering system. Everything we see hear taste smell is filtered through this first map.
We then give that information personal meaning and assign language to it creating the second map: Linguistics or Language Programming. This is the behaviour that results from the maps (neural pathways) we have made of the world around us. – Sometimes they are wonderful maps that work in our favour and sometimes they are not.
Being able to understand how people represent the world to themselves is incredibly useful for my work. This is another modality that I use in virtually every session in one form or another.

These MAPS lead onto one of the main principles of NLP which is the Map Is Not The Territory, meaning, reality is the territory and the map is just the thoughts and feelings we have about the territory.most people have it mixed up thinking that the thoughts and feelings are reality (the territory) but they are not … the good news is if you change the map you change the way the territory looks to you.

Another principle is that everyone has within them all the necessary resources needed to change.
I use NLP sometimes as a standalone treatment (as there are some incredibly fast processes and I specialise in processes that are fast) but more often that not, as an adjunct for another modality I am using to enhance its effectiveness.
