It is classified as a form of personal development and psychotherapy which was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970’s. The name itself explains what we are working with; neurology, language and programming. Originally used as a tool to model excellence, NLP focuses largely on understanding the mental and cognitive processes behind behaviour and providing tools and skills to create individual excellence and empowering beliefs. It is a system of self-discovery whereby you learn to understand you, what your vision is, what hinders and what helps you and how to put it all together to achieve your goals!
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis are also closely linked to NLP.
They form an important part of the process to create new and better behaviours and beliefs.
