NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming, uses perceptual, behavioural, & communication techniques to help people change their thoughts & actions.
NLP was originally developed by Dr Richard Bandler and John Grinder. They observed sessions by psychotherapists such as Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir and Milton Erickson, identifying common patterns and positive suggestions which they used to help their clients change.
Once they had identified these patterns, Bandler and Grinder applied them in their own sessions and were able to reproduce similar results.
This was the origin of the first NLP model, The Meta Model.
How is NLP Helpful?
As human beings we are good at “meaning making”, the flip side of this is that we can hold onto unjustified beliefs and ancient injunctions that actually come from nobody relevant to our life in the here and now.
In the video below I explain the origins of The Meta Model and how it can be used to gently challenge those beliefs.
