Before you Book your NLP Training –

Some NLP Background:

NLP has relevance in all day to day communication and has been described as “The Study of the Structure of Subjective Experience”.

Lizzi formally began studying and practicing NLP in 2002 and is now a Regional Ambassador for ANLP.

NLP explores the diverse approaches we each adopt to orientate ourselves within the world around us.  It helps us to make sense of the rich variety and complexity of information we experience and helps us in responding with elegance (or not depending on our skill level and the situation).

We all have the potential to be highly effective in some situations yet in others seeming to make the most unlikely of choices resulting in less than desirable outcomes.  NLP is firstly about personal mastery (understanding and flexibility of self), identifying how we can learn from all experiences to enable us to make effective decisions that drive positive outcomes more often, thus creating choice for ourselves and others.

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neuro – The brain and neurology, the way we process information from our senses through our brain and nervous system.

Linguistic– The verbal and non verbal language that we use and the response we have to that of others. Coding our experiences through linguistics in order to communicate with ourselves and others.

Programming – Internal thoughts and patterns which help evaluate situations, solve problems and make decisions. How we interpret the world around us creating an internal representation of our experiences and how our thoughts then translate into emotions which affect our physiology and behaviour.

History of NLP

NLP evolved from a collaboration in the 1970s between Richard Bandler (a maths student) and John Grinder an associate professor of linguistics.  The roots of NLP lie within a number of fields and centre upon modelling human language and behaviour.

Bandler had been transcribing audio and video of Fritz Perls’ (father of Gestalt Therapy) and Virginia Satir (Family Therapy founder). He noticed that by replicating key aspects of their language and behaviour he could achieve similar results and even began running his own Gestalt sessions at the university campus!

Grinder became intrigued and worked with Bandler to refine the core elements that made a difference, distilling the work of Perls and Satir into amongst other things “the meta model” – a language model still at the core of NLP today.

So the concept of modelling and the study of excellence began. With a key discovery being made… that whilst we do indeed experience the world subjectively, how we code, interpret and think about something affects how we experience it!

Bandler and Grinder went on to model Milton Erickson a medical hypnotist and developed another language model (Milton model) and NLP began to grow and evolve with further innovators creating new tools and techniques.

Perhaps one of the most generative of innovators has been Robert Dilts who was a student at the university at the same time as Bandler and one of the first to get involved in their work. He has created numerous change patterns and with NLP continually evolving who is to say where it will go next…
