What is Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP)?

Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), originally created in 1975 by Richard
Bandler and John Grinder, is the study of subjective experience. NLP is based
on modeling the successful work of Virginia Satir, Milton Erickson, Fritz Perls and others. These clinicians were able to create change in their clients by altering the way they processed information. NLP uncovers a person’s motivational strategy as well as their unique way of processing information and uses this to create fast, effective change.

Today, NLP is widely used in business to improve management, sales and achievement/performance, interpersonal skills; in the arena of personal development to create positive relationships, increase energy, improve self esteem; in education to assist with various learning styles, develop rapport, to aid in motivation; and more.

Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) is a set of guiding principles, attitudes, and techniques. It allows you to change, incorporate, or eliminate behaviors and gives you the ability to choose your mental, emotional, and physical states of well-being. With NLP, you learn how to grow from every single life experience; there is no such thing as "failure"- only feedback! This is based on the belief that all experiences provide material for positive change. NLP is a very practical approach to behavioral change, giving you the tools to produce your desired results, allowing you to create your own future.

What makes NLP treatment so effective?

NLP is so effective because your subconscious mind, or emotional center, stores all of your earliest emotional and experiential imprints, both positive and negative. These imprints create the beliefs that you have about yourself. These beliefs along with your unique way of processing information create the patterns at work in your life today.

We have all had the experience of seeing a "pattern" at work in our lives that we feel unable to change. Perhaps you have difficulty establishing healthy relationships, you have repeated conflict in your work environment, or continued "bad luck" with finances. Perhaps you struggle with addictive behavior, low self worth or chronic health problems. The basis of all your experiences originates in your subconscious mind and the "programming" you have created based on this subconscious information. Working with these subconscious beliefs by modifying negative programming allows you to break these old patterns and create positive, long-term change.

How is NLP Different from Traditional Psychotherapy?

While Psychotherapy offers tools for understanding your limitations and blocks, NLP offers the tools for change. Although Psychotherapy can assist with insight and understanding, psychotherapy alone is often unable to change the problem behavior, as many long-term psychotherapy clients will attest. As a Psychotherapist I value the process of understanding and insight. However, the outcome of change is equally important. NLP creates change in behavior and is designed as a short-term treatment, as compared with the longer-term treatment seen with Psychotherapy. Most issues are resolved in one to five treatment sessions.
