What is NLP?
Neuro Linguistic Programming was developed in 1970s by Richard Bandler and Dr John Grinder. They were fascinated by how some people could get through in difficult circumstances even in poor health, while others failed to strive in similar situations.
Together they developed a technique that empowered individuals by helping them to think efficiently and enhance their communication skills. They called it Neuro Linguistic Programming because it involves the understanding of our neurological system, how the words we speak influence others and how our thinking patterns assist us to achieve our goals.
We all experience the world and process information using our senses in different ways. Our thoughts are processed by our neurological system, which affects our emotions, behaviors and responses at a physiological level.
It is now widely accepted and recognized how our perceptions, emotions and thought processes affect not only our achievements, but also our health and our chances to live a fulfilling and healthy life.
NLP might sound very technical: • neuro-linguistic means how the brain relates and responds to language, • programming in this means using what we know about the brain’s relationship with language to make a positive impact on a client’s behaviour.
How Does it Work
Every word in the dictionary conveys meaning, but some have a stronger impact on the brain than others in terms of things like calming effect, or suggestive value. Thinking about the brain as a machine for a second, most of the data it receives about the world is through languages. These include: • Spoken language • The written word • Body Language • Social/Cultural Language (agreed meanings, for example, the red light on a traffic light means ‘stop.’) With so much language data going into our brains on a daily basis, and affecting how we make day to day decisions, It stands to reason that having a solid understanding of how language is processed allows you to use it in a more productive way. At ML Fuentes, we harness the power of language and use it to help our clients enrich their lives, treatments such as hypnotherapy are highly NLP focussed, and produce excellent results for those who want to give up unwanted habits, help people cope with pain or illness, gain confidence, or prepare for a period of intense learning.
