Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP®)

What it is
NLP includes a wide variety of ideas that help us to understand how we make sense of the world, the habits we have, how we think, behave and change. It offers tools to enable us to be more aware through our senses and language, to clearly know what our outcome is, to be flexible in our approach and to build and maintain rapport with those around us. As a result our communication skills, goal setting and relationships will be better. We will know how to relate to those around us and will know and understand what we do, and how to use it to get the best outcome. It doesn’t involve psychometric questionnaires.

Why We use it
NLP is very useful in a wide number of areas, either with groups or one to one when coaching individuals. Some of the things it contributes to are;

  • Understanding where our personal beliefs come from
  • Understanding how we filter information and that everyone sees the world differently

  • Building rapport with others
  • Managing our own emotional state
  • Feeling empowered and taking responsibility for ourselves
  • Influencing others
