What is NLP?
Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) focuses on the connections between physiological processes (neuro-), language (-linguistic) and inner processes (-programs). Human beings differ in the ways they experience the world and communicate. Depending on the way we perceive ourselves and our environment, how we think, feel and communicate; how we evaluate our thoughts and feelings, the same situation can be experienced as interesting and positve or as diffult and negative. NLP offers many tools to help overcome one's limitations and to communicate more effectively with others. NLP changes the quality of our experience and helps people to activate their ressources and develop their potentials.
Where does NLP come from?
NLP was developed in the US in the 1970s. On the basis of system theory, linguistics and neurophysiology Richard Bandler and John Grinder developed a new model of communication. Through NLP-methods the investigated patterns of success became understandable and applicable for everyone. NLP has been developed further and is today widely used in psychotherapy, counseling, coaching, management and business.
