Neuro-Linguistic Programming (N.L.P.) was developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, largely based upon the work of Milton Erickson, Gregory Bateson, Virginia Satir and Fritz Perls. It has been described as ‘The study of excellence’, the effect of words on brains.
By increasing our awareness of another person’s reality, we are better able to understand that person. This is invaluable in gaining rapport and improving communication, as well as helping them overcome negative programming and move beyond limiting beliefs.
N.L.P. is a huge subject and, contrary to popular belief, is not about amassing loads of information. The key distinction here, is in utilising the essence of N.L.P. We know that the essence of anything is far more potent than the watered-down version.
An easy way to think about Advanced Hypnotherapy, is that N.L.P., Timeline, Inner Child Therapy, Gestalt, make up the tools, while the hypnosis is the delivery system, allowing those tools to work at maximum effectiveness. It’s an excellent system for regularly achieving maximum results in minimum time.
