NLP is an offshoot of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. It originated in the 1970s from the work of Dr Richard Bandler – a Mathematician, and John Grinder – a linguist. They studied the work of three highly successful but very different therapists: Fritz Perls, the originator of Gestalt Therapy, Virginia Satir, the brilliant family therapist and Milton Erickson MD, the phenomenally successful Medical hypnotherapist. Bandler and Grinder wanted to know how to do what these three acknowledged geniuses did so successfully, even though their work appeared to be magically intuitive and the therapists themselves were unable to adequately explain what they did.
The achievement of Bandler and Grinder is that they were able to identify and break down the common language and behaviour patterns used by their therapeutic wizards in such a way that anybody interested could learn to do it too.Today NLP is a proven tool for getting results and creating success in the world. Its powerful but simple techniques are used in business, sales, training, coaching, health, therapy, and resource development. It will help you achieve excellence in all areas of your life.
