What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

What is neuro linguistic programming

In this article, you will learn about Neuro Linguistic Programming - a coaching method to create the life, health, wealth and love you want. 

What if you everything you want to achieve is within your power? All problems beatable and all goals achievable. 

What prevents people from overcoming their problems and realising their dreams are the limiting thoughts, past uncomfortable events and negative emotions.

This is where Neuro-Lingusitic Programming (NLP) comes in.

It's coaching technique to help people to get from where they are not to where they want to be.

“If you can, you must. 

If you must, you can.”

Tony Robbins


An NLP coach can conduct NLP sessions where they help their clients to figure out:

  • Where are they now?
  • What do they want?
  • What prevents them from what they want
  • How to overcome what prevents and to realise what they want

They can even help them to discover hidden blocks and limits and to eradicate them and to program the desire future from being:

  • Fat to fit
  • Heart-broken to feeling healed
  • Penniless to being able to pay the bills easily
  • Un-fulfilling career to a rewarding profession

NLP was developed by Richard Bandler & John Grinder when they met in the 1970s in California. John Grinder was an Assistant Professor of Linguistics & Richard Bandler was a mathematician & computer expert.

What I love about NLP is how it helps coaches to help their clients to:

  • Effectively manage their emotions, also know as the internal state, for example from distressed to calm 
  • Change their behaviour and adjust to even under the most complicated situation, for example from being aggressive teenager to mature young adult in the face of their parents getting a divorce
  • Understand how to have more supportive communications in their romantic relationships and communications with work colleagues
  • Achieve their desired outcome quickly and effectively.

NLP helps to identify what the underlying problem is, identify the patterns associated with that problem and also provides with the tools and resources to eliminate that issue for good.

NLP Identify Underlying Problem

During NLP Practitioner Training to become a professionally qualified coach, you get to learn over 200 techniques, some of my favorites are:


Wheel of Life - Get clear on where am I now and where do I want to be


Well Formed Outcome - Get clarity on a goal and realise it


Meta Model - How to ask really great questions to get to the root cause of an issue or problem


Belief Change - Uncovering liming beliefs, for example I am not good and changing them to a more empowering one


Perceptual Positions - Resolve conflicts, fights and arguments to create harmony and peace.


Change Personal History - Change a series of events linked to an emotion or belief


Parts Integration - Experience wholeness and get clarity on an indecision


Anchoring - Access positive emotions within seconds, for example motivation 


Swish  - Shift a negative emotion or habit within seconds 


Emotional Blow Out - Dissolve negative emotion or physical tension 


Disney  - Develop a vision and plan for what you want in life


Future Timeline - Visualise a desired future and acquire the resources to make it happen now 


Timeline Technology - Resolve the root of anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt

Many coaching and healing modalities have their roots in NLP.  So once you learn NLP, you have the flexibilty to help many different clients transform and heal.  

You can experience NLP either by attending NLP Practitioner Training or getting a one to one sessions with a qualified Practitioner. 

In all, NLP brings about a positive change in thinking and behaving patterns, thereby triggering personal growth and manifestation of desires.
