NLP and communication
NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming), refers to a method of psychotherapy and behaviour change centred on interpersonal communication.
This communication affects patterns of behaviour and their outcome in terms of personal experiences.
NLP compares thoughts and beliefs to software applications; by changing the programs, individuals can alter their behaviour.
It employs self-awareness and effective communication to change emotional and mental behaviour.
The four NLP pillars are rapport, sensory awareness, outcome thinking and behavioural flexibility.
The fundamental idea of NLP is that the words we use reflect our inner, subconscious perception of our world, our problems and ourselves.
If any of these words and perceptions are inaccurate, and we continue to think of them and use them, the underlying issues will remain.
This is when our attitudes become self-fulfilling prophecies.
At the core of NLP is a wide range of techniques and models that give us an understanding of how people think, behave and change.
- The NLP approach is flexible and accommodating and can yield positive change within an individual in a short amount of time.
- It empowers people to adapt to the constant ebb and flow of change within themselves.
- It is a powerful tool that will enable an individual to understand ‘why’ they do what they do.
- This form of coaching shows how their feelings and behaviours can make sense based on everyday life and the world around them.
- NLP is a method of coaching which has a set of powerful techniques that can assist an individual in making quick and lasting changes to their behaviour.
