About NLP

What is NLP?

Let’s start with the name. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was born from the belief that there is a strong connection between:

  • Thinking (neurological processes or ‘Neuro’)
  • Language (‘Linguistic’) &
  • Behavioural patterns that have been learned through experience (‘Programming’).

NLP is an approach to psychotherapy and organisational change based on the relationship between subjective experiences (particularly patterns of thought) and successful patterns of behaviour. Founded in the 1970’s, NLP has since proved to be a very effective tool in increasing self-awareness, improving communication and changing patterns of mental and emotional behaviour in a positive way.

It is based on the search for, and study of, the factors which account for either success or failure in human performance.

At Smile Hypnotherapy, we can employ a wide range of NLP tools and techniques which are designed to help you achieve positive change in your life.
