NLP is a science and methodology for understanding and changing human behaviour. It is the study of someone’s subjective, perceived, reality. NLP allows us to understand ‘how’ we do something, not ‘why’. It is based on the assumption that when we are born, we are a clean sheet with regards to fears and emotional baggage. We are like shiny diamonds at our birth, until the mud of life is thrown on us, and we can forget that we are diamonds and think we are muddy stones! Babies only have two inherent fears – loud noises and falling – everything else is programmed as we go through life, picking up responses and coping strategies from those around us. NLP identifies our pattern for how we do something and this awareness allows us to change it.
