Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of excellence, which describes how the language of our mind produces our behaviour, and allows us to model excellence and to reproduce that excellent behaviour.
NLP takes the viewpoint of looking at “how” the system works, not “why”. Neuro Linguistic Programming, has been mystified over the years and somewhat complicated by long technical words that confuse even the train spotters amongst us. The official definition is that NLP is an
“attitude and a methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques.”That’s a bit of a mouthful in itself! In practical terms, it’s about success.
It’s about knowing that whatever someone else can do, so can you. This has been proven scientifically as well as seen from examples in the world. The well-known multi-millionaire Anthony Robbins started out as a Janitor before finding NLP. What you will discover, if you choose to further your path with NLP is that you will start achieving the things that you always wanted to do. Whether it be money, relationships, career, health or sports, NLP can and does create excellence in the area you choose to use it in.
How does it work?
The way we train with you at NLP World, you’ll see how fun and play are a huge part of any learning cycle. From this perspective, we show you how the masters got their fantastic results in various different distinctions of business and therapy. For instance the arena of anchoring (which the advertising world has adopted as its saviour) came from Pavlov (remember the dogs and the bell); so what did he do and HOW does it work?
The area of Lateral thinking, Edward De bono claimed it, but never explained HOW to do it. You’ll discover the HOW to do these and the many other techniques and be able to perform with the same consistency, allowing you to shift yourself and clients from the effect side of the equation to cause quickly and gracefully.
The attitude of an NLP Practitioner is one of curiosity and experimentation. We know that there are many ways to get results, so the job of a good businessman or therapist is to have flexibility —and good techniques. Next, the methodology, which is about modeling, the process of duplicating excellent behavior. Another person’s behavior can be duplicated by studying what that person does inside their head (language, filters, programs, etc.) to produce results.
Richard Bandler and John Grinder, who began modeling and duplicating the “magical results” of a few top communicators and therapists, initially created NLP in 1975. Some of the first people to be studied included Hypnotherapist Milton Erickson, gestalt Gestalt in NLP is a collection of memories… therapist Fritz Perls and family therapist Virginia Satir. Since then, many others have contributed to the growth and development of the field. And finally, the trail of techniques created through this type of modelling is what is commonly known as NLP. The programs in this catalogue describe the many different techniques we teach and use.
Today, NLP is widely used in business to improve management, sales and achievement/performance, inter-personal skills; in education to better understand learning styles, develop Rapport with students and parents and to aid in motivation; and of course, NLP is a profound set of tools for personal development. The originators said that NLP is based on Attitude, Methodology, and recognising and changing the Programming.
Can anyone do it?
Sure you can surf the Internet! And we know you know computers, because you’re using one now! …….. but what about your mind? New technology finally makes it easy to understand how we think, how we communicate, and how we process emotions! If you understand anything about computers, you already understand something about how NLP works. Computers are about man-machine interface. NLP is about mind-body interface. The entire process is very similar! Maybe it’s time to learn about your own personal computer — your mind!
Quotes from Press and media.
“You’ve managed to use a Web Browser and you’re here, aren’t you? But how much do you know about what’s going on inside yourself and others? Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is about just that. Knowing about what is going on inside you and what’s going on inside others! Perhaps you’ve wondered, “How do I communicate better,” or, “How do I get in control of my own personal computer — my brain!”—The internet (Today)
” NLP cannot be dismissed as just another hustle. Its theoretical underpinnings represent an ambitious attempt to codify and synthesize the insights of linguistics, body language, and the study of communication systems.”— Psychology Today.
“NLP offers the potential for making changes without the usual agony that accompanies these phenomena … Thus it affords the opportunity to gain flexibility, creativity, and greater freedom of action than most of us now know…”— Training and Development Journal.
“…estate brokers and salespeople use Neuro-Linguistics to enhance their communication skills and provide them with more choices when working in a difficult situation… it shows how we make sense of the world around us and communicate.”— Estate Today.

Preparation for the Training – Home Study
Our unique process gets you started right away with the entire training on our online program. You watch/listen to the online program twice at your own pace, then come to any of our scheduled training and finish your training. You will have ample opportunity at the training to deal with past issues for yourself whilst also learning the skills of NLP, Time Based Techniques and Hypnotherapy to use for your business or therapy clients.
In the Time Based Techniques section we show you how to pinpoint specific memories (even ones you may have forgotten all about or are way back before you could consciously remember) and help to clear any old emotional baggage on them forever. Limiting beliefs can also be dealt with using Time Based Techniques. We used to train Time Line Therapy™ effectively, but now use the more streamlined and flexible TBT.
NLP has been around for about 30 years and is now well established in most areas of life including advertising, politics (NLP World has delivered training to the Cabinet Office), within blue chip companies (see our business pages) in the health industry and in the education department (NLP World personnel have been used by the education department coaching teachers and pupils).
It looks like NLP is here to stay, so perhaps it’s time for you to get on board the ship that is still going places and find how you can use NLP in your life and profession! The ANLP provides accreditation for Practitioners and our Practitioner courses provide ANLP Accreditation.
