NLP guide videoNLP (neuro linguistic programming) uses methods to alter beliefs that are associated with negative aspects into positive outcomes. NLP practitioners identify the perception of a problem by watching verbal and non-verbal communication and then help an individual reprogram the mind to perceive the problem in a different way.

In this film, one of the creators of NLP, Richard Bandler, explains NLP and how it can benefit a variety of problems.


Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) came out of the work that I did modelling the way people thought, what we did was so unique. When I started out there were 40 schools of psychotherapy all arguing about who had the right approach when none of them reliably could do a single thing. They couldn’t fix phobias, they couldn’t do this, they couldn’t do that. Once in a while they were successful but most of the time they were so busy arguing about the theories.

What I started looking at was the natch process by which people started making changes, we looked at the neurological configurations, we looked at the linguistic structures that are hard wired in the mind and found out about how people learn. So that people can be able to programme, just like you programme a computer, to be able to programme themselves to be able to do things.

NLP helping phobias

We can reliably get rid of a phobia in ten minutes every single time because we found out, not by studying people that had phobias but by studying people who had got over phobias how they did it. What they did at the neurological level and what they did at the subjective level. NLP is the study of the structure of subjectivity, the way in which we make pictures, where they’re located, how big they are and where we locate our voices and how we alter our feelings and what are called emotional states, whether they rotate this way or that way all of those little details give you a set of tools by which people can make profound changes easily and quickly
