NLP explores the relationship between how we think (neuro), how we communicate both verbally and non-verbally (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour (programs).
What NLP founders (John Grinder and Richard Bandler) did was to study how three of the best therapists they knew of thought, behaved and communicated, and from that study, created models of how we can all learn to do these things as well as they did. The 3 people John and Richard studied were 3 very different therapists who were getting outstanding results. They were, Virginia Satir, an amazingly effective family therapist, Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy, and Milton Erickson, a psychiatrist, who got amazing results with hypnotherapy. NLP developed out of the patterns that were seen in each of these three, or more specifically, the intersection of these three patterns.
While NLP did start out in the field of therapy, the principles and techniques developed out of it are applicable and useful in many different fields, such as business, sales and marketing; education, teaching and learning; sports and other skills performance improvement. NLP techniques can help you to improve and achieve excellence in any field of endeavor.

So it is important first of all, to be precise about the result you want. With NLP principles, Nancy can help you to formulate your outcomes and clear the way to achieving them.

"Learning NLP and becoming an NLP Master Practitioner, not only gave me, as a therapist, new effective techniques to apply therapeutically, but helped me to improve my effectiveness as a therapist no matter what technique of therapeutic intervention, or direction of therapy I happened to be using, whether NLP, hypnosis, EFT, or art therapy." - Nancy
