What is NLP?
NLP is widely used within the fields of personal development, coaching, business, education and sports. NLP offers you an understanding of how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce their results. NLP provides people with a methodology to model excellent behaviour and outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field.
Each person establishes their own unique mental filtering system for processing the millions of bits of data being absorbed through their 5 senses. Our first mental map of the world is made up of internal images, sounds, physical awareness, internal sensations, tastes and smells that form as a result of the neurological filtering process.
We then assign personal meaning to the information being received from the outside world. Assigning language to the internal images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, thus forming everyday conscious awareness. The second mental map is called the Linguistic Map (sometimes referred to as Linguistic Representation)
The behavioural response that occurs as a result of neurological filtering processes and the subsequent linguistic map.
