Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States in the 1970s 


Neuro is relating to the nervous system. The information we take in through our senses influences our neurological function. If we improve the accuracy with which we take in information, i.e. we listen better and are more observant, we are more open to our own and other people’ feelings. This means our brains have better information to help them make decisions. We also increase our ability to communicate effectively (both consciously and unconsciously) 


Linguistic is about language. As we understand and are more aware of language – the words themselves as well as their structure and the way they’re spoken (speed, voice tone, rhythm), so we get better information for making decisions and communicating consciously and unconsciously 


Programming here refers to habits. We develop some useful habit and some, less useful. NLP teaches us how we can develop and encourage useful habits and reduce those which aren’t as beneficial
