Hypnotherapy FAQ's in detail

What is NLP?

In the early 1970's Richard Bandler, a 20 year old university student met and became friends with John Grinder an associate professor of linguistics. Although originally majoring in mathematics and computers Richard Bandler became interested in the work of therapists Virgina Satir and Fritz Perls and began to run various workshops and study groups around their therapy methods and techniques.

Richard Bandler and John Grinder soon began to work together to develop behavioural skills and techniques that would help a person overcome a problem.


Richard Bandlers interpretation as to ‘what is NLP’? is;

"It's an attitude that has to do with curiosity, with wanting to know about things, wanting to be able to influence things, and wanting to be able to influence them in a way that's worthwhile"

"It's an attitude and a methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques."

Broken down the title NLP refers to:

N = Neuro; relating to the human nervous system, including the brain and just as importantly the five senses.

L = Linguistic; the verbal and non-verbal languages i.e. gestures and postures, with which we communicate.

P = Programming; the ability to reprogram or recode our neurological and linguistic systems to achieve the desired results.


Arising from the original collaboration of Richard Bandler and John Grinder came many NLP techniques and methods that are widely used in the field today, such as anchoring, sensory acuity and calibration. By using these methods in association with hypnotherapy we can achieve positive results such as: 

  • Replacing negative behaviours and habits with positive ones

  • Understanding and appreciating the needs of those around us, our family, friends, work colleagues and clients

  • Becoming more successful by learning how to control and influence our emotional and psychological states

  • Changing the way we manage both simple and complicated everyday tasks

  • Becoming aware of the impact we have on others and how we can manage our behaviour to achieve the best results

  • Improving our verbal and non verbal methods of communication

  • Understanding our own motivations, needs and behaviors and using these positively to achieve our goals

By using NLP with hypnosis it's possible to make many deep and lasting changes quickly and easily
