What is NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)


Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is defined as the study of the structure of subjective experience. NLP studies the pattern or “programming” created by the interaction between the brain (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”) and the body.



NLP is the study of communication and modeling excellence. Learning about your own patterns as well as recognizing other people’s patterns allows for flexibility in your own behavior to build rapport, influence and deepen the connection. Being able to ask key questions to elicit the structure of how someone excels in an area of life gives a framework of how we can all excel in that same area.


“I was drawn to NLP initially to strengthen my sales skills. I was already getting great results in my career and I wanted to take my success to the next level. In my first year of studying NLP I was offered a new job and negotiated a 20% pay increase in my income.

What I was learning in my NLP classes was improving all of the relationships in my life, with my clients, my friends, my family and most importantly with my loving partner.
