What Is ANCD, or NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a personal development system which is like a user manual for the brain. It allows you to become aware of how you operate – all your beliefs, values, states, emotions, thinking and inner voices and allows you to change your operations if they are not as effective as you would like. It is both an art and a behavioural science and is considered by many to be the most effective behavioural change technology on the planet today.
NLP allows us to create new patterns (programming) through communicating (linguistics) in the mind (neurology), hence the term Neuro Linguistic Programming.
NLP began in Santa Cruz, California in the early 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in association with Gregory Bateson. A core idea of NLP is that an individual’s thoughts, gestures and words interact to create one’s perception of the world. In other words it is essential to take responsibility for what is happening in your life. Many other approaches suggest this same premise however NLP shows you how to take charge of every action and reaction, using a number of rapid techniques than can facilitate change in a person and put that person back in charge of their own mind and therefore their outcome.
