NLP takes advantage of the brain's Natural Plasticity (programmability) attested to by brain scanns before and after talk therapies.
Clearly Lay Gnosis would be of great help to the NLP practioner and client.
A spiel here on NLP
What is NLP?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an incredibly powerful discipline that enables people to unblock the structures of human communication and human excellence. By doing so people can think, communicate and manage themselves, and others, more effectively.
NLP explores the relationships between how we think (neuro), how we communicate (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes).
By studying and learning from these relationships people can effectively transform the way they traditionally think and act, adopting new, far more successful models of human excellence. (This activity is called modelling and is a key feature that distinguishes NLP from psychology).
In effect, NLP is a powerful change management tool that transforms the way people think and act to have the greatest impact both professionally and personally. That?s why NLP is one of the most powerful skills used in business management, psychology, sales, sports coaching and all forms of personal development.
