What Does NLP Mean?

The name was chosen by NLP co-developers Richard Bandler and John Grinder to reflect the broad synthesis of diverse ideas and disciplines.

“Neuro” because your experience, conscious and your unconscious, is derived from your senses and central nervous system.

“Linguistic” because your mental processes are also coded, organized and given meaning and transformed through language. Programming because you interact as a system in which experience and communication are composed of patterns or “programs.”
