What is NLP?

NLP is Neuro-Linguistic Programming. NLP teaches us that how we speak and act, especially the language or words that we use has an impact on how we feel and think. Using the correct language has the power to programme our own brains to feel better about ourselves and the world around us. If you wish to find out more look at the links and resources pages.
