The creators of NLP believe that there is a connection between neurological processes, which can be broken down to three distinct words: neuro, language, (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming).

“Neuro” refers to the brain and neural network that feeds into the brain. This network is then used by the nervous system to send, receive, and store information. “Linguistics” is the verbal and non-verbal content that traverses through the neurological pathways. “Programming” is the way in which content or signal is then manipulated or converted into useful information. The premise of NPL is that through reprogramming our brains, we can treat the effects that phobias, depression, near-sightedness, common colds, allergies, psychosomatic illness, and learning disorders can present.


The two main therapeutic uses of NLP are as an adjunct by therapists practicing in other therapeutic disciplines, and as a specific therapy called Neurolinguistic Psychotherapy. NLP has the potential to treat a broad variety of physical and mental conditions, as well as learning difficulties, including:

  • Epilepsy
  • Myopia
  • Schizophrenia
  • Depression
  • PTSD
