NLP Tips, Techniques, &
Over 100 articles on the
practical applications of NLP
NLP is famous for its range of techniques.
It has techniques for changing and improving just about anything you do!
We aim to be a source of free, interesting, stimulating and, occasionally, humorous or provocative NLP
information, ideas and methods.
We have been online since
1998 and running NLP trainings for 30 years so there is a lot of free to
read information here - over 100 articles in fact. That's why we have
arranged them in seven sections.
If you don't find what you want in one section try the
others - many articles just refused to be categorised:

There is a lot more to
goals than SMART objectives. This section details the kind of precision
that NLP brings to designing and implementing goals and objectives

NLP techniques: tips of icebergs...
NLP techniques are designed to be
supported by a lot of subtle skills such rapport, calibration, language patterns, anchoring,
belief preparation, etc.
Ideally, these skills need to be learned in live and in-depth training programmes where you are
interacting with others and have feedback from the trainer - which is what
happens on our NLP Practitioner Programme
That said, you can often obtain
good results through using them on their own
- just be aware that this may be the reason why they're not as amazing as they appeared on
or in that book. (And, let's face it, would you post a video if your
technique didn't work?)
Do the techniques work?
Yes, even if your only experience of NLP has been through books
or videos you can still benefit from the techniques, and perhaps help
others. You do need to carefully follow the descriptions
and be prepared to experiment a bit.
many online demonstrations of NLP techniques rely on the 'experiencer'
having an excellent ability to visualise - even though, in the real world, many
of us do not have such a refined ability to visualise on demand.
like this ask the person to pretend they are visualising and the techniques will
quite often work just as well!
