What is NLP? 
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is The Study of the Structure of SubjectiveExperience and what can be calculated from it. 

It shifts your mind and dysfunctional values, beliefs, thought and emotional patterns to desirable ones without medicines and surgeries, via working through your neurology and brain.  

The Practitioner listens to you, observes you, analyses your strategies and logical patterns and detect if there is any disfunctions or limiting beliefs, or something is missing in the process. She discusses with you what you want and then works out a successful sequence and strategy for you to obtain your wishes and dreams. 

Once they are put together in the proper sequence, they will change your internal representations positively. This set of strategies is called a technique, which when used, would change your behaviour to more desirable one. 

The models that constitute NLP are all formal models based on mathematical, logical principles such as predicate calculus and the mathematical equations underlying holography. What we have done is simplified these so you dont have to know about the mathematical equations or holography because trained practitioner knows how to employ these to make a shift. 
 
How are the NLP building blocks used to observe experts?
NLP has a wide variety of building blocks such as calibration techniques, patterns in the language someone uses, predicates and Meta Model, eye movements and Submodalities, other analytical models such as Logical levels, Meta-programs, perceptual positions, timeframes, etc. 

These tools were not developed in order to observe experts. They were discovered by observing experts. They were developed in order to further evolve human consciousness to the point that people could replicate skills and have deliberate control over their own consciousness.  

Meta Programs describe how people sort through multiple generalizations. As such, they will tell you what lies inside and what lies outside of someones generalizations about things like doors, for example. 

When someone says, Stupid door!”, that gives you a pretty good idea about what lies outside their generalizations about what doors “are”. If you then ask them how they know the door is stupid, theyll give you an answer that will identify their sorting style”, i.e., “Theres no knob,meaning that it can only be a not-stupid-door if it has a knob. If what they want is to be able to open more kinds of doors, then you have to teach them to sort for things other than just a knob in order to identify a door. Thats how Meta-Programs work. They dont just explain what the person is doing. They give you something to do. In this sense, NLP is educational and also widen up your views on options and possibilities in life.  

What are typical NLP applications?
Collapsing Anchors, Visual Squash, V/K dissociation, Change Personal History, Belief Change, Reimprint (all which are sometimes called NLP), are some of the techniques that were derived from applying the models. All these models and techniques can be used in transforming your mind, belief system, emotional patterns and behaviours. 

Isn’t NLP mainly used for therapy and thats where the procedures came from?
NLP never calls anything a procedure, but rather techniques or exercises. Its important to emphasize that NLP is an educational tool, not limited as a form of therapy. 

+ What about enhancing creativity? 
Byreceiving a NLP session, the degree of creative output that you have in your daily life will be greatly improved. Once new behavioural strategies are created, you will understand how NLP can be used as a creative tool and applied to any scenario in which you deem suitable. 

The basic NLP Presuppositions are: 
The NLP Presuppositions are the basic assumptions of the technology that have not yet proven to be false.  

What are the roots of NLP? 
Dr Richard Bandler created NLP with John Grinder (linguistics), and Richard has a versatile psychology and psychoanalysis background as well as a Mathematics. NLP applied what was learned from various earlier works and developed models that are the foundation of NLP. 

Who is Kei?
Kei has been deepening her study about peoples mind and behaviour over 20 years with psychology, stress management, NLP, coaching, anatomy and physiology, bodywork, self development and hypno to deal with various clientsissues. Shecompleted thepsychology study in the Graduate Diploma course from the university in London in 2010, and licensed as a hypno therapist as well, but came to realize psychology study is not enough to transform peoples minds and lives. Then she started studying NLP from 2010, and officially trained with Dr Richard Bandler, the co-founder of NLP and became a Licensed Master NLP Practitioner.
