NLP enables individuals uncover how and why they act in a certain way, and helps work out a mode for changing the patterns of behaviour which no longer serve a useful purpose in their lives. NLP gained its understandings from behavioural and Gestalt psychology, family therapy, hypnotherapy, linguistics, information theory and anthropology, amongst many other disciplines. However, it was modelled on the work of Virginia Satir, a renowned family therapist and Milton Erickson, a renowned psychiatrist and hypnotherapist.

NLP enables individuals discover how and why one acts in certain ways, and works out a mode for changing the patterns of behaviour which no longer serve a useful purpose. NLP is useful in self-development because it places human beings in control of their lives rather than at its mercy. However, it must be noted that NLP is not a panacea.
