NLP practitioner programme

Run by trainer, Viv Buckland, our NLP training programme has a strong ethical basis and a focus on ensuring you are completely confident in your new skills.  Many people go on to use these skills in therapy and coaching, and what makes our course stand out from many others is that we include options about how you go on to apply these skills in your work.  So we offer applied NLP skills on each course, so that you leave with a sound understanding of some relevant practical applications.  The options we currently offer include coaching, leadership and management, and school based NLP.  You simply choose to join the most relevant course for you.

How is this NLP training conducted?

There is 120 hours of guided learning to become a Certified NLP Practitioner with the American Board of NLP.  This could be the equivalent of 20 days of training.  Most people we have worked with would prefer to take less time away from their families, work or business and so we offer a combined distance learning and 7 day classroom based programme. This is a very interactive programme using the accelerated learning techniques.

The distance learning component is made up of two elements:

  • Listening to a comprehensive set of audio material alongside the course manual

The audio material provides you with all the knowledge you need to become a Certified NLP Practitioner.  We recommend that you allow at least a month to work through this. We can then use the 7 days of live training to focus on skills and behaviour change. Students who follow the instructions and complete this distance learning before attending the live training go on to be very successful.

  • Preparing an open book test to embed your knowledge gained from the audio and manual

You do the exercise in your own time and you can use all the reference material you need to ensure that you are completely successful.  You will receive feedback on any areas that you have not yet fully understood enabling you to  receive a 100% success rate on all questions.

Who is likely to benefit from this programme?

  • Business people who want to learn the most advanced tools for creating relationships, effective communication and ethical use of language to influence and motivate.

  • Therapists, counsellors, coaches, consultants who want to add an impactful set of tools to their 'toolbox'.

  • Individuals who want to achieve more of what they want out of life.
