Our preferred definition of NLP is that it is “the study of the structure of subjective experience”, i.e. it is the study of how we each create and construct our experience of the world. Core to the development of NLP and its application is modelling – modelling how somebody does what he/she does.
Our NLP Programmes are modular to allow for practice, reflection and integration of learning. We find this deepens the understanding and capability of the people on the courses such that they start to integrate the skills and attitudes in a way that moves beyond techniques. Our ‘Full’ Practitioner programme is 15 days consisting of five 3-day modules.. Our Masters is 18 days and Trainer Training 17 days.
We recognise this is a big commitment of time and we believe it is worth it. Our past participants also tell us that it is worth it….. for the lifelong learning and changes they make and for the level of NLP skills they develop. Our NLP programmes are substantive, thorough and rigorous. We limit numbers to create a small group environment with all the advantages that brings, including focused coaching support from the trainers. We are committed to your learning and development journey.
At Master Practitioner there is no standard curriculum. Our Masters focuses on what we call 3D NLP, authenticity and identity, and developing your skills of modelling (which is at the heart of NLP mastery and application).
All our NLP programmes are recognised by ANLP. We fully adhere to their Codes of Practice and Ethics.
There are many flavours of NLP training on the market. Some Practitioner and Master Certification Practitioner programmes are just 7 days long and a few are even shorter. We do not subscribe to such programmes for professional training. We believe that time to practice and explore the techniques of NLP is not only desirable but essential, especially for those who intend to use these tools with others. There are no shortcuts to mastering these approaches and getting the learning “into the muscle”. We know from research into learning and the brain that to embody learning and take it congruently into behaviour takes practice and repetition. Until it is embodied it only remains information, is usually forgotten and is certainly rarely available to call upon for practical and impactful action.
