NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming

Are you a salesperson, manager, team leader, learning and development person, HR specialist, coach, therapist or maybe someone interested in NLP?

Read on… our NLP Practitioner certification course will significantly and positively impact your effectiveness – within your work and private lives!

When we open our minds to new ways of doing things, new ways of interpreting information or events, or both; and even by understanding more about ourselves and others, then new and different things start to occur.  Good communication and being able to connect with self and with others in a more beneficial way.

NLP was developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Grinder majored in linguistics while Bandler has a gestalt therapy background.  Using their knowledge, and weaving in techniques from excellent therapists such as Milton Erikson, Virginia Satir and Fritz Perls, NLP was born.  It isn’t just about therapy, it is about influencing, business, modelling excellence; useful tools to aid in creating the outcomes you want in life.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is described by Bandler in the following six words:

  • Neuro – brain
  • Linguistics – language
  • Programming – behaviour

NLP trains the brain to learn new skills, and change thought patterns and even behaviours.  It aids goal setting, coping with change and overcoming negative emotional patterns.

It offers you a flexible approach to dealing with change which ultimately brings about positive, fast change and empowers you to adapt to an ever-changing world.

I am a certified NLP Trainer and hold NLP Practitioner training annually.

Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner Certification Course

People learn NLP for many different reasons and it is impactful in business life as much as it is in personal life. Throughout the course, we will be including aspects of how it can be implemented into business, including emails and communication that create a response, tips for recruiting the right staff and negotiating skills to name just three. So, whether you are doing this to achieve your true goals in life, to interact better with children, loved ones or people in general; perhaps you coach or want to coach people or whether it is to be a more impactful leader, this course in NLP will certainly have a strong influence.

The NLP Practitioner training level is a combination of principles and practical experience to allow all participants to fully learn and integrate the knowledge. A combination of facilitated learning, as well as self-directed learning in between the two weeks of training, allows you to incorporate NLP into your daily lives and entrain the brain into a new way of being.

As you explore it more and more you will find new ways of thinking, of doing, and even of being if you so choose. I first started exploring NLP around 2009 and I have never looked back.
