Certified NLP Practitioner & Life Coach Course

Starting September 2020

If you are interested in exploring the exciting worlds of NLP and coaching for your own personal development then this is the course for you.  The tools you will learn can be used to achieve success in so many areas: to enhance relationships, productivity, confidence and motivation; to change habits and to increase your ability to communicate even more effectively with others and to transform your personal and professional life.

It’s a chance to train personally with Phil Parker – one of the world’s few Certified Master Trainers in NLP and designer of the Lightning Process.  At the end of this 15 day course you will be assessed for a Certified NLP Practitioner & Life Coach qualification.

If your intention is to use these skills with clients, or your ultimate goal is to take the Lightning Process Practitioner Training you will need to take the more advanced version of this course, the Clinical Diploma in NLP, Coaching & Hypnotherapy, which includes an additional 4 day clinical module.  Subject to availability, there is the option to transfer to the Diploma course part way through the Certified course as the lecture content is the same – we find this is very common for people who start off on this course as once they start their training with us they just want to do more!

Course Dates and Times:

For the safety of our trainers and students, this year the course will be taught live online, rather than in person.

The first module, the NLP Life Skills, is available to take at any time.  The course is taught through 10 videos (approximately 1 hour each) and comprehensive course notes which you can work through in your own time followed by a 2 hour interactive session with Phil online over zoom.  There will be two opportunities to take the interactive session with Phil – one at the start of September and one at the end of September, you can book onto your preferred option when you enrol on the course.

The remainder of the interactive lecture modules will be taught live by Phil on the following dates – there will be plenty of break during the sessions and it will be a mix of teaching from Phil and practice.
