Is this course for you?

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.

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 Structure

This 15 day course is split into 5 modules.

The first, the NLP Life Skills module, is taught in two ways – you can pick what suits you best.  Option 1 is two days live online with Phil.  Option 2 is through 10 videos (approximately 1 hour each) and a comprehensive set of course notes which you can work through in your own time, followed by a 2 hour interactive session with Phil online over zoom.

This is followed by 4 live online modules personally taught by Phil.   These are taught through a mix of interactive lectures, demonstrations and practice in small groups/pairs.

There will be skills assessments at various points during the course to ensure that you are on track to gain your certificate at the end of the course.
