Clinical Diploma in NLP, Coaching & Hypnotherapy – Distance Learning Option

Starting September 2024

In a recent survey, 100% of students said they would recommend this course to others.

“Doing this course has, quite simply, been a life-changing experience for me.”

“Life changing – personally and for others.”

“Really good.  Much more fun than I expected.”

“I could not recommend it more highly!”

“One of the best decisions I’ve made”

“I would recommend the distance learning option without reservation.”

“Highly recommended.”

“A superb training from which I learnt so much”

“I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering it, you will not be disappointed.”

“The information in the course is fascinating and life changing.”

“I met some incredible people online and had a wonderful tutor guiding me through.”

“I found Phil to be an excellent teacher. He uses plenty of stories, visuals, practical work and explains the content so clearly and thoroughly.”

This is the ultimate training for people who are really serious about becoming great practitioners and leaders in this field. It trains you in all the skills you will need to begin effectively working with clients with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy, and supports you in gaining the confidence and experience to work effectively with a wide range of clients.

This distance learning model of the Diploma course has been developed for students who are based outside of Europe where it is not possible to take the course because of travel or timezones.  Students from across the world have taken this course, including Australia, Caymen Islands, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore and USA.

It involves a huge commitment from the individual as they will have to ensure they keep up with the taught material and be able to demonstrate their understanding and development during regular updates with a tutor, however, students who take this course graduate with a high level of skill and expertise to enable them to work with a wide range of clients and issues.

Course Structure

The first module, the NLP Life Skills, can be started 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 to complete by September 2024.

The remainder of the lecture modules are learnt through watching the module videos and reading the course notes followed by regular Zoom calls with another distance learning student and a tutor who will assess your progression, ensure you are on track, and answer any questions you may have.

To deepen your knowledge, your training is completed with a supervised clinical module, which you are required to join live.  This 4 day module is run in small groups, live online over Zoom.  There are different dates available throughout February 2025.

Ahead of graduating you will need to complete written and practical exams.  The written exams, two case studies and a book/film review, can be done in your own time and submitted to be marked by an examiner.  For the practical exam, an examiner will observe you undertaking a complete client session and demonstrating your clinical competence – this can be arranged directly with your examiner at a time to suit you.

The Diploma course, whether you take it distance learning or live online, is run over the same timescales, September 2024-February 2025, to enable both sets of students to work closely together and arrange practice and discussion sessions.  If you are able to participate in any of the lecture modules this is highly encouraged (you can find the dates for these here).
