Master Practitioner Certificate in NLP, Coaching & Clinical Hypnotherapy – Distance Learning Option

Starting March 2024

Our Master Practitioner in NLP training course builds on the incredible skill and knowledge you have developed during the Diploma course.  It covers more advanced techniques to change issues around beliefs, and gain a deeper understanding of an Ericksonian approach to change and hypnotherapy.

Is this course for you?

This course is for students who have already taken our Clinical Diploma in NLP, Coaching and Hypnotherapy.

If you wish to become a Lightning Process Practitioner you will need to have taken Module 1 and 2 of this course before taking the LP Practitioner Training (in addition to other criteria).

The distance learning model of this course, like the Diploma course before, requires the individual to ensure they keep up with the taught modules and are able to demonstrate their understanding and development during regular updates with a tutor.

As our distance learning option is primarily designed for students who are based outside Europe if this is not you then we would highly recommend our attendance/live online course instead – you can find full information about this here…

Course Structure

The course involves two lecture modules followed by the opportunity to revisit the material you learnt on the practitioner level course to gain a deeper understanding and utilise your skills even more.  The lecture modules are learnt through watching the module videos and reading the course notes followed by fortnightly 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.  You will revisit two modules of your choice from the Diploma by watching the course videos, whilst supporting a first year student will develop your coaching skills.

The course, whether you take it distance learning or attendance, is run over the same timescales to enable both sets of students to work closely together and arrange practice and discussion sessions.  Distance learning students are not required to attend any modules in person for this course, however, if you are able to participate in any of the lecture modules this is highly encouraged (you can find the dates for these here).

The course is completed by submitting a written modelling project – this will demonstrate your ability to identify how a peak performer becomes successful at a particular skill and how to effectively break it down so that you can teach anyone how to do the same.

A big part of the Masters course is developing your skills even further and as a part of this students receive two module videos of their choice from the 2023/24 Diploma course to revisit – this gives you an opportunity to review the content again at deeper level with the learning you already have and see new demonstrations.

Masters students are also paired with first year Diploma students on the distance learning option so that you can support them through the course, and further develop your own coaching skills.

Course Fees

The cost of this course is £2040 (£1700 +VAT).


On completing the course and passing your exams you will be awarded your Master Practitioner Certificate in NLP, Coaching & Hypnotherapy.
