NLP Life Skills Student

“Phil Parker is probably one of the best trainers I have encountered.  His easy, relaxed manner of interaction really makes his course really enjoyable and increases your chances of real success in the fascinating arena.”

Andrew, Practitioner Training

“The Clinical NLP Practitioner and Life Coaching Diploma is a superb training from which I learnt so much about people and very quick ways to improve life and add more choice and richness to my experience and that of others.

This is a thorough training and the practical clinical assessments at the end of this course are absolutely worth while for anyone serious about practicing in this area, my experience of this course is that it is thorough and keeps you on your toes with learning. The tutors are wonderful and offer their experience and insight on each Skype call as well as offering a safe space to practice and learn practical elements of this course.

Highly recommended.”

Judy, NLP Life Skills

“I began the course for personal development, after using the LP to recover from ME. The course has far exceeded my expectations, both personally and professionally, and I have made changes I never thought possible. As a result of the high standard of teaching and the focus on clinical practice, I now plan to carry on working with clients and have a multitude of skills to apply in all areas of my life. The course has been completely transformational for me and I would recommend it to anyone interested in changing any aspect of their life.”

Victoria, Diploma Course

“It was fantastic to see the master of LP at work and to feel some of the power of his ability to create immediate change. Phil is very inspiring and I would love to work with him again.”

NLP Life Skills Student

Stephanie, NLP Life Skills

“Very well run and high professional standards. The theory is delivered with panache and each module builds on the last with well though through progression. Modules are tested in small groups with real clients under expert tutorage. Demanding and rewarding.”

Eamonn, Diploma Course

“It was a fantastic two days. Thanks!!”

Jane, NLP Life Skills

“Have no doubt that you will personally gain from attending this course no matter who you are or what you are searching for.”

Nikki, NLP Life Skills

“Excellent! Just being on the course was a great, life changing experience in itself!  Phil delivers excellent training – really well explained, brilliantly demonstrated and then loads of practice time for the students. And what a great bunch of students! It was a pleasure being with them.”

Alan, Diploma Course

“If you’ve done the Lightning Process, then this takes it one step further. I feel rebooted, re-energised and have my mojo back!”

NLP Life Skills Student
“When I signed up for Phil Parker’s Diploma course I was expecting a great deal. I hoped to gather what I knew would be amazing tools to help others and, given that I live on the west coast of the U.S., I was immensely relieved to learn that there was a distance learning option that would allow me to acquire these skills without spending days of my life (and a large chunk of the family bank account) on traveling to and fro. The results, though, have completely exceeded my expectations.

Doing this course has, quite simply, been a life-changing experience for me. I am consistently amazed at both the positive changes I see in myself and the extraordinary potential of the skills we are learning to transform the lives of other people. Phil is a phenomenally gifted teacher; I have the benefit of a remarkable tutor who guides and teaches via Skype with great skill and commitment; my fellow students are all teachers as well as learners; and the structure of the course is so well thought through that learning seems both easy and fun.

In fact, the course is so much fun that I have voluntarily traveled to London several more times than required for the distance learning option, happily stretching the family bank account and subjecting myself to hours on an airplane, because — even though I have wonderful distance learning tools — it is just so exhilarating to experience this course first hand. I could not recommend it more highly!”

Amanda from the USA, Diploma Course - Distance Learning

“Having just completed the Phil Parker NLP Life Skills and coaching course I would highly recommend it whether you have never done anything like it before and would like to find out more, have already some knowledge or are a Lightning Process graduate who just wants to brush up on their skills and add a little more. This was a packed two days, informative and intersting from begining to end. I feel sure we all left with new strategies we could all put into practice straight away to help us move forward in a more positive with our lives or help others do the same. There was a wonderful lifting of energy as the course progressed. Many thanks to Phil Parker for all his hard work ensuring we all got the best from the course.”

Marion, NLP Life Skills

“The Masters Course takes you to the next level, learning and using processes that elevate your skills above the rest of the pack. Again Phils personal tuition in a relatively small class size compared to some other courses is priceless and fuels your thirst for knowledge and improvement in this intriguing, challanging and hugely rewarding field of work.  Highly Recommended.”

David, Masters Course

“Great 2 days. Phil’s style of presentation is energetic relaxed and full of humour. He has a great depth of knowledge and was skilled in meeting the needs of a broad range of attendees, ranging from those wishing for purely personal development, to those at practitioner level wanting to develop professional skills. I found the course interesting, well paced, and met some lovely people. Its left me seriously considering doing the practitioner training with Phil, – something I wouldn’t have considered before.”

Belinda, NLP Life Skills

“I joined the Diploma course in 2016 after ‘thinking about it’ for three years…and I’m so glad I did it! This course has challenged me, nurtured me, inspired me, shifted the way I think and feel about myself (for the better!) and given me the tools, skills and knowledge I was seeking to start my own practice helping people to see their world differently and move forward with confidence.

It’s an absolute pleasure to study with Phil; the quality of the content, training and supervision is truly world-class. I would highly recommend the Diploma journey to anyone who is thinking about a powerfully transformative experience.”

Lucy, Diploma Course

“I found the seminar a really good follow up to doing the Lightning Process as although I was familiar with many of the subjects covered through the practical side of the LP, it was interesting to learn about some of the elements of the LP in more depth.  I particularly benefited from the goal setting part: having set many goals for clients and for myself in the past, it was interesting to move away from being problem-focused to solution-focused, and I found the step-by-step approach simple but amazingly effective at revealing some hidden sabotage behaviour I have had in the past about a health issue. This then became the catalyst for starting to address a long term relationship issue I have had, and the benefits in my ability to communicate about it are already being felt.”

Louise, NLP Life Skills

“Excellent introduction to NLP. Deepened knowledge relating to the Lightning Process and learnt new skills. Amazing to be amongst so many positive people. Phil has a fantastic way of explaining everything so it makes sense.”

NLP Life Skills Student

“The Diploma course teachings offer an amazing insight into how we humans operate and the techniques I have learned from this course has already changed my perspective on life and how I manage myself, for the better. I have also had the privilege of helping others to likewise, to make important positive life change with the skills that I have developed from my participation on the course. The delivery of the course is fun and engaging and the lecturers, coaches and the Phil Parker team all offer great support to students in completing their study. I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering it”

Niamh, Diploma Course

“The course is great. I came away inspired to learn more about NLP. I found the session really engaging and particularly enjoyed getting the opportunity to practice the techniques we had been taught with the other attendees as this is a great way to learn.”

Catherine, NLP Life Skills

“Great opportunity to understand and learn of the potential of NLP, hypnotherapy, Lightning Process and much more, as well as meet some really interesting people!”

Clare, NLP Life Skills

“This course was interesting, engaging and exciting, I thoroughly recommend it. Phil expertly guided us through a fascinating NLP journey of how the mind works and just how much influence we have to achieve the life we love. I am excited to learn more and look forward to participating in the practitioners’ course.”

Bernadine, NLP Life Skills

“It was a real pleasure to be taught by Phil, who is not only a master of the techniques he teaches, but always makes learning challenging as well as fun.  I loved Phil’s presentation style – balancing the challenge of learning the material with humour and fun.  The Diploma taught me so much more than I’d realised possible. It was a great introduction to the material and really well-taught.  I really enjoyed the fact that students from previous years as well as senior level tutors were on hand to offer help and advice through the Diploma.  Thanks Phil for an amazing introduction to NLP, Hypnotherapy and Coaching. Even if I never practice as a Therapist (which I probably will), I know I will always use the tools – especially in Coaching myself – for the rest of my life.”

Rosie, Diploma Course

“It was very interesting. I had read quite a lot about these subjects before I joined the course, however having the opportunity to work with others and practice and witness certain aspects of the learning was a key element for me. Motivating and inspiring. I learned a lot, met some lovely people and I am now hungry to learn more on the subjects of NLP and am now considering taking my learning further.”

NLP Life Skills Student
“Deciding to do the Clinical NLP Practitioner and Life Coach Diploma via distance learning was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

The course content was really thought provoking and I found myself eagerly looking forward to the next module! Phil is an excellent teacher and even though I wasn’t in the actual classroom with my classmates, and my learning was ‘virtual’ it was easy to engage and become part of what I was learning. I actually felt like I knew the other students because I got to see them every month on the videos! What I have learnt has been life changing and has enhanced my understanding of how people do what they do, and how change happens. My new learnings have become a part of all that I do now, and I am very glad that I’ve done the training.

It was incredibly helpful to have a skype tutor too. My tutor was like a life line! She gave me such valuable insights and helped me to practice the things I was learning.

The trips I made to the UK were absolute highlights. I was incredibly challenged and given great opportunities to grow and develop. And it was really fun to meet my classmates “in the flesh”! I would recommend the distance learning option without reservation.”

Sarah from New Zealand, Diploma Course - Distance Learning

“A very powerful experience which was highly practical. We got down to trying out techniques straight away. There is so much in these two days I know I will be reflecting on this for many weeks to come.”

Jenny, NLP Life Skills

“If you spoke to me in person about this course you would see my eyes light up and hear the excitement in my voice – it is that good.  Phil delivers it in such an entertaining and interesting way which keeps you focused and makes it easy to learn.  I would certainly recommend it!”

Paula, Diploma Course

“It was great to meet Phil in person. It was a great add-on to the LP I did before. Fun. Great balance between theory and practice, inspiring, empowering.”

Kathrin, NLP Life Skills

“I attended the course with an open mind, the two day course content was informative, provided practical skills and theory and practice integrated with a flow. Well delivered course in an atmosphere that was conducive to learning. This course opens up a world of possibility that enlightens, motivates, and energises a fresh approach to living.”

Rita, NLP Life Skills

“The study at the Phil Parker Trainer Institute has been like a journey in a treasurebox. Each module has been really interesting and valuable. I think the combination of the NLP, Life-coaching and Hypnotherapy makes this work strong and flexible. The Lightning Process study on top of this, makes it even more important and life-enhancing. The way Phil has been a teacher makes everything easy and funny, but at the same time serious. This has been really good to me and I am looking forward to work in this field and have got a lot of new friends and colleagues.”

Ingvild from Norway, Practitioner Training

“Enjoyed basking in Phil’s humour and energy, and his timing in delivering the knowledge and tools.”

NLP Life Skills Student

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course; it was perfectly pitched & great reinforcement of the magic of LP. Phil was an inspirational & energetic speaker with great anecdotes which brought the theoretical aspects effortlessly to life. Highly recommended for anyone!”

Nicola, NLP Life Skills

“When I began the Diploma in September I could not foresee how life changing this course would be. The content and design ensure that not only are you trained in a professional and friendly manner but also in a way that enables students to transform as they progress through the course. In my experience this is without doubt the most amazing course I have ever trained on.”

Damien, Diploma Course

“Thanks. I enjoyed the days and have lots of new and revised tools for my kit.”

Helen, NLP Life Skills

“For me, this was an interesting, inspiring and creative weekend. It helped me to use the Lightning Process for myself more effectively and creatively. I learnt about N.L.P. and coaching in a focussed and practical way.”

Pat Mary, NLP Life Skills

Helen, Diploma Course

“I loved it and came away uplifted”

NLP Life Skills Student

NLP Life Skills Student
“I had always had the goal of becoming a practitioner after attending the Lightning Process® to recover from Fibromyalgia and ME back in 2009. I researched options to take the training and always came back to the course run by Phil, it’s content was far more comprehensive than that of others. I’m so glad I did!

Now as a practitioner, I often meet other ‘Master’ NLP Practitioners and am astounded by how much more I know – even having only just qualified. If you are considering taking the Diploma/Advanced/Masters then I would highly recommend these courses. It has provided me with a solid knowledge base to run my own successful business.

Phil’s ability to connect with a wide range of people allows this to be an all-inclusive course – he has a way of explaining content to ensure full understanding. The course is designed to ensure that all participants pass with a high standard, clinical assessment is included for those who want to take their knowledge further.I learnt so much more than I could ever have imagined.”

Nikki, Practitioner Training

“This is a great introductory course to NLP. It was interesting and fun to attend and even if I don’t do any more future studying of the subject this course has given me many skills that it will bring benefits to my life.”

Claire, NLP Life Skills

“I am happy that I chose to complete this training straight after my Diploma and I would recommend doing this to keep up all of your positive momentum moving forwards and gaining skills that you will use to help people on even deeper levels of mastery, and you will realise where Phil has already been using these skills to help you in your Diploma. Thank you very much Phil, A1!”

Jason, Masters Course

“It was a fantastic experience. Friendly and welcoming, easy to understand. Positive and potentially life changing skills. Amazing what can happen when you let down your boundaries in you and think differently. Thank you!”

Oriana, NLP Life Skills

“This course feels like the beginning of a voyage of discovery. I enjoyed this course, and was energised and inspired. I found a lot to use in my own life, professionally and personally. Although it was fast-paced, there was time to reflect. There was also a lovely atmosphere of compassion – and a good sense of humour, which I appreciated.”

NLP Life Skills Student

“The training I received at the Phil Parker Training Institute was very thorough, the opportunity to practise with real clients with close supervision, was excellent. The time frame was ideal, allowing plenty of time to practise and develop skills. The tutors were very skilled and Phil Parker keeps the training fun. I gained a really good grounding in the skills I needed to work in the field, I can totally recommend the training courses at the PPTI.”

Heather, Diploma Course

“Phil is truly inspirational.”

Richard, NLP Life Skills

“Thank you so much for such an incredible, enlightening experience. What an incredible learning opportunity, extremely professional and formal, I gained so much in practice as well as the theory. This has been probably the best learning I have ever experienced…

I am delighted I chose this course; the rigour of the assessment has been and is exemplary. As an external marker for Winchester University it’s heart-warming to see the standard of assessment is up there with many of the universities.”

Rebecca, Diploma Course

NLP Life Skills Student

I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every single minute of the courses, Phil has an excellent way of teaching and made it both fun and captivating but importantly the content is very comprehensive. The course is all recorded which means you can watch the whole course as many times as you wish.”

Sue, Practitioner Training

Anne, NLP Life Skills

It opens your mind to so many possibilities and you meet the most wonderful like-minded people. I cant wait to learn more!!”

Chenin, NLP Life Skills

“I had a fantastic year’s training at the Phil Parker Training Institute. I learned loads about NLP and Hypnotherapy, and felt that Phil had thought hard about how to present things in a way we could easily grasp, and when we didn’t he tried again! I felt completely engaged the whole time, and although there was plenty of work to do, and it all felt very new at first, I never regretted my decision to do the course.”
