Master practitioners of NLP learn several additional skills including belief change, Identity change, Meta-programs, timelines, and advanced language and interventions. A Master Practitioner training is where the real spirit of NLP comes alive.


Why Become an NLP Practitioner?

NLP PractitionerThe real goal of NLP training is to learn how to ‘Generate NLP’

Once a person learns to use the 12 skills of NLP in confluence, they become extraordinarily resourceful in any situation. There is something magical that happens when these particular 12 skills are utilized together in combination.  After training many people in NLP, I came to call this ability “Generating NLP”.

The ultimate reason for becoming a Practitioner of NLP is to learn how to Generate NLP. Once you can do that, you are never really the same again. You turn problems into resources automatically, you bounce back into resourceful emotions more easily and you help others change in positive and generative ways simply by how you communicate.

NLP Practitioners don’t move through the world like ordinary people. They are much more resourceful and capable of achieving their goals than most people.

In addition, NLP Practitioners learn a highly effective coaching model complete with numerous therapeutic interventions. So they are extraordinary resources and coaches to others.  To be adept at NLP is to be able to change the internal representations any person has that cause them to experience the world the way they do. In short, NLP is the ability to adjust the internal building blocks that result in patterns, habits, results, identity, and behaviors.

NLP Certification Trainings

NLP PractitionerYou can learn NLP skills online, over the phone and in person.

The place to become a Certified Practitioner of NLP is at a practitioner training.  To become adept at the 12 skills requires a minimum of 6 months of training.

But be careful. Unfortunately, there are many companies that have come on the scene who have dumbed down the imparting of these unique skills. Some do ‘light’ versions and others simply cram them into a week-long intensive. Neither truly impart the ability to Generate NLP.  People who attend that type of training, get ‘certificates’ but really only have an intellectual understanding of Neuro-linguistic Programming.

Genuine NLP Practitioner skills can be acquired in person, over the phone and online.

We teach the classic NLP skills in a 6-month long curriculum. Learn about our NLP Practitioner CertificationTrainings and our Online & Over The Phone NLP training and coaching programs.
