The NLP Practitioner course can be taken independently of the coaching programme and can also be taken as a part of the programme either before or after the first Coaching Foundations Module.

NLP skills enable you to accelerate achievement and success, using powerful techniques involving psychology and physiology. You’ll learn how to apply tools such as ‘Time-lining’ and ‘Strategy Detection’ as technologies for influencing others, communicating more effectively and enabling positive personal and professional change.

NLP shows you how to change your own ‘programming’ for the better by creating positive and improved responses. NLP enables you to break old patterns of negative conditioning and access creative internal resources using posture and body language, breathing patterns, communication skills and many other dynamic exercises. Its applications range from education, accelerated learning and creative processes, to enhancing health and well-being. 

NLP is also used widely in business development and in the corporate environment to improve productivity and performance. Many of the world’s most successful and forward-thinking organisations use NLP to gain competitive advantage in sales and marketing, public relations, recruitment and HR, customer service, team-building, change management, creative problem-solving, presentation and negotiation skills, executive coaching, and leadership programmes.

NLP courses use an accelerated learning format that enables participants to complete the course with practical skills to apply immediately, and by continued application, to assimilate and develop their learning for an ongoing return on investment. 

The NLP Practitioner Certification course is led by two distinguished international NLP Master Practitioners, Coaches and Trainers, Dr Leila and Phil Edwards. Both are personally trained and endorsed by the creator of NLP, Dr Richard Bandler, who personally signs the Certificates.


The NLP Practitioner Curriculum is the specific knowledge, skills, and techniques that you will learn how to use on the course.

The Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™ Practitioner Level Certification Skills Requirements 

A minimum ability to utilize the basic skills, techniques, patterns and concepts of NLP™: 

1. Behavioral integration of the eight basic presuppositions of NLP™:


The ability to change the process by which we experience reality is more often valuable than changing the content of our experience of reality.

The meaning of your communication is the response you get.

All distinctions human beings are able to make concerning our environment and our behavior can be usefully represented through the visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, and gustatory senses.

The resources an individual needs to effect a change are already within them.

The map is not the territory.

The positive worth of the individual is held constant, while the value and appropriateness of the internal and/or external behavior is questioned.

There is a positive intention motivating every behavior; and a context in which every behavior has value.

Feedback vs. Failure - All results and behaviors are achievements, whether they are desired results for a given task/context or not.
