NLP has been established for over forty years, since ‘The Structure of Magic – Volume 1’ by the co-creators of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, was first published in 1975. Since then many people have developed their own interpretations and versions of NLP, however, the international Society of NLP™, which was founded by Bandler and Grinder as the first-ever NLP organization, is the only association that still follows the original model of ‘pure’ or ‘classic code’ NLP as developed by Bandler and Grinder. The Licensing Agreement and Certification for anyone who completes a Society of NLP™ accredited training, delivered by an approved and Licensed Society of NLP Trainer, is personally signed not only by the Trainer but also signed and sealed with a Unique Reference Number (URN) by Dr Richard Bandler and the President of the Society, John La Valle. Only certification bearing this seal and URN is genuinely a Society of NLP™ (SNLP) approved and recognized programme following Dr Richard Bandler’s approved curriculum.

For many years, the only programmes in NLP leading to certification and accreditation by the SNLP (other than short courses run by Dr Richard Bandler in person), have been the Licensed NLP Practitioner and Licensed Master Practitioner courses. In recent times there has been a huge growth in the Coaching profession, with Coaches offering their services for Business, Executive and Leadership Coaching in the Corporate sector, Life Coaching, Career and Education Coaching, Sports and Performance Coaching, and the demand for Licensed Coach programmes. In response to popular demand, Dr Bandler has now approved a number of SNLP Licensed Trainers to deliver SNLP accredited Coaching programmes. Previously, the SNLP only offered Certification in Business Coaching and Sports Coaching but now Dr Bandler has appointed Alessio Roberti, the distinguished SNLP International Director of Business Coaching,  to develop a programme for SNLP Licensed Trainers to be certified to deliver the first SNLP accredited Licensed Coach courses, preparing participants to conduct Coaching in any field that they wish.

Now a very small number of of SNLP Licensed Trainers internationally, including Dr Leila and Phil Edwards of Transformations Institute, have been Licensed to deliver the new SNLP Licensed Coach programme.

The new programme comprises the following elements with two new Coaching modules as well as the SNLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner course. If you don’t wish to become a Licensed Coach, you can take the NLP courses without the Coaching Modules. If you have obtained both your NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner certification from a Licensed SNLP Trainer, then once you have gained experience and become skilled in NLP, then you are eligible to apply for training as an SNLP Licensed Trainer.



Parts One & Two: Feb 27th - 29th & March 5th - 7th Thurs 6.00 pm - 9.00 pm & Sat 9.00 am - 9.00 pm (certification from the Society of NLP founded by Dr Richard Bandler) from 9.00 am - 5.00 pm - Abu Dhabi

NB: The NLP Practitioner course can be taken before or after the first Coaching Foundations Module. 



    Dates & Venue to be announced (Certification issued by the International Society of NLP founded by Dr Richard Bandler) from 9.00 am - 6.00 pm - Abu Dhabi

    The NLP Master Practitioner course can be taken before or after the Coaching Foundations Module. It is essential for those who wish to take the final Coaching Practice Module to become a Licensed Coach to have already completed the NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and the Coaching Foundations Modules.



    29th Nov - 2nd Dec (Fri - Mon)  (Certification from the International Society of NLP, founded by Dr Richard Bandler, upon completion of the NLP Coaching Course) from 9.00 am - 6.00 pm - Abu Dhabi

    This 4-day intensive course provides an introduction to the Coaching process and the most successful models of Coaching since Tim Gallwey’s ground-breaking ‘Inner Game’ series of books was launched in the 1970s and subsequently developed by Sir John Whitmore into his highly influential ‘G.R.O.W.’ model. We also include: Patrick Lencioni’s work with coaching teams; elements of the Co-active Coaching; the ‘Wheel of Life’; 360⁰ feedback; the Coaching Contract; etc. The course will provide a theoretical framework for the process but the focus will be very much on applied skills and how to introduce Coaching into a variety of different contexts: Business & Organisational Coaching; Executive & Leadership Coaching; Life, Personal & Relationship Coaching; Academic, Educational & Career Coaching; Health, Lifestyle and Well-Being Coaching; etc. Participants will be provided with follow-up references and resources, which will required by those who wish to prepare for the next level to become fully Licensed Coaches.

    This course is open to all those who are interested in becoming Coaches and there is no requirement to have trained in NLP in order to register, although some prior knowledge of NLP will be useful. Those who wish to become fully accredited Coaches will need to take both the NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner courses in order to qualify for the final Coaching Practice course in March. 



    Individual Assessment Appointments (certification issued by the Society of NLP founded by Dr Richard Bandler) - Abu Dhabi

    This intensive course revises and reinforces the key NLP concepts and techniques, in the context of applying these as a Licensed Coach. Participants will attend the first two days and then on one of the last two days will attend to conduct an observed ‘live’ Coaching session with a practice Coachee client, followed by feedback and a viva assessment by the Course Leader.

    A substantial element of the course will be practicing and demonstrating applied skills in the Coaching session with ‘real life’ Coachees from relevant sectors (reflecting the Coach’s preferred field of practice).

    Coaches in training will receive ongoing feedback from fellow participants, Coachees and Observers, including the Course Leader.

    Eligibility for this course requires that participants have:

    Completed the Level 1 Coaching Foundations course with a Society of NLP Licensed Trainer

    Obtained their Society of NLP Licensed Practitioner certification, OR

    have successfully completed an NLP Licensed Practitioner programme with another NLP training organization, subject to being assessed as having an adequate level of knowledge and skill in the SNLP Licensed Practitioner core skills and competences to meet the requirements for entry to the SNLP Licensed Master Practitioner training (there may be a charge for this assessment).

    Obtained their Society of NLP Licensed Master Practitioner certification, regardless of which SNLP Licensed Trainer they trained with.

    There are written and practical assessments for this course, including a post-course written examination. On successful completion of all elements, participants will be awarded the SNLP Licensed Coach Certificate with a stamp and URN, issued by the SNLP and personally signed by Dr Richard Bandler.
