Online NLP Diploma and Practitioner Training - Transform Your Life in 20 Weeks

  • Barão de São Miguel, Portugal
  • Ongoing

Event Highlights

  • "NLP is in nature a fascinating subject and whilst I had covered some elements whilst training in clinical hypnotherapy, I was keen to know the approach in more detail. Little did I know when signing up for this course, that as a result, I would not only enhance my professional life , but would also gain so much insight on a personal level.
  • Natural communicators, Jan and Keziah deliver the course material with great skill. The sessions are carefully constructed to expand and build on the knowledge gained each week. When called for, further explanations are diligently supplied.
  • I cannot recommend this course highly enough - the sessions are stimulating, informative and great fun!" - 2020 course graduate


The Diploma has 10x 2-hr weekly sessions
The Practitioner certification has 10x 2-hr weekly sessions

You will also have some homework assignments to complete between classes, often in applying what we have learnt to your daily life.

Assessment on the Practitioner certification is made by ongoing evaluation of your (self) application, and a short presentation at the end of the course.

About This Event

This 20 week online course is designed to give delegates a solid foundation in NLP, with the ethos of principled self-application as well as NLP as an approach to use with other people. In our experience this matches the values of both personal and professional development, resulting in quick changes which impact performance, and slower-burning changes which influence progression.

We believe that personalised attention is important, which is why we've designed our small group Practitioner by online mentoring. You'll be part of a group of maximum six participants, and encouraged to apply your learning in a way that makes sense for you, be that in your professional or personal life (spoiler: most people end up using it in both!)

Your time commitment is 2 hours a week face to face, with up to another hour a week in homework. Often this is applied practice so that you can start to use your NLP immediately in your day to day interactions and with yourself.

Assessment is made by a presentation at the end of the course, in which you'll demonstrate what you've learned and how you are using it.
