Coaching Courses

At CNELM we have combined nutritional therapy clinical training with life coaching models enabling practitioners to draw on a range of skills to help facilitate positive change in themselves and others.

The following standalone Coaching Courses are available at CNELM:

Foundation and Advanced Coaching modules are included in the CNELM Nutritional Therapy Practice Diploma (NTPD) as well as two additional days at the end of Advanced Coaching to demonstrate meeting verification requirements for an NLP Practitioner Certificate.

The NLP Practitioner course is open to all health professionals who wish to add life coaching skills to their remit.

The Why Weight Practitioner course is included within the Nutrition Coach Diploma only. It is also open to existing NLP Practitioners who wish to focus on coaching for weight management.

The Why Weight Practitioner course is included within the Nutrition Coach Diploma only. It is also open to existing NLP Practitioners who wish to focus on coaching for weight management.

An NLP Practitioner Certificate (Neurolinguistic Programming) is an internationally recognised qualification. On successful completion of the course you will receive an NLP Practitioner certificate from the  ANLP  professional body and entitles you to apply to them for membership.

Please click on the individual course links above for further details on course content, entry requirements and fees.

BSc and MSc/PG Dip students taking the NTPD that live overseas or at some distance from the Centre can take an NLP course closer to home. In this instance the Module Leader for Advanced Coaching confirms whether the course you have identified is likely to meet the needs of the NTPD, most do. BSc/NTPD, MSc/PG Dip/NTPD and NCD students taking an NLP Practitioner course elsewhere are charged half the normal fee to cover support, marking and assessment of coaching assignments that must still be completed as part of the NTPD.
