NLP Practitioner Certificate

The NLP Practitioner course taught at CNELM is particularly oriented towards individuals who work with others in a one to one setting. So, for anyone working as: a therapist of any kind, a coach, a sports coach, healthcare professional or manager, then this course aims to provide you with the extra skills and insight that we think will be highly valuable. The course is also highly relevant for individuals looking to develop additional skills, understand and perspectives for self development purposes. 

The course will focus on skills enabling participants to build rapport, manage state, resolve people problems, be more aware of self and others in interesting ways, set goals, gain new perspectives, and will offer a number of change techniques helping people to make useful change in their lives – for example, to manage state, change habits, or change beliefs.

In the words of one health professional that joined the course alongside our students

‘The NLP Practitioner course at CNELM has had a significant impact on my life, both professionally and personally. I wholeheartedly recommend the course. During my 3-year training in Nutritional Therapy, I couldn’t shake the feeling that a piece of the puzzle was missing. On setting up practice, the feeling remained that an important tool was missing from my toolbox. I’m grateful that only months into practice, I found NLP, and that vital piece. You can give a client the best nutrition plan in the world, but if their thinking, feeling and language is out of alignment – obstacles quickly appear. At the very least, NLP teaches you to spot the patterns that, once you are aware, are abundantly obvious right from your initial consultation. I’ve found that NT and NLP in parallel, produces the most impactful and long-lasting results. Not only has NLP hugely informed my practice, it has positively shifted the way I communicate with friends, family and every single person I meet. I think I’ve naturally and instinctively used NLP throughout most of my life, which is likely what drew me to a therapy role in the first place. And yet, the awareness and techniques I learnt from the course have been an absolute game changer. Chris Rasey is a brilliant teacher and takes you through the process of learning with such insight, patience and humour. Be prepared for an intense, profound and exciting journey, from which you will never look back.’
