What Will You Learn?

Would you like to change your mind? Not on a decision you’ve made, per se, but in the way you think - your mindset. Learning and applying the skills and techniques of NLP can help you to change your outlook on life through the use of words, retrain the way you perceive things, and set up guideposts to a more successful, purposeful future. One that you direct and control. The NLP Practitioner Course provides the knowledge you need to gain control over your mind and your life.

The NLP Practitioner Course begins by guiding you through the mind. You’ll consider your current beliefs, subconscious drives, how your thought patterns and habits are formed, how short-term and long-term memory works, and how habits are formed. You’ll identify how your thinking may be flawed and how to get unstuck, familiarise yourself with NLP assumptions and internal representations - what they are and why they’re relevant - and learn about Identifying Schemas and Cognitive Distortions and how they may apply to us.

The hold that negative self-talk can have over the mind will become apparent during the introductory modules. We look at the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to reframe negative conditioning, the similarities and differences between CBT and NLP, cognitive restructuring and the idea of automatic negative thoughts, and the theory behind Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.

You’ll learn about the three primary representational systems in NLP - visual, auditory and kinaesthetic (the VAK model) - how these affect our choices and how to work with them, along with how to use the screen of the mind technique to visualise a new life.

We’ll look into filters and perceptions and how these work to remove, distort and generalise the information we absorb - focussing on NLP Meta Programs - and gain an understanding of the Logical Levels Pyramid, Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, and how to use chunking as a tool.

You’ll rewrite your past and envision your future with NLP timelines. Through the NLP Practitioner Course, you’ll work with timelines, understand perceptual positions and goal setting, be aware of how to set SMART goals, and be able to change your personal history with timelines.

Rapport is the quality of harmony, mutual acceptance and recognition - you’ll explore the importance of building rapport, the four stages of a counselling relationship, and empathetic listening and questioning techniques. We also look at how to use stories as a therapeutic tool, the concept of creating metaphors, Gestalt Therapy, and the 12 States of Attention.

Behavioural modelling involves literally modelling someone’s behaviour. Studying the NLP Practitioner Course, you’ll gain an understanding of how to model successful people, learn how to move from dream to realisation, and become familiar with modelling techniques for weight loss, personal success, better health, etc.

NLP Anchors are stimuli that call forth states of mind as well as thoughts and emotions. You’ll learn how to install and use these through a 5-step process and how to use post-hypnotic suggestions.

Behaviours are at the root of everything we do. You’ll learn how to use the New Behaviour Generator to develop a new mindset. You’ll become familiar with using the Circle of Excellence as a tool for accelerating personal and professional growth and the Fast Phobia Cure and Parts therapy for internal conflict.  You’ll also learn the primary motivation behind patterns of behaviour and how to overcome procrastination.
