NLP Training Courses

I recently completed an NLP course and I am now a registered NLP Master Practitioner. My NLP training course, which was with an NLP training company called People Building, has enabled me to set up and practice confidently as a therapist. More importantly, I have learnt valuable life tools which I use and apply to my own life and which has enabled me to experience a refreshed perspective and more flexible ways of feeling and behaving.

I was so inspired with my NLP course that I went on to train further as a Master practitioner. However, just by completing an NLP practitioner course you will learn many things and have a good grounding in NLP, which will allow you to practice. This article discusses just a few of the techniques you will learn during your NLP training.

For anyone that communicates with anyone else (so that’s everyone!) you will be taught how to communicate more effectively by learning how to have better rapport in order to quickly gain a connection with others. You will learn how to understand and read body language and how to enter the world of others to understand them better.

On my NLP training course I also learnt how to change unwanted feelings and behaviors. There are many techniques for achieving this including “Anchoring”, in which you will learn to fire off positive states in others and yourself at will. Via anchoring you can also learn to remove bad feelings associated to triggers from the past.

NLP also teaches you how to understand and utilize the strategies that we each run. Human beings have strategies for everything they do from getting out of bed, to shopping in the supermarket. On an NLP course, you will learn to design and install strategies for yourself and others to rapidly achieve your desired results. As a therapist this often involves understanding how a client runs a strategy for anxiety or stress. In a different setting, such as sales, NLP can teach you how to Illicit someone’s buying strategy or utilize a persons eye movements so that you can understand the strategies they use, and customize your sales techniques for each individual.

NLP has many informal techniques for change, which involve the artful use of language. Examples include utilizing questioning techniques that help a person identify their objectives and learning language patterns that create change in a person’s internal representation. In addition, NLP teaches you how to use language to create trance in others (Milton Model), use your language to get more specificity and deeper meaning within your conversation (Meta Model) and how to influence and negotiate with ease and power. Through the art of conversation, (NLP style!) you can enable others to become solution focused.
