Currently I am running a monthly NLP practice group and have a Foundation in NLP and Coaching course planned to start in February 2018 and again in May 2018 for more information on both see below.

NLP Practice Group

We held our first practice group in November

It was well attended and as the name suggests we practiced lots of different approaches to presenting information and communicating with others.

The practice group is equally useful for people who have no formal NLP training but want to learn about it and develop their communication skills.

This is a monthly event and in each session we will explore a specific topic, refresh our understanding of the theory, introduce some new ideas and then practice tools and techniques that are relevant in our daily lives.

Small groups with some structured learning, lots of practice and the chance to enjoy developing your skills and understanding alongside others.

The next practice group will be held on: Monday 15th January 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Topic: January – new year resolutions – we are going to look at goal setting!

Location: Killingworth, Newcastle upon Tyne

Cost: £10 including refreshments (payable on the night)

Foundation in NLP and Coaching Skills

This is a diploma level NLP training (INLPTA standards) which incorporates coaching principles and methodology.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to understanding behaviours.  It makes the link between our unique experiencing of life, our behaviours and the language we use.  These links form the basis for a range of tools which can be used to provide new insights and to explore more effective ways of engaging with the world.  Learning about NLP within the context of coaching provides a framework for using these skills appropriately and effectively.

Who is it for?

This course will cover knowledge and skills that are equally as useful at work, at home or in social situations.

It will be of interest to anyone who is:

  • Looking to influence positive outcomes for themselves or others
  • Interested in their own personal development
  • Curious about NLP and coaching

More specifically it will be relevant to anyone who supports, manages or mentors others and/or who is involved in one of the helping professions.

What will I learn?

The training includes

  • The origins and principles of NLP and coaching
  • How to structure conversations that are solution focussed and support change
  • An introduction to language patterns and how to use these to improve your communications
  • How to develop compelling and achievable goals and well-formed outcomes
  • The use of the NLP to explore experiences, open up possibilities for change and generate new behaviours
  • Use of NLP processes such as timelines, frames and simple anchoring
  • A training manual covering all the topics and exercises

Dates: Training takes place on five Saturdays from 9.30 to 4.45 – February 24, March 3, 10, 17 and 24

Location: Newcastle upon Tyne

What people say about the training

“So much more than just training, a valuable way of helping yourself to help others.” Julie
