Practitioner Course Content

This course covers all the requirements that are required for Professional Membership of ANLP and then takes NLP into another dimension by applying the skills learned into the field of Energy Psychology. You’ll also learn how to test and balance a person’s energy along with some of the most effective “tapping techniques” discovered so far in this rapidly developing area of personal change.

You’ll learn language patterns that can make a huge difference to the changes experienced by the people you communicate with, as you discover the magic of using metaphors to produce change at an unconscious level.

The course also covers the subject of “eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing” EMDR, which is fast becoming recognised as a therapy in its own right. Used in conjunction with NLP, EMDR can produce changes in emotional states and conditions such as: fear, worry, anxiety, guilt, depression and PTSD.

Learning hypnotic language patterns to help people get into totally relaxed states is all part of this course. Hypnotherapy is simply hypnosis combined with language patterns that facilitate change in another person. All proficient Hypnotherapists know that NLP was modelled on one of the world’s most effective Hypnotherapists of his day, Milton Erickson. Milton’s language patterns are an essential part of NLP and you’ll learn how to master them on this course.

If you’re a therapist the ability to adapt and incorporate other forms of therapy into your existing practice will set you apart from all the other therapists working in your specialist field. It’s the positive results you get that generate recommendations and keep you in business!

Whether you're a therapist or, like many of our delegates, just wanting to improve your lot in life this course is, in the words of a recent graduate, "life changing".

Anyone involved in NLP knows that if what you’re doing isn’t working – change what you’re doing. However, you can only do that when you have other tools in your tool box that you can employ to bring about the changes you desire.
