The NLP Practitioner Programme with Neuroscience will equip you to become an effective NLP Practitioner, guiding and inspiring others to make real and lasting life changes.

By combining the power of NLP with the rigour of neuroscience, our internationally recognised instructors explain exactly what works, why it works and how to apply it in all areas of life.

What is an NLP Practitioner?

An NLP Practitioner is someone skilled in the application and understanding of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) tools. Through their expertise, they guide others to harness these tools themselves in order to enhance aspects of their lives, such as their emotional wellbeing, creativity and productivity at work.

How to become a certified NLP Practitioner

To become a successful NLP Practitioner yourself, you should seek out the highest-quality training available.

No prior experience or knowledge is required to attend the NLP Practitioner Programme with Neuroscience and we pride ourselves in retaining a world-class team of programme leaders that are internationally recognised for their work in the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

The NLP Practitioner Programme with Neuroscience is certified by the ICF, which will in turn award credits for you to use towards your own individual ICF certification, should you choose that route.

What is NLP Practitioner training? 

At the core of NLP Practitioner training is the completion of a proven programme where you learn from experienced experts in this field. Here you build the skills necessary to build a rapport with clients and impart the knowledge and techniques that will help them achieve success, as well as increase your own depth of knowledge.

The NLP Practitioner Programme with Neuroscience guides you to develop these essential skills that benefit you and those around you, with unique additional content that ties NLP to the rigours of neuroscience. This extra layer provides a deeper perspective that’s valuable to both existing practitioners and those new to the discipline.

What makes this NLP Practitioner course unique?

Our NLP Practitioner certification programme is unique in that it combines insights from the world of NLP with the amazing discoveries that neuroscience is continuing to reveal about our brains’ physical development and the various processes that occur within it. This presents powerful, compelling and practical content for both experienced practitioners looking to deepen their understanding and for those just starting their journey.

The NLP Practitioner Programme with Neuroscience is a 12-day NLP Practitioner course comprising 4 modules that take place over 4 months. This structure allows you to take your learnings from each module and use them in real world situations each month. This applied learning approach helps you to assimilate the material and make huge strides as the programme progresses.

The programme is led by Ian McDermott, the practitioner and author who first brought NLP and Coaching together and then did the same for NLP and Neuroscience. Along with fellow course leader Professor Patricia Riddell, Ian has been at the forefront of applying pioneering work in the neurosciences to NLP – and bringing its practical benefits to people from all walks of life. Over the last 30 years, Ian has trained thousands of NLP Practitioners.

How does it work?

Two factors have allowed us to establish what we believe to be the optimal format for NLP training with. The first is our extensive experience in guiding people to become NLP Practitioners. The second is the way we have managed to integrate the latest research from the neurosciences on how the brain learns best.

Our NLP Practitioner Programme with Neuroscience is taught over 4 monthly modules of 3 days, imparting in-depth knowledge in a short window while allowing sufficient time in between to digest and integrate.

Experiential learning is at the heart of this programme. In addition, to ensure you get the most from your experience, we incorporate a variety of learning exercises into our training modules, including:
