NLP Coaching Course

Course Description

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is a branch of Applied Psychology that aims to enhance the individual’s innate ability to make wise choices. The study of NLP involves recognising and learning patterns of human behavior and thinking – and then finding ways to make sense of them.

On this NLP course, you will learn the meaning of communication and why people communicate in different fashions. The course focuses on how we consciously and unconsciously use mental processes that influence our surroundings and life, relationships, and career.

We all know about the powerful connection that exists between mind and body and that if our minds are at odds with our bodies, we will not be able to get the best that we can out of our bodies. So, just like we train our bodies, so do we need to train our minds.

The study of neurolinguistic programming teaches us that we can change the way we think via the words that we use. This is a very powerful tool for anyone to have at their disposal, and a good understanding of NLP will assist you with cultivating a positive mindset with your clients too.
