NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) offers powerful tools and techniques for raising self-awareness and bringing out the best in ourselves and others. It’s a process of modelling to understand and bring about more awareness and choice in our experiences, thought patterns, and behaviour. It can also be used to model excellence in others we admire, and learn how to create similar results for ourselves.
Often referred to as ‘the essence of excellence’ or ‘the user manual for the mind’, it was originated in the 1970s by John Grinder and Richard Bandler and was based on approaches used by successful therapists.
Over several decades, a variety of models have been developed and these are the fundamental building blocks of this programme. As well as gaining a credible qualification as an NLP Practitioner, participants will have the opportunity for deep and lasting personal development and also build on their facilitation, coaching, and listening skills, which are equally useful in business and in personal life. Anyone who wants to gain clarity, confidence and belief in their future direction will benefit from this highly supportive programme.

"I recently attended Anna's NLP Practitioner programme and I can say it was a transformative experience for me. It was an intimate group and that was perfect for the training.
We learned all the NLP practices by having them demonstrated beautifully and then being given the chance to try them for ourselves so we were able to see and feel the power of them. It was emotional at times and Anna held space for us all as only she can.
I highly recommend this training for anyone who feels called to do it - you won't regret it."

Understand the ‘four pillars’ of NLP – the fundamental elements which support this methodology, and how they can be applied to all aspects of your life and work.
Begin to explore metaphors, how they hold rich information about our experiences at an unconscious level, and deepen your self-awareness by developing your personal metaphors in a way that you can continue afterwards.

Callendar House is a beautiful historic venue dating back to the 14th century. This French-chateau styled stately home has a surprise around every corner.
With an exhibition, gallery, tearoom, and authentic Georgian kitchen it has many treasures on display from over the centuries. The outside space is expansive and varied, and we will be exploring both indoor and outdoor spaces to enhance learning and provide unique perspectives.
The programme raised my awareness of my own patterns of behaviour and offered space and tools for me to start addressing these. The planned follow-up session and support network of fellow participants will allow me to keep working on these.
One of my objectives for attending was to tick the box in terms of gaining the valuable professional qualification, and it gave me so much more than that.
The environment you created was warm, friendly and welcoming and one in which I immediately felt comfortable and able to open up and share with fellow participants.
Your choice of venue was ideal, as it was a large space giving us options to move around and the access to outside space, which added positively to my experience of the programme. Personally, I also like how light and bright the venue was, as well as it being easy to get to and with good catering.
I also enjoyed your bright, colourful and memorable visuals, which were well positioned around the room and added to our learning.
What NLP Practitioner has given me, is a more in-depth knowledge of the NLP tools that were already in my toolkit, and has also given me new tools such as Totes. It has allowed me to grow my network of supportive NLP professionals.
Your open, flexible and skilful facilitation allowed me to find my own way of making the tools work for me, when previously I had shied away from them.
Completing practitioner has increased my appetite to continue my NLP journey so that I can continue to develop myself personally and as a facilitator and coach. I now feel better able to use NLP tools to help myself through challenging situations and well as having a greater overall knowledge of NLP which helps me facilitate more skilfully and deliver training on NLP models more skilfully and knowledgeably.
I feel glad to have had the opportunity of achieving NLP Prac with you Anna. Thank you." Nikki Cinderey, NLP Practitioner
