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 attended Anna’s NLP program. Not only is she capable of truly connecting with each and every attendee, but she also has a wonderful way of teaching in a playful yet sincere way.
I cannot wait to use my new NLP skills at home to communicate better and at my workplace thus making my headshot sessions a unique experience.
Thank you so much, Anna!"

"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."
Gwenne Dickson, NLP Practitioner
"I completed the NLP Practitioner course in November 2019 with Anna Bell. I have worked in the Finance industry for 30 years and attended several courses through work and obtained qualifications through the Open University. I can honestly say that the NLP practitioner course has been the most beneficial for me personally and helped accelerate my growth and understanding on various topics such as emotional intelligence, self awareness, compassion, communication and perspectives. Anna is kind, considerate, non judgemental and real. She has a tremendous skill of bringing people together from different backgrounds and walks of life, enabling them to find common ground and build trust. Anna holds space to grow and develop people in a way that I have never experienced before. My whole perspective and outlook on work, play and relationships with family and friends has changed for the better and on so many levels. Since completing the course I feel more in control, confident and find it easier to mange interactions with people at work and in my social life.
I would highly recommend the NLP practitioner course with Anna Bell. If you want to grow a coaching practice or simply develop yourself and learn new life skills then make this course a priority. It’s worth every penny and for me has created a catalyst for even more learning and practice. A positive paradigm shift for sure! Thank you Anna Bell. You are a true inspiration and a fine talent."

"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
