Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a powerful communications, personal development and psychological healing modality that creates rapid change to the ways we think and feel. NLP does this by altering the ways that we re-present our life experiences in our mind. Using NLP, change is created by replacing outdated thought patterns with new empowering thoughts, feelings, emotions, connections, associations, perceptions etc. NLP has a wide variety of applications in business, from communication skills and coaching through to presenting and sales. This course focuses on the applications of NLP in a business context and does not address emotional healing or personal development issues.

This programme is presented as two, 2-day modules with an opportunity for you to practice the basic NLP skills learnt in the first two days before learning some of the more advanced patterns of NLP in the second module.
