NLP can be used for personal and business development. For personal development it’s used to clarify purpose and direction, improve relationships and overcome challenges, such as anxieties and phobias. In business it’s used to improve leadership, sales, communication and influence.

This site gives videos and transcripts of the most important NLP techniques. When you’ve learned the principles behind the techniques you can develop your own. The test is always: Do they benefit the client?

It depends who you are and what you want. If you’re an ambitious professional, of any age, who is interested in either online training or 1:1 Skype (or equivalent) practitioner, master practitioner and NLP coach training, then we’re hard to beat. Having said that, however, we always advise you to always talk to a short list of NLP trainers and make your own mind up.
