Key Questions

What is a NLP certification? – You’ve attended and successfully completed a training which is accredited by one of the key certification bodies.

Is NLP a rcognised qualification? -To some yes, to others no – do your own due diligence. In our opinion it’s best to explore NLP because you see real world benefits in the skills, capabilities and models that you’ll acquire, rather than the certificate you’ll recieve.

How do most people benefit from NLP? – They clarify what they want and how to achieve it, while over coming any blocks on route. Key applications include leadership, sales, coaching, relationships, managing stakeholders and improving physical and mental health.

Do I Really Need NLP Certification? – Not necessarily. No, If you’re using NLP to improve your life and work, then I’d recommend you focus on what will give the best skill set, and what will help you generate the best results for you.  You can still get some really excellent results. Absolutely Yes, If you’re setting yourself up as an NLP professional.

A word of caution, we’ve come across self taught practitioners (without certification), who are really bad. So please do your due diligence on any NLP coach or NLP trainer you choose to work with.

Which NLP certification is best? If you’re looking for the very best NLP certification, look for training providers whose certificates are counter signed by one of the two  co-creators of NLP, Richard Bandler or John Grinder. They created NLP and have continually developed the field over 40 years. Their signatures are the best guarantee that you’re getting the very best NLP training.
