Overview of our NLP Master Practitioner / ILM Recognised Mastering Influencing & Personal Effectiveness Skills

Our ANLP recognised NLP Master Practitioner training course leads to this ILM Recognised certificate (see FAQs below). It is also a large part of the Association for Coaching’s ADCT and AADCT courses. The ILM  is one of the UK’s top leadership and management qualifications bodies, and the AC is one of the world’s leading coaching bodies, so you know you will be receiving high-quality training in any event.

The NLP Master Practitioner course focuses on how you can master the use of NLP techniques in business/at work, coaching and sport to help you to achieve huge benefits. There are 14 days in 4 modules, plus pre-study, plus some additional work for the ILM and AC certificates (see FAQs).

The course is specially designed so that you not only know the coaching and NLP techniques, but also know that you know them and how to use them. In order for you to be a truly excellent NLP Master Practitioner or coach, we also cover what to do in those rare situations when it is NOT appropriate or safe to use NLP or to coach. And remember, we also offer a money-back guarantee if you’re not completely satisfied, so it’s a no-risk decision.

Fantastic course.  Changed my life.

    What our students and clients say

    Ivona Gordon

    Jeremy has a unique approach to bringing out the best in people. He certainly practices what he preaches!  Jeremy is one of a handful of trainers/coaches/practitioners that I would, without any hesitation, recommend to others.  He is knowledgeable, ethical and shows genuine passion for the work he does and how best to serve others.

    Mel Larsen

    Before doing the NLP course, I had felt I needed more coaching approaches and methodologies. The course gave me a lot of new techniques which I have used to help my coaching clients. Also I was launching my new coaching brand as I was doing the programme and looking back I can see it helped me to set big targets and reach them.

    Donna de Villiers

    I have had the pleasure of studying with Jeremy, and the NLP he has taught has had a wonderful impact on my personal and professional life.  Jeremy explains NLP in an accessible, easy, manner and for me took away the fluff of the subject.  The practical help on the courses and the smaller classes give you a personal learning environment, perfect for this subject.  I highly recommend Jeremy for anyone interested in NLP.

    Simon Fanning

    I found the course to be enlightening both personally and professionally.  Jeremy’s experience of the corporate world allowed for a real life perspective to be taken and a focused view into NLP and its application in Business and coaching.

    Dave Cordle

    I’ve undertaken three major trainings with Jeremy: NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and most recently NLP Sports Practitioner. I keep coming back because the training is thorough, ethical and ecological, and it’s academically recognized. As a career coach I work with people at all stages of their career, across levels and across a wide range of industries.

    Dara Caryotis

    I feel privileged to have discovered NLP, it has changed my life. Understanding communication, the impact of language and being able to change unwanted behaviours has been the difference that made the difference for me.  Jeremy is so much more than an NLP Master Trainer.  It is a powerful rewarding experience learning and evolving with Jeremy. I highly recommend studying with Jeremy, one of my best decisions.
