Overview of our NLP Practitioner course

Our UK University-recognised NLP Practitioner training course leads to postgraduate qualifications (Certificate, Diploma and MA) from a UK University (click here for the prospectus, and see FAQs below). It is also recognised by:

  • Institute of Leadership and Management* Accredited ‘Advanced Influencing & Personal Effectiveness Skills’
  • The Association for Coaching‘s ACCT and ADCT courses.
  • ANLP International, the UK”s leading NLP body.

*The Institute of Leadership & Management is one of the UK’s top leadership and management qualifications bodies.

With all these recognitions and accreditations, you know you will be receiving high-quality training even if you just want to do the NLP Practitioner course without the postgraduate or other courses.

Our NLP Practitioner course focuses on how you can use NLP techniques in business/at work, coaching and sport to help you to achieve huge benefits. 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 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.

    Frequently asked questions

    NLP Training with The Lazarus Consultancy

    How does the postgraduate link with the UK University work?

    In Spring 2020 Jeremy became a member of the academic faculty of Neuro Minds Ltd for the MA in Professional Practice (Neuro Coaching) from a UK University (click here for the prospectus), and he therefore trains and supervises some of the modules required for the postgraduate Certificate, postgraduate Diploma or full MA . Enrolments take place in September and March each year. The MA is run by our long-time colleagues Douglas De Souza (CEO of Neuro Minds Ltd) and Dr Sally Vanson (the academic lead).

    Only very few NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and coaching programmes will count as being approved training for these Neuro Coaching qualifications. They must be run and assessed by the faculty members that have been agreed with the University. The Lazarus Consultancy is delighted to confirm that Jeremy Lazarus is a full member of the academic faculty, meeting the University’s and the developer’s requirements, which means that our NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner courses count as being approved training for these qualifications.

    Regardless of your level of coaching / NLP qualifications (whether novice, expert or anything in-between), there is a route for you to gain a postgraduate qualification. Even if you do not wish to follow this path yet, you’ll know that you will be receiving quality NLP training, and that the door is open for you to upgrade to a postgraduate qualification until 2025.

    What is the link to the AC (Association for Coaching) accredited courses?

    This is covered in depth here. In summary, the AC has 4 levels of accredited coach training courses, and our NLP Practitioner training leads to two of them (Accredited Certificate in Coach Training – ACCT, and Accredited Diploma in Coach Training – ADCT). The additional study is explained on the relevant page.

    How will you learn all this NLP Practitioner material in 8 days?

    Before the course you will receive your own copy of approved audio learning material. This easy to learn pre-study takes around 50-60 hours, all of which you do before the course when and where YOU want.

    During the formal training we touch on some of the theory you will already have learned from the pre-study, and update you with any recent techniques. You therefore spend much of the classroom time on practical exercises, getting it ‘in the muscle’.

    The trainers and the coaching assistants will be there to give you feedback and support to heighten your proficiency. In addition, on the final day you will have the opportunity to integrate all you have learned on the course with a coaching session.

    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.
