I have trained and certified countless people in disciplines including coaching, hypnosis, NLP, and speaking from stage, around the globe inlaces as diverse as Los Angeles, New York, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Singapore.
This has included training people to be able to train others.
This year I am returning to training and launching a brand new bespoke set of trainings which will incorporate the latest developments, as well as time-proven stalwarts, of coaching including, of course, hypnosis and NLP, and a whole lot more.
These trainings are organised into three levels, to provide the full range covering your needs whether they are just an interest in the tools, using them to help individuals to make change, or even using them in group form or beyond.
Each set of training takes a methodical approach to ensure everything is covered in a detailed and efficient way, which means that every student is able to fully appreciate and understand every section, seeing how they all fit together precisely to provide the complete suite of tools.
The training includes both detailed theoretical study plus methodical practical exercises to understand how each process works.
This is not the old style of “Practitioner” and “Master Practitioner” training.
The problem with those is that it is a marketing trick. They are effectively a single NLP course, split into two courses to give the illusion of lower costs.
Unfortunately, those who graduate from Practitioner Level find they have an incomplete level of training, without the complete set of skills to be able to use them in a meaningful way. I’ve seen this in a lot of trainings out there over the past 10 years.
So the way I am structuring things is a little different.
Yes, if you want to be a full coach using NLP and hypnosis to help others then two courses are needed – there’s no getting away from he fact that there is a lot of content to cover!
That said, the two are designed such that if you only attend the first level, you sill come away with very usable tools and skills.
Think of it this way –
- Level 1 gives you the skills and tools you need to use this stuff to make changes in yourself.
- Level 2 builds on this to give you the skills and tools to coach others in a 1-on-1 format.
- Level 3 will take it a stage further to give the skills for leading others to change in a group format.
Covers the techniques themselves, focusing mainly on teaching NLP fundamentals and techniques, plus introduction to hypnosis.
Covers what these tools are, what they are not, the basis upon which they work, as well as exploring a wide range of the more common and powerful tools and techniques.
Fills in more advanced techniques, and teaches coaching – taking the tools from Level 1 to build a coaching framework for individual clients. A lot of the focus is on how to effectively coach, how to get to the root of a client’s situation, to create a relevant intervention, to deliver it, and the followup work necessary. Covers both one-off single-issue work, and ongoing coaching (two different disciplines).
Several of the topics covered in Level 1 are revisited in more depth, to a more advanced level, building upon the rest of the work developed in level 1.
Further deep refinements and distinctions of the concepts from 1 and 2, enabling the participants to begin to develop their own techniques. Also covers using the tools with groups (e.g. from the stage for talks, or in the written word for books and marketing, or even in group coaching sessions.)
How Much And When?
The first Level 1 course will be run as a 7 night residential course in Scotland in August or September of 2020. This means we will all be tougher for the entire duration the training, eating, sleeping, and training together. This immersive experience helps to give us the best way to absorb and retain the knowledge.
For this first time of running, the price will be significantly reduced to £750 per person for the week. This includes all training plus accommodation for the duration of the course. Your only additional costs would be travel to the venue at the start, travel back home at the end, and any food / drink while you are there.
This will depend upon the uptake for level 1, but should be in October of November of 2020, again at £750 per person.
This level will be launched in 2021.
Why Is This Discounted?
Simple reason is this is the firs time I’ve run this version of the training, so some of the edges may need to be rounded off.
The content will still be solid, you will get everything you need, it just might not be quite as polished as a training which has been run several times.
So, to reflect that, and as a thank you to you for trusting me enough to take part in the first release of this training, I’m offering a good discount.
All pretty standard stuff really, throughout all trainings across all industries.
You get the full training at a significant discount, I get to see how well it all flows, and at the end of it if you feel so inclined, I get some testimonials and some very helpful feedback, which makes it easier to sell future runs of the course.
How Many Participants?
For this first one, I am capping it at 6 people, so we can ensure everyone gets maximum benefit.
In order for the course to work (both financially and for the participants), at least 3 attendees will be required, with 6 being the optimum number.
What About Coronavirus?
Unfortunately since I first announced these plans, the world has been massively affected by Coronavirus and we are currently in a lockdown.
The trainings will go ahead, they will still be live and in person, they will sill be residential.
The only effect is that the timing will, if necessary due to lockdown and social distancing, be delayed until such time as the authorities advise that it is safe.
Naturally, I’ll be keeping a close eye on the situation and adjusting timeframes accordingly, but jus as we will all get through this and come out the other end, so these trainings will go ahead!
After all, life goes on, and it’s important to have something to look forward to after this is over!
Can’t We Just Do It Online?
Yes and no.
Yes, it is absolutely possible to teach the theory online (I’ve done that many times in the past), and to do online demonstrations, etc.
However, a vital part of training includes practical implementation,,dentation of what you’ve learned – i.e. I teach, you do, we debrief.
That is a fundamental, non-negotiable, and with the best will in the world online does not offer a full replacement for that.
I mean yes, the tools and techniques you will learn can be used online (a great many off my clients have worked with me via Skype and Zoom, since long before most people had ever heard of either!), but you absolutely need the in-person practise first to get the best learning. Plus with us all being physically present, I can offer you levels of support way beyond anything possible online.
If you are interested in either Level 1 or Levels 1&2, then let me know asap. Also let me know how definite your interest level is – “vaguely curious”, “definite strong interest”, “tell me when to pay and I’m there” – to help me gauge accordingly!
Not looking for financial commitment right now, but I do need to get a good idea of how much interest there is for this Summer so I can plan and schedule everything as appropriate.
