By splitting our NLP Practitioner course up into five modules, the traditional training method, our clients truly get to work the material into their lives.
NLP training is no exception to the rule that the effect of courses, however inspirational, tends to wear off after a while. Yes, maybe after a particular module, attention can drift, but by regularly re-entering the world of NLP, our students find themselves rediscovering the subject several times over. They adjust misconceptions that may have formed - nobody gets anything perfectly right first time.
We think this is the right way to structure NLP courses. London is our preferred venue, as it is central. We also use a particularly pleasant (and central) venue, Regent's Park College. This is actually in Regent's Park (though only a few minutes' walk from Baker Street tube), surrounded by greenery and lakes. We feel that a natural environment facilitates learning. One student described the venue as 'the icing on the cake'. We think icing is rather nice and should be enjoyed. Fun is part of NLP training. London-based though we are, we have had people from all over the UK, Europe and even further afield coming to our NLP courses.
Your main teacher at NLP School will be Robbie Steinhouse. Robbie has a reputation as an original and important voice in NLP training. His approach is practical, down-to-earth - Robbie is a successful businessman and author, who has put his own NLP training into action. At the same time, he has a great interest in psychology and other theoretical material such as systems thinking: this isn't just a set of life-skills techniques, but a tool for asking deep questions and creating real, lasting personal growth.
Robbie is also known for his wit, and a slightly 'left-field' approach to the subject. If you have no sense of humour, you might want to look somewhere else for your NLP training (London is not short of alternatives...) Otherwise, welcome aboard - the journey is not always easy, because NLP, if well taught, is about looking at and changing your whole self, but it can still be fun. Robbie uses a clear, simple training methodology. It is 'introduce, demonstrate, practice, discuss'.
The order is important. Too often, training can become 'introduce, discuss because someone raises a point, go off on a tangent...' NLP training sometimes involves introducing concepts that are counter-intuitive. The best way students can come to grips with them is to experience them. The very act of doing something before discussing it creates a 'reframe': rather than trying to squeeze it into your existing mindset, if you do it first and it works, your mindset has to change.
Your NLP training will be supported by a comprehensive manual. This contains material that reiterates the main points, expands on some of the theory and adds simple practical exercises that you can do to increase your familiarity with the material.
