About Robbie Steinhouse

As an NLP trainer, Robbie Steinhouse trains and coaches internationally in his role as director of NLP School, offering accredited neuro-linguistic programming training. He also heads up the Coaching Consultancy, a specialist provider of executive coaching.

Robbie’s focus on coaching, NLP and the human dimension of business stems from his career creating and running businesses in recruitment, property and insurance – now run by an independent management team.

As these businesses grew, he found an ever-increasing need for more than just commercial skills, both for himself and his team: business is ultimately about developing people. He also found a bewildering range of help and models on offer and the material that he found (by far) the most useful was NLP, especially when linked to a coaching approach. His passion for the human dimension of business led him to give up his executive role and focus entirely on coaching and training in 2002.

He’s an NLP trainer that runs NLP Practitioner programmes and other courses in London, and has established NLP School as one of the UK’s leading NLP providers.

Robbie combined his commercial acumen with his expertise in the psychology of business in his first book, ‘Think Like an Entrepreneur’ in 2008. He believes that an entrepreneurial mindset has a wider application than simply in business. Entrepreneurs tend to look for ‘angles’ – effective and unusual ways of creating opportunities or dealing with problems.

In 2010 Robbie published two books. ‘Brilliant Decision Making’, part of the ‘Brilliant Business’ series, covers the NLP principles and models underlying decision making. ‘How to Coach with NLP’ reveals how traditional coaching methods can be fused with general NLP ‘attitudes’ and specific NLP techniques to bring profound improvements in both personal and professional life.

Robbie’s most recent book, Mindful Business Leadership is published by Routledge.

You can also catch him in central London, of course, as the trainer for our NLP Essential Skills and NLP Practitioner courses.

“I chose this particular course because it is not run by a ‘cult of personality ‘like some other trainers. I wanted to focus on the content and the learning, not the instructor and their stuff. Robbie makes the learning real, practical and accessible (and fun and funny!) Phenomenal.”

“Very good. Liked the style and particularly appreciated the “scientific” rather than a “hippy crystal mystical” approach to delivering and understanding the material.”

“By far the best NLP trainer I have ever come across. I love the “British” (healthy scepticism) version of NLP. I find the gentle style hugely effective.”

“Robbie had a great balance of substance and style – fun and engaging whilst sharing depth of knowledge. Supportive and energetic. Full of ideas and new possibilities. Very pragmatic approach.”
