NLP for Coaching Overview

This is an 8 day NLP for coaches programme and it’s aimed to give new and existing coaches the essential skills of coaching. Essentially this is the full NLP practitioner course giving you the skills required to become an effective coach.

Whether you are planning to become a formal coach or use coaching more within an organisation as a manager or leader, the skills, techniques and patterns learnt on this course are invaluable.

No one ever really knows NLP. The study is all about discovering what works. From studying what works, patterns and techniques are revealed. This means once you embark on your learning of NLP you too will discover that the more you learn, the more you notice even more possibilities and ways to apply it.


What Next

Usually, more questions. Training in NLP is very personal. Even when a group of individuals choose to train in NLP specifically for coaching, each of them has their own style and ways in which they are planning to apply their learning and new skillset. With that in mind, please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements.


How I Use NLP in Coaching?

I’ve been a coach using NLP since 2007. When I first started as a full-time coach/therapist I was seeing up to 40 clients per week. (I wouldn’t advise you do this). I used NLP to help people discover their goals, drivers and core values. This gave me and them a solid place to work from. I then formed a new business in 2010. I used NLP extensively to coach my team and my clients. Having the ability to really understand people using NLP is what makes it so fascinating.


I have also spent over 2 years as a business coach. Without NLP I never would have been as effecive or dare I say, have had so much fulfilment.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are a coach or are planning to coach others, then absolutely.

This course is the full 8 day NLP practitioner course fully accredited by ANLP.

If you are not necessarily looking for accreditation then perhaps you may choose to look into the 5-day course for those wanting the skills without the procedure for the accreditation.

There are so many NLP trainers. Why should I train with Mike?
Training is a lot like food. Everyone has their own taste. Therefore, choose a trainer who you feel like you have some sort of connection with. You can see my videos, listen to my podcasts and see if I feel right for you.

The relationship between the trainer and trainee is paramount. Even though all training courses run over a few days, it’s beneficial when a person comes on a course and they get the idea of how that course will be delivered. For me, choose a trainer who you have a connection with from the content they put online. This is one of the reasons we have a phone call before committing to the training and why I have an ever-growing online NLP training resource.

Experience: I have been a hands on therapist, coach and trainer for over 10 years. This means I have worked with and see about every possible scenario when it comes to creating change.

Business: I have real passion and experience for business. I have started a company and sold that on in only 3 years. I have also coached hundreds of companies (The people really) so this is an area of expertise.
