Why Mastering NLP with Richard Bandler is the right choice for you

You are in experienced hands

If you did your Practitioner training elsewhere, then welcome!
And if you've already done your NLP Practitioner Training with NLP Life Training, you already know the high quality of training we offer.
On the Master Practitioner, you're about to train with the largest NLP training company in the world. We've trained tens of thousands of students in numerous different formats. We've helped them positively change for good. We are still in contact with many of our students, ready to give advice and hear their stories as the years unfold.

There is no better trainer

Dr Richard Bandler's vast experience of over 40 years' study and training will give you the best learning experience of your life. His deep curiosity and fascination for the psychological side of self-improvement led him to co-found NLP. He knows NLP like no other. He was the inventor of the term NLP and his definition is used by the Oxford English Dictionary:

Neurolinguistic Programming – OED Definition
(n) a model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behavior and the subjective experiences (esp. patterns of thought) underlying them; a system of alternative therapy based on this which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behavior.

This time, you go deeper

Students who come back to train at Master Practitioner level with us know how inspiring, joyful, innovative, inspirational and powerful our training is. What motivates them is how much more there is to learn.
NLP Master Practitioner training peels open the skills you learned in Practitioner training, showing you the core beneath.
From here, you learn NLP modelling, the foundations on which to build your own unique skills.
You learn the greater subtleties of reading and using body language, deeper levels of linguistic techniques, powerful skills to identify strategies and the essential techniques of overt and covert hypnosis.

You must be an NLP Practitioner to take this course

Master Practitioner training requires you to already be able to practise the skills, attitudes and suppositions taught to you in NLP Practitioner Training.
You will need to show evidence of training to a minimum of NLP Practitioner training from a reputable company before you enroll on this course. Wherever you trained, we will make you welcome.

Our training assistants come back time and again, too

Our strong and sensitive team of assistants own successful NLP businesses. Between them, they have decades of experience in training at institutes, coaching and mentoring. Yet they come back to help out at our trainings because you never stop learning from Richard.
As always, they are there to help you and are always happy to share knowledge and offer guidance when you ask.
Their superb knowledge will make your journey through NLP Practitioner training easy.

"So, why should I learn this now?"

So many students before you have experienced being amazed at learning NLP, at any age.
In our experience, it's always exactly the right moment to do this course.

Who is NLP for?

Whether you want to learn more self control, mastery of fears, greater motivation, better communication skills, enhanced ability to build relationships, persuasion – or help others do the same, this training course will give you the skills you want.

What you will learn

You will experience 9 days of concentrated NLP training. The Master Practitioner is always popular, and always sells out.

Richard's unique NLP training is carefully layered and structured to raise your learning levels to new heights.
The NLP Master Practitioner Training takes place between 09:30 – 18:30 every day.
We ask that delegates arrive on the first day slightly earlier to help with registration and allocation of course materials.

Learning objectives:

The Master Practitioner Course takes a slightly different approach to learning in contrast with the Practitioner Course.  In the Master Practitioner Course, students are already expected to be competent at the skills and attitudes central to NLP.  The course is designed to build on the knowledge students have already acquired, in order to really "Master" those skills.

Mastery includes attaining a deeper understanding of the methodology beneath the skills and patterns taught in the Practitioner course.  This will enable the students to improvise and create new applications of NLP in different situations as the need arises.

The Master Practitioner Course requires that delegates have a good working knowledge of NLP, and in order to ensure that this is the case, a small part of the course involves the delegates revisiting some of the training that they were given in the Practitioner Course.  This time though, they are asked to consider their previous training at a deeper level and are shown specifically what underlies their initial training. 

This approach simultaneously allows delegates to fill in any "gaps" in their understanding, and brush up on skills that have either grown rusty, or where they consider that they need to improve.  From here, the delegates can then proceed into the Master Practitioner Course proper.  The Master Practitioner Manual thus recapitulates much of what was presented in the Practitioner Course.  However, the oral component has a new and deeper emphasis, as is reflected in the exercises laid out in the Master Practitioner manual.  As with the Practitioner Course, the Master Practitioner Course relies heavily on oral components from the trainers.

What delegates will learn:
  • Behavioral competency in all Practitioner level skills, and the ability to demonstrate utilisation of several of these skills simultaneously.
  • The ability to design behavioral flexibility and attitudes that produce specific results with self and others.
  • The ability to identify and utilise the Master Practitioner skills, techniques, and patterns linguistically, as follows:
  • Changing Beliefs - the ability to combine skills to alter the way that clients / colleagues perceive challenges, to remove negative conceptions and to enable clients / colleagues to adopt beliefs that will enable them to reach their desired outcomes.
  • Eliciting & Utilizing Meta-Programs - identifying and understanding the unconscious predilections of clients.
  • Identification of and Utilization of Criteria - the ability to identify how a person prioritises their interactions with the world.
  • Adjusting Criteria - how to help a person find a better means of prioritisation.
  • Sleight of Mouth Patterns - the ability to embed commands, reframe perceptions and make changes in consciousness conversationally.
  • Deliberate multilevel communication - how to deliver messages consciously and unconsciously, simultaneously.
  • Stacking Realities - building metaphors within metaphors to make a message stronger.
  • Timeline Patterns - using perceptions of time to bring about change.
  • Stacking Presuppositions - building on one asserted premise to lead a line of thought and perception towards a desired outcome.
  • Temporal/Spatial Predicates - how specific predicates can affect thinking
  • Negotiating - utilising ethical negotiation skills that will enable all parties to arrive at an ecologically sound solution.
  • Propulsion Systems - how to build directions into people's thoughts and behaviours.
  • Installing Strategies - teaching people to think in new ways to arrive at specific outcomes, either by using hypnosis or otherwise.
  • Threshold Pattern - how to break unwanted patterns of behaviour through "thresholding".
  • Breaking Generalizations & Building New Ones - undermining unhelpful generalised statements about the world, and replacing them with more useful ones.
  • Rapid Inductions, Deep Trance Phenomena - the skills of hypnotic trance induction, and creating deep  trance phenomena, such as positive hallucination, negative hallucination, amnesia, anaesthesia, arm levitation, etc.
  • Deep Trance Identification - unconsciously absorbing new skills and insights through identifying with a model in trance.
  • Demonstrated ability to perform change work with self and others - how to combine these many skills to demonstrate mastery of them.
  • Testing:
The final day of the course involves the oral testing of the delegates, under the practised eyes of trainers, who can evaluate delegates on their strong points and areas where they need to work further.

Certification and licensing is only given after testing.

We care

It is our privilege to watch our students' life-paths develop in ways they never dreamed. That's why time and again they come back for further training and discover new aspects of personal development.
We love seeing our students learn new skills AND new attitudes that enable them to use those skills better.
Once you've done the course, you'll have fond memories of friends you made and how you learned together. You are part of the bigger organisation. You become part of an NLP family.
We love to see you become the best you can be.

Accept no imitations

There are many NLP training organisations, but none has the vast experience we have in training people to the highest levels. What's more, all of our NLP certificates are signed personally by Dr Richard Bandler.
Having our NLP Master Practitioner and Hypnotic Practitioner certificate is the sign that you've passed the highest standards of training, and is recognised throughout the personal development world.

There nothing of more value to you.

About the seminar

Does Richard teach every day?

Yes, the teaching is split between Richard, John La Valle & Kathleen La Valle, and predominantly Richard teaches every morning

Are there other trainers?

Yes we have a team of dedicated assistants who are trainers in their own right and give up their time to teach at some level and overlook the smooth running of the seminars.

Do I need to know NLP before attending the course?

Yes you will have had to attend a NLP Practitioner seminar before you do the NLP Master Practitioner seminar.
We will require a copy of your Practitioner certificate before you attend.

Do I have to do any homework or any preparation for the course?

No, you will be given a comprehensive manual on the first day in which you can make notes if you wish but Richard teaches in a way that is fun and interactive and feels that’s the best way for the attendees to learn and get the most benefit from the trainings.

What documents do I need to complete?

On the first day you will be required to sign a short disclaimer for marketing & filming purposes and complete a license agreement, one copy to be given to you and one to be held by The Society of NLP.

Does it matter how many people are in the class?

No, Richard calibrates to his audience and teaches on both a conscious and un-conscious level. His unique style of teaching means that it doesn’t matter if there are 20 or 200 people in the class.
There is also a team of dedicated assistants that are always there to help and assist if needed.

Can I record the trainings and take photographs?

No filming or photography is permitted at all throughout the course and whilst the trainers are on stage. You will get an opportunity at the end of the seminar to have photos with Richard and John.

What are the timings?

Generally we say from 9am to 6pm. Richard goes on stage at approximately 9.30am but there is no schedule as such with regards to timings. We ask you to arrive earlier on the first day to complete your registration documents and historically the last day always finishes earlier than usual by about an hour or so. Lunch is usually an hour to an hour and a half and there will be a morning and afternoon coffee break.

What happens if I miss a day?

If you miss a day of the trainings then let a staff member know and an assistant will be able to catch you up on what was missed. If you miss more than one day you will not qualify for your certificate at the end of the course and may only get a provisional one.

When will I get my certificate and what does it allow me to do?

If you complete the 7 or 9 days training and you qualify, you will receive your NLP Licensed Practitioner or Master Practitioner certificate that’s is signed by Dr Richard Bandler with a society standard seal. This will enable you to use your newly acquired NLP skills in both a personal and professional manner.

Can I buy NLP related products?

Yes there will be a full range of books, CDs and DVDs for sale throughout the duration of the seminar.
About the venue

Is accommodation and lunch included?

No, you will be served tea, coffee and biscuits in the morning and afternoon breaks and water is provided but you have to sort out your own accommodation and lunch.
The hotel or ourselves can usually recommend places to eat and stay near the venue.
