Overview

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a psychological approach that deals with the relationships between language, behaviour, thoughts and feelings. It is based on the idea that we can change our thoughts and behaviours by changing the way we use language. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practitioners work with clients to discover their preferred representational system (PRS), in order to 'reprogramme' their thoughts, attitudes and behaviour, helping them to lead happier, more fulfilled lives. 

This course is designed to introduce you to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and how it can be used to improve your own life and the lives of those around you. You will learn about the history of NLP, its key concepts and principles and how to put NLP into practice.

What you'll learn

Unit 1 - Introduction to NLP

In the opening module, you’ll learn all about exactly what NLP is, what services NLP practitioners offer and how to become and effective one, as well as safeguarding and why it’s important. You’ll consider why it’s so important to gain the ability to listen, and how this skill can be honed, and how to bring your individuality to NLP sessions. Moving on, you’ll study ethics and professional conduct, confidentiality and anonymity.

Unit 2 - NLP and the mind

In unit two, you’ll firstly study how human beings process information. You’ll delve into the seven meta-programs, different learning styles, the five senses, and discover how eye movement offers clues as to what a person is thinking. Next, you’ll consider how our beliefs affect our state of mind and our thoughts. You’ll learn what ‘anchors’ are, how presuppositions can create irrational or unhelpful thought cycles, as well as how to reframe negative experiences. Moving on, you’ll study communication skills and methods, including body language and voice tonality, the language of open questions, and how to respond positively to clients. Lastly, you’ll study the concept of neuroplasticity, and how you as an NLP practitioner can help clients to change their way of thinking.

Unit 3 - Foundation techniques in NLP

In unit three, you’ll delve into the ways in which dissociation can help to change the meaning of a situation, positive psychology and the science of happiness, and tips to boost self-esteem and confidence. Next, you’ll consider time management and productivity, focusing on goal planning and key techniques for productivity. Finally, you’ll look at the importance of good record keeping, and how to keep logs to measure a client’s progress.

Unit 4 - Case study examples and problem-solving techniques

In unit four, you’ll look at some effective techniques for dealing with problems that clients might be facing, such as anxiety. You’ll also study the ‘seven steps to solving problems and finding solutions’. After, you’ll consider two video case studies, the first concerning a stay at home mother seeking to up her confidence, and the second detailing the struggles of a father struggling with commitment issues following a difficult divorce. Your job will be to consider how NLP could help them both.

Unit 5 - Success as an NLP practitioner

Supervision is important in all areas of counselling, and it’s equally important within NLP. In the final unit, you’ll learn why supervision is so crucial, and how it can help you to develop as a practitioner. You’ll also discover why it’s important to form and maintain boundaries with clients. Finally, you’ll move on to the business principles you’ll need to be familiar with in your new profession, from creating a website, to honing your mission statement.

Should I train as a counsellor?

Individuals of any age can benefit from counselling courses and it’s important to note that counselling, when experiencing grief, abuse, anger and problems building and maintaining relationships can have a positive impact.

This makes it absolutely critical that the counselling sector ensures it is well staffed with empathetic, conscientious and skilled professionals who will diligently work to help individuals manage their emotional welfare.

If this sounds like you, training to counsel individuals, couples or groups could be the start of an incredibly inspiring career. A skilled counsellor can become a truly vital support for vulnerable people, enabling them to work through trauma and past issues, making this profession as rewarding as it is valued.

How does counselling benefit children?

One in ten children experience mental illness, and, according to the same report from Mind, the recent pandemic lockdown has led to 68% of young people experiencing lowered mental health.

Counselling can be extremely useful for children and young people, particularly those who don’t have access to a support network at home or feel they cannot talk to their parents about problems they may be facing.

How does counselling benefit adults?

According to the NHS, one in four adults experience mental illness; and the pandemic has worsened things. The mental health charity, Mind, released insight in Feb 2022 stating that “A million UK adults who had problems with their mental health for the first time during the pandemic have not spoken to anyone about it”

A career in counselling adults can see you touching upon topics surrounding the workplace, infertility, past trauma or even addiction. Older adults with very little family or friends can also benefit from counselling to help them better cope with feelings of loneliness or even worthlessness which is unfortunately common amongst older generations.
