The practitioner is a fifteen-day programme. This is designed around 130 hours of practice and integration. This can be face to face, online or blended learning.


Successful completion of the course is based on a continuous assessment process. Your progress will be evaluated on your ability to engage with others, to take on new knowledge and to demonstrate how you integrate this into your current practise. Included in the package will be some pre course documentation and work, daily reflections and a seen assessment


The cost of the course is £1400 For the fifteen day programme


The way in which we construct the fifteen days is flexible, to meet your needs. We can run this in one straight ‘block’, with weekend breaks, divided into five-day sections with gaps in teaching blocks, or into weekends. So long as you cover the 130 required hours, the way of getting these is negotiable


On successful completion of the course, you'll receive your official INLPTA certification. All paperwork and certificates are covered by the fee that you pay.  This qualification can contribute to your continuing professional development requirements, and is recognised as being the best quality training that can be obtained in NLP


If you have undertaken the diploma programme, not only will we offset the cost of the diploma from the practitioner, but you will also not need to undertake the first four days of the programme, unless, of course, you want to refresh or update your fundamental skills. You can re-attend the diploma as many times as you wish, free of charge. This also applies when you have successfully completed the practitioner.  It is free at any time in order for you to refresh your skills.





We offer regular, free updates online via the ‘meet up’ app.  You can refresh your skills, practice techniques and meet up with a growing community of people with the same passion for NLP as you!  A great opportunity for upskilling yourself and networking
