Why NLP, Hypnotherapy and Coaching in one course?
The idea at the heart of our NLP courses, Hypnotherapy courses and Coaching courses is that to be a fully competent NLP Practitioner/Master Practitioner, Hypnotherapist and Coach you need to understand the core of all three fields.
At the centre of modern (non-script driven) hypnotherapy is the work of hypnotherapist and psychiatrist Dr. Milton H. Erickson. At the core of Neuro-linguistic-programming is his work together with the work of other effective models of therapy. Coaching is primarily derived from NLP & other areas of positive psychology.
It is therefore essential to understand how, where & when to use these skills in a natural and fluid way so as to be a skilful and competent practitioner, therapist and coach.
“I chose this course because I felt that the content was not only thorough, including a broad range of techniques that could be applied with clients, but also because it included the latest research, and I was not disappointed. Having just completed three years of academic study, Matthew’s approach at Motivation Training was like a breath of fresh air. The course is taught with a mixture of lectures, use of multi-media, theory and practice, thus providing a great balance in a relaxing environment. Whilst it was an intensive course, I was amazed at how quickly I was able to learn and put the skills into practice – this was with thanks to Matthew’s unique teaching skills which made learning enjoyable and fun. This is an inspirational course, taught by an inspirational teacher, who has provided me with the knowledge and confidence to create a firm grounding for my own practice. I’m looking forward to taking all these skills and knowledge out into the real world, and applying the techniques to help people improve their lives. This is the start of a new journey for me, and I have Matthew to thank for helping me to change my life and making the future that I desire obtainable”. Linda Waite BSc Psyc (Hons) Dip.C.Hyp/NLP
