"My goal is to provide the most comprehensive, thorough and enjoyable Hypnotherapy Training and NLP Training available in the UK. Training that is realistically priced, fully comprehensive and with free ongoing supervision and strategies for building your own business and professional career"
Matthew A. Ferguson.

This course is an Integrated training in all the 3 skills of Hypnotherpy, NLP and NLP Life Coaching.

The idea at the heart of this course is that to be a fully competent NLP Practitioner/Master Practitioner, Hypnotherapist and NLP Life Coach you need to understand the core of all three skills.

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. NLP Life 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 nlp life coach. 

You will benefit from a complete training without the need to attend separate courses in hypnotherapy or courses in NLP.

“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
