NLP Training FAQ
Are you associated with any particular NLP lineage or organization?
No. In the past several decades, NLP training has become fractionalized and various training organizations have allied themselves with various NLP training schools and NLP instructors in various geographic regions. The International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy (ICBCH) has been offering hypnotherapy training and certification for many years, independent of other organizations. Our goal is to create practitioners with independent values not allied with any particular brand of hypnosis or NLP.
You use NLP and life coaching textbooks by well-known authors. Have they endorsed your program?
No, and we have not sought the endorsement of any individuals, in order to maintain our independence. The texts we use in our NLP and life coach training were selected because they are excellent resources for learning, not because of any affiliation with the author or publisher. We purchase the books for our courses from traditional textbook dealers.
Do I need hypnosis certification or training before starting this course?
No. This course presumes you have no previous hypnosis knowledge, yet those with hypnosis training will find it equally of value. NLP is a method of practical applications for impacting the subconscious mind. The founders NLP studied the work of renowned hypnotherapists and counselors, incorporating the most effective methods of subconscious communication into the study of NLP, and these ideas will be taught in this course.
Will I be able to hypnotize people when I complete this course?
Trance is a natural phenomena and NLP teaches how to use natural trance states to learn, problem-solve and impact lifelong patterns of behavior. These methods will be taught in this class, so yes, you will be able to use conversational hypnosis and trancework skills. However, for those who wish to represent themselves as a professional hypnotist and focus solely on the use of hypnotherapy, we recommend more comprehensive training on the subject via our ICBCH basic Hypnosis Certification program.
Do you offer a Master Practitioner NLP course?
Our course is designed for those who want to practice NLP in professional settings. Other programs have created a “level” system of learning, in many cases simply to increase the fees prospective students pay.
We have been in the continuing education business since 1994, and our NLP courses are within the same price range as our other continuing education courses for practicing professionals. We feel no need to create a “level” system for learning – you are designated as a Professional NLP Practitioner and Life Coach, and you will receive a professional NLP and Life Coaching certificate. Although we encourage further learning, seminars and training, you will find our course has been designed to provide the foundational and advanced NLP skills successful therapists actually use.
I’ll really become BOTH a Life Coach and an NLP Practitioner once I complete your home study course?
Yes, upon completion of the coursework and returning the comprehensive Evaluation of Learning Quiz, you will designated by the ICBCH as a “Certified Professional NLP Practitioner (CPNLP)” and as a “Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC).” You may use either one or both of the designations, as you choose.
Who is eligible for the Continuing Education Credits (CEUs)?
Through PeachTree Professional Education, Inc, this course offers 30 CEU credit hours for licensed or state certified mental health professionals – NBCC, NAADAC, social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, chemical dependency counselors, psychologists and nurses in most US states.
