NLP Life Coaching Courses

NLP Life Coaching Courses are a unique kind of life coach training. They are different from most

They are based on NLP or Neuro-linguistic Programming.

This makes them quite different from all other life coaching programs.

This blog post will give you some insights into these types of courses and explain:


  • The benefits and advantages of NLP life coaching courses
  • What NLP is – Neuro-linguistic Programming
  • NLP is effective in 5 main areas
  • Tips For Finding the right coaching course for you
  • Why being certified is a good idea
  • About Our NLP Life Coaching Courses
  • An NLP Based Life Coach Certification Curriculum


The Benefits of NLP Life Coaching Courses

NLP Life Coaching Courses are based on NLP, i.e. Neuro-linguistic Programming.

For this reason, they have several important advantages over any other type of life coaching training available.

First, and most importantly, the NLP coaching model will teach you a truly therapeutic coaching process. Because it is based in NLP it contains aspects that are not included in standard coaching processes.

As an example, our NLP life coaching courses ecology, future pacing, special language patterns for facilitating change, and numerous therapeutic interventions.

NLP contains a process called ecology. It’s a way to ensure that any change you make doesn’t cause any problems in some other area of a person’s life. Many coaches out there are doing un-ecological work and they don’t even know it. They create more problems than they solve because they never learned how to do holistic coaching that is ecological.

Secondary Gain
Secondary gain is one of the primary reasons people don’t get what they want. Knowing how to recognize it and deal with it is one of the skills of good NLP Life Coach Certification courses.

Secondary gain is the specific benefit someone gets from a problem. They won’t give up the problem because if they do, they also lose the benefit. An example of secondary gain is the feeling of relaxation someone gets from smoking. If you take away their smoking, you also take away their way to relax. Then they may EAT to relax, and so they have a potentially worse problem than smoking.

Future pacing
Future pacing is a way to install any resource into a person’s timeline, so it is there for them precisely when and where they need it. This makes change permanent and automatic.

Language patterns
NLP is a very sophisticated linguistic model. It contains two separate sub-models: the Meta-Model – which is used for gathering information, and the Milton Model, which is a way to use language to influence and access the subconscious mind.

Therapeutic interventions
NLP is famous for its numerous interventions. There are hundreds of them. They are amazing ways to remove phobias, increase self-esteem, etc.

If you’re new to life coach certification, it’s important that you know that many life coach certification trainings out there today are dumbed down questioning processes with some personal development techniques thrown in. And they call it life coaching.

NLP is a proven model for achieving rapid and lasting change. It’s been around for about 40 years and has stood the test of time. Most other coaching processes don’t even come close to that.


What Is NLP Life Coaching? 

what is NLP?

NLP stands for Neuro-linguistic programming. It has been defined in many ways.

NLP is a way to be at your best more often. NLP is a special set of skills that, once learned, allow anyone to tap more of their inherent potential on a regular basis. NLP is the study and utilization of the structure of human experience.  NLP is the ability to model human excellence with precision and skill.

Most importantly, NLP is the change technology of our time and an essential skill for any life coach.

NLP Life Coaching is any life coaching process that utilizes the NLP model. It is much more therapeutic than other coaching processes.


NLP Life Coaching is Especially Effective in 5 Areas

Personal Growth and Transformation

Themes like values, unification, and internal communication are included, plus numerous ways to stay focused upon and attain your goals.NLP includes specific techniques for accessing your most resourceful emotions and minimizing the destructive effect of negative patterns and cycles.

Therapeutic Applications & Healing
Therapists and healers from many traditions experience more effectiveness with their clients by applying the basic concepts of NLP. NLP is famous for its numerous therapeutic interventions.

These interventions include The Fast Phobia Procedure, The Outcome Frame, Re-imprinting, Changing Personal History, Future Pacing, Belief Change Methods, Identity Expansion, and specific (modeled) strategies for mental and physical health.

Relationships & Communication
People in all walks of life credit NLP for helping them have better relationships.

Specific techniques for increasing rapport, resolving inner and outer conflicts, communicating more effectively, win/win negotiating, and a host of other methods will allow you to experience a new level of satisfaction with family, friends, and colleagues in addition to having better relationships with yourself.

Improving and Developing Skills
From athletic performance to motivation to public relations, NLP includes a number of generative skills that, when learned and developed, result in the ability to develop virtually any capability more quickly.

Achieving Extraordinary (Peak) Performance
Since anything anyone can do, in any field of human endeavor, can be modeled using NLP, an entire range of extraordinary skills may be acquired with uncanny accuracy.

Practitioners of NLP soon find themselves achieving things that were previously difficult, if not seemingly impossible before.


Which is The Right NLP Coaching Course For You?

Here are some things to consider when choosing NLP Life Coaching Courses

  1. LiVE or Online? Both can work. Which one is best for you?
  2. Avoid courses that have just ‘added some NLP’ to make it look better. Instead, get one BASED in NLP.
  3. Look for impressive testimonials from past attendees. Any good course will have several of them.
  4. Look at the curriculum – it will tell you a lot. If they won’t show you their curriculum, don’t take their training.
  5. Look at the experience of the instructor.
  6. Is it right for you? Invest a little more and get a LOT more. Never go cheap as this is a career training and you get what you pay for. On the other hand, some institutes are over-charging and claiming to be the end-all, be-all standard of life coaching. Focus on getting solid skills that you can use in your own life, and for helping others.


Why Being Certified is a Good Idea

One reason to be certified is that in a certification course, you will generally get a more comprehensive set of skills.

Certification courses typically include a more extensive training manual. For example, ours is 100 pages long with quizzes, patterns, specific language to use, and step-by-step interventions.

The most important reason to be certified is to get a truly effective set of coaching skills.

Also, you get a certain amount of credibility when you can say you are a Certified Life Coach.
