In my last post I mentioned NLP as a successful tool for customer service and improving staff relations.
We received many calls and emails, asking for more info on NLP as some people hadn’t even heard of it. What was really surprising, those that had heard of it were either misinformed or didn’t understand the differences in the products, counselling and courses available.
So in this post I’m going to hopefully increase the information available and help people make an educated decision about how they spend their money.
The first thing I would say to anyone looking into trying NLP, please think of the route you are about to take as there is a big difference between taking a NLP courses and NLP counselling.
NLP isn’t cheap, please spend your money wisely.
I truly believe that the majority of people enquiring about NLP courses are looking to “fix” problems in their own lives. For example to stop smoking, lose weight or deal with phobias. They look at a practitioners course as a “one stop shop”, a quick fix in one week, when really all they need is a few sessions with a well trained counsellor.
Would you go to college to be a mechanic when all you really need is a puncture fixed?
A NLP practitioners course is very intense, usually run over 7 days, with a lot of information to be retained. There is little or no time for tutors to spend with individuals, counselling on a one to one basis. This could leave you greatly out of pocket for a course that wasn’t really fit for your purpose.
Practitioners courses can cost you anything from hundreds to thousands of pounds depending on the duration and qualifications on offer. The course should give you the tools and information needed to set up a NLP business or practice offering counselling sessions to the general public.
Compare that with the cost of “one to one” sessions with an experienced counsellor, which may be as little as £40-£60 per hour.
With all that in mind, we put together a NLP Taster Day .
During the course we covered all the frequently asked questions including:
– What is NLP
– History of NLP
– Pillars of NLP
– Practical applications of NLP
– Exercises for “Goal Setting”, “Limiting Beliefs” and “Circle of Excellence”
– Progressing on your NLP journey and the courses that are available.
The first NLP Taster day was well attended and the feed back was amazing.
Delegates were given the chance to buy copies of “Understanding Quantum Thinking – second edition” by Mark Dawes.
For those that don’t know Mark, he is a world renowned author on NLP and his website is well worth a look (www.markdawes.com).
Mark kindly donated copies of his book to raise money for Ted Foulger and the charity “Bike Tours for the Wounded”.
