What is NLP?
NLP is an extraordinary and cutting-edge approach to human communication and the development of excellence. This remarkable set of tools is based on the amazing discovery that in changing how you think can change what you think - and in changing how and what you think, you can dramatically transform the results you create in your life.
NLP can assist you to develop and maintain a high level of motivation for achieving your goals, and can help convert barriers and obstacles into doorways to success. NLP can be used to learn the characteristics of top achievers and to create a blueprint for unlimited success.
Through the simple yet profound techniques that make NLP so powerful, you can eliminate unwanted habits, transform negative emotions into positive feelings, improve the way you see yourself, enhance your self-esteem and become the person you want to be.
Everything you experience is created twice - first in your mind and then in reality. The experiences you create are representative of your internal state, the way you think and the feeling your thoughts generate. When you have the tools to change your internal state, you will find that your external reality will change to match the new internal state. It's pretty simple, and quite astounding.

How do our students describe NLP?
We would like to offer you the following definitions of NLP from our students to give you an even better understanding of how you'll be able to use your new skills. Also, have a look at what some of our students say about the NLP Worldwide training programs.
NLP is the roadmap to how you think and react to the world around you as well as being able to better interpret how others are going to react and feel. It breaks the emotions into parts that can be rebalanced to increase performance if the desired outcome is wanted.
I will use NLP both on a personal and business level which seem to cross over a lot for me. Personally, it will help me to understand why I do things in a certain way so therefore I can better react or not, to what others may say or do, and it will enable me to develop relationships on a deeper level because I will be able to understand why someone reacts or does things in a certain fashion.
NLP is the language used (both verbally and non-verbally) to communicate with others and myself that creates transformations and shifts in our thinking, behaviours and actions in daily living. It is a powerful tool, a way of life that through daily practice/use takes you to any level you want by tapping into the unconscious mind.
NLP is a kit containing tools that will improve your life. The tools can be used individually or for maximum effect, combined in a myriad of way to achieve the best possible results.
My primary intention is to use these skills for myself and those around me in achieving desired outcomes. Also, I will guide others as to how they can achieve excellence through the facets of their life.
NLP is freeing the unconscious mind from the viruses, glitches and malfunctioning areas in the same way that a computer technician would work on your computer so it works smoothly, effortlessly and so you have access to all of its functions.
NLP provides the tools and techniques to bring about outcomes of excellence in states and behaviour using integrated and holistic approaches whereby the unconscious and conscious minds connect on many levels for the greater good of self and other.
I will be using NLP for my own personal development using a variety of techniques to change beliefs, set (and collapse) anchors, integrate parts, achieve outcomes, change from present state to desired state, and be aware that my thoughts create my behaviour. I also will help facilitate the best possible outcomes for my son (7 years) by using the techniques with him. And, I will incorporate NLP in my future career opportunities.
How do I learn more about NLP?
NLP is taught in a number of ways. You can read a book about NLP, watch NLP videos or even listen to tapes or CD's (and we do highly recommend Laureli & Heidi's book 30 Days to NLP). However, these ways of learning NLP can be equated to learning how to drive via a book, video or CD - it doesn't always work very well. These are great ways to get a good basis of understanding however, if you want to know more about NLP we highly recommend a workshop or course. If you really want to learn to use the skills of NLP in your Personal or Professional lives or you want to use the skills as an NLP Coach or Therapist we suggest starting with the NLP Level 1 training, NLP Practitioner Certification.
The NLP Certification Track is the track most of our students use for Personal Development, Coaching/Therapeutic tools and Business skills. This track includes the following courses:
- Level 1: NLP Practitioner Certification (8 days)
- Level 2: NLP Master Practitioner Certification (9 days)
- Level 3: NLP Trainer Certification (14 days)
- NLP Coaching Foundations (3 days)
Workshops and Webinars which can span anywhere from a few hours to two days are a good way to get a good grasp of some of the concepts of NLP. However, if you want to learn the skills and techniques of NLP to apply in your life we highly recommend an NLP Certification course. The Worldwide Institutes of NLP teach NLP Level 1 in an accelerated 8 day format (see NLP FAQ for more information).
