Become a high-level, qualified coach who can work effectively anywhere
Coach – ICI training course is for NLP Practitioners who want to advance their skills to new levels and develop a coaching practice; whether that’s establishing a business of your own, becoming a coach in a forward-thinking organisation, or adding coaching skills to your current role. The Coach Training Programme enables you to incorporate your current NLP skills with expertise and experiences you have accumulated during your lifetime.
Everything, (well, most things 😜) that have bought you to this point, will be useful to your practice as a Coach. The problems and hardships you’ve experienced, mistakes you’ve made and your triumphant successes — all provide you with reference experiences to draw upon in your coaching practice.
You know you have more to offer humanity
You want to help others develop their potential and access their inner strengths, gifts and talents. You’d like to help people change their lives for the better.
You’ve seen and heard the difference NLP makes to your own and others’ lives. And even if you are using NLP skills every day, there might be a tendency to focus on the things you’ve personally found most useful, or those that are most practical in your work. But…
You’ll never have a client walk in and say, “I want you to do a SWISH with me”.
Or “I want you to use how I code time to release an unwanted emotion.”
They just turn up with whatever problem they have, and it’s your job to decide what the real problem is. Remember the problem is never the real problem, it’s how they’re thinking about the problem that’s the problem. (Wow! That’s a lot of problems! 😜)
Don’t fall into the trap of believing what your client is telling you.
And by ‘client’ I mean whoever it is that you’re trying to help. The client might be a work colleague, a child, a friend, a member of your team or an actual client or patient.
You can fall into a comfort zone
If you continue just doing what you’ve been doing, it’s likely your coaching will become stale. Then become repetitious. Then boring and tedious.
You’ll lose your passion
Remember, one of the critical aspects of NLP is flexibility. If you’re using a limited toolbox of skills, you may not be as flexible and effective in your NLP practice as you’d like to be. And effectiveness – being able to effect change – is what builds your confidence and gives you that passion and energy.
Developing Flexibility And Expertise In NLP Is Like Dancing A Tango
When you learn to Tango, there are specific steps and moves you have to master, much like the exercises on NLP Practitioner training. After you’ve learnt the basics, you’ll need a partner (client) to get ready for the dance floor. This is when you start to put your dancing skills to the test. You soon discover how good you are because your partner will give you immediate feedback — especially if you step on their toes!
Tango experts will tell you that you have to make an emotional connection with your partner and maintain that connection for the entire dance. Negative or intrusive thoughts block the emotional energy, which affects the constant flow of the dance. Your NLP trainer (me!) will tell you the same thing about working with a client.
There’s a massive difference between just dancing the Tango and the expertise that comes with experience. Every hand and finger gesture, every expression and the whole attitude of the Tango are what give this dance its emotional and passionate intensity, creativity and innovation.
The dancers are lost in the dance
They get lost in the ebb and flow of the music, allowing the moment to sweep them away. How do they find and maintain that point of connection and achieve this fluidity and flexibility?
Through practice (But you already knew that didn’t you?)
Tango dancers are not born, they are made. And Tango, it is said, is not just a dance. It is a way of life.
You Achieve Fluidity, Connection And Flexibility In NLP In The Same Way
No, not by dancing the Tango — by practising NLP! By using your skills in combination with each other, watching, listening and noticing what’s happening with your client, you learn to ‘dance’ with them, creating change at a profound level. Every day and every client is new and different — providing an opportunity to create an innovative new dance.
Can you imagine how quickly your coaching expertise will increase using this method?
And sure, it’s pretty intensive and not for the faint-hearted. But I bet a bit of a challenge has never scared you off! Especially when all the feedback you receive is given with such love, compassion and care. And let’s face it, just about everything you’ve achieved has involved moving through any current perceived barriers — that’s how we grow and develop.
You’ll be involved in lots and lots of coaching practice. Lots.And.Lots! This will include roles as coach, client and observer, learning from all three perspectives. You’ll learn to incorporate different NLP techniques and blend them seamlessly into your coaching sessions.
You’ll receive ongoing feedback from the trainer and the other participants throughout the course, and you’ll also learn by giving feedback to others. This means you’ll graduate feeling completely confident and competent in your role and your abilities. The three months between the in-class training blocks gives you the opportunity to practice, integrate and add to your skills. In this time you’ll also be participating in the on-line business aspects of the course and completing some of the assignments. You’ll have until December 18th 2020 to complete all the requirements.

- Review your learnings as a coach and client from these experiences and provide a written report for discussion.
- When you’ve completed your 3 coaching sessions with a client you’ll undertake a supervision session with me. (This is an additional cost).
Most of the business aspects of coaching will be trained via live online sessions and completed at your own pace with feedback and suggestions given by the trainer throughout.
