International Coaching Certification with New Code NLP (Portugal)

This exciting course taught by John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll stands out on the basis that it incorporates New Code NLP as a primary model for coaching in addition to specialist dynamic coaching formats designed and utilised by the trainers in their own coaching practices.


Coaching is one of the most exciting and rewarding applications of NLP.  It also is one of the most prosperous with NLP trained coaches creating an abundant lifestyle for themselves, whilst stimulating change, creativity and choice for clients.  If you are seeking a coaching based career, or you would like to incorporate coaching into your current activities, look no further as this module has all the qualities to propel you into something very exciting.


New Code NLP underpins this course incorporating models which provide rapid and lasting change in clients.  New Code NLP emerged in NLP in the post Grinder/Bandler years to provide a radical framework for a more efficient form of NLP that utilises high performance states in the change process.  New Code NLP is constantly developing and you are assured of the latest coaching models.  In recent years, in the NLP field, a course that does not include New Code NLP is not considered a course that is in keeping with modern NLP.  As a coach it is important you stay current and ahead of the field.


NLP was the original coaching model with the first model ‘the meta model’ as a tool for directing attention to different aspects in the client’s map.  NLP rapidly grew as a system for enabling anyone to have more choice in life.  Coaching is about creating choice where previously choices were lacking.  In this course you will learn tools to help yourself and your clients experience more choice in life.


A unique element to the International Coaching Certification is the specialist coaching models you will learn from John, Carmen and Michael who have developed these processes from their extensive experience in their own coaching practices.  The Specialist Coaching Models integrate Classic and New Code NLP patterning and will give you a structure for coaching your clients that is different from anything out there in the coaching world.


To attend, you will be certified as an NLP Practitioner (or equivalent) or attended the NLP Academy Core Skills course.  Most attendees now want to embark on a coaching career or will already be working as a coach and want to incorporate New Code NLP and the dynamic coaching framework that John, Carmen and Michael have developed into their practices.


The evaluation day takes place on the 28th May where participants will participate in a series of practical exercises to demonstrate their skill and competency on what was covered during the course.
