What is an NLP Practitioner?

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) could be defined as ‘the psychology of excellence and the science of change’.

An NLP Practitioner could be described as ‘an agent for change’.

The principles of NLP can be used at different levels to:

  • Develop yourself (Personal)
  • Help develop others (Interpersonal)
  • Realign businesses (Organisational)

NLP was founded originally to model excellence. By establishing exactly how someone achieves something, excellence can be ‘installed’ and repeated again and again. From this starting point, over the last thirty years, an array of processes, concepts and techniques have been developed to enable you to:

  • become more resourceful in managing attitudes, thoughts, emotions, behaviours and beliefs
  • relate to others easily and effortlessly,
  • understand how language and its use has a direct impact on your state, your brain and your success in communicating with others.

In addition to all this, as an NLP practitioner, you will learn techniques designed to help you develop your own skills and help others develop theirs. The principles will be introduced conversationally and with activities throughout the course allowing participants to learn on many levels consciously and unconsciously.

Who are these courses for?

For you and anyone like you who wants to work effectively with other people.

What People have said after attending GWiz NLP courses…

I had a great week and look forward eagerly to working with you both again.

Thank you for everything, I went to my friend’s funeral today and the work we had done really helped me through with this,
framing it in a beautiful way and making the less than easy fact more acceptable, so a really big thanks.

It was a fantastic week, thank you both for making it such fun to learn and explore new things. I was on a real high last night
and to add to it, did a SWISH technique on a client!!!

Thank You for a fantastic 9 days!!! I am really glad that I went ahead, and got over the dog phobia!

Still assimilating the most amazing 9 days of my life and really excited about where the journey will take me.

Still assimilating the most amazing 9 days of my life and really excited about where the journey will take me.

The programme has created a real shift in me, and I’m finding it so exciting being able to use my learning to help others – I’m having some real ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ moments!

I’m noticing so much now as I’m speaking to others – their language patterns, sensory information.

I’ve also reached new levels of self-awareness that I never felt possible.
I’m really looking forward to refining my new skills and finding exciting new applications for them.

Many thanks for a wonderful experience over the past 9 days.
It’s been a brilliant journey for me – definitely a road worth travelling.
