NLP Practitioner course review
I spent several weeks researching different NLP accredited providers and finally settled on Excellence Assured. This is because they seemed to understand the day to day reality and meaning of the subject matter, providing a true learning journey underpinned by multi-channel options that could be completed at my own pace.
Other than reading through the initial course schedule and gaining an understanding of the modules I needed to complete, realistically, I had no set preconceptions of what to expect.
However whilst working through the NLP practitioner course I was surprised to find how much NLP has opened my mind to thinking more deeply than I ever thought possible.
To explain; Anthony’s support and encouragement, coupled with that of sound scaffolding of each comprehensive module, has created a very personal and transformational learning journey. This had been on both the theoretical and practical meaning of NLP language, concepts and techniques.
Indeed, there have been many milestones and checkpoints along the way and obstacles to my own personal self-development that I had to first identify and then address. Each module was structured in such a way as to ensure that teachings were coming from a range of angles; this further facilitated, stimulated and opened my mind, rendering my participation and enactment of precisely the intentional learning I believe that we all strive to realise.
This wasn’t an easy ask, each exercise and practice was inevitably modelled around my own experiences and those close to me. Meeting and then confronting challenges meant we had to deal with difficult circumstances, taking us out of our comfort zones where it was necessary for us to develop and think in new ways.
The course has made me think about the questions we really need to ask ourselves and others and it has challenged me by exposing issues that need to be resolved whilst helping me to reframe and make sense of many of my own experiences.
I have learned so much about myself and others, the hows and whys I relate to others in all my different guises and reminded me of the importance of repetition, cues and practicing in more creative ways.
NLP thinking has also helped me to make sense of the effects of Covid-19 that could leave one with feelings of hopelessness. Practicing NLP has better enabled me to make sense of the senseless, turning profound negatives into positives for myself and others.
The course has covered a huge range of subjects further sparking my interest with wide ranging and thought-provoking content but has also served as a reminder of how thoughtful and containing a course written and run by experienced NLP trainers who have a true passion about their subject can be. Anthony has played an important part in terms of his knowledge, support, encouragement and enthusiasm.
Finally, on reflection I feel reassured and even humbled by my increased understanding of the unconscious mind; a lifetime of memories, experiences, feelings and, beliefs, that constantly exert their influence on our everyday thinking and behaviours.
I have enjoyed and learnt so much from the breadth of materials without feeling overwhelmed and this course has reaffirmed my decision to enrol for the next stage of training….. I’m looking forward to continuing learning from all perspectives.
