“I thought I’d learned a lot on Core Skills – it’s not until you do Practitioner 2 that you realise how much more there is to know. I enjoyed Part 2 even more than Core Skills because so many of the elements of NLP started to coalesce and potential uses for the skills become much clearer.”  Caroline Bennett, coach

How you learn on Practitioner 2

In Practitioner 2 we cover a large range of subjects. We do this in depth, yet in a way which makes them easy to learn.

There are around 60 main topics in the programme and each generally follows a learning cycle which includes a:

  1. Brief overview of the topic
  2. Live demonstration of the topic in action
  3. Hands-on practical session with a colleague - which often includes feedback from the trainer
  4. Main-group discussion of your practical session to look at practical applications for what you have learned
  5. Later opportunity to revisit the topic in your morning or evening coaching groups

We also continually look at how the topics connect with one another - so you get to revisit the key topics a number of times to wire-in your skill.

This is a dynamic and interactive course which usually gets re-designed as we progress through course to suit the personality of the group - and to ensure we cover the major topics and concepts thoroughly.  In the event that any topics on this list cannot be actively covered we will provide information handouts on the subject.
