NLP is used to enhance and develop successful personal and professional development. It involves the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances that have been achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field of interest.

A key feature of NLP is that we form our unique internal mental maps of the world as a product of the way we filter and perceive information received about our personal environment through our five senses.

This course is for those with special interest in the subject and also for individuals who wish to develop a career in NLP or use its principles in a professional setting.

Level 3 Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Diploma Course Content

Module 1: History, Definition and Scope of Neuro Linguistic Programming

The first module explores the historical background and emergence of NLP and the concepts underpinning its development. The core elements of NLP are discussed, along with the scope and situational contexts that may be appropriate for its use.

Module 2: NLP Models

Students of this module will gain understanding of NLP models and have confidence in the application of these models holistically and contextually. The module also explains the outcome hierarchy and its relation to NLP modalities.

Module 3: Setting the Pace and Communication

A major component of NLP is communication. There are a variety of communication types, such as rapport, pacing and matching, all of which are examined. The way in which these affect the working models within NLP are explored.

Module 4: Values and Belief Systems

This module introduces an examination of various beliefs and values, and considers their relevance to NLP. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is explained; additionally various theories of attachment are described too. Their association with NLP is also addressed.

Module 5: Modalities

This module addresses our learning styles, as well as the subject of modalities in more detail. Their role in NLP is explained.

Module 6: Different Levels Within NLP

In this module, the student will gain an understanding of the generic levels of the therapeutic approach. The relationship between the different NLP levels, the hierarchy of needs and timeframes of achievement will be explained. Meta levels are introduced.

Module 7: Understanding Language

In this module, we explore and contextualise the acquisition of language in relation to its meaning and understanding within personal experience and cognition. The uses of language as a crucial component of communication are examined.

Module 8: Programmes, Principles and Practice

Ethical responsibilities of the NLP practitioner will be addressed in this module. The student will gain the ability to structure a generic NLP programme which may be adapted to suit specific client needs. This module also explores NLP in practice and the importance of the creation and maintenance of good client-therapist relationships.

Module 9: Modelling, Reframing and Change

This module investigates the processes of modelling and reframing, both of which are precursors to the facilitation of positive change. In addition, the scope of these processes is discussed in relation to NLP, including its limitations. The module explains the techniques of reframing, modelling and anchoring, which are key to successful NLP practice.

Module 10: Specific Applications

The final module considers specific applications and situations for NLP, with appropriate techniques described for each scenario. The course material is reviewed holistically, promoting the student’s understanding and knowledge of the core concepts of NLP in theory and in practice.
