  Welcome from the Course Director

Welcome to my course The Complete Professional Life Coaching Practitioner, a course that will give you all the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to gain full accreditation in life coaching and upon course completion set up your own private life coaching practice.

I have included the three most popular life coaching modalities within this course: life coaching, NLP and clinical hypnotherapy. Often these modalities get confused. Life coaching is about coaching lives and NLP and clinical hypnotherapy are strategies for doing just that.

Our courses are ideal for delegates looking for educational and vocational courses providing professional qualifications, a leading edge course syllabus and a level of knowledge, proficiency and competence, unrivalled by any other school or college.

If you are a professional student looking for a market leading course that will enable you to work professionally within the personal and professional development arena as a professional life coach then this course is for you.

All our courses are aimed at the professional student, either full or part time, with between 3 months 24 months dedicated to learning their new craft and entering the industry as a practising professional.

Alternatively you may be an established coach or health practitioner looking to obtain additional skills and qualifications to add to your existing skill set.

We have added a new module into the course of clinical hypnotherapy. The reason we have done this is clinical hypnotherapy is a powerful behavioural change solution and fits very well with NLP as they both work on the unconscious mind of the client. It is common to use both these techniques in the same life coaching session with a client.

Our online Life Coaching Practitioner course has been designed to give you an in-depth and comprehensive learning experience of the tools and strategies of life coaching so you can experience how life coaching can help make positive and rapid changes in your own life as well of the lives of other people.

In addition we share with you the core life coaching, clinical hypnotherapy and NLP skill sets to show you how to apply life coaching in the lives of other people and your coachees.

Our online life coaching course has been specifically designed to take you on a journey of personal development and self-discovery. This course is UNIQUE because, unlike other online courses, this course is fully accredited with ACCPH and will enable you to obtain the relevant insurance in order to set up your own NLP coaching business without any further training.

We have used a powerful combination of audio, video, self-study, personal assignments and an extensive reading list so you can complete our program in your own time at your own pace. You will experience very quickly as you work through the course, how simple, effective, meaningful and lasting change can be.

Our ethos and core beliefs are based upon the fact that every individual can achieve unlimited success in their life, unlocking their full potential and ultimately getting the life they want.

All our courses work on the principle that individual success comes down to the right balance of focus, control, confidence, competence and taking action.

Life coaching and NLP will teach you how to be emotionally well, mentally creative, physically vital, spiritually aware, happy in your relationships, and how to achieve your goals.

WE WILL SHOW YOU HOW!

We have ensured you will get the most from this online program by catering for all learning needs and styles.

I have included everything i know in this course and I'm now sharing all that knowledge with you. I have held nothing back. You will come across an NLP term called modelling. You will learn to realise it means replicating excellence.

By following the teachings this course gives you, you will have the secrets and top tips I have used over the last 20 years as one of the UK's leading life coaches.

I have worked with world-champion sportsmen, West End stars, government advisors, politicians, the CEOs of some of the world's largest companies and the one thing i have found to be true with all of them is that they all run the same programmes, face the same challenges and are coached successfully by the same techniques: the techniques i am sharing with you on this course.

The best advice i can give you at this early stage is to be confident and take your time in getting the most out of the course you can.

You are entering a wonderful industry where you will witness such change in human beings you won't believe it possible.

I have seen the leading West End star, who cried that he would never perform again, get back on stage at the Palladium and give the performance of his life.

i have worked with a girl who had been blind for six months and who medical professionals were unable to help with their non-organic hypothesis. Following a life coaching breakthrough session, she regained 90% of her sight.

I have seen the young chap who couldn't fly, although his job depended on it. Following a single life coaching session, I got him onto a plane. However, this was no ordinary flight – it was filmed live on national television.

Life coaching and NLP prove time and time again nothing is impossible and everything is possible.

For me, the most exciting part of my life coaching and NLP journey was this bit now that you are entering. The beginning. I gave up a job as a director at Barclays Bank to become a life coach and NLP Practitioner and never looked back.

I hope you will love every minute of this wonderful journey and like me never look back.

Will Carling taught me many years ago, success is 90% confidence. I believe he was right. That was my first experience of how we can use the mind to achieve unprecedented and unlimited personal and professional success.

We have used the following symbols to guide you through the programme so that you know what to do and when to do it all in your own time.



To ensure all our courses offer our students the highest level of proficiency, knowledge and competence we make sure we follow the standards laid down within the UK's National Occupational Standards model. From this we have a range of core competencies that are consistent across all our courses and are as follows.

  1. Core knowledge
  2. Clinical application
  3. Continuing Professional Development
  4. Compliance, governance and risk
  5. CAM marketplace

  7. Client satisfaction
  8. Ongoing supervision

Good luck and enjoy the course
