    Hi everyone :)
    I was thinking about doing a course in NLP. It's a relatively new field to me. I use some of the techniques - anchoring, temporal tap, and eye positions already - learned from another course. I just don't really know what to expect from a course, and whether it would be right for me.

    I absolutely love EFT, and in particular the dialoging that must take place in a session, similarly with the emotional work in a kinesiology session.

    If I include a link here, would some of you be able to have a look at the summary and let me know if this is reasonable? (or equally if it sounds like trash!!) The NLP.ie group seem to own NLP workshops in Ireland, but that doesn't mean they're going to be the best!

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hello Savid,

    Owen and Brian are two of the finest NLP trainers around. Although I've not done a Prac with them, I have met them as delegates/assistants at other trainings I've done and I've used/read their products.

    I can confidently say this will be a great Prac training (if they employ other trainers they're only going to be excellent ones).

    Oh and I'm not an affiliate of theirs or anything :) I am also a Society of NLP trainer so I know where they're coming from and where they'll take you.

    Go for it!

    Be well,
    Ian

    NLP Trainings

    There are two distinct tracks to training in NLP. The fast track and the slow track.
    Fast track trainings tend to to be Society of NLP Bandler biased, slow tracks are the others.

    Depending upon your style of learning some people prefer fast and some people like slow.

    If you are serious about attending a training I would try to get along to a practice group run by the people you are considering training with. If you like the people you meet their style and what you find then follow your instincts !!!

    This course seems to be only 6 days long so definitely "fast track". I myself am biased in favour of longer training, having undertaken it myself (and continuing to train for 13 years since - there is enough to learn!) - but it does depend on how much you want to learn and what you wish to do with it later.

    If you wanted to join, say, The Professional Guild of NLP, they will not accept practitioners who haven't done a full 20 day / 120 hours (of face-to-face teaching) practitioner course, same goes for the Neurolinguistic Psychotherapy & Counselling Association, and even the much more laid back ANLP nowadays requires at least 50 hours face-to-face training to join at professional level of membership.

    Of course there is value in shorter courses as well, and clearly the trainers of the programme in Ireland seem to have very good reputation, but bear in mind that you generally get what you pay for.

    Of course, if they're good at NLP then you'll have no choice but to resonate with them, because they will have turned it around so that they are resonating with you. The power of NLP! hehe! ;)

    For me, the longer the courses, the better. I really enjoyed every minute of mine. I was totally wiped out, but emerged so much more self-aware.
