Why do I have to re-take your courses if I already took NLP somewhere else?
For two reasons; Because we are seeking accreditation for our coursework we need to ensure our students are competent. And, we can't verify your competency of NLP with out observing your ability and competence to do the tasks we ask you to do. Our students are being observed for competence continually throughout each course from the moment they start taking our courses. This type of accreditation is not available through other NLP training institutions and we have no way of verifying what you have learned, how it was integrated into your being, and if you have competence in what we are teaching other than observing and testing you throughout our entire program.
If I learned NLP from somewhere else can I attend your courses?
Yes, you can attend but you have to start from the beginning. Because we are seeking accreditation for our coursework and we can’t verify your competency of NLP we can't grant credit for prior NLP training. Our students are being observed for competence throughout each course from the moment they start taking our courses. This type of accreditation is not available through other NLP training institutions and we have no way of verifying what you learned, how it was integrated into your being, and if you have competence in what we are teaching other than observing and testing you through our entire program.
How are your sessions different?
Other NLP practitioners mix NLP with coaching, reiki, massage, or tapping because they were taught formulas not how to work with a client. Most of the sessions run a 50 minute hour or less. And, the client is asked to come back again and again and again while the practitioner looks up each formula and the client may or may not get complete resolution due to the amount of processing the practitioner was able to do while they were trying to memorize and regurgitate 3 hours to 12 days of material.
TNLP sessions run until the client has accomplished their goals. The ability of the practitioner to hold lengthy, productive sessions is based on the practitioner’s ability to be with the client, be with the issues of the client and to what depth the practitioner processed while they learned the NLP curriculum.

What do I get by attending your school of change?One of the most comprehensive NLP educations available. A certificate of competency is available at each level for making it through each exam phase. If you go through the first 3 courses and pass the competency exams for NLP you will be a certified Master NLP Practitioner. Note that our basic practitioner course (NLP1) will provide you with more abilities (although you may not have all the NLP knowledge) than what is available from other NLP centre’s Master Practitioner programs. If you complete the 3 x TNLP courses and pass their competency exams you will obtain the practicum hour experience and knowledge base for completing the Therapeutic NLP Professional certificate which provides you the ability to challenge the Canadian Professional Counseling Association exam, the practicum requirements and qualifies you for the Registered Professional Counsellor designation.

Can't I learn NLP from a book?
Well yes and no. Only 8-10% of the information you require to learn how to successfully practice NLP is transferred through words and the remainder of the 90-2% is being made up by your brain as it is filling in the gaps in comparing the new infomration with stuff you already know. That is what is available to you when you only partake in book learning of NLP. NLP is completely unlike any learning you will have had previously. It is whole and complete and uniquely distinct from anything else you have ever experienced. You make the choice... either you can be exposed to 8-10% of the information which, I guarantee you’ve come across in some other context before or you can have a near perfect learning of the material and know you have the competence to practice it. The choice is yours. I know in my own experience, a book or 12 of them, wasn’t enough. But maybe, learning 8-10% of it with your brain filling in the gaps is good enough for you. Some NLP is better than no NLP at all.
Will I be like Anthony/Tony Robbins?
I hope you will be like you. If you want to be like Tony, you might want to learn NLP from him, not me. NLP styles of teachers tend to travel to their students. So if you have a teacher that’s arrogant the student gets that arrogance. Whom ever you choose to learn from, make sure it is someone you feel comfortable with. If you are not comfortable with them, you will learn less from them and you will be processed less by the information you learn and experience from them.
Why can’t/don’t you offer this course on line?
I did the research and experimented with the technologies out there. The problem is, there is no substitution for learning NLP face-to-face. And if I’m putting my name behind it and guaranteeing your results for what I’m offering, then currently the technology is no where near where it needs to be to capture the information you need for learning and be coming competent in this material.
