Maybe you already hold an NLP qualification but you have decided you want to work with children or perhaps you want to use NLP with your own children but the course you went on was more specific to the workplace. By becoming an NLP Kids Practitioner you can use it to run your own business and treat children and teenagers, you can offer help to parents and teachers and you can of course use it with your own children.
This course not only covers all the principles of NLP but through weekly homework you will be applying the techniques on yourself and your children. There is a lot of reading and the books you need are supplied but you will almost certainly find particular issues more interesting than others and want to read further and in more depth.
Neuro Linguistic Programming is a way of life, a new way of thinking that at first may be a bit ‘clunky’ but as you develop the skills and use them daily you will soon do it without realising. The changes will become automatic and subconscious as you make the transition from unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence. You have probably already been applying NLP in your life so the concepts won’t be new but by going over them with fresh eyes and ears as a parent, foster carer, teacher or social worker you will find new applications and different ways of using them.
There are many NLP courses and many offer you the world, they promise to make you wealthy or slim, successful, powerful and so on. My courses don’t promise this.
Neuro is how we think. This is based on our experiences of life, our upbringing, culture, age and those we’ve grown up with. Many people think that this can’t be changed but let me assure you that it can be. Not only that. It will be. As you start to question some of the beliefs you hold and challenge them you will find yourself replacing them with a new and grown up way of thinking that will give you permission to do some of those things you thought you couldn’t do before. You’ll still be YOU so don’t worry that you’ll lose the best bits. It’s those limiting beliefs that we’ll work on; the beliefs that hold you back from being the parent you want to be.
Linguistic is how we talk. It’s the words and phrases we use to communicate. It’s also that irritating little inner voice that tells us where’s getting it all wrong. The words we use matter. They mean something. They reflect the thinking behind them so we need to ensure that we communicate what we want to communicate and nothing else.
Programming is the results. These are the habits and patterns we’ve formed and the things we keep doing even when we know they don’t work. When you learn about NLP you will start to recognise those patterns and find out how to change them so they are more resourceful and get you the results you want.
The NLP Kids Practitioner course that I run is on Skype and the next one starts in September 2013. The course costs £550 or its equivalent in your currency and you can pay in installments if you want. This cost includes the books I recommend. The sessions are weekly and there will be homework. The homework is not so much a written test but it is instead an opportunity for you to explain how you have incorporated that bit of learning into your life and your parenting. I shall be available on Skype to help with any questions or issues you have.
