NLP Coach or Therapist Training
If you are looking to become a Coach or Therapist, or looking to add a modality to your current practice, NLP is an excellent choice.
NLP has an Outcome Solution focus – meaning that instead of focusing on a problem, we identify how to find ways to help clients achieve their desired outcome and we apply the tools of NLP to build resources and clear interferences using the unconscious mind.
With our NLP Coaching Certification program it is our intention to provide a comprehensive program with hands on skills, coaching practice, practical demonstrations and rigorous assessment criteria to help you develop into an exceptional NLP Coach or Therapist.
The following courses and programs are required for the attainment of Certified NLP Coach:
- Level 1 – NLP Practitioner Certification (in person)
- Level 2 – NLP Master Practitioner Certification (in person)
- NLP Coaching Foundations (in person or online)
- NLP Coach Building Blocks (online)
- 10 hours of Coaching Supervision
This equates to 20 days of training plus the Coach Building Blocks and Supervision/Mentoring. We currently equate this to a total of 275 hours, which will take approximately 8-14 months to complete but may take longer depending on your time commitments to the program.
The Worldwide Institutes of NLP subscribes to the Code of Conduct, core competencies and coaching standards set by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Students can apply for membership of the ICF via the portfolio method when they graduate.

During a Supervision session you will work either one-on-one or in a group situation with a qualified NLP Supervisor. You will confidentially discuss your clients, what NLP tools you are using and identify the various patterns that your client is presenting. Additionally, your Supervisor can help you with business strategies, marketing and self-management.
Our Supervision takes place in person, on the phone and online – both for one-on-one or in group situations. The cost of Supervision ranges from $80-220 per hour depending on the type of supervision.
