International Coach Federation Accredited Coach Training Program

Coach Certification

Since 1994 The Worldwide Institutes of NLP have been liberating human potential through NLP & Coach Certification Training. Now you can become an accredited coach in 6-12 months.

If You are a coach, you must learn
Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neuro Linguistic Programming as a modality for Coaching bridges the gap between traditional therapy (problem focused) and traditional coaching (solution focused) and puts the focus on the client.

In todays world, need something that helps you stand out from other coaches – and that something, is Neuro Linguistic Programming.

NLP Techniques

NLP isn't talk based coaching. You will learn specific NLP strategies to help your clients change, enhance and remove patterns of emotions, behaviours, and beliefs. Learn NLP techniques like timeline, parts integration, swish pattern, anchoring and more to help move your clients forward toward their desired state.

Pattern Detection

The driving force behind all human behaviour are the unconscious patterns that drive us. NLP will train you to identify and understand these patterns. From there you will know how to use the NLP processes to enhance what is working, change what is not, and create new. and better serving patterns.

Communication Tools

Originally NLP was modelled for the communication power of understanding an other persons model of the world and building unconscious rapport in order to understand and be better understood. These skills will serve you greatly in all aspects of your life: with clients, at home, in business, and in play.

Competency | Confidence | Community

These are the pillars that our NLP Coach Certification is built around. We teach you the skills, help you to build your coaching muscle, and have a great tribe of like minded individuals to continue to learn with and from. 

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a conversational process in which resources and capabilities are developed and represents a relationship of cooperation that involves an alliance in the work of empowering a client. Coaching is tailored to the client and their needs, where the coach guides and supports the client in achieving their goals, desires and intentions. This may through life coaching, health coaching, wellness coaching, business coaching, or any other niche coaching you desire. Ultimately, coaching enables the client to overcome personal barriers and boundaries, leading them to the state to use their best abilities in a targeted way, and supports them to fulfill their tasks within the team, family, company in the best possible way.

With NLP, coaching is a process focused on the goal and the solution and the goal of the coach is to support the client in developing skills and abilities so that the client finds the best solution, formulates personal and professional goals, remains focused on the necessary actions for their realisation and thus achieves success in personal, family, partner or business plan.

Why Choose NLP as a Coaching Modality?

Over the years, many coaches have come to learn NLP with us only to wonder why they didn’t start with this modality in the first place. Adding NLP into your toolbox as a Coach is imperative, which is why we fortify your coaching skills with the heartiness of NLP as a base for everything you do.

 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.
The tools and methodologies of NLP to assist clients in both a therapeutic and coaching aspect. Because NLP is a very outcome specific coaching tool that encompass skills for identifying goals, creating motivation, clearing barriers for success and creating a clear pathway, you can help a client get to their desired state or goal quicker and more efficiently than more traditional methods.

Thanks for Visiting NLP Worldwide

Since 1998 I’ve been involved in NLP and I started my Coaching Business in 2000. Over the past 22+ years I have fallen in love with this helping profession. Who wouldn’t love having such great tools to help your clients find out who they are and why they are alive; help them to tap into their unconscious mind and clear limiting beliefs, behaviours and blocks that hold them back; help them to embrace who they are, what they want and help them find their passions and help them live their truth. 

After over 13,000 hours of coaching individuals, teams, couples, families, and organisations two things are clear to me: 1) no one person is the same as anyone else, and 2) we are all striving to be seen, heard, and felt in a way that makes us feel whole and complete. With an education in clinical psychology, the modality that has helped me to help the most people is NLP. It is very common-sense driven with the clients desired outcome in mind. 

It would be my pleasure to share more about the modality of NLP and Coaching, to answer your questions, and hopefully help you to help others! I invite you to explore the website, download our many resources, grab our NLP Coach Training Prospectus and even schedule a call with myself or a teammate.

I hope to meet you soon!

A Word from Our Students

Our students become raving fans because of the experience level of our trainers, the real-world application they learn, and the skills they take away. But don’t take our word for it.

Serene Nah

Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer, ICF Associate Certified Coach

The coach training solidified my learning into the muscle. With the coach specific training we broke the skills down even more. I thought I had a great idea of how to coach until this training – and I got the insight and practice to really have it all come together. Being able to integrate it together, I feel so much more confident to work with NLP with clients. The feedback I got from Dr. Heidi helped me tremendously to grow. Being able to ask questions, break down what I was doing really made a difference for me as a coach. I think I’ve grown tremendously as a coach – it was toward the end of the full coach certification that I really feel that I got it, and I got it at a “Heidi approved level”. I know I can truly get my clients to where they want to be!


Adam Rice

Coach, Counsellor, Consultant, and Trainer

I started my NLP training in 2016 and have completed the full training up to and including NLP Trainers. It’s been an amazing journey. I wanted to learn NLP because I have a colleague who learned NLP and she helped me to view my past in a new way and from then on I wanted to know more, it gave me instant change. I had a look around at a few training companies, the best reputation came from NLP Worldwide, Laureli and Heidi have so much experience and I wanted to model my skills on people who are the best at what they do, and no one came close to NLP Worldwide.  It has by far been the best use of time – I thought I would learn tools to use with others, and I got that plus so much more. I learned skills that help me build more confidence, a better future, better relationships, my business has grown tremendously, and my health is better! There are so many things I’ve gained from learning NLP, I can’t imagine my life without it!


Rachel Khoo

Coach & Speaker, ICF Professional Certified Coach

I have completed the NLP Coach Certification plus NLP Trainers Training. I learned it because I was interested in learning more about the unconscious mind, I’ve always been fascinated by it. I chose NLP Worldwide after looking at many training companies in Singapore but didn’t find something that I fit. I have a friend who trained with NLP Worldwide and started to learn a bit more about the training. I went in with an open mind, just wanting to learn more about myself and the unconscious mind. I took so much away! I love NLP and use in every area of my life. I love the structured way NLP is set up, it all makes sense, is logical, and it is simple to use in my life. I now help clients to manage their money mindset, clear limiting blocks, and create more rapport with money. NLP helps in every aspect of life, and I would recommend learning NLP. Plus, Laureli and Heidi have so much experience, they make it fun, and there is always something to learn!


Judy Liu

Head of L&D and Coaching

I completed the NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner training online – I thought it wouldn’t be as good as in person and I was pleasantly surprised. In my work as a trainer and coach I learned so much about people because of this- I got to see more of my classmates, and I was really able to learn so much in the online environment. It really didn’t feel different than what I expected in person. I learned how to connect with people in a new way that I will take into more of my life. I learned so much, and continue to keep in touch with my classmates and absolutely loved the training!
