Learn NLP – USA

Internationally recognised
NLP Certification Training

Since 1994, The Worldwide Institutes of NLP have been offering NLP training through the world. All of our courses exceed the international minimum requirements of NLP and contain all required elements, including Timeline, Ericksonian Hypnosis and Coaching.

Our programs in the United States are all lead by NLP Master Trainer Dr. Heidi Heron.


Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is about modelling excellence through your own life. Every NLP Certification course with NLP Worldwide looks at using NLP in 3 ways

For yourself | Within business | With others

The key aspect of all of this is YOU.

You are in charge of your mind, and therefore your results!

What is the difference between your MIND and your BRAIN? Do you know, your thinking changes the structure of your brain because your mind is separate to your brain.

Your MIND controls your brain. Your brain does not control your mind. With NLP, you take control of what you think, feel and choose – therefore you take control of your BRAIN. 

What you THINK, how you FEEL and what you CHOOSE effects your BRAIN and how your brain is wired and programmed. Because the MIND is more powerful than your brain you can change how your brain is programmed. This ability for the brain to change as a result of mind work is called neuroplasticity.

Neuro Linguistic Programming, which is based on modelling excellence, has tools to help you to change your programming at an unconscious level – which will help you to automatically Think – Feel – Choose in the way that is best for you to be your true and authentic self.

What will you take away from learning NLP?

We are often asked“what areas of life can you use NLP?”, the easier question to answer is “What areas of life can you NOT use NLP?” – the answer to that one, we haven’t yet found an area of life where you can’t use NLP! Seriously! 

With NLP in your life:
