NLP Training – It’s a Live Experience

Society of Neuro Linguistic Programming

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

“Can I learn NLP online?  Can I get certified through your school online?”  I received this question again this morning as I have before, and I thought it worthy of a blog entry to answer publicly.  The short answer is “No.”  More emphatically, “No way, Jose!”  Online courses can teach you about NLP, but not how to do NLP.

What is NLP?  NLP is a kind of hypnosis, a supercharged, accelerated hypnosis.  As I’ve discussed many times, NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming is my number one office tool. It’s what I use at Mindworks Hypnosis and NLP to help create success of all varieties.  It’s what I teach LIVE at my career school, Mindworks NLP.

Here was my answer to the inquiry today, from someone outside the United States:

“Hi! Thanks for reaching out. My school does not offer online certifications. NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming is a skill set that can only be learned hands on in a live modeling/teaching environment. Online courses can teach you ABOUT NLP, but not how to DO NLP. Our certifications are awarded to people we have personally verified have a skill set, people who will be able to do the work–Licensed Practitioner of NLP® and Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP®.

So, my suggestion is: hightail it to a live training.

Not all NLP is created equal, also. Your best bet is to learn through the creator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler or his Licensed Trainers  of NLP® (which I am) through the Society of NLP®. Here’s his website: He has Trainers throughout the world.

If a training is not something you can do right now, read any of Dr. Bandler’s books to learn more. I recommend his “Get the Life you Want.” to get started.

NLP is amazing, fascinating, and incredibly powerful. It’s worth your time and energy and money to learn. It’s a methodology of empowerment.  Good luck to you!

The best NLP learning is a live experience, an experiential process involving forming a multitude of base skills such as calibration, rapport management, hypnotic language, and so much more in addition to the “techniques” themselves.  Live practice and informed feedback is essential in this learning.

Hi, Hypnosis & NLP Friends!

Sharing our latest press release.  We are pleased to announce another offering from the career school side of our work.  All the Best, Connie

Licensed private career school, Mindworks NLP, is pleased to announce an upcoming live training event in the Greater Seattle area: “Licensed Practitioner of NLP ®” certification program.  It is slated for 8 days, four weekends, October 6, 7, 13, 14, 27, 28, and November 3, 4, 2018.

NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, is a powerful methodology of personal change and influence involving understanding the mind, how it works, and how to create effective communications and connections.  With NLP training, we learn to read others (calibration), develop connections with others (rapport), wield influence through artful language (Ericksonian language), choose our own state of mind (anchoring) and so much more.  NLP can transform thinking, feelings, and behaviors in desired ways.  With these tools, it becomes very easy to create personal change and success of all varieties in ourselves and others.

This is a live, experiential program, not just learning “about NLP,” but rather, learning to “do NLP.”  Licensed Trainers of NLP®, Connie and Michael Brannan’s course is designed for anyone, business people, young people, parents, therapists, those interested in self-development, those curious about the power of mind, or those looking for a new career as an NLP Practitioner.  The uses of NLP are unlimited, for business success, improving relationships, effective parenting, enhanced learning, personal development, and more.  This certification comes through the Society of NLP®, the organization of the co-originator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler.

Students will learn not only techniques of change, but the underlying principles of empowerment and structure of change.  Students will learn how the mind creates our world, beliefs, and actions, and how we can alter those things.  Included:

–Well-formed goals

–Representational systems

–Eye accessing



–Meta model

–Milton model



–Several powerful change processes

–And more.

–Bonus presentation on NLP for Personal Development.

Mindworks NLP offers a variety of mind power training courses, including hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic programming certification programs), and stage hypnosis training.  Connie & Michael Brannan also offer private sessions of NLP blended with hypnotherapy in their clinical practice, Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP in Bellevue, WA.
