Who Are NLP World & What Do We Stand For?

NLP World started out with a vision for NLP Training and development within the UK. Wanting to get away from usual money grabbing, churn-mill ethics to something a little more intimate; something that integrated the trainings on an individual level, as well as being technically sound. Our ambition, to create a network of people rather than seeing participants as disposable commodities, is bearing fruit.

Why train with us?

We offer the highest quality NLP course at very competitive rates. We also offer a fast track approach to training which means that you can cut down the number of training room hours. We combine this with a comprehensive pre-course home study pack, with a media package (specially designed audio MP3’s and DVDs containing information, theory and demonstrations of techniques). Coupled with the intimate style that NLP World run their training. A brief ‘warning’ here: The course is intense and is designed so. Your clients may have severe issues that they want to deal with. In the training room, that may well be reconstructed and your own patterns may emerge. What I we have realised is that when you can experience how issues disappear, you become a much better practitioner yourself.

We run bespoke business NLP trainings as well as the standard NLP Practitioner Training (duration seven or four days), and the Master Practitioner Training (modular 3 x four days plus two days out of the training environment).

October-2014-group-pictureWe also work with small group sizes. Our training’s are limited to 20 people which means that you will always receive personal attention from the trainer and also be closely monitored and supervised throughout the training. We have 1 assistant to every 3/4 participants, increasing your contact to the materials and concepts being put before you.We also offer a unique continual learning and support programme. After our training’s, we invite you to stay in touch and ask your NLP related questions. We have a seminar programme that takes place one evening a month in London, where you can learn new skills, refine existing skills and ask questions. If you go on to do the Master Practitioner Training with us, you will also complete a comprehensive home study package to refine your Practitioner skills and prepare you for the Master Practitioner Training.

On our training you train with Terry Elston, leading NLP trainer who over the last 20 years has been teaching and coaching with NLP to a wide range of different clients. Our trainers are often involved in training major blue chip companies and have also worked with hundreds of different clients on a one to one basis, or in training. Terry is a trainer of Time Based Techniques and Hypnosis as well as being a trainer of NLP. He is also a level 2 trainer of Spiral Dynamics, a Human Values based personality and corporate evaluation tool.

Your trainers are some of the most experienced in the country, and in constant demand. They are committed to make your learning experience the best possible and your training will be fun and intensive. Terry has himself trained with Tad James, David Shepherd, John Overdurf and many other respected names in NLP. He is constantly updating the NLP training with new ideas and breakthroughs, and incorporating the best techniques and approaches that he has learned in over a decade and is continuing to develop.

We believe that all work is an opportunity to develop ourselves as people. There is no activity on earth that cannot lead in some way to learning and development. As managers and leaders, we all have the responsibility to set up conditions for that to happen.

The techniques of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Based Techniques and Hypnosis are now seen as the most powerful tools around to change situations and get what you want in life.

If you don’t feel like taking a training just yet, we have also developed an array of incredible self -development books and MP3 products to suit your tastes. Click here to visit the shop.

Yet, if the question you want answering is the “who do you choose” as your provider question, then that may be answered this way; NLP World has been chosen by the Government, the MOD, the Home Office, the Police Force, Education Department and many, many blue chip companies (see NLP Business Training), to supply all kinds of learning and development using these amazing techniques.


Here’s the second, to give you more of the ‘flavour’ of a course…..

On our trainings, you will have the opportunity to work on your own self-development as well as gaining NLP skills that enable you to get to the next level of your life.

The personal touch is what our theme at NLP World is. Our motto is “taking your training personally”, that means we really do care what result you get and will do everything to ensure that it happens!

Your ability to learn and progress does not stop when you have finished the training, in fact for some, it’s an amazing start! Therefore we encourage you to stay in touch, using NLP World as a facility into the future.

At NLP World we have research which is proven that your productivity (or your staff’s) increases with happiness levels; your time off work decreases because of being in tune with your environment, and therefore less stress and your efficiency within the company or practice contributes to the whole rather than just doing a job.

Now we think at least part of our mission is coming closer to the Intention, as the natural networks of delegates are growing around us and we regularly get introduced into their own organisations to run trainings or to see how to improve the working environment.

Many people also want to come and assist on trainings and take part in a context they feel at home in.

Who we are

picture susanne billanderSusanne Billander was only 22 years old when she became a Practitioner of NLP. From a standing start, just three years later, she was training top executives in American Express and getting the highest feedback of all the trainers! Her ability to “see” the highest in people, whilst giving feedback of the top order, leaves participants lost for words as they change into the best individuals and Practitioners that they came here for.

We are a company that takes your training personally. We have all been practitioners before and sometimes there are more questions when finishing training, than there were at the beginning. That’s why NLP World is a world of resources for you before, during and after your training with us. The people here at NLP World are hand picked for their technical training abilities and personalities; and, above all, we all care! We also believe in good value. We will give you the best possible training, with the most up to date material at the least cost to you.

You have trainers here who are qualified to teach NLP to the Master Practitioner level, Master Time Based Techniques material (of which there are only a few in this country) Hypnosis (as a qualification) and also have valuable experience in Meta- Medicine techniques, for health and healing.

We also have an office in Cape Town and a dedicated South African website www.nlpworldsa.co.za

Here’s what a few of the people from our trainings have to say:

“I’ve attended a great many trainings in my role as CEO of a City Communications business and none have got close to the sequence of deep learnings I have experienced for the last week. A big thank you!
Robin Johnson – Business Consultant, Sussex

“The whole presupposition of fun and passionate belief in the material was outstanding and especially the intelligence in the delivery of the training, giving respect to the intelligence of the delegates: passion, love and respect
Shana Dean, Legal P.A. New York

“I have grown, changed and improved myself so much over the sum of just one week. It has been a true and remarkable experience. For your expertise, energy and love! Thank you so Much!!”
Nick Penny, Accountant, London

“I really loved the presentation of the material, .. I just didn’t even notice the days passing.” Theodore Kyriacos, Psychotherapist, London

“The NLP World experience is one of totally enthusiasm about the subject and that really passed it on to me. There was also a lot of participation so that we all had a chance to try out the techniques I had a great time – lots of fun!”
Sally Price, Staff Liaison Officer, Cardiff

“Time Based Techniques is simply amazing! Very exciting stuff! Wow factor 10!!!”
Max Kirsten, Life/Business Coach and Hypnotherapist, London

“I loved the hypnosis part of the course. For a start, I hadn’t expected to laugh quite so much or for so long, and had also not realized that hypnosis would go so far beyond my expectations. I found it to be an immensely powerful and very gentle treatment that makes profound change possible in a short time. And besides all of this, it also feels great to be hypnotized!”
Greg Southey, IT Business Consultant, Surrey

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all of the training, particularly the experience of making major personal changes. I’m very very grateful; It’s been an honour to be among such a gathering!”
Sheila Morrell, Lancashire

“The course was high energy and definitely transforming, enabling me to access the best that I have to offer!”
Paul Bailey, Therapist, Eastbourne
