Master Practitioner

Course Fees Each Module Priced Separately
Course Leader Cricket Kemp
Course Pattern Separate Modules starting November 2017

Our Master Practitioner Course concentrates on discovering how different people maintain consistency in their behaviour and skills. In addition to ‘mastering’ the Practitioner skills, you will be paying attention to the patterns that enable someone to do something well. We call this skill ‘modelling’. If the behaviour is useful, you can learn it yourself, or copy it and teach it to others. If it isn’t useful, you can learn how to eliminate, improve or exchange it. You will present a skill you have ‘modelled’, as a project for the Master Practitioner course. You must have attended a Practitioner course with a minimum of 120 trainer contact hours.

Our Trainers

We use a variety of accredited and skilled NLP Trainers for this course, so that you get a variety of specialist views of NLP. They come from many professional backgrounds, and many present regularly at various NLP Conferences and publish NLP articles. Some of them have been studying NLP for more than twenty years. We intend that they will give you nlp skills to take away with you.

Our Trainers include:

Cricket Kemp – Matthew Hudson – Gary Lintern – Lysa Morrison – Caitlin Walker

Using Language More Elegantly

All of our trainers are particularly interested in language, and how it affects our thinking. On this course we encourage you to pay attention to the language that you are using, and that others are using around you, and to notice what happens as a result of the language which is being used. Then we show you ways of improving the result, by changing the language. It is one of the most powerful skills that nlp offers.

Clean Language

Our courses include two days of Clean Language training by Caitlin Walker, using the language patterns of David Grove to elicit metaphors that strongly affect our behaviour.

Course Focus

Some of our trainers are, or have been, full-time teachers, and are interested in the use of NLP to enhance teaching, training and learning. Examples from business, counselling and therapy, police work, research, public sector work, and many other areas will be used on this course. We once worked with someone to enhance the training of guide dogs for the blind!

Why not an intensive course?

NLP skills are powerful, and often affect and change the way you experience the world. For this reason, we prefer to run our courses for over ten months, to give people time to practise and internalise their skills. We have tried other formats, and find this one is the most successful. You will need to attend a combination of modules, or make up the time in some well-supervised way. This might be a Practice Group, another course, or an nlp conference session.


You must attend these courses for a minimum of 120 trainer contact hours. In addition you must demonstrate on the certification weekend that you have acquired an appropriate level of the skills of NLP. There are some short written assignments to complete.

We are able to fund a very few bursaries each year, usually half price. These may go to participants like the unemployed or very low paid, the homeless, or those who work in a volunteer capacity for a charity. We sometimes give a bursary to partners of participants, to people refreshing their skills, or to one of two people from the same ‘people’ organisation such as a school, care home, youth club, etc.. Please note that ‘partner’ implies someone living with you in an intimate relationship, and sharing household expenses. Send your application with the appropriate information.
