Recently I saw a client who had an incredible dream – to write a novel. She had wanted to do this for years and years, but kept finding all sorts of reasons, excuses and other activities to put it off. She wasn’t consciously finding these other things to do, or think of excuses, but every time she would have sat down to start at writing, she’d find other things to occupy her!
She realized that at some level she was sabotaging her own chance of success. It was like part of her really wanted to write this incredible piece of work and get it published, but there was some other part of her that was holding her back.
This was a clear example of inner conflict – where there were 2 parts of her that both wanted different things and ultimately she didn’t feel happy either way
I took her through the NLP technique for ‘Parts Integration’ – one part had the positive intention of being safe and secure and the other part had the intention of being successful. On the surface the one part that wanted to be safe thought that being successful might put her at risk, so every time she took action to be successful she sabotaged herself. During the process we found a higher common intention between the parts and she found a way they could work together rather than be in conflict.
We then reinforced the change with hypnosis – hypnosis is a wonderful way to work at a deep level with the unconscious mind – the thing is that most courses teaching what they think is hypnosis, is not really hypnosis! Learning hypnotherapy requires more than spending half or one day on an NLP course. It really needs proper training!
That evening she went away and write solidly for four hours. She carried on consistently writing over the next weeks until she had finished her novel. Within months she had it published!
I have seen NLP make the difference in helping so many people bring their dreams into reality and it all starts with the NLP Practitioner course!

NLP Practitioner training
Choosing the right Practitioner course is crucial!
We have lots of students who have attended our training after training with other organizations and being unhappy. Look out for how experienced the trainer is – I’ve been working in NLP since 1990. If the trainer has only recently certified, then they may not have the wealth of experience of someone else.
It really is worth taking time and traveling to find a good training. There’s so many places offering NLP now and only a small percentage offer quality training. One thing to look for is whether the trainer is INLPTA certified. INLPTA is the only worldwide independent NLP Trainer Association adhering to a strict code of practice. Of course, you still need to find out about the trainer’s experience.
We offer the highest quality trainings in the world and certification through INLPTA, ABNLP and ANLP.
