WHAT WILL WE DO? NLP is a field of applied psychology. It focuses on helping us and the young people we work with to make changes in the way we think, feel and behave, helping to make life even better and to avoid making bad life decisions.

You will have lots of chances to explore how NLP will work for you. You will be expected to be work with others in the roles of: NLP guide; as a person exploring issues; and as an observer, offering feedback and advice to colleagues. NLP is done best with a light-touch. Humour, stories, sharing of expertise and enjoyment are at the core of our training. HOW WILL IT FIT IN WITH OUR LIVES & WORK?
