Coaching is a career path that has many personal rewards, provides flexibility and helps others live their best life while you live your own.

Start NOW and begin your new career in 6-12 months live in person or live online!

ICF Coaching is one of the fastest growing industries, with more and more people struggling through life, you are needed more than ever. And while the ICF coaching industry is growing, not all coaches are created equal.

From Life Coaching to Executive Coaching – the thing that sets one coach apart from the other is the modality they use to coach. Of course, as a coach, you want to be the best coach you can possibly be, and that is where Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) with The Worldwide Institutes of NLP comes in. Because NLP is an Outcome Based tool it is exceptional to help people to maintain motivation, clear barriers and reach their goals.

There are plenty of ICF coaching courses out there, but don’t you want the one that will set you apart from the other coaches in your field?

So, what makes a good coach, excellent and what is NLP?

NLP goes beyond the traditional methods of psychology, counselling, life coaching, therapy and helps your clients get the desired OUTCOME quickly by working at an unconscious level.

In this fast paced world, people have less patience and less time to wait, NLP isn’t about talking about the clients’ problems for months or even years like some other modalities, NLP has an Outcome Solution focus – meaning that instead of focusing on a problem, we identify ways to help clients achieve their desired outcome and we apply the tools of NLP to build resources and clear interferences using the unconscious mind.

Not all Coach Training is the same!

There are a lot of things that set NLP Worldwide apart from other Coach Training schools. We pride ourselves on these differences as it makes us stand out from the rest.

for Coaching Others

As a Coach, you want to know what you are doing, and you want to know that what you are doing is effective. Through this Coach Training, you will know what to do with your client, when to do it, how to do it and more importantly, why you are doing it. This way, you are able to replicate your success with clients.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a conversational process in which resources and capabilities are developed and represents a relationship of cooperation that involves an alliance in the work of empowering a client. Coaching is tailored to the client and their needs, where the coach guides and supports the client in achieving their goals, desires and intentions. Coaching enables the client to overcome personal barriers and boundaries, leading them to the state to use their best abilities in a targeted way, and supports them to fulfill their tasks within the team, family, company in the best possible way. 

Coaching is a process focused on the goal and the solution and the goal of the coach is to support the client in developing skills and abilities so that the client finds the best solution, formulates personal and professional goals, remains focused on the necessary actions for their realisation and thus achieves success in personal, family, partner or business plan.

Who is Coach Certification For?

If you have a desire to become a professional coach, learn the most up-to-date methods with practical hands-on training from the best trainers, this program might be for you.

This training is an ACTP course with the International Coach Federation which sets quality standards, core competencies and ethical principles in professional ICF coaching in all areas – business, life, management, sports, career, health, executive. This uniquely designed program is intended for all who want to improve their work, discover and exploit their potentials, improve relationships with their partner and family, direct their careers, improve the skills of parenting or are committed to increasing the quality of their lives and the lives of others.

Whether you are a leader, manager, parent, athlete, professional in any area, parent, friend or associate or you want to be professionally involved in ICF coaching, this training allows you through a clear and structured approach to coaching to master ICF  coaching techniques that can be useful to you as a professional coach.

Help your clients find out who they are and why they are alive. Help them to tap into their unconscious mind and clear limiting beliefs, behaviours and blocks that hold them back. Assist them to embrace who they are, what they want and help them find their passions and help them live their truth.  – Dr. Heidi Heron PsyD, MCC

Over the years, many coaches have come to learn NLP with us only to wonder why they didn’t start with this modality in the first place.  Adding NLP into your toolbox as a Coach is imperative, which is why we fortify your coaching skills with the heartiness of NLP as a base for everything you do.

NLP has an Outcome Solution focus – meaning that instead of focusing on a problem, we identify how to find ways to help clients achieve their desired outcome and we apply the tools of NLP to build resources and clear interferences using the unconscious mind.

The tools and methodologies of NLP to assist clients in both a therapeutic and coaching aspect.  Because NLP is a very outcome specific coaching tool that encompass skills for identifying goals, creating motivation, clearing barriers for success and creating a clear pathway, you can help a client get to their desired state or goal quicker and more efficiently than more traditional methods.


Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a psychological study of excellence. It predominantly teaches you, the coach, to understand   and identify how the language of the mind creates programs and patterns of emotions, behaviours and thoughts.

As a Coach, you can use this information and the techniques of NLP to assist your clients to change unuseful patterns, enhance what is working well and create new patterns. At the same time, you will assist your clients to build and access resources to help them to achieve and exceed their own personal goals. 

Based on modelling the excellence of three psychotherapists during the 1970-80’s, NLP is still being developed, streamlined and advanced.

It has been found that NLP Coaches: 

  • Are able to help their clients 45% faster than traditional coaches
  • Have versatile skills to bridge the gap between coaching and therapy
  • Earn up to 85%more income than non-trained NLP coaches
  • Report more self-awareness, better communication skills and better relationships in their own lives
