NLP is currently the most hands-on, powerful methodology available in the world of coaching. It gives specific techniques, patterns, communication tools and the ability to design custom patterns which are customizable to the clients' coaching sessions. It also offers the ability to design techniques that will help clients resolve issues of the past, negative beliefs and limitations in the present, as well as to set-up the brain in a way that it can propel itself into the future. It works on a thinking, emotion, behavioral, conscious and unconscious level. This is unchartered territory in other coaching modalities that have a more goal-setting and life-project management focus.

What makes coaching and learning NLP different from other methodologies and training?

Traditional coaching has very little relation to psychology or therapy. NLP does, however it is different from traditional psychology, which has a focus on talking about the past on a very deep and structured level. NLP has more of a relation to positive psychology (as a form of therapy, and not motivational speaking), which is only 10 years old and only taught by the leading universities of the world, such as Harvard.

NLP is however still different from positive psychology, as it extrapolated tools from different fields of psychology, master communicators, and high flyers and top performers in business, education, and the sports world. NLP Practitioner assumes that a person has had no psychology training at all, so this training still teaches topics such as how to build rapport, how to question, how to figure out presenting problems or limitations, to then propel this into the solution realm in positive ways rather than negative exploration. NLP focuses on the coding of the brain, and changing this through techniques. It steps into the world of changing emotions, thinking, behavior modification (including addiction), limiting beliefs, values and allows for a connection to spirituality and mindfulness if so desired by the practitioner.

It is important to understand that other coaching methodologies focus in a training context more with an academic or a traditional "school" flair where information is presented, definitions and content studied and the doing is home-work, and largely focused around coaching using paper forms and pre-determined structure recycled for every client. Life coaching certification with NLP is taught using NLP itself in the presentation of the trainer, as they understand how the brain processes information, by doing, and experiencing. Through this the student not only learns how to apply NLP on other students, but is also the client with like-minded individuals around the world. Through that it becomes a life and work changing training as well as a certification course.

Traditional coaching relates more to goal setting and task management, encouraging, motivating, and consciously discussing problems rather than offering specific techniques to resolve limitations such as fears, phobias, negative emotions installed in the past, inner conflict, grief, anger, etc. NLP comes paired with questioning techniques that can make the unconscious real presenting issue or desire conscious, to then provide solutions or new options and possibilities for the brain. These are step-by-step processes that the NLP coach guides the client through. This means through NLP coaching it is possible for a client to resolve their fear, anxiety, and to step into better emotional states.

NLP also has an advanced set of tools for goal setting, not just consciously, but the embedding of it in the structure of the brain: the coding of the brain. Though it works on a conscious as well as unconscious level, it cannot be considered esoteric. It is more logical, and like hypnosis it does operate on a conscious and unconscious level. The client is requested to do certain things with their brain inside these processes, in order to change coding. NLP has a logical and grounded approach. Eyes closed processes are not uncommon, where someone is fully awake with their logical mind fully and completely present (unlike hypnosis), but are more so a way for a client to change the way they code the information by visualizing internally, rather than being distracted by what is in the room and focusing externally.

NLP is also paired with mastery in communication, which translates to coaching, mediation, negotiation, getting agreements, teaching, and public speaking.
