Many people want to learn about NLP but have never considered getting an NLP Certification, however, when I was writing the book on Directed Dreaming, I met a lot of people that helped me discover new ideas and better self help products. One of those people was Steve G. Jones author of the book: “Discovering the World of NLP Through Steve G. Jones” NLP Practitioner Manual
Steve has advanced his self help business in neuro linguistic programming hypnosis and just recently announced the opening of his NLP Practitioner Certification Program. It’s worth noting that even if you’re not interested in getting the NLP Certification, it’s still worth checking out this program for your own self help.
This program breaks away the traditional barriers to NLP and is available as online NLP courses for everyone who wants to learn it.
The price of the entire course is currently at $147, but be sure to check out the sales page as there are special sales going on every now and then, and it also depends on how much information you need. (for example, do you the entire neuro linguistic programming training certification, or do you want to know about neuro linguistic programming hypnosis for your own use?)
And, just for the record, I paid over $900 for every class I took in college, so this is a very small price to pay for an entire certification course. Also, consider that attending seminars and lectures can cost up to $2,000 just for the registration, and then you have travel, meals and hotel expenses. And, you will be able to work directly with Steve G. Jones to get your NLP certification.
That’s why I decided to give you a quick review of this neuro linguistic programming course, so you can get a quick peek inside, here’s what information is included in this NLP certification course:
The NLP Practitioner Manual is the 100-page textbook included in the course package, which also includes ten full-length videos where Steve G. Jones will be teaching all the strategies, techniques and concepts one on one. The manual was not meant to fully reflect the videos or vice versa. According to Jones, this was done to create a more dynamic and beneficial learning environment.
The book has ten chapters and covers topics such as:
- Wide Eyes (or Soft Eyes)
- Eye Accessing Cues
- Representation Systems
- Sub-Modality Distinctions
- States of Excellence
- Major Presuppositions of NLP
- Lie/Truth Submodality Exercise
- New Behavior Generator
- NLP Handshake Interrupt (Instant) Induction
- 6-Step Reframing Outline
- Building Self-Confidence
These are just a fraction of the total number of topics covered in the NLP Practitioner Manual.
In the first part of the book, Questions and Answers About NLP, Jones carefully outlines the most essential questions about the discipline and provides a point-by-point explanation to each of these questions. If you’re new to neuro linguistic programming training, this information will help you get a quick start and understand the goals of this self help program. As you can guess, because the term “neuro” is part of the process, it’s not just behavior theory, but also the neurology body of knowledge.
“At a later chapter, Jones shows how an NLP Practitioner can establish rapport in four steps. Rapport in NLP is really about moving parallel to the actions, gestures and language of the other person. After showing how rapport can be achieved with clients, Jones enthuses: ”…Remember, you want to be calm, centered, relaxed and positive. Remain focused. Think Creatively. Positively. Visualize Success!””
Visualizing success is part of the process in any self-hypnosis program, which is why you are also shown how to increase the acuity (clearness) of each of the major senses. Regardless of what type of thinker you may be, there is a way to increase the acuity of your senses through specific exercises.
All of these are discussed in the topic on Sensory Acuity. As shown above, there’s also a chapter on Eye Accessing Cues. Cues are markers that identify what type of thinker a person is by looking at the direction the eyes take (up, left, right, etc.). All of these are hints as to what a person is thinking, which is important if you want to make sure they are listing to you, and/or following along.
