NLP Practitioner Training Course

Are you ready to take the next step? With the NLP Practitioner Training Course, you will improve your personal growth. Many of our participants follow the practitioner training course, because they want: 

  • to communicate better to achieve more
  • a deeper connection with themselves and others
  • to discover what they really want in life. 
  • to gain greater insight into themselves and others
  • to achieve their goals (lose weight, eat healthier, financial independence or whatever)
  • simply want to be happier and lead a more relaxed, meaningful and energetic life 

The NLP Practitioner Training Course will offer you clear insights, techniques and skills to achieve the above and other goals. The training is practical and provides immediate results.

You are at an important point in your life. 

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). With NLP, you gain insight in deeply ingrained patterns in your mind and body. After that you are going to change them with the help of proven mental techniques. With NLP, you can influence your subconscious mind and direct your emotions and change your internal processes for dialogue and use your body to get a grip on your mind. 

The great thing is that anyone can learn these techniques. We offer high-level courses which are at the same time practical and accessible.

The NLP Practitioner Training Course is a manual for your brains

Did you know that 95% of our behaviour is determined by subconscious patterns and habits? With NLP, you gain insight into subconscious and ingrained patterns, for example your communication with others, a negative mindset, self-subversive behaviour or the achievement of goals. In the next step you will change your habits with the help of different mental techniques 

The NLP Practitioner training course is a manual for your brains. It is an 15-day training course that teaches you how to recognise subconscious processes that you know how to change where necessary. It is a manual for the rest of your life. The training is full of “eureka” moments and tips to gain insight in yourself and others and it provides you with practical tools.

“By means of neuro linguistic programming, you gain insight in your own behaviour and that of others. NLP trainers of UNLP belong to the top of the Dutch market.”

Dr Vincent van der Burg, co-founder of UNLP

You will not only get a good insight in your own acting, thinking and feeling, but also that of others. Through this insight you grow into who you are and you are able to improve your communication with others in work and private relationships.

So, you will improve your communication with others. You will excel at interpreting non-verbal behaviour, connecting and having conversations with others and directing their behaviour. 

Taking the NLP Practitioner Training Course is the best investment in yourself!

You will learn to set and achieve goals. You discover what you really want and how you can reach this through full commitment. You follow an optimal work plan to achieve each goal in a short time. In the NLP Practitioner Training Course, you learn how much you can achieve in a few moments, which take some therapists years to accomplish. For example, you want to earn more money, a better career or a change of career. Or you wish more in-depth relationships or more friends or a better interaction with yourself or others.

You will receive practical tools with which you can determine how you want to feel. It is not for nothing that the NLP Practitioner Training Course at UNLP is a roadmap for life. Gaining control over how you feel is a valuable tool in this. In the NLP Practitioner Training Course you learn how you can evoke and install desired emotions (self-confidence, self-discipline, creativity or focus, etc.) so that you can always rely on them.

You will tackle and resolve inner conflicts. On the one hand you want to stop smoking, on the other hand you want to keep your freedom, you want to live a healthy life and you want to enjoy it, you want to be in the foreground and you are fine with being in the background. These inner conflicts take a lot of energy and hinder you from achieving your goal. In the NLP Practitioner Training Course, you are going to solve these conflicts so that you gain what you want.

For who is the NLP training suitable? 

Do you, as a male or female, young or old(er), extrovert or introvert, with experience in personal growth or not at all, want to get the most out of yourself, to develop yourself and grow? Then NLP is suitable for you. Participants in an NLP Practitioner training course go beyond just reading a book or doing a one-day workshop. They are willing to invest 15 days of their lives in themselves. You will learn in the NLP Practitioner Training Course everything you need to use NLP in your life. From day one you get plenty of insights which you immediately benefit from in your daily life.

The NLP Practitioner Training Course will take place at our location in Amsterdam or ‘s-Graveland (Hilversum).

Content of the training

The training consists of a total of 15 training days. At the end of the training you will receive the NLP Practitioner ABNLP certificate.

Block 1 (day 1, 2 & 3): Personal leadership

In this block you will be introduced to NLP and you will learn how you can use this for yourself and in communication with other. You become familiar with the process of personal change, informal learning and how your thoughts effect your emotions and behaviours.

In addition, you will learn to engage quickly and deeply with yourself and others. You will learn to communicate at several levels and to make use of unintentional signals. You learn to interpret people verbally and non-verbally and to tune into their thoughts. With this skill in your fingertips, you can identify and influence (subconscious) blockages, motivation, obstacles, goals and intentions. You learn all this through exercises, role plays and live demonstrations on both a conscious and unconscious level.

A selection of the topics of block 1:

  • Communication model
  • What NLP is and what it is not
  • The power of Focus (setting goals)
  • Levels of communication and (subconscious) change
  • Outcome model for setting goals at a subconscious level
  • Representation systems
  • Keys for a profound connection
  • Unconscious functioning of mental association
  • Pain-pleasure principle
  • The three elements of NLP: attitude, techniques and philosophy
  • Interpreting and influencing non-verbal behaviour
  • Personal change in a safe way
  • Etc.


Block 2 (day 4 & 5): The impact of thoughts

Are you sometimes overwhelmed with worry? Do you regularly experience stress or anxiety or are you nervous? Your thoughts can have an incredible impact if they are good and positive so that they can help you feel calm and confident. Your thoughts become an obstacle when they stop you from being who you want to be, from achieving your goals or from feeling good wherever and whenever you want.

In this block you will learn to affect your thoughts quickly and effectively. You learn to release the emotional impact of negative memories, to disable your judgment and eliminate/redirect negative thoughts. After this block you are a master of manipulating your own thoughts. Worries about the future are a thing of the past and negative memories stay where they belong: in the past.

A selection of the topics of block 2:

  • Sub modalities: learning to monitor and adjust your thought process
  • How your thoughts determine how you feel and what you do
  • Mapping Across: to learn from personal mental strategies
  • Visual Swish: the technique for unlearning bad habits
  • Eliminating/redirecting negative thinking in a few minutes
  • Get rid of insomnia once and for all
  • Kinaesthetic Swish: the use of breaking patterns
  • To stop feelings of fear, nervousness and restlessness
  • To urge yourself to endless energy, inspiration and motivation
  • The dialogue with yourself: to eliminate your negative voice(s).
  • To remove stress from your life
  • Etc.

Block 3 (day 6 & 7): Emotional intelligence

In this block you start working with your emotional energy. On the one hand, you learn to neutralise the negative impact of past experiences. The memories remain but the emotional blocks that impact your daily life, disappear. On the other hand, you learn to (re)activate positive thinking in your thoughts, actions and feelings in this block.

As a result, you can be much more yourself and you feel free, powerful and balanced. The next step is to break negative habits and to create positive ones. You will learn to use emotions instead of emotions suppressing you in this block. This makes goals easier to achieve, life is easier and relationships are more fluid.

A selection from the topics of block 3:

  • Activating positive feelings (self-confidence, stability and strength) wherever/whenever you want
  • Neutralising the emotional impact of negative events
  • Learn to feel good about yourself for no reason
  • Collapsing anchor: Eliminating emotional stressors
  • Reinforcing and (re)activating natural resources
  • Become less sensitive to the negativity of others
  • Eliminating bad habits by supplying the right emotional energy.
  • Change your Personal History: free yourself from negative emotions from the past
  • Create self-confidence and rest during presentations, conversations, etc.
  • Etc.

Block 4 (day 8 & 9): break through blockages

This block will be etched in your memory for the rest of your life. There is plenty of attention for discovering and conditioning unprecedented energy, positivity and transformation. Reading about NLP is good, but truly feeling and experiencing transformation and breakthrough are essential. 

If all obstacles are out of the way, you will discover what you really want, where your passion is, what your capacities are and at what level your energy is. Two days of this block you yourself and your environment will notice the way you approach life, how you deal with what you want, how you cope with others and how you feel about yourself.

A selection from the topics of block 4:

  • Discovering subconscious blockages
  • Breaking through limiting beliefs
  • Establishing positive beliefs
  • Creating congruence between head (thinking), heart (feeling) and stomach (speaking)
  • Identifying underlying subconscious motives
  • Determining what you really want
  • Conditioning a sense of success and breakthrough
  • Undoing subconscious patterns
  • Discovering and retaining the maximum potential
  • Etc.…

Block 5 (day 10): Master of language

We all know the power of language. It makes that the bizarre ideas of dictators are widely accepted. It also makes that a first conversation can turn into a love affair or that you are inspired by someone who knows how to touch your soul. The great thing about language is that a language can be learned.

One of the achievements of NLP is that they have been able to chart the material, which excellent communicators (don’t) do.

So you can offer this as study material to anyone who can use good language skills, for example in professions such as managers, as a partner, parent, friend, teacher, politician or seller.

A selection of the topics of block 5:

  • Become an excellent communicator
  • Learn to communicate and influence people on a subconscious level
  • Identify when someone does not know what he is talking about
  • Know how to quickly get through the heart of every conversation or meeting
  • Be the one who impresses the crowd by what you say
  • Reframe/Review justified matters or vice versa.
  • Do you really understand your conversation partner in his way of thinking, acting and feeling?
  • Depth structure: discover what someone really means.
  • Learn to always see and feel a different perspective
  • Discover how it is to put yourself in the other’s place
  • Become a master in ‘small talk’ and deep conversations
  • And more…

Block 6 (day 11 & 12): the overall picture

Many people experience that they are confronted with the same problems over and over again despite working intensely on themselves. Life patterns do not emerge by coincidence. They are created, aware but mostly unaware, due to the influence of systems we are part of. Our way of thinking, beliefs and habits, are not just innate, but they also originate from our family.

Family constellations is a method that helps to discover new approaches to a happy life. Family constellations reveal unconscious habits that are transferred through generations. They provide in-depth insight and stimulate to change things for the better in your life.

A selection of the topics from block 6:

  • How do I find more peace in myself?
  • Strategies: What do you do mentally to obtain a certain result?
  • What makes that you face the same problems / experience the same emotions?
  • What do you need to fulfil your potential?
  • What stops you from shaping your own life?
  • Connecting thinking (head), feeling (heart) and talking (stomach)?
  • Family constellations: Research into personal systemic dynamics
  • How to stop living someone else’s life
  • Feel like you are not getting the most out of your life
  • Lack of decisiveness, perseverance or pleasure
  • Allowing your love, energy and strength to flow forth
  • Etc.

Block 7 (day 13 & 14): Transformation

This block focuses on working with timelines. A timeline is an (imaginary) line that connects all events in a person’s life in chronological order, like memories from the past, future goals and dreams. You could compare it to a ‘common thread’ or ‘path of life’, running through someone’s past, present and future.

Working with timelines is a practical, fast and effective way to remove past constraints and achieve future goals more easily. Emotions that are mainly dealt with in this block are quilt, shame, anger and sadness.  All this takes place in a pragmatic, safe and targeted way.

A selection of the topics of block 7:

  • Changing limiting beliefs
  • Renouncing limiting emotions / needs
  • Achieve future goals more easily
  • Visual Squash: Discovering and resolving inner conflicts
  • Tackling bad habits thoroughly
  • Creating an attractive future
  • Freeing yourself from negative events from the past
  • Releasing energy-consuming emotions such as anger and shame
  • Achieving goals more easily
  • Etc.

Block 8 (day 15): Integration

De NLP Practitioner training is concluded with a certification weekend. In this weekend you will apply NLP techniques to your fellow participants under the guidance of your NLP trainer(s) and coaches. An evaluation will take place of your skills and personal growth. It is a unique opportunity to refine and update your NLP skills. There is no (central) exam or theory test or the like. 

In this block we will put into practice everything we learned in the past 7 blocks and will conclude this together.

Below you can find frequently asked questions that are relevant when following a
UNLP training.

At some institutes –especially abroad –you often attend an NLP Practitioner Training Course with several hundreds of people. Many, especially smaller and starting, institutions, pride themselves on having small groups of a maximum of 6 or 8 participants. Both a group of 100 and 8 people are far from ideal.

The disadvantage of such a small group is that you often practice with the same people and that your skills decline and no longer develop at a certain point. In a group of 100 or more, there is hardly any personal contact possible with the trainers, which is a must for an NLP Practitioner Course.

The ideal group size for the NLP (Master) Practitioner Training Course is from 10 to a maximum of 50 participants. There is sufficient interaction, variation and group dynamics in such a group size. A basic rule is that for every 7 participants there is 1 accompanying NLP coach or assistant trainer present, which means 3 coaches for 20 participants and 4 coaches for 30 participants, etc.

An NLP Practitioner Training Course at UNLP involves at least 10 participants. On average, the training groups at UNLP are between 16 and 26 participants.

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is a collection of mental techniques that you can use for all kinds of purposes. For example, to turn limited beliefs into empowering beliefs, to better control your emotions and to counter fears such as public speaking.

I remember very well that I had to give a presentation at school. I got nervous just thinking that I had to talk to the whole group.  And what did my mother say? “Pretend that all people including the master are naked in the classroom!” It was a very simple and effective technique that I got from my mother as a child.

NLP was invented in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grindler. Since then hundreds of highly effective mental techniques have been developed to ultimately create more freedom in how you feel, what you think and how you want to be.

Yes, the NLP Practitioners Training Course is a popular course. Many participants register months before the start of the programme. You can therefore assume that the training will continue.

We assume that you are present every day. Of course, you can unexpectedly miss a day. You then discuss with your head coach how to make up the missed course day.

UNLP is educational institution recognised by the Dutch government. In addition, your NLP Practitioner certificate is recognised by the Dutch Association for NLP (NVNLP) and the worldwide association (ABNLP). Furthermore, there are numerous professional associations that recognise our training courses.

Lunch is included in the training. Every day we set the table, serve the most delicious bread, make a nice soup and there are spreads for your sandwiches.

Do you prefer to eat something else? Feel free to take it with you (there is a refrigerator and a microwave) or you can get something in the nearby area.

Normally you pay within 30 days after registration.

In addition to this total payment within 30 days, there are two other options:

1. Payment immediately upon registration via iDEAL. You will receive a 5% discount on the total invoice amount. When you register for the NLP Coach Training, this quickly delivers you more than €200.

2. Payment in 4 instalments. The discount for direct payment will of course expire. No interest or other costs will be charged. 25% of the total amount must be paid within 5 days after registration. You pay a one-off administration fee of €45.

No, NLP is not a therapy. However, you can solve typical therapeutic problems with it. NLP is intended for people who want to grow and develop. NLP means freedom, to choose whether you get angry about that annoying colleague or family member or whether this person will give you peace or strength, freedom to choose whether you get anxious when you have to give a presentation or whether it will give you confidence or energy, freedom to feel the way you want, freedom to act the way you want and freedom to be who you want to be. In short: ULP means freedom to pursue your goals and follow your dreams. This is what NLP means. NLP is therefore suitable for anyone who wants to improve themselves.

A typical NLP technique is being able to follow and interpret eye movements. In the Practitioner Training Course, you become extremely skilled in observing others. Eye movements tell you whether someone is talking to themselves, is reminiscing about past events or not. In this way you can be sensitive to the ethos of others. You can also find out, for example, whether someone is lying or not. If someone looks to the top left (seen from your own perspective), you know he is inventing something.

NLP Practitioner training courses are offered in various variants, including an intensive 15-day training programme and an 15-day training course spread throughout the year. The 15-day training course is usually spread over six months to a year and is divided over blocks of 2 or 3 days with times from 10:00 AM to 05:00 PM.

An intensive 15-day training program is – as the term itself says – tough. There is a “pre-study” package in advance, in which you are asked to read one or more NLP books in preparation for the course. During the program the times are usually from 10:00 AM tot 05:00 PM and there are shorter breaks and a faster pace.

Which study program you should choose – regular or intensive – depends on your preferences. Would you like to work on your study program for a longer period of time, so that you have plenty of time to practice and apply what has been learnt to your daily life to the maximum? Or would you like to throw yourself into it for 15 days and experience an intensive transformation? Do you like to take your time or do you want to hurry?

One is not better than the other but above all a difference in preference and habit. Your preferences and habits can change. For example, you can decide to do the Practitioner Training Course as a summer course and the Master Practitioner Training Course as an 15-day weekend course or vice versa.

Do you notice during the training that the chosen frequency does not suit you? For example, you want to take the course material faster? Then it is always possible to switch to, for example, the weekend course after a few training days. That’s no problem! That is the advantage of UNLP offering multiple training programmes.

We live in a time where a lot is possible. 100 years ago you had to go into psychoanalysis for at least 3-5 years to get rid of a spider phobia. Nowadays you no longer have to walk around with a phobia. During NLP Training Course, every day people are relieved of their phobia in 10 minutes time and time again.

With advanced mental techniques, a limiting belief such as “I am not worth it” can now be converted into a belief “I can be myself. I’m worth it”. The impact of traumatic experiences from the past can be significantly reduced and even be removed with NLP techniques, such as Trauma Technique or NLP Timelines.

Gradually, more and more people are discovering that they are not at the mercy of their thought and feelings, but that you can influence them yourself. You just need to know how. This is what you learn in an NLP Training Course.


The training days are very diverse, as every participant is different. We usually start in the morning with the explanation of a piece of theory, which is linked to various practical examples. We then demonstrate an NLP technique or NLP skill that is in line with the theory.

Next you will work on this skill or technique in subgroups. You do this under the guidance of the trainer or one of the training coaches. This way you can safely learn and experiment!

There are many accreditations regarding NLP certificates. It makes sense, in any way, that there is recognition, because it still happens frequently that an institute is not recognised at all. Your certificate is then worthless if you want to register at another institute or a professional association.

A well-known recognition is the accreditation of the ABNLP (American Board of NLP). Such an accreditation is interesting because it is a worldwide recognition.

In the Netherlands we know the NVNLP (Dutch Association for NLP). If an institute issues their certificate under the supervision of the NVNLP, you can take it for granted that the content of this training is in order.

It is therefore advisable to take a training course at least at an NVNLP institute and preferably at an institute that has been accredited by ABNLP, if possible.

If you are nervous about taking exams, with an NLP course you are actually at the right place. After all, you learn at an NLP training how to get rid of specific fears!

Yet, we don’t have a formal exam at the end of the training, there is an evaluation during the last two days of the training. However, you cannot fail or pass based on your performance during these last training days.  It is a kind of personal reflection, so a memento for yourself!

Yes, you can! We think it is important that you can get everything possible from the training. Your life can look very different in a few years from today. Maybe you have another job, new hobbies, another family situation or new goals.

That’s why you always have the option to follow the training again. In each training group we have reserved special “review places”. You only pay for the accommodation and catering services (lunch, coffee, tea).
