I've got my certificate now what do I do?

For some, making the transition from practicing NLP in the comfort of a training venue to ‘out there’ in the real world is a daunting prospect.   Working with other delegates who have some knowledge of NLP is much easier than being in the big wide world listening to someone who has a real problem and no idea what NLP is or how hypnosis works.

The question I am asked most frequently usually begins with, “I have a client with x and I have tried y and it didn’t work, I don’t know what to do now, I’ve tried the “name of technique” and the client is just stuck, what do you suggest my next move is?”

Frequently, my first reply is based on something I learned during my Practitioner and Master Practitioner courses, Richard Bandler said: “there is no such thing as a resistant client”.

As NLP Practitioners we all know that our state drives our success.  When you become stuck, consider checking that you have the most beneficial state to work with your client.  Is your inner dialogue yelling “Its not working, its not working”, or something equally unhelpful. Are you making pictures of failed outcomes, or allowing yourself to sink into a feeling of despair or panic? Remember, “go there first, get your own state under control”.

Now, have you really heard what your client said?

Just recently at the last Practitioner and Master Practitioner in London Richard Bandler said there were no correct techniques to use only those that worked.  That by paying attention to the person in front of you, you will notice what is needed as they will tell you.

Do you know what they want, what is their desired state, what will be different as a result of achieving this desired state?

Does your client understand what is being asked of them? 

Whilst viewing sessions conducted by newly qualified practitioners I have witnessed a complete lack of understanding between Practitioner and client.  One example of this is where the practitioner says “I’m just going to anchor that for you”, and the client wonders if they’re seeing your for coaching or about to embark on a cruise?  Keep your explanations simple.

So many people once they have attended their NLP training wonder what to do, how do they put it all together?

In 18 days in Londons Docklands you have the perfect opportunity to learn how to put it all together.
