Training Plan for NLP Master Practitioner training 8th to 16th November 2021

(Jump to the tutorial videos)

To get the best experience from your investment in this training, I recommend the following:

  • Watch the tutorials and join the live sessions on a desktop PC or laptop with as large a screen as possible. You might even plug your computer into your TV's HDMI or VGA input for a more 'immersive' experience.
  • Place your webcam or laptop camera close enough that you are clearly visible in the Zoom window, so that your fellow students can interact with you more easily.
  • Use high quality headphones or external speakers, as poor sound quality will adversely affect your learning experience.
  • Ensure that you are not likely to be disturbed for the duration of the training. If you do miss anything, you can watch the recording, though joining live is far better.

You can watch each day's video tutorial at any time on the day of the live session, but make sure you have watched the entire tutorial before you join the live Zoom session at the time listed below as you will be discussing it with your fellow students for the first 30 minutes of each day. Allow yourself at least an hour to watch each video - longer if you want to pause the video, take breaks and allow yourself time to reflect and make notes.

If you don't already have a free or paid Zoom account then sign up before the first session as you will need to be signed in to Zoom in order to join securely - the free account is fine for this.

The live sessions will be recorded and you will be able to access those recordings until 31st December 2021, so I encourage you to download them and store them on your computer.

A new tutorial video will appear each day.

Live sessions

You will need to give yourself enough time to watch the tutorial video before joining the live session, so I recommend starting no later than 13:00, or earlier if you want time to pause, rewind and reflect.

Join the live session at 14:00 HK time each day using this link:

The first 30 minutes will be a group discussion and reflection, based on the tutorial that you have watched.

We will take two breaks during the training session of 30 minutes each, so our schedule will be as follows:

13:00 - The latest time that you would begin watching the tutorial (earlier if you wish to give yourself time for notes, review and a break)

14:30 - Join the live call for the group reflection

15:00 - Main training session begins

16:30 - First break

17:00 - Training session resumes

18:30 - Second break

19:00 - Training session resumes

20:30 - Main training session concludes

Live session recordings

Day 1: 


Day 8, Tuesday 16 November

To discuss: What have you learned about yourself by modelling others?

Day 7, Monday 15 November - Modelling demonstration

To discuss: Discuss what you have discovered from the modelling process and how you can apply what you have learned in your own work.

Day 6, Sunday 14 November - Conflict within systems, homeostasis

To discuss: Think about times in your life when you were:

1. Receiving different feedback (perception)
2. Having a different target reference (expectation)
3. Acting with different outcomes (experience)

Day 5, Saturday 13 November - Meta Model analysis practice from coaching sessions

To discuss: How does the opening question constrain the client's response? What layers are in the client's stories?

Friday 12 November - No training today - relax and reflect!

Day 4, Thursday 11 November - Meta Model analysis practice from recordings

To discuss: What is being revealed? What would you do? What evidence do you have?

Day 3, Wednesday 10 November - Stimulus Response, TOTE, strategies, language, deep and surface structure, calibration, reference points for modelling

To discuss: Discuss what you have discovered and what it means for you and for learning NLP. In particular, think about the programs in your own behaviour, how you learned them and how they serve you.

Day 2, Tuesday 9 November - Simulation Theory of Mind Reading, maps, learning, rituals, incantations, servomechanisms, Spike Timing Dependent Plasticity

To discuss: Discuss what you have discovered and what it means for you and for learning NLP. In paricular, consider how the mind is continuously learning, whether you intend to or not. What does this mean for how we might intentionally learn?

Day 1, Monday 8 November - Welcome, modelling, talents, rules, systemic change, intention, context

To discuss: Discuss what you have discovered and what it means for you and for learning NLP. In particular think about the positive, systemic, generative nature of NLP. How does it help to understand a client's behaviour when you view them as a system within a larger system?

Video tutorials will appear here before each day's training session.

The current date/time in the UK is Friday 3 December 2021 22:56 and in Hong Kong, Saturday 4 December 2021 06:56


New tutorials will be available each day at 00:00 UK time or 08:00 HK time, which is in about 01 hours and 03 minutes



The assessment for NLP Master Practitioner comprises a modelling project, enabling you to apply all of your skills which you have developed and practiced during the training. You will select a skill or talent which you are interested in, find at least three people to interview, create a simplified model of that talent and then teach that talent to someone else. You will be very familiar with this process by the time you are ready to start your modelling project.

To make the best use of the group's time given the online format, you will conduct your main modelling project once the 8 days training have concluded, and you will arrange a date and time to present your project. Whilst there is no time limit for this, I do encourage you to do it sooner rather than later. You are given 30 minutes for your presentation, plus 15 minutes for Q&A. You will then receive individual feedback and have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the process.

All of the times for individual presentations will be shared with the group so that you can join any other presentation that you are able to. I encourage you to do this, as you will learn a great deal from each other, and of course you will be able to support each other as you reach the end of this challenging and exciting journey.
