You don’t need to look far to see that we are in the age of self-improvement. Walk into the nearest bookshop, and you’ll see shelves of self-help books, or take to the Internet and you’ll soon find e-books and blogs dedicated to such subjects as self-confidence and motivation. All the while, sportsmen have taken on Coaches to help them clear their minds for success. But there isn’t just a craze for NLP courses in Birmingham such as those that Opt2xl (http://www.opt2xl.co.uk) offers – they’re popular because they’re actually effective.
But it’s one thing to invest in NLP training in Birmingham to improve your own life chances, and quite another thing to actually switch to a Coaching career. Why do people do it? Well, for starters, many people have life experiences that they feel could be invaluable to others, if only they could combine the lessons that they have learned and specialisms that they have developed with a professional grounding in a renowned technique, such as NLP. Indeed, even established Coaches approach us with an interest in expanding into such areas as NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnosis, and this naturally increases their options, expertise and potential earning power.
There are so many more reasons to become an NLP Coach or Hypnotherapist than mere money, however. NLP Coaching is an ever-expanding market, with the great numbers of people turning to Coaches for help with many aspects of their lives. Whereas it might have once been a leading tennis player or two who sought such cCaches, these days, everyone whether it be for Executive Coaching or Life Coaching are doing so to help them to determine the next best moves in their lives.
There’s a similar diversity in the people who seek to become Coaches themselves. Here at Opt2xl, we have people from such an astonishingly wide range of backgrounds – including business, management, sports, education, health and many more – enrolling on our NLP Practitioner Training which includes Practitioner certificates in NLP, NLP Coaching, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnotherapy. As long as you have an enquiring mind and are passionate about personal development and growth, there’s no reason why you can’t use your excellent training, support training materials and free ongoing personalised support as the starting point for a fruitful career in Coaching/Therapy. Different backgrounds help to bring different perspectives to the personal development process, and who knows, you may choose to actually go on and train the subjects yourself. You will also have our full post course support so that you can be soon be delivering your own trainings such as a hypnotherapy course in Birmingham
NLP Coaching has its own unique place in the Coaching market. Whilst traditional Coaching is purely future focused, NLP Coaching takes account of and appreciates how a person’s past has contributed to their present situation. The use of NLP and Time Line Therapy® within the Coaching process gives people very practical techniques for removing the negative emotions and beliefs that restrict them before becoming future focused to create the future that they want. This approach accelerates the change process and gives NLP Coaches a distinct advantage in the market. Self Help books, e-books and blogs are a useful source of information but they are no substitute for a face to face meeting with an NLP Coach. It all helps to make a career in this field very attractive indeed, whether you want a new rewarding career or want the flexibility to dictate your own hours and income potential or you just want to make a difference.
