Find an NLP Trainer

The ABNLP does not recommend or endorse any particular tainer or training course; nor does the ABNLP conduct any training programs. There are numerous trainers offering courses, but the standard and delivery of what is offered varies considerably. We recognise the training delivered by many trainers, but not all. Selecting a trainer is a personal thing and can be a bit of a mine field. The ABNLP recognises that and has laid down certain minimum requirements any prospective NLP student might like to consider when selecting their trainer. Our website goes into great detail as to what to look for. As you read through this page, important links can be seen. These are listed below for ease of reference:

It is appreciated that it is a lengthy process reading through and following the advice given in all these pages. However, selecting the right trainer for you is important, and, as you will appreciate, part of the process we recommend is you speaking with prospective trainers and asking them specific questions.  By following this process you will be more informed and comfortable in your final decision.

Find an NLP Trainer

The following listing comprises of NLP Members who Train NLP and meet the minimum requirements of training set by the ABNLP. They have passed through a rigorous assessment of their personal training, the training they provide and their training company. While we cannot guarantee your training, we can guarantee that all Trainers (listed below) meet the standards set forth by the ABNLP in their training curriculum and ongoing renewal requirements. For information about any training program, please contact the specific training organisation listed.

The trainers listed here who are members of the ABNLP will be tagged with their membership level and will utilise the ABNLP Registered Trainer logo on their website. When a trainer is a member of the ABNLP you know they are keeping up to date with their own learning and are involved in the NLP community in Australia.

Why choose an ABNLP Listed Trainer? Simply because you are guaranteed that your trainer has themselves learned from someone reputable and the training course meets the minimum ABNLP training requirements for the specific level of NLP you are seeking.

Throughout the world, there is no accreditation of NLP, no international board which qualifies someone as a Trainer, and very few standards which identify quality and reputable training. The ABNLP is aware of this and has chosen to change this by creating high standards which should assure potential students that their training will meet certain minimum training standards.

It is our suggestion if you are seeking NLP training to be prepared to travel to where the trainer of your choice is. NLP training is an investment in your entire life - if that means spending a little more travelling to the trainer, it will be money well spent. While most training covers the same type of information, each trainer is unique in his or her style. We invite you to contact as many trainers as you can, speak directly to the trainer and decide who fits your needs best, regardless of their location.

If you are contemplating an NLP Trainer that is not listed on this website there are a few main reasons why:

  1. They may be new to NLP training and are yet to apply to the ABNLP to become Registered Trainer Members.
  2. The course they deliver may not meet the ABNLP minimum training requirements.
  3. The trainer may not have completed a training course that meets the minimum training requirements. 

We highly recommend asking any trainer not listed on this website why they are not a recognised trainer or a member of the ABNLP.

We stress that the ABNLP does not recommend or endorse any particular trainer or training course. There are numerous trainers offering courses; the standard and delivery of what is offered varies considerably. We recognise the training delivered by many trainers, but not all. If you have any questions about a trainer or training organisation not on the ABNLP’s list of trainers please contact us at admin@abnlp.org.au and we may be able to provide you with more information.

Be sure to look for the current ABNLP Recognised Trainer Logo. All ABNLP Recognised Trainer Logos now display a validation date - membership expires in July of each year.
