The Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming

was established in 1978, by NLP Co-Developers, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, as the official certifying body in the field of NLP.  If you are interested to find out more about the current status and ownership of the Society, read on.

It has been my pleasure, as a NLP Meta-Master Trainer and an Owner of the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, to have certified a select group of  individuals as NLP Trainers.

Certification as a NLP Trainer is not simply granted for attending a trainer training. The process of fulfilling the requirements for certification as a NLP Trainer is an intensive process that continues after Trainer Training, which includes gaining additional experience in the teaching of NLP, at least 9 days of training in Hypnotic Patterning (with an emphasis on Ericksonian Hypnosis), serving as a Resource Assistant in Practitioner and Master Practitioner training (many Trainers have also served as a Resource Assistant in Trainer Training), a written test, and submitting a video tape.

The following individuals have demonstrated their ongoing dedication and commitment of motivation, curiosity, time and resources to increasing competency and generativity for themselves and others.

Trainers names are listed by country, including the date certified as a NLP Trainer, City, website and/or email address, as well as a short description of the focus and purpose of their work, written by the Trainer.
