The outlook for an NLP Practitioner is to keep practicing. Conscious Solutions NLP Practitioner trainings come along with 2 to 3 monthly Internships in which students from various NLP Practitioner groups study together. The purpose of internships is to download all concepts and skills, which means actively applying techniques, practicing the language models and implementing the interventions.

At the Practitioner level, participants should be able to demonstrate a fundamental ability to utilize the basic concepts, skills, processes/techniques and patterns of NLP. It is important that Practitioners understand and appreciate NLP as more than only a set of techniques.

The NLP Co-Developers have always emphasized that NLP represents an approach, an attitude and a methodology supported by a major set of operational presuppositions, values and modelling skills that have produced very effective techniques.

  • Representational Systems:
    • Detect representational systems and sequences of representation systems through the accessing cues of the primary sensory modalities (VAKGO)
    • Make sub-modality distinctions in all primary representational systems
    • Re-sequence habitual representational system sequences
    • Demonstrate the ability to access information in each of the primary sensory systems
  • Rapport-building: Establish rapport (pace and lead) in all representational systems, non- verbally and verbally, through mirroring, direct matching and indirect matching, using the following:
    • Whole and part body postures, gestures and facial expressions, eye accessing movements
    • Intonation pattern (e.g., tone, tempo, volume)
    • Breathing pattern
    • Predicates
    • Sub-modality accessing cues
    • The language patterns of the Meta Model and the Milton Model
  • Anchoring:
    • Elicit and install anchors in primary representational systems (in particular; visual, auditory and kinaesthetic)
    • Utilize basic anchoring principles and formats/techniques; directionalize and contextualize “resources” via basic anchoring formats, including, stacking anchors, amplifying anchors, collapsing (synchronizing) anchors, chaining anchors (i.e., sequencing responses), change personal history, the Phobia Cure), and future-pacing.
  • Language Patterns: Detect and utilize the linguistic distinctions of the Meta Model and the Milton Model as information-gathering and information-organizing tools.
  • Outcome Framing: Elicit well-formed and ecological outcomes/goals, including the set of distinctions called the well-formedness-conditions; utilize Backtrack, “As-If,” Relevancy and Ecology Frames.
  • Reframing: utilize basic reframing techniques, including, Content and Context Reframing; Reversing the Behavioral Presupposition; 6-Step Reframing Procedures; Negotiation models (including the Visual Squash).
  • Sub-Modalities: Learn, access and practice the basic patterns of sub-modality elicitation and shifting.
  • Interventions of the 5-Day NLP Practitioner level: Changing States of Mind, Anchoring, The Swish Pattern, The Visual Squash.

NLP Practitioners should begin and practice the process of internalizing and integrating the NLP Presuppositions and all learned skills into their thinking and behavior and to additionally develop greater flexibility in thinking in ways that open up new avenues of discovery, learning, creativity and change for themselves and others.
