  • Part One: New Code NLP for Coaching Excellence

    11 – 18 May 2025
    with John Grinder, Carmen Bostic and Michael Carroll


    New Code NLP underpins this course incorporating models which provide rapid and lasting change in clients. In the New Code NLP for Coaching Excellence Module, you will be immersing yourself in some of the most change processes for personal evolution available.


    NLP was the original coaching model with the first model ‘the meta model’ as a tool for directing attention to different aspects in the client’s map. NLP rapidly grew as a system for enabling anyone to have more choice in life. Coaching is about creating choice where previously choices were lacking. In this course you will learn tools to help yourself and your clients experience more choice in life.


    New Code NLP emerged in NLP in the post Grinder / Bandler years, developed by Grinder and Bostic to provide a radical framework for a more efficient form of NLP. New Code NLP utilises optimised states in the change process and formats to ensure personal congruency in clients to leverage deep and lasting change in accordance with their target.

    A unique element to the International Coaching Certification is the specialist coaching models you will learn from John, Carmen and Michael who have developed these processes from their extensive experience in their own coaching practices. The Specialist Coaching Models integrate Classic and New Code NLP patterning and will give you a structure for coaching your clients that is different from anything out there in the coaching world.

    New Code NLP is constantly developing and you are assured of the latest coaching models. In recent years, John Grinder has developed new coaching models, known as Emergent New Code NLP, which he will be sharing for the first time in this course.


    The evaluation day takes place on the 19 May 2024 where participants will participate in a series of practical exercises to demonstrate their skill and competency on what was covered during the course.
