The Language of Healing and Health

Become a certified Society of Medical NLP Health Practitioner in just seven entertaining and enlightening days!

For the first time ever, the Society of Medical NLP and CMIR have come together to present a groundbreaking new training specifically tailored for acupuncturists and complementary therapists. Also suitable for clinicians and other medical professionals. This is a unique opportunity as a complementary practitioner to train directly with the creator and developer of Medical NLP and the co-founders of The Society of Medical NLP and authors of the best-selling book  'Magic in Practice: Introducing Medical NLP … The Art and Science of Language in Healing and Health'.

Learn how to:

  • acquire explicit new techniques to approach a wide range of complex, chronic conditions
  • improve clinical outcomes in your own field
  • enhance existing skills and integrate them seamlessly with all specialities
  • reduce and resolve stress (both patient and practitioner) 
  • master the language of hypnosis and indirect influence
  • orientate patents towards healing and health
  • create your own, unique techniques for lasting change
  • optimise time you spend with clients
  • reduce risk and increase patient satisfaction

… and much more

This training will also provide a much-needed bridge—a common language—between complementary and alternative practitioners and their allopathic counterparts.

What is NLP?

NLP, the acronym for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is often described as “the study of excellence”. Created and developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s, it sought to identify and replicate the behaviour of highly successful people, specifically in the fields of psychology, business and sport.

What is Medical NLP?

Medical NLP, now recognised by Dr Bandler and his Society of NLP as a discrete field in itself, developed out of a growing concern with the difficulties faced by mainstream medicine to deal with the flood of complex, chronic conditions that failed to respond to conventional, and even many alternative, treatments. Around 40% of conditions for which patients consult medical practitioners have no specific cause.

Until now, participation in Medical NLP training has been restricted to allopathic doctors, allied health professionals and trainee doctors. This course opens the door, for the first time in the world, to complementary and alternative medical practitioners with a view to sharing the knowledge and clinical experience of the creator and developer of Medical NLP, as well as that of hundreds of health professionals who have been using the principles and techniques of Medical NLP in the field for more than 20 years.
