NLP Training: How To Avoid Overwhelm & Confusion
Looking for the right NLP Training can be an overwhelming and confusing process because you don't want to get stuck with the wrong one.
And unless you are absolutely clear on what you want in an NLP Training, then it will be next to impossible to sift through the rhetoric and find the best one for you.
So, your first and most crucial step should be to make a list of what you're looking for in an NLP Training.
And, to help you clarify your purpose and reach your goal of getting the right NLP Training, we have compiled a page of the most important information to know and questions to ask here:
These 7 Perspectives Actually Spotlight The Best NLP Training When You're Struggling With Information Overload
As you will see the questions are to ask yourself and your potential trainers.
Some questions are from our own experience as NLP students, having taken over 1,000 hours of training.
Other questions arise from being NLP Trainers, teaching students from around the world, for the last 18 years. Many of those students have had experiences with other NLP Trainers as well.
And, because it doesn't matter whether you are just starting to consider NLP Training, or you're in the advanced stage of selecting an NLP Practitioner Training or NLP Master Practitioner Training, there are questions you must ask.
Or suffer the consequences if you don't.
Because most problems arise after you have paid for and taken your training. And, unfortunately, it's too late then to do much about it.
There will be some questions you may have already thought about asking. And, obviously, some very important questions you haven't thought of asking, but should.
So, to help you avoid pitfalls, and to get you the best NLP Training to suit your needs, I highly recommend reading this page:
It's always best to start your journey with the right information to make a good decision.
That way, you will feel good about learning and using NLP, which should be the ultimate goal.
Because when you continue to use NLP, you're not just improving yourself, you're helping others and making the world a better place to live. And you can't beat that for an outcome.

Presuppositions Of NLP Really Matter
Thank you for your kind feedback, I am glad that I could finish the modules, which is also a new beginning as a practitioner. As I went through more and more practices and reviews, I found the presuppositions of NLP really matters in all techniques. This year I have to take few research projects, needing to visit several countries around the world, and I think it is a good opportunity to learn what the role of cultural difference playing to the NLP. I am looking forward to taking the Master modules in the future.
Both enjoyable and practical for the students of Business Administration Financial Services
Absolutely everything was awesome! Ronda’s keynote address on “Getting Out of Your Own Way” was both enjoyable and practical for the students of Business Administration: Financial Services as they approach graduation and entry into the world of finance. The techniques introduced were practical and students have already put them to work successfully. Student feedback is extremely upbeat and positive. Thanks so much Ronda!
Tools to be more effective in living a fulfilled and happy life!
I've begun the online training for the Master Practitioner. I am now in step 7 of the first module, and I am THOROUGHLY enjoying it:)
I now realize that this program, and NLP in general, will give me not only tools to be more effective as a coach but also tools to be more effective in living a fulfilled and happy life!
Thank you for giving me access to this program for such an affordable rate!
You have found a unique way to teach through the internet, but it's not remote, it's very personal
You have found a unique way to teach through the internet, but it's not remote, it's very personal - I wish you both every success - expand and grow - I continue to benefit from the NLP training together with my Counselling Course.
I really feel like you want your students to understand and learn the material
I love the way you and Bob decided to offer your NLP training to the public. The online format is efficient and convenient to use, and there are so many extra benefits that the regular 5 day hotel seminars just don’t have—especially your one-on-one assistance over the phone and online.
I really feel like you want your students to understand and learn the material, and to be proficient practitioners. Your sincerity as people is a major plus in my opinion.
One of the turn offs I had with other programs that I had considered was that they seemed to be flashy and more focused on using NLP for selling which is fine – but I prefer your style of teaching and I get a sense that you really want this tool to be used to help people improve their lives.
I’ll recommend you highly to the people I know.
I gained self-confidence and a much better sense of self.
I had the very great fortune of deciding to study NLP in 2011. Of course, I researched a number of different trainers and was lucky enough to find Life Potential Developments. I signed up and started the training. A few modules in I panicked; the training was touching me in places where I needed healing. I was going to drop out of the training and throw my investment away.
Thank goodness Bob Clarke stepped in and recommended I move to a part of the program that would help me focus on beginning to overcome my fears and challenges and begin my own healing process.
I finished the training and gained tremendously in terms of my own mental and emotional health and really began to grow. I gained self-confidence and a much better sense of self. And, I began to see a path.
Most of all, I was prepared to begin to tackle the real challenges in my life and, as I like to say, take a hard look at my demons and stare them down. That’s when Ronda Degaust came into the picture. Through her very targeted and on point coaching, I was able to face some demons that had been haunting me most of my life.
Today, I am more confident than I have ever been. I truly like and love myself. I am healthier than I have ever been. And it just keeps getting better and better.
I am so grateful to Ronda Degaust, Bob Clarke, and Life Potential Developments for their one-on-one attention, and for how they have helped me. These words are not at all adequate. If you really want to see differences in your own life and the lives of others, this is the only place to be.
The material I learned made it so easy to feel confident
“In my quest to expand my education a really good friend recommended taking an NLP course. As I already had a background in Hypnotherapy, she said it was an amazing way to help people create change in their lives. I will be honest I had no idea what NLP was before I began my research. I started reading books on NLP and also started looking for where I could receive training. To say there are a lot of options is an understatement.
My main goal was to make sure the teaching I received was excellent so that I knew without a doubt what I was doing. As when you are working with people's lives, you want to know your stuff. I did not want to pay for just a name, which can happen in some of the training offered. So I looked at the amount of training I was receiving, and the cost. In my search, I found Life Potential Developments.
I am so very thankful I trusted my gut after looking at what others were offering this was and is a perfect fit. I took both the Practitioner and Master certification.
The material I learned made it so easy to feel confident in what I was doing. I got to connect and practice with a buddy through the Guardian Angel Forum within the training, and you can ask any question with zero judgment. You can also look to see the questions others asked and the answers from your trainer on the forum which I thought was so helpful. If I had any questions, I knew Ronda was happy to help me in any way.
I love that I can always go back and review the previous material whenever I want and as I just finished my Masters I feel so confident that I received the best training available. I also received an amazing handbook to use as a reference. I highly recommend Ronda and Bob's online course. Bob is always working to make sure the videos are working great and has just recently updated everything to make using the course user-friendly, Love the changes. May you find and know your life's potential.
I am truly thankful for all the help and support that I received from both Bob and Ronda of Life Potential Developments, are truly great people and have developed an amazing course. They go over and above what you could imagine and have a vast wealth of resources to draw from as they have been doing it for many years."
My Life Is Calmer And Happier
As always, I enjoyed the training and the time together with you both. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise in such a non-threatening and inclusive manner. I continually learn from you. I love NLP!
NLP has had a life-altering effect on me. My perceptions, reactions, and frames are much healthier. As well, my life is calmer and happier. I believe NLP (and your training) has been instrumental in my process!
Appreciated being able to learn NLP at my own pace and convenience
"Many thanks for the course. I have enjoyed learning about NLP and appreciated being able to do so at my own pace and convenience."
Your NLP training gave me a very interesting gift….
Your NLP training gave me a very interesting gift….
As you remember when I started this course my liver enzyme was~480 (target is 50), I was angry, I was always upset…
Approx 2/3 of the training I felt I was changed. I’m calmed and I focus on present and not past….and the enzyme is 100 in February!!!
Never, never was similar low value in the last 13 years….
Thank you for this chance.
I earned my NLP training certificate while sitting in front of my computer in my pajamas!
I am a spiritual counselor with temperament (inborn make-up) therapy training. Although this is an effective counseling practice, it is not enough on its own, so I began to research other areas of therapy to integrate with and enhance the counseling experience, as well as impact me personally.
About three years ago it was suggested to me that I might look into a training program called Neuro Linguistic Programming. What I found was a variety of teaching arenas; mostly live training that consisted of three to five days of teaching seminars.
Not only would it require time away from work and making arrangements for my family, but using vacation pay or losing pay, period. Not to mention that “in a city near you” was not near me and that incurred other costs for travel, hotels and meals. All that in addition to the seminar fees! If you have taken more than a glance at NLP, you will realize that there is quite a bit of information to cover in a very short period of time at these live seminars.
However, all NLP training programs are not equal.
The online course offered through Life Potential Developments is the perfect choice for me. It is affordable, has no time constraints, and is taught thoroughly and ethically. The videos are quite useful, for “visual” learners like me, and help is just a click or phone call away.
Many people speak of servant leaders and helping others achieve their goals. But few are willing to put in the preparation, time and willingness to teach NLP the way Ronda Degaust and Bob Clarke teach. They are constantly tweaking their programs for the ultimate online learning experience.
I am on my way to “communicating from the inside out.” I highly recommend learning NLP online with Life Potential Developments. After all, how many people can say, 'I earned my NLP training certificate while sitting in front of my computer in my pajamas!' ...
Having the program online was perfect for me
The quality and professionalism of the NLP Practitioner Training I received through Life Potential Developments was outstanding.
The program was thorough from beginning to end. The program gave me in-depth terminology definitions, background theory, real-life examples (video and written), strategies, exercises and Case Studies that ensured I would have the knowledge and practical application to be confident as a practitioner.
Having the program online was perfect for me. I was able to go through the program at my own pace no matter where I was physically located in the world.
I appreciated Ronda’s quick responses in both the Guardian Angel Forum and with technical support questions - helpful, courteous and knowledgeable.
I highly recommend this program for NLP Practitioner knowledge and certification.
I was in awe, about everything…The material, the way you presented it, the fluidity
I felt compelled to take a moment and praise you! I was in awe, about everything…The material, the way you presented it, the fluidity in subtle repetition throughout in different formats, the contents and full body, your level of patience, kindness and caring in the way you teach the material and in the way it is all organized! Raving review thus far, thank you. I ate it all up and couldn’t stop...Surprisingly enough, (do to your extraordinary and skillful way of presentation) I actually only had 1 question which I guess I can post on the form so it can benefit others that may have the same question.
The Most Well Formatted And Thorough Training Courses Available Today
Ronda and Bob offer one of the most well formatted and thorough training courses available today. If you're looking to dive head first into the world of NLP on YOUR schedule...this is the system for you!
Ronda and Bob are the “dynamic duo” of personal development
Ronda and Bob are the “dynamic duo” of personal development. With their guidance through the neuro linguistic process, one can assimilate and identify their own personal barriers, as well as identify the communication techniques that can help them achieve success in all aspects of their lives.
I am so glad that I decided to learn NLP online
I just completed module 1 of your NLP training and I thought it was fantastic.
I printed off all the material to put in a binder and there is a TON of content. And yet, it is easy to understand and the video presentations are really done well.
I have taught almost 30 university classes and working on my doctorate in educational leadership, and the material you put together is exemplary from an instructional standpoint.
I am so glad that I decided to learn NLP online and have the material to go over and review anything that I missed. I also previewed the next two modules and I can't wait to get into the more advanced modules and put these powerful techniques to work in my own life and the lives of my clients. GREAT JOB.
I knew from the beginning that I was choosing the right school.
You guys are great, and you teach the way I love to learn. You have a very special way to instruct your students. I felt at ease and very comfortable during the whole course. I knew from the beginning that I was choosing the right school. I am impressed with the program, it's very easy to follow. You care about your students. I am very pleased. It couldn't be better!
My family and friends noticed in me the difference in my personality
The training was excellent to me; I began to notice people's behavior in many situations, more understanding, and helping people to overcome their fear. The course made me more confident in my work as a consultant, running meetings with control and direct to the point. I am active now more than ever since I know now how humans behave.
Your fast response and support had made this course beneficial since I did not wait long for an answer. My family and friends noticed in me the difference in my personality; in fact many of them want to do the same as I did. Also, my English language got stronger now and my English reading has gotten faster per minute.
Now I understand of the process to uncover the “highest possible intention”
Before learning about NLP, I would often have staff members come to me with conflicting stories about their disagreements. I’ve had conflict resolution and mediation training and felt comfortable with the process. At least I had thought so, until now.
Since starting the NLP training, I now have tools that I can use not only to make the surface issues walk away, but also to help the staff walk away with a deeper sense of resolve. I am just 3 months into the 10 module program and already I have found some very useful tools.
I can’t wait to see the changes in my approach after the 10 module program is complete. I think to date my favorite discovery has been that with all choice there is an underlying, deeper, higher intention.
Now I understand of the process to uncover the “highest possible intention” and I know that I have the ability to guide someone through the process to look at an issue from “multiple perspectives – not just their own.
It was very personal, helpful and great fun.
Informative, learned a lot of new techniques/skills and could get rid of "old stuff", it was very personal, helpful and great fun. I'll keep a lot of pictures in mind. Thanks for all the support, input and openness.
Great work for NLP Internationally
It was my pleasure to have known both of you! Thank you for doing great work for NLP Internationally from where you are!
That was the day I set myself free…
I remember the anxiety… and I remember the fear…and I remember the resistance I felt…and the guilt that followed from not receiving what was mine all along. And then one day I decided to try something new…only because it was more convenient, and I was ready to let go…I was ready to trust. That was the day I had my phone coaching from Ronda. I learned about trust, and where my resistance came from, and within that two hours, I began to remove my past from my present, so I could just be…That was the day I set myself free…
The education I got through the training works very well in my life, and in my clinic. I wish NLP is something people can learn in their elementary school time. It is an essential part of operating life. Thank you for being out there and promoting it. Hope more and more people come to you for the light you share with them.
My NLP skills are invaluable, especially in helping raise and understand my children
Ronda and Bob are highly skilled experts in this field of NLP, skills that they have passed on to me and my other fellow coaches through trainings. My NLP skills are invaluable, especially in helping raise and understand my children. I have the confidence to manage whatever challenges my children or life presents to me. Since the beginning, my self-awareness has grown to allow me to evolve into the person that has been tucked away for so long, screaming to come out. Now, I am confident and comfortable with myself, and I know that at any given moment I have everything I need.
I`m having fun learning with co-students
Thank you for an excellent training and for the laughs and fun it has been every time we connected. Your positive outlook and professionalism have been a great motivator. I love how the on-line course allows me to take in the learnings at my own speed, and with the new possibility of finding a practice buddy online, I`m having fun learning with co-students.
You Guys are Star Trainers!
I liked every note from start to finish….of the seminar, that is! Perhaps best is this skillfully installed hunger for more NLP! You Guys are Star Trainers! I've had some trainers between here and Katmandu, none were as fine as You!
"... broadened my ability to understand and provide focused counselling support for my clients.
It is with pleasure I recommend Life Potential Developments and its NLP certification course. Even with my degree in Counselling Psychotherapy, I was delighted to find the course content and online classes were very thorough, informative and educational. It shed a deeper light on what I learned in my graduate studies and has broadened my ability to understand and provide focused counselling support for my clients. As course leaders, Ronda and Bob were and are, nothing short of excellent!
The material is easy to understand and put to use
What a wonderful program! I am so glad that I signed up for your NLP Training. The material is easy to understand and put to use. To think, I have not even finished the entire program as of yet, but it has already been beneficial in working with my clients. Thanks for all you put in to making this a great experience!
Enhanced My Ability To Coach My Salespeople
The skills and understanding obtained through Life Potential Developments' NLP Practitioner training has enhanced my ability to coach my salespeople to reduce their barriers and achieve greater success with their clients; thereby increasing revenue for all.

You have brought something wonderful to this world
I would like to thank you for this wonderful program. I've learned so much and that learning already has been beneficial to me, my family and other volunteers. I am looking forward to what it brings in the future. Thank you again. You have brought something wonderful to this world.
I´m glad that I can continue to use online material

Allowing me to work at my own pace
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to study through Life Potential Developments and thank you for your patience and understanding in answering my numerous questions along the way.
Whilst, as I have discussed with you previously it has taken me a little longer than I had originally anticipated, I am glad I have been able to really sink my teeth into this program, as part of my learning journey allowing me to work at my own pace, to ensure I grasped and further implemented the myriad of techniques offered through NLP in my personal and professional life.
Again, I would like to acknowledge Bob and yourself for the passion you consistently display around NLP and the way you are continuing to expand this important concept around the world. Keep up the great work!
Just what I needed to get me on track and keep me focused.
I knew I could be much more efficient and productive but could never quite figure out why I wasn’t doing what I knew I should and could be doing. Ronda’s coaching service was just what I needed to get me on track and keep me focused. Thanks Ronda.
For the first time in my life I finally have peace of mind
Life Potential Developments has helped me more than I can ever express. Ronda and Bob are such caring, wonderful people who want to help you live your best life. They go out of their way to guide, support and help you maximize your life potential. I really didn't know what great things were in store for my future until I worked with Ronda. She taught me the necessary tools to overcome my fears and help me push forward to live the life that I have always wanted. For the first time in my life I finally have peace of mind, and until you have it you will never know just how special that is. I am finally living the life that I have always wanted and I owe it all to Ronda and Bob for showing me the way.
More value than I expected from this training, and I had pretty high expectations
I have enjoyed every minute of this training and I appreciate the effort you have put into making it into what it is. I have received a lot more value than I expected from this training, and I had pretty high expectations.
Coaching instantly resulted in both subtle and extreme changes in my thought patterns.
Coaching instantly resulted in both subtle and extreme changes in my thought patterns. I am on a path of professional and personal success that is being enhanced through each coaching session.
I am more than happy to recommend you and your course.
I want to thank you for the prompt refund that you provided to me. As I expressed to you, the first module was very thorough and interesting, but other ventures came my way that I felt I needed to pursue. It was a pleasure to find a course and business owners that I could trust. I am more than happy to recommend you and your course.
In sincere appreciation,
Now, I am confident and comfortable with myself
Ronda and Bob are highly skilled experts in this field of NLP, skills that they have passed on to me and my other fellow coaches through trainings.

Now, I am confident and comfortable with myself, and I know that at any given moment I have everything I need.
I recommend this training to anyone - therapist, psychologist, counselor or ...
I have just begun the training and have found Bob and Ronda incredibly helpful and caring!
Though I have a Ph.D. in psychology I can already see how beneficial NLP can be in therapy - especially with abused women, PTSD patients and marriage counseling. The information given is quite good and has a great flow to it - making it easy to learn.
Some of the principles, such as communication, I had already been using and this was quite encouraging.
I recommend this training to anyone - therapist, psychologist, counselor or someone in the business field. It is very insightful and will be a great help to people in all walks of life!
They successfully prepared me for creating my own life coaching business
Life Potential Developments offers clear & concise training in NLP. The modules kept me interested and on target. They successfully prepared me for creating my own life coaching business. Bob and Ronda teach in a way that is easy for students who learn visually, auditory or kinesthetically. Feel free to go at your own pace or follow their schedule. The accreditation they provide backs up their education. Of course, they are extremely personable and professional and hands-on involved in the online training. I recommend their NLP training to anyone interested in creating a coaching career.
Such a brilliant set up of the NLP practitioner course
Can I just take this opportunity to thank you again for such a brilliant set up of the NLP practitioner course, I'm enjoying it so much and cannot wait to be qualified so I can help others achieve their inner potential.
The personal support from Ronda & Bob was amazing
Hi. My Name is Aaron from Wollongong, south of Sydney Australia, and I just received my certificates from Life Potential Developments online NLP Practitioner course.
Getting started was easy, the payment plan fit my budget; the course is the flash (video) demonstration, and presentations are great, the text is comprehensive, and above all, the personal support from Ronda & Bob was amazing.
I truly believe that I got more personal attention, and took in and understood more than I would have at a seminar, all in the comfort of my own home.
Now I have insurance, a business name, made up some advertisement material, I am ordering cards tomorrow, and am proud to say I have my first paying client tomorrow, which will make me a Professional NLP practitioner.
If your thinking about it, just do it, it will fit in with your life, then change your life.
I am so in love with this course
Let me tell you that I am so in love with this course, I know it has changed my life and will continue to do so.

This program is brilliant in its simplicity and rich in content. Thanks so much for the opportunity to learn NLP via this program. I learned so much and it was time and money well spent!
One of the greatest gifts I have given myself!
One of the greatest gifts I have given myself! This remarkable NLP online training program, and its 2 gifted coaches, Ronda & Bob, have helped guide me to personal empowerment, self-discovery, life purpose, and peace with the past.
Extremely fulfilling and the support provided ... simply phenomenal.
For years I have wanted to complete an NLP program as I knew the potential of this knowledge, so when I did my research I found that Life Potential Developments had one of the most comprehensive courses available.
The program was thorough and challenging throughout each of the modules, extremely fulfilling and the support provided from both Ronda and Bob toward understanding the concepts was simply phenomenal.
This program worked extremely well into my personal, professional and educational life (yes all at once) as there were no time constraints for completion.
As a mediator, the knowledge and techniques provided in this program are absolutely invaluable in my profession and Anthony Robbins stated it quite well: To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.
My Health Took A Turn For The Better
I worked personally with Ronda…the work she did really reinforced some changes I needed to make in my life. I can say that through the work we did together, my health took a turn for the better. I am truly thankful for her help and assistance.
I have never felt so alive, so focused and so much balance in my life
First of all I like to say what an amazing program this is!!!
I have a long way to master NLP but I have never felt so alive, so focused and so much balance in my life, so thank you very much for having such a great service online!
Both you and Bob are very inspiring people, each time I learn something new I wanted to learn more. I usually cannot wait for the next module to arrive and the flow of information works so well with the videos.
While discovering and learning NLP last year I feel that I wanted to share what I am feeling and the knowledge I have with others. It feels I have this gift and I cannot wait to share it. I am in pursuit to start my own business as a life coach very soon.
Undeniable Evidence That We All Have The Capabilities Within Us!
My experience with NLP Practitioner Training brought out undeniable evidence that we all have the capabilities within us to change our lives for the better!
Very comprehensive and helped reinforce the learning
I was very happy with the certification and how you set it up – the manuals and videos worked well with one another. Very comprehensive and helped reinforce the learning.
I haven't been pressured to finish by a fixed deadline
I just wanted to thank you once again for having put so much time and effort into such a quality product! With the payment plan and the 10 individual modules, I haven't been pressured to finish by a fixed deadline. This is the only flexible course I have found, let alone of this amazing quality.
The demos were incredibly useful for my learning

Thank you so much, I received my certificates and they are beautiful.
It was a pleasure learning from you!
I liked ... the feeling I had leaving the course.
I liked the ease that Bob & Ronda had expressing their ideas. The interaction that occurred between those participating in the course. The exercises that we brought out of the course to do at home. The feeling I had leaving the course.
