I thought I’d post the programme details for the Skype course that’s just started. Anyone wanting to join can do so and I will go through Module 1 again for the newcomers to the course before Module 2 takes place on Wednesday 12th.
INTRODUCTION TO THE NLP (COMBINED) KIDS PRACTITIONER COURSE
Hello, welcome to the NLP Kids Practitioner Course.
This course is for students who do not already have an NLP qualification. We usually enjoy a combination of parents, teachers, social workers etc who have a mixture of other similar qualifications and / or lots of hands on experience of parenting or working with children. This course is not suitable for anyone who has no access to children with whom they can practice the techniques learnt on the course.
I want to make it clear that ANLP do not recognize Distance Learning Courses so you cannot be accredited by them based on this course. Instead the skills and techniques, knowledge and learning you pick up should be used in addition to your other skills.
I am a qualified NLP Trainer and trained with Sue Knight: NLP Trainer, NLP Business Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner. I qualified as an NLP Kids Practitioner with Gemma Bailey of NLP4Kids and with Jeremy Lazarus in NLP Sports Practitioner. So there are elements of these NLP gurus in my delivered course along with other exemplars whom I have studied with over the years. I also add a huge amount of my own experiences as an NLP Coach based on working with children and teenagers regularly and from workshops and talks. I also learn a lot from my students of course.
There are usually about 6-8 students per course, often from around the world so we get an exciting mix of cultures which makes for interesting discussions and experiences. Using the webcam we can see each other and this makes it easier to ask questions, comment and share views. It really feels like an International classroom. I use Skype and send the link each week for you to join the class.
There will be 12 taught Modules as follows:
Module 1 – NLP Presuppositions. The essential ingredients of change. How to use the presuppositions in therapy with children and teenagers. How to apply them in your own life.
Module 2 – Well-formed outcomes/ compelling visions. Transferring skills. Working with confidence. Technique: Circle of Excellence
Module 3 – Logical Levels of Change. Overcoming Limiting Beliefs. Recognising and challenging them in ourselves and in our child clients. Technique: Time Line.
Module 4 -VAK and the Meta Programmes. How to put these into practice to build rapport and achieve great communication with the children we care about. Technique: Matching
Module 5 – Modelling. How to acquire someone else’s skill for oneself and show your kids how to do it. Technique: Modelling
Module 6 – The power of effective feedback. Reframing. TOTE. Technique: Perceptual positioning.
Module 7 – The Drama Triangle. Recognising the victim, rescuer and persecutor positions and how they interact. Stepping out of the Drama Triangle and taking responsibility for our actions.
Module 8 – Metaphors. Clean Language. Indirect questioning. Technique: Disassociating
Module 9 – State Management. Mind and Body connections and how to use physiological change to lead mental change and vice versa. Technique: Anchoring
Module 10 – Self –esteem. Acknowledging skills and qualities and teaching others to recognise theirs. Focus on what’s working and learn the structure so you can apply it again.
Module 11 – Fears and Phobias. Learning Difficulties. Technique: SWISH, Submodalities
Module 12 – Launching your business, workshop programmes, website, blogs, marketing
Each Module will start with general feedback on the last week’s homework. Then I deliver the content of the Module and we discuss it and I answer your questions. Then I will tell you what this week’s homework is. You do the homework, ideally that week and send it to me for feedback. I give you individual feedback by email. Some homework will be posted in the student group so you can see your fellow students’ work and benefit from giving and receiving feedback.
The sessions are recorded so I can send you the recording as well as the written notes after the session to help you with homework. I will incorporate into the course input from other leading NLP practitioners who have specialist knowledge on learning difficulties, bedwetting, behavioural difficulties etc
Homework will not be arduous! I’m looking for engagement with the content, thoughtfulness as to how you will apply it and something added by you at a personal level based on your own knowledge and work with children. If you miss the session you will still get the notes but if homework isn’t done and sessions are missed don’t expect to get the certificate. If there is a problem, illness or whatever then I may agree to let you move onto the next course without paying again.
You can SKYPE me at any time (judy.bartkowiak) to discuss the course content or any problems you are having with your assignment.
Final Presentations. These will be individual 30 minute presentations on one element of NLP with Kids. You can choose what age group you want to focus on for the exercise and/or what issue. You need to be rock solid on the techniques and skills and show that you can pass these on to us as a model.
The course fee is £650 if you pay by installments and £550 if you pay upfront. Please pay direct into my bank account. There are no guarantees that you will pass. It is up to you to do the work.
When you pay the deposit of £150 (or the full amount of £550) I will send you a copy of
and invite you to join the student group on Facebook where you can start to network with existing and past students and have access to their final presentations and other material I post for the course. I expect to see you giving and receiving feedback during the course.

If you are interesting in the course but can’t afford the time at the moment or can’t join either of the sessions because they aren’t convenient let me know and I can set up another time that works for you if I have enough students. Or you could buy the books and read through the material yourself.
