Certification Testimonials

Hear from some of our past students:

I attended Hugh Comerford’s NLP training in the Spring of 2012. I did not arrive as a beginner – I had gotten my NLP practitioner and Master Practitioner certification 30 years ago, studying with John Grinder, Richard Bandler, Leslie Cameron-Bandler, Robert Dilts, David Gordon, Steve & ConnieRae Andreas, Steven Gilligan and others. I have a 3 foot long shelf full of NLP books and another just like it nearly full of Milton Erickson books. I hadn’t been actively using NLP for most of most of the intervening years and I felt I needed a good refresher. I found other offerings in the Toronto area but they seemed unconscionably short – at 18 days, Hugh’s training struck me as sufficient time to cover what needs to be learned to be able to actually do the basics. What I expected was a refresher. What I got was a whole new training!!

…………………….

There are clear connections with the material I learned 30 years ago, but Hugh packaged it very differently and NLP really has evolved since its early roots. I liked his teaching approach – there were a series of exercises that we did every day to lock down basic skills. The whole program was basically –

a) here are some things that you can do,

b) now let’s dig deep and find out how and why they work,

c) now here are some more powerful processes that you can run which you couldn’t have run until you mastered the ‘simple’ ones.

An understanding of perceptual position, especially the way Hugh teaches it, is vital to being able to structure interventions and understand patterns of behaviour. The training is powerfully experiential – when you finish, you can actually do change work. Virtually all of the processes were new to me and powerful. I found myself putting them to use immediately – on myself, with friends and clients. – Bruce Anderson, Toronto

“As a 16 year old in high school, I was constantly tormented and bullied by a group of girls, I use to call friends. I have held onto the pain and emotions around that experience for 11 years. During that time, I went to see a psychologist but wasn’t able to speak to her about the situation, it just seemed to bring more energy around such a negative experience. In Hugh’s NLP course, he asked for someone who had a state they never wanted to re-experience and I took a huge chance and volunteered for him to work me through this issue. After a 15 minute demonstration of the process I felt amazing, a huge weigh was lifted off my shoulders, I saw the world completely different, I was no longer afraid or vulnerable. I can now think of that situation without pain or anger. It’s as if I can walk down a busy street and not feel a constant fear of people walking by me.”  -Shannon Course Participant May 19, 2013

I came in expecting personal change. What I didn’t expect was to receive it on the 3rd day!! Thanks so much!!! – Course Participant June 9, 2012
