The Meta Mirror (NLP Certificate Course - Session 10) (Pre-Recorded)

Pre-Recorded Seminar

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Certificate Course

The Mother of Family Therapy, Virginia Satir; The Father of Gestalt Therapy, Fritz Perls; And the prominent psychiatrist, Milton Erikson, were studied to determine why they were the best in their respective field.

Common patterns in both language and thought were found, and this was the start of an organized body of knowledge that has been used by millions of clinicians, throughout the world, as adjunctive treatment. In terms of its adjunctive psychotherapeutic use, NLP has been validated and recognized by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.

This is the tenth session in the 12-Session NLP Certificate Course.

You will then learn adjunctive tools to help you get unstuck when the more known evidence-based and traditional treatment modalities fail to work.

There are NO CEUs attached to it.

This Certificate Course is intended only for clinicians who are motivated enough to learn these new skills that may become readily handy when least expected.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the scientific validity for NLP?
As an adjunct to therapy, NLP falls into the same category as psychoanalysis, Intermittent Fasting, or EMDR. This means it is not considered an evidence-based practice like CBT, where at least a thousand of well-designed studies have been done and replicated throughout the world. Having said that, most of the best CBT practitioners also make use of many of the NLP techniques.
Do I need to attend all 12 weeks in order to get my certificate?
Yes. If you missed a week, you must do the self-study (recorded) webinar prior to attending the subsequent week. Otherwise, you risk accumulating gaps, which may, in turn, lead to an inability to use this adjunct model adequately to help your clients. You will therefore not be able to receive a certificate.
Can I start this Course even after it has already started?
Yes. If you register after this Course has already started, you must agree to watch all the self-study (recorded) classes before you attend your first live class. Otherwise, you will likely be unable to understand the concepts presented, and you will therefore not be able to use them to properly help others.
Are there any other requirements to getting a certificate besides completing each and every one of the 12 classes?
No, but we ask that you fill out an evaluation for any sessions completed as self-studies, so that we may verify and track your completion of those sessions.
What are your reimbursement policies?
Anyone who registered for this Course through any of the three payment plans, and who wishes to withdraw, for whatever reason, is entitled to a reimbursement, with no questions asked other than for improvement purposes. The reimbursement will be minus the price of each single webinar attended by the date of wish to withdraw.
Is this NLP Certificate Course at No additional cost for all SWEET Members?
Yes, the SWEET Institute pledges to make all courses available for free to all members who have continued to maintain their membership. We ask members to please not pay for the Course to avoid the use of resources required in the reimbursement process. If you are a member and are having difficulties to register for free, please contact us.
Does this Course offer CEUs?
No. Our other Certificate Courses do.
