Imagine when you hire someone for coaching, what are your expectations? You want them to fix your problems? Help you get unstuck, move forward, and get back in control?
Now swap seats and see yourself as a coach. The clients who come to you will expect you to do all this for them, will want to be able to trust and rely on your expertise. So there’s no way around it: you have to be confident and competent enough to help them get results.
How would you rate your confidence and competence at this point?
This is why in our Coaching Certification programme, the focus is on quality: there’s a lot of deep practice, drills and you have real life coaching cases where you help others with their outcomes and also work on yourself to develop inner alignment and get to the point where you can authentically rate yourself as a Competent Professional Coach.
It’s a confirmation of your identity and competence—of the hard work you’ve put in, practice after practice, feedback after feedback. When you work with people, you bring in the highest standards of your training, experience, presence, energy - all to support your client.
Already an NLP Practitioner or Master Practitioner from Mind Transformations? Get in touch with us to find out what are the steps left for you to become a professional coach.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a very practical brain science that helps people derive formulas—why and how we do what we do, and how to improve our results. NLP will give you a very robust and penetrative framework for looking into peoples’ invisible formulas, determining why they can’t get the results they want, and designing effective coaching interventions to improve their situations.
This entire NLP course is conducted with our unique training methodology called the Competency Building Framework (CBF). You’ll go through a step-by-step well-designed process of picking up NLP & Coaching skills, practise the skills thoroughly to provoke feedback, and then build on other skills, layer by layer.

Just by completing your NLP certifications, you’d already be able to coach people confidently.
The Practicum requires you to go through at least 60 hours of class facilitation and coaching, under the supervision of the Master Trainer. There are 6 specific Key Competencies that you must show in terms of how you coach people to get results.
If you are good at asking questions, can analyse problems logically, and you know many coaching techniques, you may be able to get results with some clients. But these hard skills, the science of coaching, are not enough to make you a remarkable coach.
The Art side of coaching refers to the soft skills–the micro decisions about how much to push a client, how much to hold back; what to say, when to keep silent, how to empower each individual differently based on their needs, etc. These are matters of finesse that are acquired with practice and for which there are no hard and fast rules, nor measures. Combined with hard skills, this is what will separate you from an average coach; this is what will make your coaching effective and life changing.
Skills are half of the equation, and you are the other half. Through our rigorous NLP Training and Coaching Certification process, you work on the issues you have, the misalignment that undermines your confidence as a coach. Your experience in transforming your problems will serve as a strong anchor, a resource for working with others.
Like a Master Swordsman who becomes One with his sword, when you become One with your coaching skills, you are able to trust yourself to go with the flow, you are at ease and natural. When you feel it from within, when you comfortably take on the identity of a Professional Coach, without blinking an eye - you’ve arrived.
Start your journey with the NLP Practitioner Certification.
Next Coaching Practicum starts in October 2017. Only 12 pax per intake.
Executive & Life coach
“Many of my clients are entrepreneurs or international executives in life or career transition. In my practice, NLP capabilities expand my range and capacity of intervention as a coach tremendously.
For the coachee, NLP is like a GPS Mind-body Application, which allows me to make the best possible use of who I am in service of what I really want to achieve.
The power of NLP comes alive by helping my clients discover what is - really - in their way to be overcome. The more we leverage on the mind-body connection, the more empowered we will be to follow through with whatever project we undertake.”
“Barney is a world-class NLP expert and coach whose courses have helped me enrich and deepen my coaching skills.
Having an 8-year experience as a coach, I’ve learned through this NLP training that true understanding of human beings is one of the keys to success in coaching.
NLP from Barney is unlike other classes of NLP that only come with techniques; it helps you build the so precious and needed awareness and gives you all the fundamentals of human understanding. My coaching has been transformed!”

"This course is 70% practical and allows you to acquire NLP and coaching skills through in-class activities. You get the first-hand experience of the coaching skills before you use them on others. There are too many skills and knowledge learnt in 12 days and is just not possible to share all the good stuffs I took away. Therefore, I would like to sum up in the 3Cs which I found are key to my coaching : Conversation, Consciousness & Compassion."
Barney developed the “Conversation Framework” which was so useful in promoting understanding and leading to a desired outcome. The impact on visualization is powerful. Changing our conversation will change our perspective and change the outcome which is positive and we do this through using various communication skills such as leading & pacing, mirroring, Meta Model (Precision Questioning) & Chunking, etc. The skills of coaching is the power of leading an impactful conversation.
Self-Mastery through intention setting and self-acknowledgement is what we do in class every start and end of the day. We trained ourselves to develop good routine which is key to an improved quality of our life at work and at home. The more we know ourselves, the more energy and power we have inside us to face the challenges ahead. NLP Presuppositions once internalize will help create awareness of our own beliefs that promotes growth & change. Self-Awareness is the ability in attaining ONE body & mind and it is through our behavior that people reads our intention. NLP is about modeling and to be great leaders and coach, we must model for others.
Coaching requires not just skills alone but also a heart with compassion to listen, adjust our entire mind and body to understand coacher’s challenge. The desire to empowering them to deliver answers from their own perspective. Is about bringing the “possibilities” inside them and making them feel good about themselves. The humility part is a pre-requisite to an effective coaching.
When my classmate use collapsing anchors on me in changing my negative state to a positive state. I wanted to be calm when things do not work out right or when people do not give their best to their work. I usually get upset and raise my voice and amazingly, I found myself so calm and embrace mistakes as lesson subconsciously. The good thing is I felt very good about this positive state and was able to bring my relationship with the team closer.
Nevertheless, if you want to change your life or life of others, NLP can help you achieve your goal! Thank you Barney for his very interesting, fun and novel way of training NLP!
