Questions to ask yourself

Think about the following questions yourself, before committing to working with an NLP professional:

  • What do I want to achieve from this consultation?
  • How will I know that I have achieved this?
  • Would I be comfortable working with this NLP professional?

Questions to Ask an NLP Professional

  • What certifications do you have?
  • How did you obtain your certifications? NB If they say online, please look for another NLP professional, who has experience of being trained by real people, who can evaluate their competence!
  • How many practice hours do you undertake each year?
  • When did you qualify?

  • What experience and expertise do you have that is relevant to my particular ‘problem’?
  • Do you have insurance?
  • Do you have any testimonials or recommendations from other clients? Can I see them? Can I talk with one of them?
  • What Professional Body/Governing Organisation(s) do you belong to?
  • Do they have a Code of Ethics that you abide by? You can then check with the Organisation to verify this information.
  • Where are you based?
  • Are you able to offer consultations in other areas?
  • How long is a session and how many sessions may I need?
  • What happens about cancellations or missed appointments?
  • How much do you charge? Is this per session, per hour?
  • Do you offer a free initial consultation (either over the phone or in person)?
  • What if it ‘doesn’t work’?
  • Will we have a contract?
