Transformational journey with Terry

Terry has an amazing ability to see 'more' in each person, from the very first moment! He creates a possibility for a meaningful transformation happening in people, thanks to his professional guidance, understanding, and patience. I can highly recommend Terry to assist you on your learning journey!! :)

Terry's remarkable!

Terry is a unique and charismatic individual!

He played a very important role in my new beginning as an individual and as a professional too. He's got great love for what he does and he is super passionate about it. I have attended a couple of his courses(Prac. and Master Prac.) and i noticed how attentive towards the students and how well organised his courses has been.

With the commencement of the Prac. as well as Master Prac. courses, it felt right up my alley immediately, as i have reinforced the most functional emotions i have had already whilst i have discovered novel empowering ones.

Terry's had a catalytic effect on the shaping and expansion of the knowledge i am proud to possess, protect, practice and expand further. He is also a very down to earth individual with great insight and empathy.

Since the completion of his courses, i have seen it along the way and i can say with certainty that, i feel immensely blessed to have had the opportunity of meeting him! I highly recommend to attend his one of kind courses as well as choosing him to work with! :)

NLP intensive training week with Terry Elston

Terry brings NLP to life; The training was a truly immersive experience - learn to swim underwater with your eyes open and a whole new world becomes available to you

A review by Rebecca Luff

I trained with Terry and NLP World and highly recommend you do too. Terry’s teaching is clear and straightforward, delivered with care, thoughtfulness and humour, allowing participants to relax and our subconsciouses to do much of the work.
The ‘homework’ set prior to the course ensured we all arrived prepared, ready to deepen our understanding and gave a really helpful lead-in to what lay ahead. The face to face training days were intensive, with equal parts taught and practiced to embed our new skills, which energised rather than exhausted us. A number of generous, trained course assistants supported our learning in the training room.
I left the course with the ability to practise more confidently, with more tools and techniques, and I immediately started paying this forward in my everyday interactions at work and elsewhere. In addition, I connected with a number of like-minded people in the participants and course assistants. A mutual support relationship is developing as we grow our individual experiences. All in all, fantastic outcomes and great value!

A review by Josh Harries

Terry took me on a superb NLP journey this October when I joined him, his helpers and my fellow students on the 7 Day Intensive NLP Practitioner Training course. At the start of the course I had a few doubts, but as the week progressed those doubts were blown away like leaves on a windy day! Day 5 was "Moving Day" for me and on Day 6 the pendulum - literally - swung the other way, leaving me with the absolute certainty of the benefits of NLP to all of us and the lives we aspire to!

Not only did I absorb NLP Techniques, TBT and Hypnosis strategies, but I also cleared out a lot of problems along the way - so which I didn't even know about!

All through this, there was Terry. His delivery, excellence, experience, anecdotes course structure and content, made even this intensive training a joy to undertake. I cant remember a time when I learnt so much and had so much enjoyment doing it! Thanks to Terry I am an absolute convert to NLP and as a newly qualified Practitioner, I feel motivated to get out there and do it!

Very much looking forward to Terry's Masters Training

A review by Paul Goodwin

I attended the NLP Practitioner course, held by Terry in June 2019. The whole week was an enlightening experience and the days flew by in a delightfully intense way. The whole course was a delight and well planned and executed by Terry and his helpers. I am now booked on to do the master Practitioner course next year. 5 Stars - Paul Goodwin - NLP Practitioner

A review by Siobhan Elliot

I've recently completed NLP Practitioner and Coach training with Terry, and I'm looking forward to my Master Practitioner training with him. I've come away a different person, with a wonderful toolkit to use with my clients, and I've enjoyed seeing Terry at work. He truly is a legend. The training exceeded all my expectations, and I'd recommend him both as a practitioner and trainer in NLP.

A review by Cameron Bradley

I recently completed Terry’s NLP World Practitioner’s course in Brighton. I was expecting the course to be quite enjoyable and was fairly sure I would get a decent grip of the techniques of NLP in that coming week; enough of a grip to have sufficient confidence to the get out there and practice professionally afterwards. These expectations were quickly met and very quickly outstripped. I was surprised, and now feel very lucky to have done it. This course is an example of pure excellence achieved over years of refinement. Terry is capable of NLP "keyhole surgery" effortlessly, and his teachings whole-heartedly gives you everything to be as good as him at NLP.

I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to learn NLP and become a confident practitioner, it will end up being one of the best decisions you will ever make. This course will also aid profoundly any career I can think of. As far as day to day changes go, I now seem to interact with strangers or anyone new almost like I’ve known them for years, the response and reaction is always positive, even on the phone. I feel a lot more free.

Now, where it got very interesting for me personally here is something a bit more challenging to describe—and I’m sure I’m not alone here saying what I’m about to try to say. So, one way to put it is to say that at some point during this course something intangible begins to happen or is happening to you and continues to happen. It is something to do with the unconscious mind, with one’s unconscious minds relationship with others and with the world which is facilitated by what you are learning about as you practice programming language and neurology on this course. The different aspects or building blocks of NLP re-configure and refine you in an amazing way, it feels like a camera lens focusing on you and sharpening your image from the inside. Suffice to say, this NLP World practitioners course could also be called "meeting your magical self". To say you feel more “connected” afterwards is an understatement.

Another point worth mentioning is that Terry is a wizard of linguistic reframing, and I believe he could even help stand-up comics who want better methods to deal with hecklers (Reframing language is taught on the course and is a great skill to have). I heard reframes from Terry that encompassed all the content of the sentence reframed and returned (amicably to us, his students thank God), within one or two seconds back to sender. There is nothing left to say after the reframe. (I would love to see a non-amicable reframe from Terry in a heated debate in a pub or café, it would be potentially hilarious). Terry has a great sense of humour as well and was always very patient with us getting used to all of this huge change stuff, furthermore, he had the same high energy on the last day that he had on the first day.

I believe this course could also help high level martial artists achieve a higher level of live relaxation and fluidity through a feeling of higher connectivity as the mind/body connection becomes even more apparent throughout the week. Some might also find out it does not have to be a toilsome battle to get to those last parts as I experienced with other aspects of myself on this course. As well, healing arts that require special concentration like Reiki and Kiatsu will be given an upgrade.

Terry has a broad knowledge of different subjects and those with interest in the esoteric will even find Terry widely read in this area in a practical way, he is openly transparent on his thoughts on different topics but remains at all times impressively grounded when discussing them. You can go beyond the sky as a limit on this course if you choose to. I would even recommend this course to psychics and mediums (if I knew any) as I seem to be recommending it to everyone else I meet.

A review by Yvette Ankrah MBE

I trained with Terry on the seven-day intensive NLP Practitioner course and it was a truly amazing experience. Learning online gives you a good grounding in the topic but the practical element is transformational. Terry and his team provide a supportive environment which accelerated the learning. I have already implemented the knowledge in my personal life and am using it to transform my coaching practice.

I have not yet reviewed any books.

This is the personal page of Terry H Elston who is accredited by ANLP.

NLP World started out with a vision for NLP training and development within the UK. Wanting to get away from usual money grabbing, churn-mill ethics to something a little more intimate; something that integrated the trainings on an individual level, as well as being technically sound. Our ambition, to create a network of people rather than seeing participants as disposable commodities, is bearing fruit.

Why train with us?

We offer the highest quality NLP course at very competitive rates. We also offer a fast track approach to training which means that you can cut down the number of classroom hours. We combine this with a comprehensive pre-course home study pack, with specially designed audio CDs and DVDs containing information, theory and demonstrations of techniques, which means that students complete our NLP training with knowledge and confidence greater than most people who attend 20 day training`s. The live training for the Practitioner Training lasts for 7 days, and for the Master Practitioner Training lasts 14 days.

Here`s a short video to see us in the training room:

We also work with small group sizes. Our training`s are limited to 10-20 people which means that you will always receive personal attention from the trainer and also be closely monitored and supervised throughout the training. We have 1 assistant to every 3/4 participants, increasing your contact to the materials and concepts being put before you.

We also offer a unique continual learning and support programme. After our training`s, we invite you to stay in touch and ask your NLP related questions. We have a seminar programme that takes place one evening a month in London, where you can learn new skills, refine existing skills and ask questions. If you go on to do the Master Practitioner Training with us, you will also complete a comprehensive home study package to refine your Practitioner skills and prepare you for the Master Practitioner Training.

More training materials. These are simply the first part of our NLP training where we get you to think in the most powerful way before we even introduce the techniques of NLP.

On our training you train with Terry Elston & Adam Sprackling, leading NLP trainers who over the last 20 years has been teaching and coaching with NLP to a wide range of different clients. He often is involved in training major blue chip companies and has also worked with thousands of different clients on a one to one basis, or in training. Terry is a trainer of Time Based Techniques and Hypnosis as well as being a trainer of NLP.

He is one of the most experienced NLP trainers in the country, and is in constant demand. He is determined to make your learning experience the best possible and your training will be fun and intensive. Terry has himself trained with Tad James, David Shepherd, John Overdurf and many other respected names in NLP. He is constantly updating the NLP training with new ideas and breakthroughs, and incorporating the best techniques and approaches that he has learned in over a decade and is continuing to develop.

We believe that all work is an opportunity to develop ourselves as people. There is no activity on earth that cannot lead in some way to learning and development. As managers and leaders, we all have the responsibility to set up conditions for that to happen.

The techniques of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Based Techniques and Hypnosis are now seen as the most powerful tools around to change situations and get what you want in life.

If you don`t feel like taking a training just yet, we have also developed an array of incredible online training media products to suit your tastes.

Yet, if the question you want answering is the "who do you choose" as your provider question, then that may be answered this way; NLP World has been chosen by the Government, the MOD, the Home Office, the Education Department and many, many blue chip companies (see NLP Business Training), to supply all kinds of learning and development using these amazing techniques.

We have put together a short  movie, so you can get a taste of the kind of atmosphere you can expect!


On our trainings, you will have the opportunity to work on your own self-development as well as gaining NLP skills that enable you to get to the next level of your life.

The personal touch is what our theme at NLP World is. Our motto is "taking your training personally", that means we really do care what result you get and will do everything to ensure that it happens!

Your ability to learn and progress does not stop when you have finished the training, in fact for some, it`s an amazing start! Therefore we encourage you to stay in touch, using NLP World as a facility into the future.

One of the techniques we use are called `Submodalities` (simply the way we hold reality inside our own minds and bodies through pictures sounds etc.)

NLP World Trainer: Adam Sprackling

Who we are

Adam Sprackling has been part of the NLP World structure for many years now. His unique love of people and change-work has been part of the success that has people coming back to this company because they feel the intimate connection and the individual attention put on them. He also has a similar vision to Terry in creating an empowering network that continues even after your training ends.

At NLP World, you can begin to use this network leading you to further your business, health practice or your own personal life under the banner of excellence!

You can begin to believe that you still can get fantastic quality at a price that affords looking at very closely.

Who we are

NLP World Trainer: Susanne Billander

Susanne Billander was only 22 years old when she became a Practitioner of NLP. From a standing start, just three years later, she was training top executives in American Express and getting the highest feedback of all the trainers! Her ability to "see" the highest in people, whilst giving feedback of the top order, leaves participants lost for words as they change into the best individuals and Practitioners that they came here for.

We are a company that takes your training personally. We have all been practitioners before and sometimes there are more questions when finishing training, than there were at the beginning. That`s why NLP World is a world of resources for you before, during and after your training with us. The people here at NLP World are hand picked for their technical training abilities and personalities; and, above all, we all care! We also believe in good value. We will give you the best possible training, with the most up to date material at the least cost to you.

You have trainers here who are qualified to teach NLP to the Master Practitioner level, Master Time Based Techniques material (of which there are only a few in this country) Hypnosis (as a qualification) and also have valuable experience in Meta- Medicine techniques, for health and healing.

Here`s what a few of the people from our trainings have to say:

"In spite of my initial reservations concerning the relevance of NLP techniques to the wider business environment, this programme provided me with exposure to a range of powerful approaches that I have since successfully applied back in the workplace. I would recommend this programme to individuals seeking an opportunity to link their professional and personal development objectives. An excellent course".

Bill Phillips
Deputy Director
Department of Health

"The whole presupposition of fun and passionate belief in the material was outstanding and especially the intelligence in the delivery of the training, giving respect to the intelligence of the delegates...passion, love and respect"
Shana Dean - Legal P.A., New York

“I`ve attended a great many trainings in my role as CEO of a City Communications business and none have got close to the sequence of deep learning’s about myself I have experienced from this training. A big thank you!"
Robin Johnson - Managing Director Ovationxl executive coaching company

"This is to thank you and your team at NLP World for the past week`s training ~ words alone (in my case!) cannot express the sense of wonder that I feel at having been introduced into a wider world of thinking. As a new member of the NLP community and the NLP World family, I have a real sense of having come home, and I look forward immensely to going wherever my voyages lead me, knowing that I will always be safe and that I have a home to return to. Many thanks for all that you gave to all of us" ~
Liza Kirwan - Voyager

"Time Techniques is simply amazing! Very exciting stuff! Wow factor 10!!!"
Max Kirsten, Life/Business Coach and Clinical Hypnotherapist, London

"I loved the hypnosis part of the course. For a start, I hadn`t expected to laugh quite so much or for so long, and had also not realized that hypnosis would go so far beyond my expectations. I found it to be an immensely powerful and very gentle treatment that makes profound change possible in a short time. And besides all of this, it also feels great to be hypnotized!"
Greg Southey, IT Business Consultant, Surrey

"I`ve thoroughly enjoyed all of the training, particularly the experience of making major personal changes. I`m very very grateful; It`s been an honour to be among such a gathering!"
Sheila Morrell, Lancashire
