A review by Linda Hamilton-Ross

Terry is an NLP trainer extraordinaire. There is something of himself that he puts into his courses that makes an enormous difference. It's impossible to identify what exactly it is but then I feel if we could name it or bottle it we might lose the magic of it.
He's confident in his knowledge, ability, understanding and experience so you don't get a one size fits all course syllabus. You are taught what Terry believes to be special, not just useful. His masterful command of the learning space draws out of every student behaveiour beyond what we normally ask of ourselves.
I wouldn't go to anyone else for NLP learning. Never. Once experienced forever attached.

A review by Darren Diprose

I worked with Terry recently when qualifying as a NLP practitioner. His ability to hold himself in the present and create a safe space for within which change can occur is incredible. He touched me on a deep level and i felt like i had experienced a change on a fundamental level which has transformed me. He is an incredible trainer and practitioner and anyone who is looking to work with him is very lucky indeed.

A review by Amanda Burbidge

Having recently completed the 7 intensive days in NLP training with Terry, I can truly say the learning has been transformational for me. Additionally this learning has been integrated into my private practice to great effect, particularly the coaching and Hypnotherapy aspects, which have enabled a number of clients to move forward in life enhancing ways. Many thanks Terry.

A review by Matt Price

I recently completed the nlp practitioner course with Terry and NLP World. Let's just say it's been one of the most transformational seven days I've ever experienced.
Admittedly, at times it was tough though, to break through and achieve not just a certificate, but also a new way of being has been worth a thousamd times more than the cost of the course.
What's more, I now have gained the skills to assist others on their journey and that is such an honour.
Thank you Terry and team. I look forward to learning from you all on the master practitioner course.

A review by Lynne Plaza

Initially I enrolled on Terry's NLP practitioner course for personal gain, having followed links and read many excellent reviews. I thoroughly enjoyed the pre-course online work, which challenged my thinking even before I attended the course.

Throughout the week, it became more and more evident just how life-changing the experience was becoming for me and the other attendees. With Terry's expert training, guidance and encouragement from the amazing team, I not only underwent personal paradigm shifts, but also, and more importantly, I began to feel compelled to use these newfound skills to help others.

Terry's compassion and energy throughout the training was tangible; we soon became immersed fully into the programme and eager to work with each other, with mutual trust quickly established.

Terry's training was superb: all encompassing, taking each of us through an emotional journey, and empowering us individually to go on to make positive changes in our lives.

A review by Kate Ryley

I recently attended the 7 day Practitioner course and I didn''t want it to end! I loved Terry's relaxed, engaging, passionate, fun method of teaching and I was in awe of the inspiring NLP and hypnotherapy talent he demonstrated to us all throughout the week.

The course was so much more than I'd expected (the manual is really just the start) because Terry taught us everything we needed to practice NLP successfully - the detail of what really works and also what does not, with an emphasis on ensuring that we left the week with usable, practical skills in place.

I cannot overstate the life-changing nature of the personal transformations I experienced and also how good it felt to facilitate breakthroughs for others during our practice sessions - it is amazing stuff!

Terry and the whole team from NLP World are masters of their craft, supportive, professional and caring - truly lovely people. After the course, I immediately signed up for the Master's training and it can't come soon enough!

A review by Kelly Pang Oke

I’d done a lot of research before parting with my hard earned cash. I’m so glad I made this investment. The NLP Practitioner course with Terry at NLP World has changed my life! I’ve busted personal limiting beliefs and now have the skills and qualifications to help others shoot for the moon.

The online pre-requisite training is of the highest quality in terms of visual, audio and content. Terry is knowledgeable, experienced, engaging and funny! I found myself wanting to stay up late to move on to the next unit most nights.

The 7 day classroom training is very well structured; mixture of teaching delivery by Terry, demonstration and then practice. Our class size was 10 delegates, which allowed for everyone to have personal engagement and ask questions at any time. Great teaching assistants also supported us and the training manuals are spot on! It helps that all delegates must have completed the online training and passed the tests so we were at a similar level of understanding and commitment before attending.

I’ve met some amazing people and made lifelong friends. I’m so happy to be part of the NLP World Family and recommend the training as well as Terry’s expertise to everyone!

A review by Fiona Stimson

Well what can I say, I took the NLP Master Practitioner Course with Terry in March and it was phenomenal!
I have always taken a keen interest in self development and was really excited about what Terry offered, from the get go he was warm, welcoming and as I said to him at the time, he really had the 'human touch' compared to all the other providers. He was really interested in what I was looking for and needed as outcomes for my learning.
The course material was great and it all interlinked in a truly special way, my brain just sucked it all in and I experienced such powerful transformation, learning a lot about myself and others, I am truly thankful and it has led to many more exciting opportunities as a result.
I am looking forward to continuing my journey of mastery with Terry and would thoroughly recommend him as someone with a great deal of integrity, a great trainer, presenter and inspiring human being.
All in all, a fabulous experience- thanks Terry!

A review by Benjamin Morton

When I think of Terry I smile.

A great trainer, a great teacher and a great mentor.

I had the privelage of spending a week with Terry on one of his practitioner courses and like all attendees had a wonderful time a proper course that was enjoyed by everyone.

His knowledge and teachings are second to none.

if you are looking for a trainer or coach for your business or personally then look no further.

A review by Simon Walker

Terry's training is the best training I have ever been on. His attention to detail, flow and pacing in the classroom and inclusivity of absolutely everyone makes for a magical environment where change inevitably happens. I consider Terry's training as more than just personal development - it is life changing development. His support at every step of the way is faultless, his materials exceptional and his knowledge incredible! I have successfully changed careers and could not have done it without the excellent training that I have received. His examples and work in the classroom have been an absolute privilege to be a part of.

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. We can do this by putting any profits right back into training, development and research, and as one of our business delegates said, "making this the place where you`ll find the most updated concepts and training styles in the country".

This is what you should expect to find from participating in our trainings:

* Quality up to date material
* Excellent Trainers
* Fully certified courses backed by the ANLP in
the UK and ABNLP in the US
* Individual Coaching before, during and after the
* Incredible growth and results in your personal
and professional life
* Appropriate classroom sizes with one assistant
to every three/four delegates

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
