Searchable Online Profile

We know that you have great services to offer to the public, so make sure you tell them about it!

Add a link to your profile from your own website, so potential clients can verify your ANLP membership quickly and easily and be assured that they are engaging a responsible NLP professional. This simple tip makes a real difference to the client who sees that you have the Professional Association behind you.

You can edit your profile whenever you want and add those all important details to really add to your credibility and professionalism, as well as promote your services to potential clients. Tell them about:

  • What you do - paint a picture in words...Ask a friend or colleague to give you feedback, reference your media appearances...
  • Your areas of expertise/particular specialities - be specific..."Generalists seek clients...Clients seek specialists" Bev James
  • Your qualifications and experience - Mention all your NLP certifications and trainings and give depth to your expertise
  • Your upcoming courses, workshops, events, appearances, etc.
  • Your success stories and case studies - This part is crucial. Think about how you buy products and services...do you read reviews and testimonials...your clients may do this too!
  • How to contact you - Having the best profile must have a method of contact. Clients will find it less than easy to hire you unless you provide contact information.
  • Add your profile picture. This gives a visual connection for the client to make.  

You can also put your company logo for further visual impact and upload a video profile link so clients can meet you before they 'meet you'! Add your social media links so that potential clients can follow you and also experience how other people see you...

Top Tip
Please enter your Practice/Training locations in the box on the experience tab - most people searching for an NLP Professional will search by location, and completing this box is how you will get picked up in their search. Think about what others might type in as a location - will they type Hants or Hampshire, London or Finchley?

This information appears on your profile, so potential clients can see it quickly and easily.


Membership Certificate

Regardless of what level you join at, all ANLP Members receive a Member's Certificate.

You can display this Certificate in your business premises and tell clients, without even saying a word, that you belong to the Professional and Independent NLP Association and so they can read about your pledge to delivering best practice and quality NLP services.

By affiliating yourself with an external independent NLP Association, you can demonstrate to clients that you are a responsible and ethical NLP provider, linked with a professional NLP organisation who represent standards, quality and best practice in NLP.

*Please note: Associate Members may not display their Membership certificate on business premises or promote their Membership of ANLP.

All ANLP Members agree to adhere to the ANLP Code of Ethics and this is reflected in the pledge that appears on all Members certificates.

Professional - As an NLP Professional I pledge to respect and honour my ethical obligations to my clients, colleagues and the general public. I agree to comply with the ANLP Code of Ethics, and I commit to respecting the dignity and worth of every human being and modelling this code with all those that I work with.

Trainer - As an NLP Trainer I pledge to respect and honour my ethical obligations to my clients, colleagues and the general public. I agree to comply with the ANLP Code of Ethics & Trainers’ Code of Ethics, and I commit to respecting the dignity and worth of every human being and modelling this code with all those that I work with.

Accredited Trainer - As an ANLP Accredited Trainer I pledge to respect and honour my ethical obligations to my clients, colleagues and the general public. I agree to comply with the ANLP Code of Ethics & Trainers’ Code of Ethics, and I commit to respecting the dignity and worth of every human being and modelling this code with all those that I work with.

All the pledges also include:

If I breach the Code of Ethics, or this pledge, then I agree that ANLP may hold me accountable and instigate action under their Complaints and Disciplinary procedure. This action may result in the loss of my ANLP membership.


Code of Ethics

As an NLP Professional, it is essential to be able to confidently demonstrate, to existing and potential clients, your credibility, professionalism and commitment to delivering quality.

Your adherence to an Independent and external NLP Organisation's Code of Ethics demonstrates commitment to ethical and quality provision of NLP.

By holding yourself as accountable and responsible, you can gain public trust and increase client confidence in your services.

The ANLP Code of Ethics and Trainers Code of Ethics, if applicable, can be placed on your own website or within your promotional materials to demonstrate your professionalism and credibility to your potential clients.

Complaints Procedure

In the rare event that a member of the public has cause to complain about a Member’s conduct or service, the ANLP Complaints Procedure is in place to give them, and you, additional peace of mind.

In reality, over 90% of complaints that come to ANLP are about non members – which in itself says a lot about the high professional and ethical conduct adhered to by ANLP Members.

Use this to your advantage when promoting your credibility and professionalism to potential clients – when you put yourself in their shoes and are looking for a solution, they want every piece of reassurance they can get.

In the event of a complaint being raised about a member of ANLP, the following procedure will be initiated:

1.    In the first instance, the complaint will be informally reviewed and the complainant will be given the opportunity to seek either an informal solution via mediation, or to make a formal complaint.

2.    If the formal route is chosen, the complainant will be given a copy of the ANLP Code of Ethics, and the ANLP Trainer’s Code of Ethics (if appropriate).

3.    The complainant will be asked to formally submit their complaint in writing , and including reference to the specific points in the Codes of Ethics that they feel have not been adhered to.

4.    Once a formal complaint is received, one member of the independent Complaints Committee will be appointed as Chief Adjudicator for the complaint. A total of up to 3 further members of the Accreditation Committee will be appointed as the Complaints Panel. Where there is a conflict of interest between the Complainant, the Defendant, and any member of the Complaints Committee this will be declared. In the event of the Chief Adjudicator being unable to appoint 3 members of the Complaints Panel, further appointments may be made from the wider membership.

5.    The Chief Adjudicator will take appropriate steps to gather evidence and reports from all parties involved.

6.    Once this has been done, the Chief Adjudicator will then correlate all information and prepare a report for the Complaints Committee who will make the relevant decision and whose decision is final.

At all stages of the procedure, ANLP will encourage and support any appropriate action to resolve the dispute, and the Chief Adjudicator or another representative of ANLP may be prepared to act as a Mediator, in order to resolve the complaint.

All members of ANLP fall within the boundaries of the impartial and independent ANLP complaints procedure, which is in place to safeguard both ANLP members and the public.
