NLP Certification and Registration

NLP is not formally regulated, controlled or accredited by any official UK organisation. Many NLP practitioners advertise themselves as being "fully accredited and approved" by this organisation or that association or whatever. This makes for good marketing, as the potential client keen to be cured of their psychological ill is usually naive to all of this and is readily impressed by the cunning use of logos and impressive names.

If you know of another that isn't included, please email me:

If you have any expeirence with any of these groups, good or bad, I'd love to hear of it! I shall leave it to the reader to decide which ones have validity and which ones are merely milking the cash cow.

I'll give the reader a clue - check carefully who owns the organisation and who is merely making a name for themselves by owning a "board" or whatever.
