NLP Sport Practitioner Certification - taught by Sport Professionals and creating excellence


No one understands what it is like to compete until they have been there.

Many courses offer mental sport instruction run by people who have never competed. This is where we are different

We prove it - not theorise


We were the original creators of NLP in Sport courses in the UK, the USA and in Nepal with the Olympic Team. We are still the only company who has trainers who are not only highly qualifieid Trainers but also professional competitive sports people. We work with individuals and teams to find their ultimate potential, overcome problems and regain motivation and that burning drive which we all had at one time and sometimes burns at a low ebb.


The NLP Practitioner Certification for Sport Application course is designed for a more in depth view and application of NLP and all its techniques for the sports person, those interested in or coaching sports.


We run our courses through the UK and USA.  Your Trainer Emma Ylitalo-James has competed internationally for over 30 years, holds 9 world titles and multiple world records. She is also the founder of the British Powerlifting Union, one of the biggest powerlifting federations in the UK and under the governance of the 2nd oldest powerlifting World body, the World Powerlifting Congress.  


The mental aspect of performance can account for up to 60% of overall results so understanding and being able to change behavior and mind set is vital for optimal results.


Neuro Linguistic Programming and psychology not only gives you the opportunity to understand why you have certain responses to various situations and events, but also disassembles your make up. As you will know, this is absolutely critical in being able to see which areas can be improved to give the athlete their ultimate performance.


During the course we also teach the techniques needed to change confidence, belief, behaviour, repetitive problems and apparent barriers we think we have.


Communication and learning how to read someone is also essential when coaching or competing against others. This course gives you the tools to hear what someone is really saying and learn the responses that give you the true meaning behind the words and body language.


Understanding someones language, internal dialogue and behavior is also a huge insight not only into ourselves but of others. It can be a major advantage in any competitive situation.


Emma works with a number of professional athletes from widely varying sports like Golf, equestrian, strength and track disciplines. She believes in practicing what she preaches and has gained World Records and optimum performance using the techniques taught on this course.
