Why the ABNLP, ABH and the TLTA? As the saying goes: The company you keep…
Mark and Nicky chose to be certified with the American Board of NLP (ABNLP) and the American Board Hypnotherapy (ABH) after conducting extensive research. They found that the world of NLP and Hypnotherapy is largely self-regulated with a number of Associations and bodies setting up their own standards for membership and certification. They discovered very quickly that there was a need for personal interpretation of the differing bodies and the choice would be down to aligning themselves with organisations that shared their values of excellence and vision of attaining the highest standards whilst assisting people to break free of their limitations. Thus they aligned themselves with these esteemed certification organizations.
The ABH was founded in 1982 by Dr. A. M. Krasner, a world renowned Hypnotherapist. It has members all over the world, wherever Hypnosis is taught there is probably a member. They have over 1000 institutes worldwide approved at the Trainer Level of Hypnosis, and tens of thousands of members.
In 1995 The ABNLP was founded by Dr Krasner, as an adjunct to the American Board of Hypnotherapy and has functioned as its sister organisation since then. It has over 500 institutes worldwide approved at the Trainer Level of NLP, and thousands of members. They believe in NLP and Hypnosis as being most excellent ways of creating your own personal growth and development. Throughout the world the standards for membership levels are the same and high levels of excellence are insisted upon. They highly recommend Approved Institutes and guarantee that when you see the seal of the ABNLP you can be sure that this high level of excellence has been subscribed to by the Training Institute.
Mark and Nicky are also a certified Training Institute with the Time Line Therapy™ Association, which is run by Dr Tad James, whose members are required to follow a code of ethics and agree to maintain the integrity of Time Line Therapy™ techniques.
In addition, Mark and Nicky are Trainer members of the UK NLP membership body of the ANLP. Their trainings exceed the standards required by the ANLP for membership.
