This work book is a basic, at-home NLP course, providing easy-to-follow exercises and reflections to which the reader can return time and again. It addresses topics such as How to Change Emotional State, the Power of Language and Getting Results, and can be applied to all kinds of different areas e.g. business, sport, health.The NLP workbook is designed to be a basic manual for the beginner in NLP, and also a clear and easy reference manual for practioners and trainers.
