NLP Training - Life Practice
Specialists in Human Potential Coaching


121 Sessions, Nutritional Therapy, NLP, Life Coaching, Clinical Hypnosis.

We hereby lay out our terms of business and engagement with ref to all 121 client consultations, NLP and clinical hypnotherapy sessions. We strongly recommend you read and understand the life practice terms of business and price and policy found on the Life Practice Website.

“I confirm I have read and understood the cancellation and refund policy with regards to Life Practice Nutrition Packages, Life Coaching Packages and Life Practice mentoring programs. I confirm I understand when booking life Coaching packages with the Life practice UK that no refunds are given when sessions are postponed or canceled by me. I also understand if I cancel booked sessions within a set program this will count towards my overall session numbers. The Life Practice deem a contract to be in force between the client and the LPUK ltd once they have submitted and invoice to the client (in advance of sessions) and this has been duly paid by the client”

The LPUK will always encourage a free telephone consultation between LPUK and the client to ensure the suitability of our programs for each individual client. I confirm this has been offered to me and took place as stated above. I understand the LPUK will always meet their appointment commitments once confirmed however in unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances where the LPUK cancel an appointment this will be done on email within 24 hours of the appointment date and time.

I understand that when using techniques such as Hypnotherapy and NLP successful outcomes depend on individual client susceptibility and commitment and results are not guaranteed. The hypnosis industry acknowledges there are no guarantees with outcomes when using clinical hypnosis although some people seem to enjoy the benefits more than others. Industry figures suggest 20% of people respond well, 60% of people gain benefit from hypnosis where 20% of people receive no benefit at all.

With particular regards to life coaching and nutrition programs successful outcomes largely depend upon the client completing agreed goals and actions.

I confirm the LPUK ltd have acted professionally and within the parameters found in the price and policy section of their website, found at

Course sizes

Your learning experience is our priority. We work on a strict trainer to student span of control / ratio of 1 to 8. Therefore course groups tend to be small and focused. Some other providers run large audiences of delegates and can deliver a stage / show style course. Ours is focused learning ensuring each delegate receives the appropriate level of course input and training.
