ABOUT NLPEA – A Professional Body for Coaches and NLP professionals worldwide

NLPEA, the International Guild of NLP & Coaching.  Over the last 20 years we have established a significant membership of accredited NLP and (Life and Business) Coaching professionals worldwide who promote NLP and Coaching in personal and business communities.

We have branded and licensed our own unique Coaching qualification and title NLPEA Transformation Coach™. Our international network of Trainer and Master Trainer members train and licence NLPEA Transformation Coaches.

We currently have vacancies for membership and operate a tiered membership level system that reflects the knowledge and skills of our members. Join the NLPEA.

Our organisation is supported and administered at board level by professionals from a diverse set of backgrounds including healthcare, finance, law and education.  We have board members and Guild influencers directly involved with NLP and coaching internationally and at the highest levels.


For avoidance of doubt, If it doesn’t carry our logo or branding  then it isn’t associated with us. We would be grateful to be informed if you find anyone who you think may be using our branding inappropriately (although we do test for this to ensure that whenever possible it doesn’t happen).

  1. I’m looking at the integrity of members who you accredit. Is it true that you allow online NLP courses to be accredited as full NLP Practitioners. I can see some companies out there with your banner who only offer online NLP but state they will become “NLP Practitioners” after the online course.

  2. Thanks for asking. Some of our experienced Trainers run both online and live NLP courses which are accredited by NLPEA. All NLPEA accredited Trainers are fully vetted by our board and we will only accredit online courses that are “blended” learning experiences, with experienced tutors, having a supervision element to them and have very high quality training material.
