  • None - just a keen mind and interest to grow

Are you interested in having better relationships, more influence or control of your own mind?

Do you want to know what many top executives, sports stars and successful people know?

Then you must learn what NLP has to teach you.

NLP (or Neuro Linguistic Programming) is a collection of tools, techniques and strategies that help you to improve just about every area of your life.

NLP has been used with success in the following areas (amongst others) :

  • Sales
  • Management
  • Sports & Athletics
  • Therapy
  • Weight Loss
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Behaviour Modification
  • Phobias Elimination
  • Relationship Building
  • Negotiation & Influence
  • Public Speaking & Presenting

This course is designed to give you an introduction into NLP and what it can do and how it is used. This course can be taken as a standalone course or in conjunction with NLP For Beginners: Improvers Course. The two courses compliment eachother but teach different and self-contained topics. It's best to take the Foundation Course first and then the Improvers Course, but they can also be taken the other way around without any problem.


The topics covered in this Foundation Course of NLP for Beginners are:

  • Introduction to NLP
  • Presuppositions of NLP
  • Successful Outcome Setting
  • Sensory Acuity & Rapport Building
  • Representational Systems & Eye Patterns
  • Neurological Levels

If you want to improve your life and build better success into everything you do, then NLP has something to teach you.

This course is designed for people with little or no NLP experience and will give you tools that you can use immediately to create lasting and beneficial change in you and others.

Hari is the founder of TheThoughtGym and he believes that if you "train the mind, the rest will follow", which is the subject of his first book. But more than that, who is Hari?

Hari is just a regular guy. He's been where you are most probably now. Trying to hold down a job, relationship, family, friends - all the while managing all the extra challenges that come from modern living. But perhaps not really have the abundance of energy that's needed for really thriving.

Hari knew that to do all he wanted to do, he would need more energy. Whether that was to sleep less, get up earlier, have more focus, be more energised in the day or even get ill less often (if at all) and do all this while having a smile on his face and being more productive than ever.

Hari's desire to fix this led him down a path studying the mind (becoming an NLP Master Practitioner), nutrition (studying countless books and articles, enrolling on courses and making himself the guinea pig) and spirituality (encompassing yoga, meditation and beyond) to complement what he already knew about the body from over 25 years of exercise practise.

This journey of learning started over 8 years ago and saw Hari research and learn from a wide range of disciplines, from neuroscience, neuro linguistic programming and hypnotherapy, to philosophy, spirituality and personal development and on to nutrition, exercise, business and even quantum physics! In addition, studying the biographies and autobiographies of great leaders.


To see common themes. To understand what the real message was. And to see what made great leaders thrive. What gave them the ENERGY to do what they did.

And what did he find?

That there's a whole lot of information out there!

But more importantly, some of what he learnt shattered previously held beliefs about what it takes to live with health, vitality and true energy.

The more he learnt, the more he realised there was to learn.


LUCKILY, most of the important things were recurrent themes and Hari has now distilled these core fundamentals down into a simple and easy framework for teaching (Check out the B.E.A.T. Tiredness Course). And for others - like you - to learn and implement.
