Not Yet NLP Trained
The path to becoming a Quit Smoking Coach is an easy one to navigate.
The foundation of the Quit Smoking Coach Program is grounded in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). We know that Coaches and Therapists trained as NLP Practitioners have an enormous amount of skill and knowledge in relation to assisting people to access resources and make changes in their lives. Therefore the prerequisite to becoming a Quit Smoking Coach is completing a NLP Practitioner Certification Training.
What is NLP?
NLP is an extraordinary and cutting-edge approach to human communication and the development of excellence. This remarkable set of tools is based on the amazing discovery that in changing how you think can change what you think – and in changing how and what you think, you can dramatically transform the results you create in your life.
A Coach using NLP NLP can assist their clients to develop and maintain a high level of motivation for achieving goals, and can help convert barriers and obstacles into doorways to success. NLP can be used to learn the characteristics of top achievers and to create a blueprint for unlimited success.
Through the simple yet profound techniques that make NLP so powerful, you can help eliminate unwanted habits, transform negative emotions into positive feelings, improve the way you and your clients see themselves, enhance self-esteem and become the person they want to be.
Your skills of NLP are very versatile. You will be able to improve your own life, improve your business, communication skills and assist people with a variety of issues, in additional to helping people quit smoking. Many NLP coaches work with clients using the modality of NLP to assist with issues such as motivation, depression, anxiety, health issues, weight loss, addictions, changing behaviors and more. NLP is one of the best foundational tools for Life Coaching, Executive Coaching, Business Coaching, Counselling and Therapy.

What is my earning potential as a Quit Smoking Coach?
Ultimately, the sky is the limit! We do stress and urge an important point: being a quit smoking coach is about helping people, not about making money. If you main reason for becoming a Quit Smoking Coach is for the income, we encourage you to do something else. Yes, you will make money, and can potentially make a lot of money. However, in our experience, the best coaches are those that genuinely desire to assist their clients and a secondary benefit is getting paid well to do that.
Now, lets talk money. Each coach is responsible for setting their own rates. We encourage all of our coaches to find out how much coaches and therapists in their location are changing. A reasonable range is $100-250 per one-hour coaching session. With only 10 clients per week having their two-hour coaching session, this equates to $2,000 to $4,000 per week. Some clients will require additional coaching sessions, this is normally charged at your normal hourly rate.
