- May graduates use IANLP seal?
- I am requesting to evaluate the 30-month rule between practitioner and trainer. Many people lose interest on the way, people who have the conditions to be good Trainers.

Scientific community biased towards NLP?
Associate Professor Suzanne Henwood explains on facebook about progress so far with publishing her height phobia research in New Zealand: "We ended up having to take NLP out of title because it was getting rejected from medical journals with it in. One review even gave us feed back as because it's NLP it can't work ... no feedback on methodology or results!! We were horrified at our experience of bias in review process. We write about it in Rapport Magazine to try to raise awareness (Article).
New Zealand medical research on the NLP Phobia process.
The process was done as a single 15 minute session able to be delivered by doctors (rather than a full NLP session), and randomly compared to a single 15 minute session of a guided meditation, with the clients not knowing whether their process was the "real" one or not. This is an attempt to distinguish the NLP process from simple placebo response. Half of clients (52) got the NLP process, and half (46) got the placebo. On the Heights Interpretation Questionnaire the percentage of clients reporting 8 weeks later that their fear of heights is "very much improved" was 34.6% in the NLP group and 15.2% in the control group.
