TPM Europe oversee the only practitioner training in Europe. To gain the TPM tools and principles which work at the level of the mind that runs us, and achieve results more easily, it is important that trainee practitioners experience as well as learn how to practice TPM. The training is therefore interactive, includes demos, working with others and discussion. A comprehensive manual is provided for each module. There is also the option to join in follow up share and learn conference to consolidate learning.  

The modules build sequentially

Module 1 Mental Landscaping is over one full day or two shorter days depending on location

Modules 2, 3, 4 and 5 are each over two days 

Successful completion of module 1 + 2 and submitting 5 case studies on line qualifies for TPM Diploma in Mental Landscaping 

Completion of all 5 modules qualifies for Practitioner in Thought Pattern Management  

Trainee practitioners are encouraged to practice what they learn and integrate TPM in their lives and with their client work.  Keeping things safe and light for the client is taught from day one.  TPM is an educational modality where practitioner and client work as equals in a learning and discovery partnership. The client is always in control. Much of the work does not require the practitioner to know the content of a problem (This is because TPM works at the structure of it and only the client's mind/body controls that).  TPM is a very ecological and private way of working.

There is a TPM community, with continuous professional development (organised by the Association of TPM practitioners), to support, share and develop TPM further.   There is also an online Resource website for TPM trainees, practitioners and trainers.

It provides something really light and fun to work with in many contexts yet that can have a profound impact.  (This course was previously accredited by the International Coaching Federation for CPD purposes - we just did not wish to pay another fee to renew it)

Your first step to TPM may have been attending a talk, joining a conference call, taster event or having a TPM session for yourself.  Once people hear what a difference it makes and how respectful yet powerful it is, how all encompassing it can be, they want to learn more.  Module 2 Memories Matter explains more background principles and where TPM came from. You will understand why memories matter and the massive impact reference memories play in our daily lives.   You will learn to get to the source of and take the sting out of any trigger memory causing unwanted patterns. You will even learn how to locate problematic memories in the mental landscape completely, content free, and resolve them for good! 

Learn how energising it is to works without even having to talk about the problem - No one needs to know!

Objectives for TPM practitioner training in more detail

  • To enable transformation of deep limiting patterns from the past safely, quickly and profoundly.  Much can be done content free. 
  • Help you and your clients create new ways of thinking and organising thoughts to enhance effectiveness, self belief, self value and self image.

  • Get to the source to transform un-desired behaviour or thought patterns quickly and easily
  • Alter automatic responses to past memories or traumas without exposing the client to negative emotions
  • Teach a process once, then hand it to the Unconscious Mind to apply where needed
  • Learn "Mental Landscaping" to help clients alter how they store and access information to enhance motivation, habits, self identity, belief
  • Gain confidence, work quickly, creatively and often achieve outstanding results


Training format 

Pre-course reading material provided for foundation

Comprehensive Manuals  

Mix of demo, practice, discussion

Group sizes will be restricted to ensure a low ratio of trainer to trainee.  The aim is to provide a quality learning experience for you personally as well as for you professionally. Integrity and respect for each participant is paramount.  

In addition to live demos you will review video clips of TPM in action and hear from the founder of TPM Robert Fletcher.  There will be ample time for theory explanations, demonstrations, practice and questions. The modules have been spaced apart to allow time for you to experience putting what you learned into practice. 

Group sizes will be limited, so book your place early. When we are full, we are full.

Accreditation processes present and past

The training and accreditation has developed over the years to reflect how TPM itself has evolved.

Training in Europe is now accredited by TPM Europe.   Training in USA is accredited by Jared Fletcher. 

Successful participants who complete Module 1 in UK gain a certificate in Mental landscaping

Participants who complete Module 1 and 2 and submit 5 case studies gain a diploma in Mental Landscaping and Memories matter

Successful participants who complete all 5 modules and submit 10 more case studies will gain a certificate of Practitioner in Thought Pattern Management™ from TPM Europe.  Training may also be provided by TPM Europe or trainers who have been trained and approved to train such as Rita Neligan Medcalf of First Position Performance and Development

Success for practitioners will be measured by the ability to perform the TPM processes in the training room, demonstrate deep rapport and respect for the person they are working with, follow the principles learned in TPM and by completing practical 'homework' exercises which include practicing particular processes outside the training room with non-TPM students.  Students will also be expected to complete case studies online in a simple format

The title of 'Master Practitioner of Thought Pattern Management' will only be granted to practitioners who have demonstrated application of TPM to the point that they demonstrate expertise in a particular application of TPM and present a mini "Share and learn session" on their experiences and learnings.  

Previous training and titles Before 2011, practitioner status was granted by Robert Fletcher to those who completed what was then Level 1 (Roughly the equivalent of the current Modules 1+2 and trained over a week)  Master Practitioner states was granted to those who completed level 2 (which is roughly the equivalent of the current Modules 1, 2+3)Advanced Master practitioner status, was granted to those who also completed the equivalent of Module 5, and a bit more, trained over a further week.  The very first time TPM was trained in the UK - content from level 1 2 and 3 was trained in one week. So the training content and format has evolved to what is now trained both sides of the atlantic as agreed by Jared Fletcher and Fiona Sutherland in 2015


Next levels of support & development of TPM Chefs (as opposed to Cooks) 

Support is available from the trainers to guide new students during and beyond their training. Once you have learned the processes, principles and theories you become more experimental in combining them. 

TPM Practitioners learn an array of processes, skills and principles, to help the unconscious mind manage what seems unmanageable.  These building blocks can be applied and in many ways, just like a chef combines ingredients to make new dishes. At TPM Europe we aim to develop chefs not cooks.

The artistry of a TPM practitioner develops the more they follow the cues from the client, trust their intuition and the processes, and combine elements flexibly.  New TPM processes are developed all the time by practitioners who work in this way. At TPM Europe we are committed to providing means to make it easy for people to share what they learn in the TPM community to continue expanding the frontiers of what is possible.  

Puffles - TPM community Image 2TPM trainers in UK and USA, and volunteers from the Association of TPM practitioners, facilitate on going peer support and sharing of learning via webinars, a closed Linked in group forum. We have occasional Practice days and conferences too.  

Fiona has been instrumental in galvanising practitioners to get together to form an association of practitioners to assist with the on going continuous professional development of practitioners and the sharing of TPM know how, results and applications.  

Robert Fletcher encourages practitioners to push new frontiers and it's good to have a group to share your successes and questions with as you do so.  Staying strictly within ecology, we encourage practitioners to develop new ways of working. Better still, we encourage the client's unconscious mind to be in charge of ecology, ensuring that integration occurs at every level.
