Charles Barnard is an NLP Master Practitioner, Master Time-Line TherapyTM
Practitioner, and Master Hypnotherapist. Charles has his BA in
Economics and his MS degree in Special Education. He has taught in
Public and Private Schools for the past 19 years working with students
who have learning, emotional, behavioral challenges, or have simply had
a hard time finding success in school for a variety of other reasons.
Charles first became interested in NLP through Tony Robbins. In 1987 he
went to California to meet Tony and in the summer of 1987 became
certified in NLP through Tony Robbins. After struggling in his initial
business venture he went on to receive training in Advance Behavioral
Modeling. Finally, after getting married in 1994 he completed his NLP
training with Dr. Tad James and became certified as a NLP Master
Practitioner, Master TLTTM Practitioner, and master
After his final training, he returned to education, where he had spent
the last three years, with a renewed focus on helping those students
with serious behavior and emotional difficulties. His training as an
NLP Master Practitioner proved invaluable.
He ended up creating
an in-school “day-treatment” program at a public middle school in-which
he was the lead teacher for 8 years. He then became the first and sole
teacher in a newly created alternative program at another middle school.
During these years Charles taught every subject and every grade from
grade 5 to 12. The vast majority of his experience has been with the
middle school age population. While teaching all subjects, he has had a
special interest in helping students change their limiting beliefs
around learning, which is where is NLP master practitioner training
came into play.
His passion for athletics, health, and fitness, as well as his
connections to a professional strength and conditioning coach, major
league baseball player, and college coaches led him to use his NLP
master practitioner training to do some consulting
work with athletes.
This passion never let up and coupled with seeing
far too many youngsters not getting the type of health and physical
education they needed motivated him to do something about it. He knew
it wasn’t the fault of the teachers, but was a result of the
educational system and training programs that were outdated.
With that in mind and the desire to test some business ideas he founded
Success Institute and then his first web based enterprise,
Physical-Education-Institute. Using his numerous professional contacts
in many fields, especially the education field, as well as his own
extensive background, he decided to provide a place where teachers,
parents, coaches, and students could learn about specific health,
fitness, and athletic information.
He also wanted to provide them a place they could
trust to offer only a few of the top programs to help people achieve
goals around fitness, weight-loss, athletics or teaching. His NLP
master practitioner background and training in behavior modeling helped
to develop a system to narrow programs down to the only the very best.
The decision on which of those to offer was business related.
There are many, many very good programs available, but too many
choices can make decision making very difficult. He wanted to find a
top programs that have a proven track record and could provide him a
With those goals in mind Physical-Education-Institute was created. It
