In 2004, I first met the co-creator of NLP, Dr Richard Bandler, and have been training with him ever since, along with other key Master Trainers – John La Valle (President of the Society of NLP), Kathleen La Valle (Master Trainer), Michael Neill (SuperCoach) and the very talented Paul McKenna Phd and Steve Crabb.  In 2012 I learnt about The Havening Techniques®, training with Dr Ron Ruden (creator) since 2013, and in Oct 2015 I was awarded the position of Havening Techniques® International Trainer.

My Commitment to You

Reinventing Self is something I’ve achieved many times since school.  Being adaptable and flexible and willing to put in the hard work, opens up many opportunities.

My commitment to you is that I only ever learn from the best so that you get to access these learnings too.  And by the best, I’m referring to the creators and experts in the fields of personal change, psychology and neuroscience.

I continually invest in learning, developing and mastering my skills in NLP, Hypnosis, The Havening Techniques® and other powerful methods, by practicing and attending regular training, seminars and workshops in the UK, throughout Europe and USA. I have a strong passion for ‘how the mind works’ and sharing my knowledge with others, helping them to enhance and enrich their lives.

I am fully committed to providing professional, confidential and effective Havening, Hypnotherapy and NLP work, combining modern and advanced hypnotic inductions and advanced NLP techniques, such as DHE and NHR (learnt from Dr Richard Bandler) along with Havening and Coaching.

Each session is customised to suit your own needs and individuality, with the emphasis on helping you gain positive changes in as few sessions as possible.  Afterall, I’m sure you’re not looking to spend your time (and money) in weekly therapy sessions for months on end or even years!

You have a life to live….YOUR LIFE, so let’s work together and get you enjoying it sooner.

Richard Bandler, a mathematician and scientist in the 1960’s (as well as a rock musician), is one of the greatest geniuses of personal change of all time. In the mid 1970’s, he challenged and changed the conventional thinking and practice in the field of pyschology with his unconventional, unique approach and genius insights into human behaviour and how the mind works. He co-invented Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingTM (NLPTM), taught and mentored Paul McKenna and catapulted him to fame. He has continued to improve and evolve the field of NLP and has also developed Design Human EngineeringTM, Persuasion EngineeringTM, Neuro-Hypnotic RepatterningTM to name a few. Dr Bandler is a consultant to many Fortune 500 Companies, Olympic Athletes, the US Military, US Intelligent Agencies and Major League Baseball teams. He has authored many books.
