“I have just completed the @NinaMadden life coach, NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner course. Nina is a very capable and professional instructor in this field and her experience showed from start to finish. The course is excellently structured and delivered. In these unsure Covid times Nina has pivoted excellently into the online arena and her control of the sessions were seamless.

If you, like I was, are in any doubt whether to do this course…. go for it. You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you Nina for the course. The way the course is structured, presented and taught is excellent.Each technique is explained in detail and has demos given by Nina. Everyone is encouraged to practise the techniques with each other to build confidence and explore errors made and how they can be minimised. The course is intense but Nina keeps it very interesting. She sends you some pre-course material which is extremely helpful. Once you begin your journey of learning with Nina, you can see her passion and ease with the way she uses her knowledge of NLP. The sessions are interactive. Nina encourages and provides space for everyone to speak. Nina is very approachable and listens to you very intently. She is very natural, genuine and skilful. The content is very powerful and meaningful. I can see the changes in myself and my thinking. Thank you again Nina. I feel motivated, positive and empowered to take on a new journey in my life.

I have finished Nina's NLP and Life Coaching training a week ago and as I am going through my notes I can only be impressed by the number of things I have learned. I was a complete NLP beginner when I registered to this course having read the odd book but nothing more. Through this course I have learned a tremendous amount through the pre course work as well as during Nina's explanations and demonstrations and practiced many techniques during class but more importantly, thanks to this course, I have expended the way I view the world and people. And this, more than anything else in my opinion is going to help me facilitate my clients' journeys and it clearly would not have happened without this course. I also particularly appreciated that Nina introduced us to the Archetypes, the Metaphores, the Hero's journey which I feel complement perfectly the NLP tools. After completing this course I feel confident in using the tools I have learned on paying customers. Practically speaking the course is very well structured to account for discussion times, with well timed breaks to avoid "zoom diziness". Nina's clearly got a breath of experience as a trainer and really adapts well to the different personalities and needs of the group, it was a pleasure to learn from her. If you are hesitating registering, just do it, you won't regret it: you'll meet an amazing bunch of human beings and you'll change your life! Thank you very much Nina! I hope we can meet in person soon!

Nina has a brilliant coaching style and this is reflected in the Life Coaching & Master NLP Practitioner course. The course is very practical, providing a great opportunity for new coaches to apply what they have learnt to others on the course. By having a small group (there were 8 of us on our course) it created an environment where we could openly share and discuss ideas and Nina ensured that we all had an opportunity to speak. For me this course did two things really well. One was to give me the knowledge, abilities and confidence I needed to structure and deliver a great coaching session. The other provided an opportunity to do some personal development work on myself as throughout the course I was able to challenge limiting beliefs and some assumptions I had made that were holding me back. You will also find yourself getting to know the other people on your course really well, especially on the last day (no spoilers here). This is really useful as you will finish the course with a great group of people that are also starting their coaching journey. I'd highly recommend this course if you are serious about becoming a coach. The knowledge and skills you learn will change both your life and your future client's lives for the better.
Studying this course with Nina gave me the academic knowledge that I sought, I am a confident practicing life coach and NLP practitioner now. I can not thank Nina enough. Wether the class is person or via zoom Nina creates a wonderful atmosphere that is free of judgement, cool, connected and creative. I do recommend this course to everyone I know.

I found Nina through google after searching for the right person to do my course with for months and I am so glad I did. The life coaching and NLP course was taught in such a fun way and it really allowed me to immerse myself into the program right from the beginning. The tools and membership area allow you to have so much knowledge and information to hand but the sessions were where the magic happened. Thank you Nina you are incredible at what you do but also made this course and the sessions super fun and exciting. Thank you!

Had the most wonderful learning experience with Nina Madden. Totally loved how she delivered the course, her way of teaching through all her own knowledge and experiences, interactive learning, fun, and how she managed to bring a group of amazing people together, create a safe space for sharing, learning and supporting and empowering each and everyone of us to grow and flourish and become incredible coaches ourselves. Would highly recommend Nina if you are looking into becoming a Life and NLP coach.

Nina is a truly inspirational trainer, I thoroughly enjoyed her course, not only was it hugely informative, enlightening and well structured but also full of joy, the 5 weeks flew by and I was genuinely sad to finish the course.

Thank you, Nina, for taking me on a fantastic journey. The NLP Accredited & Life Coaching course exceeded any expectations I could have imagined. I had no idea the transformational impact it would have on my outlook to life as well as providing outstanding training from a real expert in NLP. You were able to deliver a professional course over Zoom, which was impactful, insightful and passed on your extensive knowledge and experience of NLP and Coaching. As a group, we created an incredible bond which will transcend the end of the course, which you beautifully facilitated. I have ended the programme with an extensive understanding of NLP and feel confident to help others with the training I have received. The manuals and ongoing support you give leave me safe in the knowledge and assurance that you are committed to us all being successful and have been great points of reference.
