Who Comes On This Training?

This course tends to attract people who long to have a career helping others. They want to make a profound impact and change lives, but they don’t want to study psychology for years.

The people who come on this training understand the importance of having a recognised, high-quality, training to get the foundation right. They’re ready to invest time, money and effort into making their dreams real. Some are therapists already (but you don’t have to be) and have studied psychology or counselling.

Some of the students on our programme have had successful careers in HR or banking but feel unfulfilled and bored. Some have a background in alternative therapies like Reiki or mindfulness.

You don’t have to be “perfect” to do our course or to be a Life Coach and NLP Master Practitioner, but you need to want to make a difference!

Why study NLP AND Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is fantastic helping  your clients create a future that represents everything they want. It is empowering, and forward looking.

However, often emotions, unconscious patterns and self-sabotage gets in the way of creating that future. People are blocked, stuck, lacking in clarity. They feel helpless and hopeless.

NLP helps you help your clients remove the emotional and mental blocks, fears, anxieties and self-sabotage and break negative patterns for good.

“I am truly grateful to have learn NLP with such a wonderful person as Nina. She is a strong, enlightened and generous person. Her course was not only an intense learning experience, but it was also a place full of sharing and uplifting conversations.

She has this natural way of leading the group and creating harmony between people with different ages, backgrounds and cultures. She opened many doors and created peaceful bridges in my way of seeing the world.

I believe NLP has a deep and almost unconscious way of guiding my life now. 

To make it short, thank you Nina, and keep on uplifting this world and its people.” – Barbara Pitras – NLP Graduate 

Thank you Nina. I find it rather hard to express in words how I feel about my entire experience. You are such a powerful, insightful Coach who in turn empowers and enables clients to become that too… That’s magic!  I am literally still bursting with excitement. Also, yesterday Hero’s Journey unlocked many other heroes journeys I’ve walked, and I am going to acknowledge it, learn from it, as I embark on this next call to adventure. Lots of Love  – Chrystella – NLP Graduate

“I believe NLP worked so well because with guidance you finally realize that you have the power within yourself to affect your situation, it is not a magical drug that is prescribed but you face your fears and deal with things in your past that have been holding you back. You understand the cause and effect of how you ended up where you are today. It is this empowering wisdom that enables you to keep progressing after the sessions have ended and you are again faced with the real world. Through Nina’s excellent guidance I had found my inner strength, and things that before seemed impossible now are achievable. Because of this you are no longer a victim of things that have happened in the past, but in control and in charge of your own life and how you choose to live it.” – Marianne Bengtson
