NLP Trainer TrainingNLP Stage 4
“The course was consistent with the other three stages in its style and delivery method. Consistently brilliant, delivering far more that I ever signed up for!
Sue seems to focus on the development of the individual rather than the development of skills or techniques. This certainly fits with my learning style and an approach I look to model.
Anand was amazing in his ability to straddle the roles of support and delegate with an amazing amount of availability and expertise. An approach that I will model when supporting.
Harry seems to have grown in his confidence in his abilities and influence. His style from the minute he arrived has given me a model of coach and individual involvement that has been absent from my own experience.
Spence is always a breath of fresh air and brings a unique wisdom that grounds my expereince in reality. His plain speaking helps me to stay focussed on being a human not a therapist or a coach.”
— Steve Hedley, Chief Executive, Trinity Homeless Projects
“I have learned huge, huge, huge amounts. I feel as if my learning has happened quite subtley and yet some major shifts have happened in my beliefs, particularly. That’s clever! I am particularly grateful for the realisation about respecting other’s maps of the world and reframing my reactions to words. Spending 5 days modelling excellence in really careful, deliberate and creative ways (not 3 words I would have been able to have toegther before!) has made me feel like a beginner again – in a refreshing and inspiring way. Thank you very much indeed!
the way that Sue ran the programme was brilliant! To be able to hold a group of people for 5 days with no notes or props (slides etc.) was an inspiration to me. Sue’s ability to design experiences on the spot is remarkable. Her non-stop modelling of all things NLP (and provocative) – wow! I loved being in someone’s sitting room and feeling part of a bigger whole which included people at Bix and Sue’s family.”
— Mandy Jago
“I found it excellent. I came unsure of what to expect and was pleasantly pleased to find the experience so personal, experiential (in the moment) and real. By real I mean I have learnt so much that I will take forward as I continue to share this wonderful way of being in the world. And I’ll take it on as it has become part of me – that’s the brilliance of the program in my mind.
Sue was always present and guided our experience however she was wise enough to let it unfold and allow us to explore freely so that we could all learn at the deepest levels for us.
There was a lovely balance in the support team and I loved the element of surprise with guests – it helped maintain the curiosity and the energy. I liked the way all were happy to really show their vulnerabilities as well as their knowledege and strength.”
— Karen Ancell, Informatica
“I read NLP at Work and found the book very easy to engage, like the style, the exercises, the stories and most important the values that came through, so I decided that I wanted to meet the woman that wrote it. Then I looked into the web site and liked the approach. What I was looking for? Back then, I was looking to “up grade” what I have already learned and put the knowledge in a structure way, so I could be able to teach it. I didn’t get that, but I got something else…
…The programme was very good, very unique as it was centered in who was in the room at that precise moment.
I was with an open mind to get whatever I was going to get. I learned a lot observing and absorb a lot for being there, also got some feedback and still would have like more feedback.
Sue pays attention to what is happening in real time, she is extremely good observing patterns. She works with what is happening in the room. It is effective”
— Charo Lanao-Madden
“It was excellent, very thought provoking and I have already made a number of changes and look forward to greater congruity as a result. The thread that went right through the week was about noticing patterns and using clean language to tease out issues without direct questions. Sue modeled this so well.”
— Judy Bartkowiak, Kids Brands Europe.
“‘You are brilliant and the Earth is hiring’—the stage, so to speak, was set from the moment we sat down with Tracy’s beautiful artwork highlighting the shimmering message. What exactly was our own brilliance ?- were we even aware of it ? – how could we work with it, honour it and lovingly be with it? – what was its part and therefore our part in the world?”
— Christine Burgess, NLP Coach.
“The programme was completely brilliant! The group was wonderful to work with and Sue is so skilled at bringing out what needs to come to the surface. Each of the days was utilised to maximum affect which is such a talent as it never felt like hard work. The days flew by. I really wanted to stay longer as I feel I have so much more to learn. The programme was flexible and allowed the group to go where they needed to go rather than were the curriculum said we should go. I think this really maximised the learning.”
— Diane Seaborne, Director, Cloudless Sky Ltd.
“The course was without doubt a great experience. It sometimes pushed some boundaries and gave a secure and safe environment to experiment. I felt I was where I wanted to be.”
— Paul Jarvis, General Manager EMEA, Intuition Consulting Pte Ltd
“This course was truly an exceptional event. I was able to embrace what I believe to be the sophistication inherent within NLP. I was given the opportunity to truly examine what I now believe to be one of the most fundamental building blocks of being an educator. The use of Self. I came with a clear idea of needing to develop strategies for identifying my point of congruence. And just how this particular point enabled me to communicate in a way that captures and expresses the very essence of who I am.”
— Keith Reed-Jones, Director Business Psychology/Learning and Development, Berkshire Consultancy Ltd
“The unhurried and flexible approach Sue adopted made the training much more personal than I had previously experienced. Sue was considerate of everyone’s needs and cleverly focused the learning’s around the groups needs each day whilst maintaining control of the programme and achieving the overall outcomes.
Sue is warm and caring and lives what she teaches, I feel incredibly privileged to have spent the week learning from Sue’s example.”
— Erika Paganini, Director, Intelligent Selling/Grant Solutions
“…a personal and unique journey, intensive in terms of depth of each moment and the sharing of that experience with like minded people. Very in the moment, experiential, supportive and yet challenging. Quality of feedback especially from Sue (and Spence!) superb and spot on. Very encouraging and great fun.”
— Gail Lineham , Owner, Aspire People Development
“The course was the most amazing course I have ever been to, and I have been to so many. The environment that was created by Sue was one of total safety and openness. The whole group was able to feel integrated and anyone can sense the harmony that was created after just one day. I learned a great deal and opened my eyes to many possibilities.”
— Ali Shakir, Therapist and Trainer, Harley Clinical Hypnotherapy
“I experienced a week of personal relaxation, clarity and change. I enhanced my ability to connect emotionally and therefore to be true to me. I laughed, ate, danced and made amazing friends.’
— Lesley Roberts
“The whole thing was just massive. The combination of your (Sue’s) programme itself, Spence’s cooking and all-round support, the strength and interaction of the group, the socialising (and NLPing) around the programme and the contributions of the wider ‘team’ such as David and Elaine and Jane and John added up to an unforgettable experience. One of the top five of my lifetime, I reckon.’
— David Fraser, Managing Director, Dunyvis Limited
“The course was an exceptionally powerful week. Not only was it a senory rich experience. Being in France, in the beautfiul Dordogne, eating tasty, lovingly prepared food and being in stunning surroundings helped us all to relax, bond quickly and focus on ourselves without the distractions of usual life. Being in a small, friendly group really created an atmosphere of trust. Because we bonded so quickly on our arrival on day 1, we were able to talk very openly from the beginning. The trust that was created in our group and with your powerful facilitation style, meant that anything could be openly talked and it felt sacred.’
— Nicky Moran, Training Consultant, Blast Training LTD
“It was a magical and life changing course for me! I came to find direction, and that is exactly what I got! I began to understand the true essence of what I am about and it was a real break- through for me. So many things happened as a result- Synchronicity one might say! I could never have imagined how much could happen in the space of a week. It has been a defining moment for me in my life and I will never forget it.”
— Nicky Boobyer
“Sue and the other course participants created the perfect learning environment for this intensive course. I came looking for a practical, business focused course which had an immediate application within a commercial context. The course delivered this. In addition though I got a Masterclass in authentic leadership and coaching and a new business network.”
— Joyce Gordon, Change Manager, The Co-operative Financial Services
“My learnings from the course were numerous, both personally and as a trainer, including:
- confidence to be myself when training; to confidently use my purpose, beliefs, values, talents, skills, experiences and interests in order to enrich the learning experience. Also, to use what I am still working on for the same purpose.
- how to create a loving, supportive learning environment where risks can be confidently and safely taken in order for delegates to learn and ‘claim their space’
— Jane Washington
“I’m learning about balance, respect of myself and of other peoples map of the world and of acceptance. I’ve learnt to wait in silence as I’ve found less is more, quite often… I’ve learnt not to have to fill space with words or laughter. To trust I am enough right now. I am also developing framing in regards to explaining anything to be concise which will also be valuable in presenting Training. Also framing in regards to time in Coaching and presenting anything to establish boundaries and come to a gradual close with a warm smile. I’m learning to wait until asked to coach. To give when I feel I really want to give – not automatically. To be graceful and at peace in the ‘now’ and mindful as well as heartful.”
— Natalie Hall, NLP Trainer and Coach
