NLP or "Neuro Linguistic Programming" was developed in the 1970's by Richard Bandler and John Grinder as they began to look at and model some of the great therapists of the time.

NLP is not a therapy, a protocol or even belief or even as it's sometimes a pseudo science. It's a collection of models and observations that can help to understand how people think and construct their experience and how to make effective change. A methodology of modelling excellence.


Hypnosis - It's not what you think it is, It's what you think it is. Everybody has a idea of what hypnosis is to them. It's not all "clucking like chickens and eating onions." Simply, Hypnosis is a tool. It can be used for change. It can be used as a generative tool for improvement.

Hypnosis can be used as a therapy in itself, due to the beneficial states you can experience and it's something we can all do, all experience and all have a natural ability to "go into". Watching a movie, Driving a car, Listening to your favourite song can all be declined as "trance states". Learning to access and utilise these states for your own benefit and others is a skill everyone should learn.


How do you think? We generally create the world we live in through our own thoughts and internal dialogue. NLP has a view that "the meaning of communication is the response you get".

Simply put whether you are looking to improve or change yourself or help others change their own views, beliefs or behaviours, improving your communication is key.


Learning can be fun - No really , It can be....

Too many training experiences are dull, dry, staid or just narrated power point presentations. Too many trainings are also all about the trainers or training and how clever they or it is.

Training does not have to be this way. Training can be relaxed, Training can be fun. Training can be engaging. Training can be Enjoyable (no really. it can be!)

We set out at the start to make sure not only do people learn and develop it's also not a chore, it's something they want to do and do more of with us.
