Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a psychological approach that involves analysing strategies used by successful individuals and applying them to reach a personal goal. It relates thoughts, language, and patterns of behaviour learned through experience to specific outcomes.
Proponents of NLP assume all human action is positive. Therefore, if a plan fails or the unexpected happens, the experience is neither good nor bad—it simply presents more useful information.

Modelling, action, and effective communication are key elements of neuro-linguistic programming. The belief is that if an individual can understand how another person accomplishes a task, the process may be copied and communicated to others so they too can accomplish the task. NLP can be so beneficial in a therapeutic application, be by identifying where someone is at right now in comparison to where they want to be.

NLP is where my learning and integrating of self and others really started. My passion for NLP, TimeLine Therapy and Hypnosis began back in 2013 when I first attended an NLP course delivered by Emma, we have since become great friends and it is my honour and privilege to offer these courses.

There are many courses under this banner at varying levels of understanding.

TimeLine Therapy (TLT)

TLT builds on similar foundations to NLP. Its techniques allow freedom from undesired negative emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt. By releasing these emotions from the memories that harvest them you are then able to react freely to future situations without the emotional baggage of the past.


Is an alternative state of consciousness which can be entered naturally for therapeutic purposes, enabling beneficial corrections to the unconscious mind. It’s an effective way of connecting with our inner self, our reservoir of knowledge and potential as well as the source of many of our problems and unhelpful strategies.

All of these courses, practitioner and Master Practitioner level are accredited by the American Board of Neuro Linguistic Programming, TimeLine Therapy association and American board of Hypnosis.
