I’ve always had a fascination with the psychology of behaviour change, personal transformation and the link between mind and body. I remember reading (or attempting to read) books by Carl Jung and the Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget at a very early age. At 19 I formally studied psychology at A-Level and, a number of years later, my Master of Science research thesis investigated the relationship between beliefs and health behaviour change.
I found psychology highly frustrating because nothing seemed clear. One person says one thing whilst another person says something completely different. One person agrees with parts of a theory whilst someone else agrees with other elements of that theory.
Then I came across Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
NLP cuts through all the ‘guff’ and gets straight down to what we know about human behaviour and the techniques which help change unwanted or unhelpful ones.
So I studied NLP with one of only a very few people who hold the prestigious title of Master Trainer of Trainers and is a student of the internationally recognised ‘trailblazer’ of NLP, Dr Tad James.
After a few years on courses, practice and study, in 2009 I became a Master Practitioner of NLP, Master Practitioner of Hypnosis and Master of TimeLine Therapy™ . Since then, I’ve worked with numerous private, public and voluntary businesses helping develop wellbeing and behaviour change programmes, I’ve written and published books and attained a Diploma in Positive Psychology too.
