Resetting my coordinates with NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnosis


In two days time I fly to Australia again to study NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnotherapy and NLP Coaching with Tad and Adriana James. This time I am taking the Trainer level courses.

I’m feeling a mixture of wild excitement and slight nervousness, as I am putting so much into pursuing my dream, and I’m confident that this is something I am doing, which I have wanted to do for years. There is no better time than now for pursuing dreams!

I originally trained to trainer level with Richard Bandler, starting in 1997. It completely changed my life around. I was able to produce amazing results for my clients quickly, achieved outcomes I would only have dreamed of working previously as a counselor, and took myself not just to a whole new level, but beyond that to start defining new levels to transcend. I shifted by several orders of magnitude.

I went on to study Professional Media, with the idea of gaining all the knowledge I needed to make professional NLP products to sell. This opened an unexpected door, and I found myself being offered work in the TV and Film industry. At first I divided my time between Film and therapeutic work, and then as time went by I spent most time in the Film industry, and worked on films for the next 14 years, using my skills with NLP to help influence films productions in the most optimal directions they could go, designing workflows and implementing and maintaining them.

Outside film work I still took on clients as I could. After 14 years I decided that I wanted to move back to the direction I had previously been travelling in so successfully, that of helping people achieve their best self through NLP and therapeutic work. It seemed a gargantuan task to leave the industry that would guarantee me a lot of money, to pursue a dream, which would cost me a lot of money. A Producer once said to me “It’s a hard industry to be in but a harder one to leave” and I agree there is an element of truth to that statement, but not enough to stop me!

If you travel just one degree off-course from your route on a map, then at first it doesn’t seem very much, but after travelling great distance you would miss your destination by miles. In the same way, if you are one degree off-course with the pursuit of your dreams then after many years you will have diverged a great distance, as I had with being in the film industry. In my case I decided to correct the course and to do everything I could do with what I had – exactly like what I expect my clients to do.

So in May I flew to Sydney, where I studied with Tad and Adriana and successfully qualified to Master Practitioner level in NLP, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnotherapy and NLP Coaching. I was surprised at how much more I learned than before. The teaching methodology was completely different, as was the content taught. Time Line Therapy® revolutionized the way I thought and experienced and gave me many more new tools to work with. Work with clients has taken a different course since then, with very measureable results and satisfaction all round. So satisfied in fact, that I committed to entering the Master Trainer program, which starts after the Trainer program is successfully achieved.

So here I am, studying before travelling, working hard so I can do well on the course, preparing to leave. I expect my clients to achieve beyond their expectations and to put in 100% effort – I expect nothing less from myself. I believe totally in the value that NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnotherapy can bring to everyone around me; everyone can benefit from the skills. So I am committing to bringing more of this back from Australia to disseminate as widely as possible, to individuals who want to excel and achieve beyond their wildest dreams in their personal and professional lives, and to groups, businesses and institutions that want to propel themselves into much greater success, efficiency and profitability.

Once again I head joyfully into the unknown. It is very exciting for me. And when I return I will be ready to take my skills out there and accelerate the potential of all I work with, so they’re motivated to achieve their dreams, increase the quality of their lives and those around them, and do my part to make this planet a better place to be.

I’m all in. I’m totally motivated about this direction I am travelling in, I am changing rapidly again and I like the changes – changes which others are commenting on too, so they’re not just my own perception! I am going through what I expect my clients to go through, and it feels really good. I hit the reset button and will always be very happy I took the chance to do that. Are you ready to hit yours yet?
