As my ten year old daughter faces her secondary school entrance exams, the stress levels were rising and I was looking for ways to help her cope with the pressure that she puts herself under in a desire to do well.  When I heard that Marc had had success helping children overcoming their fear with dogs, I asked if he could help. Marc assured me he could and took the time to meet with me first to explain the process and to find out a little more about my daughter.

She was quite apprehensive before Marc arrived to work with her but he quickly put her at ease, made her laugh and gently went through what was going to happen, making sure she understood and was comfortable with the process.

The first two sessions produced excellent results, and she really calmed down, but as the exams approached she started to wobble. As soon as I told Marc, he offered to come back to deliver a free top up session. My daughter was delighted and it really helped to reinforce the earlier work.

We thoroughly enjoyed the sessions with Marc. His kindness and expertise shone through and while the exams haven’t started yet, I do feel that she is calmer and much more ready to deal with the emotional stress. I would recommend Marc to anyone looking for support to tackle a difficult time, or help to deal with a phobia or issue. My daughter warmed to Marc very quickly thanks to his sense of fun and empathy – and his great skill at NLP.

She now not only wants to do well in her exams for herself and for me, she also wants to do well for Marc.

Thank you Marc.


I recently completed the NLP Practitioner course with Marc in June and I can honestly say it has been completely life changing! The course was intense – 10 hour days for 8 days, however Marc supported us from start to finish whilst creating a fun and engaging learning environment. The course content was super fascinating and we discovered many useful strategies and models to integrate into our own and other peoples lives – this is a huge gift.

I didn’t just come away knowing about NLP but I discovered so much about myself and since achieved great results in my personal and professional life. I feel like a different person and still 2 months on, I keep developing as I continue to integrate this wonderful knowledge from the training into my life. The course left us confidently qualified in NLP, Hypnosis, Time Line Therapy® and NLP Coaching and there are so many directions you can take with it, no matter what industry you’re in. Also, the course is very practical and you will be practicing the techniques from the start so you leave the course feeling very confident in taking NLP into the real world.

I would recommend 1000% taking this course and especially with Marc as he’s so passionate about helping others become the best version of themselves and lives and breathes NLP. I have known Marc as a client and also as a student and working with him has impacted my life in such a positive way. Also, you’re not alone after the course either – the after support is brilliant where Marc is genuinely interested in how life is after the course, answers any questions you have, offers coaching sessions and facilitates monthly meet-up groups with graduates so you can keep learning / practicing.

If you’re curious about NLP then go for this course, it will blow your mind! You will be pushed out of your comfort zone, will learn A LOT and will leave a very different person (in a good way 🙂 )

Thanks very much Marc!


When I met you at the BNI Committee training earlier this year, I was not even aware that NLP Training was what I was looking for to achieve my goals. However, it was to my good fortune that we did speak and little did I suspect what an exciting rollercoaster ride I was about to embark on. Your passion and enthusiasm for NLP Training was inspiring and infectious and exactly what I needed to get me back on track.

The intense 8 day Practitioner level training was both stimulating and challenging, giving me a fantastic introduction to the great power of excellent communication in all areas of life. It has enabled me to approach clients and colleagues in a new way, bringing clarity to my work and gaining better and better results the more I practise.

Thank you so much for giving me such an excellent start with this training. I highly recommend you and your training to anyone wanting the best results in any area of business, therapy or education.

Thank you.


I Recently completed Marc’s NLP And hypnosis practitioner course. I learnt a lot in the 8 days not just about NLP and hypnosis but about my self as a person and It has had a positive change on my life both personally and in my business. I can’t recommend Marc highly enough for passing on his years of knowledge, he is really supportive both during and after the course, he really cares about you being the very best and achieving all your goals. Amazing course, don’t think about going on his course just do it! You will not look backwards only forward.


Marc, just wanted to say again thank you for all your hard work training us this past week. You have been amazing and I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say that. It was really hard at times and at some points i didn’t think I could do it and I let self doubts from school and other things pop up but it was all limiting beliefs which have now gone straight in the bin, and it’s thanks to you believing in me and pushing me through. So I just wanted to thank you personally for that.


It is an absolute pleasure and I have to say with much relief (you will soon see why) that I am writing this testimonial / huge thank you.

For sometime my 6 year old has been petrified of dogs and I mean petrified. I can’t exactly pinpoint when he became frightened but the “he’ll grow out of it” and “it’s just a phase” phase wasn’t happening, in fact it was getting worse. It was impacting on days out because if [my son] thought there could potentially be a dog / dogs wherever we were going he wouldn’t want to go.

About 3 weeks ago I approached Marc and asked him if he thought he could help. He said that although he’d never worked on a dog phobia or with a 6 year old he didn’t see why not and the date was set. I have to admit I was anxious. I had no idea how it was going to be received by [my son], whether he’d cooperate or not and whether we were wasting our time and he would grow out of it.

Anyway the day arrived and Marc came to visit us. I’d prepared [my son] (and myself) as much as I could so with fingers and toes crossed Marc started chatting to [my son] and I have to say [my son] was in the zone, he bought into it 100%. I could not have been more proud of him. After about 45 mins of chatting Marc made an imaginary movie of [my son’s] last fearful encounter with a dog. It wasn’t hard for [my son] cos it was literally the day before.

He played the movie over and over forward in colour and in reverse in black and white. [my son] found the backwards part particularly entertaining. Shortly after Marc left and I was left thinking did that go ok, did [my son] even answer properly….. Marc said he had the info he needed and he’d be back the following day.

Day 2…..they made magic circles, their imagination went wild with an imaginary dog behind an imaginary piece of glass, that might I add [my son] took great pleasure in smashing and off he went on a spectacular journey on a magic carpet. He travelled back in time to when he was one, came forward to present day and even went into the future to when he is 7. It was all interesting for me and mind blowing fun for a 6 year old.

I loved how Marc interacted with [my son] over the two days and how he explained things. My biggest and overriding moment from Day 2 was that Marc talked about when [my son] used to be afraid of dogs, mainly because I was sitting thinking he is afraid of dogs.

Well I was soon told… Marc confirmed to [my son] that he used to be afraid of dogs and [my son] said “I’m not afraid of dogs anymore. I like them, look I’m not frightened of that one outside” Mummy was yet to be convinced.

After lots of reassurance, high fives and even a hug Marc left with the instructions to expose him to a dog asap. Yikes…..really.

I went to work the following day and Daddy took him off to the park. I was absolutely devastated to read on a message “3 dogs and he’s frightened”  Well for all of 3 dogs and a couple of minutes was he frightened. Daddy said “remember your magic circle and if you need it get it out and use it” to which [my son] replied “but I’m not frightened of dogs Daddy”

And there we have it. No longer is [my son] frightened of dogs. He stroked 3 dogs in the park with Daddy and has had me harassed to take him to the park to see if there’s any dog to stroke.

I’m sorry for the longwinded story but to say Marc did a great job simply wasn’t enough. His work, his manner and the way he adapted his techniques and chatter with [my son] was second to none.

I could not recommend Marc highly enough. Thank you doesn’t seem enough, you’ve made the biggest difference to all of us.


I recently attended an 8-day Fastrak NLP, Time Line Therapy® & Hypnotherapy Practitioner training with NLP Training Ltd delivered by Marc. As a therapist I had ‘fallen out of love’ with traditional Counselling methodology several years ago and had high expectations of this training.

I was thrilled to discover that right from my initial interest, during the home study phase and then throughout the 8-day practical element, Marc’s passion, knowledge, experience and understanding brought a level of training that far exceeded my expectations. The course is intensive; 10-hour days, but with Marc’s guidance, skill and expertise I felt supported throughout. He enabled everyone to stay energised and engaged and importantly provided a safe therapeutic environment that empowered us to leave our comfort zones, take the necessary risks and thereby learn to fly.

I have had my confidence and passion in the therapeutic process re-ignited and with the new tools I’ve been given, will again be helping people to get healthy not just in body but mind & spirit as well. I have already recommended the course to a couple of colleagues, one of whom is now keen to enrol and I will be continuing my development next year when Marc runs the Master Practitioner course.

I can’t thank you enough Marc


Marc is a one of a kind. He lives and breath his passion by helping people become better versions of themselves. His technique and experience moved me in a way that propelled my self-belief and confidence to dream a lot bigger and nurture confidence and tools to deal with life challenges. His personable and has a very bright future; I’ve excited for him and his followers. If you are looking for a professional who knows how to make change fast, then I truly recommend his service. An authentic leader who leads by example. His works are an inspiration to the industry.


Taking my NLP Practitioner training with Marc was great. I left I came away with not only a professional qualification but a wonderful mentor. Even after the course ended, Marc continues to show his support for his students and his passion for NLP.


Upon meeting Marc, I was overcome with a sense of calm. He has an incredible way of explaining tactics which gave me a whole different persepective during my training. The kind of perspective which set my unconscious mind in a specific direction which allowed me to help my clients with a clear mind and set me on track to understanding myself. Marc is a one of a kind guide. Meeting him was an experience I am grateful for. Thank you for all your guidance!If you Have a Phobia why live with it. Contact NLP training and Marc McDermott will Help to remove it. He is the Best


I am Proud to announce that today I qualified as an NLP practitioner and in Hypnotherapy under the wonderful guidance from Marc McDermott NLP Training Ltd. Most people who know me may probably think that this would be the last thing I would ever choose to do, and some time a go I would have agreed. Over the past 8 days I have been broken and rebuilt, thrown off the cliff and learnt to fly. I have achieved so much more than I could ever imagine and see myself in the world with a whole new positive light and totally re-energised. Thank you Marc, from the bottom of my very being with much love and respect. I strongly recommend and promote NLP Training Ltd.


I have had a stammer/stutter for nearly 50 years, any task that I may have had that involved speaking I would have ran a mile from at warp speed. With working with Marc and then doing the 8 day practitioner course I do feel the opposite now, I now look forward in engaging in conversation, and for the 1st time in my life I can see myself actually doing public speaking. There are times that I have stumbled on the odd word, but it hasn’t bothered me, I regard this as a habit now that in time will diminish, just like when I gave up smoking. I now look forward to helping others with the techniques that I have learned and that I will continue to learn and find new challenges to overcome.


I had a Time Line Therapy® breakthrough session with Marc to support the natural healing of a rare auto-immune disease which is said to be “incurable”. I do not want to use potent steroids for the rest of my life and have made substantial changes to my lifestyle and diet to help me heal but felt “emotional baggage” from my past and day-to-day stress and worry were further obstacles to my healing. The breakthrough session was intense and enlightening. With Marc guiding me through the process, I was able to unlock difficult and limiting negative thoughts and emotions and dispel them so they no longer hampered my thinking or functioning. Following the session, I felt calmer, freer, more focused, empowered and decisive in regards to what I need to do to regain optimum health. It has helped in all sorts of ways, I am able to concentrate better, return to the present moment quicker and to get more restful sleep. Marc was skilled and supportive throughout, he made it easier than I thought it would be! I am very grateful to Marc for guiding me through this therapeutic treatment – I cannot think of one person who would not benefit from this process – everyone should do it! Thank you!


I found Marc at a time in my life when I needed to make major changes to the way I was thinking and behaving. I was suffering from anxiety which was having a negative effect on my relationships. Marc quickly helped me identify patterns of behaviour and learnt me how to change for the better. He is a kind; caring and genuine guy – with a sensitivity and awareness of how people’s problems are intrinsic to their happiness. I would highly recommend Marc.
