Change is the end result of all true learning. Leo Buscaglia

Would you like to learn how to:

Develop greater positivity, resilience and wellbeing in your life?
Become a highly effective communicator  and enjoy better relationships?
Effect change easily and comfortably in yourself and others?
Be true to yourself and fulfil your life’s purpose?
Apply the latest science of wellbeing to your life and the lives of others?
Become a great coach?

Embrace a new calling as a Wellbeing Coach to make a real difference to people’s lives?

On completing the course you will receive international certification as an NLP Practitioner and a Wellbeing Coach.

The skills you will learn can be applied in your family or within a work team and as well as in a coaching, medical, advisory or therapy setting.
The NLP Wellbeing Coach Practitioner is ideal for those who work in the areas of counselling, therapy, coaching, advising, training, teaching, social work, management, the medical profession as well as for people seeking leadership and management skills or ways to improve wellbeing in their workplace and family. And it’s fine if you just want the benefits for yourself and your loved ones.

It is spread over 8 weekends to enable participants to digest and practise in between sessions. This allows a supportive group to form and for the learning to be absorbed over time, leading to better retention and greater understanding and application of the material. I don’t work with large groups so there will be a maximum of 12 participants to guarantee optimal learning and support. There is no written homework between weekends though two short case studies are required for the assessment at the end of the course. You receive an NLP Practitioner certificate in association with the Global NLP Training and Consulting Community run by Robert Dilts, one of the founders of NLP. Your certificate also qualifies you as a Wellbeing Coach.

What people have said about the training: Fascinating, inspiring, stimulating, motivating. Lots of skills learnt and practised. Great, I got so much from every technique we learned. engaging, relevant to my work, thought provoking and about Sue as a trainer: Excellent, relaxed, focused, practical. Very easy going, made it easy to learn. Relaxed and clear, fun. Imaginative, amusing.

Having very nearly completed this course, with Sue and the wonderfully supportive group she brought together, I can recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about how NLP can help you and others to live your best life. It is such a practical course, with opportunities to explore sessions in more depth with suggested reading when you want to, but not lots of time consuming reading and written assignments. I set out on this course purely to help myself, but each weekend I have learnt new skills that link to so many different aspects of my home and work life. I have found the confidence, that Sue has helped me develop, has encouraged me to use my new knowledge to support others and I’m even considering private practice in the future!


The training will consist of eight weekends, Saturday and Sunday from 9.30 for 10.00 am start, finishing at 5.30 pm each day. All weekends will take place at the Norwich Wellbeing Centre, 15 Chapelfield East, Norwich, NR2 1SF.

Please note that we are starting in February, not January due to the high rates of Covid. Please note also the change of dates for May.

Take your NLP training to the next level!

Starting in November 2022, this training, over eight weekends, will give you all that is needed to create a successful holistic practice.

What’s more, you will undergo a profound self development journey in a safe and supportive setting. This course is totally unique as it combines the science, the practical skills (NLP and others) and the power of spiritual experience to facilitate healing and flourishing, going way beyond ‘fixing’ to allowing people to be heroes of their lives, fulfilling their calling and bringing forth their gifts. Indeed the Hero’s Journey weekend has proved to be life changing for previous participants. What helps you as a participant to flourish will surely help others.

Each participant will undertake a project of their choice to show their application of NLP in the area of wellbeing. It could be running a workshop, writing some case studies, integrating NLP into your work in some way with colleagues, children in the classroom (eg: devising ways to help them be calm in exams), applying the learning to your own life and recording it via video or writing. The final weekend will include presentations from each person to show what you have done as well as a written record (short!).

Eye Movement Neurointegration training.

This is a highly effective treatment for trauma (dispels symptoms of PTSD), phobias and releases any limiting belief. I put together elements of EMDR with Generative Trance, breathing and relaxation techniques and mind body healing visualisations. It works rapidly and with minimum distress to the client. Watch the film to see how it made a difference to Suzanne who made a full recovery from PTSD after witnessing a road traffic accident. The video is on the Home Page.

I taught the method to Palestinian professionals in Bethlehem in February of 2018 in association with the Holy Land Trust.

This training forms part of the NLP Master Practitioner in Holistic Health. However, therapists who are trained in NLP or Hypnotherapy can learn one to one with me if requested. The training will consist of two weekends or four days if coming from abroad or further away. Accommodation can be organised.
