About us & our experience

About us & our experience

We love what we do and we’re passionate about sharing our enjoyment and knowledge with the people we work and train with.

We’re both qualified NLP Trainers, Master Practitioners and Hypnotherapists. Having ‘found’ each other during our own NLP training, we realised that we had very similar values, goals, motivation and work ethic. On top of this we recognised that our experience and skills complemented each other. And even more importantly, we found that we had fun working together!

We’re dedicated to providing personal resources to those working on self development, equipping people with the skills they need to meet any challenges that come along and enabling them to perform at their best.

We have both experienced some big changes in our lives through working with NLP and want to enable as many people as possible to learn these empowering tools and techniques to make the changes they want for themselves and others.

We are fortunate to be doing what we love doing and don’t actually see what we do as work! We see it as making a community, a community of empowered individuals that care about the world we live in and the impact they make on that world. A community of friends that we are proud to continue to support

Before I formed Beyond Training Solutions with Andy, I was an experienced trainer and worked at senior level in primary healthcare and within both the public and commercial sectors.

I have been there on the hamster wheel of stress, guilt, over work and feeling trapped. I have juggled motherhood, a successful career, family responsibilities, financial pressures and at times have dropped more than a few balls.

Through my own NLP learning journey I realised that I didn’t have to stay on the hamster wheel for the rest of my life. I took control of my life and moved myself up the priority list of my own thinking and caring.

I have always been passionate about supporting others, yet I felt that if I did not support myself, how could I support them? Then, at the age of 40 (ish!),  I decided it was time to stop doing the things I thought I should do and start doing the things I wanted to do.

I have always been driven to enable people to achieve far more than they thought they could, so I decided to take my passion and my 18 years coaching and training experience into setting up Beyond Training Solutions and, therefore, Beyond NLP Training.

Not only do I now  enjoy providing empowering training,  coaching and facilitation for individuals and couples, I am committed to training high quality coaches to help meet the needs of those who live in the busy and pressurised society of today.

I can honestly say I have never been happier or more fulfilled as this has given me the opportunity to not only do what I love but also watch other people let go of things that have previously held them back and move forward in a way that fits with them.

My passion for helping people make lasting changes to their lives comes from my own personal journey and that of my close family. I have experienced first hand the impact NLP can have on the individual’s personal state, confidence, self-image and ability to handle stress and health challenges.

A number of years ago, I found my own health was at risk as my weight hit over 23 stone. The thing is, I saw the issues surrounding my weight coming and yet I chose to ignore it because it was easier to do so. Other aspects of my life were not exactly at their best stage at the time and thinking about losing weight was just another difficult thing to handle.

And then something happened – I received some NLP coaching and it was like a magic switch as realised that I had ownership of my own health and development and it allowed me to find the strength and motivation and have the tools to make a lasting change.  I stopped blaming all around me for what was going wrong and took control. It was fascinating that all it took was me, right then, to decide to make the changes for me. It was amazing how that simple change in mindset made massive changes in all areas of my life.

Since then I have lost over 6 ½ stone and more importantly I know first-hand what it is like when you are enabled to take control. I now have a fantastic family life, respect myself and love everything about what I do.

My passion is watching light-bulb moments of change for our delegates, building a community of empowered people and highly skilled coaches plus helping direct and focus that light towards their outcomes.

Jo and I have trained over 2500 individuals and, if you are ready now to start your NLP journey of learning and change,  we would love you to join our NLP community.
