"I wanted to thank you for running the course and for supporting me so well throughout. I achieved what I wanted from the programme and have gone away with an armoury of new and fabulously useful techniques. I have also got a lot of personal food for thought."

"One thing impressed me most was your total commitment to the essence of NLP. You reflected this in the exercises to ensure that participants could understand NLP at a deep level and made it useful to their everyday practice. Well done, Bruce!"
Dave Park. Head Of Support Services. Capita.
"I decided to attend the Achieving Lives NLP Practitioner course as I wanted to achieve more in my profession as an IT Manager for a leading business outsourcing company. The course has provided me with the necessary skills to be more effective in the way I communicate with my management team, key stakeholders and customers alike. By using some of the basic techniques that NLP provides you with, such as framing, anchoring, perceptual positioning and well informed outcomes, I soon found that I was achieving many more positive outcomes with my every day interactions with people. Having the ability to recognise a persons communication style can indeed be a very powerful aid to achieving your objectives as a Manager Being able to attend the course at weekends over the course of four months, meant it didn't impact my busy work schedule, which my boss was certainly pleased about. The course was well structured and give me the opportunity to try out the techniques we covered during each module before moving on to the next. This is something that wouldn't have been possible had the 8 days been back to back. Both Bruce and Dave made the course both enjoyable and informative, providing answers to the many questions posed by myself and the other delegates. The pace and the content of the course were excellent and most important of all it provided me with the skills and confidence to go out and use my newly acquired NLP skills. After attending the course I definitely feel I have achieved my goal of becoming a more effective Manager. I would even go as far and say that my NLP skills assisted me in securing a new position within one of the UK's leading Banks. I'd certainly recommend the course to anyone who wants to improve their effectiveness in the work place, increase their self confidence, reduce their stress levels or simply lead a more fulfilling life."

It is my believe that participants are in for a better bargain than one originally expects due to Bruce's holistic approach towards NLP. Again, thank you Bruce for having made this experience possible."

"Achieving Lives responded well to the needs of the individual group members. Bruce has an amazing knowledge of both NLP and psychology which brought the subject matter to life and gave it a natural "grounding". Dave shared his views in a way which built on Bruce's information and served to show how individuals will use NLP within the framework of their existing knowledge. The whole course was enjoyable, enlightening and rewarding and delivered in a very personable way."

“The course was conducted well by Dr Bruce Grimley. The NLP training course was highly useful and provided personnel many lessons to take forward into future debriefs.. The skills learned will almost certainly improve the debriefing capability of each person on the course.”
