This week we have another guest blog from a member of Team NLP. Maria is one of our newly qualified Master Practitioners. Over to Maria....
Ever since I did psychology A level I knew that one day I would be working with people, and helping people understand how their mind affects everything in their life. Back then I had never heard of NLP or coaching, and I didn’t know exactly in what capacity I’d be fulfilling my calling.
Fast forward 22 years and I look back on an exciting and rewarding career working in Digital Engineering, and I have especially enjoyed the increasing leadership responsibilities I have picked up over the last 10 years.
I heard about Neuro Linguistic Programming through my osteopath who had trained with Team NLP. After signing up to attend an intensive course in Spring 2020, Covid-19 happened and suddenly the world stood still. The amazing trainers at Team NLP did nothing but – they created an online version of the NLP Practitioner course and one evening in May 6 excited students met on a Zoom call for our first session.
From that very first evening I was hooked – my mind was curious, I just wanted to know more! The way the team had designed the materials meant there was a little bit of self-study before each live session, video materials and a manual to refer to and then students and the trainers come together for a live session to practice and ask questions. I was delighted to make new friends with people from different part of the world during the lockdown!
Every single part of the course was interesting and I found that I could apply my learning to situations at work and home straight away. Colleagues and friends were happy to let me practice my new skills on them and I helped a friend with her phobia.
After I finished my Practitioner course I knew I wanted to learn more and I signed up for the Master Practitioner straight away – it was during this course that I started feeling more confident that I could see a future career for myself doing NLP. In January 2021 I set up my own coaching business, Start Again Coaching, and I am developing my website content, publishing blogs, running events and working with my own clients. Through the continued support of Team NLP and my student community I have found a new path in life for me, something that I really love doing and I feel very grateful and excited.
Are you’re considering learning NLP and feeling a little unsure? Ask yourself – what would happen if you did it, and you loved it?
