She trains and coaches using NLP for individuals and international businesses and she is an award-winning author. Lindsey worked for 11 years as a change management consultant, corporate trainer and coach for PricewaterhouseCooper and has now been an entrepreneur since 2005.

‘’I’ve spent the majority of my career assisting others not just to cope with change in their lives but to embrace it. Change is inevitable in life. If we are not able to embrace change, we will find ourselves stuck where we are, growing more and more frustrated and unhappy. I was born in the East End of London and was the first woman in my family to go to university and the first to have a successful consulting career within one of the big ‘4’.

In my 40’s, I stumbled upon NLP when I was offered the chance to attend a Practitioner course to improve my communication skills by my boss. I was completely blown away by the benefits of the course. I made a decision there and then that NLP would be a key part of my life as it seemed to provide so many practical answers and guidance about how to change and create success in your life. Shortly afterwards I made the scary move into entrepreneurship by starting my own business. The rest is history. I owe so much to NLP as it has enabled me to change my own life and for me to have had an impact on so many other lives too.

I believe that everyone can change their lives and that it is never too late to start. All it takes is a decision to do something differently. I am willing to do whatever it takes to assist you to find your purpose in life and rediscover your passion. Are you ready?’’.

Lindsey is also regularly invited as a keynote speaker through A-Speakers to speak about professional and personal change.

Sophie Baker

Sophie is a Trainer of NLP. Her journey into NLP started almost as soon as she could walk as she is Lindsey’s daughter! It is fair to say though that she resisted getting trained in NLP during her early years. However, during a period of change in her own life in her mid 20’s when nothing seemed to be going to plan Sophie decided to get more involved in NLP as she realised that the tools had transformed her mother’s life and could help her get the focus and purpose into her life that she needed.

Getting involved in NLP gave her the confidence to try new things and she successfully climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro in 2018, something that she would never have imagined doing before NLP. She has also transformed her levels of confidence in dealing with anything that life throws at her.

She works for a children’s charity using her NLP tool-kit to empower the young people she meets through her work. In her spare time she is an active member of Team NLP, regularly coaching and assisting on the Team NLP trainings.

Tracey Gray

Tracey’s passion in life is NLP and through training and coaching empower people to achieve their dreams. She is a trainer of NLP, Time Line Therapy, Hypnosis, mBIT and a HeartMath Resilience trainer.

‘’I was first introduced to NLP over 25 years ago when life had thrown me a massive curve ball. I was going through a traumatic divorce and had 2 small children who I needed to protect and provide security for. Fortunately at the time I experienced NLP coaching and never looked back. As a result I trained as a registered nurse and had an incredible career within the NHS as a Nurse, A senior lecturer at 2 red brick universities I then set up a service to train medical students in an innovative way using simulation. The research created here was disseminated internationally and resulted in me being appointed as Head of Education and Organisational Development for a large NHS Trust.

Throughout my career I was always grateful for the coaching I had received all those years ago. By this time my small children were grown up both secure and very happy pursuing their dreams. During an in house training day I was introduced again to NLP and decided I wanted to train as a trainer and really make a difference in people’s lives. I trained as a trainer and introduced NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner courses with my NHS region. Also utilising the many tools of NLP to change culture and practice in an organisational development capacity. Including designing and leading an NLP Intervention which won 2 prestigious national awards – The Nursing Times Award for Excellence in staff health and well being and the Training Journal award for Best Organisational Development Programme’’.

After leaving the NHS Tracey successfully ran her own NLP training, coaching and therapy business. She now lives most of the year in Cyprus and is in demand as an international trainer and coach where she brings NLP to many organisations and individuals. All her NLP certification trainings are now all through Team NLP which provides students with high quality training, assessment and continual professional development.

Will Grover

Will is a Trainer of NLP, who uses the techniques all the time in his work as a coach, trainer and consultant. So how did he discover NLP and what has it meant for him?

“I’ve always admired people with unshakable self-confidence and the ability to build instant trust and rapport with others. I had a background in sales and the performing arts, so I saw these were valuable skills for me to master. I was pretty good at what I did for a living, although everything seemed like such an effort and I always felt like I was faking it.

The day it all changed for me was when I saw a lady give a keynote speech on stage to 3000+ people at a conference, and I thought to myself “Wow!! She has the audience in the palm of her hand, and she looks so in control of herself and connected to all of us in here.” By the end of her speech, it was clear that she had created something special. She had impacted everyone in that room with her energy and authenticity, and so I made a promise to myself to speak with her, and to find out what her secret was. She was kind enough to share some time with me and told me that the best place for me to start my journey would be to study NLP.

To cut a long story short, that’s exactly what I did, and how I found out about NLP and found my way to Lindsey who would become my trainer. I can barely measure all the positive ways NLP has helped in my life. My confidence is through the roof. My relationships are stronger and more profound, and the stress and anxiety I experience now is tiny compared to before. And best of all, not only do I feel better about who I am and what I do, but I get to share that gift with the people I train too.”

Studying NLP enabled him to achieve his own goal and fulfil his life aspiration of helping others on a daily basis, which has been the most rewarding part of his journey to date.

Anton’s favourite aspects of being a Master Practitioner in NLP is the ability to understand why people behave the way they do and always being able to show others the simple changes they can make which can have a huge impact on their lives.

Fiona Reed

Based between Paris and Kent, Fiona has over 30 years’ experience as a teacher, trainer, coach and nutritionist where NLP techniques transform her presence and enhance the success of all her students and clients. Now a Master Practitioner, Fiona approached NLP as a working tool but very quickly discovered that instead, NLP found her:

“Communication is key to success and as NLP became a natural part of my everyday life, I discovered a new sense of clarity where, without apologising for using a cliché, the understanding of NLP principles lifted a veil to finding a colourful world of opportunity.

By understanding why I do what I do, I am able to respond where once I would react. I examine long held beliefs and question automatic perceptions in order to break down barriers to create an open space to doing what I really want to do.

NLP is not just a tool, it is a way of thinking, a way of life and I feel privileged to share this across generations and platforms; one-to-one coaching; large venue or small group training.”

“I came across NLP over 15 years ago when I attended a training course while working for BT. For me personally, it was the proverbial ‘light bulb moment’ as it literally changed my way of thinking and had an immediate impact on my outlook on life. What fascinated me most about NLP was the speed at which a simple mindset shift can change your results and create more successful outcomes.

Combining positive thoughts with greater self-belief has brought me a more confidence, courage and contentment as well as a greater empathy with others. I often feel like I’ve discovered a secret that I want to share with everyone so that they too can adopt a peak performance mindset and achieve their dreams”.
