“I recently attended an NLP practitioner course which Jimmy and one his colleagues delivered. Having researched his background my expectations of the course were high. The course was well-structured, professionally run and content rich but the crowning glory of it all was the interpersonal skills and the knowledge that Jimmy has. He is gracious, determined, unjudgemental and extremely generous in sharing his experiences with the people he works with.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, my expectations were exceeded and I feel as though I could contact him for help and advice whenever I need it. I recommend Jimmy wholeheartedly – and now I’m a qualified NLP Practitioner.” February 7, 2012

“Jimmy is first and foremost a really nice guy, who loves to help and empower people to reach their full potential.

His knowledge base is vast and covers a broad spectrum of disciplines in the arena of personal development, notably with regards to NLP and Hypnotherapy, where Jimmy has proven time and time again to be a Master Trainer in both modalities.

I have learned a great deal of powerful personal development techniques, which have helped me to overcome adversity in my personal life and, in turn, I have been able to help others, who needed my help to improve their quality of life; a veritable virtuous circle.

I have worked with Jimmy to NLP Master Practitioner and Hypnotherapy Master Practitioner and look forward to working with him to complete my ‘Train The Trainer’ studies in the fullness of time.

Jimmy really is the ‘creme de la creme’ of the NLP world!”
