I have just finished the intensive NLP Certified Practitioner Training with Kate and Toby McCartney of WestOne. I have 30 years experience in education as a teacher, Headteacher, advisor, inspector and trainer and I can confidently say that it has been the best training and development experience I have ever experienced. Kate and Toby’s attention to detail in running the course is second to none. They are genuinely interested in every attendee, taking enormous pains to support each person and consider their well being. Every day of the course, they arrived early to support participants on a one to one basis, as necessary. If they took a tea, coffee or lunch break, I didn’t spot it – and they stayed behind every evening, chatting, talking things through, making sure that everyone was comfortable with the day’s learning before going off for the evening. Their course organisation, timings and room organisation were impeccable. The learning that Kate and Toby led / guided / facilitated / supported during our week together was extremely impressive – personally, professionally, emotionally and spiritually. Partly, this is the power of NLP, but, without such expert guidance, the experience would not have been so effective and affirming. Many people on our course, including myself, experienced significant personal growth. We all left with an enormous toolkit of ideas and strategies as well as the essential understandings that underpin their use. I would recommend Kate and Toby’s training to anyone. If you are considering it – take a risk, you won’t regret it. If you think it’s expensive; ask yourself – compared to what? How much will it cost me NOT to take this course? Dare to dream – you’re worth it!
