About

My name is Terry McCoy, I`m the Director and Principal Trainer at The NLP Works. We were one of first to offer quality certified NLP training to the general public and companies on Merseyside.

I qualified as a certified coach and trainer of both classic and New code NLP with Dr John Grinder one of the co-creators of NLP. I’m also a certified trainer of Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Reiki. As well as teaching others I regularly use these powerful methods to help and coach others on a one to one basis.

I was a founder member of The International Trainers Academy of NLP (ITANLP) created by John Grinder and a member of the British Institute of Hypnotherapy and NLP.

I have been inspired by the discovery that much of the recent research in Neuroscience seems to validate many of processes I teach. One particular process covered in depth on the course and is attracting a lot of attention from both health professionals and the business world is Mindfulness.

Mindfulness is a way of training mind to pay attention to thoughts and feelings in the present moment. This 2500-year-old process is clinically proven to help with a variety of emotional disorders and is possibly one of the most practical ways of reducing stress available today. In fact, I believe combining NLP with mindfulness is one of the most powerful tools in there is to create personal and professional lasting change for anyone who practices.
