Learn nlp in an immersive environment whilst enjoying a beautiful retreat experience

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is one of the most powerful models of change in the field of personal development.


It offers tools and techniques to help you get over your past, reduce worry and anxiety, help improve your confidence, reduce pain, form amazing relationships as well as lots of ways to help you become more successful and achieve your dreams and so much more!


As a Coach or an aspiring Coach, NLP is an essential set of skills that will help you not only believe in yourself more but also really understand your clients on a deep level so that you can help them with ease and quickly and responsibly.

As a business leader or entrepreneur, NLP is an essential set of skills that will help you develop an unstoppable mindset and learn the skills of connection and communication to really stand out as a leader in your field.


I discovered NLP over twenty five years ago when I was looking for ways to help my own confidence. I fell in love with NLP after the amazing personal results I achieved and trained in 2009 to become an NLP Practitioner, Master Practitioner and then in 2012 studied to become a Trainers' Trainer so I could host my own NLP courses.


I learned NLP in an immersive and retreat environment and knew that this was how I wanted to run my courses too.  I really believe that it is hard to learn NLP from online courses and books as NLP is all about interacting with people!  We run small intimate courses in beautiful locations so that you don't get lost in the crowd, get lots of personal support and can learn in a relaxed and fun environment.

In association with Pure Confidence NLP we offer a 4 day introduction to NLP diploma course and an eight-day accelerated NLP Practitioner Retreat which will give you all the skills and knowledge to be able to set up your own practice if that is what you want to do but you will also find that you learn every you need to learn to achieve greater success and happiness in your own life.​

Jo is a rare breed in that she is extremely accomplished in the science of hypnotherapy, but on top of that she brings an unerring excitement to her work through her knowledge NLP and its benefits, and throws in a good mix of life affirming positivity, so that after a session with Jo, you cannot fail to come out with a greater sense of direction, contentment and understanding of the cosmic influences of our fascinating existence.

Karen Louise

NLP Practitioner

Oct 2019 graduate

I was drawn to become a certified NLP practitioner with Jo for a number of reasons. her level of NLP subject matter expertise is as deep as it is broad. Set in a friendly, comfortable and inspiring venue, I found her training course to be a great example of what training should be, energetic, atmospheric, positive, engaging, informative and led by someone who not only knows their stuff but is truly passionate about the subject. On top of training, Jo is a fantastic coach. Her positivity, energy and skill combined are a dynamite combination. She is committed to her clients and her work and this shows in all of the interactions we’ve had.


As a fellow coach I would not hesitate to highly recommend her work. Thank-you Jo for a great learning and coaching experience, you train and coach from the heart and that is evident in all that you do.


Freya Blom/Trainer and Coach



I studied to become a certified practitioner of NLP with Jo around 5 years ago. At this time I was toying with the idea of setting up my own business and becoming self-employed but I had some major reservations about doing so.


These reservations had prevented me from taking the leap for a significant number of years. I'd kept myself safe by telling myself I wasn't a risk taker. The NLP skills Jo taught us allowed me to see and feel my options in a different light. They enabled me to take a step back from my "head", from the logical safety first thoughts, to see clearly how things could be and feel for me if I did have my own business. The course training was done in a safe environment with a big emphasis of trust and openness which allowed me to really delve into understanding myself and those around me. I'm now pleased to report I'm a self-employed email marketing consultant with a three-year-old business to my name. I've got the freedom, flexibility and variety that I truly desired.


Jo's skills as an NLP teacher are absolutely at the root of this. Without her, I would not have made the leap and I thank her dearly for this. I often think back to the lessons we learnt and re-use them in many situations when I'm working with new people. I also chuckle to myself remembering our role-plays during the course - lots of laughs, but lots learnt as well! I'd recommend studying with Jo, if you're thinking about it, do it. You won't regret it. Thank you Jo!
