NLP Liverpool

NLP Works - here's why.

Using NLP techniques for personal development, coaching and in a therapeutic context, we can help clients make lasting changes, very quickly.

With NLP, we most often use a "content free" approach which helps clients deal with problematic and unwanted feelings, experiences and behaviours, without needing to go into the detail, unlike counselling.

Here are just a few testimonials to assure you that NLP works.

Driving Phobia

Mrs. Jan R. - Liverpool

Hi George

Just thought I would send you a short note to let you know that I have had two refresher lessons now and although I wouldn't say that I love it, I can certainly get through it and I'm thinking of buying a lovely little renault clio that I've seen!

The other really strange thing that has happened is that I was terrified of walking through a field of cows before I had the NLP, after having it I was waltzing through like I'd never been scared at all, shooing them off and talking to them (still wouldn't go where there's a bull tho'). My partner is amazed!

I'll keep you posted as to the driving tho' as I'm having motorway lessons in a few weeks time (my instructor insists)!

Regards, Jan R.

Spider Phobia

Josh D. - Lancashire

I've been suffering from a crippling phobia of spiders since I can remember, this phobia has influenced my behavior and choices since a very young age.

Most nights I would go to bed feeling very uneasy, and sometimes wake up in a panic if I saw something as simple as a typical house spider in my dreams, it makes for very embarrassing and awkward situations.

As a student living away from home, I've had to call upon the help of new friends I have made over the past couple of years for help whenever I've been confronted with a spider, after the embarrassment and lack of sleep got too much for me, I reached out for help and found George Cunningham.

It feels unreal for me to say but this choice has literally changed my life in every way. I can confidently say that my phobia has been cured. I can deal with spiders myself, but more importantly, they're not on my mind anymore.

Less than a week later I found a huge spider in my bathtub and simply removed it without a second thought. I sleep so much easier, I could not be more grateful for his help.

Thanks, Josh

Interview Preparation

Mr. Tel. B. - Liverpool

I can honestly say that George helped me get my last job!

I had been to a number of interviews in the past and through a mixture of lack of confidence and panic, when I didn’t answer the question to the best of my abilities, I failed to secure the position for myself.

I went to see George in the hope that he could help to build my confidence for my next interview (a job I really wanted).

I was a bit cynical about the hypnotherapy but was willing to try. I had heard of his skill regarding helping people successfully lose weight. However I didn’t want to look thin for the interview I wanted to get my dream job!

What I actually found was that George’s skills and techniques cover many areas, different relaxation techniques, confidence training, listening techniques, interview preparation and practice.

I left my first session with a lot of work to do myself but feeling a lot more confident. Being the person that I am I had managed to work myself into such a state in the days prior to the interview that I was ready to not to bother. However I called George again and by the end of our second session, I was feeling ready, calm, confident and sure the job could be mine.

The interview was the most enjoyable I have had. No panics, even though I could not fully answer some questions I now had the techniques to answer then confidently, to move the interview on and also to calm myself down, ready for the next question.

Thanks George you have helped me on my way to changing my life.

Dave D. - Merseyside

The interview went well, no blushing and no inclination to either.

Answered all the questions and was generally pleased with the way it went.

Got off to a slightly shaky start mind, too much adrenalin pumping, but covertly applied the finger thumb technique and relaxed into things easily. After that I was able to focus and was in there for an hour which is about right so I'm told.

They will let me know within two weeks if I've been successful, but to be honest I'm just really pleased that I could go in there and not make an arse of myself.

Thanks for your help, it made a big difference to my approach I'd definitely recommend you.



Ria K. - Merseyside

Very happy to say that there has been a massive improvement in my sleeping patterns. Have been waking up but used the techniques you suggested and have been falling back asleep despite initial anxiousness. Last night practically slept through. Still have worry about return of dreaded insomnia, however, being positive and trying to build on anchor as you advised.

Will keep you posted. Thanks, Ria.

Cath W. - Manchester

"I live on a busy A-road and the traffic noise carries on throughout the night. I needed ear plugs and soothing music playing in order to have a chance of getting to sleep and still struggled. I also felt tense during the day because I was so aware of the continous noise.

After one session with George I was able to sleep straight through without needing the music, let alone the ear plugs.

George's help has made a massive difference to the quality of my life!"

Performance Nerves / Confidence

Chris H. - Merseyside

I have been on a few courses held by NLP Liverpool, and have found George to be an excellent trainer/coach who makes the experience friendly and fun. Both George and Julie always so welcoming. 

I have always had an issue with my confidence, especially in social situations or where I do not know anyone. I received one-to-one coaching from George, and I am like a new person.

A couple of weeks after my coaching session I found myself in a situation where I would have normally smiled and run away, but I found I was able to converse with a complete stranger. I expect it will be a marathon (not a sprint) before I achieve pure Confidence Nirvana, but George has definitely helped me get over my initial fears and start the journey.

I would definitely recommend NLP Liverpool to friends and family.

Nicola J. K. - Netherlands

Approximately 5 months ago, I contacted George by phone in the hope that he could help me find some confidence.

As a professional opera singer, confidence is essential for me to perform at my best, but as I had done little solo work for a couple of years and have never been the most naturally confident person, nagging doubts appeared as I approached a couple of high profile solo concerts.

I had got the work through successful audition, but my confidence was beginning to fail me in the rehearsals running up to the concert, and I was not singing as well as I knew I could.

A few days before the first performance, I had a session with George (over the phone!), and learned, in the period of less than an hour, several different techniques to overcome my nerves and build my confidence, including visualisation and confidence and relaxation techniques.

I was able to try these out the following afternoon in the final rehearsal, which went better than all my expectations, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was able to also use the techniques efficiently (and discreetly!) during the concerts, despite having to sit in front of the audience on the concert platform for almost a full hour before I got to sing, and was immediately able to ‘switch on’ the techniques to allow me to perform at my best and with confidence.

George’s ability to communicate these techniques allowed me to deal with and eliminate my self-doubt and do my job well, and I will continue to use these techniques and consult George to help me continue to be a more confident performer.

I have also since had a face-to-face consultation with George – this time for pain relief and preparation for childbirth, and am also using these techniques to great benefit. Thank you George.

Diane S. - Liverpool

Just thought I'd pop you a quick note to say that the concert last Sunday was a success! Thanks for all of your help. The nerves did not come back - well may be just a little tiny bit but that is all it was, just a little bit!

It was a great experience and can't wait to do it again.

Thanks once again George.

I'd definitely recommend your services to anyone I feel would benefit!

Take care. Diane S. (Liverpool)


Alex M. (aged 10) - Liverpool

Proof the NLP Spelling Strategy works.
Alex M. - Merseyside (aged 10)

The above note of thanks was received from a young client, two days after we worked on a strategy for dyslexia. After our session, at which Alex learned to spell ciprofloxacin, amongst other words, both backwards and (more importantly) forwards, Alex decided he wanted to write to express his thanks.

He used the strategy we installed to learn the spelling of many of the words used above immediately after our session, then two days later, he used these words (and the strategy) to compose the note above.

I am very grateful to Alex for his wonderful note - George

Life Coaching

Paul F. - Merseyside

I just wanted to write and thank you for the changes I have noticed already. The session completely exceeded my expectations

I am aware of the practical advice you gave me and am already applying it. I also know that there is far more hidden beneath what I recall, and I look forward to the impact this will have as I move forward.

I feel free for the first time in a long time and found myself waking up at 5 am this morning scribbling down a collection of ideas for a global reaching business that is much larger than any of my previous ideas.

I want to do the practitioner course as learning more about managing myself in the ways you showed me last night would be fantastic.” - P.F., Liverpool, 2013.

Mr. Nick M. - Hampshire

About a year and a half ago I had a job which I hated, I received no appreciation and I had nothing to expect from it. I tried to follow various alternative careers, but I was not successful at even getting a first assignment into any of them. And with every failure I'd lower my ambitions further, to only fail again. Eventually I ran out of ideas and it felt like I'd retire from what I called "the shittiest of all jobs" (and I was only 38). It was then that I was introduced to George.

George was able to help me come up with fresh ideas, which I hadn't thought of before.

But more important than that, he restored my faith in myself; he made me realise that being rejected as "overqualified" is actually a good thing; that I should set my goals at the level dictated by my skill, and not at the one dictated by my present situation; that if an employer doesn't want me it's because that position isn't good enough for me... Soon I started generating ideas myself, and I was finally getting interviews.

George was always there, keeping me focused on my long term objectives and preventing me from slipping into the dangerous "I want to get out of this job no matter what" mentality. George helped me make the right decisions at crucial points, and I eventually managed to start a career as a housing market economist, which I enjoy and the long term prospects are very good.

And having shorted this out I was able to move the focus from career to life, where George's help is again proving invaluable.

I would recommend George to everyone, for his ability to motivate and to inspire self-belief, his vast amount of resources and his genuine care for the outcome. George's support is not limited to the scheduled hour every week; George would give me an "extra" call before an interview and chat me into the right mood to succeed, for as long as it would take.

Thank you George!
