Changed my life for the better!

I met Emma in 2015, it’s one of the best encounters I could have had because she introduced me to the world of NLP. Having had some experience with hypnotherapy I was very intrigued and willing to find out more. I attended an introduction day which left me craving for more. Over the last 4 years I have been taking the courses ‘Achieve Your Greatness’ offers and it has completely changed my life (you can do it a lot quicker than that, but this was the time frame that suited me). I know it sounds too good to be true but NLP is a amazing tool that you can use to improve your thinking, improve your results in every or any area in your life you choose. I thank Emma for my calm mind, positive thinking, meeting my perfect partner, progressing in my career, better relationships with friends and family, having a happier brain and life. Do difficult times still happen, yes, but I find it a million times easier to deal when these things do come up and I can honestly say these things come up very rarely now.
Thank you Emma, you’ve changed my life and that has had a great influence on the people around me. I saw the difference and feel compelled to help others the same way you have helped me. The school where I work as a PE teacher were impressed with my noticeable positive change and my passion for NLP and have supported me to bring it to the staff and children, it’s just the beginning for me but I am so excited. Thanks to Emma I feel like I can make a real difference in the world for the better. Every thing I do from now on started with meeting Emma.

I feel like I can’t quite express exactly how I feel, but hopefully this gives you some idea......... All I can say is if you’re thinking about it then, you should definitely take that step.

NLP Master Practitioner Training & continued support

I met Emma when I needed help with a presentation - performing my best friend's unofficial wedding ceremony. After just one session, I learned how to anchor calm, as previously my nerves had prevented me from being able to speak without feeling like my heart was going to burst through my rib-cage.

This session lead to an informative NLP Intro Day, leading to the Practitioner course, then most recently the Master Practitioner course.

Emma's training is meticulously thought-out, energetic, supportive and thought-inducing.

I continue my training with Emma, as her knowledge is always growing and I tend to benefit from her learnings (which then filter out to my closest friends and family).

I now run an NLP based coaching company as a result of meeting Emma. I have stayed friends with many people from the courses and I am very grateful for these connections.

Emma is a professional trainer with the added bonus of being someone who also really cares. #truestory. Thanks Emma.


NLP Practitioner course with Achieve your Greatness

I was fortunate to attend the NLP Practitioner and Business NLP practitioner courses run by Emma at Achieve Your Greatness. The experience was amazing. It was a journey in itself. Emma's knowledge and experience is second to none and she delivers the course in a very detailed and thorough manner. Add to all this a series of fun anecdotes to illustrate the learnings and practice with other members and you end with a memorable experience and fantastic tools and processes to further your journey into self development and coaching. Without a doubt, I would recommend you to learn NLP with Emma. Her dedication to NLP and sharing her knowledge coupled with her obvious passion make it an experience not to be missed! Feeling grateful for the great experience I had!


Learning NLP through Achieve Your Greatness

I first embarked on my NLP journey in April 2019. It was a subject that had interested me for a while, but non of the courses had really appealed... until I met Emma that is.

Emma is a superb advocate for NLP. She is passionate and full of energy, yet calm, and it's very apparent from the start that she knows her topic!

Emma's company, Achieve Your Greatness' offers an Introduction to NLP which is a fantastic way to whet your appetite before undertaking the next steps of the Diploma or Practitioner. Emma's method of teaching is fun and well structured. I'm now looking forward to doing my Business Practitioner in the near future. Thank you Emma for all of your support to date, I have throughly enjoyed the journey.

Amazing support and endless teaching

I have the privilege to learn and had 3 courses with Emma McNally, she is always very careful when teaching and offer proper training with practical experiences during our classes. Live and personal examples are used and provide us great learning. She also open her classes for re-visit items that we've learned already, what makes us feel very open to ask new questions as well. The interesting thing is observe her consistence, in teaching with same quality and always open for questions and demonstrations. She also provide the monthly get together, with NLP practitioners, and we have a great chance to review and practice techniques and knowledge, in a dif way and environment. Lately, with Corona virus lock down she has being running hug night, where we practice self help/support. we listen each other and suggest some NLP tools, always with great guidance from Emma. Its Amazing how she promotes the people join us, share possible feelings and within us, practice and support. She has being doing an amazing job!

Emma McNally NLP

Emma McNally is fantastic at what she does. After meeting Emma, I was intrigued by NLP. I attended her one-day introduction to NLP and came away amazed. Emma is such a good trainer and kept the room engaged for the whole day. I have since then completed my diploma in NLP with Emma and had a few one to one session. Emma and NLP have changed my life. I use the NLP tools Emma has given me in everyday life. These tools can be used to solve issues in family life, the work environment or self-preservation. Thank you, Emma, for all you have done for me. You are an incredibly special lady and you are always there for me when I need you.

Excellent trainer and coach!

I have attended a number of trainings and had coaching with Emma and always find her inspirational, informative, as well as fantastically empowering and supportive!
Emmas use of NLP and other techniques in her training and coaching has enabled me to learn so much, including working on my own coaching and training skills and self development.
I owe huge gratitude to Emma and Achieve your greatness!

A review by Dawn Moss

I first met the lovely bubbly Emma at a business women’s networking event and later had the opportunity to spend the day with her at a business conference and get to know her even better. After hearing her talk to lots of people throughout that day about what she did for organisations and individuals in the field of NLP I knew we would be spending a lot more time together.

Since training and qualifying as a Life Coach in 2010 I’d really wanted to add NLP to my tool kit. I thought I understood the power of NLP however, the more you learn the more you realise there’s so much more to the techniques.

I attended one of Emma’s NLP taster courses and then booked onto the next couple of courses and in August 2017 qualified as a NLP Practitioner. Emma is an incredible trainer and master coach and trains at both the conscious and unconscious level. Her understanding of the techniques is superb and because of her in-depth knowledge of NLP she was able to create and offer a really safe and comfortable environment to learn. I’ve only started to understand the benefits of NLP however it’s already proven to be valuable for my business and personally and I’m enjoying the journey thanks to Emma.
