A review by Paul Collin

I completed my NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapy and Spectrum Therapy training with Ian and A Mind 4 Adventure. It was a truly brilliant life changing experience. Ian is a master in the field of NLP delivery both on one to one and when in a group format. Ian has the ability to develop individuals and work with people to enable true learning and giving a proper deeper meaning to self development.
Ian has a very professional relaxed and thought provoking delivery style and I would recommend Ian and A Mind 4 Adventure to anyone who is considering expanding their mind in the field of NLP.

A review by Andrew Holland

I have now completed both my Prac and Master Prac with Ian and "A Mind 4 Adventure". I thought that my Prac course was a truly magnificent experience and felt incredibly well prepared to proceed with my practice. What has happened since completing my Master Prac has just blown me away. The experience that Ian has to offer in so many fields is exciting and absorbing. He has a style and mastery that suited all of us in the learning space. The experience so far has been so enlightening and I feel fully prepared to practice in whatever field I choose to. I look forward to opportunities for the future in which we can work together for another truly fantastic learning experience. I would highly recommend Ian and "A Mind 4 Adventure", so much so, that I would say he is the best sharer of information I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Thank you.

I believe you get what you focus on, however in this instance I have received way more than I expected. Thank you and I look forward to further opportunities to grow and develop.
