Accredited Trainer in NLP (ANLP) Master/Executive Coach (ILM) specialising in personal development/recovery, and Psychologically Informed Environments, UK/Portugal/virtual. Teacher at Insight Timer, Writer, Artist.

Hello, and welcome to my profile page. 

My particular expertise is in providing high value training, coaching and consultancy in NLP and Psychologically Informed Practices. I'm passionate about what I do and consider it  an enriching occupation. My ethics and values are equality of opportunity, high standards, and value for investment. Alongside the magic, you will learn evidence-based principles and methods that you can transfer into any area of your life. 

My life journey to date is rich and varied, with love, joy, opportunities and challenges. The challenges seem to play their part in our learning, and I consider myself resilient and optimistic.  I bring a lived understanding of how NLP and psychological skills can help you to develop your resilience and potential, in your map, as well as adding to your professional practice.  

Much of my work is in the public and third sectors, and across different cultures. Clients include Senior Executives through to people fighting their way out of destitution or recovering from acute trauma.  At the end of the day, people are people, and I believe that anyone can learn, and anyone can change. 

As a double certified NLP Trainer, I’m blessed to have learned directly from both Richard Bandler and John Grinder, and indeed the wonderful Robert Dilts.  

It’s important to make coaching and training accessible, so there is one bursary available on all courses. I work in close collaboration with training partner  Keziah Gibbons, also an ANLP certified trainer and a mistress of mindfulness, meditation and innovation. We run open, in house and virtual ANLP accredited courses. I'm really delighted with our platform for the virtual courses, and how well we have been able to esnure great learning experiences, and great learning. 

In 2012, I was honoured to receive a visiting Senior Fellowship in Coaching from the University of Lincoln, in Business Coaching. I am  co-author of  An Introduction to Coaching. and Blank Minds and Sticky Moments in Counselling: Practical Strategies and Provocative Themes,   I also specialise in developing Psychologically Informed Environments in the Workplace. There are some free resources which you can access on my Insight Timer page. 

Please do contact me if you would like to join a course or ask any more information. Thankyou.

Excellent NLP Course - I didn't want it to end!

Wonderful diploma course with Jan Russell. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and looked forward to each session. Jan is an excellent teacher and ensured the sessions were engaging with a good mix of practical exercises, didactic and discussions. Grateful for the extra tools I now have in my toolbox, I can see how invaluable they are going to be. Really recommend Jan's teaching style and format. Excellent all the way.

Janice Russell Review

Jan has been my NLP tutor for the last 3 years, supporting my NLP journey to Mastery. I have loved every minute of working with Jan, she is a fantastic tutor, and I couldn't have reached my NLP Masters level without Jan. I would recommend Jan to anyone wishing to develop their NLP learning and skills. Thank you Jan

Using NLP on our Website

Whilst redesigning our company website we called upon the services of Jan Russell to help us with the language and content within the site.
Jan made a huge difference by re-wording technical jargon and creating a much softer approach. Having a third party view of someone who does not work in our industry helped tremendously, allowing us to write content in a much more reader friendly way.
Jan was very efficient and thorough and came up with some brilliant ideas, drawing upon her vast NLP knowledge and expertise. She also communicated well with us throughout the whole process so we kept to time schedules.
We are so pleased we sought Jan's services and would highly recommend using her!

A review by Thanasis Mamalis

Instead of finding a course in Denmark – the land of education – I followed my intuition and participated at Jan’s practitioner course in Portugal. And I discovered Jan! Not sure if she really knows about the amount of inspiration that she provides her participants with. Her story telling, her metaphors, her experience and knowledge – her self! Thank you for an intense and wonderful week!

A review by Elaine Clowes

Jan is the type of trainer that only comes along occasionally; that special trainer who lives and breathes their subject; who relaxes and enjoys every session; who goes with the flow of the people in the room. It has been a great pleasure to learn from her throughout the practitioner and masters; the way Jan delivers, even if you only ever use it to master yourself it's worth every penny and more. Thank you Jan.

I have trained with Jan twice now and I'm not exaggerating when I say both experiences were life changing, what I have taken away has helped me astronomically both personally and professionally. She is a master at what she does and is a joy to learn from, excellent trainer.

I have had the fortune of being Jans delegate for over 6 years, becoming an NLP master practitioner most recently. Jans knowledge and skill show in everything she facilitates. Her style and ethos makes her training real and adaptable. Her ethical approach has allowed me access to high quality training,which I am forever grateful for. Thoroughly recommended! Life Changing!

Kept our focus on learning and being the best we could be. Demonstrated great knowledge and practical examples which gave us great learning. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommended her
