Judy Bartkowiak

Passionate about children, teens and their families. I'd love to train you in working with families and in schools using NLP, EFT, Play and Art.

I am passionate about spreading the word about how amazing NLP is for working with children, teens and families. 

I do this through training others in what I do, writing practical hands-on books to help parents, coaches and teachers, plus workbooks for children, tweens and teens. I run NLP & EFT Kids, a coaching practice focusing on working with children and teens as well as their parents. 

Over the years, I have developed skills in working with all ages but since the pandemic and the huge rise in mental health issues, my client base is mostly children over 10yrs of age and predominantly teens with issues around self-esteem, anxiety, anger, friendship and specific issues such as self-harming, eating disorders and depression. I use a range of activities and techniques; NLP of course, EFT tapping, Matrix Reimprinting for birth and early childhood trauma, Reiki, Art and Play therapy, Mindfulness, crystal therapy and essential oils. I have also recently trained in Pranic Psychotherapy. 

I train mums and dads, existing practitioners, teachers and social workers. We train face to face, online in groups and individually. 

I also offer a self-study course which enables you to work at your own speed, in your own time slots and yet also connect to me and the bigger student group who are training live. There are opportunities to attend face to face practice sessions, demos and swap sessions where you can practice the techniques with your fellow students. 

Many students train with me so that they can add NLP to their existing skill-set and equally I add in Art Therapy, Mindfulness, EFT (tapping), Matrix Reimprinting and Picture Tapping as well as Essential oils and crystals. 

My latest book 'Understanding children and teens - a practical guide for parents, teachers and coaches' is 'the book of the course' as it were and is excellent for existing NLP Practitioners looking to apply their skills in the world of families. 

'Empower your kids! - A coaching guide for parents' is ideal if you want to help your children with anger, anxiety, low self-esteem, learning struggles, coping with change, fear and many other issues. It covers both NLP and EFT techniques.

Art Therapy Workshop

I recently attended Judy's Art Therapy Workshop. It was a fantastic day offering me an insight into processes used in NLP. Judy is a very experienced and successful practitioner. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing practice and would highly recommend attending one of her workshops.

My son also recently completed her anxiety busting programme and I have seen a huge improvement in his resilience and the way he tackles difficult situations. Thank you so much!

Judy Bartkowiak Making Me Confident!

I was nervous and excited about starting NLP sessions, I knew that I needed to improve my internal thought process so I could thrive in my personal life as well as my business life. Judy was able to give me the training that I needed to build my self-worth and the confidence I gain was almost immediate. I really enjoyed my time with Judy and I'm recommending her to others that I know need some support - so they too can feel great again!

A review by Michelle Thomas

I have just attended the residential NLP for Kids workshop with Judy.

I discovered Judy when I ordered some of her books from Amazon as I first began my NLP journey. I was particularly interested in learning more about how NLP could help parents and children in their day to day relationships.

The books were fascinating and full of interesting and useful facts and ideas. Once I had completed my practitioner course I decided I wanted to focus my practice purely on parents and children and I contacted Judy about attending her specialised course.

Its been an excellent experience! Judy demonstrated her considerable skills in working with both children and parents over the course of the week. The course was full of insight on how the techniques work to support both children and parents.

I am now energised and excited to begin my own practice and cannot recommend the training enough if you are interested in working in this area!

Thanks Judy!

I highly recommend Judy's course. With the course you are provided a nice selection of her books, correspondence with her as well as live Skype (or other resources) sessions! It is wonderful. Her support is incredible and she is magnificent in her teaching methods. So very blessed to have studied under her!

You know that finding a real professional training in NLP is not easy. I kept looking long on the net and contact many people before choosing Judy and I have to say that is was the perfect choice. Her professionalism and her large experience on NLP helped me a lot. Her course is well designed and fun to follow full of example and practice. Judy is always willing to help when we have questions, she has a nice energy and each appointment on the net was a real pleasure. I really learned a lot. Also interaction with others members of the group were so interesting it helped us to compare point of view and give us ideas. I completed my NLP kid's certification 5 month ago and in my everyday practice it makes a big difference... I really recomamd Judy and her training.

I attended a 4 day NLP kids course in August 2015 ran by Judy. It was very informative,easy to follow and fun. I have also read many of Judy's books, which again are very good.
Judy allowed me to stay at her home and shared her vast knowledge and experiences with me and a fellow student.
Judy has given me the confidence to start my own coaching practice.... thanks Judy
I would recommend this course to every parent and teacher
