Matt Caulfield

Matt Caulfield

Matt Caulfield is an Internationally Licensed NLP Trainer and high performance coach with over a decades experience
“Wise, funny and irreverent”

Matt weaves stories and anecdotes into his teaching that makes a style that is both compellingly interesting and easily understandable, his genuine passion for the subject comes across as he delivers his training with a wry smile and wickedly dry sense of humour. He balances a highly pragmatic approach to his training with the bravado and vagaries of a showman.

“Matt is a brilliant performer and a wonderful entertainer. He cleverly weaves into his stories little gold nuggets of wisdom that drop with a whisper into our unconscious to slowly unfold in our minds as he leads us giggling down the path to shuttle between conscious and unconscious competence.”
Julie Rutherford

“I highly recommend Matt Caulfield, He is continually updating his training with the most up-to-date skills I have developed and one of those licensed internationally through the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™”
Dr Richard Bandler

A review by Sue McGregor

I have completed both my NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner with Matt. His passion and enthusiasm for his subject know no bounds. His sessions were fast moving, energetic and fun. The way he imbeds earning, I still find fascinating. Just when you think 'no more information, please', it all makes sense and falls into place.
I would recommend Matt to anyone looking to gain greater knowledge of NLP techniques and how they can be applied to everyday life.
