Hi there, I'm Tristan Soames. I'm an NLP Master Trainer and Coach based in Ibiza. I’m also a photographer, writer, digital nomad, entrepreneur, motorcycle rider, cat lover and deep-thinker. I’m an explorer of both inner and outer worlds.

Coming from a traumatic childhood, NLP has been instrumental in helping me to transform my dysfunction and experience of life. It has enabled me to create a life of remarkable freedom for myself and I now facilitate that in others. I’m passionate about sharing what I’ve learnt on my journey - the difference that has made a difference for me - which now inspires and catalyses change in individuals and communities around the world.

I love travelling and working in places close to my heart - especially India, South Africa, the UK and Ibiza where I run certified NLP courses and retreats each year. I’m in the business of helping people create an extraordinary life, whatever that means to them, one where the seemingly impossible becomes inevitable.

The central question I’m asking and attempting to answer through my work is, “Who are we, why are we here, and how can live a life full of passion and purpose?”

In order to answer that question, I spend time with a whole variety of people - thought leaders, coaches, therapists, musicians, friends, poets, entrepreneurs and scientists - learning, modelling and sharing their ‘secrets’ of success.

I’ve been studying NLP for the last 20 years. I was certified as an NLP Master Trainer in 2011 by Sue Knight and have trained with many of the pioneers of NLP. I like to think that we stand on the shoulders of giants and I feel deeply privileged to have had many remarkable mentors and coaches in my time.

I’m endlessly fascinated by the deep structure of language and subjective experience. I’ve developed my own, very unique way of creating transformational experiences for people around the world. And I train people from NLP Practitioner right the way up to Master Trainer level.

My specific focus is creating profound online and off-line experiences in a way that is real-time and emergent, so that the change we seek, happens now. The implications of this are exponential transformation for us as individuals, communities and ultimately the world.

By eliciting the structure of excellence in top performers and modelling proven strategies for success, we can create models that work, which are backed up by leading-edge science and that enable each of us to step into our highest potential and calling in life.

I believe the best way to change the world is in concentric circles. As Gandhi said, we must be the change we seek to make in the world. When we start with ourselves and work out from there, we can create remarkable change.

I don’t claim to have all the answers and I still have lots to learn, but I love sharing what I’ve learnt along the way. So if you’re ready to discover how to begin mastering your thinking, emotions, behaviour and life then do get in touch. It would be an honour to support you on your journey.

Very sincerely, Tristan

A review by Louise Southam

've worked with Tristan for over 2 years now, both having him as my coach and also attending his NLP courses. Tristan has a very deep knowledge of NLP and how he uses this with his clients is amazing. Having attending 3 of his NLP courses, I always leave with a deeper knowledge of the NLP tools and how to use them both on myself and with my own clients. His courses are aimed at all levels, whether it's for personal awareness or to use in your personal or professional life. He makes them engaging and fun and to top it all....he's a master in his field so you are learning from someone really knows how to make a difference.

A review by Rob Cameron

I first talked to Tristan in April 2013 having been introduced by a mutual acquaintance, what struck me about Tristan immediately was his openness, integrity and depth. At the time I had doing an NLP practitioner on my list of things to do in the future, but having spoken to Tristan, I opted to join the multi-level programme that he was running in Bournemouth starting in May 2013.

Fast forward 3 years and I believe that that was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I have discovered so much about myself, made many changes, learnt so much & made many wonderful friends in that time. As well as progressing through practitioner, master practitioner and trainer. Tristan has been instrumental in this; his ability to work real-time with what is current for the group, work with structure, be vulnerable and open & share his tremendous NLP knowledge are all part of this fantastic experience.

If you are thinking about learning NLP, I have no hesitation in recommending Tristan.

Tristan is a very special person. Learning with him is exciting, stretching, fun and enlightening, all at the same time.
He is a wonderful combination of warm, open, insightful and mischievous; with in-depth knowledge and talents to support all of us on the course to gain so much.
Wonderful experiences every time.

A review by Justin Shill

I’ve got the power! Since I was introduced to Tristan and NLP, I have learnt that we all have the power. The power to make our lives so much better. Better in any way you can imagine. Better in any way you wish.

Looking back at myself when my training began, I was someone with little confidence, I was unhappy in certain areas of my life and financially struggling also. It was suggested that I have a monthly one-on-one session and free webinars to attend, which would enable me to start practicing NLP. The knowledge I gained in a short amount of time was incredible. It opened doors to understanding the basic issues and started solving them instantly. In actual fact I started solving them myself instantly.

That’s how I now perceive practicing NLP. Self solving. Therefore anyone can do it, but to do that you need the knowledge, and that is passed on with enthusiasm and kindness by Tristan.

Later I was fortunate enough to go to a retreat in Ibiza with Tristan and 10 others. All the practitioners ranged in skill level, but that didn’t matter at all. The more advanced were happy to share their knowledge with the recent recruits (like myself). This meant having 11 ‘Tristans’ helping train myself.

I quickly went to a higher level and that was mind blowing. The power to help others, to go into deep structure and problem solve, using clean questions, listening to language and watching physical reactions was beautiful. It filled me with such happiness…

Now the future is firmly in my hands. Life​ is ​one powerful journey.

I began working with Tristan in order to discover direction in both my life and work that is meaningful to me to rediscover my sense of self which I felt I’d lost along the way.

Tristan is masterful at creating a safe space for exploring, learning and sharing both during coaching and his training courses. His generosity, time and skill in helping me shift my perspectives and old ways of thinking far exceeds that of other coaches I’ve used in the past.

With Tristan’s expert coaching, encouragement and NLP training I learned it’s ok to be me, it’s ok to make mistakes and how to receive feedback gracefully amongst a huge list of other things. I’ve transformed in so many ways there are too many to list. I’m the same and yet different!

His workshops and training courses are always fun and transformative. No matter the level of NLP experience, there’s learning for everyone.

This experience of coaching and training was and continues to be transformational for me. As a result I now have direction and purpose in my life and my mojo is back!! Cool eh?!

A review by Sarah Simpson

Although I had some experience of NLP through friends, I remained quite cynical.

Tristan opened my eyes to the magic and power of NLP. His course changed the way I approach so much of my life and others and has made an extremely positive difference in my life.

I thoroughly recommend Tristan’s unique style of training. I found the course surprisingly empowering and Tristan’s mastery of the group meant that I made some inspiring and remarkable friends.
