Suzanne says,

As an Ambassador for ANLP in New Zealand I have been able to make connections between not only the UK and New Zealand, but across several countries and the connections and harmony from that are ongoing.  NLP has a good presence here in New Zealand and I am proud to represent ANLP here, to show and share the amazing work done by the team, especially Karen, in setting standards and offering high quality, independent advice and support to practitioners, trainers and the public.  I hope in the future for even closer relationships between the UK body and NZ and to be able to offer an even greater presence for ANLP here in the antipodes.

Originally from the UK, and with a healthcare background, I spent nearly a decade as an Associate Professor in Health Care before transitioning to focus on running my own company full time in 2017 (mBraining4Success, which incorporates The Healthy Workplace). I remain passionate about the potential of NLP in healthcare and I have written two books in the field (NLP and Coaching for Health care Professionals: Developing Expert Practice in 2007 and Practical Leadership in Nursing and Health Care: A multi-professional approach in 2014). My approach is one of passionate real life application to make a positive difference in the world.

I trained in the UK as an NLP Practitioner, Master Practitioner and Trainer and subsequently have continued to learn with some of the best people in the field including Grant Soosalu, Marvin Oka, Robert Dilts, Rick Gray and many others and I love to be able to get to the NLP Conference to hear the latest thinking and developments from a range of great speakers. In 2013 I trained in mBIT (multiple Brain Integration Techniques) which uses the latest neuroscience findings about the head, heart and gut brains to extend my NLP coaching and training. I am now one of two Master Coaches and Master Trainers in the world and this has further increased my desire to step up even further and contribute in the world, particularly within the area of creating healthy workplaces where people can thrive.

As a founding member of the NLP Research Conference Committee and an editorial board member (and currently the Editor in Chief) of the Current Research in NLP journal, I continue to seek to push forward the boundaries and particularly the evidence base of NLP practice. I continue to work passionately with ANLP to increase the profile of research and to support members to gain research skills. I love to assist and supervise people stepping up in research and regularly offer support to NLP practitioners looking to create an evidence base for their own practice – this was the drive behind the Research Development Series in Rapport – which began in 2012. In 2017 I was privileged to be part of a group of people who had an article published in the International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine which explored the use of the double dissociation technique for height phobia (no easy achievement). I think it is clear I am passionate about growing NLP and helping to create the evidence base underpinning it.

I am delighted that since 2015 ANLP now has ANLP (New Zealand) membership package available, which gives NZ members access to discounted insurance with Marsh.
