Guest MasterCLASS

A Class With A Master

LIVE online trainings with global experts in the fields of personal and professional development

The NLP MasterCLASS practice group was established in 2004, when we held monthly live meetings at Kings College University London. Our intention was to provide a safe space for anyone interested in practicing coaching, NLP or hypnosis and other disciplines which support personal development. One of the keys to accelerating your learning and development is to find either a mastermind group, which contains people more advanced along your learning path than you are, or to find mentors.

The practice group provided both mastermind and mentoring, and for over a decade we held live meetings with group sizes ranging from 30 to 150. Since 2004 technology has enabled us to deliver the same support in ways which weren't possible back the olden days! Now we invite guest trainers, leaders in their field, people who we know, respect and admire, and who we are certain have a great depth of knowledge, wisdom and experience to share, 


We wish to encourage active participation so tickets are available for the LIVE EVENT only. Replays are only available to members who have subscribed to the Secret Agents of Change membership group.

NLP MasterCLASS Dec 21 .png

Our next guest is Elizabeth Payer-Butler, a Licensed Master Trainer of NLP who has worked with both adults and children for over three decades. She noticed that no matter the problem, adults would often blame their issues on their childhoods. This inspired Elizabeth to wonder - what if these adults had been taught useful skills and mindsets as children instead?

Thus began Elizabeth's mission to teach children in more empowering ways. She has discovered that you can't use adult techniques with kids, because children are faster and smarter. Through better communication and questioning, Elizabeth aims to instill optimism and possibility in children rather than create barriers.

Elizabeth has run Licensed NLP Courses since the 1990s in Toronto, where she also held summer Kids Clubs to teach children fun personal growth tools.


Join us on this MasterClass to learn Elizabeth's insights on more effectively empowering the next generation.

NLP Guest masterCLASS Gloria Hammett Jan 2023.png

Gloria Hammett

Gloria Hammett is one of the co-founders of the International College of Clinical Hypnotherapy.

She worked as a Counselling Psychotherapist within the NHS for many years before learning NLP and Hypnotherapy.  She uses a fusion of Psychotherapy, NLP, and Hypnotherapy to help her patients achieve lasting. 

With over 30 years of experience and expertise in working as a clinician, she has achieved great success working with patients with clinical depression.  In this MasterCLASS, she will share with you her strategies, and how you can help your clients/patients who suffer from depression.

Depression is different from feeling down or sad. Unhappiness is something which everyone feels at one time or another, usually due to a particular cause.  A person experiencing depression will experience intense emotions of anxiety, hopelessness, negativity and helplessness, and the feelings stay with them instead of going away.


Depression is a mental disorder that causes people to experience a depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration amongst other things.  How can we help our clients/patients deal with depression and learn how to live in the world once more?

Owen Fitzpatrick

One of the biggest challenges we face in life is not what happens to us but it is how we construct a story about what happens to us. 

So often we live in our own stories that limit us and trap us. To transform these stories, we need to learn how and why we craft them and, crucially, how to rewrite the stories we tell ourselves.

In this powerful session, you’ll learn how to understand yourself and your habitual stories, so you gain the ability to change the way you experience your reality and make the changes you need to.


The NLP MasterCLASS is especially pleased to host our special guest trainer NLP Master trainer Owen Fitzpatrick.Owen is a globetrotting speaker, international best-selling author, and social psychologist who has spoken to audiences in 30 countries.

Eric Robbie

Submodalities have been described as the differences that make the difference, have you ever really considered what that means, ever wondered just how fine distinctions you can discern, and they mean?


We’re very excited to have Eric Robbie at our Masterclass in March. I (Tina) first met Eric in the 1990s, I was new to NLP, and he was the guest Master Trainer at the London NLP Practice Group.

I was hungry for new experiences and to take my skills to the next level and had heard that Eric had co-trained with Dr Bandler in the 1980s and that he had an elegant way of teaching sensory acuity and Submodalities. Students of Eric said that their abilities really opened in ways unexpected after training with him.

Elizabeth Payer Butler

Our next guest is Elizabeth Payer-Butler, a Licensed Master Trainer of NLP with DHE; when Elizabeth set up her practice initially, she worked with adults like most of us do. After a while she noticed that it doesn’t matter what the problem is, as the client goes into their story and so many of them do the same thing. 

Around 90% of the time they blamed their problems on something that happened in their childhood. And after working with adults for long enough she noticed there was a pattern. Then she got curious, what would their lives have been like if the things she was teaching them as an adult were taught to them as children? 

Thus began a lifelong passion, a mission you could say.

Over the years, more than 3 decades now, she has taught others how you can’t work with children the same way you do with adults. She says the main reason is that the children are a) faster and b) smarter.

She has also discovered what she is calling the seven words to world peace ….. Seven common words that we say and use every day.

Elizabeth has been discovering a way to communicate with our children more effectively, so that you build optimism and possibilities with them rather than create barriers. As well as how to ask good questions.

If you’re going to ask a question of a child, it can’t be the way you ask an adult.

“NLP Means Business”

As the world begins to come out of lockdown and businesses start to return to new normals, there are abundant challenges and opportunities. 

What do you need or want to learn in order to make the most from this time?

If you are an entrepreneur, a coach, therapist, or consultant this is a unique opportunity to learn from a leading business consultant and NLP Master Trainer John LaValle

  • What is the one burning question that when you answer it would have you make the most of this unique moment in history?

  • How can you be ahead of the rest of your field as things get back to a new normal?


This is a unique opportunity to train with John LaValle ( co-trainer with Dr. Richard Bandler the co-creator of NLP).


Alessandro Mora

Is Peak Performance a standard you aspire to?

High level coaching is essential to achieving peak performance and outstanding results in sports. Have you ever considered how the tools, techniques and attitudes used in sports can translate into your personal and professional life?

The NLP MasterCLASS is especially pleased to host our special guest trainer, elite sports coach and NLP Master trainer Alessandro Mora.

Alessandro's clients include Olympiads; so when it comes to the psychology of success he is a well of deep knowledge and he is renowned for making training, coaching and learning fun and enjoyable. 


Kathleen LaValle

What exactly do you mean? HUH!!!

I know you think you understood what I meant, but what you think you understand isn't what I meant.

  • Have you ever wished you could communicate with people better, so they understood you and you understood them?

  • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to persuade and influence people in powerfully compelling ways?

  • Wouldn't you love to know how to identify where the most significant change can happen, quickly and easily?


If you are a coach, therapist, or consultant who has trained in NLP, you will already understand the META MODEL value. Yet few who have trained in NLP use the meta-model effectively, few realize how powerful a diagnostic approach it is, enabling you to work out where the quality change work begins.

Imagine asking smart questions, getting quality information, then knowing what technique is most likely to be the most effective....what would this do to your results, your clients' results, your reputation, your confidence, your repeat business?

This unique opportunity to train with Kathleen LaValle ( co-trainer with Dr. Richard Bandler) is available to ONLY 20 people.
