I’ve done several of Graham’s courses, they are great. He always explains everything so clearly and with an element of fun, too. My favourite so far is the NLP course, I found it fascinating and have gone on to help people, and myself, with the knowledge I gained. Looking forward to doing another of Graham’s courses soon.

Kevin Gillespie

I’m currently enrolled in two of Graham’s courses. Both of are perfect for what I’m looking to augment my coaching skills. His instruction is clear, complete and very personable. I’ve enjoyed the courses and value I’ve received.

passionate about his work and he deeply cares about people.
