Valerie is a qualified Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP® and a member of several professional NLP bodies. She has followed a diverse career path, having initially qualified and trained as a dietician she then went on to retrain as an accountant, where she forged a successful business career across a number of sectors for over 20 years.
She has always had a passion for helping others and has been an active hands-on volunteer both in the UK and abroad for many years. She has used the combination of both her business skills and her compassionate nature to try to make a difference in the life of those less fortunate. She was an active volunteer for over 9 years, providing support to people in emotional distress and struggling to cope with everyday life.
She has always had a fascination with the mind-body link, which she has explored over a number of years complemented by her interest in meditation and reiki. It was this interest and her own struggle to manage what could sometimes be quite debilitating bouts of IBS that led her to NLP. Having explored the way NLP could help her with a practitioner, she decided to take this further by qualifying herself.
Valerie, in addition to being a Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP®, holds a number of other therapeutic qualifications, which she combines with NLP for maximum results.
