"“ In the time that I have known Darren Shaw, we have had many NLP sessions where Darren practised a range of different techniques. I have found these sessions to be extremely beneficial & also enjoyable. As a Life Coach/NLP Practitioner, Darren is always very successful in changing my perception of an issue and in finding new ways in which to deal with situations. I know him to be a perceptive and positive individual whose motivation is to help others to better themselves, and I would highly recommend him. ” "

"“ Darren seems to know exactly the right questions to ask to come to the right conclusions. I went to him with what I thought was my biggest problem! but by the end of the first session, my problem was the one that id been using the other problem to run away from. Once we knew what the main problem was we were able to tackle it step by step, one step at a time. I think that anyone that is stuck in a cycle that keeps repeating and is doing more harm than good and can't seem to stop it should definitely see Darren Shaw.”"

"“Darren is very devoted and passionate about helping people with life change. When observing an exercise given at his workshop he has the ability to react very quickly to any problems people have and comes up with very good strategies straight away and finds solutions. He is genuine in passing on his great knowledge onto those willing to listen. Darren doesn't only teach at his sessions. As soon as he spots someone having a problem or struggling with something in life , he is ready to react to that person's need in a very kind but often playful way, depending on situation.” "

"I've been coached by Darren Shaw for a few months now during which time he helped me to change my perception on my abilities by teaching me techniques such as transforming my state and creating more open mind. The sessions with Darren are always fun as he is great in giving real-life examples and explaining complex textbook based models and tools in an easy to understand way. There is always plenty of time to practice what you've just learned, giving you that great feeling of accomplishment "yes, I got this!"I have left every single session with Darren feeling much happier, empowered and aware of my past reactions to certain situations, choices I made in past and different approaches I could use in future. Darren's unique coaching style using NLP techniques, hypnosis and psychology, combined with his deep interest in newest trends and scientific research provides his clients with a highly capable and innovative coaching expert. I would highly recommend Darren Shaw to all those who are looking for something more in their lives, are willing to have their minds open, change their thinking patterns and shatter those limiting beliefs that hold them back from whatever they would like to achieve. With Darren, you are in good hands. "
