"Having spent over 30 years working for large corporations I have been on many many courses delivered both by internal trainers and external consultants . I can honestly say without doubt Jim is the most effective trainer I have encountered , his style is laid back, his knowledge is vast and I would go as far as saying the course was life changing. I am now looking at what further training I can do with Jim, truly inspirational ! Thank you so much for this experience

"I started training with Jimmy at 62 years of age, working them has truly transformed my life. I lost 3 stone got into my best shape ever, & over came a phobia of swimming i had since i was 8 years old"

“I have been co-delivering workshops and doing interviews with Jim and had an amazing time during it. Jim has such a deep knowledge of the human behaviour and expertise on how to help people change it. Our interviews and workshops have mainly been around human mind as I am a neuroscientist and I was genuinely impressed with Jim's knowledge about the human brain and deep interest in this area. I have no doubt that with his profound understanding behaviour and the root causes of it and enormous experience in NLP, hypnotherapy and other techniques Jim can handle any case of changing human behaviour and pioneer new techniques of how to do it. I also believe Jim is a great researcher and can achieve lots in this area too. It is always a real joy and bunch of insight working with him so would highly recommend it to anyone!”

Gabija Toleikyte, Ph.D

"I completed my diploma in Hypnotherapy & NLP Practitioner with NLP Centre of Excellence trainers  Jimmy/Sara in Summer 2011 and I have never looked back!  I now have a "very successful hypnotherapy & NLP coaching clinic in Dubai.  I special in weight loss coaching & work mainly with women in many other areas including hypnobirthing, fertility & body confidence.  I am so grateful for the training which I received at NLP Centre of Excellence and if anyone is deliberating whether they should train or not, I would say GO FOR IT!!! The opportunities are out there to grow your own business, meet incredible like minded people (such as Jimmy & Sara!) whilst making a difference to other people's lives.  The course content was very in depth and practical and I could start applying what I had learnt immediately. There is also ongoing support whenever you may need it which is really refreshing." Rachel Foy

"Just a very quick update after completing my NLP practitioners course with the NLP Centre of Excellence, I have won my first International competition as part of the England team for British Dressage and I have 6 weekly clients coming to me for training sessions, all of which have come word of mouth recommendations (my goal is 10 clients), so I wanted to thank you in helping me on the road to achieve what I now know I can". Alison


"Petruzzi, an Australian, is one of the best qualified coaches of his kind in the world. He has worked with several top teams including West Ham and Crystal Palace and his advanced training methods look like paying dividends on the pitch.

The lads have taken to him and shown belief in his methods but his work is structured and a long-term thing."

“I have read through the manuscript and the Excel with NLP book is excellent, throughout my 18 year playing career as a professional footballer I used all the techniques mentioned. This is something that came naturally to me and had a big effect on my journey playing professional sport, often using the disappointments and setbacks of which there are many along the way (as all athletes will testify) in a positive manner to drive me on and to achieve my goals. For those people who are not fortunate to have the natural gift and don't find it easy to get self motivated the various practical exercises explained in the book will be invaluable not only to athletes but to anyone in life who has goals and ambitions and want to be the achievers in life”.

“My Son Jordan visits Jim once a year for a 6 weeks course, he has been going to see Jim since he was 14. He has always been a Talented Footballer, but he needed something extra to help him achieve his Football Goals.  I can say that the time he has spent with Jim has changed my Sons life both on and off the Football Field. with all the help and advise he has given him both Physical and mentally. My Son now has a 2 year Professional Football Contract; visits Jim every year for top up sessions  We cant thank Jim enough for everything he has done to help Jordan achieve his Goals and I don’t think my Son would be were he is today if we hadn't met Jim.

Paul Trinci Lynne

“I attended Excel With NLP's NLP Practioner Coach course in February/March 2011. Jimmy was one of the lead trainers on the course. His expertise and knowledge and experience ensured that the group were engaged throughout and felt able to share their thougths and feelings throughout the course. Jimmy was also open with his own experiences and through sharing stories about his coaching career, inspired and helped the group make real sense of the techniques we learnt. The course was so inspiring that I have signed up for the NLP Master Practitioner! I have no hesitation in recommending Jimmy and Excel with NLP for any coaching/training/NLP needs you may have.” May 3, 2011

This is by far the best training that I have undertaken and completed to date in my career, and I have a Social Work and Management Degree! Not only has the training enabled me to develop professionally and attain my goals, it has also enabled me ‘to look at myself’ and develop personally, improving my health and personal relationships. The training is stimulating and interesting with lots of variety which meets all learning styles. Sara has fantastic interpersonal skills were you feel valued throughout the duration of the course – you certainly are not ‘just another bum on a seat’.

“I've just attended an 8-day course organized and partly delivered by Sara. The course exceeded my expectations. I learnt so much I recommend unreservedly this course to anybody with an interest in NLP and human behaviour. Sara and her colleague were truly amazing. So much practical experience to share with delegates. I really should have gone on the course years ago; but better late than never. I've already started to put my learning into practice and will, I've no doubt, be refining my skills in years to come. Thank you Sara. Richard. Director UK-HSE LTD” February 1, 2012

Richard Butler

“Sara‘s confidence, positivity and self-belief are a shining example of what can be achieved through NLP. The more experienced I become as a physiotherapist the more I realise the importance of rapport, understanding my client’s viewpoint and what motivates them. Thanks to Sara I am now able to do this with confidence and at a level that I did not think that I could achieve. Sara’s popularity is not rocket science she just has that special gift to enlighten, energise and enthuse anyone into successfully pursuing their dreams. Thank you Sara I hope this will be the start of a long and special friendship.” January 9, 2012

“I can whole-heartedly recommend Sara and her NLP centre of excellence.
Without exaggeration I can honestly say that the 8 day practitioner training course I attended has totally turned my life around. Prior to attending the course I had been suffering low moods, lack of motivation and had no vision of the future, I had struggled with self-belief and confidence from being a young child, states that had hindered my professional progress.
I now have a new lease of life and feel excited for the future, my self belief is now much closer to the belief that others have in my abilities and I am grabbing every opportunity with a smile on my face.
Thank you Sara, you helped to save me!” February 3, 2012

Hi all I have just signed up for CBT course, and I am looking forward to expanding my skills in another direction. It is now almost two years since I started studying with Sara Lou-Ann Jones and Jimmy Petruzzi who are both fantastic trainers, and the help and assistence that I received when I was studying in Bury went far beyond anything that I expected. I am now a full time practising hypnotherapist in Dublin. I would have no difficulty in recommending Jimmy and Sara to anyone, many thanks Fran

Fabulous person and a coach with clarity and focus. He is amazing at allowing you to be you by asking just the right questions that push your buttons and make you think. Since our session, I have attracted an appearance on live TV Thank you Jimmy

I attended Jimmy Petruzzi's NLP seminars in Australia and over in the UK, and I have to say as a semi professional footballer I have learned so much about the psychological aspects of my game and it has really helped me push beyond and move forward into becoming a full time professional. Highly recommend Jimmy Petruzzi to all who want to excel in not only sports but life in general.
I did my NLP Sports Practitioner training with Jim a few years back, and the entire training was enjoyable, educational and really engaging. Jim is an excellent teacher, and has subsequently gone way above and beyond, helping me with various career and personal development challenges. I have also been to a couple of the workshops, which have been equally educational and enjoyable. I would be more than happy to recommend the NLP Centre of Excellence to anybody.

Jimmy Petruzzi is a brilliant trainer and a good guy. I have been on several courses with Jimmy and his extensive knowledge of the subjects he teaches shines through in his presentations. I would say that he has had a big impact on my life and I am most grateful to him for this.

Just completed the NLP Diploma course. Excellent two days with Jimmy who was thoroughly engaging and explained everything at an easy level to understand.
