Maria definitely brings her skills and passion to the training room. I had the privilege of being Maria’s student for her hypnosis course she was running and the training and resources were top level, I got more than I expected. I got all the tools required, a plan set in place, ongoing guidance to get a coaching business up and running.
So grateful I found Maria.

Maria Vamvouklis is an incredible trainer. I had the honor of being a student of Maria’s during my NLP Practitioners Course in February 2020. Maria’s approach is to ensure every student understands the modules and was very accommodating to my level of understanding. Maria is a professional presenter, educator and business owner. I look forward to participating in future courses with The Conscious CEO.

What is NLP and Does it Work?

Understanding neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) can help you achieve excellence in your life, no matter what you desire. It requires a disciplined approach to communication, and to personal and professional development. NLP also explores the connection between neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”) and experiential behaviors (“programming”).

NLP is an art and a science for success based on proven techniques in the proper NLP training format. It’s easy for everyone to learn, which means NLP works for anyone.

What is Hypnosis?

Current thinking in Psychology generally agrees that we all have a Conscious Mind and an Unconscious Mind. Making a change in our attitudes, beliefs and values is not easy for most people to do, because they approach the change consciously. But for a change to happen it needs a two-pronged approach to the Conscious Mind and the Unconscious Mind. Hypnosis facilitates that by making the Unconscious Mind more amenable to suggestion from the Hypnotist or even by you.

The Unconscious Mind is the source of the intelligence of your body and Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy allow you to tap into the power of the Unconscious Mind to change your life for the better.

Hypnosis is a credible, scientifically-based process for successfully creating change at the unconscious level.

What is Time Line Therapy®?

Time Line Therapy® utilises a person’s own internal “Time Line” to work with their unconscious minds in a variety of ways; including, healing emotional traumas and eradicating unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Time Line Therapy® has been so successful in its results that it has been utilised since 1986 by thousands of people including psychiatrists, psychologists, marriage and family counselors, social workers, life and business coaches, and even athletic coaches.

Your “Time Line” is how you unconsciously store your memories or how you unconsciously know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Behavioral change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. People don’t change consciously. The Time Line Therapy® techniques allow you to work at the unconscious level and release the effects of past negative experiences and change “inappropriate” programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.

Who uses nlp?

NLP is used in many fields, including business, sports, art, health, marketing, education and politics, in fact, anywhere that involves human endeavour.

Celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Sophie Dahl, Lily Allen, Gerri Halliwell, Jimmy Carr and Russell Brand also practise NLP techniques. Robbie Williams uses one before going stage to quell his nerves. The chef Heston Blumenthal and former tennis champion Andre Agassi also espouse the techniques.

Who can benefit from NLP?

In short, everyone, because NLP can be used across many situations in life – business, relationships & personal growth.

For example;

  • The Parent who wants to communicate more effectively with their children
  • The Teacher who wants to communicate differently with their students
  • The Business owner who wants to improve their relationship with employees
  • The Person who is starting a journey of self-development
  • The Sales person who wants to understand their customers buying strategies
  • The Network Marketer who wants to sell their product or grow their team more effectively
  • Couples who want to grow their relationship through effective communication
  • The Coach who wants to add more tools to their coaching toolbox to be a more effective coach and get results quickly with clients
  • The Practitioner who wants more skills
  • The Student who wants to study more effectively

In NLP it is said; we were once all whole and we seek that wholeness again
