Ellen’s Testimonials

Recommendations completed by our students and posted on to ours and there own Linkedin  profile

“I had heard about NLP and was keen to find out more when Ellen offered me the opportunity to join a free 1 day introduction course to NLP. I was particularly keen to explore how NLP could help me improve my work performance through improved interactions with my clients and colleagues. I have attended several training workshops delivered by Ellen which have helped me to develop a greater self awareness of my own behaviour and thought patterns and their impact on myself and others. Ellen provided a safe environment where I developed new skills and methods which helped me develop more positive relationships especially with people I find challenging to engage with. Ellen is a strong facilitator. She is very knowledgeable about NLP and translates the principles into different work scenarios thereby making them accessible and practical for her audience. She shares her experience and knowledge freely and I value her insight. I have received numerous positive feedback from clients and colleagues who observed positive changes in my approach since working with her. I recommend Ellen as an NLP trainer and facilitator to people who seek to improve their work performance through greater self awareness and understanding of NLP techniques.” Michaela Mueller Senior Manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers hired Ellen as a Training and Development consultant in 2009, and hired Ellen more than once.

Being coached and trained by her, one can’t help but catch the bug as you get hooked by the “light-bulb moments”. I have lost count of the number of people I have recommended to Ellen and The Learning Path…suffice it to say she would be my first port of call when wanting to explore NLP further in business arenas and for personal growth.” Caroline Gee Organizational & Learning Development with Change Management hired Ellen as a Career Coach in 2007, and hired Ellen more than once

“Ellen is a gem. She cares about everyone who attends her courses as if they were her best friends. Her personality and attention to detail is a delight. I have attended two NLP courses run by her company, The Learning Path. Both were excellent. The standard of presentation, content and support were always high quality.

With a multitude of trainers and courses out there it is sometimes hard to make selections. However Ellen was recommended to me and I can see why she is certainly one of the best that I have encountered in this area. If you are inquisitive about NLP and want to explore this area with a total expert then look no further.” Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity Debbie Macmillan Education Business Partnership adviser at Worcestershire County Council Debbie hired Ellen as a Personal Trainer in 2009

“Excellent training in a very relaxed setting. Quality of the course was evident from the first and maintained throughout. The Learning Path/Ellen had gone to some considerable trouble to include all participants and to make the course both interesting and enjoyable. I have found the techniques and skills learnt to be very valuable and I use them regularly.” Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity Tony Waldron Managing Director at Executive Communication Centres Ltd hired Ellen as a Business Consultant in 2005

“When I first investigated NLP as a good forward step both for myself and my team of Consultants I talked to dozens of NLP training providers. All were clearly excited by their subject, but few I felt really understood it and even less where able to then apply it to the business world. I chose to work with Ellen and her team at the Learning Path and the training she has delivered has lived up to my high expectations. NLP is an easy subject to talk about, but a difficult one to really take on board and internalise. It takes time, and the value received is both difficult to see immediately and varies significantly from one person to the next. None the less, I am convinced that Ellen’s training has provided our recruiters with a better understanding of both themselves and others. Invaluable in our line of business, but with clear benefits to any business where their key asset is the workforce.” Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative Pete Freeman Owner & Independent Consultant at Clear Thinking Recruitment Group & Owner & Director at Cohera Specialist Recruitment Group  hired Ellen as a Business Consultant in 2007, and hired Ellen more than once

“I was at a career crossroads. With insight gained from the various ‘courses’ I choose the word carefully as it is an experience and a journey not a lecture, I realised I needed a new direction, made a plan and now in my dream job. I have recommended the free one day taster she offers to colleagues, and I know, even if they choose not to continue, they come back energised with an ability to see things in a new way. The location is magnificent (I loved being able to work outdoors). I plan to continue to progress – working on a plan to fit it in with my great job and great life outside work. And my grown up gap year or two. Happy being happy.” Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative  Coral Musgrave  Community Development Manager at Sandwell Library and Information Service hired Ellen as a Career Coach in 2006, and hired Ellen more than once
