Testimonials

I've worked with Pip in both a personal and professional capacity for the last 3 years. During that time she's helped me with a number of challenges, some big, some smaller - all of which were impacting my life. I am a straight talking, logical person and I must admit I was initially somewhat sceptical of NLP and the work Pip does. I didn't need to be. Working with Pip has proved quite a transformation. It was indeed the best investment I've ever made in myself - to take care of myself, better my career and fulfil my potential. Pip's style is straightforward and to the point, but delivered with genuine passion and an abundance of charm.

I have worked with Pip through my NLP training with Edge NLP. I found Pip to be a very focused and driven individual that is extremely infectious. Pip is a highly professional individual and has a high level of integrity. I have learned a lot from my time training with Pip. I found some great tools and techniques to use in my business and in my personal life. I found myself again! My glass is definitely half full as opposed to what it was as half empty! I would recommend Pip as a person, business person and very good mentor.

I really enjoyed my NLP Practitioner Training with Pip and Edge NLP. We were trained in a small group with a very relaxed interactive style. Pip is always willing to answer questions and has a detailed knowledge of her subject. Pip has a friendly, open, warm style, which helped everyone build in confidence as the week went on. She explains the theory clearly and constantly refers back to practical applications, which was key for me. I would recommend Pip and I am looking forward to training with her again in a few weeks time.

I took the NLP Practitioner Course earlier this year through Edge and taken by Pip Thomas. Pip was a great facilitator and teacher, her style was friendly, low key and informal which suited me and the small group I was part of very well. I think we all engaged with Pip very quickly and felt at ease which made for a really productive learning environment. Pip clearly knows her stuff and was able to draw on her own personal experiences and huge academic knowledge to explain, illustrate and guide us through each part of the course. I feel I learned a huge amount about NLP and also a lot about myself. Undoubtedly my new skills have added into my toolbox and I am certainly better equipped than ever before to do my job.
