    For almost 30 years, David Shepherd has been empowering people to make significant changes in their own lives, with his biggest focus being on helping get people the results they want fast.
     
    As the founder and owner of one of the world’s leading NLP, NLP Coaching, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnosis and Huna coaching companies, he’s helped thousands of people improve their career, health and relationships. Our mission statement is simple, “to make the seemingly impossible, possible” – and his clients experience just that.

     
    Coming from an engineering background, David’s mission has been to precisely distil the science and application of NLP, Time Line Therapy, Hypnosis and other powerful mental technologies into a “business in a box”. He was fortunate enough to be mentored for almost a decade by some of the most respected individuals in the empowerment world.

     
    As opposed to many other trainers, who teach the theory without the benefits of having experienced it in action themselves, David’s trainings go beyond simply equipping people with the knowledge of what to do. His experience of using these technologies in action with people from all walks of life in many countries over many years allows him to provide people with both the experience and confidence to make their sessions work, regardless of what happens in the room.
     
    In this episode, Will has David as his guest and they talk about:
     


    What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and NLP 2.0? How he started on NLP and his journey as a practitioner How to get rid of your limiting beliefs using ‘Timeline Therapy’ What is Hawaiian ‘Huna’? The relationship between NLP and Hawaiian ‘Huna'
