The following testimonials are reproduced here with the explicit permission of the clients concerned.
Elisabeth's empathy, dedication and advice is of the highest
order. She has the ablity to identify the root of your problem and help
you resolve your attitude towards it. Working privately with Elisabeth
was so rewarding that we invited her to teach communication skills on
our own teacher training programme. We've never regretted that decision.
At the end of two lengthy therapies the panic attacks that I went for were no better. After going to Elisabeth for a relatively short time these began to ameliorate and are almost gone now.
I also find that being given tools suggested by Elisabeth and using them has made my life so much better. It is possible to change old habits, negative thinking and to alter unhelpful use of language and focus.
It is like the sun has come out and burnt off the early morning mist of the past.
This is really only possible because of Elisabeth's total
acceptance of how a person is, her belief that change is possible and
her ability to provide the right tools at the right time for facilitating
this. This is because of her empathy and provision of a safe place to
begin the work.
I first met Elisabeth Stirling (mezzo soprano) as a fellow musician when we performed the premiere of a new choral work in 2007. Elisabeth was performing the leading role as one of the four soloists.
Before the concert I was hugely impressed by the way Elisabeth handled her nerves. She was calm, focused, alert and proved to be totally in control of her stage presence throughout the performance. As a nervous performer myself I was drawn to her and wanted to know how she managed such confidence. After the concert Elisabeth explained how NLP had influenced not only her ability to communicate as a performer but how it had helped her move on in every area of her life.
Elisabeth became my NLP counsellor and has shown me how to achieve the ambitions in my life that I so desperately wanted and how to take the opportunities that were simply passing me by as I grew older. I had an enormous problem with procrastination which stopped me achieving my goals and led to depression. Through Neuro Linguistic Programming I can realise my potential by approaching tasks with a positive attitude, realistic planning targets and recognition of success when I achieve my goal.
In the last four years I have passed my driving test, resolved my debt problem, formed a working jazz trio and, most importantly, married the woman I love. NLP is not a quick fix; it requires a willingness to change negative habits. NLP gives me a tangible method of doing what I really want to do with my life and Elisabeth has been a wise, kind and encouraging guide to understanding myself.
Truly knowing what I want to do with my life has made
me very happy.
I would not have believed that such immediate positive
results were possible.
The session with you was very helpful; it helped clear
my mind of silly insecurities and put me in the confident, clear, professional
state of mind that I needed to be in for my audition for xxxx (national
opera company, London). The audition was fun, friendly and I was confident
and sang very well. I was very pleased. I heard TODAY that they would
like me to sing for them next season. I’m so happy about this.
I’m so pleased with the work we are doing Elisabeth.
I’ve gained so much confidence, and my attitude to myself and
my capabilities is changing/ evolving. I am committed to “upping”
the stakes and so look forward to future work with you and putting my
insecurities and procrastination behind me. You have transformed things
for me, Elisabeth, and you simply have no idea what this means to me.
I have come to solo singing very late at 57 and I am now 65. A professional musician said that I sound like a young woman and a professional singer. NLP has enabled me to open up to sing from the heart and to expand my range of emotions. It also facilitates better communication and understanding of situations. Elisabeth has helped me to realise that old, unhelpful attitudes and ways of expression can be changed and she has given me the tools to do this. There is great plasticity of the mind.
It is very difficult to put into words just what a brilliant and life changing thing NLP can be. Elisabeth provides a safe environment and is patient and accepting as the struggle to unhook from past ways goes along. She is compassionate and kind as she gently but firmly refocuses you.
I still find my life opening up and expanding.
It’s funny how things seem so simple afterwards,
and the build-up to making the phone call to xxxx made the call such
an anti-climax! Preparing what I was going to say was so important and
being honest to myself made the communication so easy.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, kindness,
love and skill in our sessions so far. I feel as if I am slowly finding
Our last session I found both rattling (you devils’
advocate, you!) and very useful. I had just got myself in one big anxious
pickle and couldn’t find my way out. Afterwards I just got down
and focussed on the jobs in hand.
Elisabeth has changed my way of thinking about my attitude
to people. I know now that I can change and for the better, for myself
and for those around me. This has given me a more positive thought process
and enabled me to move forward with enthusiasm. Thanks Elisabeth.
Having been diagnosed with claustrophobia in 1980, due
to participating in underwater trials during which I experienced near-drowning
in the early 1970s whilst serving in the Royal Marines, I have since
lived with the feelings of often waking up in panic with the sense of
drowning, being trapped and my life threatened, thus making me frantically
seek fresh air to breathe from an open, familiar and unconfined space.
