I read your book and it is amazing. I have seen your work and you manage to correlate psychotherapy with coaching. We are hearing many times about NLP but what really NLP is?

Few words about Lisa De Rjik that we have the pleasure to interview today for our magazine.

After starting her career in NHS clinical practice as a nurse, Lisa moved into NHS management in 1992, until she left to commence her own shared business in 1997. Using NLP (Neurolinguistics Programming) as a launch pad, Lisa has developed extensive experience as a Coach, Facilitator, Change Agent, Trainer, Supervisor and Mentor. Now a Master Trainer of NLP, Lisa is also accredited by the UKCP as a neurolinguistics psychotherapist and has an MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice focusing on the applied psychology of NLP. Lisa has served as Chair and Vice Chair of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) in a voluntary capacity and was instrumental in working with the government and Department of Health on the statutory regulation of psychology, psychotherapy and counselling, and the White Paper (2007) on the regulation of non-medical professionals. She worked closely with Skills for Health in implementing the ground work for the development of National Occupational Standards for Psychotherapy. Lisa is advisor to the Association of NLP and was also on the steering committee of the first International NLP research conference at University of Surrey.
