Where to go with my personal development?


I have qualifications in Training (Level 4), Neuro Linguistics (Practitioner), Leadership (Level 4), Management (Level 3), Mediation (Level 3), Coaching (Level 3 / 4), Hypnotherapy and Time Line Release Therapy.

I have membership of CIPD (Associate), City & Guilds (full), Chartered Management Institute (full), and Institute of Leadership and Management (full).

I am self employed and want to extend my range of qualifications into areas that would enable me to immediately work in those fields that I train in.

I am looking at short courses rather than prolonged study, though suggestions on prolonged study would be good also (you might strike a chord with me!).

I've come up with the idea of studying for BPS (British Psychological Society) Level A and B qualifications for assessment work, but can't make a decision: would this be a good idea?

Any suggestions would be gratefully acknowledged...

  1. Anger Management Course
    Hello Damian,

    Just saw your msg – I’ve got a suggestion for you.

    I’m running a course for people to become A.Tect Anger
    Management Coaches and Anger Management coaching would
    slot right in with your skill set.

    It’s a short four day course at the the end of this month.
    The details are on my website at:

    HOWEVER, please ignore completely the course price
    shown on the website. As it is so near to the date of
    the course and as I still have a couple of places that
    I want to fill on the course I’m happy to offer you a
    VERY reduced price.

    Have a look at all the details, then give me a call on 01582 400111.

    By the way as you will realise when you read the
    webpage, this is far more than a training course it is
    in fact a business proposition.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Practical Experience
    Hi Damian,

    Forgive me if I provoke some thought but I do intend to. As an NLP pratitioner yourself, you will appreciate the power of state change!

    You seem to have already so many qualifications that look and sound impressive. Your quest it seems is to gain even more.

    I left school at 16 with NO qualifications. I now know that this was not because I was stupid, but the teaching style of the school system simply did not match my learning style.

    I’m now a Managing Director of two limited companies and also run a successful coaching business. Do I say this to impress you? No, to impress upon you that it is taking action that will get you towards your goals, I just took action with what I had to succeed.

    Now, just imagine what you can achieve with your already impressive list of qualifications! Inside, you are already what you desire to be! Why wait for another certificate to demonstrate this?

    However, if you already know what you want to do/be/have and specific courses will assist in your quest, then continue your search and remember to apply what you already know and start to make a difference to your life.

    Warm Regards,

    Paul Bellard

  3. Try something a bit different…
    Hi, for something a little different try They have some half day workshops on energisers, storytelling etc which provide an injection of energy and motivation into your training.

    Also, I am going on a workshop in Milton Keynes on using magic in training. For more info drop me a line:



  4. What do you want to do?
    Ermmm… maybe I’ve missed the point here but surely you should decide what you want to get out of learning before embarking on it.

    I agree with the comment below about using your current learning but there’s nothing wrong with further development.

    But you should have a plan and a reason for professional development – if it’s just something of interest then it doesn’t matter what you do but if you want it to enhance your earnings etc. then you should be asking your clients what they want from you, you should be thinking about applications for the options out there. Otherwise you may find you’ve wasted £2000 getting nowhere fast.

    So I think what I’m saying is – do a training needs analysis. Surely the first point of call for any training professional.
