What Others Are Saying

“ Helen is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met! If you want to be a coach and are trying to decide which coaching training to attend, I highly recommend Academy of Coaching Leadership & NLP! This program is phenomenal and brilliantly facilitated. In the 20+ years I have been in Learning & Development, in all the classes I’ve participated in as a student and facilitator, I’ve never experienced a more masterful facilitator than Helen Attridge. She is warm and funny, clear in her direction, and an EXCEPTIONAL master coach. She creates a learning environment that allows for tons of practice and deep learning. Each activity or skill is explained, then demonstrated, and then the students have an opportunity to practice and then fully debrief their experience. This was the greatest learning experience of my life.”

Helen Attridge

Founder, International Trainer, NLP Master Practitioner, Master Certified Coach

When I completed my own coach certification program almost 2 decades ago I never imagined I would be where I am today. My goal has been to support others in living as their best self while enjoying a happy, balanced and fulfilling life. What a journey coaching has been for me both personally and professionally. Coaching and NLP changed me in ways it is hard to describe, it was transformational and life changing. Now a 20 year veteran of the coach training and leadership development field, I see my role is to guide people past inner and outer obstacles to realize dreams of any scale. The only question is, “how far do you want to go?”
