About Liz McConnell
I trained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner at the Quest Institute, Regents College, London, with Trevor and Rebecca Silvestor.
As a trainer and business consultant, working mostly with not for profit organisations, I had long been interested in how people learn and why they continue to behave in certain ways even when their behaviour is unhelpful. So, curiosity is what set me off on this road which has allowed me to integrate my training and the skills I built up over a time and use it to work with people in so many different and interesting ways.
I set up my first private practice in Kingston Upon Thames, built up a steady list of clients and continued to run a successful training, personal development and consultancy business. In the early days I actually kept the two quite separate thinking business clients would not have any interest in any of that 'weird mind stuff.' How wrong I was! In fact, so much of my training has helped me be a much more effective trainer, coach and consultant I decided to integrate the whole lot into a business I call Thinking Room.
I moved from London five years ago and am now building a new client group in Scotland. Living in Bridge of Allan enables clients to reach me from all over Scotland. I also run many of my workshops and training sessions here in the town as transport links are so good. And, when I need to come to you, I have the same airports, stations and road network right on my doorstep.
My family are off exploring their horizons in various areas of the world which gives me enormous flexibility in my life. I don't have set office hours or days and am happy to make an appointment to see people before or after normal working hours or weekends if needed.
I continue to attend professional training and personal development courses to keep me up to date with new thoughts and ideas and there is that darn curiosity which keeps me interested in meeting and hearing from new people.
