When the Dummies team approached me to create Coaching with NLP For Dummies I knew I was in good hands once again. My editorial team, led by Rachael and Brian, worked with incredible attention to detail and enthusiasm to refine my chapters: they naturally adopt a coaching style with their powerful questioning and respectful support.
The content of this book is based on more than a decade of learning about and practising the art of coaching and NLP that builds on many more years in business. All my teachers in the personal development arena have my special thanks for their wisdom, including so many coaches I've connected with over the years. To my amazing clients I always appreciate the endless opportunities to do the work I love and learn from every interaction with you. To Bob and the family, your love and support for me in the background makes all the difference. And finally my thanks to the many thousands of readers who have shown their appreciation by buying the books. In the wish that some of the words in this book make their mark, I leave you with a quote from a fellow coach that: ‘We never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace.’
