About Linda Jane
I have had many journeys of self-discovery through my intimate relationships and life.
I was in my 20’s living with my boyfriend. We argued a lot, sometimes past 2 in the morning. We weren’t very good at listening to each other. I got very sick of the merry go round and I set out to find a course that might help us. We agreed to give it a try and we attended a couple’s communication workshop.
This was my first introduction to the benefits of Relationship workshops and couples therapy.
In the workshop we were given the activity of practicing active listening. Our job was to take it in turns to listen to for 5 minutes, without interruption, and then repeat back what we had heard. I thought, great, this is my opportunity to be heard.
I said to my boyfriend: “My issue with you is you get defensive and I never get to fin..….”, when he interrupted me and said: “I’m not defensive!”
I have since moved on from that relationship and continued on my journey. Along the way I have discovered my number one human need being Growth. My thirst for knowledge led me to want to learn how to communicate better and this has been my passion and profession ever since.
For over 20 years as a qualified Master in NLP, and now an Internationally accredited of NLP Trainer. I have coached and collaborated with business owners in developing strategic business plans, with full analysis and implementation.
I have worked with individuals and couples on improving their communication. Using the works of:
Harvelle Hendrix model of Imago therapy
Maslow’s Hierarchy of need
Time Line Therapy
McClelland’s Acquired Needs Theory
Milton Ericson’s unconscious behavioural language patterns
and many more
Recently I have completed the Tony Robbins and Cloe Madanes Core 100 Advanced Relationship Coaching Program, to which the 6 Humans Needs are fundamental.
Cloe Madanes is a clinical Psychologist and member, supervisor and fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family therapy
Together have developed the “Advanced Relationship Program”
I noticed that many successful business people, struggle in their personal lives.
What if.... they had a strategic "Relationship plan"?
With a vision, mission, self assessments and analysis tools, Family Goals, Positive communication strategies and you were coached.....
The Vision would be your family legacy, with clear values, attitudes, behaviours and positive communication practices.
Would it reveal areas for improvement and change?.
What would you gain if you had clear simple practices to be positive role models?
My obsession is to help families avoid unnecessary breakups.
The Highly Successful Relationships program does just that.
I have developed program using cutting edge psychology, strategic intervention tools, strategic planning, transformational science, spirituality, habit change, and practical wisdom.
