Since being introduced to NLP in 2004, Donna has developed in so many ways, both on a professional and personal level. Her drive was to show people the gift of NLP and bring it into healthcare, primarily. Her goal in life was to be a nurse to care for and look after patients but this was not enough wasn't supporting enough people in the way she wanted. As a ward sister she thought she could facilitate change to benefit the patients but this was only at ward level. NLP enabled Donna to gain the knowledge, confidence and understanding to run workshops and training sessions to bring the nursing teams together. This in turn affected the way managers ran their team; the teams became patient focused and the patients benefited tenfold. This has had amazing success, managers knew what their team wanted from them and vice versa, limiting decisions and beliefs were removed and all gained insight into each other’s needs, weakness and strengths.

Donna developed her own business Inspirational Solutions, In Your Hands Consultancy in 2008, serving her clients on a one to one basis doing life coaching and in their businesses doing team development and team success. What she offers will inspire and motivate you, it will increase you/you're teams self-awareness and empower you so that you/they can be whatever it is you want to be.

Donna is an Author of two books: Psychobabble A Straight forward Plain English Guide to the Benefits of NLP and Make New Year’s Resolutions and Keep Them Using NLP. Donna’s passion for NLP encouraged her to write her books in a simple, easy to use way, providing multiple real world definitions and real life examples of the tools and techniques so that every reader could apply them to themselves. 

Donna is the host of Host of The NLP View Live Radio Show, a unique, live, interactive, internet talk-radio show that discusses  the benefits of self-help through Neuro-linguistic programming. http://www.theorganicview.com/other-shows/the-nlp-view-radio-show/

She is passionate about patient care and improving patient experience and uses her NLP skills exquisitely to work with professionals to ensure they perform to the full potential.
