I trained in Norway first. The institute I trained with were into spirituality and healing and things. And I was too. From day I was born I had always felt that society, the school system, my parents, my family - everything - were always trying to tell me: "this is the way to do this" and "this is the way to do that". I felt, inside that, no, it wasn't. When I found NLP it was a confirmation for me.
When I went for my trainer's training, I decided that I would go to the source. And that I would train with the best there is. I didn't want any copies, I wanted Richard Bandler to be my trainer. So, I took my trainer's training in 2004, but then, at the last minute, Richard was ill. I came to London with all this anticipation that I would meet him, and the days passed on the course, and he didn't come. In fact he did come in on the last day while I was doing my test on the trainer's training. He interrupted me right in the middle of my test. That course, run by John La Valle, was so much fun.
In Norway, I run an NLP insitute. I have run several actually, but I started this one in 2004. Its name is MetaResource. I do trainings and corporate stuff and one on one. I always have three classes going. I run the courses differently from here because I run it over a longer period. So, my Practitioner runs through 5 months three days. The students have a lot of stuff to do, and they come back and build on it. And I love it.
